My wife and I had a spectacular meal at Scott's last week. You could have been in coastal France for the quality of the king prawns (or Dublin Bay, I should imagine, but I've never been!), and it's not often you can say that in England.
The service was most friendly and the staff were only too helpful in offering advice on wine.
My daughter would also have been very jealous to see the celebrity who was dining near us, but I shan't name names. Suffice to say I wasn't surprised to see someone so well known eating in what I now know to be one of London's best restaurants.
I could write a whole new review about the honeycomb ice cream desert I had, but I'd make myself too hungry!
A lot of people (including previous reviewers here) rave about this place. I don't understand the raving, but don't get me wrong it is very good.
I came for dinner last night. Everyone else was an hour late so I was at the bar by myself for quite a while, and the pork scratchings, nuts and olives they brought me were brilliant.
When we finally sat down to eat, I was able to choose my food quite quickly. The menu is quite concise, which is good, and I've been a few times before so I've tried most of it. I went for scallops with chilli butter followed by halibut with garlic mash and other good stuff.
It was all great but I have one criticism, which is the same criticism I've had from my previous visits. I had to add salt and pepper to my food. Thats fine in a cafe or in a high street restaurant, but in a place with a reputation and prices like this, that should all be sorted before food leaves the kitchen. Salt and pepper on the table shouldn't be needed. But it was needed here, to get the best out of the fish.

A fantastic place, one of the best seafood restaurants in London - very posh and heavy on the wallet but worth it for the impeccable service and delicious food. The soups are especially good, although beware - after a hearty bowlful you may have no space left for the exceptional main course

An ideal way to end a weekend is with a Sunday evening dinner at Scott’s. From the moment the doorman wearing a bowler hat greets and escorts you into the dining room and you see the fabulously ornate oyster bar, you know you’re in for a treat, and the food, service and ambience deliver just that. Scott’s is glamorous, exciting and a place ‘to see and be seen’.
Scott's is a renowned seafood restaurant in Mayfair. The decor evokes an old school glamour feel. I had the mixed beetroot salad for starters follwed by fillet of cod (I wish I chose a different main course, didn't enjoy it that much) but what really made the meal was the warm bramley apple pie with icecream - never tasted anything soo delicious...
Delighted to get a table at one of London’s most fashionable and gossiped-about restaurants. Unlike many in this category, almost everything about this restaurant is actually very good. The space is opulent and intimate at the same time, with a huge mountain of ice in the middle of the bar covered with colourful crustaceans and molluscs. The lighting is perfectly judged, soft and understated. The service culture is about making you feel like a million dollars - energetic, full of charm and humour, attentive and respectful. Gorgeous art deco style china and silverware.
What’s on the plate? Exquisite morsels of fresh seafood and fish, daintily presented and seasoned with grace and panache. The plateau de fruits de mer rivals that of Balthazar in New York for generosity and variety. The ice is changed several times to keep it as fresh as possible. The wine list is satisfyingly broad, both in provenance and price range.
Scott’s is everything you need from a posh restaurant in a posh street: dazzling service, luxurious décor, a sense of effortless abundance, and steep prices. Marvellous.
loved this place both for lunch and for evening. lovely range from comfort food 'fish pie’ and fish and chips through to more complex dishes. staff were very attentive, although I did get seated at the wrong table first time I visited. Not cheap, but well worth the bucks
Very nice - HIGH end - restaurant. Excellent selection of oysters to start and then nice fish to follow. Service was excellent, the place was buzzing on a monday night and is usually packed out. Recommended for a special occassion or if you have cash to burn!
I’ve been lucky enough to eat in here twice for lunch in the past few months courtesy of my boss! Wow, what an atmosphere….you feel like you are a part of something very special when you eat here. It’s busy and buzzing and the staff attend to your every need. Luckily I didn’t pay but I think our bill for 4 people came to aproximately £500 including some very lovely wine, champagne and oysters! I went for fish first time and took a lemon sole and the second time I think I took pork - both lovely. If you are rich or if you have a rich boyfriend/girlfriend/boss or a special occasion to celebrate, experience this, you’ll be very impressed just dont cry when the bill comes.
The newly refurbished Scotts in Mount Street, Mayfair, London is a delightful restaurant. From the moment you walk in the door you know you are in for a wonderful dining experience. From the opulent Oyster Bar situated in the middle of the restaurant to the delightful staff every aspect of my visit was just perfect it was a pleasure for all the senses! The restaurant is beautifully decorated and there is a real buzz about it, as the fashionable new eaterie relaunched by Caprice Holdings. It is the most ideal to go celebrity spotting if you are into that sort of thing.
However the real joy is obviously the food, days after visiting my friends and I were still ecstatic about what we had eaten, we visit many restaurants in London regularly but its been a long time since we had been served food of such high standard. The menu refreshingly clear compared to many places was hard to put down! With a ridiculous choice of Oysters and very heavily seafood based we knew we were in for a treat, the real giveaway to how good it was going to be came right at the beginning with the butter of all things! So often when you visit a restaurant you have a basket of bread and a few packets of butter dumped infront but oh no! this was something else, this restaurant had even gone so far as to think about the butter! Creamy, salty, I was going to love this place I knew it straight away!
Anyway I began with an Onion and Goats Cheese Tart while my escort had Rock Oysters, a Crab and Cod Chitterlings, where does he put it all! For the main course I was really adventurous and had the traditional Fish and Chips while the other half had Squid. Well, you can’t go wrong with Fish and Chips and my Haddock was battered beautifully, definitely a whole different experience to your typical chip shop experience but it was the Squid that has had us talking ever since. Squid can be a real bind to get right, you either need to do it for a really short time or cook it for at least an hour anywhere in between and you get a chewy horrid nightmare of a dinner. The only place we have ever eaten squid that is done to perfection is in Spain, lets face it the Spanish know how to cook their seafood so it was with some trepidation we ordered it. When it came to the table just looking at it and smelling it let me know that Iwas going to have to enjoy all of it.! It was absolutely nice, cooked to perfection, the knife just slid through it, the smell of garlic! Honeslty just thinking about it now makes me want to eat it all over again! It was just fantastic, it didnt last very long on the plate, and well since visiting Scotts I have bought Squid a few times just to try and do it the same as at the restaurant and while rather nice it just reminds me of how truly wonderful theirs was!
Now clearly the most important part of dinner is dessert, obviously it was the first thing I had chosen before I had even decided on my main and Ihad the Bakewell pudding, not your ordinary lump of dry pastry with a bit of almond and cherry jam on top oh no there is an absolute master of pastry working at Scotts just delicious flaky pastry a wonderful almond paste with the cherry “jam” altogether it was gorgeous. .
This finally brings me back to the staff, on our visit Don the doorman was the first face we met in his traditional top hat and what a gentleman he was! The ladies on the cloakroom and reception to the floor managers and the attentive waiters they were all very friendly and attentive without being overbearing, infact Ican honestly say that it was just as much them and their ability to make you feel like you were the only people in the restaurant they really wanted to take care off as the food that really made Scotts such a wonderful place to go.
What about the cost? Well our bill came to 180 however we did have 2 bottles of wine, water, 4 Starters, 2 mains, 1 pudding and coffee. Infact considering the restaurant is in Mayfair one would expect it to be really expensive but its not, there are very reasonably priced wines on their list and the food is all very well priced. If you go onto the website for CapriceHoldings the group that own Scotts and click on the link for the restaurant you can view the Menu and the prices so are better able to budget for your visit which considering what a worrier I can be I found very reassuring prior to our visit.
Go to Scotts, it truly is the most wonderful experience!
This is my favorite restaurant in town. I love it. The service is fantastic and the food is second to none. The oyster bar is great when you're just out with friends, very laid back and proper Colchester oysters - amongst a wider selection.The restaurant is fabulous for a good night out. They do a great monkfish, and their wine list is spectacular - I had the most amazing Meursault when I went Thursday, and I wish I'd have asked for the label. They have the most amazing art collection in there too. It's expensive, but well worth it. I go to J Sheekey a lot too, but out of both of them I think you get more value for money here. Good place to take someone you care about a lot!!!
