Attentive staff, good quality food, very noisy and not conducive to a quite night out. Bar service was excellent but bar seating is not ideal for dining in my opinion.

This place was packed on a Tuesday night. About half business people, half people out for a meal. Make no mistake this is an expensive restaurant. We were staying at nearby hotel, and needed a break from fried fish and chips. Wanted healthy, straight forward fish. Service very attentive, noise challenged. Sat in banquette against wall so think that helped. Bar area hopping. Can reserve spots there. Had one of the best octopus dishes ever. Octopus carpaccio. So delicate and delicious. Basically they make a terrine of the legs, then slice paper thin pieces with some olive oil. Would go back just for that. The rest of the food very good. Large wine list with some nice french white burgundies. Desserts looked ridiculously large. Whole place reminded me of Estiatorio Milos in terms of food, and decor of an American steakhouse (Gibsons Chicago or similar) dark wood paneling, boys club vibe. Most men had jackets, no tie.

The service was excellent with a call to confirm the reservation on the day. The waitress found a table for us rather than eat at the bar with that notice and I was impressed. The food was delicious and the cocktail too. The service once we were there was excellent too. Full marks for the quality of the fish and for the cooking. I shall certainly recommend to family and friends!

Everything was far too quick, despite being in the last sitting (I think - 8:30pm) we felt harassed, pushed, unwelcome and over our allotted time, no sooner had we finished one course than the next appeared on the table! Not perfect for a 40th Wedding Anniversary and a bill approaching £400 for two!

I spoke to the manager, who was very understanding and apologetic, and frankly he somehow prevented me from making my views felt much farther afield, if you see what I mean!

I'm not looking for any special treatment nor compensation, being a businessman in a consumer driven sector, I actually abhor that, but am paranoid about top quality service, especially when you pay for it! As it happens, I have been to your restaurant on many occasions before, mainly as a guest, when I have not experienced such circumstances, so let's either put it down to 'who you are' or alternatively some over zealous staff who are encouraged to keep the table turning over! Either way, best learn from it!

Thank you,

Peter J Harrison

The food was very good: fresh ingredients, and very well prepared dishes. The wine was of comparable quality - nothing negative to say there. The only improvement point would be the service - in a few instances, it took 5 mins to get waiters' attention. Nonetheless, I would recommend Scott's to my friends

Despite our reservation, there was overbooking and we didn't get a seat. The lady at the reception was very rude and uncooperative. So we had to leave, looking for another place at 8 : 30 PM ! I strongly advice to avoid such a restaurant.

Took a while to eventually be shown to our seats at the bar (previous occupants slow to leave), but once we were seated the service and food was exceptional. Love sitting at the bar when we're just out 'a-deux' - find it much more intimate ! Will definitely return.

It's been a wonderful experience at Scott's. Feeling welcoming at first then with great staff for food recommendation follow with the freshness of the food itself. Highlight of the night are the mocktails , definitely one of the best I have had in my UK trip. Highly recommend for any occasion.

We went for a quick lunch at the Counter to celebrate our birthdays and they took 50 mins to serve the food once ordered - we'd drunk our wine, eaten our bread and were just about to leave and get lunch at Pret when it finally arrived. It was beautifully cooked, but the overall experience was ruined by the delay.

Visited Scotts on a Sunday, sat at the bar counter and thoroughly enjoyed it. The welcome was warm, the food was excellent, and the bar counter staff were extremely helpful and attentive. Quite pricey, but this is to be expected. We'll go back and would recommend.
