    First time I came here I was disappointed, not with the food, which was very good, but service was slow and a couple of errors. By comparison with the Mayfair branch it was a let down. But today I was so much happier. Service was excellent all round, we all got our food together, drinks were attended to promptly, and the food was simply fabulous. I will be back.

    Was not expecting to have a table upstairs which is more casual and frankly not as special. That was disappointing. The app should specify where your table will be as the dining experience is entirely different. Sometimes more casual is just right but it was not for this occasion. There were restrictions on food as they had run out of fish if the day, all the prawns and jersey royals. On a Friday night. Sounds inconsequential but no prawns meant the seafood platters at this fish restaurant and a good third of the menu were unavailable. The night was saved by the excellent staff. Do better Scott’s.

    After a chaotic reception, we entered the restaurant where the service was very high standard, and the food was amazing, a true delight. There is a price tag, do check. However we were so pleased, that we are thinking to come back with my brother & wife and treat them.

    We loved our special evening celebrating my husband’s birthday. Special thank you for giving him a little birthday gift on the plate. I really appreciate it! We found the seating on the bar a bit intimidating. We heard all the talks of the bar stuff, as an example. It’s ok for a drink but we won’t be booking it for a meal again, that’s for sure.

    Excellent service at the bar. Personable and very focused on service and presentation. A risk of being stuffy but we got some smiles and even a sense of humor. Good work ! (Maybe have the sushi /prep cook manager give her feedback to her employees with more discretion)

    Such an excellent dining experience in all ways. Scotts has a prime location on the Riverside at Richmond to be enjoyed from the large windows. The overall decor is of a 5 star hotel with beautiful restrooms. The Restaurant decor is impressive apart from the questionable art work (not all appropriate) The seafood and fish varieties were all well presented and flavoursome. The staff were very attentive to details and listened to the guests particular requests. We were all satisfied and happy with our meals. We will definitely recommend to others.

    Lovely setting. Staff attentive. Sadly food lacking heat and flavour: had the ‘special’ which was fish pie (off cuts we were later told..?). It arrived cold. Sent it back. No offer of a drink on the house whilst we waited. New pies hot but no flavour , sauce blobby. I’m no chef but can actually make a better sauce myself! Truffles were delicious. Unfortunately doubt we will return :(

    Made a 5.30pm booking for 4 for my husband’s 60th birthday well in advance. Early booking due to the fact we had 7.30pm theatre tickets after. We arrived on time and were seated at the bar as our table wasn’t quite ready. 5.50pm I had to ask about our table and was told it wasn’t ready yet. 5.55 we were seated next to a very noisy family with 3 small children. No problem with children obviously but I could see 3 other tables by the windows free and was annoyed that we weren’t sat there as they were told in advance it was a special occasion. We asked to move tables and they did accommodate us which we were grateful. By this stage it was 6.10 and we needed to be out by 7.15 at the latest. Our meal was so rushed unfortunately and I feel that the occasion was ruined. I’m not sure why they took so long to seat us. I have never written a bad review before but I do feel for what we paid for our dinner, it certainly was not worth it. Poor management but the wait staff were very nice and they did do their best to get our order in quickly etc. I won’t be returning to Scott’s.

    We love intimate and chic Scott's in Mayfair. Could the Richmond experience in a large two story premises be as good? Yes, even better, with a grand room with lovely on-the-river views as you enter and upstairs to a smaller restaurant and bar with an outdoor terrace and the best interior decoration we have seen in London. The three course set meal was excellent, and the service also perfect.

    I am absolutely shocked at this evenings level of service - totally unacceptable having to ask on multiple occasions to get things right. And the service was painstakingly slow. This is not an evening or a Scott's experience to remember. I asked for the manager to share my grievance no sign of he/ she so had to leave.

    This is my second time to Scott’s in Richmond and it is a far superior experience to the one in Mayfair (although also excellent). Service was outstanding, no rushing us for orders or rushing us out (our lung finished at 7!). Food equally amazing and the room itself (we ate downstairs) was spectacular. Can’t recommend highly enough.

    Had to wait over an hour for a cold fish platter. It was my mums birthday so we were very unimpressed.
