The cerviche was so so tasty. Fresh and lovely with such interesting flavours. The John Dory was particularly lovely too and my partner had the sea bass which they enjoyed immensely. The monkfish cheek was perhaps not as impressive but still tasty - more of a winter dish.

Service here is impeccable and in a lovely setting.

I will definitely be going back.

Fantastic food again. Only thing that totally spoiled it. Table behind us decided to shout every word they spoke. By the end of meal head hurt.

we have been to this restaurant a few times. We love the food and the service BUT the portions are getting smaller and pricier, the side dishes are very small and VERY little for £6.50. We think it is a shame for such an expensive 4* restaurant. They are very economical with the salad and side dishes

I went here with a good friend for lunch to celebrate my 40th Birthday and had a lovely time.

From arrival to departure, we experienced great service and nothing felt like too much trouble.

The drinks - cocktails, red and white wine - were lovely and our food was amazing - my friend had oysters and lobster and I had fish. For dessert, we shared the Paris Brest which was truly delicious. I can still taste how amazing it was! I was also given chocolate truffles with Happy Birthday on them which was a wonderful gesture.

I would highly recommend a visit to Scott’s and can’t wait to return.

Service was impeccable with attentive waiting staff. We had 3 courses and each course was served within good time. Restaurant was busy but each table seemed intimate and there was no set time to vacate the table. Starters if chargrilled calamari came as a salad which was a surprise. Main of Dover sole was served beautifully with optional lemon. I could twist the miso grilled cauliflower side and the tomato salad also went down well. The choice of French or English trio of cheeses was good and it went down well with a cup of tea. A great restaurant but a little expensive so save for special occasions.

Bizarrely had to queue at 12PM as the doors do open until 12. It must have been the most well-heeled queue in London.

Cigarettes?

We sat outside as it was sunny. The people next to us were allowed to smoke....the waiter brought them an ashtray! The smoke drifted across to us. Luckily we are on coffee!

It was a surprise to see this!

Food was fab as always.

Unfortunately you’re out of the prawns and lobster that we enjoy there when we come.
I had the lobster thermidor however didn’t think it was very fresh to be honest, the flavours were lacking.
Service was okay, other times it’s been better.

The server we had was rude and took our drinks order incorrectly without apology. When asked to tell how the aubergine parmesan was prepared ,she proceeded to tell us that it was eggplant,like we didn't know ,and we had to ask again to which a short and rude response was given ,then seemed to disappear and a nice young man carried on from there.

Had the Dover Sole (what else would you have at Scott’s!). For starters my wife had the yellowtail sashimi (which she described as a heavenly explosion of flavors) and I had the warm asparagus (a handful of limp but tough spears with a not great sauce (pasty). Fish was (as always) perfect, but our veggie sides were at best ordinary (roasted carrots and slow roasted Mediterranean vegetables). So, on balance the food was good, but for the prices charged should have been great. With a little more care on handling the vegetable dishes this would have been a memorable evening.

It's a posh place, where posh people come to eat and be seen and where ordinary people go to see posh people eat.

The quality of the seafood and the care in the cooking is of the very highest standard.

Mostly Euro waiting staff are cheerful, efficient and accomplished.

Prices are high but justified by the food produced. Good wine list with some quality stuff available by the glass.

Worth a visit if you are driven by quality not price and enjoy the company of very minor celebrities,

I adore Scotts. It is the heart and soul of Mayfair, and I look forward to every visit. We go around twice a week, the food, ambiance and service is always wonderful no matter what time of day. It has a soul that cant be easily re created! If you want to experience Mayfair, Scotts is your place.
