We attended for a special occasion.
The atmosphere of the restaurant was lovely and the door staff were very accommodating.

However, after being seated and having seen how other diners were being treated, it appeared that we were made to feel a little unwelcome with glances and whispers from staff- alongside very little talk from the staff who had been behaving as mentioned above (despite rapport being clearly established with other tables in the vicinity).

The food was absolutely delightful, with both of us opting for whole lobsters. The Jasmine and Peach Bellini was also outstanding, and prices were good.

I would like to add that one lady in particular was fantastic, and kindly brought something over for the special occasion, and for this I express many thanks: unfortunately, by this point, the prior experience had resulted in great anxiety.

The whole lobster with garlic butter is highly recommended, as well as the fried cauliflower. There was an excellent selection of wines and the food was truly outstanding.

I just hope that some members of staff can view this and perhaps become more aware of anxious diners- as we would have become regular diners based on the food, but the evening became slightly uncomfortable due to factors mentioned above.

Outstanding food and service as usual. Adapted very well to new safety regulations. Much smaller wine list than usual but I suppose that's perfectly understandable.

I personally think it was too busy but given the current climate and circumstances, it is understandable. It was quite disappointing to hear that there were a lot of items that weren’t available (dinner was at 8PM on Monday), especially when one of the non-available dishes was the specific reason we came to dine at Scott’s. Also, our order wasn’t huge but actually really simple and the waiter had to come back to double check what sides we wanted - there’s no shame in writing things down, why not do it? Champagne, dessert and tea were great.

Understandably due to C19 restrictions but felt rushed and when I suggested we finish off at the bar as they needed the table I felt they made us feel awkward. As the bill was high I was not as impressed as previously.

Perfect Scotts only spoiled by the senior area manager in the back section of the restaurant who was appalling at handling a mistake made by one of her team. Po faced and didn't own the problem.Accused me in front of my guests at this being my issue!!
As usual great food, venue and service from everyone else
Just sort your management out!

Service was very bad, very rude staff and customers. They cannot and do not say thank you to us after we finsihed eating (no greetings). I felt very uncomfortable when I was eating in the restaurant. I never expect how a highly reputable restaurant in the heart of London can treat us, customers, in a completely disgrace manner. I ate at Scott’s for the first time and never have I ever been to a restaurant that treat us as if we did not pay for our dining experience and treat us in the worst and rudest manners a restaurant ever does. I hope that Scott’s will improve their service and kindness to all customers in the future.

We went for our wedding anniversary. We arrived and immediately noticed how loud and noisy the atmosphere (very different to our wonderful experience in August). We were seated in a gangway leading to the kitchen and the private dining room which was being used. We moved to a banquette seat which was just as well as the group who sat down behind us were corporate colleagues on a very good night out clearly on company money. They arrived fairly drunk and loud already and continued to drink etc and get louder. The swearing also increased the further the evening wore on. The other side of us was another corporate group of colleagues who were arrogantly loud on espresso martinis and wine (bear in mind this was still only 7:15pm). They started betting drinks and forfeits and throwing bread and napkins - having worked on a trading floor I felt I was straight back there. Very disappointing and yobbish behaviour allowed at Scott's. Not a single member of staff slowed their drinking down or asked them to consider other diners. The service for us initially was attentive and then as soon as we had eaten our main course we struggled to get anyone's attention to order further food or coffee etc. We absolutely loved Scott's but I am not sure if Covid has created a feeling of "last night out before another lockdown" attitude or if this rowdy behaviour is normal at Scott's. When we left we mentioned it to the manager and although horrified I think it isn't a great reflection on the management if they had no idea this behaviour was going on...although they were walking around the restaurant all evening so I am not entirely sure how they could have missed it. They definitely would have seen the rowdiness.

Delightful staff, easy to get attention and excellent skills at keeping your glass topped up.
Oysters were quite creamy - I’d forgotten that they are only just out of breeding - I wish I’d known this - they were just OK. My smoked eel was delicious, my wife’s escargot and monkfish were very interesting and an enjoyable combination good. We shared oven cooked turbot - nicely filleted by our waiter. It was lovely. Wines were nice but the bottle I chose cost £72 - it retails for only around £12 at many uk outlets.
Total bill £311 for the 2 of us.

Scotts is wonderful. I took my boyfriend here for dinner for his birthday and we both really enjoyed it. The food was lovely and the staff was very attentive. I then went again with my friends for lunch and it was perfect - showing that it is good for both occasions. The bill is pricey though, but very much worth it. Brilliant for celebrations or casual lunch/dinners. If your ever in Mayfair I recommend!

Visited Scott’s on Monday evening for my girlfriend’s birthday. To say that we had a good evening was an understatement. The atmosphere was just right for these Covid times. Not too busy but not quiet either. I was very grateful that we were given a table of the type I had requested. The oysters and the scallops that we had to start were large and fresh. Having been to Sheekey’s a fair few times in the past (though this was the first time I had visited Scott’s) I knew the kind of quality to expect and it was more than delivered. For main course we both had the lobster thermidor which was absolutely brilliant, as were the fries and the creamed spinach. The peach melba both looked and tasted delicious for dessert (a real work of art) and Scott’s provided a kind birthday message on my girlfriend’s chocolate fondant with pistachio ice cream. The service was impeccable (friendly and professional) throughout (a bit of a contrast to our visit to the Ivy Asia earlier on in the year). The tables were separated with discreet glass screens to avoid Covid transmission and the table even came with a small bottle of decent smelling hand sanitizer as well (as opposed to the large pump bottles of pungent sanitizer found elsewhere if at all). It was great to be in a restaurant that wasn’t using Covid as an excuse for sub-standard service. I had considered going to Sexy Fish but the Reservation team confirmed that they had a DJ even on Monday nights. After our experience at the Ivy Asia in St Paul’s, where the food was good but we could not hear ourselves think, let alone hold a conversation without shouting at each other, I thought it was perhaps wiser to go with Scott’s - a decision that I did not regret! My girlfriend had a great evening on her birthday. I had a great time. Overall a memorable night.

Booked for lunch at 2.30 pm with my older daughter a couple of days in advance. She wanted to sit at the bar/counter but they did offer us a seat at a table. She was glass of Champagne and I was Bloody Mary. Restaurant full but not bursting.

Ordered oyster selection with wild boar sausages and slightly disappointed to find that the sausages came in a separate side dish (not much Chef-ing involved in the preparation). Selection of oysters not explained but when asked I was pleased to have guessed correctly. Added a couple of oysters fried in batter with chilli and avocado and they were the best of the lot at £5.45 each. All the usual accompaniments there as well.

I always have John Dory here and it has changed to accompanying artichoke and spinach rather than razor clams. You can still have clams in XO sauce and I nearly had that because I’ve never been able to make it myself. Daughter had Turbot and we shared chips and broccoli. She had a glass of Meursault but I couldn’t find anything on the wine list which was too pricey and can of Guinness in a chilled glass was a great choice with fish and oysters.

Meal finished off with dessert, choccy truffles and coffee. We could see them making ceviches and they all looked good.

Yes it’s expensive but you pay for the real estate, the atmosphere is great and the greeter treated us exactly the same as the uk’s best known former supermodel (KM) who popped in for a while. Definitely be back and maybe try something different to John Dory but stick to the oysters.

A simple early supper for four, done as you would expect with great aplomb. A special mention for the steak option which is available for the non fish eaters, for such a notable fish restaurant Scott’s knocks out one hell of a rib eye, it’s as as good as anything you’ll get around town.
