Party of 3 for an early dinner. I chose to sit next to our host as she speaks very softly so I could carry on a conversation with her. Less than 2 minutes later, the restaurant owner (as I was told by my host), firmly suggested that I change seats, as I was encroaching on the adjoining table. I politely said "no", and began to look over the menu. The owner then, with a more forceful and demanding tone requested that I change seats! Diners nearby were now noticing the tone of his comments as well! I commented "I am here for an enjoyable dining experience, I am not interested in moving, and please leave us alone". At that point, he gave up and walked away. The exchange was unpleasant, unprofessional and was not warranted! This interchange was a "downer" on the meal. Too many other restaurants to visit when you are treated as a guest and not as an enemy!!

Lovely restaurant with a nice bar area. Server was very nice. He brought out a key lime pie for my mother's birthday. Food was good. We had the mussels and octopus for appetizer, white pizza with goat cheese, and banana fudge for dessert

Scotty`s is an oasis in the sea. While being in a non descript "strip center", the warm welcome, the white table cloth ambiance, the variety of menu items....from burgers & pizza...to fine dining dinners ARE THE BEST.

Slipping since our last visit. I think the experience was spoiled by the fact we were there on a Monday, and staff seemed short handed. We had one check on the food after it was brought to our table, and we had to ask the young man busing the to have our waiter bring the check. Part of the difficulty was the activity in the bar, where many customers were enjoying drinks and appetizers, leaving the dining room short-staffed. Our food was so-so. We might try again, but never on a Monday.

I wasn't so sure when I pulled up and saw the restaurant was in a strip mall, but as soon as I entered the restaurant all my concerns faded away. The interior is beautiful and cozy. The food was outstanding and the servers super friendly. This is one of those hidden gems. Go and ENJOY!

Another patron was on the phone doing transactions loudly for over 30 minutes near our table. I asked the waiter how they allow that and he shrugged his shoulders. I like Scotty's for the peaceful atmosphere and this was not a good experience. I don't spend $50 to listen to someone's conversations. His companion was frustrated and she left after about 10 minutes.

Always great — consistent. Sat in Bar area— happened to be a table of 4 women next to us that thought they had to impress everyone by seeing how loud they could be — unusual occurrence, but it was in Bar area.
Scottys is a great spot — good food, wine and drinks and decently priced.

The food & service have always been outstanding . Tonight was a disappointment. Our waiter was polite, but distant and paid little attention to our table & did not ask if we would like more bread or butter or if we would like more wine. At the end he did ask if we would like coffee, but never bothered to ask if we would like dessert even though the reservation had been marked as Special Occasion. Then when we asked for the bill, we waited about 20 minutes and finally left our table & walked to where the waiter was behind the bar. When asked what on earth was taking so long, he said there was a problem with the computer. Then he showed the paper on which he had written all of my credit card information, saying he would keep trying to put it through. I immediately objected & insisted he destroy the credit card information & that I would pay cash. This was the first time I ever was disappointed at Scotty’s and especially since it was to celebrate a Special Occasion. The wait staff has always been so warm and friendly and so efficient, but sadly not tonight!

Good food and service. Scotty the owner is very attentive and nice. We felt like we were guests in his home when we walked in and he served us drinks at the bar (he came out from behind the bar to hand us our drinks). The service throughout dinner was excellent, and the food was very good. The room was on the small side, a bit dark but not noisy. They only drawback is that it is not a very lively restaurant - if you want a quiet meal - this is for you. If you are of a younger crowd and looking for more excitement, maybe not the place for you. It is in a strip mall and this was our first time dining here - so the location threw us off as we pulled up. But all in all very good.

In a strip mall, so you'd never notice Scotty's from Sheridan Road, but it's got great food & great service. Really professional servers. Quick service for drinks and delivering bread to your table. Cocktails contain premium-not cheap-alcohol with quality ingredients. Our guest from Shenzen, China took a business card from Scotty's so she could return on her next visit!

We found this restaurant to be very disappointing. The food was fair, at best. We ordered the veal piccata , which traditionally has a light lemony sauce. This was one of the most expensive dishes on the menu and it was smothered in a brown gravy that was very greasy and there was no taste of lemon at all.

When the owner/manager came over to our table, he was told that we did not like it, but he did not reduce the bill for this dish. We were offered to replace the dish, but did not wish to do that. It would have been proper to remove this item from our bill, but the management did not.

I would not go back to this restaurant based on our experience.

3 people started with mushroom soup (delish). 2 people had trout and they finished every morsel. 1 person had the sausage, peppers and rice and finished every morsel. I had the pork chops with grilled potatoes and Brussels sprouts but I couldn't finish it and took one of the 2 chops home (it was delish). We finished off with Creme Brule made with Baileys (delish).
