SquareMeal Review of Ronnie Scott's

Ronnie Scott’s clientele are, first and foremost, devoted music fans, although everyone who books a spot for noshing gets a table among the tiers. Mind you, it all gets rather glitzy when big names are performing, the Champagne is flowing and the caviar section of the menu has its moment. Thankfully, staff get service out of the way before the band comes on. The kitchen is now cooking up more patriotic dishes (think ham-hock terrine and fish pie) alongside the burgers and other international favourites – artichoke and ricotta tortellini or calf’s liver with confit potato and salsify, for example. Cocktails are also served in the upstairs bar, where a younger crowd gather for funky club nights; Pete King’s ‘nohito’ is a liquid tribute to the club’s late (and teetotal) co-founder.

Square M. bronze reviewer 19 February 2013

The restaurant represents quite an interesting “dine+ listen to live music” concept. Although there are some regular tables, the most of the restaurant is furnished with long tables and chairs, which gives an impression of being in a theatre room. The menu is quite rich with reasonable prices (12-20 pounds for main course). The drink menu however is limited and mainly beer, cider, some cocktails and soft drinks. The food is delicious. HOWEVER, if you wish to come to the restaurant to engage in conversations with your party, you will notice that once the live band starts playing, it is expected of everyone to stop talking. Most of the people in the audience are there for the performer and not for the food and may be quite offended if someone is having conversations while the music is playing.
