The most unpleasant dining experience I've ever had starting with the unfriendly, boarderline rude hostess. Two of my companions had the most dreadful tasting food ever. We don't think the beef in the burger could even be considered meat. The other had some bruschetta with chicken & sundried tomatoes. The bread was soaked through with some rancid tasting oil and there were so many tomatoes on it, that's all you could taste. Believing the manager would want our feed back, we requested to speak to him. The owner, some women, came to our table and was mean, defensive, demeaning and nasty. All she wanted to do was give us some coupon for a free dessert. We wouldn't go back there if the whole meal was free! Stay away!

The main reason we took another couple out to dinner there tonight was because we were given a generous gift certificate and I thought it would be nice check it out for the first time with friends. I tried making reservations, but Scarborough's requires a party of five or more for that. We arrived at 6pm on a Saturday night to a very full parking lot, hopeful that was a good sign. We were told there would be a 20 to 25 minute wait and proceeded to the bar area. I ordered a riesling wine which was served in a stemless glass (which is specific to red wines served at room temperature). Fifty minutes went by before we were seated. My husband ordered stuffed mushrooms specifically stating we were planning to share it as an appetizer. When delivered to the table included we were given no additional plates. Our waitress, although very nice, didn't give us her name until her third or fourth trip to our table until after our dinner was served. The server was different from our waitress and didn't wait around long enough for us to ask for additional needs. My husband I ordered the filet with a side of sauteed mushrooms. We were served steak with a very small amount of raw sliced muchrooms on top. It was satisfying (mainly because we were famished when we arrived), but we won't be back.

I was very disappointed when I dined there Tuesday night. My server assured me there was no gluten in the rice pilaf but this was not true. I had asked him to let the chef know I needed to eat gluten free and thought he did so. Unfortunately I thought I saw barley and macaroni in the mix and sure enough it was there. I was violently ill before even getting out of the restaurant and have had episodes of diarrhea since then. Do not eat there if you have a gluten intolerance until they train their staff.
