I wasn't sure what to expect given that their brunch menu is pretty unique. All I can say is that everything we ordered was fantastic. The Potato Nachos and Peanut Carrot Hummus appetizers were both excellent and very addicting. Someone in our party said the Bayou Benedict (Spicy Pulled Duck, Poached Eggs, Cajun Hollandaise over Black Bean Jambalaya Croquettes) was... More

Great place for brunch with the kids. I love the huevos rancheros. The banana dessert is tasty as well. Sometimes service can be slow but the food is always good!

A friend of mine wanted to do brunch, so he found this place. The decor is really nice. Service was a little slow, but the food was really good. I got their "Monte Cristo" which is a french toast sandwich.

I had no idea there was such a nice reasonably priced place for dinner so close to us until our son and daughter-in-law suggested dinner at Scion. I enjoyed the Jumbo Lump Crab Reuben sandwich! Full of delicious lump crab meat! One of my companions enjoyed the Chicken Pot Pie with a thin pastry-like crust. He has a good appetite... More

A colleague and I were able to walk to Scion for our hotel for a business dinner. The restaurant was virtually empty for a Monday night so we were wary. We enjoyed the service to much that my colleague returned the next night! The crab cakes are exceptional and a definite must-have. The menu is diverse and certainly has something... More

Came at ten am Sunday morning. Nobody there. Prompt service. Strong coffee. The wife loved her bloody mary and French toast. I had the huevos rancheros with added chorizo. Different from the traditional version but amazingly good. Chorizo was kinda flavorless though oddly. Go for brunch. It's wonderful.

Threw a going away luncheon for a co-worker here. Hadn't tried it before because it's in an apartment building, but I'd heard good things. The food and the noise level were good. I think our waitress was stretched a little thin, but it wasn't too bad. Had the Surf & Turf Burger. It was good!

I am not sure how long Scion in SS has been open but it made a good first impression. While they did not have an outside patio like Dupont, the inside dining room is spacious and the bar is also much nicer (in my opinion). Like the first Scion in DC, beers are given a strong presence. The beer list... More

Brought about 20 folks here for a happy hour. Our contact Lynne was great to work with in advance of the evening as well as onsite. Our bartender Matt was awesome! He knew so much about all their craft beers. He caught most of our group's names and asked what each person liked in a beer. He then offered up... More

We live nearby and came for happy hour. This place is kind of in a condo, so it feels a bit like a hotel bar. Nothing wrong with that, it's just a bit overpriced (especially the food). However, they have a great beer and wine selection, much more interesting than a lot of places in the surrounding area. Nice atmosphere,... More
