"The food was fresh, tasty and amazing. The fish we ordered was cooked to absolute perfection. The garnishes were a compliment to all the dishes that brough the level of taste new heights. The greens were fresh and perfectly balanced. I can not recommend this restaurant enough."

"I used Open Table to reserve a table at Scutra Restaurant in Arlington MA for dinner this week. My expectations were relatively low, but the location was central to our group . I was meeting two of my college roommates from out of state. All three of us were blown away by the quality of and care put into both the food and drinks which were outstanding. Our server was extremely knowledgeable, attentive and flexible. The menu was interesting and diverse. The eel appetizer and duck entrée were particularly amazing. I will be returning to Scutra sooner than later and will recommend this restaurant to all of my friends and relatives."

"It had been a while since I'd been to Scutra; it seemed a bit less formal and the food a bit less fussy this time which I found to be a good thing. Lots of choices, the food tasty and the wine excellent. However, we found our waitperson to be a bit overbearing which detracted from our overall dining experience."

"Relatively small place. In a corner off the bike trail in Arlington. Full bar. Tables well laid out. Some famililes some young adults, some older adults. Loved the spinach/warm raspberry dressing. The raviolis my spouse said were great and the porkchop with a wild rice risottos also goor."

"Although there was some "over-reach" in some of the dishes (too many ingredients) for the most part, the meal was flavorful, satisfying, well-prepared and presented. The mussels and the goat cheese tower were particularly good. The risotto was a bit too rich, but the meatloaf of all things was very good."

"Been to Scutra several times and have always been very satisfied with the food and service, but this last visit (on a Friday in prime time) the restaurant truly went above and beyond:
(1) I called at the last minute and asked to change the timing of our reservation as one member of the party was caught in traffic. The restaurant, which turned out to be very busy that evening, accommodated. (2) When one of the specials for the evening was sold out, the restaurant again stepped up and turned an appetizer into the focal point of a very tasty entree dish. Both of these actions were in response to simple queries of the "would it be possible" sort and both were done without hesitation or irritation. The food and service were, as usual, excellent. The noise level was very energetic given the full house and holiday spirit, but we were able to converse and even linger over our meal. Thank you Scutra for your flexibility and a most enjoyable evening.

"We have gone to Scutra maybe 6-7 times over the years, sometimes with friends. For some reason, it always surprises us how good it is. By now we should expect it, but because of its reasonable prices we always think our very good meal was a fluke. This time was no exception. They also have special weekday deals that are an even better value, such as the one my husband had. My coconut breaded shrimp were good, probably the weakest thing we ate. But the whole branzino I had for my main was outstanding. The fish melted in my mouth, and vegetables underneath deliciously absorbed the seasonings from the fish. My husband had a strudel of salmon, goat cheese and spinach for an appetizer that was unique and delicious. His swordfish main was cooked perfectly with wonderful flavors. Even the bread and olive oil we had while deciding what to order was a nice improvement over the previous tapenade. Don't let the location next to an insurance agency dissuade you from expecting fine dining. This is really good food at a reasonable price. Great if you live in the area."

"The small place is surprisingly larger on the inside. Tonight they had a two course special for $24.95. I got the warm spinach salad and the swordfish. The food and flavors all worked well together! The drawback was two baby carrots and a small portion of wild rice and squash. I am guessing the starch size was around a half cup. The meal felt healthy and fresh. The people kept coming in tonight!"

"I really liked my experience here. Price is roughly $25 per plate. The atmosphere was nice. and the waitstaff were kind and obviously loved what they do. The food was different and innovative, but they executed well and it was a fun night trying new things. Obvious that a creative chef is developing the menu here."

"Scutra is one of my favorite restaurants. Not only is the food really, really good, the staff is extremely personable and friendly. Chef Didier is Belgian French and worked in several well-known restaurants before he and his wife opened his own restaurant in this hidden corner of Arlington.
Scutra is rarely empty, even when the other fine dining restaurants in Arlington are lagging, because of the consistent quality of the food, the beautiful presentation, the creativity of the dishes, the fresh and local ingredients, and the range of dining options--from gourmet burgers and pizzas to beautifully presented fish, vegetable, and meat entrees.
Scutra is a pleasant place to sit and linger over a meal, carry on a conversation with the staff, sip a great glass of wine, and anticipate a delightful house-made dessert. There is a single TV screen over the bar, in this day and age where many restaurants surround you with them.
The real stars of the show are the staff, who know their customers by name and guide diners in the right direction, with lots of personal attention. They know the food and the wine choices, and love what they do.
I am especially fond of the two-course specials on Thursday nights. For $24.99, you can select an appetizer and an entree, as good as anything else on the menu. You usually have a choice of two or three appetizers, and two or three entrees, and the choices change every week."

"Chef Didi is creative and we always feel as the meal was made just for us. However this night it really was! They offered a fresh whole snapper and we shared a large fish - Chef came out to let us know it was taking a little longer due to the size. Well a short wait did not disappoint - we felt as if we were on a Caribbean island! The food and personal service here are always phenomenal with Louie as our server/bartender extraordinaire. If you have not tried Scutra - go there now!"
