Alum of Rubicon (Exec Chef), Coyote Cafe

Menu for Today, March 25

  1. Background
  2. Reviews

As a young man, Scott Newman thought he wanted to be an actor, so the creative atmosphere of the professional kitchen was a perfect fit. He started his wild-ride cooking career in San Francisco working at Masa’s under Julian Serrano, and then moved to the tinsel of Los Angeles to work with Joachim Splichal at the highly acclaimed Patina. As Possonier, he honed his natural love of fish, while continuing to develop a wide-ranging repertoire of his own.

He came to San Francisco to help open Rubicon as Sous Chef and would go on to become Executive Chef.

With his family in the Southwest, Scott relocated first to Santa Fe to be the chef of the Coyote Café, and then to Arizona to be a partner in a new multi-locale restaurant group.

But the allure of opportunity in the multi-cultural Bay Area brought him back as a private chef and caterer.

Include bread, breadstick or roll with each meal would make things more complete.

Hmm- I usually love garlic but the meat ball didn't taste very fresh and had too much over powering it

Meat was tough and missed out on mushrooms in one of the orders. Sad, was looking forward to this meal, as I love short ribs. Tasted more like tough stew meat, unfortunately.

Zero flavor. Tasteless meatballs. Sauce without any personality.

By Hassan Movahhed
Meat looked nothing like short rib. More like sliced pot roast. Definitely nothing like the picture. Three slices of beef not close to dark and carrots were the peeled snack size baby carrots from the market. Polenta was too mushroomy. Disappointing!

Meal was terrific except that the Broccoli was well done instead of cooked 1/2 way and crunchy.

Beef too tough to eat. No flavor. Carrots and polenta ok
2  Stars
By Ruth J Wisnom
The potatoes were great. The salmon had no flavor, bland, "fishy" taste. It needed a basil butter to add on top or something, And the kale was bitter--there are ways to take the bitterness off kale and give it flavor. Not a meal I would reorder.

Horrible. We ordered this many times before & were happy. Meat was SO tough, we had to use a should fall apart (& has in the past). Vday gets a bad rep for sub par food, but this awful. Would love (expect?) a refund...

This was just not very tasty nor the meat tender. Serviceable but not memorable.

Kinda fishy

I literally received to pieces of roasted potato. That is not a full portion. There was very little kale under the salmon. I noticed throughout the last couple of orders that quality and portion has steadily gone down.

Sauce was not very appealing...would prefer a sweeter sauce
3  Stars
By Lisa Sellers
Nice concept but not as good as I had hoped. Polenta was a bit watery (would have been MUCH better with potatoes). Carrots were overcooked and were baby carrots not the ones pictured. Good in concept, Execution could have been a bit better.

It was too spicy for my elder parents.

Needs more salt and would benefit from whole lemons for more citrus flavor

By Luis Marengo
The carrots in the picture are NOT what we received. We got baby carrots like you buy by the bag.

There was something weird in the meatloaf that I couldn't identify. It led to bad breath and didn't taste good.

Yum hubby loved it that says a lot will definitely order again thanks Munchery !!!

By Dori Sullas
The meat was too chewy, not "fall apart tender" as stated. There was not enough gravy for the polenta and meat and it was not very flavorful. I have had this dish before and it was much better then. Many reviews make this same comment. Fix it!
