Allmusic 4/5 stars[1]

In his review for Allmusic, critic Alex Henderson wrote: "... the distinctive guitarist was still quite capable of embracing standard hard bop, which is exactly what he does on Live at Ronnie Scott's... There are no hints of pop-jazz or NAC music on this disc. Montgomery is in fine form on "Wes' Easy Blues" as well as performances of standards like "I'll Remember April" and "Body and Soul." Although not quite essential, Live at Ronnie Scott's is a CD that lovers of Montgomery's straight-ahead playing will appreciate."[1]
