Normally I would scribe the top. But check the front overhang on all tops before you make the decision. If you take 5/8” out of one, will it pull it back to the front of the cabinet? I would hate to go to all that work and then the drawer tops are visible.

With those wide gaps and a wood top, I would scribe filler pieces using the same material/color in 4/4 material.

Good luck

This is my thoughts exactly. There’s also the concern of (even if it was a smaller piece and easily removed etc.) reciprocal loss of overhang on the front end after scribing, to me, given that there’s gaps of just under 1/2” moving all the way up to 3/4” in one spot, wouldn’t this just look bad taking away so much overhang from scribing at that point?
