We ate here as a group so were limited on our menu choices. This was a little disappointing as I would have preferred fish and only salmon was offered along with chicken & steak. However, appetizers were ordered and I can say that the calamari was excellent as was the crab cakes and shrimp cocktail. The venue is nice and... More

I went to Scott's last weekend and we had a fantastic meal. Started with good wines and oysters for appetizers. Then on to the Lobster Bisque and Caesar Salad. The seafood dishes were very high quality and the staff was very attentive. The restaurants has a nice view of the downtown and you can even sit outside in the patio... More

Having been turned away with a 45 minute wait at my first dining option (just two blocks from my hotel) I ventured another four blocks to Scott's Seafood with low expectations and a hearty appetite. Sitting atop a parking garage (on the 6th floor) this gem not only provided for a spectacular view (outdoor rooftop lounge) but a clean, crisp... More

You've got to go downtown every once in a while and this is a good excuse. Quality Seafood served by pro's in an elegant establishment. Try it once and you'll come again.

We had amazing seats on the patio ... the view of San Jose and the mountains was amazing. But ... service was really bad/slow. We were pretty sure the calamari was not local as it was nothing like we see in Monterey, other local restaurants ... and probably was frozen ... pretty disappointing for a seafood restaurant. I'd love this... More

I could have eaten here twice. Everyone in my party enjoyed his/her food. From the lobster bisque to the salmon and everything in between, it was tasty! One issue - it seems that restaurants here want you to ask for the check. We were there at least a half hour longer than we wanted because we had to figure that... More

Scott's is in a perfect location to visit before going to see a show at the San Jose Performance of the Arts, it's just across the street, I took my sister to dinner before the show and have always had nothing but a great experience at Scott's.
