Food was good. I had salmon
Food was good. I had salmon and it was excellent. My wife wanted the Swordfish but they were out of stock so settled for sautéed Prawns which were a little bland. Portions were fine but pricing was a little high. Nice location with views of the City Skyline. Service was attentive and prompt. We plan to return for family Christmas dinner this year.

Nice spot to take clients
Scott's delivered a nice dinner -- good food and nice atomoshphere for a client dinner. Have taken clients to lunch and tried for dinner. Everyone happy.

We had a wonderful dinner and great service. The food looked nice on the plate and was perfectly prepared. The staff was most cordial. The view was pleasant and the location right in the heart of San Jose.

We all enjoyed our dinner.
We all enjoyed our dinner. The Scott's specialty with sauteed shrimp, scallops, and crabmeat was very good. Service was prompt, efficient, and friendly. We didn't realize that eating dinner on the new patio is an option, so it would have been nice if we had been asked if we wanted to sit outside. Next time we will know to ask. We really appreciate that Scott's is able to validate parking long enough for a theater performance on Saturday night. We will definitely return.

My first time ever at Scott's!
I am embarrassed to admit that I have lived in San Jose, CA for OVER 6 years before I ever set foot in Scott's Seafood! So glad I finally made it here. This place was worth the wait! Scott's has a great formal dining room--where we ate with wonderful views of Downtown San Jose and mountains in the background. My husband and I were unaware that they had such a hip outdoor patio dining area as well! Live jazz was happening out there.
The meal was delicious! Started with a refreshing salad, my main course was Cioppino--which was fantastic tasting--and just the right amount of seafood for one person to enjoy! My dessert was the vanilla bean creme brulee...I was able to sneak a bit of my husband's fantastic chocolate cake, also! Buono!

I really like the new look inside Scott's. They've added a nice patio dining area, unfortunately it was too hot the night we went to sit outside, but would be a great spot on a cooler night.

This was a first visit to Scott's Seafood in San Jose. I previously visited Scott's in Palo Alto. Our visit was on a Friday night. Small parties were in the main dining area and groups, who could be raucous, were seated outside. The food was excellent as was the service. Nice choice of wines. Fair and reasonably priced. Will return again.
7/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
I was happy with the quality of the food although there were a few changes to the menu not mentioned that were acceptable, but as an example, a strawberry salad should [probably have strawberries in in. The raspberries were great however.
The restaurant was slow as it was a Wednesday night, but the service was just as slow. I am always amazed by how few people are there on weekdays. Maybe because it is right downtown, I don't know. Parking is convenient and free if you validate, so that should not be a problem. Food was excellent.

excellent food, romantic place
food was cooked perfect to customer's request for 'no alcohol' cooked in dish AND low sodium content!!!
LOVED it! Seafood was cooked just perfectly, so delicous!!!

Scott's has it all
This is our go-to restaurant for celebrations. The kitchen staff knows how to prepare fish among the best of them. Side dishes come with the main dish; this is not common to all nice restaurants. There is a nice view of downtown San Jose and you can often see planes coming in to land at the San Jose airport.

Very pleasant and quiet lunch
Very pleasant and quiet lunch time atmosphere with excellent and attentive service. Although I have been here several times for dinner prior to attending local shows, this is the first time for a business meeting lunch opportunity.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love the dinning experience
We sat outside enjoying the company in the summer breeze. The food and service were great. Very relax but elegant. I would highly recommend Scott's Seafood to all of my friends.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love it every time I go there
This is a great place- service is excellent, food is very good, wine list is great.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
We, once again, enjoyed our dinner date tremendously! Had their Friday nite dinner special: Broiled Lobster. Great price! Great food! Great service!
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, served hot
The food and service at Scott's Seafood was great. I especially liiked the hot, hot food that stayed hot even after the first several bites.
My only disappointment was that my husband had a birthday...and even though I put that comment in the Open Table online reservation's comment box, told the hostess and told the waitress....there was nothing done to recognize his birthday in ANY way!
What good are the comments on the Open Table if the restaurant doesn't take action?
What good is it to mention this to the hostess and waitress, if it falls on deaf ears?
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
We come here frequently as the food is always good as is the service. Their new outdoor dining area is impressive.

Great Find in Downtown San Jose
You never know what you are in for when you book online in a place you have never been! We booked a rooftop table for 2 at 730P, but traffic back-up was awful and at 7P we were not even in San Jose. I called to cancel and they asked if I would like to book later so I did for 830. We arrived and they still gave us our rooftop table next to a fireplace so even though it was a bit chilly, it was very nice outdoors next to the fire. Food was great and we intended to go elsewhere for dessert and coffee but ended up staying at Scotts for the whole evening. Very nice and relaxing.

Been twice but, the 2nd time
Been twice but, the 2nd time was much better more of an open air feeling with a nice fireplace and outside dining available. Just bring your sweater. Food and wine fabulous. Nice selection.

Pleasant weekday business lunch
Scott's is a very good seafood restaurant in downtown San Jose. I have never had a bad meal here, and the service has always been friendly. The decor is basic -- elegant, but no frills. I recently discovered the deck, which has a lovely, modern fireplace, a "top-of-the-world" view of low-profile San Jose, and a band on Thursday nights. As for food, I have especially liked the crab cakes. Most recently, I had the scallop salad, which was delicious, although to my surprise the scallops were cold.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a nice dinner, great seafood and desserts. Nice view, quiet and. Relaxed place, close to lots of downtown stuff.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
A trip to San Jose is not complete without dinner at Scott's!
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
LOVED IT!!!! I have eaten
LOVED IT!!!! I have eaten at other Scott's before many years ago and remembered it to be a great experience but this Scott's is exceptional. The ambiance was wonderful the food exceptional and plenty of it too. My wife and I are recommending it to everyone and can't wait until our own return....

BEST OUTDOOR DINING IN SAN JOSE!
I had not been to Scotts for over 10 years...and it was Excellent! The outside dining is the best kept secret in the Silicon Valley - food was excellent - going back very soon!
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Get to Scott's
Scott's remodel makes the place pop. Check out the outdoor patio!
9/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
solidly good food
I really like this restaurant. I go here for lunch often if I just want a quiet spot that has consistently good food.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place to take customers
The view of San Jose boarded by mountains on the East and West offers a nice atmosphere for out-of-town, or foreign customers.
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
We decided at the last minute to walk over from our hotel to have dinner at Scott's and glad we did. While the view wasn't the most magnificent one ever, it was nice on the rooftop of the building. We had pleasant evening outdoor dining weather. The server was very good, efficient and had a nice sense of humor.
My only complaint was that the smell right outside and into the lobby of the building is not something one wants to endure right before dinner. Not sure if it was a city matter or the building, but Scott's would do well to take ownership of the problem and attempt to eliminate it.

Outstanding outdoor dining !
This is a great place with ambiance the roof top dining outdoor specially spectacular after dark when one can see the panoramic view of the downtown! It was overall a great experience! The Almond Crusted Seabass was just so delectable! This is slightly fancy fine dining would love to revisit! Everything was perfect and the server did a stellar job! This is a place where one should consider dining at a slow pace to absorb the flow. The hurricane candle lit dinner just creates the coziness while making it exclusive! My husband ate the Salmon was very good too. Perfect for a quiet dinner not sure if it can be as breathtaking during lunch, but outdoor and indoor dining available so one can pick and choose what one wants! Thanks to Open Table !
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was a good time with Fiance and dad. The server was very attentive and the food was good.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
All Scott's locations serve consistently well prepared sea food. Waiters are always attentive and professional. Never had a bad dish or a complaint at any of Scott's locations and I have eaten at all many times. Not the cheapest but their quality warrants the extra cost.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice quiet anniversary
It was our 17th anniversary. I made note of that in my reservation, and they read it and made it a very nice, quiet, experience. All our severs were courteous, attentive without hovering, and everyone knew it was our anniversary. I had asked for a window seat, which we got, and it was very nice.
The food was prompt, the drinks were very good (they even have real 7Up, not Sprite for a mixer - very rare these days) and the appetizer was delicious.
The bill was quite reasonable, the service impeccable, and overall, it was a joy to eat there. So much nicer than the noisy places around downtown.

Food was good. The service
Food was good. The service is great. We had a great server who was very attentive but not overbearing and made our dinner very enjoyable.

Great dining experience
Our server Cynthia was excellent. Service was timely and friendly. The food was great. The calamari was the best we've had in some time. The restaurant was very nice and very ambient. We had a terrific experience at Scott's.

Good food, good service, clean
Good food, good service, clean and ample parking. Very nice presentation of salad.

Love the restaurant and location
Love the restaurant and location near theater but always seem to have a parking problem.
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
The most savory specialty
The most savory specialty dish of shrimp, crab and scallops I've ever tasted! Served over a bed of rice with vegetables. I'll repeat this one again!
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Part of the Plan
We have attended musical theater in San Jose for years and Scott's has always been a great part of the evening's program. It's close to the theater; the food is very good; it is always comfortable and the service is great. Not only do they provide friendly, customer-first table service, but they are very accustomed to making sure you make it to the show on time. They always ask if we're going to the theater and then they plan out the timing to perfection. Whether you've left time for a relaxing repast, or you cut it awfully close for comfort, they'll make sure you get to the theater before the curtain goes up. Over the last several years Sn Jose has added some great dining options downtown, but Scott's will always be on the list for us.

A Great Revisit to an Old Favorite
We sat outside-beautiful new patio and looong contemporary fireplace. Looking out over downtown. Great happy hour food--Scampi and Sliders and yummy beet salad. Good wine, good food and great ambience!
10/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great for business lunch
Scott's is my "go to" lunch place for business in downtown SJ. The service is great, the food great, and who doesn't love a crab louie, which they will make for you -- ask for the seafood salad with crab only!
Its alway consistent and you can count on good food and service. And, the parking is easy - with validation.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
I was with my girlfriend and
I was with my girlfriend and we were celebrating her birthday with dinner and a show afterwards. Dinner was perfect and the service was great. We both had the clam chowder which we ordered right away before even studying the menu. I wish I checked first because I saw a lobster bisque that I wish I ordered (I always order clam chowder). She had a shrimp dish with vegetables and rice, I think. I had the jambalaya that came in a cast iron skillet. I thought it looked a little small but that skillet could hold a lot of food. It was delicious and I was stuffed. For dessert she got a complimentary cup of something really good! Overall it was a great experience.

Excellent Pre-Theatre Experience
I went there on 11/2/13. There must have been something going on in downtown San Jose, because I tried two other restaurants before and they were booked. I was nervous about making reservations on-line as I thought the restaurant might not honor it. To my surprise, as soon as I got in, they had my reservations and I was immediately escorted to a lovely table for the two of us. We ordered cocktails, appetizers and had a wonderful dinner. We noticed the restaurant was packed but not loud. It was so nice I could talk to my friend and hear each other . The food was good too, but I'd recommend the multiple waiters need more training on the dishes there. Around show-time a rush of us left! Great choice for theater downtown!

Our 35th Anniversary
We were seated in a area far enough away from a couple large groups
In order to give us some privacy. The young lady the waited on us
Took the time to answer our questions about the menu. The French Onion
Soup is one of the best I have ever tasted. I had the Sea Bass and my wife
Selected the Halibut. We shared a serving of the bacon and Brussels sprouts.
Each of our selections were prepared to perfections. We were both very satisfied
With your restaurant and we will be back.
11/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fresh, well-prepared seafood, adequate wine list. The cold sampler was an outstanding appetizer. Noise level was energetic only because there was a tasteful and talented jazz trio playing (weeknight). Will return.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was our first time to Scott's. The food was very good, the waiter attentive and they have a good, reasonably priced wine list. I would definitely go back!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
I was taking a friend to lunch
I was taking a friend to lunch and I wanted everything to be just right. Scott's exceeded my expectations.
We had a long unhurried lunch.
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
Check this out!!
This place has it all,Literally. If you want to eat at a "nice" restaurant, then look no further.Scott's seafood has an excellent selection of not only seafood, but pastas and steaks as well. They carry a great selection of wine, with an EXCELLENT PATIO AREA!!. To me, these features are what I look for in what I call a 5 star restaurant !
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Scott's very good, as usual
We had a good dinner, the waiter was attentive at the right level--there when we needed something, but not hovering. it's always a pleasant evening there.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
It is worth going once.
I like the location of the restaurant. It is at the top of the buiilding. I like the street view, and also the Christmas decoration.

A Long Time Favorite
Scott's has been a favorite restaurant of my family"s for many years. It is where we would go for special occasions or just because we wanted to have a good seafood dinner. It all seemed very much the same. The service was great, . I was a little disappointed in my dinner, the classic dish with prawns, scallops & crab in a garlic sauce. The scallops were very bitter & a touch underdone. My companions dinner of trout was excellent. We also shared an heirloom tomato salad which was good but I think quite overpriced for what it was. We finished dinner with our always favorite Raspberry Jack which was as good as I remember it always being. While I was not as satisfied with my meal as I had expected to be I'm sure we will go back again.
12/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Nice spot to enjoy a warm winter meal while enjoying the holiday lights of San Jose's Christmas in the Park. The top of the ferris wheel turns just outside the restaurant windows and all tables have views.
My grilled salmon was moist and tasty but the accompanying risotto was outstanding----a mixture of rice, corn, and "sunchoke" Jerusalem Artichoke cooked perfectly al dente.
The accompanying brussels sprouts were also perfectly cooked al dente but a bit too smokey flavored for my taste.
