Our cocktails, salads, and main courses were delicious. The waiters and busmen were perfectly courteous to us and coordinated with each other. Was in Palo Alto on business with the medical center at Stanford and will probably go back in the coming months as I will be going up regularly.

Excellent food. And service
Requested and got a nice quiet table. Waiter extremely helpful and good on tasting wine sold by glass and with menu selections. Also returned undercooked salmon to kitchen and it returned looking attractive, probably on a new plate - and delicious.

a favorite place
Scott's is one of our favorite restaurants in Palo Alto. The food is fresh, lovely, and delicious. The wait staff is about the best we've seen - courteous, helpful, and friendly. We never have to wait long to get fed, nor do we feel rushed.

I hosted a group of foreign visitors from Asia and the menu was quite manageable for them and they thought the food was quite good. They compared it to dining in France.

Even though half of our table (5 people) were 20 minutes late, there was no pressure from the waitstaff or management, which was very appreciative.

Less satisfied than usual
We've eaten at Scott's for many years, but we usually eat outside and/or arrive early. This time we ate inside at 7:30 on a Thursday night. There was a band and the noise level was pretty high with patrons trying to talk over it. We were unlucky enough to be seated near a guy who talked a lot and really loudly. I came home from dinner with a sore throat from trying to talk to the others in my party. I'd prefer no band and, of course, no other really loud customers.
I did like the food and service, as usual.

Fresh ingredients, nice selection of seafood and steaks on the menu. Friendly waitstaff. Comfy seats, pleasant lighting, quiet enough for conversation. Some of the dishes we ordered could have had a bit more flavor, but otherwise, the food was fresh and nicely presented.

the five of us each had a different dish and everyone raved. Excellent service, quiet table, near Stanford campus. Waiter reminded us of time as we had told him we had tickets for a concert.

Four of us from work decided to treat ourselves to a special lunch. Two of us has never been to Scotts, and two of us had been (but about 20 years ago in SF). Everyone was pleased with the food and service. We'll be back!

Consistently a good place to go!
For before-theatre dining, we all like to go to Scott's. It's close to Lucie Stern Theatre and other activities in the area. Friends who join us have no trouble finding this central location and always find something on the menu that appeals. Something for everyone...not just seafood. And for me, I'm loving the rainbow trout these days.

Had a cup of the French onion soup and spinach salad along with an Arnold Palmer (iced tea with lemonade). Food was delicious and the service was attentive but not intrusive. Be sure to use the free valet parking that is available in this shopping center. It's in the back on the north side of the shopping center. Available from 11 to 3.

The quality and presentation of the food is always terrific. We especially enjoy the fresh seafood....Petrale sole and salmon, both delicious and served with steamed veggies. This is also one of the few places around town where the noise level is NOT booming and you can actually talk to one another while having dinner. The prices are very fair. We like the ambiance with the exposed whitened wooden beams.

I came here for lunch with some of my coulleges and a customer. We got great food and really good service.

good sea food
good quality seafood, but not as wide a menu as some. helpful wait staff. no other upper mid-range fish restaurants in the area and we weren't in the mood for either a chain or one of the trendy bistros along university avenue. They are fun, but we wanted a quiet low key conventional sea food dinner.
would definitely return

solid with wide appeal
this restaurant is a solid choice for a wide range of fresh food, good service, nice wine list and a comfortable ambience.
I had the linguini with clams while my guests had the petrale sole and the seafood salad. we all had wine and then shared a dessert. i also heard there's a great deal for early bird diners too, but this was especially nice for us to gather, have good conversation and attentive service. Parking was available and easy to find. the entire package made for a very pleasant dining experience!

I had the lunch special and it was delish. It was a sandwich (toasted sourdough, grilled shrimp with bacon and avacado). The shrimp was perfectly grilled, bacon was nicely done (nongrissy) and those two items blended so well with thick slices of avacado. As I write this review, I'm hungry for that same sandwich. Scotts, here I come!

wonderful lobster dinner
My husband and I picked Scott's Seafood to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary. We thought a delicious lobster dinner was fitting for the special occasion.

Scott's never disappoints
If you are unsure trying a new restaurant, let me reassure you that Scott's Seafood, whether the Palo Alto or the new Mountain View location, is always of the highest caliber in reliability for service and cuisine. I and my dates have always enjoyed Scott's!

Good food and service
We went here for my husband's birthday celebration. Adults had seafood which was good. Husband had the sea bass which he thought was just okay. Kids meals were okay - chicken fingers and hamburger. Wish a choice was spaghetti with meatballs. We diverted our son from getting spaghetti with just sauce because we thought it lacked protein. Fried calamari was very tender and tasty. Appreciated the birthday treat for my husband with the candle. Waiter was very attentive and friendly.

Had the lobster special and it was perfect. My husband's seafood pasta needed a bit of salt, but was also very good. The waiter accommodated my request for no potatoes and switched it to the available veggie of my choice.
Overall, a very nice experience.

I met several friends at the restaurant for dinner. Our service was excellent as was the food. We arrived around 5:30 and the restaurant was very quiet. However, by the time we left at 7:30 the dining area was full and the noise level was moderate. We had a very nice time and would definitely go there again.

Good meal for happy hour period
We had a meeting to go to in the early evening and didn't want to starve. So we had a reasonably light dinner and shared a bowl of ice cream. Very good service--friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful wait staff without hovering. Seated promptly. Meal was great for what we wanted (not too heavy, good fresh salad; my husband had scallops and they were tasty). Considering our time restrictions and the fact that we didn't want to have a heavy meal, this was a great choice. Because we were there early, the price was reasonable.

Post-football game dinner
We met friends at Scott's after a Stanford football game. You could actually walk there from the stadium. We arrived early and had a drink at the bar watching other games while we waited. The coconut shrimp we ordered at the bar were outstanding. Everyone enjoyed their dinners - petrale sole, jambalaya and the surf and turf special. The chocolate caramel sundae was a fantastic finish.

Hostess got us seated right away. Server and waitstaff were quick and efficient.
Food was great, but that was our expectation (perScott's usual).
A solid performer.

Scott's has been around for many years. We haven't eaten there in years. The new location is convinient and the food was excellent. Overall much better than our last visit.

Hungry to return
Three of us decided on Scott's because of its proximity to our next destination. We were not hungry enough to each order a dinner entree so we ordered soup or salad and shared a seafood platter listed in the appetizer list. Not only was the food enough to fill us, but we thoroughly enjoyed the flavors of the crab cakes, wrapped prawns and calamari. The service staff were welcoming, attentive and gracious. We will back back for a full meal soon.

Food was great, setting was super comfortable and plush, server had the polite and articulate tableside manner you expect when surrounded by rich Stanford parents eating in palo alto. The entrees were very well thought out by some master chef that obviously knows what they are doing. Download their menu and read it through and you'll see what I mean.
