Diner Reviews
  • "I was pleasantly surprised at the rooftop dining ambiance. I wanted a romantic, elegant night out with my girlfriend. We don't get many chances and I like to make it count. This restaurant made it happen - soft jazz music, great scene, good food. Plus right by the City National Civic which is where we were going for our event. She'll love you. Go for it."

  • "Dining at Scott's is always a pleasure. Food is well prepared and the portions leave you full. The view at the downtown location is sti one of the best in San Jose. For us it was so convenient to walk to the CPA theatre after for a show."

  • "After waiting 45 minutes for our meals, I asked our waiter to check on our food. He came back and told us that they were out of chicken. The two people at our table who had ordered chicken had to re-order. This left us in a position to have to wolf down our food to make it to the theater in time. We will try a different restaurant next theater night."

  • "We hadn't eaten at a Scott's Seafood for years - the fish is still excellent. My husband had swordfish and I had salmon on arugula - both perfectly done and nicely presented; also lovely desserts. The San Jose restaurant is on the top floor of a an office building and there is a deck (too cold that night for us) and a views in the dining room, but the general ambiance is that of an airport lounge, devoid of any personality. Our server was very nice, attentive and helpful. My husband was overjoyed when, after ordering a Booker's bourbon post-dinner, he was brought a martini glass filled to the brim - it was an odd glass and a very large serving, but he didn't complain and happily savored it all."

  • "Stumbled upon Scott's while searching restaurants near my hotel so didn't expect too much. I was greatly surprised. The outdoor patio is beautiful (music is a bit too loud) with a beautiful view of the sunset and surrounding mountains on a perfect summer evening. Food was fresh, well prepared and very reasonably priced for its quality and quantity. Dessert was the only disappointment so I would stick with food. I've never found too many good choices right in San Jose, but glad to know there's a great option for my next visit!"

  • "You can see the hills on both sides of the valley from Scott's and the parking is a breeze since they're at the top of a parking garage. A pleasant place for lunch with lots of delicious seafood salads and their trademark delicius clam chowder - good wine list too."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "Jimmy our server was very kind and considerate of my gluten allergy and very prompt. The view was gorgeous and the wine list had a nice selection. There was a chatty Cathy sitting near our table but thankfully her life story she told to her dinner mates (during their entire meal) was interesting so it added humor to the conversations with my fiance. Overall a wonderful birthday celebration"

  • "We tried out Scott's during Dine Downtown San Jose week, and tried out the whole menu. Our favorite entree out of the rainbow trout, chicken breast, sustainable salmon, and the clam linguini was definitely the salmon followed by the linguini. Out of the two appetizers (clam chowder and butter salad), the chowder stood out more as the salad was nothing too remarkable. However, out of the two desserts (bread pudding and molten chocolate cake), the bread pudding was by far the best thing of the nut. I'm not too much of a fan of dark chocolate, so the molten chocolate cake threw me off a bit. Service was great, but they seemed pretty hasty to take our dishes away. Had to stop them a few times from taking food that wasn't done!"

  • "half dozen fresh oysters - very good, fresh and tasty - would order again boston clam chowder - very good, bacon touch was very nice - would order again butter lettuce salad - a little heavy on the dressing for my taste but overall it was nicely dressed and bit on the sweeter side potato crusted halibut - the bell pepper sauce made the dish linguini and clams - overcooked pasta, undercooked clams - I love vongole and this dish made me sad bread pudding - unevenly cooked and hard - naglee garage bread pudding is better My overall impression is: decent restaurant but pricey, come for the ambiance or patio seating, old-school classy feel."

  • "I don't often dine out, restaurant week seemed perfect opportunity to experiment. Everyone from the hostess to our waiter was so friendly. My grand nephew is 12 years old was with my sister and me. The food was great, my martini was excellent. My sister enjoyed the soft drink Tiger Woods. Our desserts were excellent. Our main course of the meal presented well, was satisfying and tasty, we ordered from the restaurant week menu. We enjoyed our evening."

  • "The inside of Scott's is beautiful, the roof patio is a nice getaway. But my blackened red snapper was way too salty. If I go again, I'll try the Jambalaya which was served in an iron skillet and looked delicious. I like Scott's desserts, the bread pudding being absolutely sublime."

  • "We hadn't been in a while to Scott's and forgot how really good the food is. We've been before and were impressed, but now as I've been more places, I've come to recognize really good food. Scott's is one of the really great ones. There were some many things on the menu I wanted to try, but settled on the Sauteed scallop dish. Just really good, and the portions were just right. The dish was well presented and finished nicely. For dessert, I had the Creme Brulee and it was just great. The service was great as well. We didn't need a lot of help, but could see our waiter was willing to suggest items if I wasn't sure. The cost was reasonable, and as I say, I'm willing to pay more for good food and great service. We managed to get both."

Happy to see it hasn't lost it's edge, even after all these years. My husband - a native San Franciscan - was VERY impressed!"

  • "Went to Scott's with a group from work that was an interesting mix of vegetarians, pescetarians and carnivores. There was something on the menu for everybody and even a meatless entree or two for those vegetarians that get dragged to a seafood or steakhouse with a large group. The oyster selections were a combination of East (ME & CT) & West (WA) coasts - all very good. All that was ordered by the group was spoken highly of with the exception of the brussel sprout side-dish which showed-up up cold, but all things considered it was pretty minor. The rooftop seating is great except for the occasional plane from SJC that goes roaring overhead. The validated parking is nice too. I'm confident we'll be retuning."

  • "Scott's came up under my search for restaurant/lounge with a jazz band and was outdoor seating. When we showed up the outdoor area was reserved for a private party. So we sat indoors in front of the band. Which was fine. My boyfriend enjoyed the band and related to the music since he too is a musician in his off hours. We ordered the seared ahi for our main coarse. Unfortunately is was cold. Very cold. My guess being they pulled it out of the icebox - seared the edges and flopped it on the plate. I told the waiter - he took them back and brought the same meat cooked through and shriveled?? Ask for Manager who fixed it & Paid for entrees BUT 1 drink, 2 glasses wine, 2 cups soup, and 1 shared desert plus tip cost me $150!! "

  • "Booked a table on Mother's day. My wife and my mother were both presented with a rose upon our arrival. We were seated almost immediately. The wait staff was friendly and welcoming. The menu looked to have something to suit almost any taste. We all ordered something different, and each of us was delighted with our meals. The seafood in my Cioppino was all cooked perfectly and my wife's salmon was delicious. We ordered a pair of deserts and both were wonderful. I also appreciate them validating parking in the garage.

We sat for an hour and a half and the staff never let on if we were overstaying our welcome! Kid friendly and reasonably priced. I would recommend Scott's for brunch, lunch, dinner or an after dinner drink."

  • "We took mom for dinner. She was pleased and that doesn't happen too often. I hadn't been there in many years and enjoyed it a lot. The music was live, jazzy and not loud. The food was tasty and not fussy. The bartender made drinks to our specks. I would love to go again."

  • "I have found this Scott's to be consistently good. Their salads are fresh and crisp and nicely presented. The hard- boiled egg on mine was perfect- Julia Child would be impressed. I always have fish which has never been over or under done. Our waitress was eager to please and the service was good despite the fact it was Mother's Day weekend, Prom Night for some, the ballet, etc., and the place was packed including a special event on the patio. And even filled with customers it was still easy to have a conversation. The live music was pleasant but not interfering."
