Diner Reviews
  • "Recently celebrated a birthday at Scotts, San Jose (party of 8). We sat outside on the patio, and it was lovely (ok, the planes overhead were loud, but it was something to laugh about!). Food was excellent! Something for everyone; service attentive, but not overdone. Good value, very special evening and memories! We brought a birthday cake, they served it! Nicely done!!"

  • "Always a good lunch at Scotts, with a good by-the-glass wine selection and very fresh seafood salad. Service was prompt and the only disappointment was the host failed to note that I fulfilled my reservation, resulting in my having to explain the "no show" to OpenTable"

  • "We went to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. We made reservations for 5:30 pm and were seated right away at a window seat. The wait staff was very attentive and the bartender made my wife's Gin and Tonic to perfection. Enjoyed an appetizer and then the main course. Both of our dinners were excellent! We both enjoyed our dining experience and would definitely return"

  • "This is a neighborhood gem. Since my last visit a remodel has taken place and this is without doubt the best outdoor dining in all of downtown SJ! That being said, I still dined indoor for this visit. The dining room is eclectic, clean, and spacious. So I had to ask myself, "why so many empty tables on a Friday night? By the end of dinner I knew why. The service was good. The menu reads fabulously. But the food is where they failed. It was good...but not great. It lacked the layers of flavors i expect. The seared Ahi had no wasabi or soy, their own sauce had no kick, the seafood trio of scallop, prawn, crab was plain. The way they plated rice was like a cheap Chinese restaurant. (Upside down bowl?) Very much like hotel food."

  • "This is probably about my half-dozenth review for Scott's. We love it here. Some of the staff recognize us. I can't speak to late-night find, though it could easily be. The scenic view is of downtown San Jose, with the planes flying over to the airport. We enjoy watching them at twilight."

  • "I went with five friends for dinner and each of us loved our choices...all seafood! The crusted sea bass was excellent over mashed potatoes and a side of fresh vegetables. The key lime pie is outstanding! The server was attentive and pleasant! We were able to visit and hear each other which is hard to find in most restaurants. We had a nice view from our glass window. I haven't dined outdoors but their patio area looks spectacular with a beautiful view of the city! I highly recommend Scott's in San Jose! Can't beat it for food, service, and ambiance! Did I mention "valet parking", too? Each access and free departure! Wonderful evening. Thank you to the wonderful staff from the hosts, chefs, to the wait staff!"

  • "If you like fresh, well-prepared fish/seafood this is the place to go. The service was excellent, drinks were also delicious and the fish so tasty and fresh. We each had something different and each disg was excellent. The Sea Bass was especially amazing."

  • "The space was very, very nice. I'd recommend the appetizers. They were good and budget friendly. The main entrees were not worth the price. There was about 15 of us and maybe 3 enjoyed their dish. Four were returned."

  • "Overall the dinner was good. My spouse had crusted grilled halibut. I had the sautéed shrimp, scallops and crab. She said hers was very tasty and the sides were good. Mine was very tasty with steamed rice and vegetables. She stated her green salad was very good. I had a caesar salad which had little or no flavor. The mixed drinks were done will. The wine list is so so. Had a single glass of reisling with dinner. We shared a bread pudding for dessert and it was served with vanilla ice cream and very tasty. This was a Sunday evening and very few people in the restaurant. Very quiet."

  • "A little pricey for my frugal tastes but well worth the splurge for a special occasion. We went after a Sunday afternoon performance at the Rep, so we were there at 4:30pm. Very quiet. Even when we left at 6, it was still empty, which made the noise level very quiet. I HATE noisy places. I enjoy speaking to the people I came with, not shouting at them. It was too cold to eat outdoors but I have eaten on their terrace before and it was lovely. Both of us had seafood. I had the sautéed seafood. The crab, scallops and shrimp were cooked perfectly. Although both entrees were about $26.00, they both came with starch and vegetable. Along with the bread, it was very ample. The crème brulee is to die for."

  • "The restaurant didn't leave an impression on me. The Caesar Salad was bland, the drinks were subpar, and my entree was good but it wasn't fantastic. I didn't really remember the food to be honest. The bread was delicious and it's sad when the bread is the best part of your meal. As for service, our server only checked on us at the bare minimum times. She was basically awful and not engaged at all. For a nice restaurant, this was kind of surprising. My boyfriend had a beer and she asked him if he wanted a refill but I had a raspberry lemonade (seriously no raspberry) that was basically only ice and she didn't bother asking me if I was okay. It was blah. Very blah. I hope the other locations aren't as bad as the one in San Jose."

  • "This is not my favorite Scotts in the Bay Area but it is adequate and has the best selection of Fish items on the menu in Downtown San Jose. Convenient for parking and attending Plays, Concerts, Ballets, and Conferences. Located in Central Downtown San Jose."

  • "They offer validated parking in the building until midnight, which makes it great for before-show dinner. It is near the civic auditorium etc. The view over San Jose is a plus too. Food was delicious!"

  • "My husband took me to Scott's seafood for a birthday dinner. We were able to make reservations online, however I noticed that they take walk-ins too. We were greeted when we arrived and seated right away. Our waiter was friendly and got us some drinks right away. There was a bit of a wait for our food to be ready, but our meals were very good. I would recommend this restaurant to a friend."

  • "We enjoyed Scott's many times in the past. This was our return after a long absence. Great table, pretty sunset. Chowder was still amazing. Our entrees were so yummy, except that the green veggies were basically raw. Our waiter was very nice and our food came right out, but he forgot our 2nd drinks until the end of the meal! We made our reservation 3 hours before our show, but still didn't want to risk ordering dessert."

  • "Our waiter was inattentive, late bringing drinks, had to ask a couple of time for refills on a mini coffee cup. Brought the appetizer with the first course although we had agreed it would be in succession. When my main course came, I had no fork, promised to bring one, never did. Used my husband's salad fork instead. We like their food, have never had a waiter there like this before. The outdoor dining on the roof is really lovely. They have plenty of heaters to keep it comfortable."

  • "We had a great table outside but the service was not good. It appeared that the waiter was taking care of too many tables. After our food was delivered no one came to refill water or ask for drink order. We had to ask for napkins and silverware. When soup came there were no spoons and had to find someone to bring these. No one inquired about our meal."

  • "We dined here on a very busy Saturday night (day after Valentines Day). We had a long wait, but we knew we would. Enjoyed the bar area. Once seated in a nice location we we greeted immediately. Our server did a great job. The downside was the restaurant ran out of bread. While dining there was staff taking down tables around us. Not just taking the linens off but taking down the round tables, folding them up and rolling them away. were still plenty of diners in the restaurant. We were't overstaying our dining, didn't even have dessert. So basically food and service were very good, just big disappointment in the bread and take down department."

  • "The hosts and hostesses were very welcoming and warm. Scott, our server, was attentive and swift in service. We had scheduled our dinner at 5:30 which allowed us to watch the sunset through the west facing panoramic windows from the 6th floor. The lobster tail and red potatoes were perfectly prepared and the filet was delicious. Happy memories were made during this Valentine's Day dinner."

  • "My wife and I celebrated Valentine;s Day one day early as we keep the Sabbath from sundown Friday until sundown Saturday per the Bible. Scott's was a wonderful place to do this as all the food we had was wonderful and the service was excellent. Everything was ready for us when we arrived including the flowers I had ordered for our table. I would do this again in a second when the opportunity arises."

  • "We were on time and dined early to make a show afterwards. Seating was tight both inside and pout as might be expected on a special date night. Our food was hot, well prepared and served in a timely fashion despite the nearly full house. We were told there were 650+ reservations according to our server. This is the largest night serving they had ever had. They even had at least 50 tables set outside under the stars, fortunately no rain!"
