Great ambiance overall but they could have a wider variety of food selection. The ajus for the prime rib was cold and they don’t offer regular eggs without salmon. Great service!

Took my dad here for his birthday - he loves seafood and was not disappointed! He had the best time and we all enjoyed our meal. Amazing views as well - being right on the water, how could you go wrong? The best part was our server, Katherine - she was very personable on top of doing her job well. She made it even more enjoyable! We heard amazing things about the Sunday brunch - we will be back.

Delicious! We came to Scott's Seafood for my dad's birthday celebration after he had hinted wanting to eat here. Everything was so fresh and delicious with amazing and attentive service. When making the booking I let the restaurant know we were celebrating a birthday, and my dad is always embarrassed when it's brought up at restaurants. But Scott's was very classy in handling the celebration. They surprised my dad with a delicious sorbet that was beautifully plated + a souvenir picture of himself with his sorbet + a group photo that they printed and dated for us before we left. Overall, it was a wonderful evening spent with family, great food, service, and ambiance.

Scott's has been a Bay Area favorite and go to for years. The food is reliably predictable. A little pricey but, okay. The Jack London Sq property is convenient if you plan to see a show at Yoshi's and the food is much better.

I took my date here for her birthday (our first date), and was so happy with everything! I couldn't have asked for a better experience. The food was fantastic, the service was quick, the wait staff were so pleasant and attentive, etc etc. They even helped me surprise my date with Sherbet on dry ice and a rose. That by itself was enough to make the evening perfect for my date! I love Scott's Seafood, and will definitely be coming back!

Thank you so much!
