Scott's Seafood - Oakland Ratings and Reviews
I am a seafood lover but was disappointed in our entrees. My husband had Swordfish encrusted with crab and I had the Herb crusted Halibut. Both were very bland and mine was swimming in a bland sauce. The cup of Boston Clam Chowder was very good except for the sandy grit from the clams. The food did not meet our expectations at all.
Just celebrated my mom and husband's birthday dinner at Scotts. Everything exceeded our expectations! The food, the service and the view were all spectacular. To top it off the restaurant surprised us by taking $58 off our bill just because AND gave my mom a beautiful red rose, took our pictures and gave us copies and brought out a delicious sorbet ice cream on dry ice! The entire experience was 10 stars if thats possible. I highly recommend this restaurant for any and all occassions. If you've never been to their Sunday brunch that is a MUST as well!! They also have live jazz 7 days a week.
It was Mothers Day and they had a loud jazz band playing, so you couldn't carry on a conversation. We sat there for 15 minutes before a waitress asked if we've been helped. That told me that a waiter had not been assigned to our table. We had the steak and lobster, which for $50 was a ripoff. I asked for the steak to be medium well, it came out rare. And it had absolutely no flavor. Very unprofessional and not what I'd expect from Scott's. I'm sure the "Mothers Day" excuse will be used for the large crowd, but then schedule adequate staff.
We had a reservation for 6 PM but there were about 25 people ahead of us all with reservation waiting to be seated. We waited for about 20 minutes and decided to go to another restaurant. When we left the line had not moved. We will not be visiting Scott's again anytime soon.
The food at Scotts is consistantly excellent. Mother's Day however it appears they over-reserved and under-staffed. The line to check in was out the door and the podium host was overwhelmed. We never saw our waiter - apparently he'd been tasked to build the outside pavillion for overflow. Our busboy actually showed the initiative to serve our drinks and take our order but was not trained in serving the food so our entrees came out with the salads. Management did take responsibilty and comp our evening though we would have preferred an enjoyable, stress-free Mother's Day dinner.
Mother's Day 2013
Spend $250 in food and left thinking that I could have better food at Chinese town.
That's not a good feeling after dinner.
Food did not have taste and calamari has a lot oil on it.
Had brunch before at Scott's and it was great.
Miguel was very nice, good job Miguel! Usually I don't remember people's name.
And usually I don't complain about restaurant. This is my first time.
I dined with 5 other people for mothers day. All adults. The food was excellent, our server was great... but the food took F O R E V E R
I understand that it's Mother's day and you are busy, but this was a reservation only dinner, and we scheduled ours at 4:30 to avoid the evening rush. When you know exactly how many people you will be cooking for it should be easier to make the food come out on time. I will definitely try this place again, the food was amazing. Despite the 3+ hours it took us for our dinner (without dessert) I enjoyed Scott's Seafood and would recommend it to others.
We had dinner on Mother's Day so the place was understandably busy. Even so, we were seated quickly after checking in. We were lucky to get a window table at the opposite end of the bar area so it was quiet enough for our party to chat at normal levels. The wait for our food was long enough that our waiter came to the table a few times to say our order was coming soon. The food was great once we got it though. Overall, it was a positive dining experience despite the holiday crowds.
The food was delicious and came relatively quickly considering how full the restaurant was on Mother's Day. It is a very large restaurant with a relaxing view of the water. The service was excellent with the servers constantly refilling drinks without prompting. It was a wonderful experience and I would definitely come again.
Went to Scott's in Oakland for a 1PM Mother's Day buffet brunch. The food met Scott's high standards. Since it was Mother's Day, they opened up 3 large rooms, each one with a 3-4 piece band. We had the middle room and our jazz band thought they were just having a jam party. The music was too loud; we were in a round table for 10 people, and we could not hear the people seated across the table from us. The only good point was when the band took their 30 minute break! There were bands in the other 2 rooms, but they did not play as loud as the one we were in.
I brought my mother here for mothers day as she loves their crab salad. While they were more than accomodating in serving her the salad, I was very surprised that the buffet was $59.00. The selection was limited and far from others I have been to for the same price or less.
Although the restaurant was very full, the buffet area was never too crowded and the kept the food replenished continuously. The waitstaff was very friendly - no attitude at all when we aske to move tables to get away from an annoying fan noise. The waiter continuously refilled our Mimosas and OJ. The food was good some things better than others, nothing stood out as fantastic - but it was a brunch buffet after all. It was a little on the expensive side but all in all a very nice experience.
Had guests from out of town. Didn't realize the only option would be the brunch. I had been there before and remembered ordering off a menu as being an option. Although the brunch setup looked nice. I was not happy with the selections. We asked if we could order off a menu and were told we could not, although a bar menu was provided as an option. The selections on this menu were limited and not what we were looking for. I was disappointed with the service and the food. Won't be going back anytime soon.
I spend a lot of time at Scotts but they need to increase their portion size. Its very expensive for the portions. Cheesecake factory a national chain serves equally good food with larger portions. A place like Scotts should totally out pace a place like the Cheesecake factory.
I had my retirement lunch at Scott's in San Jose in February, and received a Gift Certificate for Scott's restaurant from my boss as a gift. Nowhere did it indicate that it was only valid at the San Jose and Walnut Creek restaurants. After ordering a wonderful dinner, I was told that the Gift Certificate that I planned to use to pay for the dinner, was not valid at the Oakland location! This location is "family owned" and is not a member of the Scott's corporation.
Despite this little "surprise", I will still patronize Scott's restaurant and will recommend it if asked.
The perfect place to take your spouse to celebrate a Birthday or any special occasion. Seating with a view of the Bay. The perfect atmosphere and romantic ambiance to set the tone for the evening. The Dinner Menu was fit for a King with mouthwatering appetizers. The food was well prepared and well-seasoned. The Desert Menu was exquisite. While the professional pianist performed solo pieces to set the atmosphere. Scott's Seafood had a Moscato on its wine list to die for.
