Made same day reservations for lunch on a Saturday to celebrate a birthday. When we walked in, the person who was later our waiter greeted us and couldn’t find our reservation. He then asked if I was sure that I made a reservation for that location since they usually close for the day at my reservation time (they were still taking walk ins also). A woman came out and sat us at a table and they must’ve found my reservation at some point because I received a confirmation email from OpenTable. Food was amazing, as always and it was very quiet during lunch on a weekend.
Service was horrible. Food was meh. Nothing like Luke warm lobster bisque. My husbands steak was pretty good. But I don’t think I’d go back there again!
They’re BACK!! and as good as ever. Great menu and great food. Service was right on and the drinks unbelievable.
We had a wonderful dinner at Scott's we started with a glass of wine and Shrimp cocktail Vera Cruz style. It was so good the sauce was great and there were plenty of shrimp and it came with tortilla chips that went great with the shrimp and the sauce. We had freshly baked bread and ordered the Clam Chowder and the House Salad. The chowder is so good it is the best ever and the salad was huge and so good. We had the Alaskan Halibut that came with lot's of wonderful vegetables and a spinach cream sauce it was so good that we ate the entire entree. Our server was great and told us about the shrimp and brought us more wine during our dinner. Unfortunately we were to full for dessert but next time we will because we will be back!
Scott’s Seafood, a fixture in SJ for decades, has moved to a new location about five minutes away. It’s no off First St near Santa Clara. The place is not as elegant inside and it doesn’t have the marvelous view overlooking the city, but the food is excellent! Each dish was exceptional. The calamari is always great at Scott’s. But the ahi saline was exceptional, and I think that’s a new dish. We both had steaks and they were tasty, high quality meat, and cooked perfectly. The side dish of mushrooms was also great. Yes, Scott’s has moved, but it’s still and excellent restaurant.
It was my birthday and I love that I made the choice to go here.
A friend of mine recommended this place and I’m so happy I went.
I love seafood so this was a great place for that.
Not too pricey, ambience is pretty and luxurious.
Loved the service and the jazz music in the background.
I must mention that the spicing of the food is 100! Amazing amazing.
Will be going back again.
Came for lunch on our anniversary. Amazing food and very nice staff! Clean and modern look.
This was our first visit since Scotts moved to this location more than a year ago. We ate out on the patio outside. The food is still delicious. And the service was incredible. Our server Jesus was attentive and made our visit great.
Went here to eat seafood. Overall great experience. Nice staff.
First time visit to this location. We were very pleased with the service and quality of food.
The staff was very organized and friendly. Service was excellent and food was cooked perfectly with good presentation. One of my favorite restaurants.
We enjoyed dinner at Scott's - the soups were definitely the highlight of the meal, though the entrees were tasty too. Nice selection of wine, and we had a nice view (though we understand that the location of the restaurant is changing). The service was really great, and altogether, it made for a very nice date night.
It was my daughter’s birthday week. Last minute reservation and first time there. The place was really nice and quiet. The food was great and really large portions.
Pre speaker series dinner. Three ladies. We like to share and the hot appetizer platter was perfect. We also shared soup and dinner salad. Our waiter, Elias, was outstanding. Maybe one of the best I’ve encountered.
A very lovely meal. The sourdough bread is the best I’ve ever had.
Scott's is a dependable place to go when you want a nice meal with no drama.
New Year’s Eve dinner.
Food and service at Scotts is outstanding but so is the price. Very spendy but worth it for a special occasion
Meal pace was very slow. Restaurant dated. Wait staff not attentive. Food was average.
The Chilean sea bass was exquisite. In fact, we have never been disappointed with any meal at Scott’s. We will miss Scott’s until they reopen.
We have loved going to Scott’s for many years. Hope that they can succeed in their new location.
The food was excellent. I have one complaint. When the waiter greeted us at the table, I asked him how he was. He immediately said he wished he was at home. I was stunned. His service was brusque and clearly he was maxed out for the evening. It was my husband's 65th birthday. The front desk acknowledged this but the waiter never brought out a birthday dessert. Understandably it is a very busy night for service staff. I just would have expected a response that would have created a dialogue for the evening rather than I will wait on you as I am expected to.
Great place for great seafood in SJ. Their specials are very special.
Love the seafood at Scott’s! So sad you’re moving but will continue to dine at Scott’s!
always great service and food, expect the same in the new location.
Went to Scott's after a theatre matinee at the CPA. Had the sea bass special which was excellent.
It’s always great. We love Scott’s.
Everything was well pressed including special requests. They were very busy yet our waiter did a nice job of making sure all was fine at our table.
Food was yummy... great selection of seafood to choose from however, service was a little slow...
Great service and a fantastic meal. Interested to know the story of the space that the restaurant is in. The space is little tired, but the food and experience couldn’t have been better.
Always enjoy Scott's, the food is always good but the restaurant is looking a bit tired, hopefully it will be updated soon. But the food is always very good!
Portion size met expectations. Food was delicious.
We were together as a family for a concert. We enjoyed Scott’s Food and drinks.
Very nice place. A bit expensive for lunch.
Everything was good, but the clam chowder was especially delicious. I really didn't expect it.
The food was superb! Probably the best seafood place I have been to (and I've been to many!). Refined, well seasoned, proper size. Bread was delicious, fish was great, rice was yummy! Oh my. I'm coming back. Delicious!
Wonderful place to dine!
Great food, good service, reasonably quiet. If you want to go here, you should do it quickly as it is closing on 12/31.
Our meals were very disappointing. Although we had a nice table with a beautiful view, this place has really gone down hill. They forgot to dress the salads, one of our fish dishes was not fresh at all, and the chocolate lava cake seemed lacking in flavor. We did have a shrimp appetizer wrapped in wontons that was delicious...
