    Staff especially Carlos is been very attentive, very accommodating. I Appreciate when I told the manager that I don’t have a cake and she help me get a birthday cake for my daughter next door bakery instead of offering what’s in the desert menu. Overall Experience is awesome 👏

    The food was extremely small portioned and very mediocre my medium rare steak was overcooked and teeny tiny. My husband’s salmon was over cooked and had no flavor. The drinks were overly sweet. The desserts were unremarkable. The only thing that was a hit was the garlic bread with cioppino sauce but I feel like I could have made something similar if I had bought Texas toast in the freezer section of any grocery store. The server was kinda rude and seemed to be rushing us (he kept checking our check to see if we had paid yet and looked visibly irritated when we hadn’t added our cards yet, we weren’t taking a long times at all). Overall it was an extremely disappointing experience at a very high price. We would not recommend this place at all.

    They were out of several items (the menus on opentable and their website are out of date as well) Service (particularly for cocktails) was incredibly slow. Ordered cocktails when we first sat down, they arrived during the second course. A second cocktail didn’t arrive until we had finished our entrees.

    The atmosphere here was fine dining by definition.. if I can paraphrase. The service was timely and very courteous. The food was filling and flavorful. I recommend the delicious fried calamari , garlic bread, with the filet mignon.

    The food and the service were great. My only complaint it that it was a bit expensive, however this is because it was a special Valentine's Day Prix Fixe menu -- the prices are normally much lower.

    Scott's Seafood never disappoints when it comes to the food. The waiter was very nice and professional. We sat in the patio, so obviously subject to noise level of people walking by, but the new setup of the patio provides sufficient separation from the outside which helps the atmosphere.

    We were a bit late for our reservation but they let us dine anyway, which we appreciated. We were quick to order so maybe that’s why they forgot our crab cakes. I ordered the ahi tuna salad, it was delicious, fresh, and very filling. My husband ordered the burger, the bacon was a little burnt and they didn’t take out the onions, as requested but it was still delicious and it was huge! Overall, despite a few mishaps, the food was absolutely delicious and the staff was extremely pleasant and friendly.

    We dined last night to celebrate a friend’s birthday, and both couples found the food to be exquisitely prepared. The fried calamari was both tender and not oily; the best that our friends had eaten. Two of us made substitutions in our entree side dishes which our server handled with aplomb. Their outside seating is kept inviting by then use of efficient gas heaters, and the sole, sea bass, halibut, and paella were perfectly crafted and very much enjoyed. Scott’s is a gem in downtown San Jose, and if one desires well prepared fresh seafood, this is the place.

    The new location is very different from the original Scott’s. It’s not as upscale and the food taste very different. The seafood was over cooked and not cooked properly. The service was good and the patio was average. I think it would have been better if I had been to the old location. It’s definitely a different experience. What I shame… I miss the old Scotts chef and location. Bummer

    Excellent food. Maybe short staffed (had to ask for water, felt a little rushed.) The inside is not warm feeling due to cement floors, high ceiling with exposed beams, bright lights. We sat at a table right by the bar which made it loud and didn’t feel like fine dining. People were eating outside with heating lamps and I would eat outside in the spring time.

    Great food, great service that was friendly and attentive. Presentation of everything from the drinks to the food was terrific. The background noise and music or just loud enough to allow for conversation at our table. Nice atmosphere. A little pricey but not too bad for the area. Definitely coming back.

    Went for NYE… Through their “Experience” listing, we reserved a High Top table inside. However when we arrived there were no High Top tables in the place, so we ended up being seated at a too tiny for our service (their pre-fixe 4-course dinner) table outside. They had a DJ spinning out there, whose music selection was pretty spot on, so that was a nice touch. The food was good and the proteins were prepared well, but the portion of sea bass was smaller than a deck of cards and the bok Choy was gritty, like it hadn’t been washed thoroughly. The portion of filet was just right, but the crab on top was underwhelming. The taste and texture was like that of minced crab salad. The mashed potatoes we great. We came in from out of town to dine with them and so probably wouldn’t go out of our way to seek them out again.

    Went there for NYE on a fixed price menu. Service was detached and inattentive, clearly didn’t want to be there. Food was bland and low-quality with the exception of the deserts. The lobster bisque for some reason was spicy which was not indicated on the menu. We ordered red wine to go with the filet mignon, it tasted like vinegar.

    The food was as good as always, but the service was a little disjointed. We kept getting our first course and second course served to the wrong table. Also, it wasn't as much fun at the new location on First St. as it was on Park Ave. I missed the music and the ambiance of the 6th floor of the parking garage picture windows overlooking SJ.

    Waiter brought me the wrong appetizer and I ate mine after my wife had hers. The service was extremely slow. The New Year's Eve meal was posted as $90 on the Opentable website. The meal was $135 each at the restaurant. Our out the door bill was around $380. In my opinion it should have been around $150. The food was good; but not #380 good.

    I have not been to this restaurant in over two years. The food was always delicious and affordable. This time the shrimp and crab salad had no flavor the crab tasted as if it had been frozen then thawed then frozen and thawed again. Most of the service was average. This restaurant is pricey! I don't mind paying a high price for food but I expect the food to be above average for the prices they charge. I will not be a patron of this restaurant again. Sharon Rodrigiez
