Business Meeting Dinner

Party of 3 for a business meeting. We were seated next to the window. Slight smell of gas was the only negative. We started with a dozen oysters. Followed by a cup of Lobster Bisque, it was ok. One of our business associates didn't eat his. Dinner followed, one associate had pork chop... read more

The restaurant is great and you can get a full on dinner but we enjoy hitting the bar get the chowder bowl, a few glasses of pinot and some french bread and enjoy just hanging out. For two it will cost $70

Scott's has long been an Oakland fixture, not just because of it's location on the water. The food and service continue at a high level, which brings the locals back. Families come to celebrate and will return to celebrate another occasion, or to enjoy a good meal in happy surroundings. The staff is friendly but professional and is eager to... More

This is a first class venue for dining, with a lovely view of the Oakland estuary and the pleasure craft that go by. The service is excellent and the food is very good. The only downside in my view is that its alacarte for the most part, making it quite expensive. Its great for special occasions like anniversaries and birthdays... More

If a wonderful view is what you want, this is a great place. Their wine list is outstanding, so sipping it while watching the sunset over Alameda Island is a lovely evening. The food is good seafood, but fabulous gourmet it is not. I give the setting and wine a 5, but the food a 3, which averages to 4.

The food is awesome and the view is very nice. Though it is is bit upscale, neat casual is appropriate (though please don't wear shorts and flip flops). The only negative is the wait staff. There are a couple of very attentive servers, but the majority of them seem rushed and stressed to the point of being surly. I get... More

This is a lovely place to eat and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of Oakland. The restaurant sits right on the bay between Oakland and Alameda so you enjoy the view of shipping vessels, as well as personal vessels, traversing the waterway) along with some shore birds. The prices are medium to high but the experience is well worth the cost.... More

We had reservations for 2:00 PM on Valentine's Day, and really enjoyed the sea food and view of Oakland Bay. The food was great, noise at an acceptable level for great conversation, and the view was spectacular.

This place has terrific food but you won't get it quickly or with a smile. The guy with the bread practically threw it at us and walked off as if we were annoying him with our presence. The waitress was also less than interested. When our food did finally come it was very good. Crab salad was great. I loved... More

The service is great it is a little pricey but the food taste wonderful. We had salmon which was delicious the clam chowder is amazing the Porkchop was hugebut a little dry. They're famous for their seafood so I suggest sticking with the seafood and you won't be disappointed. Make sure to make a reservation this is a busy place
