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

I am not against spending a lot of money on a meal. But if I'm going to spend a lot of money I want the food to be exceptional. At Scott's, food is pretty good, but I think you're actually paying for the view. It is a nice place. So if you're in Jack Lindon Sq. and square and would... More

Scott's was highly recommended, our entrees were $35 each (plus $10 for a Canadian Club and soda) but we were completely ignored by our rushed and harried waiter. We sat 15 minutes before he even came by our table; he hurriedly took our order and then dashed off to the large party next to us. When the soup was finished,... More

My son told us about this place so we were in the area and came and enjoyed the Sunday Jazz brunch. The food is expensive but well worth the price. The view of the bay from the table and the outstanding variety and quality of food made this a memorable occasion for my wife and I. We were glad that... More

Great atmosphere, at the bar, with jazzy piano and a sultry singer to accompany small bites and $5 glasses of house wine. Happy hour M-F, validated parking (or valet if you must). A perfect spot to watch the sunset on the Oakland estuary.

My wife and I have made it a point to have Sunday brunch whenever we're here, and now we've finally got around to making it for dinner. We were not disappointed. Southern Crab Cakes, Herb Crusted Halibut, Parmesan Bacon Salmon, a bottle of Chandon Rose, and a piano player in the background. Yep, it cost $141 plus tax, but it... More

Meh. Gorgeous place. Great view. Fancy. Lazy waitress. However...if you are a foodie forget it. The food is "ok". Think wedding reception. Homogonized. Bland. The oyster shucker is lazy. Ruins blue points. There was grit and they were still attached by the foot. Sauce bland. Lobster bisque was a joke. Basically it was a thin butternut squash soup with one... 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
