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

We found ourselves with a few hours to kill before getting on a plane and flying back to Idaho. Scott's was the place we chose to do it. We had dined here often over the years, but never had the Sunday Brunch. We found a live jazz band, with and exceptional singer and buffet to die for. To much buffet... More

We had a wonderful weekend at the Marina in Oakland. Had "bay view" rooms at the Waterfront Hotel next to Scott's Seafood Restaurant. We Enjoyed the Friday evening Entertainment, featuring a wonderful songstress named Marcella Parker Hooks. Then went back on Sunday for the Famous Scott's Brunch and more Entertainment with Ms. Marcella Hooks. The Food and the Entertainment were... More

Didn't plan to have dinner at Scott's at Jack London Square in Oakland, CA, until relatives visited us in San Francisco. So all of us decided to have dinner at Scott's Seafood Restaurant in Oakland. It was a great choice! For opener, we had a trio of appetizers (calamari, crab cake, etc.) We selected Roadhouse Prawn Salad and Bay Shrimp... More

I've always loved the view at Scott's. My small family had dinner on Christmas Eve. Reservations made and seating was right on time. The waiter was friendly and helpful. The food was nothing special at all, especially for the price. I expected the usual prices at Scott's, but did not expect the lackluster dishes.

This was a successful business trip and our vendor treated us to a classy night out. Seafood is the specialty and five of us over did it with appetizers and Maine Lobster. Service, atmosphere, view (on the Bay). Every aspect of this night was first class!! $$$$. We were worth it.

We are visiting Oakland, and wanted a nice evening out for dinner. The concierge recommneded Scott's. We made reservations, and we're very happy at the decor (beautiful, classy Xmas decorations), the service - all courses timed well with no rush - and the superb food. While it was expensive, it was well worth it.

Over priced and over seasoned seafood. I had the crusted ahi tuna - seared. The sauce overwhelmed the tuna so you could not taste the freshness of the fish. The vegetables were fresh but not something out of the ordinary. And the service was nothing special either. I would have rated this place higher but I thought the prices were... More

My wife and I had a wonderful meal. The New England clam chowder was scrumptious. One of the things that's sets fine restaurants apart is there ability to provide excellent accompaniment to the main course. In this regard Scotts didn't disappoint. The green beans were fantastic as well as the garlic mashed potatoes and sauteed potatoes. For the main course... More

Thirty years ago, my husband and I frequented the Scott's Restaurant in Embarcadero One (?) in San Francisco. It was the place to dine whenever we were celebrating each other's accomplishments in the City. This place did not disappoint while we were on vacation last weekend. My Sole was cooked to perfection, and the Calamari appetizers were full of garlicky... More
