Overall good seafood

Food is always fresh. It's not the nicest spot decor wise but what I care mostly about is the food. Service is also good for what it is.

View is excellent. You can just sit and watch the water and the boats in the bay. I was in town visiting my son for his 30th Birthday. Being half way across the United States I was hoping for something special for the event. Scotts made that happen. Our waiter asked what was the occasion and we told him it... More

Ate here for dinner, and it was mixed. Superb appetizers, including oysters and clam chowder, with the dinners, including ciopinno and linguini and clams being just ok. Deserts were excellent. Returned for the Sunday brunch, which was a knockout. It included all you could eat shrimp, oysters, and crab. All the usual brunch items were there, including made to order... More

Visited with elders in wheel chairs in early evening, group of of 6, before the dinner rush. View was nice, ambiance nice, food very good. Service SUCKED. Everyones drink glasses empty most of the meal, they took empty drink glasses without asking if another drink was wanted. Pretty much abandoned our table once food was delivered. Picked up every plate... More

Is a bit overpriced for the amount of food/fish provided (portions are small). Yet, the service is very professional, the views outstanding and a great bar (although I'm not a drinker per se). They have great calamari and fresh French (sour dough I think) bread. Its a good 'date place' .

Wow....the help was third class, the food was so disappointing! Having dined there often on our business trios to Oakland, we were so surprised this time in the low quality, but consistent high price. When we arrived the hostess clearly had no idea what a good table was.....6 clean and empty tables available and she tried to shove us in... More

Recently two friends and I went to dinner at Scott's to celebrate the new year. The food was delicious, (calamari appetizer, petrale sole, sea bass and salmon) the live music playing in the background was entertaining and the service was very good. The waitress was very pleasant and attentive without being intrusive. Highly recommend.

This was my first visit to Scott's restaurant in Oakland. It is located in Jack London Square on the edge of the Oakland estuary. If they have valet parking, it was not evident as it was not possible to drive up to the front door due to barricades on the main street. There was a public parking building across the... More

The best part is we were walking out and Mark Davis that owns the Oakland Raiders was there. He said high to us, shook are hand and... More
