We have dined here numerous times over the past, many years, though not frequently. Every time we have enjoyed excellent seafood meals. The staff in each instance has also been attentive and courteous without being obsequious or fawning. Our choices of fish were were done to perfection, and the appetizer of calamari was coated with the lightest, not heavily caked,... More

My wife and I went to scott's seafood in Palo Alto. Got seated quickly and served quickly. Actually I was amazed how quick we were served. I had the seafood salad and it was great. My wife has BBQ Salmon and she loved it. I would totally go here again.

Looking for a restaurant close to our hotel we chose Scott's Seafood. I think it was an okay choice. My sea bass was nicely prepared and the butter lettuce salad was very good. My husband enjoyed the seafood linguine and prawns. We both thought the dessert of raspberries and ice cream was unusual and tasty. Service was just so so....

We had mixed opinions. Of course, that depends on what you order. I got the fish & chips which was very average and unremarkable. Another one of us got the petrale sole dore and thought it was outstanding. My wife liked hers. The service was outstanding, and the server was very knowledgeable.

I've been to Scott's twice, most recently the other evening for dinner. We dined on the patio on an amazing evening in Palo Alto, so the environment and where we were seated was very nice. Dinner options had me all over the menu. Our server was awesome and gave us the legit answers to all of our questions, and went... More

We stopped in straight from a hospital visit, nothing to eat since last night. Comparing this stop at Scott's with much earlier stops, all was familiar and great. One noticeable difference was a "new to me" waiter. He was just great also from greeting to taking/delivering our order, answering our questions, checking on us, and delivery of their wonderful coffee,... More

I remember Scott's as a Bay Area institution as I grew up there and had a fantastic meal back when I was in high school for prom in their Oakland location. Many years later, when I was looking for a dinner location on Valentine's Day, I figure that I might have a similar experience in the Palo Alto location. I... More
