Great Cioppino and ample free parking

This great restaurant is on the top floor of a 5 story parking garage; be sure and get your parking ticket validated. The Cioppino was fantastic. The tomato based soup was loaded with shell fish, especially scallops. Besides the scallops, it had good fish morsels. Although it was advertised to... read more

Nice establishment, but the food does not worth the price. You can spend your money more efficiently in a different restaurant in the same price range.

Good food with great friends... Some things are a little pricey but for the most part the price was good for what you got.

I had seafood special and it was excellent. If you dine on the patio, the view is wonderful. I also enjoyed the 3 piece acoustic band that played that evening. If you are a seafood lover, this place is an excellent value.

I really enjoy the Happy Hour at Scott's Seafood. With a 6th floor outdoor patio, very reasonable drink prices, and very good snack selections along with a relaxed atmosphere, it is an ideal place to spend a couple of hours relaxing at Happy Hour. Add in the no hassle, validated parking in the adjacent parking garage and it all makes... More

Chose Scott's based on the hotel's recommendation for a place to get good seafood. I ordered a seafood salad, which was very fresh and tasty. It consisted of fresh and cold iceberg lettuce, sliced tomatoes, cucumber, avocado, olives, a hard-boiled egg, plus scallops, tiny shrimp and big prawns, and fresh crabmeat. It was quite tasty. My dining companion had ahi... More

Very nice restaurant, but average meal - not really worth the price. The scallops I had we on the mushy side, shrimp was good, lobster was also pretty good. The often mentioned "view" from the restaurant was nothing to right home about.

Scott's has wonderful food and the atmosphere is amazing. Very convenient before a show at The San Jose Performance Arts. Their food is fresh and the staff is great. We will be back again.

When I stay somewhere by the ocean, I want fresh seafood. The hotel recommended Scotts to appease my appetite. The recommendation was spot on. The menu has a variety of items to choose from to meet your seafood needs. Every dinner at our table was well-prepared and very delicious. If you want great seafood within a short distance from The... More

The food was okay but the service was not so great. We started with one server and in the middle of our service ended up having the bartender serve us without any notice? I used to work in food service industry and it is always customary to let your guest know that server is changing hands. That wasnt worst...that i... More
