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 include crab and crab is in season, for some unknown... 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

Nice views, great server, good but cookie cutter wine list and overall good experience. The clam chowder was good, and I'd get it again, but it's not uniquely special. Enjoyed the Mahi Mahi dish, lots of garlic and flavors. Our waiter gave us a great wine recommendation and it was a good overall meal.

Scotts is well reviewed on Yelp and Open Table but I find it to be very average. It's nice to sit an look out on downtown San Jose but the place feels like a big cafeteria.

This place was very busy and so glad we had booked. The food was really good and we shared a starter - Crab Cakes - really were the best I have ever had - OK so I've not had many but these were delicious. Lots of white meat - not too greasy and great crumbed outside. Mains were equally good,... More

Scott's San Jose has undoubtedly one of the most beautiful rooftop patios I have ever experienced. It is a great place to sit and relax with friends over a drink. The gas fireplace is stunning and it gives off a good amount of heat. Check out the images on Google. It really looks like them! The planes landing at SJC... More

Had lunch at Scott's on a Friday. Weather was great so I opted to sit on the patio. Ordered the fish & chips. Service was excellent, food not so much. The fish was 3 small pieces , they were ok but not great. Would I go back? Probably for happy hour just to sit outside and enjoy the view, not... More

I enjoyed eating at Scotts on their awesome outdoor rooftop. The atmosphere was very relaxing with a huge fireplace on the left, blue light and the San Jose sky (of course the heat lamps help too). The dishes very served nicely. Salads were fresh and the main course (White Sea Bass among others) was well prepared. You can't go wrong... More

We decided to try a different Scott's at a different location since Scott's is one of my fav restaurants for over 30+ yrs. When I was younger, we used to go to the Scott's in SF Embarcadero years ago. The closest Scott's to me is now Oakland Jack London although on special occasions we go to the one in Walnut... More

After a long flight to California, a group of us decided to find something local and came across Scotts Seafood. Although the restaurant isn't easily accessible from the street, the walk from the garage wasn't bad at all. It was lunch time so there weren't alot of people, and the wait was non-existent. We decided to eat outdoors (beautiful weather... More
