Don't get the paella!

I took a grp of 7 employees to this location, having been to the one in Costa Mesa, which I really enjoyed. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend the paella, as it was tasteless, soupy rice w/ a bit of tasteless fish and crustaceans thrown in. My fellow diners had wonderful salmon and other fish... read more

I wasn't very hungry so only had a starter and soup. Both was delicious, the wine recommendation was good. The waiter was in training (had a colleague watching most of the time) was very good. I recommend the place.

I was very excited to try Scott's in San Jose. Of course, it is a wonderful place with high-end ambiance. I was dressed casual, but many patrons had ties and jackets. I think the price is quite high for the meal served, but, it's San Jose... My colleagues had the paella, which looked like the real winner for the menu.... More

I have gone here many times as it's next the San Jose Center for Performing Art. The staff have been very flexible. It's a fun atmosphere on the outdoor area too... right before the show. Food was good too.

Scotts is a great restaurant down town from the service to inside or outside dining to the food. When it's warm eating under the stars and viewing the city's lights is a terrific dining experience.

Scotts Seafood has been reliably good for many years. It's convenient to The Tech, the Fairmont Hotel, the San Jose Museum of Art. The service is good, the food fresh and delicious, and the views, particularly from their lovely patio are wonderful.

We went here for a Contra Costa Realtor event so it was a set menu. I picked the clam chowder which was rich, thick and creamy. My entree was salmon with Beurre Blanc sauce. The salmon was flaky and fresh but the flavor was ok. For dessert I chose the molten lava cake. It was gooey, chocolaty and yummy! I... More

Always enjoy Scotts. Typically have a good selection of fresh seafood to satisfy my fish cravings. Also love their dessert called the Raspberry Jack.
