“Nice food for sure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012 via mobile

We recently had dinner there and hike the food was good, no doubt, I was expecting a bit more. The prices are a bit too steep for the quality of the food. It was not bad at all but for the quality it was simply overpriced.

“Nice place although the food doesn't quite live up to the view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

This is the better of the side-by-side fish places on Jack London Square. The view is lovely and the outdoor seating on those days when the weather cooperates in the Bay Area is luxurious. The food is quite decent but nothing special. In the Bay Area we're spoiled and expect better. The atmosphere is fancy and the service is good. They tend to the more traditional seafood type dishes -- which is a plus.

“Not the Scott's I remember”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012 via mobile

Bland food. Really bland. Not worth the money. Big disappointment. Wait staff nice enough but ambiance and presentation just seems to lack class.

“Great as usual”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

I had visited this restaurant twice previously and this visit did not disappoint. The halibut was tremendous and the service was excellent. The view of the waterfront at Jack London Square was very pleasing.

“Lunchtimes at Scott's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

This last occasion was, I think, my third experience here. The menu is varied enough without being too long, the noise level is fine, the food is flavorful without being overpowering and the prices are fair. The service is responsive without being a nuisance.

I also enjoy watching the river go past while we dine.
