We had a nice afternoon & birthday celebration on the patio. Service was great although the restaurant was not crowded. Food was good - although prices are high We felt the staff went above and beyond to help us celebrate the birthday. Worth a stop for a special occasion.

Scott's is consistently delicious. We had lunch here with a good friend while visiting N. California and it was just as wonderful as we remembered. It's not inexpensive, but the food and wine are worth every penny. Highly recommend.

My family and I ate at Scott's last night for dinner because we'd just arrived in Oakland and it was near our hotel. The salmon festival options were great, we each had a different one, my son and I loved the garlic mashed potatoes. The romaine salad was sub-par, it looked like it had been sitting out for a while... More

The older folks will find plenty of dishes they recognize. The younger set will like the setting over the water and proximity to the water. Easy parking literally right under the restaurant. I have been the Coordinator for 2 dinners here - one was a Brunch for 95 and one was a New Years lunch for 30 and we had... More

First, it's pricey for what you get. $38 a bottle for house wine. Spinach salad was drenched in oil and I couldn't eat it. Told server and she did nothing about it. I had the swordfish at $36 which was very good!

On business in Oakland and met up with friends for dinner. Walked around and decided on Scott's seafood. Service was good, seated right away and we requested patio. We ordered the macadamia nut crusted mahi, calamari, and the burger. Everything came out delicious. The calamari had a great garlic sauce and we dipped the sourdough bread into it. The mahi... More

If you like FROZEN fish of any kind, this is your place. When we asked the server if the fish was fresh she first said YES! After tasting it and complained about the freshness (it tasted like freezer burned), she confidianly admitted that EVERYTHING is frozen!! And it is overpriced. Your are better-off buying frozen fish entrees from Safeway.

Just had very nice experience today at the Scott's Seafood Restaurant at Jack London Square in Oakland, California. I like the Seafood Salad. It's fresh with scallop, little shrimps, beautiful avocado and in great portion. We told the waiter Jesus that we like to share for three of us. To our pleasant surprise, the salad delivered to us with three... More
