Great dining experience, "Top-Shelf", exceptional service along with a great atmosphere enhanced by the view. If you find yourself near Jack London Square you must check out Scott's Seafood Restaurant for an appetizer and drinks. Ideal for special occasions and intimate dinners.

I've eaten in Scotts restaurants in other Calif. locations, and this one was typical. The sea food was ok, but did not wow me. I did like the stuffed prawn salad for lunch and liked it, but if you are really hungry its not big enough alone. The sourdough bread was good. Lunch was ok, and a dinner I had... More

Scott's has been a mainstay at Jack London Square for many years and the food is consistently good. They have valet parking and have a tent that hosts many fun events such as weddings, Chamber of Commerce, Raiders and Warriors events. They also have live piano during Sunday Brunch, which adds a festive air.

Never stayed in Oakland before and was hesitant to venture out. Another restaurant close by to Scotts was recommended and I decided to go here. The service was great especially the hostess, the view was great and I ordered the swordfish which was cooked to perfection. The hostess made the evening special by paying attention to details. I would return... More

Very good food. But when there are large crowds on a weekend, and there is a buffet option ... Resist the buffet option. Entrée choices tastier, and nice to be served there when it is not busy. Jack London square location outdoor sitting very nice experience.

I visited the restaurant for a business dinner in June. The food was amazing and the view is remarkable! The service was a bit slow, but the friendly service made up for it. I will go back when I'm in town again.

My husband and I frequent Scott's quite a bit to enjoy the happy hour in the bar area and live music. Happy hour is all night starting at 4 or 5pm until closing and I believe it's every day (we usually only go weekdays). Nowadays, you can't find a happy hour this long in the bay area and, believe me,... More

It was a long time since we ate at Scott's. This time it was a special treat as we had an event to celebrate. My friend ordered a two pound Maine lobster for me. While I felt bad when the crustacean was brought live to the table for inspection, when cooked, it tasted delicious. Maine lobster is so superb in... More
