This restaurant serves up very good food. Rich but good. Super wine list at good prices. Definitely recommend it.

So, while our dinner has always been good, it's just not delicious. My husband will typically order a nice steak, and I usually order fish. When the bill comes we're like, really? I think this restaurant is a bit over rated

3 people for a weekday lunch and the bill was over $100 with no alcohol! The food was good; but, the prices were outrageous! I am not sure, I can afford to go back for lunch.

Our last dinner in Oakland was at Scott's Seafood in Jack London Square. This was a fitting end to a wonderful six days in this area. Enrique, our waiter, was fantastic and attended to our every need. We started with the walnut and pear salad followed by cioppino, sea bass and swordfish for the main courses. We had a window...

If I was a tourist (I am a local) and I could not make it to SF for fresh crab I would be satisfied with Scott's. I only come during the holiday season and they do an amazing job with decorations along with carolers who come and sing at your table (but only if invited). They also have a great... More

My wife and I have eaten at Scott's on many occasions - and have always enjoyed a great meal and excellent service. The restaurant has a prime location in Jack London Square right on the water with beautiful views of the Oakland estuary. Service is smooth and professional and the seafood is invariably fresh and perfectly prepared. On a nice... More

Everything about Scott's is first-rate. The ambiance is great -- with waterfront views and a rich interior. The service was perfect -- friendly, informative, and prompt. I had the sea bass -- perfectly crusted and flavored. And all of this was had at a reasonable price.

Being from a state not known for seafood I was excited to fly into Oakland and go to the best place around for seafood. I have to say I was a little disappointed. The Dungeness crab was delicious but the fried oysters were disgusting. We sent those back. The seafood salad was great but our server never brought the dressing.... More

I met friends here for any early dinner. Our server, Katherine, was excellent, friendly and informative. Just the right amount of friendly interaction. We all enjoyed our individual choices. My salmon with roasted vegetables was perfect. We arrived about 4:30 and there were only a scattering of tables occupied. By 5:30 all tables were filled. We enjoyed the high school... More
