OMG so many awful things happened to our family here on a very special night. We had 6:00 pm reservations...we got seated at 7:10 pm. Why would this place take these reservations if they could not accommodate us. Here is the answer: The wait staff...was beyond horrible. We sat down and ordered appetizers and drinks in celebration of Christmas Eve. Drinks were delivered 45 minutes later. That's right 45 minutes. The appetizers never came. When we acknowledged the drinks finally coming the waiter said "There are over 400 people here and it was NOT HIS FAULT...Hey it wasn't our fault either! So the drinks were served with 3 out of the 6 incorrect and one person who asked for a double was totally embarrased to be told that the single shot was "all that could be fit in a glass" it was a martini! Hello there ....but he presented 2 of another drink, also a martini. When he came to take our order, exactly 1 hour later my cousin asked for another server to help us. We had been there for 3 hour on Christmas Eve for GOODNESS sakes... they sent another server to take our order and yet another hour later, when the restaurant was half empty we received our food. That's right, a 4 hour dinner on a very special night. I got back to home at midnight and wrapped presents till 4 am. Such an awfully sad experience for a very special occasion.More

Delicious seafood dishes! Beautiful views. Can be a bit pricey, but lunch is always a great option. My favorites are seafood salads. Excellent bread!

Restaurant has a great view of marina Oakland waterfront. The oysters were very good and the cocktails were amazing. Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable. The Chinese chicken salad was delicious with tomato’s rather than mandarin orange.

I had not been to Scotts in over six yrs,. a friend suggested Scotts. Our knowledgeable waitress Sheryl was so gracious and friendly that I felt renewed. When my seafood salad came, it was a work of art. My friends chicken plate was prepared beautifully....I told the manager Ramiro Carbez the meal and service was excellent.More

Took family and friends here on our last night in Oakland. We ordered a variety of dishes, including a spicy shrimp appetizer, clam chowder, a Caesar salad, king crab legs, tuna, and Dungeness crab. All were well prepared, plentiful, and delicious! Service was attentive and...we were seated promptly (on a busy Saturday night). Highly recommended - but be prepared for the bill. It wasn’t cheap!More

Early dinner during restaurant week. Every aspect of my meal and time at Scotts was wonderful. Service was top and the fish was perfect. I highly recommend stopping in when in the area.

Amazing location, BUT... Food was just okay... service was not great and pricing way too high for the overall product they deliver.

Scott's is our usual venue for special occasions. Not only is the food reliably great, the service is also top-notch, the view is lovely and they go out of their way to help you celebrate your important day.
