Sorry but I just feel like they're going through the motions here. Food is OK not special and a bit pricey. In my experience service has been mediocre as well. A nice view of the water however

Took the family for a recent lunch.....the crab salads are consistently good, fish fresh and tasty no matter what you order. My 7 year old granddaughter discovered clam chowder, and ate all mine! French bread crusty, but a bit doughy in the center. Service fine, and the views of the estuary and bay are great, with walking along the promenade... More

The restaurant is large, and if you... More

Scotts seafood restaurant has been around for years. I can say it had been awhile since I dined here. It was just as I remembered it. The scallops were a bit over done. The meal was average, but the company I was with excellent.

This classic restaurant offers a fabulous view of the SF Bay. Located in the old Jack London Square, this restaurant has withstood time - and is still successful because of the food, the view, and the service. This week, my husband and aunt visited for lunch. Hubby enjoyed delicious Petrale Sole, Auntie had a fabulous chicken salad, and I had... More

We had a fine 80th birthday dinner at Scott's, and that was mostly about the dining room staff. There was live music when our party of 8 arrived -- too much back ground noise for the birthday girl. Staff was very obliging and quickly shifted our group to the table furthest from the music. Our waiter was EXCEEDINGLY friendly and... More

We didn't have reservations but we were seated fairly quickly. The bar area is very nice and the bartenders were very helpful and attentive. Seated in the back by the window with a wonderful view of the water. Server told us it would be a while before she would be able to take our order. The restaurant was quite busy... More

From the looks of this restaurant the location and the prices I expected the food and service to be spot on. especially in this location. There are so many excellent choices in the area. The server was inattentive and not very helpful. Her response to every question was that choice would be nice. Food arrived for three of us and... More

Visited in July with a group of 5. Arrived early and had drinks at the bar. We were served house made potato chips -best part of the dinner! Seriously I've been obsessing about them ever since! Dinner was solid. Good service. I had clam chowder and the crab and avocado salad. Others in our party had lobster ravioli, swordfish and... More
