My wife and I had a great brunch before the show. A bit pricy at $40 each, but a lot of great seafood choices including Crab Benedict and Salmon Alla Bella.

Very conveniently located downtown - perfect for a pre-theater meal. The salads were fresh and the lobster tails were huge - perfect to share!

Second time here for dinner before a show. The location is perfect and parking gets validated if you are going to the show. The menu is large and salads are very good. Service is also good and if you let them know you need to be at the show, they will make sure you are out in time. Will continue... More

Parked the car and saw this as I walked out to go to the Center of Performing Arts. Took the elevator to the sixth floor and sat at the bar for oysters and a drink. Very active place and the staff was on it. In and out very quickly but not rushed. Nice find as I had no idea where... More

The view was great. We enjoyed our Bellinis, several of them, and the food was excellent. If I go back to San Jose, I'd love to stop by there again.

When you walk off the elevator into the lobby, your senses are assaulted with the scent of cheap perfume--the kind that is mixed with industrial cleaning solution. We only went to Scott's because Morton's a few doors down had a 40 minute wait. Scott's was almost empty. That should have been a prescient warning. The bathrooms, although clean, were battered...

This downtown San Jose restaurant is consistently good, especially for seafood. My restaurant of choice when it comes to dining out before the theater.

It beats McCormick for sure. Since it's actual fresh seafood. But nothing really impressed me. Just a very average restaurant food wise. But being upstairs is super cool.
