Recently stopped through San Jose to do a little sight seeing. We decided to have dinner at Scott's Seafood because it is on the sixth story of a downtown building and we could over look the city. We sat outside on the patio and enjoyed the evening breeze as well as the gas heaters (thank goodness). We enjoyed the Sangria... More

Really enjoyed my meal - calamari to start was standard fare but the halibut was amazing + a couple of glasses of chardonnay. Sat at the bar and got really good service. Definitely going back to try the jambalaya

Very enjoyable spot! Great patio with an impressive happy hour. The outdoor patio allows you to drink up the city views while the heaters keep you warm! The food quality & presentation are fair to any Scott's Seafood experience. Check out the happy hour during the week & see what you think!

This spot never disappoints. Quality food, ample parking (and validation) and very competent, friendly staff. We had dinner here before a show last night and the food was fantastic. I enjoyed seafood fettuccine and my husband enjoyed chowder and a beet salad. The wine and beer selections are also great. The walk to the concert was 3 minutes. How could... More

This place is amazing. I had the sesame tuna and it was to die for. The potion size was huge too. Will definitely go back.

You would think that a restaurant known for its seafood would have come up with better preparations. We started with a half dozen oysters, then shared the seafood salad and seared ahi tuna entree. The food was barely average, nothing that stood out. Atop that, our entree was delivered about halfway through the salad course (way too early), then the... More

Scotts seafood is your typically high-end seafood restaurant located on the 6th floor of a building. It has a nice view of the surrounding hills but the airplanes flying overhead are a nuisance. I ordered the almond crusted seabass with garlic mashed potatoes. The fish was cooked well and the potatoes were tasty. But the creme brûlée I ordered was... More

The service was very good but not excellent. We had to ask the waiter three times for lemon wedges and twice for water refills. He did recommend a good wine to go with our meal that was mid-price. The attention to detail was good but, again, not extraordinary. The view from the restaurant windows is fabulous. In my opinion the... More

Recommended by my dinner partner - one of the locals, so did not want to offend. But, I have had better seafood at a much better price. Started with calamari - warm, not hot, and slightly overcooked. Then on to the special - Salmon over jasmine rice with some veggies and what sounded like a good topping - BIG MEH!... More
