I can't believe it, a decent brunch can be found in San Jose. I'm always on a quest for a great Sunday brunch spot and when I heard that Scott's Seafood offered a real brunch I had to try it. Got in, got seated, white linens on the tables, nice well arranged buffet, I knew it was going to be... More

Seldom review poorly, but Scott's did not meet expectations last night, which turned out to be a bit of a bummer. Had a reservation at 8, was seated at about 8:30, which is expected near the holidays. Unfortunately, the downhill slide continued. Menu turned out to be overpriced, kids menu is wholly inadequate and tasteless, oysters rockefeller merely warm, seafood... More

I hadn't been to Scotts for years and when it came to mind for a date night. The menu has a great selection of seafood and steak options. The reason I'm writing this though is the ahi appetizer. I like a good ahi app and have had many but this one was bar none the best. The meat was butter... More

Came here for date night. I read the reviews on here before we chose this restaurant. The ambience and waitstaff were fantastic. The fish was average. We had crabcakes, halibut, and Seabass. None of those were seasoned well. The vegetables were delicious. The lobster bisque was too salty. The cocktails, however, were fantastic! They were the highlight of our evening.... More

Scott's has been in business for decades. I think it is sitting on its past reputation. The views are beautiful, but it is quite loud inside. So loud that I had to ask people at my table to repeat themselves multiple times. And this was a night when the restaurant was not full and there was no live music. The... More

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! The seafood salad was very generous with lots of scallops and shrimp...and if there was an item you didn't want they left it off and gave you more of the others. Our server was very thoughtful...
