We have been to Scott's before as a couple and enjoyed each visit. This time we attended a wedding party for about 80 people and had the entire outside deck for our party. It was perfect! The steaks and seafood that were served were prepared to perfection (how they did it for 80 people I do not know) and they... More

Went with a large group. Quality food and service. Unfortunately we couldn't sit out on the balcony pictured (ask when you book). They also had a 2 man band out there and fireplace - very cool. Would definitely return.

Been coming here for almost 2 decades, and I never get bored of the view from the dining room. One of the few restaurants downtown that is on the top floor of a building (maybe the only one). We've always enjoyed the food and service too. They now have a cool outdoor patio.

I've been coming to Scott's for years - so that probably tells you most of what you need to know. The food is reliabily tasty, service is efficient and unobtrusive. And watching planes weave between the buildings on approach to SJC always makes for good conversation when entertaining out of town guests!

Came here before we saw Phantom of the Opera. It's almost across the street for the Theater of the Performing Arts. Make sure you make a reservation because many people decide at the last minute to eat here before the theater. The view is beautiful as you are at the top of a building. The waiter was terrific, clearly used... More

With perfect weather we enjoyed a beautiful evening on the roof top patio. We attended a private party where I had the best Filet I ever tasted. This is a fantastic restaurant, outstanding service for a romantic eavening or a night out with friends. There is ample parking and elevator from ramp garage to the restaurant.

This is a good place to take your business associate or customer for a quiet meeting with some privacy. The menu selection is good and service is above average. Prices are above average. Easy to get to and park. Great for a quick business lunch.

The food is ok but not fantastic. Our waitress was excellent. We kept it tight with Calamari and Sole. Not bad but not great.

10 of us dined on the roof while in San Jose for a conference. The ambiance was very nice. Food and service were excellent. This place is a bit pricey -- more than I usually spend, but this was an occasion that doesn't present itself very often. The food was presented nicely and was delivered to the table nice and...
