The service was great last night, and the place was almost full, which pleases me greatly. I love to see restaurants succeed. The problem, if there was one, was the food. And it was just....average. There was no sparkle, no zing, no moment when I was delighted with the food. And I do love to be delighted, the whole idea... More

We are season ticket holders to the San Jose Center for Performing Arts (24 years!) We dine at Scotts occasionally as they offer free validated parking. We sometimes go for a nightcap and often see actors from the theater.

I was out with a friend walking around downtown San Jose admiring all the lights and trees at Christmas in the Park and we were craving seafood so off to Scott's we went without a reservation. It's a bit of a throwback restaurant from the 90's but doesn't disappoint. Grilled asparagus, crusted ahi tuna, nice wine list ... everything was... More

our first visit, the restaurant was not overly busy, we were taken to our table to find food from earlier guest on all the chairs, so first impression was a little disappointing.
