Met with friends who travelled from Kenya. We had so much fun and a great meal and excellent service. Thank you so much Scotts! Our server Sept 7 for dinner I wish I could remember his name was outstanding. Food and wine choices were memorable. Thanks for a great evening meant a lot to us!

Average food, unattentive service, boring menu, pretty much sums up Scott's? At then end of the meal the waitress actually asked if we were celebrating anything special, very strange timing to me as the bill was being rang up

We remember when Scott's was THE place to eat seafood in the '70's. But this is 2012, and time has mostly passed them by. The fish is slightly overcooked by today's standards, and the sauces pretty much begin and end with lemon/butter/white wine. Not bad, but no longer mind-blowing. What they do well is: fried calamari, which is served with that lemon butter sauce and delicious, if lousy for your arteries. Popcorn shrimp, same. Shrimp salad sandwich is better than the crab salad sandwich. Best of all is the burger at lunch: lunch is quieter, calmer; with a tasty burger with a good bun. Everything else is mediocre, although at least the Boudin sourdough bread is absolutely fresh every day.

The time to come is for the Lighted Boat Parade every December. It happens literally right outside the windows. You MUST make a reservation well in advance, and expect service to be slightly below the barely adequate level it usually it. It is crowded, but a genuinely fun way to begin the holiday season!

I think that many people who rate these Oakland Restaurants are a bit off. Scott's Seafood (just like kincaid's) is a corporate restaurant focused more on up-selling. Their food isn't terrible, but it's definitely no shining star compared to the gems all over the city of Oakland. Their food is average but I suppose you pay for the spectacular view. The only time I eat here is for the occasional happy hour dinner about once a year (if that) and I live in close proximity.

If you want a nice place to go for a romantic dinner, a nice celebration, or some exceptional cuisine, check out (in no particular preference order) places like:

Hudson, Wood Tavern, Khana Pena, Acote - College Avenue
Comis, Dopo - Piedmont Avenue
Mezze, Side Bar - Lake Merritt
Flora, Pican - The Uptown Area
Rumbo Al Sur - Glenview

And there are so many other great places!
