Our friend took us here before heading to the airport. First impression was a classy restaurant, white tablecloths, waitstaff dressed well, and a good menu. Our food was delicious, prepared expertly, including the sides. Views were great. We'd definitely go again and again.

The service and view are both good at this fine dining restaurant but we found the food unremarkable and the prices high. I ordered a seafood entrée that was supposed to be prepared in garlic butter and it came with a thick sauce on it. Yuck.

When in the Oakland area I usually have a lunch or dinner at Scotts. The service is as good as it gets. Very expensive but we'll worth it

We went to Scott's around the Christmas Holidays. I was beautifully decorated inside and looking out the window some of the boats where decorated with lights and it was just lovely. The food here is very good. We had Clam Chowder ( tasty) and other dishes were very well prepared. Even though they were very busy we were seated quickly.... More

This restaurant serves up very good food. Rich but good. Super wine list at good prices. Definitely recommend it.

So, while our dinner has always been good, it's just not delicious. My husband will typically order a nice steak, and I usually order fish. When the bill comes we're like, really? I think this restaurant is a bit over rated

3 people for a weekday lunch and the bill was over $100 with no alcohol! The food was good; but, the prices were outrageous! I am not sure, I can afford to go back for lunch.

Our last dinner in Oakland was at Scott's Seafood in Jack London Square. This was a fitting end to a wonderful six days in this area. Enrique, our waiter, was fantastic and attended to our every need. We started with the walnut and pear salad followed by cioppino, sea bass and swordfish for the main courses. We had a window...

If I was a tourist (I am a local) and I could not make it to SF for fresh crab I would be satisfied with Scott's. I only come during the holiday season and they do an amazing job with decorations along with carolers who come and sing at your table (but only if invited). They also have a great... More

My wife and I have eaten at Scott's on many occasions - and have always enjoyed a great meal and excellent service. The restaurant has a prime location in Jack London Square right on the water with beautiful views of the Oakland estuary. Service is smooth and professional and the seafood is invariably fresh and perfectly prepared. On a nice... More
