A business anniversary celebration was held at Scott’s in Jack London Square and I was very impressed with the service and food particularly considering that we were a group of about twenty. The ahi and salmon tartare appetizer was a standout as was the crab and avocado tower salad, a very pretty creation . The spinach and walnut salad and... More

the menu and preparations are like the 1960's. Bland and expensive. The service was fine. The atmosphere was predictably a pier restaurant from the past. What a waste of a great location.

Overpriced uninspired food and bad cocktails. As a local here in Oakland please do not waste your valuable vacation time and money here. Oakland has much so better to offer.

We've been a few times over the years and feel no need to return. The location is lovely along the water, but there are better restaurants in the same vicinity with similarly excellent views. The food is average and it feels like you're on a cruise ship, instead of in a spectacularly vibrant foodie city such as Oakland. The service... More

A beautiful location on the water in Jack London Square. The calamari is superb as are all of the seafood dishes at Scott's. I love coming here as the service and food are always impeccable!

Mixed emotions. We sat on the patio for lunch with a fabulous view. The food was very good, open-faced salmon sandwich was big and the proscuitto-wrapped stuffed shrimp salad was excellent. The mark-up on wine however was ridiculous. A $17 bottle from any grocery store priced at $54? Service was friendly but very slow even though there was no-one there.

Had a glass of wine at the bar and watched two seat mates devouring great looking appetizers so we decided to do the same in the restaurant. Nice table on the water and excellent service. And, Boudin Sourdough! Shared steamed clams, incredibly good oysters and outstanding crabcakes. A shellfish bonanza. Plenty of food for two and less than the cost... More

We've been to this restaurant many times because the food is wonderful and the service is spectacular. Everything we've ordered, salads, seafoods and desserts are beautifully prepared and very flavorful. This restaurant is also located at the waterfront so the views of the harbor are beautiful.

My Lovely Wife & I have been with our Uncle Sam. (Not that Uncle Sam! This is one is a real salty character) I can most highly recommend this high end eatery. Especially the superb New England Clam Chowder. Coupled with some out of the world fresh baked bread and generous amounts of butter. You will then have a tasty... More

Looked forward to eating here. Had heard good things about it. Unfortunately, this one experience left me... disappointed. The restaurant was not that busy but we waited an unusually long time for everything, the food was served cold, and the quality... average at best. We sat out on the patio which was beautiful and our waitress was pleasant. But all... More
