The mysteriously buttery texture of seafood was explained in a 2009 book entitled I Believe the Ocean Was Once Filled with Margarine. For $30, today’s Groupon gets you $60 worth of fresh Bay-area seafare and drinks for dinner at Scott’s Seafood. A classy spot for dressy seafoodies, Scott’s sixth-floor location provides a panoramic view of Silicon Valley.
Scott’s Seafood boasts a stunning dining room worthy of Neptune and his bridge posse, with long windows illuminating crisp, white tablecloths punctuated by glass vases and bright flowers. Daily delivered seafood fills a lavish dinner menu of maritime recipes including a deep-water prawn cocktail ($15.25), fresh Dungeness crab cakes ($15.25), and fried Pacific oysters in a spicy remoulade ($14.50). Heartier entrees include the filet mignon (served with a bell-pepper potato cake and mushroom ragout, $35.75), the mariner's dream grilled petrale sole dore with french fries and a lemon butter sauce ($23.50), and Australian lobster tail with Yukon gold potatoes (market price).
A professional staff accommodates any patron’s thirsty request with a full wine bar stocked with a diverse selection of local and international vintages. Scott's Seafood's elegant ambience makes it a fitting spot for any romantic night out that doesn't involve shucking corn or pasteurizing milk. Reservations are recommended, along with business-casual attire. Complimentary parking is validated for up to two hours.

Refined dishes inspired by culinary classics from New England to Louisiana fill the menu at Scott's Seafood. Sustainably fished salmon, raw oysters, and hearty chowder are prominent. However, this selection of upscale American cuisine also manages to incorporate entrees from the land, such as roasted chicken and Prime, dry-aged new york steaks. Servers confidently recommend pairings from the restaurant's international wine list, which highlights diverse California wines.
Choose Your View
From it's sixth-floor perch, Scott's Seafood overlooks the heart of San Jose and the nearby hills of Silicon Valley. These views are most impressive when viewed from the restaurant's patio, which is filled with stout wooden tables atop earthen tiles. During the colder months, outdoor heaters help keep the space comfortable, as do the flickering flamers of the massive stone fireplace.
The indoor dining area features a more contained ambiance, but still embraces the same elegant, modern aesthetic as the patio. Aqua-blue paintings and verdant potted plants lend a vibrant splash of color amid the space's sleek use of neutral-toned walls, stark white tablecloths, and brushed metal railings.
