Bijou Restaurant & Bar, will provide the East Bay with a chic new dining option. Bijou will showcase contemporary French/California cuisine, offered at reasonable prices. Bijou’s main dining room seats 80 guests, with space for 30 in the lounge and bar and 32 on the outdoor patio. <br /><br />Prepared by Executive Chef Christian Nam-Hee using seasonal, fresh, often locally sourced, organic ingredients. Chef Nam-Hee, a native of France, graduated from the Ecole de Paris des Metiers de la Table in Paris. His career includes time at a number of elite French restaurants such as Le Grenadin (under 2-star Michelin Chef Patrick Cirotte), La Chaumiere and Le Bienvenue. <br /><br />Bijou's bar specializes in creative mixology that bridges the gap between the kitchen and the bar. Taking fresh, seasonal produce and locally distilled, artisan spirits and creating amazing cocktails.

"I took advantage of a 'living social' coupon ($29) dinner for two. I had to choose from the price fix menu which was limited. My entrée portion was sufficient, however, my partners portion was extremely small, and neither entrée plate had a vegetable, which is very unusual. The food was well seasoned, so perhaps I would return to order from the regular menu."

Located in the heart of Jack London Square, Scott's Seafood restaurant has been the standard for fresh seafood in the Bay Area since 1976. With an incredible view of San Francisco and the Oakland waterfront, Scott's has been named the "Best Seafood Restaurant" in Oakland for a good reason. Scott's Famous Cioppino, Seafood Saute', Alaskan Halibut, New England Clam Bake Stew and our award winning Clam Chowder are some of the classic favorites. Piano bar every night with Maxine Glover playing Wednesday through Saturday. Also performing Sunday through Tuesday the incredible John Turk. The Sunday Jazz Brunch Buffet features "Just the Three of us" Jazz group each Sunday. Also, window and patio seating are on a first come first serve basis.<br />If you are in need of private dinning, please contact our catering services. Scott's offers private rooms for small intimate groups or larger groups up to 400 guests. We also do off-site catering. See you at Scott's!
