A word from Scoma's Restaurant
Our Fisherman's Wharf seafood restaurant is steeped in a family tradition of quality and service. Still family owned and operated, Scoma’s opened in 1965, when brothers Al and Joe Scoma took over a six table coffee shop serving fishermen on the wharf. Using their mother’s recipe collection, the Scoma brothers' humble café evolved over the years becoming the quintessential San Francisco dining destination it is today.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Anytime we are visiting San Fran, Scoma's at Fishermans Wharf is always a must visit. The food and ambience never disappoints. All of our appetizers (calamari, shrimp cocktail, clam chowder) were delicious! And, the entrees were amazing as well. The seafood tasted like it just came off the fishing boat. With the pierside ambience, lovely sunset, and wonderful service from Lillian, it was another fabulous meal at Scoma's!"

  • "A great place for any occasion. Have been here many times over the years and always find it wonderful. Just enough off the tourist traffic to not be over run by them. A nice mix of regulars and out of towners such as us. When people look down the alley they most often don't realize there is a fantastic restaurant on the pier."

  • "Scoma's SF birthday lunch was fantastic. The prices I thought were fair considering the location and history of the restaurant. My wife and I tried the hot appetizer consisting shrimp, calamari and two crab cakes. Breaded calamari was cooked with no rubbery texture and the crab cakes had plenty of crab in the mixture. We both had the scallops with a creamy saffron sauce. The scallops had an excellent carmelized "crust" and scallop was not dried out or rubbery. Garlic mashed potatoes and spinach were also great. Service was excellent as waiter and bus boy worked in a team. Bread, water, and clearing plates was spot on. The food was worth every penny and I was not disappointed."

  • "Scoma's food, service, and location( on Pier 47 Fisherman's Wharf), cannot be beat. We have been going to Scoma's for over 30 years and have NEVER had as good a sea food as we have enjoyed at Scoma's. The fish is fresh, served perfectly, and always with a smile from the attentive, but not overly pushy, wait staff."

  • "Excellent service and seafood that was cooked perfectly and presented very nicely... it's just a bit off the hustle and bustle of the pier so if you prefer a quieter spot with water views, I strongly recommend this restaurant. Excellent, crisp salad, and a divine swordfish piccata! Outstanding service, too -- while we never waited for the next course, we were not hurried along as it sometimes happens in hot spots like this."

  • "Disappointed vs. what I had heard. The food was fresh but not kind of plain - not creatively presented or seasoned much. The atmosphere was also a little lacking - literally everyone around me was in jeans and tennis shoes. The view was OK - looking at a small boat slip with a side view of Aliotos and Grotto #9. One person, simple dinner $70 - Boudins Bistro is way better for the same money."

  • "Overrated. So many more better restaurants to choose from. The fish was good , but nothing special.Pasta as a side was totally watery and over cooked. The vegetables were tasteless. Could not order dessert, since waitress did not return to take order."

  • "Food is very good but overpriced. The restaurant adds an additional 4% tax to cover health care benifits for employees (you can thank our President once again for getting the government involved). So beware of an expensive meal."

  • "This restaurant was recommended by the concierge at my Hotel and it did not disappoint. The service was there when we wanted it but never obtrusive. The meals were well prepared and attractive and serving size was generous without being overly so. There is a good selection of wines to suit all tastes."

  • "Service was great until our server left for the evening. Once we received our food our steak was overcooked and took at least 25 minutes to get a new steak. I would not go back to this restaurant or recommend it. The amount we paid for the meal was to expensive for the quality of food we received."

  • "We had specifically requested a window table for our anniversary, but were seated in the middle of the room. Service was slow in the beginning, but we loved our waiter by the end! We found out a couple of days later, after being written up for a no show, that we did not receive our requested table because the hostess failed to check us in on our reservation. Our waiter made the evening memorable anyway, and the food was fabulous."

  • "Before going to Scoma's for our 7:30 reservation, we stopped by an aquarium and pier 39. Both were disappointments and I called to ask if we could come in an hour early. I was told I could but could not promise when we could be seated. When we arrived, they seated us in 5 minutes even though there many people waiting. Our server was very helpful and professional. We were served quickly and the food was very good. It was a great experience for our first time visit."

  • "As always, Scoma's was great. The service was very good, professional and friendly. The food was excellent. We started with oysters and they were exceptional. At our table we had the salmon, the cioppino and the Alaskan halibut. Everyone raved about how delicious their entree was and being family we each had a little taste of each other's dish. In a city full of wonderful restaurants this one stands out."

  • "Although this restaurant was quite pricy the food and service were excellent. I would only spend this much for meal on vacation!! Our server was fabulous. He made it all worthwhile for sure. Seafood was fresh and creatively prepared. Nice water view. Not as loud as I expected after reading reviews. We had a reservation and did not have to wait more than 5 minutes to be seated! Great time!!!"

  • "I am a long time fan of this restaurant. It's been a while since I have visited and this trip was to day the least disappointing. Place was hot especially for 9 in the evening. Food lacked some flavor. Overall was expecting a trip down memory lane instead I had your typical tourist place. Sad day."

  • "We arrived 30 minutes before our reservation and had Mai Tai's at the bar. Bartenders were friendly and the drinks were awesome. We had a party of four and everyone enjoyed their meal. Cioppino, mixed seafood grill and the salmon were delicious and fresh. Our waitress was great. The dessert menu looked tempting but we were too full to try any."

  • "I use a cane and was hard for me to walk and they were very kind and considerate. Even had the parking bring car to rear exit door to make it easier for me to leave the restaurant. Food was fantastic as was the staff. If your a local you know about Scomas if tourist on the SF warf you stumble upon a gem."
