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

  • "Service and food are always great- came for anniversary dinner all the way from Los Angeles - my wife was looking forward to their lobster, but was told they did not have it due to supply issue - when the waitress say my wife's disappointment, she spoke to the chef, and hey put together some baby tails that were amazing - there was no stress, many laughs, and we felt well taken care of by our server - can't say enough what a pleasant experience we had -"

  • "I ordered a shrimp & scallop combo. By the time my food arrived at my table, it was already cold. The mashed potatoes were hard, the steamed veggies were cold, discolored and unappetizing (they looked like they had been cooked quite a long time ago and were just now making it to my plate), and my seafood was cool as well. the scallops tasted quite gritty. It was disappointing, as I have eaten at the Scoma's over in Sausalito many times and usually take my family and friends there to dine when they come to visit. The food at that location has always been consistently good. This time we went to Scoma's in San Francisco instead, and it was disappointing. It certainly wasn't worth the hefty price."

  • "Scoma's is not the same - truly disappointed especially with first-time visitors to the Wharf. The location and ambiance is still there. The wait staff is attentive and friendly, but the food didn't warrant the extravagant prices, even for its "name." Delicious bread and crab cakes. The oyster selection didn't include any local oysters which would have been better than what we had. My husband was looking forward to the Cioppino and he was so disappointed. Rightfully called "poor man's Cioppino" for the lack of seafood in it. Altho' my garlic roasted crab was tasty, it was very small, making cracking and eating difficult. Guest couldn't even finish her Ahi patty, all filling and little tuna. That sums up Scoma's - Too little for Too much."

  • "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."

  • "Too expensive given the location and lack of superior quality. We also didn't care for the excessive number of golfing photos."
    Dined on 8/18/2014
  • "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."

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."

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."
