***Scoma's gladly welcomes reservations, as well as walk-in guests on a first come first served basis. You can also call 415.771.4383 during our operation hours for assistance with reservations. ***


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.

    Always outstanding, this is our #1 favorite Seafood restaurant on the San Francisco wharf. I love the Clam Chowder and always order a bowl!💕 For decades we will bring family and visitors to experience the freshest and most delicious seafood. The staff is friendly and professional (many whom we’ve seen over the decades) The valet parking is a big plus.

    Food was ok, no real complaints but we had a very awkward interaction with the server that ruined the evenings experience. Maybe a one off, but certainly not rushing back. - Update - appreciated immediate call back from manager. Thank you.

    Excellent experience. Not quite as noisy as some of the other city restaurants because it is spread out more into different rooms. The waiters are old souls and very gentlemanly.  The clam chowder was the best. Seared Shrimp and scallops were excellent. They give you bread for starters and don’t make you pay for it. Overall highly recommended!

    What a wonderful experience last night at Scoma’s. We sat at the bar and was served by Steve, the bartender. Food was excellent! Started with clam chowder and entrees were Mixed Seafood Grill and Pasta con Vongole. Couple next to us purchased a drink for us🍸🍸as we were celebrating 6 years together, 5 married. Plus my husband’s birthday. Hope to come back again real soon!!! Janet and Steve Pedelty

    My husband and I chose to dine at Scoma’s while in San Francisco for just 1 night, and are so glad we did! We made a reservation ahead of time to secure our table and got a great booth with a slight water view. The food was amazing and the service was top notch. We would definitely go back the next time we’re in town! Highly recommended!

    Been going to Scoma’s since I was a little kid traveling from Hawaii in 1972. Still fond memories of the best seafood anywhere! Now I’m bringing my kids and brought my mom again since she is visiting from Hawaii.

    I wanted to spend the day in San Francisco as I had never been so I flew in in the morning from LAX and flew out to london in the evening. Scoma’s was recommended to me and I am so glad it was. I spent the afternoon in the great ambiance, tasting the great food (especially the fresh anchovies) and being looked after by the lovely Elizabeth. Altogether a wonderful experience.

    Because our server was noticeably ruder to our table than other tables for the entirety of our meal, we tipped the server less than standard. I believe this to be fair since the server rudely gestured and pointed at us to move things at the table, was curt and neglectful, and even slapped our bill on the table. The server then chased after us when we had already left the restaurant, demanding that we tip more. The food was disappointing to say the least. The two appetizers we ordered were plated together. The calamari was soggy with oil, and the crab cakes were uninteresting. The spicy cauliflower was almost inedibly spicy. The linguine was fine. I would not recommend coming here, especially to avoid the one old, bearded server with the discriminatorily rude attitude.

    We enjoyed our evening at Scoma's and the service was very good. The food was very good and I really enjoyed that the portions were generous especially the vegetables. My salad was the baby gem lettuce with vinergarette and I had Halibut that was fabulous. Food was hot. I would not recommend the Tiramisu for dessert - it was alittle dry.

    This iconic San Francisco restaurant still shines. Such a fun collection of autographed celebrity photos! I appreciate the traditional atmosphere and being able to hear my dinner partner. We loved the fried anchovies as our appetizer, and everything was tasty. Great Manhattan, too! I enjoyed my Petrale Sole, but it was not the Dore I remember which was egg-battered and butter-saucy, while what I had was just dry-fried. Suggest the kitchen check the recipe. Of course, you can no longer get the abalone, but that is understandable.

    Not consistent. Food was much better 2month and 5 month ago. I know its hard to find workers. The Waiter was fine but other services was lacking. The steam clams were really gritty and the Cioppino tomato sauce was really tart.

    Food was delicious- best calamari we’ve ever had! Our waiter was quite stand off ish - definitely not very attentive - then an XL group of bachelors were seated next to us making it impossible to hear at our own table. That was our cue to leave.

    Food and service excellent. The only problem I see is that the tables are so close together that you’re practically sitting on top of the people at the next table. And it makes it very hard to be comfortable much less get up and use the restroom.
