About the restaurant
***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.

QUICK REVIEW: A very pleasant surprise. Food, service, wine choices - all excellent. We travel extensively and Waterfront I would recommend to anyone looking for a nice relaxing seafood menu. Yes, we will be back. LONGER REVIEW: Seated at a partial booth on time by request. Nice upscale atmosphere on the river. Indoor and outdoor seating. SERVICE: Kent - our main server was outstanding. There when you needed him with a great attitude and advice. Nice job! WINE: A good list by the glass - many you cannot get in other parts of the country. Wine by the bottles also very nice list. Cocktails looked yummy - but maybe next time. FOOD: Went straight for entrees. Cioppino and the Sea Bass with fettucine. The fettucine was house made - and you can tell the chefs put effort in the dishes. Nothing left on the plate and bowl and we are not big people. Excellent, Very Tasty. The bread pudding was a delight to share for dessert. OVERALL: Our first experience with Waterfront - Highly Recommend. YES, we will be back.

About the restaurant
Pacific Catch is a WestCoast Fish House dedicated to delivering high quality sustainable seafood with a unique perspective. From the day we opened we've been mindful about where our ingredients come from and how to bring to life the vibrant flavors and feeling of the Pacific. It's our commitment to our guests to keep things interesting, innovative, wholesome and thoughtfully sourced. That's why we've formalized our relationship with the Monterey Bay Seafood Aquarium's Seafood Watch, James Beard Foundation's Smart Catch and the Surfrider Foundation by becoming a partner and bringing on a director of sustainability to help steward these efforts.

We will be following the most stringent protocols on cleaning, sanitization, social distancing, and protections for employee health including temperature taking and the use of protective masks and gloves.

Recently visited Pacific Catch for lunch. Menu had lots of options but half of our group ordered from a smaller 15.00 menu. Food was well presented and delicious. Very impressed and will definitely return when in the area.

Fresh live crabs! I recommend their set menu options that include crab, spring rolls and cabbage salad. A little bit of everything to enjoy. Server lady was very nice and pleasant and clean setting. Only thing is parking can be difficult.
