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.

Scoma's no longer uses Open Table so the hostesses said they would try to seat us. They did finally seat us after we reminded them we were waiting. The food was not worth the price nor wait.

Great food at a great out-of-the-way Fisherman's Wharf location.
Sonny was our waiter and he was wonderful.
Definitely worth a visit.

Still good, but may have slipped a bit over the 20 years that I have been visiting the restaurant.

Scoma's is an old favorite of mine, and every time I'm in the Bay Area Scoma's is a must! Right around the corner from tourist hell and tucked away nicely on a quiet pier where you can always count on excellent food and service.

We've been coming to Scomas for more than 40 years. Each and every time we have never been disappointed nor unhappy with the food, the service or the atmosphere. We chose to come back to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary.
We arrived 10 minutes early for our reservation and were immediately shown to our table .
Our waiter whose name was Sonny was a familiar face and greeted us warmly. He had been our waiter in previous visits.
The cocktails and food were excellent.
Once again we left with warm memories and smiles on our faces.
Thank you.

We arrived a half hour early and sat with our party of 7 in one of the two lounges instead of the bar. We ordered drinks and appetizers that were served promptly by our designated lounge waiter. We enjoyed both appetizers. We were also seated at our reservation time and had excellent service. Dinner was delicious! Four of our seven family members are gluten free and had plenty of delicious choices. We also ordered desert. We highly recommend the mango sorbet and the salted Carmel gelato. Absolutely delicious and large helpings to share with our entire table. We also appreciated the valet parking which added to our excellent visit.

Super expensive and fast-food grade food. We were so disappointed. Ordered special fried sole - was dried out and not good. Also ordered Cioppino and was worst I ever had. Can't believe they are well known for this dish. Mussels were old and nasty tasting, over cooked, and tomato broth was like V8 juice boiled and poured over the sea food. I would not recommend this place. This was the second time I've been here and both times were awful and outrageously expensive.

Excellent food and great service. Consistent on both. Always try to go and eat whenever is SF. Long time fan.

Gem. Just flew across country and had made this reservation. Went in tired. Was comforted by excellent service, great house Cabernet, a Caesar salad with a lighter very flavorful dressing, a wonderful seafood specialty dish with spinach and orzo on the bottom, and the scrumptious bread. Two of us shared our meal and we're beyond happy when leaving.

Fantastic seafood experience the Bay Area way. I was born and raised in the area but have lived away in Colorado for 25 years now, so it is always a treat to stop by Scoma's. Ciopino , crab, and staff are the best in the area and make me feel like I never left.

We were unable to make our reservation for Scoma's and I could not cancel on line. I contacted
opentable and let them know that we would not be there. I also called the restaurant and cancelled.

Loved the food and the service. The ambience was great. It truly lived up to its reputation.
Our waiter was this nice Chinese man who steered us to some delicious food and a great dessert.

WAY overpriced. I had (the server's) recommended shellfish stirfry, a $45 mistake with an unfortunate taste and overwhelmed with sauteed onions (!). My wife had the Petrale sole, a generous portion that we both judged utterly tasteless ($30). Oh, and I started with an $8 bowl of New England Clam Chowder, so laden with flour I could have stood a spoon up in it. All this and a beer for about $190 including tip. This experience was oh, so disappointing after having read very positive reviews elsewhere. I went back and checked that site-all the very negative reviews were in the last 3-4 months. Clearly something has gone terribly awry. My wife and I are big seafood fans and we have, individually or together, lived in California, New York City, and Florida. Scoma's didn't cut it in any way.

My family enjoyed the wine and food. The clam chowder was awesome but the main entrees were average. The service was good.
