Good food, quaint location but crowded...

Located in Fisherman's Wharf, this is supposed to be an institution. The location is certainly quaint and iconic. The bartender mixes a great drink while you wait.

Food was fresh, well prepared and service couldn't have been better. Our table was ready on time and had a view of the pier.

We visited this place for dinner and in search of some good sea food. It is a family dining style restaurant and seems to be popular with the locals. The waiters were experienced and looked like they worked at the place for decades! The crab and shrimp dishes we tasted were good. On average the price if between $25-$35 per... More

Light and delicate and almost sweet. wow! The clam chowder was boston style and the perfect starter. My hubby had petrole, which had also... More

I wish I lived closer, but a trip to SF would not be complete without a trip to Scoma's. It is a real treat. Wonderful seafood menu, excellent service, first rate restaurant. Sometimes the wait can be a while, but it is worth it! I always feel like I have been pampered there. If you want something special, no problem,... More

Scoma's was recommended and we went even though it was a 90 minute wait. After about 30 minutes we came back found seats at the bar and ordered some appetizers while waiting for our table. Everything is a little pricey in SF and Scoma's doesnt buck the trend. $300 for 3 people with appetizers and drinks and no desserts. Food... More

The service and food were impeccable. Everything was cooked to perfection. Ambiance was also wonderful, while this was our first time I wished we had requested more of a mountain / bay view. But non the less We will return to Scoma's on our next San Francisco.

The restaurant is a little pricier than the others on the Wharf, but it's also one of the better restaurants. The clam chowder was amazing! We also had great service!

Went to Scoma's on recommendation of a friend and was not disappointed! First of all, they allowed us in for a late dinner (we arrived after Alcatraz night tour) which is difficult to find in San Fran. Secondly, our waiter was excellent, and gave helpful suggestions which I always appreciate. I had the crab cakes to start then amazing melt... More
