Hidden Elegance

The entrance hides it's quiet elegance. You feel as though you are stepping back into time, a time with great, attentive service and good quality. We slipped in for lunch, escaping the crowds at Pier 39. It was quiet and yet full of guests. Our servers never let our water glasses go half... read more

This was recommended to me by a local. It is off the heavily touristed path of Fisherman's Wharf down a little alley/dock and on the pier. It has its own fish delivery station. It was very fresh and we went there around 3pm and didn't have to face the inevitable crowds or no tables available. We spent a very nice... More

This place was extremely crowded on the Friday night we visited. We were able to get two tables together to accommodate our large family. I thought the food and service were average, but the lively atmosphere was fun and the waterfront location was nice.

Scoma's know how to treat their guests. The wait staff knowledgeable, attentive, friendly and all together first class. The only thing better is the food. It is delicious and beautiful presented. I usually do not care for oysters but agreed to share an appetizer order of Crispy Fried Oysters with Sicilian Caper Aioli. Oh, my, they were good. We fought... More

Scoma's has been my go to restaurant in SF for seafood for over twenty years. Slipped a little last time but this visit __They're Back! Fabulous meals and did not dissapoint in any area. Service may have been a little slow but who cares in such a nice surroundings. All items ordered were as promised and delicious. Wife and sister-in-law... More

Hard to find but worth the effort. We had the crab louie salad which contains a rather generous portion of crab meat. A little tight in seating but then this also encourages one to have a conversation with one's neighbor.

The lobster bisque was fantastic. And who can resist awesome sour dough bread! We loved it so much, we went to the other location in Sausalito! Excellent service!

Scoma's is one of my favorite seafood restaurants in the Fisherman's Wharf area. I've gone there whenever I am in San Francisco for the past 50 years. They also have a unique French bread which no other restaurant has because they add their own touch to the dough before baking.

Ate here twice this last trip. First visit had the very fresh locally caught salmon. Excellent and perfectly cooked on a bed of sweet corn and crispy zucchini. Second visit the Crab Louie (old school portion). The bed of lettuce was fresh and crisp. The crab ample and worth the price ($55). White table cloths and a window side view... More
