Wow! If you're a seafood lover, then you need to try Scoma's. rated one of the best seafood restaurants in San Fran... there was no wait, service was fast & friendly. I believe i had the Cippino? which was a huge bowl of seafood in this tomato based soup... my gosh it was Delish! prices are a tad steep, but... More

For over 30 years, Scoma's has been my go-to San Francisco restaurant for entertaining guests. Outstanding Cioppino! Professional waiters who make fine suggestions. Good wine list. Great pier atmosphere. Always a winner.

We went there having been assured they were something of an institution. The place is certainly nicely located and the front of house staff pleasant - although why could the aperitif at the bar not be added to the main bill? The menu is outdated and in serious need of a modern look - just because it worked for years... More

Exceptional service at Scoma's at all level from table preparation, to busboys to waiters! We were there about 45 minutes before our reservation ( our function ended early) and would have ben happy to just wait in the bar but the staff went the extra yard and setup our table for ten in just 15 minutes! The waiter and staff... More

Scoma's quality has declined terribly. The Lobster tail entree has been replaced by four little guys. No more mixed veggies or penne pasta with the meal. No more crunchy crusty sourdough. Portions have decreased while prices keep going up. Restaurant personnel were unfriendly, unattentive, and seemingly dissatisfied with the way things are currently being run there. Al Scoma would be... More

Felt rushed. Waiter came my within nano-seconds of being seated. Didn't ask if we wanted a drink, wanted us to order our dinner before we even had a chance to look at menu. Same thing after meal - we practically had to beg for the dessert menu. The tuna one of us had was past well done - even though... More

We ate here at a last minute recommendation (working on the bridge to bridge cruise). Unbelievable good! First, our waiter (wish I knew they guys name) was a true - professional waiter. Recommended we have the Salmon w/ lobster ravioli. I'm not a huge Salmon guy....WOW! Really, Really good! didn't even know that it came with a small lobster tail.... More

I was looking forward to having a drink, and possibly an appetizer at the famous Scoma's. Sad to say, I was extremely disappointed in the "look down their nose" attitude from the staff. One staff member was following in between a friend of mine and myself, and was waving her hands behind my friend's back because she wasn't moving fast... More

Service great...seafood wonderful. Oysters to die for. Single-line caught swordfish yummmm! Pasta Diplomatic great & leaves nothing to be desired. Every time we come to Scott's makes us want to return.

When in San Francisco, go with seafood. On a referral from my boss, Scoma’s was the place to go. Situated in the wharf area, Scoma’s is tucked away from the street, almost secluded. They process the seafood on premises – cleaning, filleting, etc. You can watch them through a picture-glass window right next to the restaurant. The interior design is... More
