Great dining SF style

Best meal we've had since Rome. Even though it was crowded because of Super Bowl weekend the reservation we made was kept and on time. Our server Salvador was very accommodating and a delight. The organic black rice was an amazing treat. The seafood was the freshest we had on the trip.

Our favourite SF restaurant even took reservations!!! ( maybe due to Super Bowl being in town?). We like it ... Keep doing it. The clam chowder beats out our sampling of over 60 chowders on the east coast. The roasted ( but messy) crab was fantastic and a go to for next time. Despite the super bowl crush, the ladies...

Scoma’s restaurant is tucked away, down by Fisherman’s Wharf. There are signposts to it though, just follow them, even though it looks like you’re going round the back of the restaurant. A table wasn’t immediately ready for us, so we had a cocktail at the bar, these were very strong. We then were shown to our table, overlooking the water.... More

Exceptional service and to die for food in a stunning location. Went on a Friday and was surprised it wasn't as packed as I expected. The town of Sausalito is charming with so much to look at. Take a gander and get some delish food!

We had a recommendation to eat at Scoma's from a friend in Oklahoma. Then when we told locals that we had a reservation to eat there, they could not say enough about how great it is. They said it was the best sea food around. The seared tuna was so fantastic! They were right! Eat the lobster bisque too, but... More

Went there for dinner this week. It was busy but not frantic. The location (Fishermans Wharf), food, atmosphere and service all deserve the 5 star rating. Enjoy

The sea food there was quite fresh, but the crab cake we ordered was not good - overly priced and tasted lower than the average. The wines there was overly priced.
