Old school "Rat Pack" feel...and that's a good thing!

Great food, simple food, from a time that was less complicated. Not overly spiced and seasoned, they really let the flavor and freshness of the seafood speak for itself. They've been around for 50 years and it's easy to see why. Wonderful service.

Old school charm; right in the middle of WF; excellent seafood dishes and wine list; great service. Restaurant and decor somewhat dated. Recommended by SF natives.

My husband and I had moved away from the Bay Area 8 years ago. So we thought it would be fun to spend the weekend in San Francisco to celebrate our 34th wedding anniversary. We had never eaten at Scoma's before, so I made a reservation about a month prior. We checked in at the hostess desk, and she confirmed... More

This restaurant can be found by looking for the signs on Jefferson Street. It is off the beaten path and well worth a visit. This is the only place we went back to for a second visit. We went early because we knew we would not get in without a long wait or even at all. The seafood and fish... More

Well worth the wait. Service was great and food was excellent. It was nice that you could put your name in and go walk around the Wharf, have a drink elsewhere and they text you when your table is ready. Would definitely go back again.

The classic San Francisco seafood restaurant right on the warf, surrounded by docks, fishing boats and sea gulls. Doesn't get any better or more authentic. Great seafood choices and an Italian flair. Make reservations & know the location or you'll miss it the 1st time there. Refreshing but still with a hint of Italianisque days. Enjoy...

Loved the food and the overall atmosphere. Clam chowder is yum! Almost always crowded, so reservation is a good idea
