The restaurant is right on pier and tucked behind another building but has good signage and is easy to find. The service both at the bar and table was professional and knowledgeable but not friendly. The food was excellent. We started with the crab cocktail and lobster bisque. The second best bisque I've ever had (the best was in Maine).... More

We started out with fresh local crab and lobster bisque. Both were fantastic. My husband had the scallops over pasta which was good, but not great. I had the fresh halibut which was fantastic. It was everything fresh fish should be. We finished w a brownie, ice cream and sauce. The waitress was curt but knowledgable.

Located right on the Bay at Fisherman's Wharf with a great atmosphere and views of the fishing fleet. The food was very good, we started with the Clam Chowder followed by Mixed Seafood Grill, Hot Sampler for Two, and Salmon. Great location and we would return.

I adore cioppino but rarely have a chance to have it, since we don't live in the land of seafood. A family member, knowing we were going to be in San Francisco, recommended Scoma's and said that the cioppino was the best ever. She was right! The only thing that she left out is that one order of cioppino here... More

We spent 5 days in San Fran with our 14 year old grandson, and Scoma's was our favorite dining experience. The seafood that we ordered was fantastic! My salmon (grilled over a wood fire) was caught that day on the Nicky D fishing boat pointed out to me by our wait staff. My grandson said the scallops were "melt in... More

This was a very pricey restaurant, but I must say all of us, except for my daughter who has the shrimp risotto, thoroughly loved their choices. She did say it was good, but just not great. The never ending bread served at the table was so delicious. The waiter was very helpful and answered our questions. My other daughter had... More

Great location near Fisherman's Wharf but not touristy at all. Great food and the atmosphere. The restaurant is built on a pier surrounded by real fishing boats. Really outstanding food and atmosphere. Worth the trip!

I heard of this restaurant from my dental hygienist in Texas. She just raved about it, so two years ago my wife and I decided to try it and holy cow it was excellent. Well last week we came back to San Francisco with our daughters and mother in law and this was the first meal we had in San... More

We came here at the suggestion of some friends. We booked a month in advance and requested a nice table by the window as we were going to celebrate our anniversary. We were seated away from the window in the middle by the kitchen, ugh! It was loud and we were forgotten about. Service was super slow. We ordered the... More

I went here with my grandmother in 1987 and wanted to go there with my hubby. It is still a very nice restaurant and the food was amazing! Even after traveling around the world since 1987 and having gone to many fine restaurants, I would go here again. It is a classic SanFran institution that still performs!
