Quiet setting with great view of the scenery right on Fisherman's Wharf. White Tablecloth yet casual attire is ok. Get the Crab Louis Salad as an appetizer and split it. It's awesome. Fresh sourdough bread is placed on the table and refilled throughout the meal. The shellfish saute is great as well. Good selection - if you don't like seafood... More

We have been going to Scomas since 1990; every time we are in San Francisco. However, our most recent visit is likely our last. The food was only passable and the service was terrible. We actually ask for our check and left after our appetizers. Certainly no need to pay top dollar for such mediocrity in a food city like... More

Some friends suggested this would be a good choice for fresh seafood, and better atmosphere than Fisherman's Wharf. Well, they were 100% accurate. We really enjoyed our generous portions, done perfectly. A little pricey, but worth it.

I love seafood so of course I had to go to Fisherman's Warf on my recent trip to San Francisco. The clam chowder lived up to it's rep[utation and was excellent. Better than some I had in Boston! We just went for the clam chowder and a cold drink for a late lunch. I ordered a salad and the waiter... More

My hubby had researched this place on route to San Fran and could only get us a late reservation. This worked out well for us as we were travelling from the UK and this allowed us to rest for a hour or so before we had dinner. When we arrived, it was really busy which I thought was a good... More

We went to this restaurant at tje suggestion of our tour guide. She told us it was her favorite on the wharf and we would really like it. Well I have to say, it was an interesting experience. We walked in and were told the wait time would be 10 minutes. We sat at the bar to wait and noticed... More

I thoughts Scoma's was a fine restaurant. The selection and staff I felt was less than I expected. The food was just alright and the portion was a bit sparing. They were fine with the overall experience, though they could have done much better. The restaurant is very much worth visiting and I would like to visit others in this... More

The restaurant is right on the pier, all his position by saying that here the freshest fish. Local very fond of this place, on this table is better to reserve in advance. The cost - about $ 70 per person. I realy like this place!
