Great food as always. Been a long time since last visit, the food is still good, friendly staff, fun and casual setting. The inside has changed to feel more open. The daily special is a great way to attract returning visits and good deal. $17.99...for a lobster meal on Monday!! Can’t beat this price.More

If you are staying anywhere near the airport this is a great place to stop for lunch. Food is excellent, Service is quick, but be warned the parking can be a real issue. The high price and parking are what keep me from giving it...5 stars, but I still go there every other month when in town.More

This place is all about lobster, as the name implies. Great variety of full lobster dinners or lobster rolls. Love that they have both the mayo based and butter (naked) lobster rolls, plus one with avocado and bacon! You order via QR code at the...table and then the server brings it to you. Very easy casual place. Note it's in a strange warehouse area, so don't get concerned that you must be lost- it's in an odd location, but is a great casual place.More

During our hotel stay near the SF waterfront we were searching the internet to find a good seafood spot! Looks like we found a “great” seafood spot. Ordering was easy! from your numbered table you scan the QR code and thee you go! Order by...phone on the menu ( or look what other folk’s tables), and someone from inside delivers to your table. We had the lobster chowder, lobster plate, bucket of shrimp, and Arnold Palmer Ice Tea, and a coke. Awesome meal! We are coming back!!!!More

This is walking distance from the Marriott, the Westin or the Aloft. It’s a local restaurant with loads of tables indoors and outdoors. Seat yourself and order off a menu with food delivered to that table. It’s really expensive for what you get. One taco...was $12 and if you got lobster or crab it was more. A taco platter which is about 1/4 cup of coleslaw, some fries and 3 tacos were a better deal but still really expensive for tacos. The food was tasty. Neither great nor poor just pleasant. Probably one of the better options in the area but definitely not value.More

Reviewed October 26, 2021

I brought clients there for my first visit. The location is closer to a cheap Chuck-E-Cheese restaurant than an expensive seafood place. Service was OK at best with slow delivery that led to all of our lobsters being served at room temperature. Mine was dry....To compliment lobster, they provided oily potato chips. As a large importer of lobsters, I suspect that they salvage sick or dead lobsters from their shipments. This place will NOT impress business clients. The high ratings are likely due to the low cost, but Scoma's in SF is more of a dining experience. So too are the many other seafood places up and down the San Francisco Peninsula. Lobster is very easy to cook at home. I would focus my interest on doing just that, with a fine wine that is not marked up a few hundred percent.More
