The menu prices seemed pretty high for the food offered, but the atmosphere and view there mitigates the prices a bit? The bar atmosphere was very friendly and seemed to have a lot of local flavor to it...I ordered their seafood pasta, and it was good but not great...on a later occasion I tried their Petrel sole and it was...

What a great place. Right on fisherman's wharf with views of the bay we had a delicious seafood platter served by a helpful and friendly waitress. Hands down the best cannolis ever. Not to be missed.

We managed to get a seat outside. The restaurant is located on the main road in Sausalito. It is built on a pier, albeit a short one, If you manage to sit outside some of your table may get a nice view of the bay. One half of the table will be looking at the road. Inside the decor is... More

Scoma's reputation may have preceded them in bygone days, but, for the traveler who has his choice of restaurants, and bases his decision on great food, customer service, and bang for the buck, go elsewhere. We had a mediocre dining experience in April 2016, (waited way too long for a table which was "reserved" weeks in advance, food was just... More

My husband and I had an early dinner at Scoma's on Saturday, August 27, 2016. We started with drinks at the bar and a short wait for a table. We then moved to a table with a view of the docks. We started with clam chowder. Delicious! My husband ordered Pacific Black Cod and I had Linguini Con Vongole. Again,... More

Headed up to Saulsalito after a day in the city. Wanted some seafood and it was great. My swordfish piccata was great. My friend had crab spaghetti. Our waiters were great. Checked on us often. Great restaurant.

Great seafood and service. The Tiramisu for dessert was fabulous! They text you when your table is ready which I think is a really nice service.

But one of the best seafood places if not THE BEST on the wharf. And one of the few places you can get abalone. Service is good. Food just like it's always been since as long as I can remember...a lot of years. Bustling, and energetic atmosphere

We stopped here for lunch before the Alcatraz tour, after being recommended by several lots of people and also some reviews. From the outside it doesn't look much, inside its very elegant and bustling and the food smells fantastic. As we only wanted a quick bite to eat we sat in the bar area, there were lots of people waiting... More
