I went in 3pm alone, 2 girls in reception are not so friendly, maybe someone will enjoy their "attitude", but I don't. Lucky enough, the food and mature male waiters save this experience. Over-all, highly recommend. Location: it's easy to find with google map, but not sitting in the Main Street. Therefore, make it a unique and specially view. January... More

We sat at the bar and the service was good. Manhattan is $18, it was good but not great. The cold seafood appetizer for two at $29 consisted of 2 shrimp, 2 small oysters, 2 clams, and 4 crab claws that appeared to be previously frozen. It was ok but over priced. They cater to big spenders that buy $65... More

Been coming to Scoma's for years. Best seafood in the city. Love the atmosphere. Great wine list! Calamari, petrale, crab, and chowder to die for. A must stop for San Francisco dining.

The hype was too much to pass; so off we went to the most recommended place in the wharf - the wait was 45 minutes to an hour so we thought that was a good sign. We sat at the bar to have a glass a wine while waiting, eventually after waiting for a while we at the bar -... More

So, I am not a seafood enthusiast...however the restaurant modified a pasta dish to meet my needs - no issue / complaint from the waiter - he was easily able to accommodate. Most of the other people in our party had a seafood apps / entree and said it was really good! We had the salted, caramel, sea salt gelato... More

We had a party of six, walk-ins. We waited 45 minutes but it was worth it. Once seated we received excellent service. We did not wait long for food. Cioppino, Scallops & prawns with a terrific black rice side, beet salad, caprese and chx parma for our lone 'no water food' companion. We were all very pleased and recommend highly

We tried everything from lobster bisque soup to the sampler appetizer that had bacon wrapped scallops, excellent calamari, and crab cakes all of which was excellent!

Upon entering one feels the history and restaurant has that "old fashion" feel to it. Servers in white jackets and white tablecloth dining. Wife variety of seafood with an Italian flair. We were not rushed and the food was amazing. I enjoyed the Lazy Man's Cioppino, and my wife loved her Alaskan halibut.

This is old school Italian seafood. Awesome fresh seafood prepared perfectly. Great cocktails. The service? Absolutely amazing, our waiter, Salvator was well versed on the entire menu and wine list. Try the Pasta Diplomatic or the Cioppino. You'll love it!

Thank William B
