We had read a lot of reviews and were not disappointed in the slightest. Eating at the bar or the window was not a problem for us as the place was rammed at midday after opening at 11. Portion sizes are silly big but very tasty and hearty. Clam linguine (I forget the proper name) and half lb crab salad... More

Went there our first night we had friends recommend us. Great food, needs to be a little updated and tables would be a lot nicer if they were a little further apart we felt like we were eating with strangers at our table. Food was really good we had the whole lobster it was stuffed excellent !

Very close to the pier and a little haven to escape the crowds of Pier 39. Need to book as it gets very busy. You can eat at the bar though and that is unreserved. Relaxed, chilled atmosphere. Fantastic food. Excellent!

I found the place to be unfussy and the food to be good. It seems that they want you to leave if you're not ordering desert as the bill arrived without it being requested. You could call that efficient, I suppose....! The food was good and tasty. Price I do not find upsetting, 30-50 for a good main course is... More

After a long day driving from San Francisco with multiple stop offs we'd built up an appetite for some good food. Venturing out of the hotel a short walk away was Fishermans Wharf. I was instantly drawn to Scoma's but was made to walk to the end of the wharf to make sure nothing else took my fancy. Being a... More

Had a great meal here would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting SF. We had about a 30 min wait for a table so would recommend booking in advance.

I would recommend this restaurant. We like the atmosphere and the location. On this trip i was disappointed in the meal I selected. I had the Wild Alaskan Halibut and it really didn't have much flavor. And it appeared to have been broiled so the top of it was a bit hard/tough. However, the lobster bisque was delicious. And my...

We totally enjoyed scomas! Worth the wait! Book a table if you can and if not then try on the day as they will squeeze you in- you will just have to have a drink at the bar! Food was incredible! My second visit & my husbands first! They don't disappoint! The French waiter who served us was so friendly!!!... More
