I had a quick 2 day business trip to San Fran last week and our group had dinner at Scoma's Pier 47. They are not kidding when they say, it was swimming yesterday. Fresh, Fresh = Best. Great Wine selection and I don't have to tell you from where. Service was friendly and superb. Moderately priced for what you get.... More

Scomas is an institution to appreciate and perhaps visit once. The space is uncomfortably crowded which is part of the experience. Getting jostled by waiters happens constantly. Food is ok but not great. I prefer Franciscan Crab just a few blocks away- better views, better food, better service

This quaint little restaurant was a huge surprise. Upon entry it seems very small and simple, but my expectations were far exceeded. The food was some of the best seafood I've ever had and the coleslaw was defininthe BEST I've ever had. Great wine list. The staff was nice enough, but did not compare with the food.

The fish entree was served on a bed of half cooked black rice and chewy vegetables exposed the incompetence of the chef totally. The uncomfortable seatings made the pricing of the food at this resturant outrageous. Seafood lovers should go to the Oyster Hog at the Ferry on Market street.

When the flavor matches what the waiter says it will be, you have found a winner! Service, Service, and Taste, Taste, it is fantastic. Went twice in two days because everything is fresh, served hot, and the best. Worth the price!!

If you ever visit San Francisco, then you MUST find and eat at Scoma's. A little off the beaten path, Scoma's is an oldie that has beat all odds. Tucked down an alley and at the end of a pier, Scoma's serves some of the freshest and finest seafood in San Francisco. This is my 3rd trip to San Francisco... More

When we lived in San Francisco, this was always our go to place. Seemed to be the favorite place of locals. Food was excellent and service was tops. Be prepared for a long wait if you come after 5pm.
