The portions they provide and the service that the food comes with is very good, though the prices are still a bit too high given what you receive.

Food and ambiance quite delightful, although could be considered a bit pricey.
The seafood mix was yummy as was the Carneros chardonay.

Well, you pay crazy prices for a Fisherman's Wharf restaurant long past its prime. Like Aliotos, also in the wharf area, Scoma's knows they have the tourists trapped because tourists are typically idiots. There are no shortages of good - great restaurants in SF, even in the Fisherman's wharf area. But if you must, and are willing to pay those prices for very average food fare, then the views and atmosphere are worthwhile. Personally, I'd go for happy hour, couple of drinks and a shrimp cocktail, enjoy the view, and go elsewhere for dinner. .

Scoma's was advised by our hotel concierge as a good seafood restaurant in the Fishermans Wharf. Fish was fresh and tasty. It was a nice surprise.

This restaurant is almost a hidden gem being nestled back on a pier in Fisherman's Warf. Don't let the outside fool you! It may look like a normal restaurant but when you walk in you almost feel like you've taken a trip back in time to when service meant something. There are waiters with white coats and black pants and linen on the tables. The bar is dark wood and massive like you would see in an old gangster movie.

You don't have to ask for a glass of water or wait for someone to notice you sat down. This place is all about service. Our waiter Joey was amazing! From the wonderful sourdough bread to the last bite of dessert it was delectable! We ordered grilled salmon, swordfish, steamed mussels in drawn butter, and fresh steamed asparagus. Fresh and delicious is all I can say!

This restaurant is priced on the higher side so it's not a place to bring the kiddos unless you want to fork out the bucks. Save this one for some quality adult time and give yourself plenty of time. You may have to wait to get in especially on the weekends but definitely worth it. Tables are positioned by close as they try to maximize space so don't expect a quiet little dinner but do expect it to be awesome! Great atmosphere and service you will remember!
