Our Fisherman"s Wharf seafood restaurant is steeped in a family tradition of quality and service. Still family owned and operated, Scoma's opened in 1965, when brothers Al and Joe Scoma took over a six table coffee shop serving fishermen on the wharf. Using their mother's recipe collection, the Scoma brothers' humble cafe evolved over the years becoming the quintessential San Francisco dining destination it is today.
Two weeks ago the family went to Scoma's for our special treat of lazy man's cioppino which turned out to be a bowl of chopped fish.AWFUL AWFUL AWFUL
Both bowls had 2prawans 3scallops no crab,mussles,or clams, just a bowl full of fish.No longer a choice of regular cioppino or lazy mans. When asked where the clams, mussels, or crab we were told they didn't make it like that any more, well if that's the case GOODBYE!!!!! We are not paying $40.00 for a bowl of stewed fish...........We have told all our friends and regular customers and they agree scoma's use to have the best cioppino in san francisco. Now we are looking for a new place for our CIOPPINO...
Welcome TOURIST suckers to this old burned out restaurant...a favorite for everyone from OUT of town....great reputation ....among TOURISTS. Locals would not touch anything on the wharf except Buena Vista for Irish Coffee....
This restaurant was recommended by a local shop employee, when we could not get into our former favourite restuarant. Scoma's is now a must when we go to San Francisco. The food is amazing, I recommend the lump crab cakes. Reservations are a good idea. The wait staff are friendly and efficient.
We were there with some family and our two kids. After you get past Fisherman's Wharf and the Piers and grimy walkways you arrive to find the restuarant looking pretty nice. The staff was extremely nice especially with our two kids. The food was amazing. I recommend the Chiopino or the Calamari.
My family owns this restaurant and I think it is the best seafood EVER! Yes it's pricey but you pay for the food and the service. I would much rather take an hour drive to the city and eat there then go to NASTY Red Lobster! You don't know what good seafood is until you try Scoma's! RIP Uncle Al!
