Scoma’s is one of those places that out-of-town folks would tell me about and recommend me to visit. As a local, I don’t always frequent places that others visiting recommend because, frankly, what do they know? I have lived here practically since forever, and they are here for only one week, maybe two weeks, tops. Sheesh. Lol. But I have wanted to go to Scoma’s for a long while because this place seems like such an institution and because of the wonderful feedbacks from tourists and out-of-town folks and even some locals. So yes, we tried it late last year. And yes, I am late about writing this because things just kept coming up, so I just continue to bump this down. I digress. There are two Scoma’s. One at Fisherman’s Wharf and one in Sausalito. We went to the one in Sausalito.
Scoma’s in Sausalito is a cute place with a wonderful view. To get to the best tables with a water view, you walked through the galley (kitchen) where all the staff is busy getting your orders filled, so just be careful as they hurried about as you walked through. The food is a tad on the expensive side as this is a seafood restaurant and built on their reputation, but the food is good on this dining experience. We like our clam chowder though to be perfectly honest, you can get about the same at Boudin and that comes in a sour dough bowl. Anyway, the Crab appetizer was great simply because they gave us so much crab but I don’t usually eat crab so it was a big deal. And the Cioppino was excellent. Love the Cioppino. The broth, the seafood, everything. :)
Here are some pictures of that dining experience.
