Often times I’ll be trying to find the cheapest and most delicious places in San Francisco to eat. This entry however, goes against that outlook, because Scoma’s is definitely not cheap, however it does adhere very well to the later part of my usual requirements. Scoma’s has a great location overlooking the bay. They even have a virtual tour of the premises on their website here. Be sure to check out the “AutoDrive” feature that automatically takes you in and around the restaurant.
I wasn’t quite sure what to order when I first sat down, I was too entranced by all the famous people that had their pictures adorned on the walls. Once I had got past the setting, I took a deeper look at the menu. Now, I love clam chowder, but I didn’t want to get something so simple at a restaurant so elegant. I decided instead on the Lobster Ravioli. I’m glad I decided to get something I normally wouldn’t, because it was no less than spectacular. Considering the pricing at Scoma’s, each and every plate should be up to par with mine. I had a cup of clam chowder as an appetizer and I believe it lived up to the pricing as well. The portions were a great size. Occasionally restaurants and in particular the fancier ones like to short you on food to better their presentation.Luckily, they make sure you won’t go hungry Scoma’s! I was full of the lobster ravioli before I could see the bottom of the plate.
I would have to say Scoma’s is one of the best seafood restaurants I’ve been to so far in San Francisco. If it’s a nice day and you’ve got the money, I would recommend you check out this famous San Francisco landmark.
