We went to Scoma's in S.F. for my Son's birthday. We drove from Monterey to San Francisco Scomas because over the last 40 years, this place has always been a special place for my Family to celebrate Family celebrations. Today was no different, it was my Son's birthday. First of all, the service was absolutely outstanding. Our server recommended the Halibut as fresh. I ordered the Halibut and my Son ordered the "Whole" crab. The Halibut that I received was overcooked and dry. My Son's crab was served as overcooked crab parts, not a whole crab (I think it may have been equivalent to whole crab). His crab was so overcooked that the shell was super soft and none of the crab once taken from the shell maintained its form. It simply fell apart. He ate about 2/3's of the crab and left the rest.
My "Fresh" Halibut was overcooked and dry. When I reported this to our server, he asked me if I like my fish "Well done"? What is well-done fish? It's called overcooked. So I sent it back to be replaced. The replacement was just ok.
Note: In over 35 years I have never returned one item at Scoma's. Hence the title, "disappointed!" Scoma's has always had a history of not good food, but Great food. Not on this day.
On the bright side, my other Son had Waygu American style 8 oz, steak which was good!
