What a great little French bistro! The owner was the waiter and was very sweet and receptive of my friends and I. His recommendations were stellar, and the food was delicious. Cheeses on our cheese platter were out of this world and the baguette with the fancy butter was fantastic. I had the steak and the flavors were amazing on the pallet. For dessert I had chocolate mousse, and even though there were three of us, I think I ate the whole thing. Highly recommended sweet little neighborhood place that has character and kindness.

Limited menu but beautifully prepared, imaginative classic Mediterranean food. It’s definitely a local spot despite its location on Bridgeway overlooking the ocean. Not to be missed

We have lived in the area for many years and never went to Scoma’s in Sausalito until yesterday. My husband and I enjoyed our meals very much. They have a terrific Caesar salad. I had the cioppino and my husband had a special of seared halibut with vegetables. He loved his dish and I thought the cioppino was tasty. They also have very good sourdough bread, no extra charge which is becoming more rare.

Great food consistent as always! Though I did note I was there to celebrate my husband’s birthday and sadly the waitress didn’t know that, so I had to ask again for a candle🥲
