Will not be disappointed with your meal. Consistent, great quality & taste!
Outstanding service from Adrian and Bruce. Please thank them!
Good food, nice atmosphere, great service.
Excellent choice for great food and service. Natalie makes everyone feel valued and welcome. Mary is a great server.
Great service and excellent food as always. The pappardelle and mushroom and prosciutto pizza had wonderful flavors. Can’t wait to go again.
The food was out of this world!! A little pricey for the portions. Our server was nice but not very conversational. It was a great spot to suit many preferences.
While the service was very good. I felt that the server is a seasoned salesman. He kept trying to upsell. Good for him and his employer.
The Burrata needed help, a bit dry and chewy.
The dessert was ok. Not exceptional. We ordered tiramisu. Which was also pricey for what it was. $11.00.
Yes I knew coming in that it was a pricey establishment. But charging double digits for dessert should have been made with gold.
Muy buen restaurante italiano en el corazón de Union Square. Servicio amigable y platillos deliciosos
Wine list was really great and food is soo good!!
We used to eat there all the time this was our go to place. Things change no clams and Linguine. Oh well. What I had the Fussilli pasta was average. My wife Halibut was dry or over cooked with no flavor.
Natalie starts the evening with her beautiful welcoming smile. Bruce is the best server and the meal was outstanding! I highly recommend Scala’s to anyone who wants a wonderful meal an d dining experience!
I love Scala's for a special dinner. The olives are my favorite.
Dining at Scala's Bistro is always a wonderful and memorable experience. From the moment you walk in off of busy Powell street, you are greeted sincerely and made to feel very appreciative for selecting this restaurant to dine at. Bruce, our waiter, was very attentive and has a wonderful dry sense of humor. He is exceptional in his attention to your requests. For example, my wife loves her salmon very well done and it came exactly as she ordered it. The caesar salad is scrumptious as each individual leaf of romaine is coated with their delicious vinaigrette dressing. My butcher block steak was cooked to perfection, and it exploded with flavor. And save room for their delicious Bostini Cream Pie. And last, a very respectable wine list that is moderately priced. The Patz and Hall Pinot Noir was delicious!
Waiter is rude and environment is so noisy. The table is small. We couldn’t enjoy good conversation.
A+++ great food and great service from the bartender, to the host, to the waiter.
I am a frequent diner at Scala's and highly recommend the restaurant to anyone... visitor or resident.
The food is consistently ranging from "very good" to "excellent". The servers, especially at breakfast, are considerate, listen well and honor your presence... this is probably the main reason I dine here frequently. The managers are also warm, friendly and accommodating, even during their busiest hours. Given their close proximity to Union Square, and the fact that they are located within the Sir Francis Drake hotel, makes them a very popular choice to dine. I highly recommend making a reservation.
My fig and pancetta pizza was amazing! The juxtaposition of the salty ham and cheese with the beautiful sweet fig was delicious. Highly recommended!
Great service, awesome food
The food was great! Highly recommend the gnocchi.
Very good. Parpadelle with pork is a must try the short ribs wow and baby lettuce with pines-crusted goat cheese over a good medium body red wine plus servings are good enough to share. For Teo celebrating way to go. Bread not warm which s a little odd but they toasted a little bit for us (so good). No decanter for a good red wine which is weird compare to the wine selection in house.
Scala's Bistro used to be one of my favorite restaurants in San Francisco years ago when Jen Biesty was the chef. However it has been years since then and they have revamped their decor, menu and food. The food here is mediocre at best. Service here is less than mediocre. It is a shame that once a giant of a restaurant is now reduced to mediocrity.
Everything was great, check this place out!
Discovered this place 5 years ago when I was in San Francisco for a conference and went twice. When business brought me back, this was on my list and it did not disappoint. The roasted chicken and fusilli was incredible. My colleagues thanked me for helping them discover Scala’s as well. And yes...great wine list. Highly recommended!
We were a party of 7 who enjoyed our evening at Scala Bistro. The salad with bread, burrata, melon & prosciutto was delicious. Our party ordered ravioli, skirt steak special, pasta dishes, and the halibut. All were delicious, and prepared well. The service was outstanding. The hostess was very accommodating. We will be back.
We love to come to Scala's when we're in SF. The food is delicious and service is great.
Four of us came for dinner prior to the theater. We were seated promptly and served quickly with water. We shared the frito misto, which was delicious. 3 of us ordered pasta dishes which were considered ok but nothing striking. I had ordered the salmon which was overdone. Normally, I would have returned it but we were headed to the theater and had limited time.
Overall service was good. But the meal was mediocre.
Very disappointing experience. I’ve been at least 20 times and food was just ok, while service was solid in regards to attentiveness but they split a salad when we were not splitting, two salt grinders on table no pepper. Very expensive. Salad, burger, pizza and glass of red. $115.
The service and food were impeccable. We were seated at a lovely table by the window.
Our meal started with Oysters and cocktails. For dinner we had the radiatore and a side of shishedo peppers.
Everything was phenomenal. We will definitely go back and try more menu items.
My sister and I were here for a solemn occasion. We wanted a nice place close to the hotel. After looking at the menu for Scala’s and location, nice quaint dining, let’s give it a shot. It was a GREAT find. The food was excellent, we shared the short ribs (8 ounces of meat!) and each had an appetizer. Not only were we satisfied we were quite impressed. The staff was so friendly and helpful, knowledgeable......just made for a pleasant evening before heading home the next morning.
Great food, excellent service! Won't hesitate to visit again for great Italian food in the Bay area.
Our server was so kind and the food was incredible!
We had dinner with teen-age grandchildren here and all of us found plenty to enjoy. we were seated promptly when we arrived and appreciated the menu explanations from our waiter. Food was well prepared and presented. Nice ambiance.
As usual, another great meal at Scala's! Unfortunately, the evening had the fun taken away when our server dropped a bowl of tomoto sauce that flew all my brand new sportscoat. The manager offered a quick recovery and provided info to pay for thd drycleaning, but the damage was done.
Table of 14 near by made conversation impossible. AC not effective. I don't mind the inflated prices but ambience suffered.
Wonderful food (especially the pastas!)
Food was terrible. We were recommended by multiply people, read reviews, and everything seemed ok. We get all of our food, and it was terrible. Not sure if we just picked the worst things on the menu, or the chef was having an off day, but everything was seasoned horribly. The gnocchi was almost inedible.
dined with my husband while on vacation. The meal was very good . the service also was good, but the waiter was very soft spoken and very difficult to hear. Also a bit pricey for a $$ label.
We had a pleasant stop a Scala. The goat cheese salad was really good and the service was very friendly
The food and service were excellent.
The pasta was homemade.
The appetizer board had an excellent selection of meats including chicken pate.
The carpaccio and the gnocchi were tasty. The server was courteous. The noise level was high so conversation was a bit impeded but all in all, a good experience.
