I eat at La Scala often but was very disappointed tonight. We had to wait at least 20 minutes after tour reservation time to be seated. It took an unusually long time to have our order taken. Only two of the three appetizers arrived at the appropriate time and the soup was cold. The third appetizer came out with the main course. The main courses arrived well before the appetizers were finished so half of them were wasted . I suggested the restaurant and was really embarrassed. This was not the service and experience I expected. Our waiter didn't seem to care and offered a bunch of excuses.

Our reservation was for 8pm. It took almost an hour to be seated. When I asked about our table at 8:25pm, the maitre d' said, "Well, no one is paying up..." and then shrugged his shoulders, and turned away to greet other people entering. And that was it. As returning customers, we were really disappointed with the level of service. I'd hesitate recommending La Scala to friends based on this experience.

Four of us for an anniversary dinner.
Dry,stale, cold bread
Waitress takes the order and disappears
Salty main course that could not be eaten
Overcooked fish
Scaloppine so thin and tiny it could blow off the plate
We had to ask a food server to please find our waitress to tell her about the food. We sat with our food for about 5 minutes until she and then the manager came over........with a scowl and attitude

This is not the standard of Jean Leon's great creation and tradition
Do you think that we should go back?

Great all around! We'd definitely go again, and try more of their offerings!
La Scala's decor was deep red and with many booths, which reminded me of older Italian restaurants in New York City. Fitting, as this place has a lot of history. The ambiance was delightfully quiet, which made it easier to hear. (There was a very large party, and we didn't hear them until they gave a cheer at the end of their meal. We also saw several young children at other tables, but didn't hear them.)
The lighting is a bit dark, and many people used the flashlight function on their phones to read their menu.
Dinner was fantastic and plentiful (see the menu link above). We had a salads (Jean Leon Chopped & Caesar) , a pasta (Fettuccine Boscaiola, with Gluten Free Spaghetti), a secudi (Pollo ala Romana), and a dolce (flourless chocolate torte with ice cream, a daily special). Everything was delicious. Our waiter, Angel, was attentive and helpful. We were celebrating a birthday, and he took care of everything we needed.
We'd definitely go again, and try more of their offerings!
PS: Parking is easy. There is a city garage across the street that offer's 2 hours of free parking. When you come up the elevator to the street, La Scala is directly across.

This restaurant was on my must-do list on my first trip to the area. Robert Wagner mentions it in his book as a favorite of himself and Natalie Wood, and I just had to see for myself. I pictured the glamour days of Beverly Hills as I enjoyed the ambiance and the wonderful meal.

Wonderful, classy, old school restaurant. Had dinner here, and due to circumstances ended up back for lunch the next day! Quaint & quiet inside for dinner. Nice outdoor patio seating for lunch the next day... Chopped salad wonderful as advertised. Spaghetti Cognac was silky and flavorful. The crab cakes were superb! Spaghetti and meatball (Th&F) were very good.

Even though they got our reservation wrong ( I think it was opentable's fault, they seated us and I was surprised that the place was not busy.
Food was good, service was good. I guess they do a bigger lunch business. We come here often as my partner loves the salads

Server brought wrong meal. Took 20 minutes to cook correct meal. Our friend and I finished our meal before my wife was served. Never did the server apologize for the mixup or delay. Never offered any thing while my wife awaited her meal. Brought the check and again said nothing. We eat out 4-6 times a week. We know what service should be. In restaurants We otherwise frequent we would have had our meal compt or at least offered a desert for the restaurant's mistake and our inconvenience. We didn't come for a free meal or free desert and didn't ask for same. That's not the point. The point is when the meal has to be returned because the server or kitchen made the mistake the establishment should show some concern and empathy for the customer. At least apologize for the mixup made by the restaurant. We dined on Saturday @ 6:30. Why would we want to come back.

I usually like La Scala, but when we came as a party of four and one of my girlfriends didn't like the Fettuccine Alfredo (it wasn't great and actually had a strange taste to it), the waiter kindly informed us they would still have to charge for the dish even if my friend ordered something else. He then said if we insisted he could try to get the manager but he made it sound like it would be an uphill battle. My girlfriend didn't want to make a fuss even though the entire dish was left uneaten. She ate bread for dinner. Later on, when waiter was picking up our credit card, he picked up the uneaten Fettuccine dish and asked if we wanted it packed up to go! Uh....no....not really....

Hey I love the booths, I love the tradition, I love the chopped salad, but that is poor customer service.....sorry to write this, coz I've always loved La Scala....just very surprised they don't take a dish back if it's not good!

It has been awhile since we did not have to wait for a table even with a reservation.
We were in the first booth on the right side of the restaurant which was perfect for
people watching, etc. Our waiter Joshua was fantastic. He took time to explain the
dishes and did not rush us. The food, as usual, was very good.

We will definitely go there again.
