Food was below average. One meal was returned and one other out of four was tasteless. $16 for a salad that could be eaten in a few bites. At least the returned meal was removed from the bill.

The waiter i had was horrible - i knew he was a bad and should have moved my table- i was sitting for 20 min - he never came over to take a drink order - i eventually walked over to the bar to get it myself; he never came back to take our dinner order and i had to walk over to maitre d for help. He ended up taking our order. I eat there at least once a week and love the restaurant

Met a girlfriend for lunch. I had a wonderful Cobb Salad and she had the Tuna Poke. Both were great. We sat outdoors and enjoyed the somewhat sunny day. The staff were attentive. Overall we had a nice lunch and a very nice time.

Our waiter was professional, generous, knowledgable - he made a great evening even better. The food was surprisingly special since this is a place I was unfamiliar with. Easy comfy booths. Nice wine. Pasta was a pleasure. GO!

Brought a friend who had not been here before and she loved it!
Food (brick pressed chicken) was excellent as always. It was
much noisier than usual. Even sitting outside it was noisy.

Had a nice outdoor table but we waited a very long time before someone came over, bread was stale, the rest of the food was decent. When we left we passed a nearby Italian restaurant which had a long line and realized we should have gone there.

I prefer the salad at La Scala. It's a lot overpriced just cause its in Beverly Hills. They need to give customers more value!

Very nice atmosphere. Waiter was very attentive. I go to this restaurant often and always enjoy it. Employees are very nice. At this particular lunch, my guest ordered the lunch special salad and she didn't care for it much. I had a salad, too, which was good. No big deal. I'll go back again.

Cafeteria level food. Our server was doing double duty as a bartender and waiter concurrently. He was overwhelmed and food came out staggered and haphazardly. Not worth going to this
restaurant. It is NOT worth your time or money. Very disappointing!!
