The food itself was pretty tasty, but just offensively overpriced for what it is
Amazing pizza and salad! Service was perfect!
Feels very San Francisco. Centrally located. Friendly staff. Good food for the dollar. Decorations are really historical and interesting!
We paid 20 dollars for meat balls that were chewy. The ravioli was good but also very pricey. Wouldn't go back. Also, they never asked if I want Parmesan and it's an Italian restaurant!
Service was fast. Meal was delicious and of adequate quantity. Its was a bit loud inside though. Price was good value.
Service was excellent, throughout. Food was simply prepared, and was reasonably tasty. Several guests ordered the whole fish, and it was fresh. We could have done a better job selecting the wines.
I have never had a bad meal at this restaurant. Bruce is a fantastic waiter!!
Great service. The mussles are terrific. Wonderful desserts.
I will return again.
Great dinner. Terrific waiter.
Awesome Italian restaurant I’ve ever visited. Reasonable price, comfortable services, sophisticated facilities.
Excellent as usual.
The Caesar salad with kale was a fun and healthy version of a classic. The octopus appetizer didn't really live up to the server's recommendation. Both pasta dishes were flavorful but a bit salty. The restaurant is loud but convenient to the Union Square area. Service was great from the front of the house to the server and busser.
Great spot, warm staff, much enjoyed!
Great place for kids
Service was attentive. Food portions are on the small side. Ambiance genteel. Drinks costly. Wonderful dessert for a birthday gathering.
Great service, ambience and meal. Killer meatballs appetizers.
Very busy bistro in union square. Food was good but a little overpriced.
Drinks service was slow.
Food was amazing all around. Wine to appetizers to main dish. I ordered the special - branzino. Best I’ve ever had. Really great atmosphere and service as well. Excellent and will be back.
Restaurant NOT what it was in the past. Greeting indifferemnt, restaurant appears in need of good cleaning. Host escorted us to table, left with no greeting or “ Enjoy”. Waiter confusing, Food ok, not worth the $ 112 price. Host indifferent upon departure. Restaurant not what it was as a Kimpton operation. Will not recommend.
Read good reviews. We had reservations and got there a bit early. The nice ladies made sure we got seated ASAP and had a nice table. We were promptly greeted by server and orders were taken. Service was excellent, attentive but not overly hovering. The food was OK for the price. Didn’t felt it was anything to create a WOW factor. A dinner for two with an appetizer, two drinks and two entree set us back $125. Hmmm. Seems steep, for just good ambiance and EXCELLENT service.
The service was impeccable and the food delicious. As a San Franciscan, always bypassed the restaurant because it is in the hotel. Although it is pricey, the classic Italian menu was authentic, fresh, and terrific. I will definitely return.
I love their dinners but have been coming lately for lunch when I'm going to a play in the downtown area. It's a nice and quiet venue with a great view of the cable cars climbing up and down Powell Street. (How much more San Francisco can it get?) Try their French toast. Yummy.
We had an very good meal and the service was excellent. The ribs were on the dry side and the vanilla gelato was off and mango-passion fruit gelato was so tart. Our server, Sarah, was the best. Thanks for a good time!
Great food, pity our waiter was pushy and obnoxious
Food outstanding and exceptional service!
Modest restaurant but not extraordinary. Avoid if you want to impress.
Always a safe choice for friends getogether in the city. Timing was perfect so there was not a large lunch crowd left by 1:15 pm .
Our waiter was very accommodating and attentive to our needs ... never felt rushed during the entire meal .
Food was fresh and appetizing ( we all ate different salads and one ordered the fusilli pasta dish).
All in all , ambiance was quiet and we were able to carry on good conversation with each other.
I have eaten often at Scala’s and have yet to be disappointed , so I do recommend this restaurant especially during the non-peak hours for lunch or dinner both for its central location , good bar and pleasing menu choices !
Host was a bit rude about seating me in an empty restaurant when my guest was only blocks away. Food and waiter was great.
We both had linguine and clams and shared a little gem salad. Our waiter was great, but the best thing was when the bartender came to our table with my friend’s purse that she accidentally left at the bar! That was special!!
We very much enjoyed our dinner at Scala's Bistro. The service was excellent and the food delicious, especially the tenderloin carpaccio.
Three of us are SF and Bay area residents for over 60 years, but have never been to Scala's as it is a tourist restaurant, so we finally tried it because it is so close to the theater area. Of course, restaurant is perfect location, but food is just average and ok but service is excellent. Salad, calamari, ravioli, mussels all ok, but nothing exceptional. Glad we got this off our bucket list.
We were a group of 6 and appreciated the quiet corner table in the bar area.
The noise level in this restaurant was loud. Our meal was good, the service was average.
Jeremy was our server thus past Friday evening! Provided good and quick service!
Food, drink and dessert delicious!
The restaurant was directly across the street from our hotel.
We ate there the night we arrived and loved it. Being Italian and coming from New York makes that a very big compliment. Our waiter was charming and all of the staff was so helpful.
Therefore we enjoyed another meal there on our final night. We were not disappointed!
Little on the pricey side but then again you are in middle of SF tourist zone. Excellent service, delish food. Pork sugo was a tad too salty for me though.
Delicious dinner with friends. Specials of the day were exceptional. Service was excellent. Will definitely be back.
We had a wonderful time
Very good food
The price of the wine were a little high
