Since 1995, Scala's Bistro has garnered a reputation for classic, elegant dining. Warm, earth tones, original murals, beaded bistro lamps, and rich, mahogany booths evoke a dramatic Old World café. Fresh, innovative, Italian and Mediterranean-inspired dishes enhance the Scala’s menu while continuing to pay homage to the old Scala’s favorites.

We came for a quiet evening after a busy business trip, and enjoyed our dinner and ambiance. We got the great table we requested and had excellent service, nice meal, and could walk back to the Union Square hotel we were in. Wonderful!

The food is delish. It was a bit noisy, but overall great place.

Disappointing at best.

I’m assuming this is a California thing next w to cut costs that Saturday is now brunch with an extremely limited menu.

I grew up in a San Francisco where brunch was a big Sunday thing. Paying over $100 for brunch for two does not cut it with me.

Very noisy and cold if seated in line with the door.

I love Scala’s! It is casual old school San Francisco with great food. I have been many times and it is always terrific. A San Francisco’s standard

Scala’s is a long time favorite. This time was just ok...food and service and wine. Acceptable, but not up to my other experiences here.

Good restaurant for a quick meal before the theater. Loved that they have a decent wine by the glass program since I drink mostly red and European and my friend is a Prosecco girl. Food was good but nothing special. Service was good and the server was attentive. I would do a repeat performance for sure!

We dine often at Scala's as our favorite restaurant on Union Square. We didn't realize the Sunday afternoon menu is brunch and we didn't desire breakfast food at 3:30 PM. We ordered delicious soup and shared a Mushroom Pizza showing ingredients Garlic confit, crescenza cheese, prosciutto & arugula, and we requested added red sauce (barely detectable). Unfortunately, it was doused with vinegar and the taste was overbearing. It was the first time we didn't enjoy an entree and I like good vinegar but my hubby isn't a fan. Our nice waiter seems surprised the pizza had vinegar which made me wonder if it was a fluke?
