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.

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!

Met our nephew who was in town on college break.
Had an ‘ok’ lunch but I learned my lesson as I thought the lunch menu during the week would include Saturday as well and that the brunch menu was only reserved for Sunday.
Needless to say, that at 2:45 on a Saturday, we were not looking for brunch. My mistake but remember this if you are looking for a restaurant for lunch on a weekend in the Union Square neighborhood.

Scala’s Bistro was once upon a time a find dining establishment. I just don’t understand why management would turn it into a coffee shop. I will never eat there again.

During the JPM conference Scalia's can get very busy. We had booked our table weeks ahead (5:15pm), arrived on time, but were soon met by a surly waiter who immediately told us that we needed to vacate the table as soon as possible because it was booked again 90 minutes later or so. He was inpatient when we ordered, gave us a hard time when we asked for an ice cooler for our wine, and on several other occasions made us feel completely unwelcome. To make matters worse, his attention to details was lacking, though the other support staff (non-waiters) tried to help (replacing silver, bread). Plates were removed from table while people were still eating, ridiculous. Because of their proximity to the Westin and Union Square, I'm sure they will always be full during JPM, however, if this behavior is repeated I'm certain their patrons will choose another restaurant during other non-conference times. Wake up, Scalia's. You are nothing special and if you treat your patrons this way you will be certain to fail over the long-term. Waiter was ~55-60 y.o., 5' 10" or so, white, thinning grey hair, stocky, with big frown on his face. Avoid.

Scala's is not as good as it used to be, overpriced and the noise-level is over the top LOUD! Will not return.
