Scalo Ratings and Reviews
Have been here before and very much enjoyed it....maybe because it was Saturday, maybe they are getting too complacent, in any event we were most disappointed this visit. Service was poor, the waiter was not the least bit attentive, in fact he would look away when near or passing the table, had to waive him down which I never do, refill of wine (dinner, but he did not check back) brought out with one of the two coffees ordered after the meal....we didn't bother to ask for the other cup as we did not want to wait anylonger. The caesar salad was bland and thoughtless, the veal piccata entree arrived with the veal at the bottom of a bowl covered with pasta and 2 very very charred pieces of bread and a chunk of grilled lemon atop, not very appetizing, the other veal piccata entrée arrived exactly the same except one piece of very charred bread and the other untoasted, inconsistent. The squash soup was to die for...mmmm best part of the meal.
Scalo is reliably very good, and Thursday night was no exception. My only complaints were with the time from ordering until our salads were served - 20+ minutes! The Caprese salad was very good (especially the fresh mozzarella) though the tomatoes were not yet ripe.
My husband and I have been enjoying dining at Scalo for as long as it's been open, since we just live 5 blocks away. Usually the service is excellent. This night there was a big party upstairs, so those of us downstairs had slow service. The food is always great.
We were in Albuquerque for the balloon festival. Based on two pleasurable experiences last year we recommended Scalo to fellow RVers for dinner. All of the six new diners were very complementary on the taste, quality, service, and portion size. This visit exceeded our expectations!
Great location in Nob Hill. Nice vintage digs. In town visiting and made a reservation based on several locals' recommendations. Gracious host, sad and inattentive service, salad was great, pasta was 'meh'. Had to ask for silverware. If service had been better and a little more attention to detail paid, ambiance would have forgiven any misses on the food.
We lived in Albuquerque for 10 years, and every year we come back and visit for a week. Scalo's is always one of the places we have to eat at. They always have good food at good value. Plus, they have a good selection of reasonably priced wines. We love the way they cook their salmon, never dry, always perfect! We have never been disappointed with anything we have had.
