Description: You don't get more San Francisco than Scala's, located just off the Powell Street cable car line, steps from Union Square. And with great location comes great responsibility: that's why we work hard to maintain our reputation as one of the city's most essential dining destinations by creating an atmosphere as sophisticated and inviting as the food we bring to the table.

It was a wonderful dinner. However, when we arrived, there was a bit of a problem. My problem, my mistake - I had clicked on NEXT Thursday, so our reservations were for the wrong day. This was a pre-show birthday dinner celebration. The Hostess and Maitre'd were wonderful and found a spectacular table for us. Our server exemplified helpful, warm and professional service and the food was good.

My mistake could have caused a very different birthday for my husband, but the warm service made it a wonderful start to a great evening.

Scala is a lovely and lively bistro. Recommended to have reservations. It is around the corner from Saks Fifth Avenue at Union Square and less than a block from the St. Francis Hotel. Our tasty Italian meal was tasty, innovative and eye-pleasing. The waiter we had was helpful with the menu explaining some of the entrees and perfectly attentive to us. It is in the lower level of a hotel, so the restroom is on the second level up, but there's an elevator, so this restaurant works fairly well for any one with accessibility needs. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here on a Sunday evening. Urbane, sophisticated, but not stuffy and the food was good, very good. Bon appetit!

We loved our dinner experience so much we returned for Breakfast a few days later.
Dinner was sublime. 3 adults & 2 teenagers all equally loved their dinner choice. The service was faultless & friendly. Delicious wines.

Breakfast was equally as enjoyable & the best coffee we'd had in SF.
