Excellent array of food on menu. First class service. View from the terrace is stunning. Book a table close to the front with uninterrupted views of the lake, city and mountains.

The scala, sitting in site or out site (even better), at brunch (on Sundays), (business) lunch or for the dinner you will be served with is stunning and so tasteful. The team in the kitchen serves you such a creative and well-balanced meal from amuse bouche to the dessert. I recommend for the dinner to combine it with a great... More

Now, let me begin by saying that the trip up to this incredibly picturesque hotel must be on the reticulating rail. The restaurant overlooks the lake with a spectacular view. The food is superb, but quite expensive to American wallets. Take your time. This is not a place to rich in and out of.

This restaurant has amazing views over Lake Lucerne to the mountain Pilatus and professional staff attending table. The food had interesting flavour combinations and we considered 3 courses for 45 euros was pretty good value for lunch at such a premier location. This would be an ideal restaurant for a special occasion.

We stayed at the Palace across the street and decided on Scala for our 30th anniversary dinner after reading the reviews and seeing the location firsthand.

We are staying at the Hotel Montana and have eaten all of our meals at this location. Professionalism is apparent from both the kitchen and service staff.

I wanted us to celebrate my wife's birthday in a little style while in Lucerne, and decide on Scala. It was a wonderful choice. While booking, I asked that flowers be provided for my wife, and I got a personal e-mail from the deputy head of catering that this will be done. When we arrived, the flowers were there and... More

The Montana has an amazing view, both from its bars and its restaurant. Service is excellent. The meal is very good, but even though the menu might let you think you're going to eat in a gourmet restaurant, it lacks the gourmet touch. To a Swiss standard, it's excellent; but if you like subtile food that surprises you, this is... More

Being that we were staying at the Art Deco Montana, we decided to have dinner here as well. Scala is in a very nice room with large picture windows looking out onto Lake Lucerne and the mountains beyond. The ambience was very inviting and the food and service were very good. Our dining experience was quite enjoyable.
