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.

My friend and I are just wrapping up our girl trip to San Francisco. We had a wonderful time. On our first night after taking a longer than usual nap we ventured out to find a place to eat. To our surprised most restaurants are closed by nine or ten pm. Someone suggested scala bistro (it opens till 11pm) we were totally taken back by the warm service. Humberto,our waiter, was magnificent. The stuffed ravioli in white cream and the salad were exquisite. The ambience is warm and inviting. We were treated like royalty by our waiter Humberto. We recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting San Francisco. Amazing and well priced.

My wife and I went to Scala for a birthday dinner, and we were not disappointed. The restaurant is up market, being slightly pricier than average, but the quality of the food is excellent, and the atmosphere and decor is spot-on. I had the roast duck with red cabbage for main course, and it was absolutely superb!

Very convenient for guests of the Sir Francis Drake. This turned out to be a great place for a business meeting over breakfast. Upscale decor, comfortable and big booths, great selection of breakfast options. I had a coconut scone and it was delicious. Pricey but if you have the time and desire for a good meal in a very comfortable and classy restaurant then LaScala is a good choice.
