I have lived through Scalo's ups and downs and it has lived with mine. I was there when it opened. There when it changed hands. New chefs, new menus, remodels, etc. We have shared many special occasions. I have sworn it off and then come back. Recent experiences show me it is very good to excellent, consistent, and sometimes surprisingly great. The specials are usually really special. I have learned to try them. Last night was scallops and they were excellent. My date had bianci y neri pasta off the menu and she loved it. The wines are carefully selected and excellent. The list invites you to take a chance. Do it. You won't be disappointed. The restaurant always offers great service. The outdoor seating is a relaxing casual experience. Indoor is elegant. The bar is always good, with interesting people watching and consistently good music on weekends. I have experienced one or two off-days at Scalo, but they are very rare and could be attributed to the weather, sun spots, or my own mood. If you need the experience to be just right, odds are, it will be at Scalo.
