Scala's Bistro

Scala's Bistro Chef


Scala's Bistro offers you a warm, inviting setting, right in our lobby, not to mention award-winning Parisian bistro cuisine. This is one of downtown San Francisco's favorite establishments, perfect for a celebratory meal or a light plate between shopping expeditions. The Scala's kitchen turns out classic dishes that incorporate the freshest ingredients in an adventurous and sophisticated way.

An Elegant Old World Atmosphere. We have recreated the look and feel of a classic Parisian bistro, with an eclectic mix of deep golden and tobacco tones, original murals, gilt mirrors, ornate Mediterranean tiles, and an open kitchen. This elegant ambiance is warm and cozy, too, perfect for watching the cable cars roll by outside.
