European Flair at Scala's Bistro, San Francisco in Union Square

Since opening in 1995, Scala's Bistro has celebrated seasonal ingredients created in an uncomplicated and inspired style. Our kitchen produces an earthy and satisfying offering that allows diners to bask in the culinary delights of the Italian and French countryside.

Located just a block from Union Square, Scala's Bistro is adjacent to the historic Sir Francis Drake Hotel. High ceilings with original elaborate design, richly colored floor tiles, a setting inspired by Monet's kitchen, and Scala's Old World atmosphere create a comfortable yet elegant ambiance. An eclectic mix of original murals, rich tobacco tones, gilt mirrors, white linen tablecloths and a semi-open kitchen produces the look and feel of a classic Parisian bistro.

The marvelous menu at Scala's Bistro can also be enjoyed as part of all Private Dining events at the Sir Francis Drake. From intimate gatherings to after meeting wine receptions, we'll make sure you enjoy every last bite from Scala's.
