    You simply can't get better. Scallops and Veal -- terrific! Let the waiter select you wine tastings -- even if you are a wine snob, it is worth it.

    Great upscale neighborhood restaurant. Food was great, excellant, wonderful......!!!!!!!!! Server was articulate, knowledgeable, there when you needed him and invisible when you didn't.. the perfect waiter. Atmosphere is cozy, romantic, they have a series of small rooms as you would expect in a turn of the century home that this establishment used to be. Bar is smallish but very attractive and inviting. Overall a great experience. Only negative is the parking is limited, but this not a large restaurant.

    Good food, great service, and an amazing offering of wines by the 2 oz. "taste" and by the glass, as well as by the bottle, which can be recorked and taken home. Reservations are especially important on the weekend.

    We had heard good things about L&N, but this was our first time to dine with them. We found the open reservation on OpenTable and are so happy that we got to try it. It was lovely: delicious food, great service (Kelly, I believe), wonderful wine. We would recommend for sure and will be back.

    L&N has great drink and food selections. Our waiter was wonderful; service was great. The restaurant was really loud (with patron talking) and I really wish there weren't so many tables crammed in. You feel like you are sitting on top of one another, which takes away from the experience.

    This place was outstanding. I went with my girlfriend and another couple. The flat bread was awesome and wish we got more. I had a steak which was cooked just right. My girl friend had the pork chop which she still raves about. The other couple were extremely pleased with their food as well and we tried each others food as well. Everything was outstanding. They were great at recommending wine also. We got 6 samplers I believe. Found one we liked and got a bottle of that. We are going back there tonight so I'll write another review as to how the second round went.

    My husband and I had a very enjoyable meal at the L&N. My salmon was very well prepared, and the accompanying grits and asparagus were delicious. My husband had the quiche, and said it was good. Service was excellent. It was Saturday night, and the noise level was a bit uncomfortable. Overall we had a lovely evening there.

    Always good, never disappointed here. Great selection of wines by the glass allows for experimenting and trying a different wine with each course. Server was very knowledgable of the many different selections of wine and steered us to some selections we would not have tried on our own. Very pleased with the food as well. Reasonably proced for what you get. Smoked pork chop and mussels appetizer always my favorites.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 9/17/2011
    I've been to L and N a handful of times over the past several years. The first time I went I really enjoyed the restaurant and was pleased with the discovery. However, subsequent visits have not lived up to my initial visit and have been increasingly disappointing. For example, I had the tomato and artichoke soup on my most recent visit. It was overly acidic and the vegetables (which were front and center) showed poor knife skills. Even a homey soup should have uniform-cut veggies in it. Bacon flavor was overpowering. Wine list is not what it should be at a wine bar- limited creativity and scope. Other meals in the group were okay but nothing spectacular. It is disappointing to see a restaurant seeming on the decline.

    I found this restaurant by accident on Yelp, as I was visiting from out of town. What a fortunate accident it was! I absolutely cannot say enough about how wonderful the food was, and at very reasonable prices. Also, the ability to get flights of various types of wine was an economical and fun way to try a variation of excellent wine. The service was great as well, and our server was able to help us with our wine selection. The atmosphere was cozy and romantic, though the noise level did increase when the tables filled up later on in the evening. We had a fantastic time and would definitely go back again!

    We had the deviled eggs for an appetizer & everyone loved them. Two of us ordered the vegetable quiche and I also had a spinach salad. Very good. Another liked the duck, but the portion was small, and the other person got the pork chop with potatoes and apples which he really enjoyed. Service was great.

    Great place for good specials and nice wine selections. The 2 choices of gazpacho were really different and delicious. The service was sporadic. The 2 friends I was with were there early enough to order from the Theatre Menu by 6:30 but the waitress disappeared past the deadline and they were disappointed to miss out. However, she was fairly attentive from that point on and was helpful with the wine list. We each enjoyed our dinners but were disturbed by a large table of loud people close to ours in the back room. Not much anyone could do but took away from the overall experience!!

    We have eaten at L&N for about 6 years now and have NEVER BEEN DISAPPOINTED. The food is outstanding, the atmosphere is quaint, and the service is warm & professional. We have 4 children and when my husband and I do get the opportunity to go out, we always choose L&N. We can go anywhere, but find ourselves always choosing them because the food is so good.

    Overall, this was a very good restaurant. I had the pork chops, which were outstanding and my wife had the chicken, which was also very good. The only issue was that they put us in a small dining area while the larger room remained open. Each guest that arrived continued to be seated in this smaller area. I would have preferred that they keep the intimacy and spread us out more rather than cramming us into the smaller room.
