A word from La Tee Da Cafe
Welcome to La Tee Da. A family owned and operated business since 2005. Everything we serve is house made and locally sourced when possible. I have a rule...if I wouldn't serve it to my family my customers aren't going to eat it either. We do all we can to please and satisfy our customers. We do hope that you will join us and see for yourself.Continued

  • "The food was fabulous - Service was attentive, without being overbearing. Will definitely go back, especially to sit outside on their patio."

  • "This is my 5th time dining at this restaurant and always love having a girls wine night at this gem right in the heart of Allentown. The spinach appetizer was phenomenal as always but the entrees need some work. The food lacks flavor and I really want to love it but it falls short :( Most of the entrees are very healthy which is good, and although descriptions sound lovely, the food is bland and not memorable. My tuna was pretty dry and my friend's salad lacked flavor as well. This spot is adorable and I hope the chef can work on making the food as awesome as the decor."

  • "Even though the winter accommodations are small compared to the summer patio, it was great for the six of us. The specials were amazing especially the Cod dinner. Portions were big enough for my husband and myself to bring home and eat for dinner the next day. And the bottle of wine for $15 was a bonus. They even wrapped up the leftover wine and sealed so we wouldn't transport an open container. Waitress very pleasant, and efficient."

  • "Menu was limited and was not the same menu as posted on Open Table. Server and host were great. Great atmosphere."

  • "I found La Tee Da on Urban Spoon and was excited that I was able to make a reservation on line for that evening for a larger group of people. I was very excited that they could accommodate us. I was impressed with both the food and the service their risotto was very flavorful and the eggplant appetizer was light but flavorful. Everyone else I was with really enjoyed their meal as well. My only two complaints were the fact that they didn't serve liquor and it was a bit dark and smaller than I expected, it felt a bit crowded in the small space. Overall our experience was great. I would recommend it to friends and I plan to return."

  • "Very good food with reasonable wine cost. Bench seating on one side which is a bit uncomfortable and cramped. For 4 people or less, consider choosing a table with chairs on the opposite side."

  • "There was a lot of pasta on the menu. I was hoping for a meat & vegetable entrée,but there was not much available. I ordered a sausage dish which was quite good. My husband ordered beef burgundy, but the beef was tough and very dry. The wine was excellent and the $15/bottle price a good deal. The service was excellent."

  • "We have dined here twice now. Once in summer when we were able to sit on the outdoor patio, and most recently inside. Both experiences were fabulous. Excellent food. Great service. Prices are excellent for the quality of food you get. And $15 bottles of wine. Highly recommend!!"

  • "we had a gift certificate so we went to La Tee Da on a Saturday evening. big mistake. it was extremely claustrophobic, exceedingly loud, generally uncomfortable. the food was mediocre at best. my husband and daughter each had the filet special, which was anything but special......no flavor whatsoever, and a pretty tiny portion for the price. The crab and artichoke appetizer tasted more like tuna..very odd. having to wait well over an hour between apps and entrees was just ridiculous. Service was disinterested. Beverage refills were not even offered. I think this restaurant needs to refocus on its product rather than its so-called "scene." There are too many excellent restaurants in buffalo to waste time and money on sub par dining."

  • "I have been enjoying going to La Tee Da for years now. I have always loved everything about the place. From the ambience, to the food to the service; they are consistently fabulous. I have celebrated anniversaries, special times with friends & romantic dinners here with my husband. They are a family run restaurant and it makes all the difference. You always feel welcome & your business is appreciated. It really is one of my most favorite places to visit. I highly recommend a visit. You won't be disappointed!"

  • "It's a small restaurant with a couple 4-6 seat tables and a series of two seat tables side by side by side by side [which my girlfriend and I were seated at]. The tables are too close together for my liking and because you're practically seated directly beside the person at the table next to you, it made me uncomfortable. The food was fine. I didn't dislike anything but it really wasn't anything special either. My girlfriend likes this restaurant and goes there several times a year with her friends but as I said, it's not for me."

  • "LaTeDa is an excellent restaurant from all perspectives in the heart of Allentown. A short walk gets you to the Philharmonic and Elmwood Village is right around the corner. The setting has a NYC feel inside, long and somewhat narrow, warm and welcoming. Food, drink , service and ambience are all great."

  • "Great food! Great service!! I would definitely recommend this to anyone as well as coming back myself. Perk: is it's connected to a great independent bookstore that you can browse some fantastic titles and rare gems, before or after your dining experience!"

  • "THIS RESTAURANT HAS BEEN A TOP CHOICE SINCE IT OPENED, THE DEATH OF ITS WONDERFUL OWNER HAS NOT CHANGED THAT. THE NEXT GERATION IS DOING AN EXCELLENT JOB.."

  • "Out of both wines that were ordered. Waitress inexperienced.She Offered a Mexican replacement...Tempernillo...which is Spanish.Split dish fee is ridiculous. When we have so many choices of places to eat and choose you, be thrilled. Don't charge for split plate because you just lost two customers."
