Diner Reviews
  • "Good food and a good ambience. They have been trying a cabaret type duo singing during dinner on Mondays (and I think they said Sundays or Tuesdays). This was unexpected. The electric piano was a little to lounge sounding for my taste although the young singer was pleasant. It was unexpected as we went for a quiet dinner so was actual a bit if a negative as they were a little too loud for a quiet dinner. However, service was good and so was the food. I know that are trying the entertainment for a few weeks...not sure it's working well."

  • "There exists speed bumps on the Monterey so vehicles accelerates once past the speed bumps and the exhaust pollution is quite noticable. Nothing Ladera can do to remedy this situation, so next time we will sit on the side street."

  • "The food at Ladera was very tasty. The service was mediocre, at best. We arrived at 11:30 for lunch and waited 20-25 minutes between getting menus and seeing our waitress for the first time. She apologized, but didn't make up for it with better service throughout the meal. One of the 3 meals brought out was the wrong item, though they did fix it relatively quickly. Overall, I would give them another chance, but skip this place if you have a timeline or are trying to impress your dining companions."

  • "Four old friends celebrated a birthday last weekend at Ladera Grill, and were treated very well by the staff there. We are fortunate to have several good restaurants in Morgan Hill, but I have to say this experience was outstanding and we will be back soon. The green salad was just as I remembered from a previous visit, with lots of good flavors and a lovely light and slightly tart/sweet dressing. The fillets were cooked as ordered, and were tender and delicious. I would especially recommend the sides of gorgonzola potatoes and creamed spinach."

  • "It's nice place- we were early diners, had a reservation so we got a window booth. At that hour, the bar was active and raised the noise level a little too high for me. The wedge salad was very nice, the Filet Oscar very good, but the Tuscan Linguini was too spicy hot. At first I attributed that to excessive garlic, which can make a dish hot, but then noticed red pepper flakes, which were not a part of the description. We will be back..."

  • "Ladera Grill is an awesome spot for great food. The bar in the dining area does get a bit rowdy at times, but overall it is a positive energy. The wine list is amazing and I love the specials paired with the chef's recommendations. I tried the house special of crab and artichoke enchiladas and wine pairing, and loved every bite. This is a place we will most definitely visit again, and again."

  • "This is a great "ladies night out" place as a group of us old friends get together here several times a year and we love the food, service and they find us a corner booth that is quieter. Our waiter, Renee, was the BEST! The food is also is delicious, and beautifully presented. You won't be disappointed."

  • "I was at Ladera Grill for the first time on a Sunday evening. There was a singer and large group pf people in one end of restaurant that was a bit loud but there was seating outside as well as right side of restaurant that was quiet so a good fit for all! The service was excellent and friendly and my dinner was delicious. My husbands filet mignon was also cooked perfectly, tender and delicious. We will definitely be back!"

  • "We have been to Ladera Grill several times and have always had a great experience. We were seated immediately when entering the restaurant . The atmosphere is relaxing and there is always a buzz in the room. Our server was friendly and attentive. We ordered the We both ordered specials this evening. My husband ordered the Hot Pot that had chicken, shrimp, fish in a red sauce. I ordered the Bass that was grilled whole. My husbands over done and tough. My fish was grilled to perfection, but the sides of rice and veggies were brought to the table on another plate and were cold. It was the the first time our entrees did not hit a home run. Our desert the molten chocolate cake was warm and amazing. We will be back!"

  • "My friends and I had been anticipating this for over one week. We were greeting by a lovely young lady at the door and escorted to our table very quickly by a charming young man. We sat at our table for almost 20 minutes without so much as a "hello" from anyone and when the server came to the table, he wanted the entire order immediately. We attempted to slow his pace just a bit as we did not want the appetizers and dinner to come out at the same time. Several things were forgotten at the table, the server poured my wine into someone else's glass and just seemed scattered and forgetful. The food was wonderful however. I hope it was an off night for the server or maybe he is new. Not sure. Hesitant about coming back."

  • "Good drinks and food. Service was attentive and at a fine dining pace, never felt rushed. Thought I ordered the veal chop, the rack of lamb came out instead. It was amazing, as well as the risotto my wife ordered. Good spot for a nice date night."

  • "I had only been to Ladera for dinner in the past and have always been very pleased with the food and service. While the service was still very good, the lunch offering is not as good as dinner. We had a party of 5. 2 chose the lasagna and loved the unique presentation. 2 others had sandwiches. I had the scallops which was on the daily specials menu. There were 4 small scallops left in their shells and 1 large scallop outside of its shell on a bed of pasta with a mild yellow curry sauce. The flavor was not strong, but also lacked any real body and was not memorable."

  • "Amazing bone-in ribeye. Reasonable prices for a restaurant of this type. Some of the best raw oysters I have ever had!"
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "We come here often, simply because the food is terrific every time, and that the atmosphere for outside dining is one of our favorites. If it's cooler outside they have the gas heaters available. Very cozy experience, just due to the location. Located at the corner of two cross roads which do get a lot of traffic, but it's a slow moving traffic and lots of people walking by adds to the social experience. Inside is usually quite energetic / loud, so if you're looking for a quiet evening, outside would be better."

  • "Who'da thunk ... in the midst of Morgan Hill, a sleepy downtown, a restaurant with an excellent menu and a great wine list. Our server was informed and informative. He was available without hovering. The sports bar was around the corner, and would have affected our evening, but we could not hear the TV and the crowd was not noisy. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. My pork chop was generous and the green beans were nicely crunchy. My partner's brie and the shell fish plate were both nicely done."

  • "The variety and taste of the food was wonderful. Wine selection great. The only draw back was the noise - we were in the room to the right as you enter the front door and there were several large groups. I think the servers did well for the amount of tables being served."

  • "Ladera Grill is a true gem. My wife ordered halibut from the prix fixe special Thanksgiving; I ordered stuffed sole. Both were delicious. The service was prompt and friendly; our waitress especially considerate and helpful. Our wine selection, a Wiilamette Valley pinot gris, was perfect. Thank you, Ladera Grill!"

  • "We decided to go out for Thanksgiving dinner this year. We have eaten at Ladera Grill before and were happy to find out they were open on Thanksgiving. We had 3:30 reservations and were seated promptly with a booth by the window. Simon was our waiter, very nice and professional. We decided to get a bottle of wine, Smith and Hook Cabernet. It was nice they had their regular menu items available and a price fixe option too. We choose the price fixe option. For our first course my husband choose the salad and I selected the soup, for our main course and desert we both selected the turkey entree and pumpkin pie. Both were excellent . Only, negative was noise level from large group seated next to us."

  • "Started off with a wonderful Grey Goose Raspberry Lemondrop martini - cheers to the bartender! It was so good, I ordered a second. I tried the seafood risotto and my daughter had the ahi salad.The risotto was okay, a little under seasoned - nothing a little salt didn't fix. My daughter wasn't aware the ahi salad had anchovy and didn't like them in her salad. She liked the rest of the salad enough but wasn't too impressed."
