    Service was excellent. Appetizers were great. The macaroni & cheese is off the chart. The steaks were disappointing. We had a Rib eye that had a burnt taste and my New York Strip was tuff, over cooked and lacked flavor.

    The small wedge salad was really good and so were their seafood pasta dishes. We were a little disappointed that we were unable to take advantage of the happy hour which we changed our reservations for, and was told that you could only take advantage at the bar.

    We always have a great meal at Ladera. I asked for a special order and it was granted, no problem. There was a little confusion about the coffee; the waiter didn't know he was supposed to bring the French press pot along with the coffee. I always get the filet mignon with a side of your wedge salad; wonderful. If I have room I order the lava cake and a pot of your French press decaf coffee. Love it. Thank you for offering quality dinning to Morgan Hill.

    The menu was great with a variety of choices. Service was excellent, friendly, when I had a question for the server, he went to the kitchen for the answer. Our lunch was for a friend's birthday and she enjoyed the food, it was quiet enough we could enjoy our conversaton. Our salads were fresh, full of flavors and as described on menu.

    4 of us dined here mid week. Both starters and main course were good. Sadly this visit was marred by poor service. Water spilled on us by the busboy, plates not cleared for considerable time, waitress wandering off mid question and several times I checked the room and there were no staff attending to any customers. At $300 I expect a lot more.

    My husband and I were visiting the area and decided to go to an upscale restaurant for our anniversary. When I searched for upscale restaurants, Ladera was first on the list so I called and made reservations. The location was very easy to find. As we walked up, the customers sitting at the outdoor tables looked more relaxed/casual than formal so we were a little iffy. But once we entered the restaurant, the environment was very welcoming - we fit right in. Our hostess Katie was absolutely the best. She was very friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable about the menu making great suggestions. The food was great. If we lived in the area, we would definitely be regular customers.

    I was there for a business dinner with two out of town guest. My main focus was on the business discussion so I was less aware of the normal things I tend to focus on during a private dinner. That said, absolutely nothing stood out as being a shortcoming. Table was ready at the time of the reservation, service was attentive, and the food was excellent. I didn't pay so I didn't pay attention to the final price but I wasn't surprised with the prices on the menu and didn’t hear any complaints, actually just the opposite. Lots of compliments on the selection of Ladera. Definitely recommend this to others.

    We love Ladera Grill. They have an extensive menu which is nice in a small town because you have a lot of options under one roof. Their wine list is awesome with many great choices for by the glass along with some other great wines by the bottle. They are so good that they get busy! Reservations strongly advised although they do their best to accommodate walk-ins.

    The service was quite good but the food was not up to the usual standards. Our waiter was taking orders from a large group so another waiter came to our table to explain the situation and take drink and appetizer orders. Food arrived promptly. My friend loved her dish but mine (beef short ribs) just wasn't as good as other items I've ordered there.

    We went to Ladera Grill because we had an errand to run in Morgan Hill. We were both pleased with the food & attentive service. My husband ordered the Teriyaki Chicken and I had the Eggplant Parmesean. The outdoor dining is a nice feature but the restaurant is on a main street, so be prepared for some traffic noice. Altogether a very pleasant experience.

    We were at the restaurant via a gift certificate gifted by our daughter. We were seated at a nice window booth. Our server for the evening stopped by the table and threw down special menus with no explanation and said that he would be back. When he finally returned his first words were "Are you ready to order"? We knew nothing about the specials and wanted to order drinks and an appetizer. Another server brought the appetizer and then we sat there waiting for our drinks while our appetizer got cold. Drinks finally arrived and once again in a hurried manner we were asked "Are you ready to order"? We ordered and again someone else brought the meals and placed them incorrectly on the table. My order was incomplete and I couldn't see our server
