Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "Service was great, ambiance looked great, food tasteless. Annoying desk phone sound throughout dinner. Have paid a lot less for much better food."

  • "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"

  • "We where there on the 4th of July to celebrate our anniversary. I stated that on the open table reservation and there was no mention of it while we where there, which was very disappointing! We chose to eat on the patio and it was great but the service was sub par compared to the menu pricing. We chose Ladera for a very special occasion and it was just ok! Wasn't horrible and I am sure we will give it another try."

  • "I was dining outside on the 4th of July at your restaurant. I am sorry I had not posted this sooner, but it finally occurred to me to let my feelings known. We brought friends from out of town, and also brought 2 very nice bottles of wine. The waiter opened the bottles and then left them on the table never to return. Service was extremely slow, and we had to repeatedly ask for things. This is not typical of this location and we will be back. I just needed you to know how we felt, and the fact that 175.00 plus tip could have been better spent somewhere else that night...Seems like all of the "A" team players were off. Thank you for listening"

  • "Really nothing special. Food was prepared well - just nothing special. Could become a top pasta restaurant but cooks must try harder."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "All of the food was extremely under seasoned. I also had a mojito that I sent back because it tasted like pure soda water, I got a new one that tasted exactly the same. The only good thing was the raw oyster appetizer, very fresh."

  • "Served food in timely manner. Was not offered fresh black pepper/or grated cheese despite high meal prices. Food was heates under lamp too long and overoverly salted."

  • "Lovely decor, dishes for everyone. My potroast was very good, my friends' salmon and chicken dishes were equally as delicious. Service was friendly, attentive. When one of the desserts that was supposed to be a berry crumble had no berries in it, the server offered to bring another dessert but my friend preferred no other dessert so the server took the berry dish off of the bill. She also brought me a sweet Happy Birthday dessert written in caramel with with a candle in some ice cream, made this ol' lady very happy! Would defintely return and recommend. The only thing is the bar in the main dining area made for a very loud room."

  • "I especially enjoyed the menu choices. There were many items that are not commonly offered, making it hard for me to choose. Everything was tasty and served with great accompaniments. I had the pork osso buca which melted in my mouth. The desserts were very large, big enough to "share with a friend". Drinks were hearty also and not overpriced. I will definitely return here."

  • "Overall the food and service was very good. What ruined the experience was paying $40 in corkage fees to open 2 bottles of wine."

  • "Ladera Grill is a local favorite in Morgan Hill. Classy, yet comfortable and welcoming, Ladera successfully achieves a special dining experience for all. The staff at Ladera are excellent- attentive and accommodating. The food and drinks are top notch in quality, presentation and taste. When chosing a place to dine at any time, you can't go wrong with Ladera Grill."

  • "Service was good, but food was sub par. Everything was slightly overcooked. The fried artichoke appetizer was bland with tough pieces of artichoke and no zip to the sauce. The halibet shrimp dish had black sweet potatoes and the fish was overcooked. Very disappointed considering we were given a gift certificate for a special anniversary. We may give this another try as it has a good reputation."

  • "First time trying Ladera, but had heard good things about the place so drove down from San Jose to give it a try. From the beginning the service was slow, and seemed a little disorganized. We were pleasantly surprised with the appetizer, and then both of our meals. We both had salads with seafood. The seafood was fresh, and the both salads were delicious. I would recommend going for the food, but be prepared to be patient with the service. Owner/manager needs to do some training with the staff."

  • "We went to Ladera for our anniversary. A reserved table was waiting for us. The place was not overly busy but the chef's were having a bad night. Asked for no onions on my pasta and received extra onions and filet arrived cold. Waiter took both meals away and when they came back, pasta was fine, but filet, supposedly cooked medium was sadly delivered undercooked, virtually raw. The waiter could not believe how raw it was and we agreed not to return it for a 3rd time. We both left the restaurant hungry and underwhelmed. Very disappointed in a steak house that could not cook a steak. Manager never came out to apologize. Waiter apologetic and very courteous and raw filet was comp'd so thank you for that."

  • "Third time to The Ladera Grill. First two trips and the food was excellent. This time I ordered a ribeye medium and it was rare and a poor piece of meat. I did not say anything to the waitress even though I should have. I'll try again I'm sure.....next time if there is a problem I will speak up."

  • "Enjoyed a wonderful relaxing dinner at Ladera Grill. Our table was ready when we walked in, the food was excellent and time between courses was paced perfectly. Never felt rushed, we were able to relax and enjoy the meal. My favorite item is the polenta on the appetizer menu-paired this with a salad and it was just the right amount of food. My husband had the pot roast and it had a wonderful mushroom sauce on it. We splurged and had dessert-the molten chocolate cake was a slice of heaven. Can't wait to go back for more polenta!"

  • "I live in the area so I'd go back for sure. Would I drive 30-40 minutes for this place? No. But the food was delicious. The blackened salmon was grilled to perfection with a crusty skin, moist buttery inside. Pasta was perfectly al dente. Raw oysters fresh and void of any fishy aroma. Signature cocktail Moscow Mule was light yummy refreshing. Price point was fantastic and diverse, portions were generous. I would say the only thing lacking was ambience (loud!) and 5 star service. Everyone from the host(s) to waitstaff seemed perfunctory and impersonal. It was impossible to locate our waitor since he seemed responsible for nearly all the tables! We had different waitstaff serve us the food, and one designated for clearing. But food?: 5 stars!"

  • "I have eaten at Ladera in the past and also attended some of the wine dinners, which were excellent. This experience was disappointing in terms of food and service. The lobster special was very overcooked and the wait person never returned after our meal was served. We were not seated in the main dining room, which was great. It almost seems like there has been a change in management."

  • "This was our third visit to Ladera Grill. We enjoyed it as much as the previous visits, but the service was slower than other times. This may have been because we were seated outside, but we've done that before and it wasn't a problem. Surprisingly, for a Friday night it wasn't teeming with people as has been the case on other visits. Is it losing some of its popularity?? The sommelier had trouble with the cork while opening the wine which we brought.She was nice enough to disregard the corkage fee. "
