    We truly enjoyed our dining experience at Ladera Grill. Food was excellent (very tasty and filling), and the service (Jonathan) was outstanding. We felt very comfortable (not rushed, at all). We dine at Ladera occasionally, for lunch and/or dinner, and have always enjoyed ourselves.

    This has been our favorite restaurant. They have always reserved a certain booth for us and this time we were stuck at a little table in the north room. We had asked for the booth as always but the guys on duty did not deliver and seemed a bit confused. Our location this time had as much noise as we have ever experienced in any restaurant. The food was ,as always, very good, and Katie, our wait person was very nice. However, for the time being, this is no longer our favorite spot.

    I met a business colleague for dinner - the food and overall restaurant ambiance was good.. nice vibe, but it was a bit too noisy for good conversation where they sat us in the middle of the room. My suggestion would be to ask to be seated in the smaller room away from the bar.

    My family enjoyed their dinner, but it took a little while to come. Service was great, however they seemed to be hamstrung by the kitchen, that took over an hour to get our entree's. The bread we were given in the meantime was smashed flat as a pancake and was burnt. I paid $56 for the steak, which was cooked incorrectly, and didn't taste very good in the end. My wife's $20 pasta dish tasted better. Overall, it's a nice restaurant, however very overpriced for what you get in the end.

  • Ladera Grill Needs To Step It Up
    OpenTable Diner Since 2005VIP
    Dined on 10/25/2014
    We've been coming here for years and have always had good food. We keep coming back because I would love for this restaurant to have great food. There aren't many restaurants in the area to rave about. For some reason the past 2 months something has changed. The food quality has gone down. Our dinners tasted like there wasn't any passion behind them, and the deserts aren't good. My Tiramisu was frozen and then thawed out. The bottom of it was so wet from being defrosted, and it tasted like it was made from old white bread. Please Ladera Grill and step it up!

    I took my little girl there for her 11th birthday as she has been wanting a "fancy" dinner (her words). Being that we live so close and her mother and I had a date night there before she thought this fit the description of a fancy dinner. The server was nice and polite but it didn't seem like it was a special occasion for anything. The Water Bar in San Francisco will attempt to get you the best seat in the house and from the moment you walk in they make it all about the person who is celebrating the special day. Anyone who is interested in making a special occasion indeed special I would not recommend Ladera Grill. Oh well there is always next year to make it a special day

    In Morgan Hill this was a great restaurant with very attentive service. We celebrated a couple birthdays and they went out of their way to be there when needed, stay in the background when we got rowdy and brought out 2 deserts for our celebration. Our waiter kept us updated on the Giants winning score too! Extra Bonus. Will go back - very nice, clean and great food

    My wife and I went out for our anniversary, and since I had eaten here once before, and recalled it as being good, I suggested it for this dinner. We sat outside, and the weather was perfect. Our waitress was very attentive, but not too much so. The food was great! My wife had the shark special which was cooked perfectly and tasted incredible. I had the filet mignon oscar which was also very good.

    Dined on 9/30/2014
    Last Tuesday night was our first visit to the Ladera Grill. We had heard good things about it and decided it was time to give it a try. We found the menu to offer a wide variety. We were also presented with a menu indicating a flight of wine with three or four choices for a food pairing for $25. There was also a menu with the restaurant's specials. I chose the Ladera Risotto with Shrimp, my husband chose the Chicken Parmesan, and my sis-in-law had the shrimp encrusted salmon. We were all very pleased with our entrees and felt that the prices were fair. We will definitely go back again.

    We ate outdoors because it was a bit too loud inside in main dining room, and it was nice outside. We ate on Monterey st. side, had our own personal patio heater, and a 4 person table for 2 (no kids this time)- our res. was on a Fri. night in Sept. @7:30, so I was pretty impressed it was so accommodating. Food and Wine menu is extensive, burgers to steaks and seafood. Service was excellent, filling our wine and cocktails on time, checking on us often - 1 waiter was even singing softly to himself :) I'd pre-ordered a special occasion dessert, and that was remembered and served wonderfully. Relaxing atmosphere, where we could enjoy our meal and still talk. Fig and Brie pastry is to die for. I think I'd even take the kids here.
