Love this place, might evenLove this place, might even say it is my favorite restaurant in Fresno!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AM3rd time This WeekTwice with clients and this night with family - Lela's was once again excellent, Tried the seared pork belly appetizer - excellent. RIb eye was large, moist and delivered medium rare as ordered. Simple pasta dish was excellent as well. My high schol senior son celebrated his graduation with the signature pork chop - good to the last bite. Full Saturday night crowd slowed the kitchen a bit but attentive service kept the water glasses full and conversation flowing. Will be back!!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat find in northwest FresnoWhat a great find ! The food was superb starting with the housemade hummus and chips. 2 couples shared the pork belly appetizer which may not sound that appealing, but was a delicious treat. The potato leek soup topped with crumbled bacon and the Cesar salad were excellent. I had the scallops that were perfectly prepared. Hubby had the filet that melted in your mouth. Ahi tuna that was a special the evening we were there was a hit, as was the huge pork chop that is a house speciality. The wine list is very good and the manager/sommelier is quite knowledgeable. Excellent rich coffee and a great dessert topped off the evening.
We will be back !5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMTop Shelf in neghborhood centerSImple but elegant setting. Meal presentation and quality excellent. Short but varied menu. "Caribbean comfort food" billing accurate - vibrant flavors and colors but not unduly spicy or hot. Lamb and pork chops are clear headliners. Lamb portion is generous, flavorful and moist. Pork chop is enormous, flavorful and tender. Other dishes tried include salmon and scallops - both very good and fresh. Beet salad is a must - beatiful and flavorful. Tomato bisque textured and flavorful. Short but nicely varied wine and craft beer list. Owner/chef Manuel will visit your table to assure your satisfaction. Good value. Must repeat.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversaryGreat service
