Never had any problems with
Never had any problems with reservations through OpenTable at this location. If you want a good table... best you make reservations 4 hours prior to dinner time M-Th. On weekends Fri-Sun I recommend 24-36 hours. As always... awesome meal.

The Food was wonderful, the restaurant was energetic, and somewhat loud. Our service was slow, but the food made up for any issues we were having. Thank you!

Best in town!
Everytime we had gone to Ladera Grill we had always received great customer service from walking in to walking out. This stably stablishment really know how to make their patrons happy and better yet feel at home. Great specials and a flawless wine list to choose from! Thank you Morgan Hill for having Ladera and saving us a drive!

Great neighborhood restaurant!
Been here before, it's small but cute and energetic. The bar is small but always packed with people. The food selection is diverse everything from sandwiches to pizza to steak and seafood. My husband had the in bone rib eye, he loved it. I had the macadamia crusted halibut special it was great. There is outdoor seating we sat indoors in a booth...very comfortable.

Every meal has been delicious!
I can't say enough about Ladera Grill in Morgan Hill. It is an excellent addition to our little town's great restaurant scene. We are very lucky to have such a nice restaurant like Ladera Grill. We have never had a bad meal here, in fact, we have always had a great meal!
Though it's one of the newest restaurants, it's among the best Morgan Hill has to offer. It has risen to the top of a list, that includes: Odeum, Maurizio's, Sushi Ichiban, The Good Fork, Sicilia en Boca...

Food is always very good.
Food is always very good. Service was fair considering mothers day crown but still acceptable. Waiter was very nice and apologetic....

Best of the bunch
I normally come here for lunch with co-workers and their service is always fast, efficient. Their menu is great for veggie & meat lovers. I decided to take my parents here to celebrate Mother's Day and I'm so glad I did. They have been vegetarian for 8 years now and we always try to find new places for them to try. The menu did not disappoint. Here's what we I remember ordering. Stuffed Portobella mushroom (2 thumbs up!) Truffel mac & cheese (excellent!!) vegetarian Eggrolls (sauce was great.. eggrolls were decent) Mushroom Risotto (yuuuummm heaven ). Those were small platters for the 4 of us to share just the right portion. My sister and I split the Grilled Seafood Harvest Salad (one of my all time favorite here) Good eating!

Good as usual!
We love Ladera Grill. Their food and service is always top notch. We had a reservation for a party of 7 and we were seated immediately. We ordered a couple of the specials, the short ribs, and three people got the pork osso bucco. The pork is always fantastic. It is hard to not want to order it every time! My only complaint was that the bar service was slow, so we had to wait more than usual for drinks.
5/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Again, Ladera did not disappoint. It was crowded as usual but our table was ready as planned. Food was excellent as always the pace was good. Great wine list with a mixture of local and Norther Ca. wines. Something for everyone. I had the brochette which was delicious and got to taste the beef stroganoff, and the linguini and clams. All delicious.
If your in looking for a place in Morgan Hill this is it. Make your reservation though, it is extremely popular.

What a great find in the South Bay. The crabcakes were awesome the best.

Wonderful dining experience
Went for my son's graduation. We arrived earlier than our reservation time but they seated us right away. The food has been spot on every time we have dined here and they have a great happy hour as well, if you're lucky enough to snag a spot at the bar. It's one of the nicer restaurants in MH and they have a great variety on their menu to choose from.
6/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
We've been to Ladera Grill many times and always have a very good meal there. We were a party of 4 and everyone enjoyed their meal. We shared the Risotto mushroom appetizer ( excellent) and also shared dessert of Tiramisu (one of the best we've ever had). My coffee Keoke & Lemon Drop Martini were also very good. My friend's Osso Bucco was delicious, she said, but too much to finish! My husband's Scallops were very good. My entree, Rosemary grilled Veal Chop, was also good. The only problem was that I ordered the Gorgonzola potatoes and the sauce from that mixed with my delicious meat sauce. Those two flavors did not go together well. My mistake, not theirs. Overall, always a delicious meal at Ladera Grill!
6/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Never disappointed with the service or the food. When we want to treat ourselves, family or friends, we bring them here. Everyone is delighted.
6/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
If you're looking for a nice place to grab a moderately priced tastey meal Ladera is the place to go! Great service, ambiance and food.
7/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Celebrating our 43 rd wedding anniversary. Food and service were excellent. Had the crispy calamari as an appetizer with a drink at the bar. The best calamari ever. Furor dinner we had the grilled scallops that was on the special menu. Cooked to a tee.
7/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
On the pricey side, but great food and great presentation and good service. The Restuarant name doesn't fit the food or price. This place is much more than a "bar" and grill.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
A Gem in a little town...
Boy, some of the restaurants in SF could take a lesson from Ladera....the food absolutely never disappoints....everything always prepared well, good service, etc...the fish is especially noteworthy as is the Bomb Burger!! One of the best burgers around! And the Chilean Sea Bass is without peer....unfortunately, it is not a part of the regular menu, but occasionally on a special!
7/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Relaxing dining experience!
My wife and I were seated next to the window in a very pleasant dining room. It was away from the bar area so it was less noisy. I had the paella special and my wife had a seafood pasta in a pesto sauce. Both were delicious! The service was excellent as well. We will definitely be going back.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Jonathon was great!
Our server, Jonathon really made our evening. We were dining with old friends and were looking forward catching up. Even though it was very busy Jonathon gave us just the right amount of attention. Cocktails was tasty and quick...Dinner, delightful...Coffee, the best.

Hot spot in Morgan Hill!
I love Ladera! The food is fantastic. The service is great. If you can grab a space at the bar the drinks are great and the crowd there is very friendly. Great local Morgan Hill hot spot. Love the oysters rockefeller. Steaks are great, seafood fantastic. I'm now a regular - you can't go wrong with Ladera.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
more attention to detail
This was our first trip to Ladera and the food was really good, BUT, my husband got the crab stuffed filet and the filling was cold. I had a bite of it and said if it was me, I would have heated it up - so he asked the waitress and she said it was supposed to be at least warm. They did offer us free dessert but were full and had not planned on having dessert anyway. It really wasn't a big deal. The steak was still cooked well and tasted good. They did end up comping my drink, which was unexpected but very nice. Our hope is that this will get back to the kitchen staff and no one else will get cold crab stuffing. I had the chicken and shrimp with capers and artichoke hearts - it was a bit tangy but still good. Larry loved the Oysters.

Best place in Morgan Hill
Once again I'm just thrilled with the service and food. I also brought my 7 week old son and they were very accommodating. I've tried most of the menu and it's been delicious. I highly recommend the mushroom risotto for an appetizer and did your meal the chicken Toscana. Even as I'm writing this my mouth is watering. Great service, great food, and great atmosphere. Love love love!
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ladera was at the top of their game during our anniversary dinner. The Hostess was very friendly and just got better from there, our server was very attentive and made good recommendations. My wife had the ribeye steak and it was cooked to order, the Chilean Bass was on the special menu and I went for it, what a great meal, I would recommend that if you have never had Chilean Bass you will enjoy every bite. After our dinner our server brought us a special dessert compliments of Ladera, thank you all at Ladera Grill for a great anniversary dinner.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was very good
My guest and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal, consisting of salads, veal chop, salmon and the chocolate molten cake.
The portions were quite generous. The coffee was a little weak for my taste.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent food. Service was
Excellent food. Service was a little disappointing. Waiter did not know the full menu, although he did have a cheat sheet, so that was forgiveable. However, he did not notice we finished our pre-dinner cocktails, and we had to flag him down to order a bottle of wine, which did not appear until after the main course had been served. During dinner, he did not ask even once if everything was ok with our meals.
We will definitely return, food was excellent, hopefully we do not get this server in the future.
Risotto appetizer was delicious, steak and lamb osso bucco were excellent, and the dessert was fantastic and well presented.

I almost ordered a second entree
This is one of our favorite restaurants. We drive about 20-25 minutes to get here...happily. I've never had a bad dish, the parking is easy, and Simon is a staff member we've known from previous excellent restaurants.
My favorite these days is the Chicken Toscana, it makes my mouth water, and this last time, I really debated between a second helping of the Toscana and dessert. Alas, dessert won out this time.

don't order a sandwich
my pastrami sandwich was dry and dull. My guest's cioppino was great however: lesson learned.

We ate at Ladera Grill tonight
We ate at Ladera Grill tonight for my hubby's birthday, and picked this spot based on the other yelp reviews. It was a great dining experience. The restaurant is located in a very cute area in downtown Morgan Hill. It's great for outdoor dining, although we were seated inside the restaurant. For a weeknight, this place was surprisingly busy which we took to be a good sign. We had the crab cake as an appetizer, filet mignon, rib eye steak, raspberry crepes and coffee gelato. Everything was delicious. My hubby wants to come back and we would definitely recommend this spot to our friends and family. The service was also very good.

Service was great! Food was
Service was great! Food was good ! I had the seafood linguini. yummy ! however a little skimpy on the seafood. 1 mussle, 1 clam and 2 shrimp, with some chunks of fish. Really ? I did ask that they leave out scallops and calamari, but still disappointing . The wedge salad was good, the salmon salad was great. others had tilapia and a chicken dish they were pleased with. My only real problem was the noise level was very loud. Had trouble hearing my dining companions. Made it difficult to converse with each other. Will we return? Maybe? Since the choices in the area are so limited we probably will .

Heart Warming Reunion
Ladera Grill's food, ambience, and customer-friendly service established a fine atmosphere for our family reunion. The restaurant's culture of being aware of the customer's desires contributed in a positive manner to our time together.

This is one of my favorite
This is one of my favorite restaurants in the city. There is just one waiter that should not be there, he has poor service.

Another fine dinner
We enjoyed our dinner, the food was excellent and so was the service.

Great time with friends...
I went to Ladera for dinner for the first time ( I had been there for lunch before.). I am new in to Morgan Hill and had 3 friends from out of town come visit for my birthday. We all loved it! The Food was great - service was wonderful, the enviroment was perfect and the wine choice we had in mind was available (2008 Silver Oak Cab) . They even gave me my bday dessert on the house.
I would go back again :)

FANTASTIC AS ALWAYS!!!!!
We have been to Ladera Grill several times and they always deliver. Fantastic food, service impeccable, always attentive to our needs, polite, professional and clean!! Can't wait to go back on Christmas Eve...
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
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.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Outstanding as always
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.
