Diner Reviews
  • "Nice atmosphere, upscale dining, courteous staff, delicious!"
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "We are new to the area and visited this restaurant for dinner, for the first time, on the advice of friends and neighbors. We were very pleased with the friendly service, variety and quality of the food. In particular we would recommend the lobster pizza appetizer. Prices were reasonable, considering the quality. We will be returning for sure."

  • "Well worth trying this cozy restaurant. We got there a bit early for our reservation but our table was ready and we were promptly seated. Valet parking made it easy. Service was attentive and friendly. Try the tuna tartar appetizer and beet salad; both were excellent. All our entrées were delicious. Save room for dessert."

  • "Food has always been great. Service also has never been a problem. However, I was only given 2 choices online for a reservation, 6:15 or 9pm. We were there at 6:15 and were the only people in the dining room. By 7pm, only 2 other tables were occupied. The room was not full until we were leaving near 9 pm. Are there restrictions to online reservations? I am wondering if calling in the reservation would have made a difference."

  • "Restaurant was empty. Food was good. Service was fair. We always seemed to be looking for someone to refill water. Food came out separately but was hot."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "We've dined at this restaurant several times before and had better experiences. The menu looked great but my shrimp was so overcooked it required a saw. The waitress was a bit flighty. The air conditioner was put on and it was very chilly and we could not get attention of the staff to address the problem. This was probably my last visit."

  • "This restaurant is a diner's dream. Excellent food at reasonable prices. Everything is good from the pecan crusted chicken to the calamari with ginger sauce. Fish and seafood are wonderful too and there is a fixed price lunch which is a very good deal. Service is fabulous and you have a choice of eating in the dining room or the bar area, depending on your mood. I highly recommend visiting Restaurant L. You will be very happy you did."

  • "Restaurant L is our favorite local restaurant for both lunch and dinner. The food is always fresh, attractively presented and delicious. The truffle french fries are superb!! It is a small dining room so be sure to make reservations for week-ends. The bar area is lively and very popular."

  • "Outside of Drago's charbroiled oysters in New Orleans, Restaurant L's braised rib ravioli may be the most delicious single bite of food ever. Go for the local glam scene, go for the wine list but YOU must order the ravioli."

  • "Had no idea what to expect since I am not from the area, the place was tastefully decorated, the ambiance was wonderful! Dimly lit, quiet and romantic on a cold winter night. The Martini was Fab as was the wine list...We enjoyed the Hangar steak and the Linguine with white clam sauce and both were exceptional! Toni was a fun energetic waitress with knowledge of the menu and advice to share..will definitely add this place to our go to list!"

  • "This was our first time. I had heard nice things about the restaurant. Since it was geographically located along our way, we decided to try something new. We felt very welcomed upon entering. The ambiance was intimate, cozy and absolutely lovely. We had a beautiful round banquette table in the corner. The service was excellent….the food outstanding. We started with the beet salad…entree was tilapia, and the preparation was delicious. Relaxing and comfortable….we look forward to a return visit!"

  • "So many nice choices, it was hard to decide. The grouper with loster mashed potatoes was expertly prepared. Have not had a bad dish yet. Nice wine list, bottle of Sean Minor Pinot was incredible smooth. Will be back."

  • "Every time I go to this restaurant, I have a great time. The food is delicious and the ambiance is wonderful. The menu has some great specials and terrific standards like the pecan crusted chicken and short rib ravioli. The calamari with the ginger sauce makes it stand out from other restaurants. I like the fact that we can dine in the bar area (either at real tables or the bar) and watch the game or enjoy quiet conversation in the separate dining area. Love to eat out here at least once a month. When we get too busy, we order take out!"

  • "Food was ok. It was super loud on a Saturday evening and all four of us in our party had a difficult time carrying a conversation. Service was superb. Wine list is very expensive."
    Dined on 11/16/2013
  • "I've been to Restaurant L many times, my last visit was early on a Friday night with a friend. The menu has something for everyone beef, seafood, chicken, pasta. Not overwhelming but a great selection. They offer gluten free items as well. Some of my favorites are short ribs, chili shrimp, polenta with mushrooms. Portions are just right not huge and not small. I usually pass on dessert but not at this restaurant. Fresh mini donuts, served warm. OMG!! Special Martinis are are flavorful and never too sweet. Waitresses are attentive but not too much. This was my friends first visit and she was impressed. Mentioned that she'd surely be back."

  • "Each time my friends get together at the bar for wine and appetizers or we bring my friends mother for a Sunday dinner, the food is always consistently delicious. Great wine by the glass selection."

  • "We were lucky enough to grab a Living Social coupon to use at Restaurant L for my son's 18th birthday. I've been here before (great lunch specials!), but my husband and son had not. We all loved the food, My husband had the famous short ribs, my son had the L burger with short ribs on top, and I had a delicious pork shank served over unctuous homemade noodles with a creamy truffle infused sauce. The lobster appetizer pizza was inspiring - we want to figure out how to reproduce it at home! The waitress was sweet; very motherly as we talked about our teenage sons. We'll be back..."
    Dined on 10/28/2013
  • "It was a very nice place to have some appetizers & drinks. The food seemed a bit overpriced for the selection. The oysters & shrimp cocktail were delicious. The pizza was a bit overcooked and didn't have fresh mozzarella or basil as a normal Margarita pizza has. The service was wonderful, both bartenders were extremely nice and observant to our needs."
