Parking was dicey just because it had been a wet day but worth the short walk to the front door. Got there early and had drinks in the bar while we waited for our table. I'd highly recommend reservations.
Rachel, our waitress, was awesome. She was truly there for us and our contentment! The food was wonderful. Ribeye was cooked exactly as we love it- medium. Cut it the butter knife. Mediterranean pasta dish was very flavorful with a substantial shrimp inside. It has been a long time since we've been impressed by food at a restaurant - this meal was top notch! My only regret was leaving enough room for dessert! Thanks, LA Cafe!

I tried LA Cafe a few weeks ago for dinner with my family and have wanted to go back. I went yesterday for lunch with a friend and had another great experience. Our waitress was friendly and our food was very good. I recommend it.

Our server was very nice and helpful. The hostess seemed lost and was extremely slow. She mumbled when we asked a question and we were not sure what she said.

Some of the food was really good and some was just ok.

New Year’s Eve dinner. Generally every year this is our “go to” restaurant to eat on this night. Staff is friendly, service is great and food is wonderful.

We got together with another family for a holiday dinner. My family has never been there. It was a Monday night and upon arrival the place had several people but was not overcrowded. It was a nice atmosphere and not overly loud like some restaurants. They had a nice table set up for our party of 9. The menu was diverse and there were lots of yummy options. We ended up getting 4 appetizers. We had a great meal. Some chose pasta, some seafood, a couple had steaks that were cooked perfectly, 2 had burgers. All was delicious. At the end we chose a couple of the mini cheesecakes with a raspberry sauce for dessert. That was to die for and enough to serve my family of four however it didn’t take us long to eat it and we were scraping the plate. Our server Marianne was fantastic. She was super friendly, helpful, and on point with her service. We couldn’t have asked for a more pleasant evening with dear friends. We will definitely go back. I may have found my new favorite restaurant! Thank you LA Cafe for a lovely evening!

We enjoyed our dinner and enjoyed our experience at LA Cafe! We were dotted immediately and our server, Stephanie, greeted us immediately with a warm welcome and a smile. She continued through the meal to be very attentive. We all thought our selections were delicious and brought out in a timely manner! All in all, we agreed we would come again and bring more friends.

We had the parmesan encrusted pork loin, a strip steak, and the chicken parmesan. All were excellent and individually prepared. The menu here is always something wonderful-especially if you are held to a diabetic diet. It is the one place I can go where they go out of their way to accommodate my needs with honestly delicious entrees and sides. I never feel "cheated" when I eat here! Service is great as well and the restaurant is clean, decorated in a fun motorcycle motif, with absolute first class food!

It was my twin daughter’s 20th birthday, we had a party of 8 with an eight-month-old baby. The service was absolutely outstanding. Our waitress brought some special plain soft noodles for the baby right away so we could feed him before our meals came. All the rest of the meals came out together and perfect. The food was great, our waitress was very attentive. We love LA Café and will be back.

Service was very good. Food was average- low quality steaks. Salads are good and they do a nice baked potato! Wine selection is on the low end but they’ve done a nice job of selecting decent options.

Our food was hot and tasted good. Our server was very friendly and she checked on us throughout our meal.
I did notice that the servers were cleaning up around the dining room about 9:30 as if we were wearing out our welcome.
Overall it was a good meal for a fair price in a comfortable setting
