What an awful experience. We were looking forward to our first night out together after welcoming a new baby and ended up taking home our food home in a box, untouched.
After being seated we found there was lipstick all over the water glass. When we kindly asked for a new glass the server did not seem to see the issue and instead said it was just really hard to get the lipstick off the glasses. I can’t imagine how someone setting the tables or filling the glasses did not see this as it was bright red lipstick. Rather than taking the glass she left it there and did not bring a replacement until I asked again, 20+ minutes later.
Appetizer and salad were mediocre, but certainly nothing special. Our entrees (prime rib and NY strip) were brought out and I could immediately tell something was a bit off. My NY strip (requested medium) was bright red on the inside and calling it “rare” would be generous. My husband’s prime rib was equally uncooked. Almost 10 minutes after placing our food on the table our server came back and I showed her my clearly undercooked steak and said it didn’t quite look medium and asked, rather politely, if it could be cooked a little longer. Again, she didn’t seem to care and simply asked if I wanted it cooked. While waiting on the entrees to be brought back out we went ahead and asked for boxes and the check as the flies swarming around our table were just the icing on the cake.
We were excited to try this restaurant, but wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. The price we paid for this meal did not come close to the quality of the food we received and certainly didn’t match the level of service we were provided.
I’d go back
Delicious food, great atmosphere, great service!! Will definitely be back.
thank you for the review Monica!
Food was AMAZING! Price was reasonable! Service was quick and it was pretty quiet. They have worked hard to update the outdoor space and it is AWESOME!
We arrived early for a 5:00 dinner - as the place was booked up (Saturday) until 9:00 PM - clearly a very popular place! 1/2 outside diining area- very nice on an 80 degree day. 1/3 inside is almost formal - white table cloths and silver service - the rest is a bit of a sports bar - separate from the other areas. Good food and a bit over much for us on quantity. Brought over half the spaghetti home.
thank you for the great review Dave!
Service was great.
Great food and service, really broad menu that has something for everyone as well.
Great food and staff!
Chris is fantastic.
Chris is great. Ice tea glass got refilled without asking same for the water glass.
Our server addressed my son by name and talked directly to him. At 6, this made him feel very important and special! Service and food are always outstanding here.
Our waitress was amazing, stayed calm, did a good job. She was taking care of 9 tables at once. Busy Saturday night, probably short staffed like many places are right now. But she was excellent!!! Thank you
Always a favorite. The food is consistently good. They have the nicest servers (Chris ♥️), a very hands on, hard working female owner (Jessie) and by far the best patio in town.
Thank you Beth for the great review! We love serving you!
Nice night to sit outside with friends and enjoy the cooler air...
Our food was very good, but we took friends for his birthday, mentioned it several times to our server and nothing.....no mention, no dessert offerings.....so a little disappointing!
Every food item was amazing. Will definitly visit again soon!
Great but baked potato was not done
Poor parking options.
Few draft options. .
Great food, service. Ordered salmon, blackened very good. Daughter ordered chicken fettuccine and said was delicious. Another person ordered fish - cod and was delicious. Highly recommend!!!
The food was good but the facility itself was not what we thought it would be. The ceiling had stains near the air vents and the AC didn’t seem to be functioning well. They had fans going but it was still pretty warm inside.
Service was great & so was the food
Their patio dinning was a great experience. We had steak and sea bass, both very good. Service was great. My second visit and we will go back.
Nice ,good food , waitress very nice and good ,will be back
Excellent special of smothered steak medallions. Fish and chips were breaded with a light breading.
The bread was stale. And we had to send back our drinks. They were not right. The waitress brought us a second drink and they were all right.
We go to LA Cafe often and always great service and food! They do a great job and the patio is among the best on north side of Indy.
Food and service are always great!
Server (Heather) was cheerful and attentive. Food was great with nice presentation. I had the prime-rib, wife had scampi both we excellent and more than ample.
Love LA cafe ! Always consistent and the best pork tenderloin in town !!
Although we don't get there often, it's always one of our favorites. The food is always great, drinks are cold and tasty, love the patio seating, and Jess and staff are always welcoming! We will be back...hopefully sooner rather than later!
As always, great food and service couldnt find a parking space had to park down the street
The waitress must have been new. With little or no experience.
Great food and excellent service!
Got the carrot cake to take home for dessert and it was awesome!
The waitress brought my dinner 20 minutes before my husband’s dinner! We had to ask for more water and remind her she forgot to bring our bread to the table.
Fast friendly service fried chicken dinner was excellent!
Very good as always. Look forward to our return visit.
Christine was great
Excellent! Food and atmosphere was second to none! The staff was very friendly and accommodating. I’ll be back often. I highly recommend!
