Very disappointed. Waited 20 minutes to order drinks, then delivered 15 minutes later. Another couple waited 30 minutes for their meal. We paid our bill and left without ordering dinner.

Heard from a friend about LA Cafe and decided to try it. We had a lovely table outside. Their flowers/ferns are gorgeous. The staff we encountered were very attentive and sweet. Food was delicious. Rib were outstanding. Will definitely go back!

Our server was very attentive & helpful. The food was just “ok.” The fillet was good portion, 8/oz. but really didn’t have much flavor. The prime rib special that was also ordered was a good sized portion but again not much flavor. Salads were pretty basic, iceberg((head) lettuce. Overall, pricing was comparable to many places but food was lacking flavor or seasoning.

Lasagna and Sea Bass didnt seem to be their specialty. Lasagna was cold and bland the sea bass was tough. The server needs training had to ask for everything then wait.

The restaurant itself is very quaint and the outside patio is decorated beautifully and comfortably . Love the atmosphere of Whitestown as well. The food was good, but not outstanding. Highly recommend the stuffed mushrooms and the lasagna was very good as well. Two others had the chicken parmesan and fish special and said they were just ok. Fortunately we were in no rush that evening. Before seeing a server, after 10 minutes at the table, a couple next to us asked for their server who they had not seen in 30 minutes! The food came out quickly once we ordered but it became a cometic show after that. The waitress said the special was Snapper but when the kitchen server set the plate down, she said it was Sea Bass. She also apologized that they were out of bread for the other meals, only to bring Texas toast with the lasagna. A beer showed up that was not ordered and 3 different request for items never came. We were having too much fun with all this to complain, but, I would recommend a little staff training for the future. We would not go out of our way to return.

Food is high quality and plentiful. Outdoor seating is relatively new and adds to safety, although the front porch abuts Main St and very limited parking. The waiters were extremely busy and thus a bit slow.

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!

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.

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.
