Our first time here. Pleasantly surprised with variety and quality of menu items. We had 8 in our party. Three of us got the red snapper special, which they reported as excellent. One got the Pasta Rustica. I had it and it was spicier than expected. I took 1/2 of it home. It needed additional cheese or some cream to lighten the sauce. One had the Parmesan crusted pork loin, one a pork tenderloin sandwich, another the fried shrimp dinner and the last the chicken pasta. Our waitress was outstanding! The place was at near capacity with both dining rooms nearly full.
We look forward to coming back and trying different items.

It was our second visit to LA Cafe, this time for lunch. We had a wonderful meal -- one of the best pork tenderloin sandwhich I've had. . .and my wife's tacos, even though they were the wrong ones, were outstanding (they comped us for the tacos). We will definitely be back.

LA Cafe is such a fun, unique neighborhood restaurant. The food is simple and delicious and the staff is great. My friend and I were so deep in conversation that we didn't notice the restaurant had emptied. But we never felt hurried. In fact we were encouraged to enjoy our time. THANK YOU!

Everything was great. There were 2 large parties ( one with about 5-6 elementary kids and it got very loud which there is really nothing that can be done about that. And it will not keep us from going there at least once a week

LA Cafe posted on Facebook to get Christmas Eve reservations in and we were looking for new traditions since our boys are older and in college. LA Cafe is a favorite of ours so it was a no brainer to book a reservation. The food was delicious as always and the service was excellent! It’s always so hard to choose what to order because everything is so good. Thank you LA Cafe!

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.

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.

Great Bread!
