    I cannot say enough good things about La Merenda. We celebrated my son’s graduation here and the staff was very accommodating. We were seated outside which was perfect. The food was AMAZING! Top favorites were the Argentinian beef, the empanadas, and the truffle potato skins. Everyone in our party raved about the food and the experience overall.

    Love this place. Wish they would take down the covid partitions at the bar though, they don’t really serve a purpose anymore

    Our night was overall very good. A couple of the options were a tad bit on the salty side. Didn’t ruin the overall experience. Will definitely go back.

    Amazing experience as always! We had a bottle of wine -- love the half priced Mondays -- ceviche, mushroom quesadillas, goat cheese curds (a must), and a daily special. Crem brulee with toasted granola on top for dessert was awesome too. Service is always top notch.

    Always pleased to dine at La Merenda. The new item on the menu, the char, was outstanding. All other menu items were very good - the patatas bravas, the shrimp & pork tostada, the Argentinian beef. The special was a bit on the salty side. Can't wait for nicer weather so we can enjoy the beautiful patio.
