Really nice place to get dinner. Food and service are good. I like to try out their specials and was never disappointed
A Santa Cruz gem. The pizzas are authentically Italian and every dish is thoughtfully prepared and well executed, even the bread basket. The roasted pork loin I had was succulent with deep flavors and the perfectly braised celery root it came with was an great pairing. It seems they have a standard that the vegetables must be perfect coming into the kitchen before they’re ever considered for your plate. Bravo!
Outstanding as usual
La Posta is one of the best restaurants in the Monterey Bay area and over the hill too! A delight to visit. Aaron, our waiter is always friendly and personable, and he's very attentive. Everyone there is actually. And the food is soo amazing. It's light, delicate flavors, complex, and balanced. I do recommend La Posta to my friends and others all the time.
We had a wonderful Valentines Day dinner at La Posta and they never disappoint! The food was so fresh, extremely creative and the service was on point. I loved every bit of the experience. Always a special place to dine.
The Food presentation and taste was off the Charts.
We will definitely be back.
Valentine's Day pris fixe menu, 3 choices/3 courses. Food well prepared, interesting combinations of several ingredients in each course.
Great as always! la Posta is a neighborhood restaurant for us so we’re able to enjoy dinners there several times each year. la Posta is consistently very good. From bread (and it’s incredibly good bread— they do their own from long term starter) to dessert, they know how to prepare and serve an excellent meal.
Loved it. Subtle but special. Bread was amazing. Really a lovely surprise!!
Ingredients were beautifully sourced- all very fresh and high quality, and everything we had tasted great
This was our second time here and the noise level this time was appalling!! You could hardly hear the musicians in the background. It did improve a bit later in the evening, however. The food, though, was as fantastic as before and we weren’t disappointed!! My partner’s smoked cod appetizer was fabulous and we also recommend the brussel sprout pizza . The pizza may sound weird, but it also has light Italian bacon and onion on it and it is really, really good. And I don’t like brussel sprouts and I’m saying this!!! The waiter hovered over us a little too much, like he was trying too hard, and we basically just told him to go away for awhile. Then everything was just fine. Everything was served in a timely manner, and at the right temperature. Also, on Open Table, we requested a widow seat and this wasn’t honored. I know they were busy, but they made no effort that I could tell to hold a table for us when people that had just gotten there were seated at the window. They did say the musicians would be standing there, but it doesn’t account for the 2 ladies who had obviously just been seated. Maybe that’s their policy. It is a neighborhood style restaurant and quite relaxed about things. But, overall, we had a good time and we recommend this place for loud relaxation!! We’ll undoubtedly be back because things change.
Four local friends: much enjoyed Tues "neighborhood night" with generous portions of well composed salad, interesting pizza (prosciutto!), pasta (porcini!), nice wines by the glass. A real bargain of quality food and attentive service at 18 bucks per person. Live instrumental music, tho the background ambience was on the noisy side. We'll definitely keep returning.
Only two servers for entire restaurant creating extremely long waits between coarses in addition to empty water glasses along with other service issues.
While the portions were small compared to the price of the dish, the food was quite delicious. I had a pickled herring appetizer with beets which was truly divine, but cost $14 for 2 herring, 3 slices of beets and a sparse garnish of greens. The brisket entree with horseradish gremolata was rich and luscious but there were two small slices served over a small amount of sautéed greens for $28. Ultimately, while I enjoyed every bite, I left hungry. Combined with a mixed bag of staff friendliness, hard seating, and a very loud atmosphere that was not particularly warm nor welcoming, I will likely choose to explore other local restaurants that offer a better overall value than this one. Happy I tried it though!
I LOVE La Posta. It's my number one favorite restaurant in Santa Cruz.
Great Santa Cruz dining. Homemade pasta, bread, desserts ... innovative menu, great service and a vegan option to boot.
Just GREAT! It is always nice to find you like something new savor.
The food was very salty, it was very expensive and not worth it.
We had a thoroughly enjoyable family meal. Food was creative, some local ingredients were used (interesting citrus, chanterelles, fresh walnuts, step ladder cheese, etc., etc.). Kudos to the kitchen. Our previous trip to Santa Cruz we'd unfortunely dined at the companion restaurant Soif Wine Bar which left much to be desired...
Always fabulous in every way. If you haven't tried La Posta, you are missing something special!
