Excellent food and attentive service, but one mistake with the food, and a mix-up with the bill. Otherwise definitely five stars.

Had a great lunch experience. One of the diners requested a gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan meal and several accommodations were kindly made. The waitress was extremely patient. The birthday dessert was super! Will definitely return soon.

The service is very good, the food is lacking, which was very disappointing. My wife ordered the salmon special (pistachio crusted) it was dry, and flavorless. The rice was also dry, with hard pieces. I ordered the cioppino (special), too much pasta, and not a lot of flavor. If they step up their game in the kitchen, this would be a nice restaurant option in Morgan Hill.

We had lunch here for a special celebration and were extremely disappointed. My husband had one of the daily specials which was Lasagna and it tasted like tomato soup was used as the main base. We split a wedge salad.amd the blue cheese dressing was among the worse we have ever had. My terriyaki salmon was fair to good....overall very disappointing for what was to be a special lunch.

I left a lengthy review on Yelp if you care to read it. Highlights: Pushy waiter, slow response to requests. Beef Wellington had spinach, no pate or duxelles. Was Not puff pastry more like pie pastry. So sad. Even the dessert was grade school level. 350.00 check plus a tip that he didn’t deserve. You’ve lost my patronage

It’s was my husbands birthday 🎂. I wrote it in on open table it was his birthday 🎂. I again told the girl at check in and told her I had requested a booth, she said first come first service, what the heck!!’ Ok, so we sit at a table in the middle of the floor, no problem. I tell the waiter again we’re celebrating my husbands birthday 🎂
We finish dinner and quickly get our bill! So, no birthday 🍰 and candle???????? WTHeck !!!!!!!!!! I was furious!!

We have been to Ladera in the past and it was lovely. This time the food was just ok, and they sat us in the banquet room in the corner. We asked to be moved to the window, for which they accommodated us. The overall experience was a let down. I’ve spoken to other people as well who said it’s very hit and miss.....

Wanted to get some scallops and Ladera has been good in the past. Was not disappointed as they were seared perfectly and tasted great. It is always nice when your expectations are fully met.

Service was great as waiter did everything he could to make the dinner very enjoyable.

Always a great meal in a relaxed setting. Sometimes, hard to plan ahead enough on a weekend to get dinner reservations before 8PM, so an early Sunday night dinner was perfect for us. Our waiter allowed us to relax and enjoy our apps and drinks before ordering dinner....relaxed dining, just what we like.

Very poor service from Ladera. I made the reservation for my Legal Counsel and two business guests. After waiting for 25+ minutes for their lunch order, calling the waiter over to inquire, he said the order was LOST, so had to re-enter and expedite the order. Waiting 15+ more minutes for food to arrive. This was on a normal, not excessively busy, lunch time. No offer of beverage refills or on-the-house deserts. Very disappointingly poor service from Ladera.

Always enjoy dining at Ladera. Adam was a very attentive waiter and offered menu suggestions upon request. I chose the Pork Picatta and it was delicious -- flavorful and tender. My only disappointment was that upon delivery the dish was just warm. I would have expected it to come to the table with more heat. Not sure why this happened but still enjoyed the meal.

What a surprising find in Morgan Hill. The dining room was well above average. The food was simply outstanding. My wife had shrimp risotto and I have the Petrale sole. Both dishes were excellent. Service was great. Plus, they have a great wine list. As a side note, I lived in South San Jose in the late 1960s and I remember the mostly rural Morgan Hill about 10 miles to the south just beyond Coyote. I kept mentioning to my wife "this is Morgan Hill?" This food would match anything in San Francisco. We'll be on business again in the area next week. we know where we will be going for dinner.

I was in Morgan Hill for my friends birthday and she chose Ladera Grill. The wine selections were fairly extensive and we were pleased with our choices. We each ordered a special - Tri-tip and chicken cordon Bleu. They we’re both delicious! I only wish the lights were toned down a bit - it was a bit bright for the evening. When I made the reservation on Open Table, I indicated that the visit was for a birthday. I never mentioned anything to the staff when we arrived, but obviously they pay attention to the online reservations! They surprised us with ice cream in a beautiful presentation. I was very impressed by this! Overall a very lovely evening!

We were disappointed with the oysters Rockefeller which have been so excellent the last couple of times we had them. This time it seemed like all spinach and breadcrumbs with no oysters in sight. Please do not serve them if they’re not going to be up to par.
Additionally, we poured our own champagne throughout dinner and my husbands meal was not hot.

I love appetizers so my whole dinner was just appetizers. I love the coconut shrimp and Brie dish. I didn’t like the avocado spring rolls at all. I think they would taste better if they were done Vietnamese style and not deep fried. My husband had the osso bucco. He was very happy with his choice.

This was our first time at Ladera Grill. The service was exceptional, and the food delicious! We both got salads that were prepared so artistically. The complimentary bread was perfect! For dessert, we tried the apple cheesecake wrapped in pastry. Another beautiful presentation! Everything was delicious, and we look forward to going back again.

My friend and I wanted to take our special out-of-town guest to the best restaurant in Morgan Hill and we quickly chose Ladera Grill. We both have been there many times...so we felt comfortable in our decision. And it was. Dinners were outstanding...with great and attentive service. We truly enjoyed it. Well done.
