Always a delight to eat at Ladera's. Love sitting outside. Feel like I am in my own backyard. Service is always impeccable. Salads are the best, desserts too!

Lunch was great, but Wait staff need to KEEP THEIR EYES UP and be more attentative. Not sure what was going on, but each time a server walked by, we couldn't get their attention. This was a weekday lunch. Most people need to get back to work. 1) needed server to come back and take our order, 2) needed to request some sauce from the server, 3) needed server to bring our check. Each time someone walked nearby, we were ignored. They were all in a fog or something. Hello!!! Wake Up!

I have been to Ladera since opened (Ragoots was also a good place). It has always been a good experience with the knowledge going in that it's a busy popular restaurant in town. Over the years the service has varied because it is so busy. This time it was just plain awful. The server appeared new and we only saw her (Gabby):

1. When she took our order.
2. When a runner brought our meal (after a prolonged wait 20-25 minutes) and we mentioned that our salads were never brought out . She appeared and blurted out, over my shoulder, that she would make it up to us with complimentary dessert.
3. Shortly after our dishes were bused she drops a chocolate bun and vanilla bean ice cream on our table and scurries away.

Don't get me wrong she was young and probably felt like she was doing the right thing but this was insulting at so many levels. First of all, aside from the fact that I don't particularly like chocolate I can afford to order my own dessert. There were 3 of us at the table and I'm not in the habit of sharing food at a restaurant.

I know people make their living via tips at restaurants and I left 15% instead of the normal 20-25%. I walked away figuring I just wouldn't be back with all the choices we now have in Morgan Hill however a review was in order.

It was our Anniversary and we had an outstanding dinner!
Started with the happy salad, fresh and delicious. Then we had the oysters Tm Rockafella , to die for! If you love oysters this is a must to try! We both had Fruitidamari
simply perfect, best I’ve ever had! Thank you Tony, you rock✅

I've always enjoyed going to Ladera for a nice weekend meal. The food is always great, and the staff is always friendly. I think the only disappointment for me was that this was a special occasion, being we were celebrating our 16th wedding anniversary. And yet, there was never a mention, anything special, or any notion that we were just another family out to dinner on a Friday. We will return to Ladera, because the food is always on point even though the regular menu hasn't changed in years. However I don't believe we would have another really special day for our family here in the future.

We have dined here on numerous occasions. This was probably the best meal we have had here. I had salmon on a wood plank with wild rice and steamed vegetables. My wife enjoyed halibut with wild rice and steamed vegetables. She started her meal with the house salad and really enjoyed. We each had a cocktail and enjoyed the drinks prior to our meal. Looking forward to our next visit. As a sidelight, we used our $10.00 off coupon from Open Table. Great lunch!

I've been a couple of times now within 2 weeks of each visit. The first time was with girlfriends. The server wasn't very attentive, we had to pour our own wine and my friend and I both ordered the Beef Wellington, hers medium, mine medium rare - I believe they got them mixed up, despite us confirming the order. Then I went on a date the following week. He ordered the Seafood Bouillabaisse and I had the Halibut stuffed with crab both on the special menu. When his came out, if wasn't Seafood Bouillabaisse but something else, they placed my plate down and left with his. I was trying to find a waiter to ask them to take mine back as I wasn't going to eat without him. Once I did finally track the server down, he said yes of course I'll have the chef make you a new one. Well my same dish came out and it was luke warm at best. By the time the server came back to ask how everything was I was half way through my meal. They did give us an extra glass of wine to split for the mistakes. The food is great but if only they could sort out this out . I will try for the third time, lets hope it will be the lucky one!

Ladera Grill is the best restaurant Morgan Hill. It's really a great place. Quality foods, attentive servers, up-scale ambiance, and great steaks. Has the right stuff for sides like Creamed Spinach, Potatoes in many interesting ways, wide selection of appetizers good for sharing and great deserts. Morgan hill needed a really high quality place to go and now they have it. Puts a lot of San Jose/Palo Alto and Los Gatos places to shame.

Not cheap, but worth the price. Give it a try!

Food was good but I ordered my Beef Wellington medium rare and my friend ordered medium, I think they got them mixed up. Waiter was somewhat attentive. Our wine glasses were empty and I had to pour the bottle. I would've expected him to do so given the price per dish as this place. Still the food is good and I'll be back to try other things and hopefully another waiter!

I frequently order the very, berry Mojito. This was the first time I had to return, it was horrible. The bartender who prepared the Mojito did not know what he was doing. Other than that, everything else was FINE.
