The food at **Laili** is amazing. Inside was very noisy, but outside their patio was quiet and made for an excellent dinner. The wait staff were great. We had reservations, but it took a surprising amount of time to get seated. The appetizers are incredible. While food is a little expensive, it's worth every penny!

Overall I was pleased with our meals. They have a wide selection of cuisine which can mean they don’t do any particularly well but we enjoyed everything. We asked for the clam chowder in the sour dough bread bowl as an appetizer. My wife had the steak Santa Cruz and I had the chicken parmigiana. Unfortunately we were waiting quite a while and the reason became evident when everything came out at once. Our waiter was not very attentive and runners brought the food. I feel runners lends itself to generally poor service as the main waiter forgets about you and the runner has no idea what’s going on and just wants to drop off the food. The steak came out cooked as ordered although with shrimp and other various veg on top it got lost. The mashed was a let down as it came straight from the steam table, in the ice cream scooped shape. Chicken parm seemed cooked to order in a pan. Typical pasta, a bit over cooked but ok. The addition of pesto sauce on the chicken was not needed and took away from the dish. Our reservation was through open table and outdoor seating is only an option as first come first serve. Luckily they were not busy so we chose to go the deck for the view Overall a great view and decent food makes it worth while.

Tasty, well-prepared food. Traditional rather than the more nouvelle-cuisine variety available around the corner. What I especially appreciated was being accommodated for outdoor dining almost at the last minute, given the new(ish) Wave of Covid, and the attentive and friendly service. Also I love a dog-friendly **restaurant** even though I don’t have a dog!
