Every thing was great—we eat here often and have introduced many friends to the restaurant. We’re never disappointed.
The experience was immaculate, outstanding, beautiful and very pleased with everything aspect of our dinner.
Atmosphere was excellent, the server was friendly and attentive, food was outstanding. We have the Filet Tips special, which was cooked perfectly. Live Jazz was impeccable and added to the romantic dinner. Laporta is our go-to restaurant for date night, special occasions or gathering with friends.
The food was delicious and well prepared and the jazz singer was outstanding. A unique dining establishment!
As a venue for business lunch, Laporta's Restaurant is excellent. The ambience is tasteful; excellent food and courteous service; convenient parking; and, the noise level perfect for business discussion.
It was our first visit and it was my husband's 65th birthday. Frankie, our server, was so informative and friendly providing great information about the restaurant's history and menu. Loved the pianist. We were there on April 9, and took advantage of the Monday & Tuesday Specials. 50% discount on all bottles of wine was awesome!
We will definitely be returning.
Food was great but $36 was a little pricey for the special of braised beef tips.
Wonderful service and great food. Except for the mahi mahi, the portions were perfect size. Sauces are a bit spicy - would be nice if they were optional or offered on the side. Also, side choices are entree specific. A choice would be nice. Even so, we enjoyed our evening here. The bar was noisy, but it was the semi-final March Madness game, so maybe on other nights it’s a bit quieter?!
Enjoyable dinner with live music. Very nice music not too loud. Food was great but service a bit slow. I would go again.
This is the second time I’ve been to Laporta’s. Their food , specifically any pasta dish , is amazing. I got the chicken envoltine which came with potato wedges this time verses the mushroom pudding the first time. My dad had the salmon fettuccine, mom had the tuna marte, and boyfriend had the chicken fettuccine. I tasted everyone’s haha.. my only dislike was the sauce on the chicken envoltine was a tad salty . Everything else was delicious
I only have service 3 stars because when we arrived we were not told about the specials by the server nor did he bring the table any bread . We also decided to stay a little longer after dinner to listen to the music and have a few more cocktails but the server never returned to our table. I understand was has initially asked for the check but as we continued to sit he could have at least circled back around.
Frankie the waiter/bartender made some great food suggestions! The steaks were cooked & cut perfectly. The appetizer (Chesapeake Bay fresh oysters) & sides were delectable. Frankie whipped up a special request cocktail, a Mexican Martini and it was as good as the ones in Texas! Would definitely recommend.
Food very good as usual.
We stop there every 6 months when we come to meetings in Alexandria.
An Alexandria gem. Great service, good food and wonderful jazz! The only complaint was the slow service; our server had a party and didn’t have time to tend to us in a timely manner. He took so long to bring. Desert menu that we didn’t order.
As usual, service was excellent, the menu exciting and the food fantastic. And free parking!
Great place to try if you love live jazz music. Is a bit noisy towards the musicians but that is expected. The food is great!!
the meat was of low Quality, the Service was too quick, you had the last spoonfull still in the mouth and the next course came. Music was great.
Great, family-owned Italian place. Food was excellent and while very traditional menu, I loved it. Lasagna. Clam sauce spaghetti. Chicken Parmigiana. Get there on Monday or Tuesday, and get this —- Two full-sizes entrees and a bottle of wine for $29.95. Not each. $29.95 in total! With an added salad and desert, we left for about $60 with tip. This is my new ‘local favorite’. And I expect to return many, many times.
We loved the music, the atmosphere, the menu selection and the cocktails oh and a nice wine list. We will return again.
We enjoyed the cuisine and the fine music! It was very enjoyaable.
Loved the music and the specials for dinner were especially good!
Good food,good music,nice place to go to. Service was very good attentive.
I took my sister there for her birthday. Everyone was so nice. The food and entertainment was great.
We had an outstanding experience. The food and the jazz were both exceptional. We look forward to returning the next time we are in town.
Monday and Tuesday nights are always great a LaPorta! The special is amazing. Anything you choose on the menu is good. The piano sets a great mood and you can beat a free bottle of wine - especially one you can take with you IF you don't finish :)
Great place for dinner. You can barely hear the live music in the bar area so I suggest sitting in the main dining room if you are wanting to enjoy the live music.
We were able to get a last minute reservation for 12 for a special birthday. Great atmosphere, great food, and great service. Live jazz but not too loud. Everyone complimented the dinner.
Outstanding food with amazing presentation. Attentive, personable waiters. Incredible jazz music. Love this place!
Service iffy at first, but once waiter engaged, things were better. Loud group of six or so should have been seated on other side of restaurant so rest of diners would not have to hear them. Entree salad was very plain.
The music was quite complimentary with the dinner, wine, and overall ambiance.
Live jazz was an unexpected treat
Superb as always. Live music is a treat
Valentine’s Day celebration, nice. Good food a bit expensive but would recommend. Bar next to dining area.
We love being there
The food was some of the best we have had since living here in the DMV. The Chefs are extremely gifted, classy, and it shows in their presentation, from the appetizers, the sauces, each bite of the entrees, and even the pairings of the wines with meals and deserts to die with and for.
Forced to eat valentines menu, which wasn’t even good. Selection was ridiculous. Squeezed in a table. Wine glasses were amateur for such a restaurant. You get an appropriate vino glass only if you order a bottle. The fact they charged $15 a head for entertainment that would be normally free if you came on regular nights was crazy. Mark up was unreal and we will never come back where we truly enjoyed Sharon Clark band and regular menu. Shame on the management for taking advantage due to Valentine’s Day.
It is always great at LaPortas
Our experience at Laporta's was, as expected, very enjoyable. Food was excellent and the service was responsive and professional. Satin Doll's performance completed the evening for a perfect Valentine's Day dinner. Will definitely be back. Thanks Laporta!
Great experience! Everybody involved with our night was perfect.
Welcome lunch for a new staff member.
Came for a nice Sunday lunch. Was not disappointed. Service was excellent. Help me forget that I was fighting a horrible head cold.
