I was disappointed that we had a reservation and were seated in the bar area which was very loud and had sports on television instead of music. When we asked to move, we were told that the other side of the restaurant is reserved for people. We had a reservation so I am not sure what that’s about. Too bad because the other side had musicians playing which would have been better ambiance. The server was gracious enough to turn TV down for us, however the staff was congregating near the bar and they were also very loud. The tables were also way too close together. Servers couldn’t even get between them. Overall, it was a decent experience with very good food and service though.

Yesterday's dining experience, for Mother's Day, was ok but not great. My steak was not cooked per my request. Appetizers are overpriced for the quantity you get. That said, the service is always quite good; the drinks were just right; the piano music added a nice touch (wish he had played longer); and the atmosphere good for the occasion.

The staff was kind enough to move us outside. Food terrific; service exceptional; Monday and Tuesday specials are of great value. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Ordered the hangar steak which was advertised on the menu to have a bourbon sauce, WRONG!!!. The worst meal I’ve had in a long time (cold meat/steak with barbecue sauce drizzled all over it with some unappetizing mac & cheese on the side). I see plates for other patrons, who sat down way after us, come out but not ours which reassured me & my family that we’re not welcome there. NEVER AGAIN!!!

It was cooked perfectly but says it needed a little seasoning. I had the hanger steak. Cooked perfectly but covered in basically a barbecue sauce. This really took away from the natural flavor of a good steak.

I am saddened that I am just discovering this restaurant weeks before relocating and it has been here my entire life. The food was outstanding, I even smelled another diner's dish while it was being prepared and it made me envious of not sitting at that table to share. LOL We were there for a late lunch so it was pretty quiet but I have read reviews of soft live music playing and would definitely love to experience that. I am glad I chose Laporta's for my birthday celebration.

The service was perfect- attentive, (almost psychic), but not intrusive. The food was exquisite, as it always is. The Jazz combo was quite good and the volume was perfect. You could hear every not and word when you listened, but could still speak quietly. I’ve dined around the world. There is no place better.
