    For the price, this restaurant is underwhelming. The food was okay but not anything special. A steak we ordered as medium rare was served well done. They offered to remake it but it was still served at medium. The pork chop was the best dish we ordered followed by the flatbread appetizer. They do not have a dessert menu and we were quite shocked to find a large piece of cake was $19.

    Wonderful experience, food was fantastic. Service was 5 stars and very attentive. If I had to give any advice, would be that it would have been nice to have some bread before the meal came out. We will be back for sure.

    We enjoyed a wonderful Easter Buffet. Our reservation was for a 1 pm seating and we seated immediately upon arriving at the restaurant. The Buffet included an omelet station with 4 other breakfast items. There was a beef and ham station, along with a large variety of side dishes, a salad bar and desert table. One of the largest buffets that I’ve seen in a long time. The comments I heard from the other diners all agreed with me. The food was delicious. Our server was very attentive in removing the dirty plates & refilling our beverages. This was their first Easter Buffet & I’m hoping that they will offer other holiday buffets in the future.

    I came here for my boyfriend's birthday. When we arrived there was not many people. Music started playing once more people arrived and that was really nice. Our server was hard to understand and she recommended me a drink after I told her I liked sweet drinks. Well the drink she gave me was the most bitter and sour drink on the menu. We got our food and it was super tasty! We really wanted dessert and she said they had crème brûlée for birthdays but we also wanted a piece of cake to go. She said that would be fine and came back with just the piece of cake to go. She said after giving us the bill and us seeing she charged us for the cake and didn't even give us the crème brûlée she would then take off the piece of cake. We were SO confused why we weren't given the crème brûlée and were about to be charged for a piece of cake for his birthday. She gave him a candle firecracker with nothing to go with it. I'm NEVER coming here again. Our server was Danielle R. HORRIBLE AND NEVER AGAIN COMING HERE! I won't be asking for any gift cards from here and I most definitely won't be going to get anyone a gift card for dinner here ever again. What a shame. Over $140 meal with crap service!

    I love everything about LaLa’s except the noise level in the bar on busy evenings with the piano. People talk very loudly in order to be heard by their table mates. It’s still a favorite venue so we continue to go back!
