    I have been going to Lalime's for many years and it serves consistently good food, has excellent service and atmosphere. The price point is excellent given quality of food and presentation.

    Our salad came without dressing and the Brussels sprouts were cold. Both had to be sent back.

    My boyfriend and I were very disappointed in the food. The Cesar salad leaves were very large and difficult to cut in the bowl they were served in and the dressing did not taste homemade. The leek and beet salad was ok not very flavorful. The lamb chop was supposed to be cooked medium and was well done and poorly seasoned. The Egyptian bean stew was ok, nothing to write home about. The apple gallette was boring with poor presentation where the crust was folded over the apples too much , low flavor and the lava cake again not very flavorful. All food seemed to lack seasoning and because my boyfriend has been coming for maybe 20 years he could not believe that everything was either average or poor tasting. The service was good and the atmosphere was nice and sound level nice so you could hear your table mate. Doubtful we will return and will not recommend to any friends. Not sure if it was a bad night or the quality has just gone downhill overall. What a shame.

    Excellent food. Lettuce cups with fresh crab were unexpectedly delicious! Amazing dessert. Wait staff was attentive and fast.

    We have been going to Lalime's since it opened and seen many staff come and go, but right now they are at an all time high for excellent menu choices and delicious food. I am reluctant to be too complimentary in case it's hard to get a reservation in the future. I love Lalimes!
