    We had lunch. The food is delicious and both the bowl I had (salad) and the artisan pizza were creative and fresh. Ample portions. A Note: When the place first opened and we went to dinner it was literally DEAFENING, and we refused to go back. We were literally screaming at the waiter and he was screaming back at us. It was ridiculous. Then someone told us lunch was less loud and we finally tried it. I also think changes in the wall decorations have dampened some of the sound problem as it was originally all hard surfaces. So maybe we will risk dinner next time?

    Service was pleasant. Salads were amazing... delicious! We weren't as pleased with the pizza though. Requested lite cheese and 4 toppings. Received regular amount of cheese (if you like cheesy pizzas... this one you'd like.) The toppings were less than minimal which was a huge disappointment for the price and one of the toppings was totally absent. We would give it another try... maybe try a sandwich and salad next time.

    Service from Tony was not the quality we’re used to at the Lauber but other than that everything was great! Food was amazing as per usual and the drinks were wonderful too!! Apple-bees was amazing and so was the chicken and biscuits.

    It was a group of 8, and we ate outside so the noise level was not coming from the restaurant itself... The Food was excellent, has been the 3 times I've been there. Service is great and very friendly. Definitely recommend The Lauber

    Nice variety of items on the menu, but don't get the wrap--it was all bread. We waited quite a bit for our check, but I understand it was the lunch rush. If you want to have a conversation, don't sit in the outdoor seating off of LaSalle. It was really noisy.

    Very experience pizza. $30 for very few toppings.. Highest price I’ve ever paid for.. if they were at least good, but not even… Good selection of beers and outdoor seatings are the only positives I can think of for this place. Will not eat there again

    First of all our waitress was phenomenal. Her smile her attitude and service was outstanding. The food well......I ordered the prime and my daughter ordered Mac and cheese with brisket. The meat was dried out on both sandwiches. It was so dry it took a minute to chew it. The table next to us just left the food. They ordered a spinach pizza, and the spinach was raw. They took some of the spinach off and placed it on the table. They also ordered some chips that they never ate. The only thing that was worth eating was the pizza. The fries are horrible. I can keep going but you get the picture. They need a new Chef if you ask me or change the menu. The current menu is not working

    We were there for my birthday and everything was great! I had the chicken rigatoni and my husband had the burger and we both really enjoyed our food. The only downside I will say is they were out of quite a bit but that’s happening to everyone right now.

    First time for my husband (picky eater) and son to eat at The Lauber and they both loved it. My advice is to split meals so you can try more things. Everything is delicious! I was glad to have a reservation, we got right in.

    Food was great! We had a table of five but there was a lot of noise in the restaurant that made it difficult to have conversations at our own table. The waitress was also not very familiar with everything on the menu and gave vague answers to some of our questions. Will likely return though as the food quality was excellent for the price.

    Service was so slow. Our server totally ignored us it felt like. She was having a full on 10 minute conversation with the table next to us and then just walked right by us like we weren’t even there. Finally had to flag her down. This happened multiple times. Food was very good. Server was polite just not focused and not moving. Literally a 10 minute conversation. I was like pull up a seat and take a break.

    Great food, location, and outdoor space. The noise level inside is unpleasant and impossible for visiting. Need some “soft” furnishings to absorb the sound.
