    Had reservations for 1 and table was ready upon arrival. Little chilly out on covered patio. So very happy with the cauliflower pizza crust but a little expensive of an up charge for this pizza crust. Looking forward to going back for the cauliflower crust

    I know the restaurant is struggling so it is tough for me to give it an average review. In short, the presentation of the food is fine but the flavor is lacking. For the price, I expect more. With so many other great options in the area, I doubt we will eat there again.

    They are unconcerned is your are happy with food and they don’t show respect with normal bills - they just tell u the amount and expect payment. Plus tips to pay start at 20%. Hard to even get a receipt to know why u paid over $150 for 4 people

    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.

    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

    Grilled Mac and cheese was very disappointing. Noodles on toast, very little cheese. Probably won’t go back.
