Come regularly here on business, so I know this restaurant quite well. It seems that they might have changed chef. The mushroom Madeira sauce turns out to be just balsamic reduction sauce and mushroom slices on the side, not cooked together. Too much mash potato.

If you want fine dining - you're at the right place. I used to "treat" myself every now and again. The fine dishes, the fine wines and the fine silver service. It was good to see the younger members of staff performing excellently and dealing with classy customers with class themselves.

We enjoyed a wonderful, quiet meal at LA Cava surround our stay at the Ponce Hilton. The wine selections were first class, any wine aficionado would be in heaven. The food was prepared perfectly, the service was exceptional and attentive This was our second visit to LA Cavaliers and it did not disappoint.

But when the main dish arrived two of the steak were not on the correct term. We send the steak back twice, feeling... More
