Went to dinner with my family for my third time in a year, due to a meeting in the hotel. Previously having a bad experience, THIS TIME WAS SUPERB. Food, costumer service, beautiful place. It was an experience. I really recommend this place for dinner..

All the service we experienced at this property was subpar. We had to continually call our waiter over for more water, take our order, where's our food, how about a 2nd drink, etc. The staff is busy tending to the local clientele.

The service was good, the atmosphere is comfortable and tasteful. I was nervous after eating the first course of bland beef carpaccio, but the tropical salad, red snapper with orange sauce, and spicy skirt steak was soooo perfectly done.

Both husband and I had a fish entree. Both dishes were absolutely fresh and delicious! Celebrated my husband's birthday! At no extra charge, they treated him to a fancy dessert complete with a candle! Very nice touch.

We were mistreated by the owner after my wife found two hairs in our dinner. He questioned her credibility and angrily pointed his finger close to her face. He cursed at us telling us to get the f_ _k out of his Resturant. My wife is a petite woman of retirement age. She was afraid and embarrassed. Even though my... More

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.
