This place is pretty good. I like that their menu is pretty diverse and they offer sustainable seafood. I've been here many times and I like the seared ahi salad and the shrimp tacos are awesome.

...Located in Del Monte Shopping Center in Monterey, close to the multiplex movie theater, Lalla is the perfect place to meet, see and be seen. The decor is very comfortable. I hear the drinks are good, which is not surprising since their affiliated restaurant, Lallapalooza, also in Monterey, is known for their fabulous drinks. The guacamole and polenta dishes were...

Lallas hosted a graduation dinner on their patio for my son from college... Way surpassed our expectations! The management and servers went out of their way to help us have an evening everyone enjoyed. Their buffet was delicious, with something for everyone. Ahi wonton appetizers to polenta, to sliders! Great food, atmosphere and FRIENDS!

We were a group of 10 and they handled our group at dinner very well. Tasty food and good service. One favorite at the table was the quinoa salad that comes with yummy cheesy bread.

We had a weekday dinner here, no reservation, and were seated right away. Nice menu, Jose was a knowledgeable server on menu choices, and we all enjoyed our night out.

We stumbled across this establishment while visiting Carmel and Monterey, CA. The menu is awesome and the food as well. A must try! Also, the prices are good compared to restaurants in Carmel. Very upscale establishment!
