Perfect location, good food

We were in Monterey for a few days and decided we didn't want to eat downtown. Someone suggested we try the mall, they must have something in there. So we did.

Located in the Del Monte shopping center, we found this on our last trip, and decided it was certainly worthy of another dinner. The bar / restaurant is open, bright and family friendly. There is a great outside eating area with a fireplace that looked like fun. We went early, but by the time we left, there was a waiting... More

My 8 year old says, "Best Mac and cheese in the world." Wife loves the tacos and I love the burgers. Nice atmosphere also. We come here about once a month.

I received a holiday gift certificate and had never had dinner at Lalla Grill. What a wonderful experience! Went last Saturday early eve (5:45pmish)--party of (2). We were seated quickly, restaurant was active! Much larger than I realized, I had been before only at the bar for drinks. The server was excellent--very attentive and did not make us feel "cheap"...

We weren't terribly hungry, so shared the nacho platter. Very good, so good that we also shared a piece of southern belle carrot cake. It was wonderful! Good service too.

From different and exotic drinks as well a some tasty ales I totally recommend this spot as a place to bring your loved one for romantic night or a cocktail time with your girls! We ordered about 5 cocktails as well as two small plates... More

This restaurant is at Del Monte Shopping Center near the Cinema. The decor is inviting, and it has a beautiful bar. The staff are friendly, there is a wide selection of choice, and small plates are available if you don't want a large meal. Otherwise their portions are quite large, but you can always take home what you cannot eat.... More

Second time eating here, nearly 3 years apart, and enjoyed it both times. I had the PG Beach Burger (which was huge), which wasn't made to my order but was fixed immediately. I can't remember what my husband had, but he loved it and had no issues. They have a nice outdoor area with a fireplace. Inside, it's roomy, with... More
