Got the recommendation from our hotel and thought we would give it a try. A bit skittish about being in a mall, but quickly found it to be very comfortable. Quickly seated in the bar for some reason which was ok, but thought it was strange we were not given a choice. The food starting with the appetizer of nachos... More

We came here because we were between shopping and seeing a movie and i'm so glad we did! we just grabbed some small plates to snack on but they were very good. the buffalo wings were in a delicious hot sauce that i can only hope is made in house. Would have gotten the beef carpaccio but they were out... More

Each plate of food ordered looked like a piece of art. Every ingredient adding a new color and flavor to the dish that was, in a sense, beautiful. I love food. I know you probably love food. Looking at this food was one thing, but eating it was certainly another. I didn't expect the strange flavor combinations to be quite... More

We were staying at a Motel 8 in Monterey and found a service that delivered from this restaurant. My husband ordered the fish tacos and I ordered the chicken wrap. Usually when he has something exceptional he offers a bite to show that he picked the better meal. Not this time. He wouldn't give up one bite. He said they... More

I believe this is a family owned business and a very popular venue. Food is of good quality and there is little waiting between courses. Certainly worth a visit if you are in the area.

We tried this restaurant after reading favourable reviews on Tripadvisor and weren't disappointed. The menu was varied and well priced and all the food was delicious. We shared the chocolate fondue for dessert which came with a variety of small cakes, biscuits and fruit and was delicious!!

Great food and service,... but also make sure you get their sweet potato chips ... you will definitely need more than one serving of these special chips.

I went to LaLa's for the second time while working in Carmel. It is conveniently located in the Del Monte mall. I like this place it's bright has a great outdoor patio and most important good food! The service was wonderful as I spent a few hours there I never felt rushed and was very happy overall with the experience!... More

I have been here 12 days in the this is by far the nicest place we have eaten. the food was interestingly presented and good quality. the ambience is laid back but boutique. There is an excellent selection of food and with a vegetarian, a pescatarian and two meat eaters it is rare to find a restaurant which caters so... More

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. The service has always been good. It's not too expensive either. It's a great place for a dinner date and the movie theatre is... More
