Large portions and variety

Pleasant atmosphere, friendly and prompt service, and good food. Couldn't ask for more! Double-baked potato is a good choice but seemed a bit too creamy/smooth for my liking. The squash enchilada was an interesting choice to go with the steak. Too bad I didn't have enough of an appetite.

Had a lovely meal here on our last night in Monterey. Service was great, food tasty. Wish we'd found it earlier

Really no reservations? Terrible idea. Must be about their ego or they totally mis-understand peoples need to set times in their busy schedule. Of course the owners get to eat whenever they want to, so "let the people eat cake. Who cares I've got mine!" I wonder what their belief system is?

Went for the first time to Happy Hour last night. I have been here many times for dinner and have always enjoyed the food and the service is quite good too. Though I enjoy their drinks, I was disappointed to see that the drink selections were so limited for happy hour, if fact my friend ordered a martini...just a standard... More

Did an online order. Ordered crab cakes and Lalla's famous brando steak. Crab cakes were average. The steak was awesome. The order was delivered on time.

A group of four of us went to Lalla for dinner on a Tuesday evening. The place was busy but not packed. The menu was very large, covering everything from flatbread and burgers to pasta and steaks. Dinner for 4 came to under $80.00 for a Cobb salad, blackened chicken Alfredo, chicken flatbread, and the biggest plate of nachos that... More

We really enjoyed this place. Unfortunately, I was feeling under the weather so could not partake fully in the experience. The Decour was light, bright, and interesting. The food selection was extensive. Everything our table had was delicious.

After arriving in town in the early evening we asked the hotel front desk to recommend some place nearby with local flavor and he recommended Lalla. Good recommendation! We enjoyed our first meal in California and the interesting and varied menu. The food was good and the portions were large. The atmosphere was fresh and fun and our waitress was... More

We were looking for a non-fast food place with good prices and substantial portions. We found it here. Good quality food with interesting as well as traditional plates for many pallets. It was a fun atmosphere without being campy in its 50's diner motif. Plan to come back.

We stopped in for a quick dinner prior to taking in a movie. It was about 4:30 PM, the place was not crowded but at least ten of their tables and booths were occupied. We were seated immediately and our waiters (one in training) arrived just a couple of moments later. The waiters came back soon after the drinks were... More
