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!

The setting for the 'California' food is quite contemporary and stylish. However, that's where our satisfaction with the restaurant ended. Our food was 'average' at best. It did not meet our expectations for quality -- perhaps it was just what we ordered - the chicken enchiladas were not authentic as noted, and my husband's Asian ribs were sparse on the... More

Love Lalla Grill's happy hour menu with all sorts of tasty morsels to choose from! Their raw oysters are always fresh and sweet so we usually order a dozen while choosing side dishes like steak bites, garlicky fries, lobster bisque (yum!), pizza, and beer.

I have always planned on hitting this place at least once each time I am in the area. I recently went there with the family and our expectations were not met. Our meals were all subpar. In fact, I asked for chicken enchiladas with verde sauce and got red sauce so I sent it back. My wife's red sauce was... More

In a Shopping Mall, it's usually tricky to find decent food, but the Lalla Grill at the Del Monte Centre in Monterey is quite good. The banquettes are reminiscent of a Diner, and the ambience is clean and fun. Our salads were tasty though not spectacular. The cheese bread served on the side is good and could almost be called...

For those in Monterey looking for a fun place to eat I would recommend Lalla Grill. It kind of reminds of the Cheesecake Factory, huge menu, big portions and not overpriced. Beats most of the expensive golf clubs in taste too.

I don't get crazy over salads but their Pistachio Chicken Salad earns this place 5 stars. The atmosphere is sleek, modern, yet comfortable and inviting. The wait staff were friendly and efficient, yet not over bearing. But the salad...oh the salad is the yummiest thing ever. I ordered the salad because I thought it sounded good, I asked the waitress... More

This soup is on the menu everyday . I am never disappointed with anything I order from Lalla..They have a great selection... More

A friend and I had a quick lunch bite at the Lalla Grill. I had their Caesar Salad... a nice innovation -- different look, but same great taste. Their Caesar Salad is served on a flat plate with main ingredients laid out for you to mix the flavors as you see fit: Romaine in the middle flanked by large pieces... More
