Good place for after the movies

Very sleek décor. Open fairly late so perfect for after the movie. We had quite good calamari. Tasty and tender.

A really varied menu, it was so hard to choose. Family friendly, clean AND great tasting meal in a very relaxing and aesthetically pleasing environment. I would like to transplant this restaurant to my hometown.

This place was overpriced for the value of the food and service. Lunch was $$$ for fish tacos, a burger, and two beers! Won't go there again. Sat US by the very noisy kitchen.

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. We saw the food court and nothing really sparked our liking until we saw Lalla. It's located directly across form the theater and is perfect for pre-show after-show meals/snacks.... More

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"...
