From red leather booths to a great staff this is Cafe La Maze! When you walk in wether for your first visit or 100th the staff greet you like family. The steaks are melt in your mouth and on the weekends the entertainment is top notch! We love to go on a Saturday night have dinner and listen Ray! You... More

Nice menu, great service and really good food. A great variety on the menu, fresh salads to main course. I enjoyed it very much. Very good service, clean place. You feel like a customer and guest.

Came here for dinner while in town & loved it! The food was amazing, staff was friendly & loved the old pictures of all the hollywood stars that used to go there. TV playing old movies, & live music. Would definitely recommend and go again! :)

We are visiting from out of state and wanted a good dinner close to our hotel. Cafe La Maze was ranked #2 in National City. Food was great as was the service. Prices are typical for a steakhouse supper club. We took our boys (10,13). Restaurant did not offer a kids' menu, but boys were happy with a steak burger... More

This restaurant has been around for over 60 years and still retains it's original character. It is nicely decorated and has low lighting and excellent ambiance. It has retained everything good about "old school", but is clean and the staff is excellent. The food is traditional - no crispy duck or pork belly - but it is well prepared. The... More

I had a groupon that I had to use, I honestly would have never tried it unless I had the groupon. I got the prime rib, and it was excellent!! Price with groupon was super cheap I could not believe it. Great quality!

My husband and I have had lunch a couple of times at Cafe La Maze and the food has always been excellent. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone who is looking for a nice place to eat.

This dark and cozy spot transports you to the 50's as you sit in red leather booths in a really dark (very low lighting) environment. The food is pretty good, the Salad La Maze is a delicious Shrimp Louie salad. The steaks are good. Drinks are pretty cheap. Make reservations if dining on Friday or Sat. night.

This restaurant was quite a surprise, it was in national city and the street was okay, nothing that I would have said oh wow let me go there but because we got a Groupon coupon we decided to try it. This restaurant has been around for very many years. The inside had leather seating, evening type lighting and pictures of... More

Cafe La Maze, in National City, sure locals would say "in National City?...... Saw this offer in Groupon, $20 for $40, read all the reviews so why not we are from Tucson, so try and explore other than the Gaslamp restaurants. Seeing the restaurant from the outside and neighborhood, questioned my judgement, but relied on past reviews. What a throw... More
