I go here as much for the atmosphere as the food. The food first: an inventive and fun menu, fresh fresh fresh ingredients, excellent presentation. Oh, and they know their wines. The atmosphere: great buzz without being overwhelmingly loud. Even when the place is completely full - like...usually - you can have a conversation without straining to hear. The wait... More

Each time I visit Laci's, it is a great experience. The food is always good, very creative dishes, always delicious and best of all is the friendly, accommodating atmosphere. The owners, Laura and Cindy are almost always there, and go out of their way to make you feel welcome and appreciated. Laci's is one of the best restaurants I have... More

I tried the Basil Vodka Gimlet and ended up having two. Quite tasty! Next we shared the Pow Shrimp, Shrimp skewered and properly cooked. Sauce a little bland for the hot rating. Good, but not spectacular. Followed that with the Mediterranean Flat bread which was tasty. Next meaty perfectly cooked lamb chops with a small amount of a side chutney.... More

I always look forward to local dining when traveling for business. We picked Laci's from a Yelp review and were not disappointed. Great service and we tried a little bit of many things. Loved the dates and creme brulee.

It pains me to write this, since we have had some pretty good experiences here. Went the other night and it was disappointing...the food was spotty...some dishes were warm, other dishes were cold...The mac and cheese in particular most likely sat out for 20 minutes before it was served....The table that we sat at (corner straight ahead when you walk...

I recently went out to dinner at Laci's with friends and was expecting a great experience as I always receive. Our waiter was wonderful...he knew the menu very well and had a fabulous personality. My Sangria was delicious! Our tapas was generally good except our beef was over-charred and our cordon bleu bites came out freezing cold. They were gracious... More

Found Laci's on tripadvisor on the way to a college visit to Syracuse University with my son and husband. The fabulous reviews and varied food and wine menu drew us in on our trip up. I recommend calling ahead and making a reservation in advance. We visited on a Thursday evening with an 8:15 reservation and the restaurant was packed.... More

I attended a wedding reception in the room upstairs. Every dish served was both beautiful and delicious. The bar tenders and serve staff were among the best I've ever experienced. If you are ever in the area you must try Lacy's

Nice change from average restaurants. The choice of tapas is varied and interesting. The menu should have listed where the tapa's derived from. The meatballs (a real pleasant surprise) from were else. Nagamki (a little overcooked) Japan, etc. Four of us ordered 5 tapa's, 4 would have been enough. Very nice wine menu. Reasonable cost for a nice evening. Oh... More

We actually traveled in from Georgia for a getaway and found Laci's via TripAdvisor. We really wanted to find places we couldn't find at home. Its a neat location; looks like a house among houses. We walked in to find they were full with reservations, butshe offeredfor us to sit at the bar if we'd still like to try it... More
