The word Lapellah supposedly means: "(adj.) roasted; (vti) to cook or roast over a fire," according to a card picked up from the restaurant several years ago. That being said, the menu serves up a short but imaginative set of dishes for breakfast/lunch. I enjoyed a nicely prepared steak salad and others in the group had the eggs benedict, the... More

As noted in other reviews, this is within walking distance of the Homewood Suites. The menu, while not extensive, was more adventuresome than I was expecting for a shopping center restaurant, and the wine list was interesting. The waiter seemed knowledgeable about the wine list as he answered my questions and helped us make what turned out to be an... More

Walked to this restaurant from the Homewood Suites about a half mile away... very pleasant surprise. Soup was excellent, my Salmon delicious and all our fare better than expected. Staff was good (though the host/hostess were rather clueless). Good value overall and definitely comfortable recommending this charming bistro.

Favorite haunt of ours, but tonight we thought we would try happy hour again. Food is consistently good, but portions are now extremely small even for happy hour. Prices reflect happy hour and are actually only a portion of the normal sizes you should receive during non happy hour dining or even lunch for that matter. We were unimpressed enough... More

I'm a local who has eaten here before for dinner and take out but after a recent lunch there I realized it has become my favorite in the area. The lunch menu seems pretty diverse but my absolute favorite is the bbq shrimp appetizer that I eat as a meal. The sauce is very unique and there's enough there for... More

Visited on a Sunday early afternoon. Found the tables to be too close together and the place quite noisy. Service was good after the wait for a server to come to the table and the food was average with slightly higher than average prices. Was recommended by an acquaintance but probably will not return.

I'm a Vancouver WA local, and Lapellah is easily my favorite restaurant in town. The atmosphere is lively, the food is delicious, and the service is great. I am a sucker for their chicken cesar salad, but I've had everything from the fish n' chips to mac n' cheese to burger to special salads. I've been here for happy hour,... More

Great variety menu, and very affordable. Go at happy hour and try several items. We tried the bacon wrapped jalapeno bites (excellent), mac and cheese (excellent), shrimp appetizer (excellent). We didn't try a burger, but they looked excellent and a lot of people were ordering them. I am an event planner and returned with a client's team of 32. They... More

The smell of wood smoke greets you out on the highway. You know it's going to be good- and they do not disappoint! This is our favorite restaurant for all of Vancouver, and most of Portland. It's a great date nite place, or for a big group. They take care of you, and it's all good!! Try the wood fired... More
