If they still have the pork belly available on their specials I would avoid this. For $9 even at a happy hour sized plate there were four tiny pieces of the pork and I know it's fatty but it shouldn't ALL be fat. Ordered a nice dinner salad that wasn't on the menu suggested by the server. Overpriced ice tea... More

We had heard about this restaurant and though we would give it a try. Ordered French Onion soup which was served very over heated. There was plenty of onions but no broth and the crust was so dried out that you could not get a spoon through it returned the order and asked for some broth to be added. Second... More

Finding a cozy, private banquet room on the west side of town that didn't charge for use of the room, wasn't "frumpy", and didn't use picnic tables as the seating arrangements, used to be impossible. But now Lapellah has just opened a banquet room that is available for private events (looks like it could seat up to 30+ guests). The... More

This contemporary restaurant has a nice menu for lunch and dinner all week long. Happy Hour has some real bargains and can make for a very nicer early dinner. Sunday (get on the mailing list so you know what's being served) dinner for two is currently $30 and includes a starter and entrée served family style. If you like hwat's... More

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
