On a Saturday evening we got there at 6:30 before the jazz musicians started playing (at 7:30); the service was very friendly, the food came out very quickly and it was tasty but the portions were small for the price (3 scallops for $30). Wines-by-the-glass were expensive ($9 to $12) with just a few unimpressive choices. Unfortunately the speakers blared oldies music that was too loud and not consistent with a fine dining concept. Half way thru our dinner three large groups arrived, the service went down hill and the noise level got uncomfortably loud. Our bill for two people (2 salads, 2 entrees, 1 glass of wine) with tax and tip was $105 -- about $25 overpriced. Clearly Laporta's is all about the jazz music and they've been doing it successfully for a long time. But if you're going just for the food, there are many better places nearby for a more enjoyable dining experience.
