“Food was excellent - service was excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

Atmosphere was really exciting and lively. Service was excellent.
I ate every bite of my dinner meal (fish) - absolutely delicious.
Restaurant is well known for its wine coolers, I believe, but didn't get to try one, unfortunately. Had a great time with my friends.

“Usually great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012

We come here every few months and generally have good experiences. Most recently we went on a Tue evening, making our drinks 1/2 price and the second meal only $5. The issue this time was that the kid's meals were smaller than usual (they are usually great and very cheap). I usually get the ahi sandwich which I love (though once rare meant still frozen inside). They do french fries better than anywhere I've been. This is a very noisy place.

Good food and drinks. A great place for lunch. The servers were most helpful with the menu selections.

“Wonderful fresh combinations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

Food is delicious--fresh, organic ingredients. The taco platters are scrumptious-homemade tortillas, amazing kale slaw, absolutley delicious guacamole and salsa with your choice of fish, meat chicken or vegetarian. The swordfish is the most juicy and flavorful but others have loved the filet mignon and ahi tuna also. Another wonderful huge dish which must be shared: chicken nachos.

“DisAPPOINTED”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

Although LGO has been an above average dining spot in past visits, we found it well below average this past Monday, apparently a 2-for-1 promotion night. A cheeseburger, ordered medium, had the physical consistency and ovoid shape of a pigskin football. It's bun, soggy from the greasy discharge, was difficult to hold together. Accompanying fries were so cold, the frying oil cast a chalk-colored white on the surface of the fries which snapped like pencils when bitten. By the time we could get our server to check in with us, it made no sense for us to spend another 30 minutes, so we slithered and squeezed our way to the exit, through the still waiting crowd, a grabbed a couple complimentary salt-topped chocolate chip cookies, and left disappointed.
