For years, whenever someone says "What do you want to eat?" and I say, "What about Lala's? You know Lala's?" They're like, "Heck yes, I love Lala's!" Very casual restaurant on a corner of Melrose with super tasty food. Nothing pretentious just good service and...a satisfying meal. I recommend the Melrose salad, the tortilla de papa, and croquettas. My friends always get the rib eye and mashed potatoes or french fries. It's all good!More

The best chimichurri sauce we’ve ever had!! I had a beautiful Melrose salad and Hubby had a delicious steak. Great service , lovely atmosphere

Ordered the Salmon Burger and it was ehhh. Big patty so I did like that for protein but taste was sub par. It didnt really taste like much. The tartar sauce kind of overpowered everything. The Argentinean sauce did not taste like anything either.

There’s more than one location of these in LA now and we went to the one on Melrose. When it first opened it was the only one we knew of and it was great value with generous portions - that’s changed a bit. However they...are one of the few restaurants that gives you bread and a very good oil and herb sauce with just a little bite to it that’s almost addictive to dip your bread in at the start of the meal. Menus are only in QR code. This is not a white table cloth location. The bar is limited to beer wine and a few specialty drinks like margaritas and Mojito‘s. Service was prompt, efficient and professional. I did not feel the Plato Mixto was not the value I was looking for. The salad with salmon was excellent. As a casual family dinner location it was excellent, we had a very nice time and had no problem getting in.More

Always enjoy my dinners here - they make amazing Mahi Mahi (Popeye version) and their sangria is the best in town (you can order by the pitcher or glass). Whenever I'm in the area (ie seeing Groundlings), I always have dinner here. The Studio City...location is just as good, just a little smaller. To note, my absolute favorite is their Provoleta starter. That along with the bread and sauce is amazing.More

They have great flat steaks and good wines, in a very comfortable and airy setting. The service is outstanding. No hard liquor.

The first time I ate at Lalas was in 2012 and 7 years later, they haven’t changed. The variety is as remarkable as the flavors. Their portions are very generous. Our server, Micaela, was fantastically friendly, personable, and took such great care of us. We...went for an early dinner and it coincided with their happy hour bites, wine, and beer. The bites were very affordable and the wine at $6 a glass can’t be beat. Our ribeye entrees were so tender and juicy. If you’re looking for an authentic and delicious Argentine restaurant with all Argentine wines, fast and friendly service, and a nice ambience; check out Lala’s! They never disappoint.More

I found this place via web, looking for something still open (was last night around 10pm) where to taste good meat. Once entered I appreciated the nice location. Personnel where very gentle and kind with me. I exposed a potential issue with my debit card,...and so we checked in advance that everything was ok, showing a very good attituide. Then when I ordered a glass of Malbec, the server suggested me to consider to take one of better quality with very slightly difference in price. I'm glad I followed his suggestion. I tried a "bife encebollado" and was so delicious. Summarizing, I was very satisfied for the location, the service, the food and the wine. Top.More

Went here on family night out. Great food and great atmosphere. Ask to sit in conservatory area, no bookings taken but it’s big with lots of space. Service v friendly and welcoming and it’s open late. Good for friends and family or even romantic meal
