They bridged the gap between fine dining and the menu choices that appealed to two teenagers. Everyone was able to find a number of choices. Tried a shrimp appetizer special. Very good ! Portions were good. Unlike some places that stick small families off to the side, we were given a great booth with fantastic views.

Went here for a late dinner. The food was excellent and the view was amazing. Hold out and wait for a window seat it is worth it. The lobster nachos are excellent. Really good experience.

Laila's used to be one of our favorite casual restaurants until they changed some of our favorites. The pistachio crusted chicken salad is now made mostly with iceberg lettuce (dull), they took the 1/2 sandwich and your choice of 2 sides off the menu completely, and the bacon cheeseburger tastes like pepperoni (weird). On the plus side, the iced coffee... More

Cannery Row in Monterey has only one quality restaurant and this is NOT it. Most restaurants on this main tourist drag are exactly that -- touristy and a drag, with lousy fatty food and lots of screaming kids. Lalla is upscale in appearance but the servers are snooty, the food is overpriced, spicy, and low quality, and the kids are... More

This restaurant was recommended by a patron who had just left the restaurant. We loved it! One of our teenagers had a burger and claims it was the best burger she's ever had. I had lobster, my granddaughter had steak. My daughter had Chicken Piccata and licked the plate clean! We were able to sit by the window and look... More

We had lunch and dinner there. Menus was the same but everything we had was delicious. I had the fish tacos and seafood enchiladas. Hubby had the steak and tuna melt. We also had the steak bite appetizers. Great drink selections and every table has a great view. We really enjoyed everything about this place and the service was excellent... More

Upon arrival is a large bar and plentiful seating. Sitting is spaced out and have views of the water through large windows covering an entire wall. You have many different options for a beverage. From mojito to nojhito(the non-alcohol version of mojitos) and cocktails to mocktails (again the non-alcoholic version) drinks vary with a vast selection to choose from. Mixed... More

Stopped for an early dinner after an afternoon at the aquarium. We started off with their nojitos which were their non alcoholic mojitos. They were so good. All four of us had good meals, they view right on the ocean was great. We would certainly go back.
