The best reason to choose La Mar are the beautiful city views. You have to make sure you seat outside otherwise you miss a big reason to pay for the very expensive food. Yes, the food is very good but the portions are small and...More

Sitting outside at La Mar only adds to the ambiance created by the food. As a gluten free eater, it was AMAZING to have plantain chips instead of the dreaded bread basket. We highly recommend the calamari dish.
