Visited at the recommendation of a friend. Didn't know what to expect. Was pleasantly surprised by a well thought menu with high quality products and refined taste. Loved the ahi tuna poke!! The In a subsequent visit tried the soya sesame mayo and the vinaigrette...made for a delicious combination. The Ceviche of Hamachi did not disappoint as well. Two great starters! The hand cut fries are to die for, and the pappardelle is juicy and tasty. Excellent service. Just a bit too cold inside!More

We were quite impressed with not only the hotel (Sheraton) but with their restaurant Lela as well. Quite honestly I can't believe we hadn't visited here before but thanks to good friends we finally made it up for a try. The food was absolutely fantastic...and surprising for a Saturday night the place wasn't busy at all. I'm sure it had a lot to do with Covid-19, we practically had the entire place to ourselves. As far as the service it was absolutely top notch. This is really a great business hotel with an exceptional restaurant. We'll definitely be back!More

Lela offer all American comfort with their chef's special menu including crudo and pasta. We had a poke tuna and ceviche. It was excellent. Had a lamb chops and my wife had a salmon. Lamb was cooked to perfection with a creamy mash and Brussel...sprouts. I throughly enjoy my dinner. My wife had a salmon which she loved it.She said her fish was the best she ever had. We had a really wonderful time and enjoyed everything. Thanks to Jeep our Server for the recommendation and a fine service. We'll be back.More

We had a group dinner in a private room. Pre ordered appetizers and everyone ordered from the menu for dinner. Very attentive wait staff-amazing service. Food was so delicious and devoured by all. Super positive experience and will book again.

Probably one of the most overlooked restaurants in the Twin Cities. Hands down, the best hotel restaurant in town. Very handsome atmosphere, open kitchen, and excellent service. Best of all: you can easily talk to each other at a normal level. Care is taken to...spread people throughout the dining room. Food is exquisite. They make their own pasta. we shared the zucchini pasta with peppers and almonds as a starter although it could be a main dish. I had the double lamb chops with potato puree and glazed brussel sprouts. Superbly prepared and very filling. My wife had the seared scallops over risotto. Spectacular. Four large scallops, very tasty, and not a grain of sand. Give this place a try; you won't be disappointed.More

On a recent visit we were licky enough to get Adele as our server. My ffavorite menu item, the Pork Chop with Aprricot Glaze had just been retired from the selections. When I mentioned to Adelle that I really wanted that for my meal, he...said let me see what I can do. In short order Phil, the Master Chef came out and said he was sorry that the Pork Chop was not available but he could make me a Pork Tenderloin with a wonderful glaze he improvised. What a meal!! It was sliced and cooked to perfection atop mashed potatoes and a side of brussel sprouts. I won't forget to mention Adele's stellar service. He makes you not only feel a home but that you are a special guest as well. My Wife and Son joined in the meal with their own wonderful selections. A get night out!More

The service was good, food was decent, but for the price, could have been kicked up a notch. The scrambled eggs were dry and the crab cakes which I was looking forward to were really fishy tasting; I couldn’t finish it. Overall, an okay meal,...but I’ve had better brunches for less money.More

We have been going to Lela periodically since it opened, but our experience last night was exceptional. New chef, Joe, was absolutely superb with the food preparation and presentation. Service and personal attention were impeccable. Ambiance was relaxing. As we told the staff at Lela...when we were departing, "We will be back, soon!"More

In town for a conference staying at Doubletree and we wanted a nice dinner close by and someone recommended Lela at the Sheraton Hotel next door. It was a week day and there were 10 of us with 2 on the way and did not...make reservations but they easily accommodated us by pushing tables together. Décor is contemporary, open and relaxing with lots of large windows (albeit being on the 1st floor looking over a parking lot.) They have a very unique glass room wine cellar. Service was attentive without being overbearing, friendly and polite and our servers clearly explained their extensive and creative menu in detail and made great recommendations. I wouldn't call Lela's Italian but they do offer pasta dishes. For example - meal salad prices are in line but then to add a protein it costs an additional $8-$11! Ouch! They also offer crudos, small and large plates and meats. My scallops (3) were excellent, sitting on a bed of corn risotto, chive oil & crispy shallots. Those who ordered steaks were impressed; tender, juicy and properly cooked. Nice wine list, creative cocktails and local craft beers. I have to say overall portions are on the small size but it's quality over quantity. Overall we had a very enjoyable time and a great dinner; I would recommend enjoying a nice dinner here.More
