I always love coming to Laci's. The atmosphere and food are incredible. We went to dinner for a work gathering and it was such a great time. We had the best server and service. Jen was on top of her game, warm, funny, and really entertaining. The food was so great. I love how things don't all come out and... More

Laci's is a wonderful place to get high-quality tapas (little plates) and feel as if you are welcomed into someone's home. We made a reservation via online (their website) for a 6:15 seating for four. Our confirmation came soon after. Service is excellent; from the moment you are seated until the moment you leave, every whim is catered to. Laura,... More

Laci's was a lovely experience. When my daughter & I arrived, we were warmly welcomed. The hostess had been talking to others who had arrived a bit earlier like they were old friends. As she was seating us, another couple came in and it was the same friendly greeting - like she was talking to old friends. The atmosphere is... More

You can get a friendly waiter and good food anywhere but Laci's is a whole different experience. From the moment you walk through the door you feel like your invited in by family. The hostess actually takes the time to chat with you and make you comfortable. We went for my birthday and we had the best experience. Our waiter... More

I gave it four stars for the place...the food was 3 stars. We had fun here but the food was a little disappointing. The quinoa tabbouleh on the Mediterranean plate was tasteless..no lemon or mint flavor at all, it was like plain quinoa. The sweet potato cakes needed some seasoning to contrast with the maple aioli, they were really bland.... More

My husband and I have been going here for years, way before we were married. We love coming for Valentine's Day with their specialty menu. We also had our rehearsal dinner at Laci's. All the staff makes you feel welcome and like family. I recommend Laci's to all my friends and family. Laura and Cindy are amazing and we feel... More

This was our first time at Laci's...it will not be our last. Eclectic menu with some outstanding selections. My favorite was the Lamb chop lollipops and roasted veggies. Very nice wine list that compliments the choices. Would like to try more offerings, we will be back!

Were just passing through looking for a dinner stop. Located in a converted home. Wide array of 'Tapas' plates. Every thing we had was quite good. Service was outstanding as well

I have experience Laci's from a fundraiser for David's Refuge. I had always wanted to go back and finally for my birthday we made the trip. We did not have reservations but they fit us in between one that was leaving and one that would be arriving. We had plenty of time to enjoy 2for1 Sangria and 5 delicious plates... More

First, I must say that the service was excellent, no issues what-so-ever in that regard. The hostesses and waiter were all wonderful. The food was good, but nothing that blew our socks off. The poutine was on special tat evening, and ended up being a little flat in taste. The beef wellington was our favorite and cooked wonderfully. The scallops... More
