Description: Laporta's restaurant is the ideal place for extraordinary food in a casual, comfortable setting. Laporta's has an attentively serviced contemporary dining room perfect for a romantic evening out or any other special occasion, combined with an adjoining intimate Jazz lounge. Relax and listen to the live jazz featured nightly. The lounge has the warmth and friendly feel of a local's bar yet with the same excellence of service and consistency of food quality that defines our dining room and exemplifies the restaurant as a whole. The menu features inventive fresh seafoods and hearty pastas complemented by the provincial-style desserts of Margaret Laporta. New outdoor terrace with dining daily until 11pm. DOG friendly!

We had a large party early on a Saturday night prior to the Billy Joel concert. The restaurant was very accommodating, opening early and setting up a table for 13. They have a very good wine list, with great wines at all price ranges. Both the chef and the sommelier stopped by to make recommendations and welcome us to the restaurant. The flash fried oysters were crispy outside and tender inside. Entrees were all well received to include the beef tips (special that night), the BBQ hanger steak and the chicken envoltine. Desserts were also great. Finally our server was very good and attentive for such a large group under a time crunch. 13 new regular customers left happy for the concert.

Business lunch, and all went very well. Initial greeting from the hostess (Christina), our server (Lauren), and food was very good. Hanger steak, and the Summer Salad were choices for eats on this day. Location makes it a bit of a challenge for parking, but a minor frustration that really had nothing to do with this fine restaurant. I bet this is a very nice, romantic?, setting at night when live jazz is playing. Recommended!

I was introduced/recommended to a fine tequila which set perfect with the fillet, cooked to perfection.

Staff and food very good. We got smaller portion sizes. The night we visited the jazz singer, Janine Gilbert-Carter was performing. Smooth oldie jazz. Excellent singing. If in the area definitely a great place to stop in, enjoy a meal and music.

Had dinner mid week, wonderful service and great specials. Steak and fish were great. Desserts wonderful and service is attentive. Good place to go if you want to get away from all the crowds and you can park for free next door in an inside garage after 6 pm.
