“A popular place with good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014

It was very crowded when I was there, but still no wait for a table. I had the regular pizza, which was OK, but another person had the Mediterranean flatbread pizza which was excellent. Desserts were also very good! Service was fast, attentive and friendly.

“Excellent service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2013 via mobile

The stand out aspect of our visit was the service. The server gave great advice, fresh cokes and teas appeared every time they were 3/4 completed. Service was quick and with a smile.

The food was fresh and enjoyable. I has the Thai challenge with Chinese cabbage salad and other had rice bowls. All was enjoyable and of great quality. Far above expectations.

“Great spot for lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2013 via mobile

I recently took some colleagues to the Lazy Dog for lunch. Great service, a variety of menus choices at reasonable prices and the food is excellent! The Tex Mex and Pesto Chicken Hummus salads are fantastic. Doesn't get much better than this!

“Good, but pricey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2013

Call me cheap, go ahead, it's a worthy description. We stopped in here simply because SoCal traffic had us moving so slow, it was better to eat first, travel later. Of the several restaurants in the area, the Lazy Dog was an appealing choice with an inviting outdoor seating area. The staff was helpful and friendly (and didn't refuse a couple of sweaty hikers) and the food was mostly very good. My salmon was excellent, the appetizer was great, my fellow diner's steak only fair. Overall, a very pleasant meal, but the bill was more than I'd expected. Blame my companion's two beers, I guess. I'd gambled on a $30/seat dinner and we walked away at 50% more. Ah well...

“Good for kids, parents, lots of choices, dogs allowed on the patio”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013 via mobile

I've been to lazy dog several times and the food is always good. Anyone can eat here, kids, food allergies, vegetarians, really hungry, not so hungry, healthy eater, you name it. Salads, entrees, bowls, kids choices and kids side dishes are all very good. I like that there are healthy side choices for kids and parents. Service is good, and this restaurant is crowded, so dine early or late or make a reservation. Dogs allowed on the patio so that's always nice too.
