My fiancé and I come here at least once a month. We usually scope out a seat at the bar. There is live music on Fridays which adds to the nice atmosphere. All the dishes are delicious, our favorites include the ahi tuna salad, macho salad and the Oreo cookie dessert with tcho hot fudge. Bring your own bottle of wine with no corkage on the first bottle! Cheers!

comfortable restaurant, good food and decent wine choice. Lovely waitress. Only negative is price, it is overpriced for what it is (and coming from London we are well used to overpriced restaurants!) but even by London standards this was a pricey night out.

This restaurant has ridiculous wait times and handles that regular crush pretty well. The prices are high for the food you get, but the french dip is the best I have ever had. Truly incredible. Rare roast beef, buttery roll, flavorful au jus. Delicious! As an appetizer, I recommend the dip duo. Two tasty dips: guacamole and queso, for a plateful of crispy tortilla chips. Worth a wait for this food, just not sure how long a wait....

We have eaten at the LA Grill many times and find the food is consistently very good. One bottle of your own wine is exempt from corkage fees - a very nice touch, although more than made up for with menu prices.

The decor is quite pleasant - nice woods and soft lighting. There is a small seating area outside by the entrance, but it is basically an extension of the bar and subject to the serving rules of the bar. The bar is a large oval with seating on the outside and servers and "inventory" on the inside. Like the restaurant it is very popular and getting space there can be difficult during busy hours. Seating for the restaurant is along the outer walls of the restaurant and separated by the bar area. The kitchen is to the back of the restaurant. The left seating area, as you enter the restaurant, has many wall hangings for decorations, while the right side has windows with views of the parking lot.

The menu is not large, but offers nice selections of sandwiches, dinner salads and dinners. Most recently we had the Grilled Jumbo Artichoke (actually 1 1/2 medium artichokes), Nice Little House Salad, Grilled Colorado Lamb Sirloin, Roasted Prime Rib and our own bottle of Mantra Cabernet Sauvignon (very nice BTW), which lightened the wallet by $100. Other times we have had the rotisserie chicken, salmon, French Dip sandwich and Macho Salad. All dishes we have tried have been very good.

Service has been top rate and all servers have been friendly, pleasant and proficient.

This is an enjoyable restaurant and very popular with the locals. It tends to be very busy and depending on where you are seated it can be a bit noisy, which can make conversation difficult. We have never had a bad experience and will return many more times.

Reservations are recommended unless you go very early.
