“Amazing Birthday Dinner!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2013

L. May is by far our favorite restaurant in Dubuque. We went with another couple to celebrate two birthdays! Cathy was our server she was excellent and she made sure our drinks were always full and even brought us out free desserts! Great experience.

Wonderful ambiance, inventive menu, well-executed dishes, attentive service. We could not have asked for more. We are foodies and really enjoyed ourselves.

“Wonderful dining experience at L May Eatery!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

We are in town for a few days and I am so glad we choose L May to eat at dinner last night. The food was delicious and our service was perfect. Cathy was our server and she made sure we had everything we needed throughout our meal. Also, she was great with my 2 year old son. The food was prepared perfectly and we enjoyed everything. Next time were in town, we'll be back!

“Dine Here!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013

This is a great place! Recently went for a drink, but have dined here in the past. Owners are friendly. Food is great. Nice wines. Really like the atmosphere. A good pick for a date night or group of friends dining out. From beginning to end the experience here is outstanding.
