As a local, my husband and I have dined at L. May many times and we are never disappointed. They have an imaginative menu and the food is always delicious. In May 2014, we received service above and beyond. Using their Open Table reservation system, I reserved a table for four by a window. It was a special occasion because my husband's two sons paid us a surprise visit for his birthday.
The table was ready and by a front window. I had a pasta dish, one son had fish and the other two had filet mignon. While serving the filets, the waitress dropped one of them. L.May did not charge us for the filet mignon! Plus, after dinner our waitress delivers a complimentary dessert tray, with fresh strawberries, chocolates, fudge brownies and a light dipping sauce. Wow! That is service! L.May is a class act.

We went to LMay for the first time on Friday night, we are new to Dubuque it was very yummy! From the appetizers to the wonderful table side prepared Spanish Coffee made by our WONDERFUL server Chris... we loved our experience. There were 5 of us and we all had a different entree which we shared... Veal Meatloaf, Duckling, Striped Bass and special of Trout were excellent. Our server Chris was attentive and knowledge, he rounded out the evening nicely for us. What a great find, will definitely go again!!

A quaint, cozy atmosphere with an awesome menu. The lobster lasagne is a must have. We had prompt, friendly service and had a wonderful dinner.

This isn't a huge place (space wise) but that doesn't affect the food quality. I have always had good meals whenever dining at L May. They are known for their pizza's and Sangria (to wash it down. It's a frequent stop for us on special occasions but is still perfect for a Friday or Saturday night dining.

Our party of 9, in town for a wedding, was treated royally by Kathy. She was very attentive to our needs and very helpful with the menu. Her friendliness contributed to our great experience. One person ordered the scallops and said they were excellent. I ordered the filet mignon and the butter concoction made it the most flavorful filet I have ever had. The accompanying mashed potatoes and asparagus were fantastic also. I highly recommend this restaurant which was recommended to us by a relative who said it is the best.
