Celebrated my parent's 70th wedding anniversary and everything was excellent! The food and service was outstanding. Beautiful restoration of an old downtown building. Well done!

We made a reservation ahead of time for a Saturday evening, which I recommend since the place was very crowded. We were celebrating our anniversary so they wrote a cute little note on the paper tablecloth. We ordered the duckling with strawberry basil glaze and sweet potato mash, very tasty. The waitress then brought us a dessert for our anniversary, which was also yummy and a nice surprise. The only disappointing part of the experience was the drunk party of 7 who was so loud, obnoxious and inappropriate with their sexual discussions, it took away from the experience and the romance a bit.

This is one of the top five restaurant's that we have ever been to. Excellent food, our waitress (Mary Kay) did a super job taking care of us and they did everything possible to make our anniversary, super special. We will visit again when we get back to Dubuque.

I visit Dubuque often, and L.May is by far my favorite restaurant in town, and in Iowa (and probably in the world). I'm not quite a regular, but I go there for a drink or appetizers or dinner probably about once a month. The food, beer, wine and cocktail selection is always great and constantly refreshed, but what I really love there is L.May's people. The staff are always welcoming, they're generous with their time and attitudes, and they're smart, fun and kind. I've never had a bad service experience at L.May. Concerning food, try the mussels and a wood-fired pizza, and any other seafood, and the bruschetta, oh and everything else. Nothing is bad; everything is great.

We were visiting Field of Dreams and stayed one night in Dubuque. We booked L. May based on Tripadvisor reviews. The restaurant has a great ambiance with wood floors and brick walls. They have patio seating as well as the inside. Nice wine list and friendly staff. We had pizza, salads, and the crab cake apps. The crab cakes were all crab with a light watermelon feta salsa. Perfect for a summer night. The brownie was huge and perfect for the 4 of us to share!
