“Excellent Food”
Reviewed August 11, 2011

Everything we've gotten there has been fresh and tasty. I'm very happy that they deliver so that we can get their excellent food at home.

“Disappointed again”
Reviewed November 23, 2009

We have eaten at this restaurant a total of three times. The food is really pretty good. The atmosphere is cozy and relaxing.
The service is HORRIBLE.
The first time we ate there we were forgotten by the waiter, but the food was pretty good so we let it slide. The second time the manager all but waited on us, because of the total lack of efficiency of the wait staff. Food was delicious.
We were there Saturday night for the last time. We were there almost 30 minutes before we finally were served beverages; about an hour before we received our appetizers.
I had to go to the bar to get a second beverage.
Disappointing and we will not return.

“intimate and all you could want music drinks good service”
Reviewed April 22, 2009

I discovered La
Cena through a friend . We went and were surprised by the transformation on the decor like a little of Italy.We were greeted and seated in a spot not occupied by everyone else. When the food was presented we were impressed. To our surprise a duo of singers came out to entertain for a long time . We have since returned several times for our place!. Will always return for special dates.

“Fantastic food and Fabulous service”
Reviewed October 21, 2008

My fiance and I met at La Cena so it holds a special place in our hearts, but the food and service keep bringing us back. Our most recent visit was on my fiance's birthday and as we were recognized and welcomed back, found an unexpected birthday cake for dessert. A sincere treat that you should try. The piano bar before dinner is a great way to unwind and relax prior to being seated.

“Ho hum”
Reviewed May 17, 2007

I read some good reviews and looked forward to trying this place. Fuhgeddabowdit. The food was okay, but so pedestrian as to elicit yawns. It *is* better than some places, but can't hold a candle to places with imagination, like the unsung wonder that is Macaroni's in NE Philadelphia.
