Celebrated a birthday at dinner recently. La Jolla continues to excell. Many would agree the three best restaurants in Montgomery are, in alphabetical order, City Grill, La Jolla and Vintage Year. The only disagreement would be just how to rank them. - it would be matter of personal taste as to atmosphere, service and cuisine. All are outstanding.

Our server was well informed and attentive, but unobtrusive. He gave us plenty of time to enjoy our drinks and relax, but seemed to sense when we needed something. I ordered the Veal Picatta and my wife, the duck confit. Both were superb! And the cherry galette for dessert was fabulous! Keep up the good work!

La Jolla is a popular local hang out located in a nondescript strip mall. This is one of those places you'd never find without Trip Advisor. Even with the address I drove past it 2 times. But it was worth the effort. I enjoyed one of the best hamburgers I've ever eaten. AND they serve Pappy Van Winkle bourbon. I... More

My husband and I ate here with a friend. The food was exquisite. It is definitely made fresh and it is unique food. The tuna nachos is a must try. The clams were the best I've ever had. Carrot cake was huge and homemade. The meats were seasoned well. Limited seating, so get there early!

Tried LaJolla for the first time this weekend. Throughly enjoyed my snapper. The fish was fresh and the set up was "just right" Service was better than average and the staff was informed and helpful. Found the pricing in line and I will be back.

La Jolla has moved since I was here 8yrs ago - the food has only gotten better - Kitchen is tight, interesting, progressive and adventurous. Will runds a tight bar - Todd has a terrific team. Excellent wine list and knowledgeable staff. You get what you pay for, and well worth it

La Jolla is perfect for date night, a business dinner, or a casual meetup or solo dinner at the bar. The menu is interesting, divided by small plates, large plates, and individual meats (prepared on one of two XL Green Eggs) and served with your choice of sophisticated sauces and sides. The wine list has good choices, as does the... More

After a search on Trip Advisor, we found La Jolla during our stop over in Montgomery. An excellent surprise! My husband was intrigued by the way they cook on the Big Green Egg, and our filet and lamp chops were perfectly cooked. Wait staff was attentive and helpful. Nice and quiet on a Wednesday.

We recently dined at La Jolla, where we eat several times a month. The food is always well prepared; get there early for the Limited Burger, as the name implies they only make a few every night. The veal piccata is very good as is the fried oyster appetizer. All the steaks are cooked on Green Eggs, for a unique... More
