Lala's is an OK Argentinian restaurant. The food is average, as well as the service. It main issue is the lack of consistency. One day could be good, but the next may not.

One of my favorite la spots. The steaks are excellent. Great to enjoy with friends. I usually start with a pitcher of sangria and the bread they serve. Traditional argentine food. For vegetarians id suggest the chefs special or vege skewers.

We found the food to be on the plain side. We ordered empanadas, chicken, salmon, and steak. None of it was very flavorful or anything special, especially for the price. The bread was complimentary. The best thing we found were the grilled vegetables. Very limited...More

My adult son and I had dinner here. He recommended the sangria and entrana. I had the classic and it was great. He had his with a garlic topping.
