We were too late to join my daughters friends for dinner, so we decided to eat at Lalla Grill. The drinks were fantastic and dinner was delicious. We returned the next day with a party of eight for brunch. Our server was great, we never had to ask for a thing - even refills of the bottomless mimosas! Everyone at... More

Quinoa salad was very tasty. Chips r a nice touch instead of bread as u r seated. Outdoor patio great in the nice weather. Prices decent. Service was not quite up to par but otherwise a great place for lunch

This is a nice bar and restaurant. We went there for a drink and ended up ordering the calamari. It was delicious. They don't have much of a wine selection, but good drinks. The bartender was very nice.

The bartenders are the stars, but so is the food. I never ever visit Monterey California without making a stop at Lalla Grill at the Del Monte Center. The drinks are always made to your taste and pleasureand the seared ahi w/noddles is heavenly, along with many other dishes from the menu. You will definitely find your own special bartender...

We were at the Lalla Grill Oct. 22 and had a good time. The food and service were excellent. The atmosphere is modern and comfortable, although a bit noisy. I had the bbq chicken quesadilla and my wife had the chicken wrap. Both meals were excellent, however we both found some hot spots (super spicy) which probably didn't belong inside... More

My wife and I ate there today for lunch. The menu had many different items to eat. The view was excellent and the ambiance was nice. We both had flat bread pizza. It was very good. We shared a salted Carmel chocolate cake. So delicious! We really enjoyed our meal here.

We were in Monterey for the funeral for our family member. While there, a group of 20 extended family members ate at the Laila Grill, and it was wonderful! I had the fish tacos, and they were delicious! The staff was so accommodating and attentive and sensitive to the reason we were all in Monterey. And the atmosphere and surroundings... More
