We went there for dinner and asked for a quite table away from the bar. The service was excellent, the food was very good, nice athmosphere. The place was very busy but the service was fast. Highly recommended.

We had a great dinner here; the pizzas were really superb as was the cheeseburger my son opted for. My salmon was a little overdone, but not too badly. The service was excellent and the decor quite nice. We would certainly eat here again if in the area.

We ate here for New Year's Eve while visiting Monterey. The food was very good, the atmosphere inviting, and the staff was helpful. Even though it was New Year's Eve, the staff allowed us to take our time and did not rush us through dinner.

We wanted a restaurant that was conveniently located with a nice ambiance but also good for kids. We were very happy with our Lallapooza experience. I had the grilled salmon which was great. We all shared the calamari and it was up there with the best I've ever had. Everyone in my party enjoyed their meals. The staff was pleasant... More

Our family of six dinned there on a Saturday evening. Did not have a reservation but, we were quickly seated. Ordered their super scrumptious Strawberry Daiquiri and Grey Goose Special cocktails and classic Martini. The bread and oil/balsamic vinegar dip was excellent. I ordered the roasted beet and pear salad as my appetizer and shared it with Mom and my... More

Booked a table for dinner based on TA reviews. We weren't disappointed! Cool decor, friendly staff (Josiah in particular), delicious food. We had shrimp tacos and the Tough Guy pizza, along with a Firestone 805 blonde beer - all very tasty! And not badly priced, either. Would defo come again.

Great martinis, oysters and duck fat fries on the happy hour menu. Nice atmosphere as well but the continued looping dance music can be tiresome.
