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

Came here at a late evening.. and we decided to try this place and it is a good choice. I love my steak and noodle. The meat is really soft and tender... Pasta is spicy and sour, it's new to me. Portion is huge with the price 😳 Hubby had butter squash enchilada and it's so good too! He can... More

The food was good, the view was great, but the ambiance was strange. The interior looks like a hair salon. Very bright with these weird chandeliers. Made me feel uncomfortable.

We had an enjoyable dinner here. I had the Octopus, Calamari and Farro salad. My son enjoyed his Alfredo pasta. Nice atmosphere and very good service with reasonable prices.

On our first visit to Monterey, we were excited by local restaurant options with outdoor patio dining. Long story...but we had ended up traveling with a newly acquired rescue pet, and suddenly Monterey's advertised pet-friendly dining atmosphere dried up..."We only accept service dogs," most said. Well of course they did, it is the law. But here, not only were we... More

I originally ordered the lasagne but it was far too meaty and not enough cheese (how is that possible?). But the BF got the clam chowder in a bread bowl which was outstanding! I asked to replace my lasagne with a bowl of my own chowder, and it was accomplished without a problem. I am from New England and have... More

I was looking for a place to have a upscale lunch in Monterey. Most places on the water have their share of friend food/bar food and I was not in the mood but still wanted the waterside feeling. We stumbled upon Lalla Grill and was instantly blown away by the view. We were lucky to get a window table and... More

Wow, this is a really great place to eat in beautiful Monterey! If possible, try to get a table near the window front. We were lucky and got one without reservation and the view was amazing...right onto the magnificent monterey bay - we could even watch an otter mum with her pup out there while enjoying our dinner! Food was... More

Dining choices alfresco or inside. A wonderful waitress who was patient with guest arriving at different times. Drinks tasty and the entree of beef medallions was wonderful. Would definitely return to this delightful eatery.
