I gave it four stars for the place...the food was 3 stars. We had fun here but the food was a little disappointing. The quinoa tabbouleh on the Mediterranean plate was tasteless..no lemon or mint flavor at all, it was like plain quinoa. The sweet potato cakes needed some seasoning to contrast with the maple aioli, they were really bland.... More

My husband and I have been going here for years, way before we were married. We love coming for Valentine's Day with their specialty menu. We also had our rehearsal dinner at Laci's. All the staff makes you feel welcome and like family. I recommend Laci's to all my friends and family. Laura and Cindy are amazing and we feel... More

This was our first time at Laci's...it will not be our last. Eclectic menu with some outstanding selections. My favorite was the Lamb chop lollipops and roasted veggies. Very nice wine list that compliments the choices. Would like to try more offerings, we will be back!

Were just passing through looking for a dinner stop. Located in a converted home. Wide array of 'Tapas' plates. Every thing we had was quite good. Service was outstanding as well

I have experience Laci's from a fundraiser for David's Refuge. I had always wanted to go back and finally for my birthday we made the trip. We did not have reservations but they fit us in between one that was leaving and one that would be arriving. We had plenty of time to enjoy 2for1 Sangria and 5 delicious plates... More

First, I must say that the service was excellent, no issues what-so-ever in that regard. The hostesses and waiter were all wonderful. The food was good, but nothing that blew our socks off. The poutine was on special tat evening, and ended up being a little flat in taste. The beef wellington was our favorite and cooked wonderfully. The scallops... More

Large party of 12. We've been coming to Syracuse for the past several years and generally take out a large group like this. We have had some not so good experiences and some pretty good ones but none as good as this. With all of us, I think we tried about 20 dishes and there was not one disappointment. A... More

The service was great, but the food was so-so. I had the vegan tacos, roasted brussel sprouts, and vegan brownie with coconut ice cream. The vegan tacos were decent, the brussel sprouts were pretty good, but I didn't like the vegan brownie.

Hello and thank you for your review. Out of the 3 tapas that you ordered you didn't like the brownie. Did you let us know so that we could remove it from your bill? Not everyone can like everything at Laci's Tapas Bar but we can easily replace a tapas you don't like or happily refund your money, no problem.... More
