Overcooked but the soup? Almost everything we ordered arrived overcooked, mushy and tasteless with the exception of the soup. The soup (Vegetable Soup) was cold in the middle as if they microwaved it. The pasta (angel hair) was overdone

Went to LALA's last Thursday with a few friends and had the best time. Service was great and the pesto dip with bread was excellent. Try any garlic chicken dish and you'll be happy. Salds like the Melrose is also a good bet.

When I want to treat myself, I like to visit Lala's. The ambiance is wonderful and the service is great. Oh and the food isn't too bad either! actually, its very taste. I like the potato quiche-like appetizer. I usually order the thin steak with mushrooms...its to die for. Their sangria is yummy as well. I had a birthday here a few years ago and it was a really fun night. I would highly suggest having a celebration here. Great people, great service and great food.

This place is amazing! I've eaten here often and usually order the steak (I forget what its called) but it comes with rice and a salsa that is absolutely amazing on the steak! They also have a huge wine selection.

If it's nice outside, sit on the patio. It's much roomier and breezier. If it's night time the ambiance is great! Dimly lit with little candles on the tables overlooking Melrose Ave makes it extremely enjoyable.

Lala's is so the place to for Argentinian food! I am addicted to their grilled salmon, but people really go here for the steaks. The Entrana is DIVINE! And the prices are incredible. You can eat for under $15 per person. Great mashed potatoes. Fun outdoor patio that has a great view of Melrose! Great place for dates or with friends.
