Stayed on Cannery Row and wanted to walk to dinner. Modern clean presentation. Quick service. The calamari app was the most tender version I have had. Clam chowder was good and the Fettuccini shrimp and halibut was very tasty. Great ocean view and a quick and easy satisfying dinner

This restaurant has a very modern setting along Monterey Bay with great views of the bay. Our service was prompt and excellent. My wife said her Crab & Bacon Melt was very good, but she was disappointed with her Clam Chowder as it was almost all liquid with very few clams. My Cuban Mojo, a Cubano facsimile, was pretty good.... More

We discovered Lala this trip and were very impressed with the view. The menu is varied and extensive. We lucked out and got a table near the window without a reservation. I had the Mahi Mahi and my wife had the Sole & Shrimp; both were delicious. Service was good and we will be back.

A good experience. Great menu with many choices. Very nice atmosphere and our server was terrific. There were four of us for lunch and three were very happy with their meal. I, on the other hand, was disappointed with the Reuben sandwich. The pastrami was sliced too thick and it did not have thousand island dressing and too little sauerkraut.... More

Rating is good but TP does not offer this option One of many restaurants on cannery Row. Lalla offers a wide range of fish dishes which was what I was after interested in, it also serves very nice Iceberg wedge salads. Visited for dinner in December and perhaps lunch would be better to enjoy the views. Very friendly and professional... More

The food was awesome! We had steak, seared ahi and fish n chips - all three dishes very well served and fresh. The bathrooms were... More

We ate lunch at Lalla Grill. The street tacos were delicious. We were seated right next ro the window for an ocean view. Service was mediocre. Food was delicious!

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
