Pretty restaurant where two parties we attended were really lovely. The food was quite good and the space is great for a large crowd (though somewhat noisy, even inside, with a DJ on the patio).

My wife and I had a very enjoyable dinner at La Rez, our first experience. The ambiance is homey since this is an old house converted to a restaurant. Zak was our server, very professional and customer oriented. The meal was superb, salmon poached in oil on tri-colored fingerling potatoes garnished with a tarragon mousse, yum. My wife had a seasonal dish of pumpkin ravioli in browned butter, wow. Dessert was a little disappointing but OK. It was the smoked tiramisu which turned out a bit hard and very sweet. Only issue was a street light outside shining in on our table (205) which created a glare. Also premium drinks are excpensive, my Ciroc vodka was $15 which is a NYC price. Will definitely go again as the food is outstanding.

The ladies lunch group dined at La Rez in Chapel Hill today. It was relaxing, delicious, and the menu was quite good. The presentation was very nice, service outstanding and the portion sizes were great for our group.

Le Residence (La Rez) has been a Chapel Hill fixture for MANY years and is a classic for this area. With the new places opening in town and nearby, I lost it in the "shuffle" and I'm so glad we returned so we may remember it for future events.

The parking is not so great right now with construction in Chapel Hill, but parking decks are one of the projects, so we are looking forward to easier visiting Chapel Hill's gems in the future.

La Rez is a "must visit" due to it's longtime presence and great reputation in Chapel Hill.

People around here rave about "La Rez", but the one meal I ate there was overpriced and pedestrian. Trying to work up the courage to try again, but given their prices, I'm reluctant to give them a second chance.
