I have been all over the world, sampling some of the finest culinary creations ever made and I cant believe how utterly crappy Lala's Argentine Grill is. The bread was stale, the service, slow and mediocre. The wait staff is lazy and the managers are too busy flirting to give a chit. I ordered the prized ""Lomo"". (dry and tasteless -it tasted like freezer burn) I think the Sirloin burger at Jack in the box would have been better, shheeesh !

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 and the plano (flat iron) steak was tough, chewy and salty. Did someone chew my steak and regurgitate it back on the plate ? Yikes, never again!

Hey There ! I was really looking forward to eating here. Its been several years. My boyfriend took me there a few days ago. I ordered the Ensalada con Salmon and he the Cabello de Angel. After waiting for what seemed too long, my salmon was overcooked and spongy and the angel hair was very mushy and overcooked as well. Its as if they grilled a stale piece of frozen fish and kept cooking and cooking. The pasta was way too soggy. Was the bus-boy cooking that night? TERRIBLE!
I just love getting steaks here. Seared and buttery on the outside, nice and pink on the inside. Everything here tastes great but especially the red meat! Entraña al Ajo is my fave. The dining area is nicely decorated but it can be pretty tight and loud. I prefer the 'patio' area which isn't very roomy but you can only be bothered by people seated behind or in front of you.

This place has very good food, steaks, chicken, empanadas, and great mashed potatoes. They have a nice outside patio and valet service. The only weird thing is that to make reservations, you have to FAX over a sheet with your credit card info, a little weird...

I absolutely love this restaurant. They have a great wait staff, cool ambiance, quick service, and most importantly great food. I strongly recommend their steaks. Mostly priced under $20 bucks it tastes great and if bought with the french fries, will fill you up quite well. It's the perfect spot for a quick lunch. Lala's keep up the great work.

I love dinner at Lala's! The steak with mushroom sauce is to die for! I always order it with half mashed potatoes, half salad. The bread and oil dip is delicious, too. I don't know the ingredients, but it's highly addictive. One of my favorite dinner spots.

Being born and raised in Argentina, Lala's was one those eateries that I used to go frecuently. I have to admit that in the beginning food and service wasn't that bad althought nothing out of the ordinary. It had a trendy ambience and I didn't mind settle for less in quality as long as food and service were ok. But, slowly but surely the level of food and service (horrible these days) went down noticeably. Last time I was there I ordered a chicken milanesa. Let me tell you, it was so badly burnt that I had to send it back. To my surprise, they get rid of the marinated burnt parts and brought it back to the table. Oh man! That was the final straw. I will never, ever go back to Lala's and I strongly recommend not to go either. Bad food. lousy service, terrible parking and pricey tabs.
