I have always wanted to go to this place, but there always seemed to be a wait, and I don't like waiting in lines at restaurants. One day I noticed that it did not seem packed as usual so I decided to go. It was the BEST decision I made that day. The food is amazing, and the service was so great. Our waitress was a sweetheart, she was very patient and took really good care of us.
Not sure what the exact name of the dishes were, but we got garlic chicken with mashed potatoes on the side, and a salad. Both were VERY tasty! And the prices were surprisingly pretty low for a popular Studio City restaurant ($10-20 range).
I have actually been back a few times for pick up (yes, it's that good). I would also recommend getting the side of garlic sauce. Yum yum!
Good Argentinian food. I love their thin, breaded chicken cutlet. Their chimichurri-type sauce is tasty, too. Don't forget to pair it with a glass of sangria! They have an outdoor patio or plenty of indoor seating.

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.
