Friends and I enjoyed dinner one evening. They both had the lamb chops and I had the lobster bisque. We all cleaned our plates and enjoyed every single bite. I will definitely be back.

The atmosphere is inviting, the service friendly, and F&B delicious! The Ahi Tuna nachos are superb ... on Wednesday night only, Ahi Tuna Rolls are available (see picture). Everything on the menu is good and you will enjoy a great dining experience!

We enjoyed our anniversary dinner at LaJolla last evening. My wife had the NY Strip and I had the Bay Scallops with pasta. The food was excellent and service was superb. One of the best meals we have had in Montgomery.

This is a special place. Had the best porkchop ever. Atmosphere was nice and upscale. Everything our group ordered was wonderful. Prices are $45 to $50 per person but worth every penny. Will definitely be back.
