Decent food, a little over priced... horribly rude and lazy delivery driver wanted me to come to the curb in the rain...HELLOOOO thats why I ordered delivery! more

My mom took me in this restaurant and i was so happy and contented with their menu. So delicious! I'll be back soon :) more

Editorial review from Citysearch 7/14/2012

I heard good things about this place. As an int'l CNN bureau editor, I've tasted some of the best food in the world. I must admit that I am not impressed. Gaucho Grill was much better: This place serves stale bread, cold fries, rubbery steaks, warm salads. Never bring a date here. more

Editorial review from eat24hours.com 5/22/2012

I've enjoyed most of the dishes I've had at Lala's. I usually order the Pechuga de Pollo (has the orange-lemon sauce). I've also had the angel hair pasta with salmon, which was good. If you live close to the restaurant, they usually deliver much quicker than the 45-60 min estimate. more

Editorial review from eat24hours.com 4/22/2012

Small portions for the price, salad only had enough dressing for 1/3 of it, food arrived in such a mess that it would have literally had to have been thrown around. more

good place 3/14/2012

Good food! I go here for dinner. more

All I can say is ""Nasty"" 2/24/2012

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 ! more

Overcooked but the Soup? 2/1/2012

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! more

Spongebob Stalefish ? 1/23/2012

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! more

Chewy Steaks? 1/19/2012

Heard good things about this place and their steaks. I tried the Lomo (filet mignon). Probably the most expensive thing on the menu. Tasted OK but texture was overdon, chewy and rubbery. Not sure how an Argentine parilla can mess this one up????? I asked for medium rare and they didnt even offer to redo it. Back to Gaucho Grill for me ! more

What's happened to this place ? 1/16/2012

Lala?s on Melrose last weekend. I dip my fork into the chimichurri to spread on my bread and out comes half a frikken roach mixed in with whatever?s in that stuff (which normally tastes pretty good). My girl goes ballistic. The server shrugs her shoulder and the manager?s nowhere to be found. What?s happened to this place? more

yuck! 1/11/2012

I cant believe it. I was at LALAs argentine grill with some friends for lunch the other day and there was a hair in my salad. I almost barfed. The waitress was rude and the manager was even worse. Not going back ! more

Fast food Argentinean Food Restaurant 11/4/2011

Too bad there isn't much reference about what Argentinean Food should be like - in the L.A. Metro area. Milanesa sandwich with cold -french wannabe bread? Let that alone...employees moving chairs around in an attempt to send in the message 'we're closing -get out of here- and making lot of noise..a waitress who didn't bother asking 'how's everything' when it came to paying the bill and . QUILMES...the only good thing enjoyed here. I wish I had a better impression. more

Milanesa Napolitana! 4/24/2009

Lala's is one of my favorite restaurants in LA. Despite being located in the trendy heart of Melrose, Lala's never comes off as being pretentious or snooty. I've had pretty good luck walking right up on a Friday or Saturday night and getting a table relatively quickly. I also adore its patio, which has an outdoor atmosphere, yet has the warmth of a cozy indoor dining room. Two words - Milanesa Napolitana. This is what I order for my entree every time. It's sort of like a cross between chicken fried steak and chicken parmesan, with a little Argentinian kick of flavor. Yum! I also sometimes order the Provoleta for an appetizer, which is just melted cheese, but it's oh so good. The bread with their oil and herbs is also amazing (I don't even know what they call it, but it's potent and addicting). I knocked off a star only because I went there once for my birthday and they stuck us indoors in the corner, but other than that one experience, Lala's has been great. Make sure you order some sangria. Pros: Food, atmosphere, service Cons: Sometimes no parking more

Great place for cheap but good salmon 3/23/2009

I love lala's but unfortunately I've only had the salmon and steak with mash/rice and salad. I would recommend this for anyone. Pros: price, salmon dijon Cons: n/a more

LaLa's 1/15/2009

They have the best olive oil/cilantro bread dip here! And the food was amazing...the chicken and salmon salads were very tasty! And the portions were huge for such a great price! more

Drinks! 12/8/2008

For some reason, the drinks are great here! I always go for happy hour and love it! It's not too crowded...just relaxation. more

Chicken plates 12/8/2008

All the chicken plates are good! My favorite is the skinless chicken plate they have...i forget the name but when u see the menu...your know! more

    Lala's has two locations--a Studio City strip mall and the Melrose Avenue original where Hollywood glitterati and actor types hang on the patio. Argentine meals waste no bit of...
