La Cave is – Okay restaurant if you like a very simple menu, no vegetables unless you count the salad and/or potato. Very cramped, noisy and overpriced. The steak was of great quality but I can buy one of equal quality and grill my own. I was surprised at how simple the menu was, makes for a very boring meal. Had reservations but still waited over 30 minutes, no seating for waiting patrons. Very disapointing.
La Cave Restaurant Rocks! – I love restaurants that offer unique ambience, great food & wonderful entertainment. The singer for the evening performed lots of Frank Sinatra & Tony Bennett. It was a romantic evening! My hubby and I had so much fun there, and the food was excellent! They roll out a cart with samples of the cuts of steak and mmmmm good. I noticed large groups, families w/ kids and they looked like they were having a great time. I think this place is great for couples, large parties or families w/ kids. Good place for all!
The Steak was sooooo Good – I tried the Porterhouse. It was huge. 24 oz and every bit as good as I could have hoped for. The flavor was amazing. I could barely eat my potato but it was so good as well. The pototo was a stuffed potato and don't forget about the basket of garlic bread. From top to bottom I was so pleased. My server was very nice and attentive. I recommend everyone to check this place out.
They have really good jazz music in the evening. Didn't plan on staying for it this time but next time we'll make an entire night out of it.
live jazz and red meat – The parking lot was convenient. The entry way was confusing. A hefty wooden door that looks like it would lead to a broom closet, actually leads downstairs to a rather cramped lil restaurant squeezed in around a bar, otherwise known as "La Cave". There were many busy bodied servers running around dodging display cases of raw beef and seafood. Mike, the bartender fixes a mean cosmopolitan. The hidden lounge on the side tends to be more relaxing and quiet. If you come on the right night, you can enjoy all kind of entertainment...from an old man on a karaoke machine singing Sinatra covers, to a packed room of 20s-30 somethings applauding a very boisterous jazz quartet Great warm feel aside from the anxious cocktail waitresses.
