This restaurant is fantastic! I really can't say enough good things about La Merenda. The food is fresh and different. Go with a group of friends and try a bit of everything! Service is friendly and timed perfectly. The atmosphere is great as well!

Wonderful place! Could not get a reservation last nite, but opted to sit at the bar. Had wonderful service, bartender was great. Food was amazing! The freshest ingredients here, with wonderful light sauces. The dishes that had meat were consistently cooked and not overdone and tasteless, but juicy and tender. Our entrees came at different times, allowing us to enjoy each small plate. Everything was served at the correct temperature-something you don't always get when you are placed at the bar. They did a wonderful job of making sure each small plate was promptly placed for the patron, unlike many that let those dishes sit and keep pouring the beer while you wait and wait..Not here! Peeked into the main dining area and will look forward to heading back when we can sit in their dining area that appeared to be spacious and welcoming. Almost hate to give it such a good review because I hate to share a rare treasure like this! I hope our new food critic has put this on her list as a must. This will no doubt meet w/Carol's approval!
