Laili is still my favorite restaurant in Santa Cruz. The food is delicious and the service is excellent. The only thing that could make it better would be a full bar.
A terrific evening and great service and food. a minimum of 50 character is a drag
This was our first post -COVID diner out and it was excellent. the only thing we missed was having Saul for our server. He is so charming. We hope to be back when he is on duty.
Food and service was excellent and we never felt rushed.
We have eaten there before and the quality is very consistent
Amazing cuisine and awesome waiting staff. The outside dinning is exquisite with the trees, plants and decor. Very romantic! Highly recommended!!!
We ordered the filet mignon and lamb skewers and they came out way over well done. They were so tough and overcooked. We let the waitress know and she did nothing to try and rectify it. Bummer as each dish was about $30. Won't go back there.
Service was friendly but lacking. Cardamom ice cream was excellent.
Mother’s Day dinner
Love this place! Perfect ambiance such delicious food!
The food at Laili is unique and unlike offerings elsewhere. I've never take anyone there who did not love it.
The waiter did an outstanding job but he was alone. Disappointed in the lamb. Very tough and overcooked.
Good food, great atmosphere ... would recommend fir date night
They are understaffed and the food was not as quality as it used to be.
First, I'm kinda biased cuz this is my favorite restaurant in Santa Cruz. I love the ambience. The wait staff is extremely good. And the food is just delightful. I had the salmon and it was heavenly. I kept taking smaller bites to make it last. We were hosting out of town guests who are both vegans and they were extremely pleased with the menu offerings as well as the ambience. I don't think it could have been a better experience... maybe if I could just been able to make it last longer.
My wife's favorite restaurant. Their outdoor patio was spectacular and the ambience was good. We had a table for six and we all enjoyed the time. We closed the restaurant, but one party.
Great food and service. I would definitely recommend.
Had a great experience here. Good food, nice Ambiente and very friendly staff.
Awesome dining experience as usual!
Visiting Santa Cruz. First restaurant dinner. Beautiful patio
The food was good, though a bit downhill from last time I was there. What was really troubling was the service. Terrible… great atmosphere though!
patio is fantastic, food was great as usual and the kitchen was very accommodating to my vegan dining companion
Excellent food and service. Outdoor dining was safe.
Always great food. Sauces stand out but freshness as well. Such interesting fare Never have had anything but excellent service,
Our favorite restaurant in Santa Cruz!
Great setting and service, delicious food. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening.
Great food. Not so great service the evening we were there. Very busy and the servers were scrambling. But a beautiful outdoor dining courtyard - would go again.
The food is always excellent, Laili is my favorite restaurant in all of Santa Cruz! I am partial to the outside patio (obviously in COVID) but also because it is really beautiful, and the interior tends to be a bit noisy and harder to talk because of the shape of the room (which is gorgeous, but carries the sound with high ceilings). Thank you Laili!
Love the Mediterranean plate and the naan! This food is always appealing, and the patio is lovely and quiet-perfect place to hang out and visit with friends.
From the moment you enter the Laili restaurant, you know you are in for a delightful experience. It is our favorite restaurant in the Santa Cruz area as the food is excellent. The menu variety offers a new experience each time you dine. The wait staff is efficient and welcoming. They work as a team to meet your needs. At Laili, you can relax and enjoy the ambiance and good food.
As always the atmosphere was excellent on the patio and the food prepared to perfection. Only issue was we were served our mains shortly after our appetizers so a bit rushed. The server apologized and said the kitchen was closing. Recommendation don’t book a table past 7pm everything else was top level as expected and as has always been the case. Truly a Santa Cruz gem.
Came to Laili for an early dinner, great time to go wasn’t too busy yet. Outdoor setting was beautiful
The patio is so romantic and food yummy! Perfect for an anniversary dinner. But our table was next to a bus station which I found annoying to hear the slamming of pates when they put them in the bin Don't set there and your experience will be great! Price point a little high for portions but I've paid similar for worse all around.....
Great service and food. Will definitely be back again.
Great food service was ok.. the waitress seemed not interested in our experience.. she was just there to do her job. Didn’t seem to know much about the menu . Didn’t add value to our experience.
Service was really slow... and inattentive. Then towards the end of our meal, they asked us if we could hurry up as the next reservation was waiting.
The food at Laili is always superb. But when we dined there a few days ago, the service was not quite a professionally wonderful as it usually is. We had a terrific yummy dinner, and Laili is one the very best restaurants in Santa Cruz.
The courtyard was quiet and relaxing on a weekday evening in spring. My lamb shank and beet salad were delicious with a glass of Malbec, and the cardamom pistachio ice cream is a personal favorite for dessert. Service was attentive and efficient. I would have given five stars across the board, but my companion reported that his fillet was too chewy. Laili’s is at the top of my list for dining out in Santa Cruz!
We've dined out only nine times since March 15, 2020, due to the pandemic and all of those times were outside seating. Four of those dinners were at Laili which in addition to offering excellent cuisine at tractable prices, also has been top notch about safety. Highly recommended.
Great food and service in the courtyard. Lovely way to spend an evening.
