With some visiting relatives from out of town, seven of us had dinner at La Flor last night at the one large table. Pico had fresh halibut with a spicy sauce that 3 of us loved. Lamb osso bucco was met with mixed reactions and my mixed seafood grill was as fine as usual.
The space is small and the tables close together. This is the first time we have been there when every table was taken and, as happy as we were for the owners, it was not the most pleasant experience. Very close to us, inches away, was another large group of about 5 people who were having a great time and laughing and talking at tremendous volume. Levity is great for enjoying good food, but when it is in your face, it can be a problem.
Pico did admirably with a full house, but my recommendation is to go during the week, if you can, and enjoy the terrific and with a less intense experience. The food is wonderful and our halibut was $12.95, a little more reasonable for his low prices, but still a bargain. We also had a crab salad as an appetizer that was superb.
