Le Cafe in Westlake

Ate here today for a private party. Such events are nicely accommodated as they have an outdoor patio which is relatively private (have attended 3 parties here in last two years).

Food is not bad, but nothing to write home about. What surprised me about this spot in a high-rent district is the poor service. The waiter was REALLY, REALLY nice and friendly, but overall delivery of food was crazy slow...almost a full 40 minutes for a party of eight and we only ordered sandwiches and salads.

Forgot one side dish for a baby and then came back thirty minutes later after we ordered it and said "they couldn't make mashed potatoes until after 6pm". By this time child is very agitated, so we ask them to throw together a P&J...this came 20 min later, and a bit after adults had their food.

They held a cake for us which was delivered 3 hrs before our arrival....it hadn't been refrigerated all day in 100 degree Valley heat even though we confirmed they could b4 making the reservations.

Can't recommend this place.
