Decided to visit LP for the first time last night, in celebration of my sister's birthday. Am originally from San Francisco, so I was curious to try it out, as I've read mixed reviews from others on this site.
First off, the restaurant phoned me earlier in the day to confirm my reservation, and remembered that I requested a booth (one of the funky ones with the curtains for added privacy). Arrived a few minutes before 8pm, the hostess said one of the booths was just finishing up dessert. We were seated just a few minutes after, not before sampling a delicious mojito (slightly pulpy, freshly pounded mint, very refreshing, even comes with a cute animal on the glass).
Ordered the goat cheese fondue w/apples and french bread ($8), along with the Hawaiian poke w/crispy wontons ($9). Both appetizers were delicious and were devoured completely.
I selected the stuffed pork cutlet w/apple-cranberry sauce, string beans and mashed potatoes ($14). Delicious! My sister got the ravioli w/mushrooms, and my other friend got the sea bass, both of which looked really good.
We got the vanilla creme brulee w/hazelnut shortbread (again wonderful) and the homemade s'mores, which were great fun to eat. So interactive, and the combination really works.
The restaurant was packed, but the booth indeed helped in that we could hear ourselves talk. Loved the food, the service was great (our waitress was really friendly, and remembered that it was my sister's birthday). No complaints on my end, so I recommend it without hesitation.
