Wonderful dining experience with awesome food and service. Thank you. The added touch of a special complimentary desert with Moet to celebrate our wedding anniversary was very nice and greatly appreciated.

Ihad the lamb and it was beautifully cooked to perfection. My wife and I shared the Chocolate Mousse dessert and we both remarked that it was "yummy". We will be back.

We have previously enjoyed dining at the Lava. However, we found this past experience to be fairly disappointing. The service was slow with lengthy gaps between courses. The food while tasty was also below our expectations. The eye fillet was sinuous and the octopus was tough. The dishes were served at a less than ideal temperature. Overall we are less inclined to revisit the Lava restaurant and could not recommend it as highly as we would like to.

Ray An oustanding meal and service at Lava Dining. I shared the meal with family who I consider are particularly fussy when it comes to the quality of food and service. We have dined there on other occassions. They are looking forward to another dining experience in thefuture with Lava Dining.

Really enjoyable evening- the staff were helpful, polite and appropriately attentive. We had the set menu for restaurant month and the food was excellent. The wines were well matched although there was no commentary from the wait staff as to what we were drinking and why. Other than that, would definitely recommend

What a stunning restaurant. Greeted and treated like real guests at this place. Little touches like fresh lemon offered on a tray with the sparkling water, smoked butter on warm crusty breads - what a great way to start a delicious dinner. Food was exquisite. Plating was awesome and unfortunately we were too ful to try the desserts. First time at Lava and will certainly be back again.

We had the 3 course menu and it was amazing. I especially enjoyed the octopus entree. The potion sizes were very generous given the quality. Would definitely recommend to others.
