La Luna Bistro
Posted by Ted Ackerman on 03/13/2015
I read the reviews of La Luna Bistro and was tempted to call my friend who made the reservation and have him cancel it. Then I reconsidered and decided to make my own decision. From the moment we entered La Luna we had excellent attentive service. Our waiter was a true gem who was extremely courteous and constantly checking to see if we needed anything. When our food was being served, one member of our party was at the restroom, so the waiter took his meal back to the kitchen to keep it warm and returned with it as soon as my friend returned to our table. I can honestly say that I have never experienced a more attentive waiter, and to top it off, the food was excellent!

Sunset menu seemed like good value but not when they charge $3.50 extra for a side portion of overcooked gluten-free pasta. Service and manager's attitude were shocking. Had to search for own our waiter for everything. To be fair, our waiter was very nice, but 20 minutes to get a glass of wine and 45+ minutes between salad and entree were ridiculous. When we complained, the manager said of we didn't like it, we could leave. After investing 1.5 hrs, and being hungry, we stayed. Probably should have picked up from a pizza joint for 1/3 the price Place is quite popular with the older, early-bird crowd who don't mind slow service, dated decor and unexceptional food. Guess that formula works for them.

We had a coupon and on Saturday night were told upon calling to come over. We were seated immediately and our server was at the table with a big smile and lots of information. We ordered wine, which was buy one get one and two entrees.....for $2.50 more, we ordered one salad and munched on garlic bread while enjoying our salad and wine. Our entrees were huge ...one was Shrimp Scampi in a White wine and Lemon sauce. The 5 shrimp were huge and dish was very appealing and flavorful. The second Entree was a Chicken Sorrentino...which is two large chicken cutlets with Spinach, and mushrooms w/a lite tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese atop eggplant. A side of pasta came with. The dish was amazing! This restaurant was a wonderful experience and we will definitely return!

Poor service, poor food quality swimming in sauce. Could not substitute veggie for pasta without extra charge - never heard of that anywhere else. Overpriced. Due to several problems spoke to manager/owner not sure which as well as bartender. Both had arrogant attitudes. Will never go back!

We are year-round Boca residents and my Mother has patronized La Luna for 22 years (she lives across the street at Delaire). Tonight, she asked for her salad be chopped as she always has ordered and the waiter said that would be an additional $2.00 to chop your salad!! My sister asked if she could substitute her side of pasta for a vegetable, and the waiter said that would be an additional $4.95!! Both of these requests had been granted for years and as recently as 2 weeks ago. I asked to speak to the manager or owner who came over and was very arrogant nd said his people in the back were too busy to chop a salad, but for $2 they would do it. He turned away in disgust. We had to send our meals back b/c they were cold, and the veal was tough like leather. We will never return to La Luna and will ask that all our friends do the same.

I brought some colleagues to La luna the other day for a late lunch. When we arrived, there was only one table seated, yet after 10 minutes if just standing at the door, we decided we may as well seat outselves. The food was slightly above average however the service destroyed any credibility the food had. We started being served by what seemed the owners son or family member who had a delightful habit of throwing whatever he was serving you on the table. I have never eaten at a restaurant where your appetizer, main course and bread basket are literally thrown at you. Not only that, the head waiter/owner i assume just stood there watching and had nothing to say. The wait staff was overall loud, obnoxious and disrespectful. Will never return to this place again.
