Excellent as always - food, cocktails, service! Love the music as well. One of our favorite restaurants.
My husband and I had a wonderful date night here, the server (Stephanie?) was wonderful and attentive and the food was amazing. There was a live trio singing as well over all it was a wonderful experience.
Our service was great, the food was delicious, but I requested a round table and the hostess told me they only had two round tables and both were reserved. I requested one when I made the reservation on Open Table and in the three hours (7 pm - 10 pm) that we were there NO ONE was ever seated at the round table next to us. My group kept looking over at the table because sitting at a long table makes having a conversation more difficult. Since they are a local restaurant, I would probably call and make a reservation directly through them to have a better chance of getting a round table. Our waitress and food made up for not having the round table.
Great place to eat before a show at Parx Casino. We went on a Thursday night, they had a singer and piano player. Food was fantastic! The desserts were very good too. Service was very attentive.
3 friends had dinner together. Our bartender and server was Sean(?), who provided excellent service and conversation. He was pretty busy that evening, but the service was great.
Off night (Tuesday), the place was very empty but the service, food and overall experience was great. It was my first time there, although my partner had been before. We will definitely go again.
Thief made our experience celebrating our anniversary even more special with the great food and friendly staff they have
Thank you .
One of the best dining experiences I have ever had. The service was exceptional and the food I can’t even begin to complement the chef. Excellent excellent!! Will be back very soon.!!
Very quaint and nice atmosphere for a local venue!!
As noted in reviews, food, service and atmosphere were all excellent. Only issue was there was a wedding reception going on in side room so noise level was on high side. But I’m sure that is an exception, not the rule. Would definitely return.
We've lived 5 minutes from this restaurant for over 30 years. It took us a few years to discover its great quality, but now we go once a month or so. The food and service is outstanding!!!
I had been meaning to come to La Cena for some time, but found myself in Bensalem Friday night and it was a wise choice. Cathy, the hostess, was gracious and informative. The music was entertaining, but was not overbearing in volume and made conversation easy. Our server, Stephanie, was efficient, friendly and courteous. I had a mixed seafood grille that was very good as was the butternut squash bisque. I look forward to returning to La Cena for more great food and entertainment!
Food was great. Service was outstanding.
Great food as usual but service was definitely slower than the last few times we came. Overall still a great place to just relax
Overall great dining experience. Food and service was great but it was a bit loud because of the band.
The service was outstanding. Sam the waiter was fabulous. The bus boy was incredible. The hostess even pitched in and was amazing.
My reservations we ready when we arrived, the food was great our server paid attention to every detail of our order. The live entertainment was above Great. It was my sisters birthday and everything was excellent. Totally enjoyable!!
Both good and service were excellent!
I have been here several times now and it is vastly becoming my go to spot. Really enjoy the food immensely.
Great upscale restaurant with great atmosphere and service. Life music on Saturday nights is very moderate sound and pleasant, even so we were sitting right next to it. Food is excellent and beautifully served. Little pricey then we would like. Could be a little cooler inside, but we were told there was a problem that day. We definitely will go there again. Everybody were very friendly and made us feel special. And best of all it's only 10 min from our home. Very recommended.
Love this place...food, service and ambience wonderful. It’s a shame I didn’t know about it sooner. Will definitely be back.
We were seeing a show at the Parx Casino and wanted something away from the Casino - fine dining. There were six of us and each and everyone of us raved about the food. It was amazing. The Grouper, the homemade pasta and marinara, appetizers were wonderful. The wine was out of this world - we had two bottles of Amarone. Delicious. The waiter (Stephen) was great - took extra special care of us and was so friendly and nice. We will go out of our way to go back. Thanks for a great meal and a wonderful dining experience. The entertainment was great too BRAVO!!!
Food was average to below average service was ok
Told the server we had 2 birthdays. Told them who. Desert came and they did not use candles or acknowledge it one bit. We were one of two tables in the entire restaurant.
Great food! Great music and entertainment! Overall great experience!
This was our first visit to La Cena. We were seated relatively quickly, although the hostess was on a phone call, and did not acknowledge our presence until she hung up. The food was quite good. I had the seared shrimp and scallops, and my wife tried a veal dish. We were both very satisfied with the food quality. Service was a bit spotty. Our waiter only showed up to take orders and deliver them. That seemed to take some time, and the place was not at all busy when we were there. We might go back, but it likely would not be a first choice.
We have been going here for years, including some New Year's Eves. The food and service are always excellent!
This has always been one of our favorite places to go. We especially liked it for special occasions. We were celebrating our 52 Wedding Anniversary. When I made the reservation I requested a table AWAY from the Bar and music. If we were seated any closer to the bar we would have been on it. The menu has changed drastically since we were there last. It very limited in its selections. We both ordered Veal dishes extremely disappointed in flavor and texture in both dishes. Sadly to say it was not one of our happy Anniversary dinners. We won’t be going back .
Fantastic service and amazing food. The singers are extremely entertaining and make dinner a wonderful experience. We have dined here several times and have always had a great night out! Highly recommend!
Food was extraordinarily good, nicely presented, unique tastes. Prices were also reasonable. A great find.
We were the only table in the restaurant as we had quite an early reservation. Our table was lovely. The server was fantastic. He relayed the specials information and we both ordered specials. My wife got filet Mignon stuffed with sautéed spinach and prosciutto. She enjoyed it but there was a sauce with a very overpowering amount of whole peppercorns. I got the caprese salad which was very good, made with a smoked mozzarella for lots of interesting flavor. It did take 50 minutes for our food to arrive and we had a show to get to in Philadelphia by 7:30. We felt a little rushed once food came. The cocktails were lovely, very nice recipes and variety. Pretty and tasty. We were visitors from out of town and located this restaurant on yelp/trip advisor.
Food was great and the service was very friendly.
A great place for a weekday business dinner. The staff was professional, the meals were great.
This was my first time here. Was a great experience. The food, service and atmosphere were all wonderful. I never knew this restaurant was there and ai have lived in this area my entire life. Found out about it from Open Table. Will definitely be returning and will spread the word about it. Great find!
Great food, beautiful restaurant. Went for late lunch and totally enjoyed the food. Lunch specials were priced we and nice selection of choices. This was our second visit, the first was for dinner. We found a new favorite and can't wait to go back.
Excellent food, decor, music, and ambience. Service was a bit lacking in that we had to wait to get someone to notice us to take our order while another larger group who arrived after us was served first. Things improved after that initial hiccup however. The food was top notch with a decent every day menu and delicious daily specials on offer. I'll definitely be back.
It was very crowded (good for the restaurant), food is much better than it used to me.
Service was fairly good considering the crowd, not the wait staff fault. The bus boys are very
attentive, We will return.
Fantastic food and our server was first rate. I highly reccomend this restaurant!
Great restaurant! I didn't know what to expect pulling up, but once inside it was very nice and classy. The food was great, service was great and we enjoyed it. I will come back again.
Outsatanding from start to finish. The staff was very accomadating. Our server, Steve, was very personable and added to the meal. The food was spot on in flavor and preparation.
