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.
I have been going there since they opened. Have had several parties there also.Great atmosphere. Food is always good,as well as service.
This was my first time here. Food was delicious, a little on the pricey side. Ambience was good. Music (duo) was an added benefit!
Good food and drink are to be found at this hidden little treasure. Their live music is good, and we'd like it even better if La Cena would have it on even more fine evenings !
Love this place. Found it recently and had to come back. I had a scallop special that I will try to duplicate at home because it was so amazing. Can't wait to come back
Our server, Mike was outstanding and the food came out hot and delicious.
I was with 5 other women on Saturday for our friend who is moving.Everyone enjoyed their food,drink and dessert. The waiter Michael was so nice and very professional. Exveptional food and service.I cant wait to take my husband there soon. I was there at my girls Christmas luncheon in December and also had Michael . I really enjoy your restaurant and look forward to coming again real soon.I will recommend LeCena to all of my friends.Thank you for a great evening .
This visit was to celebrate a birthday.
My girlfriend had a great time.
Her salmon was good, she definitely enjoyed the dinner entertainment.
She has already requested another visit.
My husband and I went here for our wedding anniversary. It had a fun vibe, the staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious! He had veal parmigiana, I had the penne alla vodka and it was perfect!
The food and service was superb. We loved the atmosphere, too -- the live musician was very good and played selections totally appropriate to the environment.
The food is delicious and the staff are friendly. Nice neighborhood gem! My wife & I will definitely return!
Date night with my wife was great, food was cooked well, a bit loud near bar though
Always a phenomenal time.
Both my husband and I ordered the specials and were not disappointed! Excellent dinner.
Food was great, server was awesome and the band they had was so good!! We had a really enjoyable time. Will definitely be back!!!
I’m always impressed with the way this restaurant is run from the wonderful hostess to the wait staff to the bus people!!
In addition, the food is delicious!!
Nice live music at this good restaurant, on selected evenings .
Made reservation and told it was a mistake by open table. Seated at a high top in the bar area which was fine. Brought bread and water. No server comes over for drink or good order. Waited 15 minutes then told we had to get our own drinks at the bar. Decided to leave at this point. First bad experience here ever.
SATURDAY NIGHT, BUSTLING, NICE PEOPLE, DECENT FOOD, BIG MENU, FOOD COULD BE BETTER, 1980'S FEEL.
