We love Bravas! We ate dinner outside last night. It was a bit chilly so they moved us to a different table and turned on the gas heater, which made it perfect. Everything we ordered was delicious! Highlights were the Crab Stuffed Piquillo Peppers, the Crispy Bacalao Cigarillos, and the Crispy Skin Chicken Thighs. Service was attentive and good. Bravas never disappoints!

Love the decor and feel of the place. Solid, well priced menu and wine/cocktail list. Friendly servers and staff. My only complaint is that the main entree - short rib - while excellent and flavorful was too small and a bit under salted for my taste. Same with the starter meatballs-while it was a good portion size for a starter, it could have used a bit more salt.

My husband and I came to Layla to celebrate our anniversary and we could not have been happier with our choice. The food was delicious and the place was beautiful, but it was the service that made our day! Christie our server was very attentive and nice. Her food recommendations were spot on! We even got a happy anniversary card, as well as complimentary wine glasses to start the evening. We would definitely recommend this restaurant and look forward to visiting again soon.

My wife and I went to Monti's last night for dinner. It wasn't too busy so the background noise was tolerable; it's noisy when really packed. The service and food were excellent, atmosphere enjoyable (we had requested, and were seated at, the table nearest to the rotisserie/fire) and we had an excellent experience - highly recommended.

This was our first-time dining at the restaurant. We were happily surprised by the lovely guitarist playing live music in the background. It provided a wonderful ambiance. The service in the beginning was moderate at best. We were told the "special soup of the day" actually wasn't available, yet the table next to ours was served the soup. We were not served bread and were later told we are required to request it. Our initial waitress disappeared, and the "director" took over our table...he was delightful and paid attention to the details. We enjoyed our appetizer and meals, but the cheesecake dessert was terrible...strange flavor and consistency. My husband ordered a Kahlua and cream which was mostly cream, and it came in a very tiny glass...not worth the price. We had a $75 dining credit as part of our room reservation which is what lead us to dining there...honestly, we may or may not dine there again on future visits. Had both positive and negative vibes to the evening.

After many discussions and efforts to secure the future of our beloved restaurant, it is with a heavy heart that we announce the closure of The Palms.
We have engaged in extensive negotiations with our landlord in an attempt to renew our lease. These discussions have been exhaustive and have ultimately left us with no other viable option but to close our doors.
We want to express our deepest gratitude to our dedicated staff, whose hard work and commitment have been the backbone of our restaurant. We also want to thank our loyal customers, without whom this venture would not have been possible.
The Palms has been a part of our community for many years, and we are incredibly grateful for the loyalty and patronage we have received from all of you. Your enthusiasm, your smiles, and your love for our food and service have been a constant source of inspiration for our entire team.
Your support has been invaluable, and we will always cherish the memories of the moments we have shared.
