Nice menu variety, service is top shelf! Never had a bad experience here. Wait staff are very well trained. If I were to open a restaurant, I would model it after L May.

We enjoyed a Sunday evening dinner here tonight. We tried the Chilean Salmon, Pork Shanks, and Tacos al pastor. The dessert tray is very tempting too, but we passed on this visit. All of the dishes were very flavorful.

I was in town for one night and had dinner with a friend. I selected L May Eatery because of the gluten free options, particularly the pizza. I had a fresh margarita to start (no mixers here!), and then tried two different red wines from...More
