The best vegan meal I have ever had. So tasty. Apparently recently changed to vegan. Didn’t miss the meat or cheese at all. Had the antipasto plate and the nacho bowl. Highly recommend.

We dined at Latin Loafer with the family before our matriarchs 90th. Other than waiting over an hour for food, this place is divine. Lost one star for time but can’t me along with this in mind. Highly recommended.

Superb service and delicious food. This is a lovely romantic restaurant. The waiter was perfection. The drinks were generous and the chef should be complimented.
