Lapa's Costa Rican Bistro

Delicious. Fresh. Authentic.

First of all, we want to thank you for thinking of us for your celebration or event! While we wish we could accommodate everyone, sometimes it's just not possible. Please remember that we are a small, family-owned and -operated business. Our kitchen is cozy, and staff and seating are limited. Our entire restaurant only seats up to 60 people at a time. We've come up with the following policies in order to ensure that everything runs as smooth as possible. Keep in mind that larger parties take more time and resources. 

Parties of 1-12 People:

You may visit us any time you'd like! However, please remember that we do not take reservations. If your party is of 6-12 people, give us a call to make sure we have tables open, or so we can try and hold a couple tables open for you. The earlier you come in for dinner, the more tables we'll have available. 

Parties of 13-15 People: (MUST CALL. No Reservations. No Fridays, Saturdays, or Sundays)

While we do not take reservations, you must call ahead to make sure we have tables open, or so we can try and hold a couple tables open for you, and so we can be prepared to accommodate a party of this size. We may not be able to accommodate such large parties during peak lunch and dinner hours, especially during the weekends and during season. If you do not call ahead, we will more than likely not have any room for you. The best time to plan a visit for a party of 13-15 people would be between 3 PM - 5 PM, Tuesday - Thursday when we usually have more tables available. Parties of 13-15 people will be provided with a smaller menu featuring our most popular dishes or we can make a custom one for your party if you call us a couple days ahead.

Parties of 16-30 People: (FEE APPLIES. No Fridays, Saturdays, or Sundays)

If you would like to visit us with a larger group of up to 30 people, please give us a call to see if we can accommodate you. Since larger parties require more space, a fee of $750 (for a 4 hour period) will apply to rent out half of our restaurant. A smaller menu featuring our most popular dishes will be provided or we can make a custom one for your party if you call us a couple days ahead.

Parties of 31-60 People: (FEE APPLIES)

Such large parties would take up most or all of our available seating which means we would have to close down the restaurant to the public. Please give us a call to see if we can accommodate you. A fee of $2,000 (for a 4 hour period) will apply to rent out the entire restaurant. A smaller menu featuring our most popular dishes will be provided or we can make a custom one for your party.

Catering:

While our seating may be limited, we can always prepare large quantities of food for your event that you can pick up. Give us a call to discuss options.
