Respond to Review of Au Lac Fountain Valley
Review: The last time I visited Au Lac a few months ago I was pleased to notice a change in the overall decor and appearance of the restaurant. It looks like a completely different place...they've added a bar area complete with marble counters and colored glass light fixtures adjacent to every booth. Luckily, this change has not affected the delicious menu items that many patrons have grown to love. Every time I go to Au Lac the restaurant is crowded so you might have to wait a few minutes to get a table. The fresh, raw food menu is worth the wait. I usually order the vegan "salmon" rolls which arrive loaded with crisp veggies and a slightly sweet dipping sauce. In the past, I used to order off the regular menu until I found out that the majority of the items are not vegan (the faux meats contain whey). Many of the servers seemed confused when I asked which regular menu items were vegan. On the plus side, the staff was very attentive and kept refilling my water glass and checking up on us. The waiter informed me that the menu would be changing in the spring to reflect the new, improved decor. Try Au Lac before the switch to a new menu because I anticipate an increase in prices to attract a more "up scale" clientele.
