Delightful Night Out, and I'm not was to please

Dined on April 23, 2016

We hadn't dined at Lola's on Harrison for since it was the new kid on the block. We decided to have another go and we were not disappointed. I was initially concerned at the low turn out at the height of dinner rush on a Saturday.Our service, food and experience--all very good--lent no insight to the lack of patronage. The Bartender gladly found a delicious alternative to grapefruit juice in the cocktail I wanted from the specialty drink menu and the manchego cheese we had as an appetizer was creamy and tangy and a perfect combination with the flatbread, marcona almonds and fig spread. Both my date and I ordered from the "specials" menu. Our wildly diverse food (mine Italian, his american southern) were really superbly prepared. The wine list, while compact, was thoughtful and well-priced. Would go again for sure and would encourage anyone to try.

The food was really good, especially my wife's pork chop. The service was excellent even though it appeared they were down at least one (or two!) servers/bussers. The bartender and hostess both chipped in with service and we never felt neglected for an instant. As general manager of a NYC restaurant, I was impressed. I will definitely go to Lola's again.

Lola's is Lovely!

Dined on March 29, 2016

From beginning to end, our experience at Lola's was simply first rate. The food was delicious; excellent appetizers including salmon tartare; baked brie with fig jam, honey and almonds atop special crackers. The fish was prepared very well; branzino was accompanied by an eggplant ratatouille and rice. The grouper was also very tasty. Lola's has a laid back atmosphere; the bar is fun and drinks are very well prepared. It won't be long before we go back!!

Dined on March 12, 2016

Celebrating an anniversary, we dined at Lola's with close friends. We had requested a quiet table, and were seated immediately upon our arrival in a more private area of the restaurant. Our needs were immediately met; waitstaff was attentive yet not overpowering. Both the food and drinks were perfect. We spoke with the owner on our way out and she was extremely lovely and very personable. Lola's was a new choice for us in downtown Hollywood. We will all be back.

Dined on March 12, 2016

My husband and I went on a Friday night with 7pm reservations, my husband didn't know where to park and the hostess was gracious enough to walk out to our car and personally give him directions. The restaurant is beautiful with a touch of new age urban chic. Our waitress Nicole was super attentive - actually the entire staff was very responsive and friendly. They have a full bar and the drinks are delicious. For starters we ordered the Onion soup and steamed mussels in a white wine sauce. The soup was very good but my husband didn't like the wine sauce he said it was watery and the mussels were sandy but don't let that discourage you because the food is delicious. Main course I had the Coca Cola beef ribs YUM and he had the Lamb chops that he raved over. Oh and let's not forget dessert! The bread pudding was prepared by angels! Overall great experience.

Took out of town guests for dinner on Tuesday night. Dinner was great and out party of 5 wasn't rushed before, during and after dinner. We did close the place, but mercifully, there was none of the eye-rolling so often encountered when the staff wants you to go so they can close.

Food was excellant, had a seabass at the suggestion of the waiter which was second to none. My sweatheart had a keylime cheese cake for desert which was also great. Enjoyed every minute we spent there. We will be back.

Went for valentine's day dinner. We have been a few times, and always enjoy the food and ambiance. They have a great beer and wine section, with really good micro-brews. The Wedge Caesar salad was fresh and tasty, and the Branzino fish was outstanding. My wife loves the veggie sides, would just order a few of those if I let her. All in all, we love the place and are always happy to go back.

We were staying at Turnberry Isle, and wanted to find a local neighborhood dining option. Lola tuned out to be one of the best meals we have had in a long time. We travel, we eat, we live in Atlanta, fine dining on every corner... and this place was impressive. Long Bone Pork Chop, Grouper, and the Coca-Cola ribs looked good as well. A total pleasure.

Tough turkey!

vip
Dined on November 26, 2015

Thanksgiving turkey was tough! It appeared to be turkey roll rather than fresh turkey breast. When a steak knife was presented, I was concerned as we had ordered a traditional turkey dinner not something that should require a steak knife. However, it was needed as turkey was so tough. It was covered with too much bland gravy. This is too bad as soups, side dishes, and dessert pies all were all very good. They are the only reason that food was not rated poor. We have gone to Lola's on Harrison for Thanksgiving dinner as well as one or two times during the year for the past several years. While they had gone from the small tender ribs to large ribs, which I did not care for, the last time that I had them, we have never been so disappointed as we were with this holiday dinner. Unless we can be assured that they will never serve this type of turkey again, we will be looking for some place else for Thanksgiving dinner next year!
