Diner Reviews
  • "it's bad when your wait staff doesn't speak enough English to help you with the menu and has to lend you a phone because it was so dark you couldn't read the menu! Also the menu needs to have enough explanation that you are comfortable ordering. This place, although beautiful and old historic, was not fun. The food was good, but so are a lot of places very close by. I wouldn't go back."

  • "We had been considering Casa Lola for our wedding reception. But when we dined there they seated us almost 20 minutes after our reservation time. We had a 12 year old boy with us so they seemed to sit us in the "kid section" back by the kitchen. Noisy babies and large families. We felt like we were in a Denny's. The waitress was great but the food was over cooked (Mahi Mahi). We did like their sweet bread appetizer. We think this might be a good place for couples but we we will never know. It is crossed off our list. This did not turn out well. I am so disappointed because we had heard so much good. This was very disappointing. It seems that maybe they are better set up for the tourist crowd."

  • "Casa Lola had a nice vibe, big tables full of groups dining together, live music, generous food with big flavors, and some nice drinks ranging from mojitos to acai liquor. Definitely worth checking out when in Condado."

  • "I was in San Juan for just five days. Casa Lola was reccommended and once i went, I had to go back before I left. It was delicious! The skirt steak and chicken kabobs were outstanding. The house bread is also a real treat. You should go."

  • "A friend recommended this restaurant to me. I was eager to try it given the reputation of the chef. The food was so-so and the service was horrible. I would not recommend it or return to it on future trips to San Juan."

  • "We arrived about 10 minutes early for a 7:30 reservation, we were told that we needed to wait until the reservation time as the main dining room was full. Meanwhile, another group came in with no reservation and was also given a 15 minute wait time. We were OK with this and decided to wait at the bar. While at the bar, we see an 2 empty tables that could accomodate us ... giving the benefit of the doubt, we thought that this was not the "main dining room". Lo and behold, 7:30 comes, and voila, we were seated at this table that was already empty when we arrived. To make matters worse, the group without reservation was seated about 5 minutes before us ! Regarding the food, stay away from the seafood bouillabaisse, its VERY salty."

  • "At Lola's you're always going to receive wonderful fresh flavors in traditional Puerto Rican dishes. The chefs at Lola's do an amazing job offering many dilightful tastes with a simple yet good amount of dishes on the menu to choose from. I dislike menu's that are too long and Lola's has just enough to give everyone a good verity without be too lengthy."

  • "I've eaten at Casa Lola before and the food was great. On this visit, we arrived for our reservation and were told by the hostess they were closed. I pointed out the website said they were open for 3 more hours and she waved us off saying she knows the website is wrong and to leave. It was bizarre on multiple levels and more than anything, a call to tell us they would be closing early instead of being met by this person who appeared angry with us for wanting to eat there would have been great."

  • "I definitely recommend Casa Lola. It's a very popular place with great ambiance, reminded me of some place out of Miami. All the food was good but I'd have to say to go for the Beef Mofongo; that was probably the best thing I tasted there. The service was great too."

  • "Great view of the water from the dining room. Service was good as the staff stays on top of things. Nice wine list and good food options. It was more expensive than I recall Open Table listing, but still good food."

  • "We had some very nice cocktail and starters and main course in this energetic place, where we found quite a lot of people, quite closely packed, and groups of longer tables which were quite noisy (but that may be the local way of doing :-)). Overall a nice experience, would recommend."

  • "Casa Lola is a great restaurant! It combines the authentic Puerto Rican and local flavors with American cuisine. The food is very, very good. We have been to San Juan 3 times in the last 18months and Casa Lola is always a stop for us."

  • "We wanted authentic Puerto Rican food and Casa Lola came highly rated. The place was packed and a bit noisy with large groups dining. The service was excellent, very quick, spoke English flawlessly and helped with special dietary restrictions. We decided to try 5 or 6 appetizers and most were delicious. The crab cake in plantain was absolutely the best. The vegetarian mofongo was a disappointment as was the calamari. Tuna tartare was served like a Taquiro with a hard shell made with cod fish and the dipping sauce was very joy - this was one of the best mix of flavors. Really enjoyed the mixed salad as well. The red Sangria is as good as all the reviews say. Would definitely come back."

  • "We made reservation and were seated promptly. Our service was great until a large party of about 40 people were seated in the same small room (we were asked to move down a table to accommodate them) and then our service disappeared and we were unable to even carry on a conversation it was so loud. We were not offered another drink, water was not refilled… we couldn't get out of there fast enough- felt like we crashed someone else's party. Food was good - but we didn't enjoy the ambience AT ALL."

  • "I spent 10 days in the San Juan area, which has a number of excellent restaurants, with great food, ambiance and service. Casa Lola far surpassed my dining experiences in all other restaurants on this trip. Food was the absolute best--mofongo was exquisite, sauce sublime--, service impeccable, attentive and also very genuine and a lovely atmosphere with the lagoon view. But what put it way over the top, amazingly, was when the manager came over to ask about my dining experience; when he found I was motivated to walk from my hotel to come to Casa Lola he escorted me to and paid for a car service to take me back to my hotel. I felt like I was treated like family. This place should be in a top 10 listing for San Juan--no question."

  • "We had 2 LOUD drinking non-eating diners behind us that set the noisy tone for this evening. They should have been in the bar, not the restaurant. Service was confusing; multiple waiters were checking on our table getting drink orders, etc. Food was ok, but for the price expected a higher quality experience."

  • "What a great find this place is! The food and service were excellent. Highly recommend the tuna tartar and the ceviche appetizer. Crab cakes also good and skirt steak best we have ever had. Elmer the bartender is also a gem. Try the sangria!"

  • "I took my parents there for their birthday. We arrived at 4:30pm. It was nice and calm and quite, i assume at night time there are more people but we were looking for quite so it was perfect for us. When we entered we were greeted by a hostess and we were given the opportunity to choose the table we preferred. We ordered the food that came out in a reasonable amount of time and were amazed by the beauty and the large amount of food on each plate. The taste matched the beauty. We loved everything, had no regrets. The price of the food was reasonable as well. I would definitely recommend Casa Lola to anyone and i can't wait to go back!! Great food, service, atmosphere and great money’s worth."

  • "Food wise, I'm giving this a below average rating. Avoid the fried chorizo and the paella. The brisket on the paella was 90% fat and inedible. When I pointed this out to my server, instead of trying to remedy this or even apologize, she thanked me for sharing this information with her. Moving onto the service, she appeared to be robotically trained. She was attentive but not sincere. She clearly was there to push product, not act as a professional restaurant attendant. After a week of fine dining in PR, this restaurant unfortunately dropped to the bottom of the list. On the plus side, the venue is centrally located and nicely decorated inside. For me, it is all about the food and experience and this one fell short on both."

  • "We have stayed in Condado many times but have always passed by Casa Lola for some reason but after reading good reviews we decided to try Casa Lola and loved it. The atmosphere is very nice including a really nice bar area and dining room. The service was outstanding from all the employees including the hostess who actually read our reservation request. Our waiter, Juan, answered all of our questions about the menu and made some excellent recommendations while providing great service. I had a rum specialty cocktail called Agua Fresca which was outstanding. All of our food was fantastic which included a ceviche appetizer, churrasco steak and paella. I would definitely recommend Casa Lola for some great food and outstanding service."

  • "Great restaurant in Condado. The food is really good but the service is extremely slow (Bake in about 2 hours for a meal). Great selection of items on the menu; would highly recommend the skirt steak. The restaurant is nice and roomy enough for big groups. Nice big bar to grab a drink before dinner. As for a table right by the window which faces the water."
