  • Good, but not Great

    The decor seemed a little outdated or 80's to me. The acoustics in the room were fairly poor to the point where we could hear every word of other parties' conversations. The food was good - I would have like to see a little bit "more". I got the herb lemon butter salmon, but it would have been even better with a good sauce on it. My date ordered the snapper, and we felt the same about his. Dessert was great. Be careful to double check your bill - we ordered a pitcher of sangria and the price on our bill was different than the price on the menu. She fixed it, but it seemed odd at first because the price on the bill was 1/3 higher than the price on the menu. "Valet parking" in this building is a joke - we had to retrieve our own car.

    We dine out on the east side of Hollywood/Hallandale. This is the best food that we've found. We love the crabcakes and the fish entrees. I've brought business associates there, and they rave about the ribs.

    Working at a restaurant myself, I find myself always critiquing when I eat out. Lola's was a great experience. Our server was friendly, personable, and attentive to our needs. She was knowledgable about wines which led us to pick Tomero - excellent. The food was also excellent.. All 4 of us completely cleaned our plates. Overall, experience exceeded my expectations and we definitely will be back!

    The restaurant has a great view of the ocean and the decor somewhat eclectic. The appetizers were very good (salmon tartar and blue cheese croquettes). The service was great, our waitress catered to us. However while my fish was good, my husband's steak was not. Expecting a great steak from an Argentinian restaurant, he asked to see what her recommendation - ribeye. Not your usual Argentinian cut but he went with it. Not good. However still would recommend the restaurant and willing to give it another shot.

    the apps were very tasty however the dinner failed to meet the quality of the apps. The steaks were small thin and over cooked. suggest to go for cocktails and apps and for the south beachy atmosphere........at a lower cost not so hard on your wallet.

    Housed in a Miami Beach condo complex, you may wonder like we did if you arrived at the right address. Don't let the outside of this building deceive you. This is a beautiful upscale restaurant, with fantastic food, exceptional service, and reasonable prices. We enjoyed appetizers of mussels and spicy shrimp. Both were beautifully presented and delicious. Perfection would have been a couple more shrimp. For entrees we enjoyed perfectly cooked skirt steak and flap steak with amazing sauces. Both the trio of chimichurri sauces and the mushroom bacon wine reduction sauce were delicious and paired beautifully with the steak. We ended our meal with the delectable warm chocolate brownie with chocolate ice cream. All I can say is Yum!

    I took my daughter to this restaurant because I read previous reviews and it seem like they had good food and ambiance. When we got there, there was only 2 other tables, the server came right away and told us about the specials for that night. I ordered an appetizer, 15 minutes later, I had to call him to order a glass of wine. He brought the appetizer and the glass of wine. The restaurant started to get busier, about 9 tables, there was only one server, and a buzzer. We had to wait about 40 minutes more, I called the buzzer and told him we wanted to put our order. He took our order, because the server never came back. I ordered a second glass of wine. And he forgot it. It was the worse service I have ever had. I would never go back.

    This restuarant is in the most unusual place, a condo buildings 2nd floor, get past the lobby and the spiral staircase and you'll find Lola. This small but lovely "Lola" is well appointed with a contemporary flare. We chose to sit outside because of the beautiful evening, there were some interesting appetizers and main choices, plated nicely and plentiful. My salmon was a little over cooked, the shrimp were sweet and spicy, just the was they said they would be. Wine choices were good although one that was chosen was out, but a good substitution with a taste before was provided. My only "beef " with outside dining it seems is that is where the smokers are put and we had some around us, bah! Smoking and food don't mix.

    Overall, this was the best dining experience in Miami Beach. For the money this cannot be beat. The food tasted fresh and was well prepared. The setting is "odd" in that you overlook a pool in a condo complex, but once the meal starts, that becomes the focus.

    Found this restaurant in some reviews- hidden away in older condo building. Surprisingly chic attractive restaurant inside. Service very friendly food very good and prices not Miami like ( my 8 oz filet only $20). Great ceviche and mussels appetizers. I'm sure a lot of people would overlook this restaurant, but my family loved it.

    Went there for the first time this past VDay and liked it. Kind of expected it to be bigger and less discreet. Food was great and service was good as well. The only thing that was a bummer was that they only serve wine & beer. Menu could use some variety as well.

    I tried the Mussels and this was an amazing appetizer something to remember. But the main dish, the Flap was wrong, my wife plate was given to me to me and mine given to her, had different side, spices and cook level, so was not able to exchange plates, the mistake was made in the kitchen, neither the meat was as a good flaps i have tried before. Servers were nice, polite, and willing to please their guest, but a bit delayed in responding to the needs of the table, due to overwhelming work load. The valet parking person changed my radio station in my car, and who knows what else.

    Me and my girlfriend were flying by the seat of our pants on NYE and opentable and yelp both showed good reviews for Lola and they had availability, we took a chance without even seeing a menu. Good is great, staff is super friendly and considering it's Miami beach the prices were insanely reasonable. Highly recommend.

    This restaurant is located in a condo complex with virtually no street advertising. Nevertheless, it is a gem and well worth a visit. The room is well appointed, the staff are very friendly and helpful, the food is truly wonderful and the presentation is outstanding. The chef/owner, Christian, is an artist who cares deeply about what he is creating all the way from the market to your table. All this at reasonable prices for the area. I highly recommend this place. You wont be disappointed!
