Best Restaurants in Stamford
Actually made reservations for
this place. We were seated right away, but after that the service stopped. We waited 15 minutes just for someone to stop at our table to order drinks and then after that 3 other waiters stopped by asking the same thing. Then when it came to order food the bus boy took our order . Overall the food was decent, but the service (or lack there of) really knocked this place down a peg. Don't know if we will go back here when there are better options in Stamford."

We went there on Father's Day to
celebrate the day. The restaurant had a small amount of diners, but it felt that the staff was unable to handle the crowd. It appeared that there was no manager to oversee the crew. My family (including 2 kids) were sat down promptly. We ordered drinks and then it felt like 15-20 minutes before someone our food order went in. Initially the bartender sat us down to take our drink order. Then we waited until another waitress asked if we ordered anything. Based on that, there is no manager on hand to oversee the tables. Other than the poor service, the food was pretty good. We had the guacamole, wings, empanadas, and skirt steak."

Was one of the worst places I have
eaten in a long time. Service was terrible , food was cold and took about 45-50 min come come out. The complimentary chips and salsa were brought to our table 40 min. After we were seated. They tried giving us the small glasses for our drinks ( which there is no refills) and other tables received the larger glasses we caught onto that after two tables in front of us received large glasses so we brought it to their attention and they said OOOOPS it was a mistake.

Went on weeknight with my
boyfriend and had to wait to be seated, not because the restaurant was busy but because no one noticed us standing there. Sat down and ordered margaritas (worst margarita I have ever had). Waited around 45-50 mins for appetizer and another 50 for food. Food was average. We sat in their dining area but I still had trouble hearing my boyfriend speak because the group at the bar was screaming at the nfl draft. "

Did not have to wait long. It was
Monday, Cinco de Mayo, & there were no specials but we were told that the Monday drink special (1/2 price 16 oz Grande Margaritas) would still be honored. We received our drinks in the traditional glasses it was obvious that it was not a 16 oz glass. When we questioned the size, we were told that was the glass used and yet the table next to us had 16 oz glasses (the type used for soda or beer). They were not willing to give us another drink to make up for the difference. When the check came we were charged the full price for a 16 oz Grande Margarita. This was called to the waiter's attention and he said that there were no specials on the holiday. CONTINUED SEE BELOW"

Came in the other day with a large

We came in for a friends birthday
and loved every minute of it. From start to finish the staff was attentive and drinks came out on time. The food was great and the chef brought out some of the new items they will be featuring on their upcoming menu. We will be back very soon!"

Went there for the Sangria Special
on Wednesday. Place was packed! Sangria was delicious! Service was Super!"
Dined on 4/9/2014
The food was great, but the drinks
&service, not so much! We went on their big Happy Hour night. Online we'd seen $5 Sangria pitchers & cocktails at $5, however, when at the table, we were told that people in the dining room were not allowed to order the specialty drinks (actually, what the server said was the only dining room drinks were the sangria pitchers). My friend took a chance & asked for a frozen margarita. He said fine - bit of a mixed message. The 1st margarita was so thick it had to go back & be thinned out. The 2nd tasted completely different, even in color. Food was great, but the dessert menu featured items that are not available - told after we ordered. Drinks were $12 each - ridiculous. Not going back."

The food was only OK, especially
for the price. The brisket taco was good though and worth going back for. The drink menu was not very extensive and the service was pretty good, but nothing special."

Came here with a group of 7. We
had a reservation and the table was ready when we arrived. We had great service, very prompt and checked in on us. Drinks were good and they had a good variety. Would definitely come back!! Mmm... Chicken flautas!"

I love Lola's, but it seems like
the servers disappear and never return. Waited 20 minutes to get our check."

Not the best food I've had, but
also not the worst. Great location and ambiance. Service was poor, had to ask for things multiple times."

Five people all raved about the
food. Service was a little slow at first, staff not overly friendly. Good service overall, just need to add a little warmth."

Two couples out without kids. Just

First time goers. Was New Years
Eve,,and the special menu was very thought out, even though ate off traditional daily menu. Great variety of house specials coupled with an array of traditional Mexican plates also. Highly recommend If your looking for that special Mexican meal. Only thing I would have liked which is a favorite of mine would have liked the table side freshly made guacamole to order. That would have been the "piece de resistance". And i'm also happy, as sometimes can be a bit intrusive, that there was no mariacha band hopping from table to table, overall, a great Mexican hotspot! Would go again! Thanks for a great night/meal!!"

I wish I had more positive things
to say about the restaurant. The food was ok. It wasn't bad but it wasn't special either aside from the ceviche. The tacos are small and everything is ala carte. The refried beans were as delicious and notable as any can I have opened. I am not suggesting they are canned but they too were lacking anything interesting/authentic. The 3 guacamole sampler was a bit bland. It was improved with some salt, especially the black bean guacamole. Their carne asada was good but the chimmichurri for my taste needed more garlic. The food service was good but it did take a while to place and receive drink orders. There are better meals out there. Price to value was a bit off here."

Lola's is located in a convienent
part of Stamford. We decided on this resturant due to location and casual ambiance. We arrived when it was still quiet yet service was slow and unattentive. Food was just so so. Overall, we were disappointed in our experience and will not return. Chipolte has better food."

This was our first trip to Lola's
and will probably be our last. Not because it was horrible - just because it was nothing special. It was really just bland overpriced Mexican food. We did enjoy the pitcher of Sangria although halfway through drinking it one of the waiters walked by and took it off our table. Another waiter had to chase him to the kitchen to get our $32 drink back. We order an assortment of tacos and an enchilada. The tacos were very small. The fish was good. The carnitas and brisket was ok - both tasted the same and the meat appeared to be doused in BBQ sauce. The enchilada with carnitas was bland...very bland, plus it was missing cheese. Overall I'm hoping to find some decent Mexican food elsewhere in Stamford."

This mexican food was very good --
I usually like Mexican food quite spicy, which this was not, but it had wonderful flavors. The salsa was exceptional. Very friendly staff. We enjoyed sitting at the open window watching Stamford go by. A very pleasant, casual dining experience."

Delish, fresh Mexican food. I had
Cerviche which was tender and wonderful. Flautas and Fajitas were great."

Dinner for two on a Sat
evening... The place was not too crowded (should have been my first clue), unlike nearby establishments. You would think that the regular menu entree would not be served up stone cold, but yet it was. Lousy Chimi at that... Somewhat offsetting this, my guest's entree from the special menu was very good and the wait staff was friendly and most helpful. I wanted to like this place, but I dont think I can recommned it."

I went in with a group of 8. A
Co-worker was leaving the company and we decided to go out for lunch as a group. The restaurant was quaint and there was only one other couple sitting at a corner table. When we entered there was no staff in site. We waited to be seated by the only waiter working at the time. He took our order and we waited for about 15 to 20 minutes to be served. I had the Mexi Cobb salad and the serrano-dijon vinaigrettedressing was way to spicy for my taste (Its a good thing I ordered it on the side). Its a good lunch option if you are looking for light Mexican food. My co-workers loved the tacos and the sangria was not bad either."

If you like Mexican food you will
LOVE Lola's. The food is great, the ambience is wonderful, and the service is superb. I have been there for dinner on the early side with my kids, later in the evening with my wife for a romantic dinner and also with a group of 12 for a birthday celebration and each experience was fantastic. I highly recommend Lola's"

My good friend was treating me to
a nice birthday dinner at the restaurant. The waiter came over and took our drink orders and then never came back. We had to call him over to order the appetizer and then again with the main course. The food was good but no one ever came to check to see how everything was. We had to call the waiter again to order dessert. We specifically asked him for hot lava cakes. When the desserts came out, it was cold to the touch. We complained and only 1 came back hot. Overall, it left me dissatisfied. I doubt if I will return."

Several of the reviews I've seen
here so far focused on poor service, which is not a problem I encountered. Our server showed up promptly to take our orders and stopped by during the meal to ask if we needed anything, so I was happy on that front. The food was very good as well - my steak was properly cooked to order, and the refried beans were excellent. The only real downside I found was the noise level was very high: the music was loud, and the echoy acoustics of the interior only made it worse. The lights were rather low as well, down past merely "atmospheric" to "difficult to see". On the whole I didn't mind these aspects too much, but it's probably better for a celebration like a birthday party than for a quiet date."

At this moment, with far better
choices in Stamford and surrounding towns, there is just no excuse for a restaurant to be this bad. The service was beyond unprofessional and slow. Like a previous reviewer wrote - we sat down and not a bus boy or waiter approached the table for 20 minutes. When the lame waiter finally did show up - no hello, what would you like to drink? Just - do you know what you want? He didn't even look at us. We ordered drinks - which were probably the worst margaritas we have ever had. The food was basic, dry, over cooked, and just plain bad. It is clear the management of this "restaurant" relies only on its location to draw a crowd. I can't imagine anyone ever returning, so that can last only so long. Avoid!"

20 minute drinks. Had to ask twice
for chips and salsa it came when my drink finally arrived and 2 minutes before the appetizers. Whats the point? Chips tasted a little stale. Both tables next to me complained anout their wait. I had a 845 rez and didnt eat anything until 9:15. Tacos were alittle dry and guac was underseasoned on all 3 trio dips. It didnt seem as tho restaurant was prepared for a busy night. Hostess didnt give a warm welcome and criticized the way i made my reservation! Wtf! I should have turned arnd then. Ive been here before and it was a great time, but you were way off the mark that night."

Although our waiter apologized
about the wait for our food and drinks, the restaurant was understaffed."

Bartenders never acknowledged us
after being there for about 5 min. When they finally came the table was ready. It took another 8 min for our server to come -all he did was pour water(run away. When he came back he said "do u know what u want". We were seared & put our order on first but the 6 top got there food first. How does that happen? Food finally arrived it was cold. would have mentioned the food quality to the server but he never came to ask. Horrible service, poor drinks, average food. The service here is deplorable. not be coming again - even with another $25 off coupon. I told my husband business must be bad here to give $25 off coupons.Yes I was right. Horrible service!!' Don't waste your time - McDonalds service is better"

Good food and dining environment.
The service was very slow, took almost 20 minutes to get the checks."
Dined on 7/19/2013
Food is really very good overall.
Lighting is dim/dungeon like, enough so that you can barely read the menu and the noise? Between the crowd and the music it is deafening...these last two factors alone would prevent me from going back unless I just happened to be in the neighborhood or did take out."

the food was very good, but the
service really dragged. Especially since the the restaurant wasn't very busy."
Dined on 7/16/2013
This a great place for a little
more high end mexican food. Its not just rice and bean slapped on a plate with tortillas and your choice of meat like many other places. Their tacos are wonderful and are filled with interesting combinations like brisket and plantains. The braised short ribs are also outstanding if your looking for something not in a tortilla. With that said, I would eat here more often if the service weren't so slow... initially ordering doesn't take long but getting dessert and the check can take forever."
Dined on 7/16/2013
Service was very slow - drink
order taken 15-20 minutes after being seated on a relatively uncrowded night. Tiny portion of salsa for two people (bowl was so small it was difficult to dip the chip), corn chips served in what appeared to be a used lunch bag bottom. Fajitas served with a separately cooked and sliced grilled chicken breast (no flavor) on a bed of sauteed peppers and onions. Margaritas weak and watery. Decor tired and in need of a good cleaning. Trio of guacamole app was tasty - probably the high point of the meal, although the title is misleading as there were two guacamoles and one bean dip."
