    The food was, in a word, awful. The expensive guacamole was from a package, the tacos were doused is so much sauce it was really bad. You'd think if you ordered a side dish called charred corn you'd get charred corn but you get a piece of boiled corn on the cob doused in some sort of sauce and them cheese in top. They serve edamame at a Mexican restaurant, what? Didn't even have the ability to make a michaleda, a common drink served at Mexican restaurants. It was just bad bad bad.

    Looking forward to eating here since it opened. Our wait person was friendly & always smiling. Complimentary chips w/dipping sauce.. chewy, not crunchy. Dipping sauce couldn't save it. Chimichanga bland, the flavors didn't blend. Looked like a frozen food entrée that was thrown into hot oil & squirted w/some unknown sauce. Salad wilted, beans & corn in it looked like they came from a can. Only good thing was the seltzer waters w/lemon slices. Went on a dinner date here expecting to have a wonderful gastronomical experience. Instead we left feeling ripped off for the amount of money that we paid for cafeteria food. Usually we have dessert but couldn't wait to leave. We'd be ashamed to bring friends/family here.

    Looked pretty from the outside but the food just okay and service similar. I would suggest going to the bar but not sitting. We were first seated in between two families for some reason (as a couple) even though there was plenty of room in the main area, but they switched when I said something. I'm sure better Mexican elsewhere.

    We had been to Lola multiple times since it opened as we were desperate for good mexican food in Westchester. It used to serve nice food in a great ambience. On our last visit, it was felt that something had changed (ownership? Cook?) Either way, the place felt almost sad and the food was mediocare. The service, which was just ok before, still is. Sadly, We made a collective decision to avoid this place.

    I've visited Lola's before and wasn't blown away or turned off, so I decided to give it a second try for Cinco de Mayo with some friends. Two of us came from work (WP Hosp) and waited a few minutes for our 7:45 reservation. We were told it would be about a 10 minute wait. That was fine, but 10 minutes turned into an hour! I understand it was busy, but an hour wait was ridiculous. Finally a manager came over and offered us drinks while we continued to wait. We didn't get our drinks until we asked for them 2 times at the table. We also asked for more chips, never got them. We were given the bill and told that the kitchen was closed.... No warning this was happeneing and it was only 9:45, and we really wanted dessert. Probably will not return.

    Service was also courteous and efficient. We were warmly greeted as we entered. Table were not too close. My friend and I both enjoyed our dishes of stuffed poblano and shrimp with rice which had a nice aioli sauce (but not too much). Food presentation was excellent, very appetizing. Very good wine from Rioja. unfortunately the noise level was quite high as the restaurant filled up. However, we will definitely return.

    Went here for dinner and a friend's birthday party on a Saturday night. I had the Tortilla Soup and Mahi Mahi Veracruzana -- both of which were delicious and light. My wife had the Beef Brisket and Chicken Tacos, which were also very good. The ambience is very sleek, somewhat reminiscent of a steakhouse with hardwood floor, flatscreen TVs and B&W portraits all over the restaurant. I definitely plan to return.

    This place tried to atone for their complete lack of class with wildly loud "music" and club-style lighting. I would have preferred it had they redirected those energies towards providing food of approaching better-than-marginal quality and/or service that was less wanting.

    Myself and my wife had a pleasant dinner at Lola's. We were seated upon arrival (even though we were a bit early for our reservation) and were presented the specials that were available. Our waiter was attentive but not overbearing. We had the tortilla soup and the fried calamari, both of which were well prepared. The soup had a strong flavor of hominy which was enjoyable. The portion size of the calamari was a bit large for one person. I had the Mexican paella and my wife had the roasted chicken breast. Both dishes were nicely presented and well portioned and tasty! While the menu includes the more typical entrees of burritos, enchiladas, etc. it was the house specialties which held the most promise and which differentiated Lola's.
