A word from Lola's on Harrison
Opened in 2007, it remains a bastion of contemporary, American, upscale comfort food. Recently, the restaurant was taken over by Chef Bob Mignola, whose resume includes Smith & Wollensky in Miami Beach and The Post House in Manhattan. Mignola has worked with renowned Chef's David Burke, Bobby Flay & Michelle Bernstein. Mignola is breathing new life into this already outstanding dining establishment.

From the extraordinary boutique wine list, the seemingly endless selection of craft beers, an imaginative and alluring cocktail menu, to the offerings of artfully prepared cuisine, no step has been missed in selecting and preparing the finest and freshest of ingredients. Mignola will be showing off his culinary talents by introducing specials to compliment Lola's favorite selections such as the Coca Cola® Short Ribs and the Crab Cakes, which remain on the menu.

    Its a shame the service was so indifferent. Food order was taken, delivered to table, and then we were totally ignored through the entire meal. Two plates were cleared while diner was still eating and dessert menus were "tossed' on the table while diner was still eating entree. The restauarnt was not busy and no one seemed to be the slightest bit interested in their patrons. I feel sorry for the owner (or maybe I shouldn't).. It is really tough to make it in the restaurant biz, and when you have such poor service, you end up committing economic suicide. I just dont get it. BTW...the food was quite good and nicely presented.

    The food was a delight and full of flavor. Exceeded my expectations so much I'm still thinking about it. The service fell short and did not match the high standards of the food. We felt rushed and the server wasn't hospitable. Despite this I would definitely go back.

    We had an excellent time and our food was excellent. Service was a bit inconsistent at the beginning but improved as the meal progressed. As Senior Restaurant Manager for The Carlyle in New York I am a bit critical of service, food presentation and overall guest experience. I was very satisfied with the overall experience and will recommend the venue. Food is excellent, wine selection is great and the ambiance is perfect. Highly recommend when in the Hollywood area.

    My husband and I eat here weekly. The filet is always melt in your mouth amazing! My only "problem" is that the one male waiter always seems like he'd rather be anywhere else. He's not rude, he's just not warm and friendly.

    I took my fiance to this restaurant primarily because of the rave reviews I read about the Coca Cola ribs. They definitely lived up to the hype. Presentation, flavor, tenderness, everything was excellent. People were even stopping at our table on the way out to ask what I ordered. The restaurant is nice and clean. It is fairly small, which should be nice for intimate dining, but it was much louder than expected. It seems like sound carries easily because the table at the opposite corner of the restaurant sounds like they were sitting right beside us. My date ordered a fish meal with ratatouille that was also delicious. Our 2 meals with a glass of wine each came up to around 78 plus gratuity. I would return if I was in the area

    Parking in rear, staff was great. Service was wonderful. Went with a travelzoo, so prices reasonable for our groups budget. Celebrated my friends birthday. We got a goat cheese salad-delicious. Tuna tartar app-delicious! Filet mignon was perfectly cooked and soft. Loved the budget friendly red wine blend. We were the last 2 tables to leave and did feel like we were giving some glances by the wait staff to leave but it was late. Would definitely recommend!

    Nice restaurant - Excellent Food! Get the impression that you should reserve ahead if you plan to dine at this restaurant during winter season. Unique menu with a great variety of so many delicious dishes that you don't know what to choose. Angry shrimp, pork chop, chicken Milanese, and home-made gnocci w/ricotta were really outstanding. Wonderful grilled vegetable side dishes as well. Anything prepared by this chef will be gourmet & great. We are true foodies and were so happy to have discovered this restaurant -- Enjoy!

    Lola's on Harrison is one of those few unique restaurants with a nice and special twist on its menu. There certainly are some items listed that you will find elsewhere but, overall, the selections are at least a little different than those of other restaurants. Be sure to try the CocaCola Short Ribs (topped by gigantic onion rings) for a succulent and aromatic dish. An interesting cocktail menu and wine list round out the experience. Well done!

    Hollywood is always a great place to have dinner with our Miami friends as we live in Fort Lauderdale . The service was good and everyone enjoyed their meals. The portion were generous and the price was fair as well. Great list of microbrewery beers for the beer drinkers. Don't look for Bud-Light at Lola's. I am amazed more people don't take advantage of the many restaurants in downtown Hollywood.

    We eat at Lola's every couple of months and it is consistently very good. The salmon tartar appetizer is very tasty; terrific ceaser salad and I had the veal porterhouse while wife shared lam chops with her girlfriend. My friend had the branding and everyone was very happy with the food quality. Crem bulee was perfect. Decent wine selection . Only criticism was too much garlic on the spinach. Highly recommend for dates.

    Everything on the menu is delicious! The filet is always tender and my husband loves the chicken and the BBQ ribs. You can also substitute the shoestring fries for Parmesan potatoes au gratin. It's not really suitable for kids, since it's mostly adults out for a romantic dinner or drinks and socialising. The service can be a little slow, but it's not bad.

    The food was so great, the staff so friendly and helpful, that after our first time to Lola's, we decided to go back to eat again the next evening. The ribs were as promised, tasty and tender. The clams were served in a marinara that was on the re-order for the next evening. Fish tacos were the best I've ever eaten and although I normally don't take food home, I was not leaving without the leftovers. What a gem of a dining restaurant. It deserves a must stop for anyone looking for great food.

    Our party of four were down for a convention. Luckily I have family who live in Ft. Lauderdale and they were able to recommend this restaurant. Though they are very near the train tracks and parking is poor, the food and service were top notch. From appetizers to entree's, to drinks to desserts everyone enjoyed their food. The service was attentive without being cloying, and the atmosphere is what you expect for a Florida establishment. Pleasant, but lacking a professional touch.

Great Location! Filled with Locals Food was outstanding. Menu had great variety, ribs and fish special were both prepared to perfection. Wine list was thoughtful. Pork Belly tacos, Crab Cakes and Shrimp apps were amazing too. Would go back. Would recommend for young adults and over, our 10 year old was the only child in the dining area.
