Lola's on Harrison
Downtown Hollywood's GemWe eat out in Hollywood almost every Tuesday evening. It's difficult to find a restaurant with good food without driving to Hallandale or Aventura -- and we've tried a most everything East of 95 in the area. We keep coming back to Lola's. The crab cake appetizer and Branzino entree are our favorites. Sometimes we go with another couple -- he loves the ribs -- but it is a hearty meal!6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent meal and serviceThis was our second visit to Lola's and again we were not disappointed. The menu is not expansive, they focus on a select group of foods but everyone was able to find something they enjoyed including pasta, chicken, and beef dishes, one of our party had the cheeseburger and it looked amazing, I will try that next time. There is a great wine list and the wait staff had very good knowledge of all the wines as well as the main courses, good selection of beer as well (try the 400 lb Monkey!). We had the shrimp and grits appetizer as well as the brie, both great choices. My steak was cooked perfectly, very tender and flavorful. We will definitely be back, it's now our favorite place in Hollywood.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food with friendlyVery good food with friendly service. Ribs are great but slighly over priced for the portion you receive. Very fresh ingredients and interesting appetizers. Happy hour is grat offer but the rule that you have to go to the bar is ridiculous as our table was 10 ft from the bar and you can go up and buy lesser priced drinks and take them back to your table.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent and onlyFood was excellent and only surpassed by the service.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMNever a disappointmentThe food is always excellent. One of us is gluten intolerant, and Lola's has always accommodated. Supposedly undera new chef, and the food was excellent!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMHas become one of our favoritesChef will custom your order for your personal needs.
The food is consistently well prepared and creative.
Never had a meal that was not superb.
The staff is friendly and
the waiters aim to please.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLola's New MenuWent a little late (8:30p res.) on Sat. before Mother's Day - seemed pretty quiet and waiter advised of a new chef but with continuation of some popular menu items. Short ribs were continued and 2 in our party of 8 had them and raved! Most others had fish (1 veg. meal appetizers) and every plate was devoured (side of sweet potato fries is worth cheating on your diet).
Service was very attentive - while we were all satisfied we found it unusual that dessert was not even offered. May have been because it was getting a little late (10:30?) but would have liked to see what they had as the items presented at other tables looked good.
Remains on the list of places we will return for dinner as everything was fresh and well prepared.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMNew Chef, still wonderfulWe were a little anxious, as Chef Michael has moved on. But, the crabcakes are still wonderful. The new chef has added a summer twist to the Salmon and Branzino which have been our long-time favorites. He did well. This is stil the best place --- actually only great place-- we've found to dine in downtown Hollywood.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMA Splendid Dining Experience!Our first time at this restaurant and it won't be our last! Courteous and kind personnel from the front door to the wait staff. Notable entrees such as Coca-Cola BBQ Ribs and Veal Oscar were prepared with love that showed. Wow! What a Treat! If you haven't been to Lola's yet---what are you waiting for? Great food, very reasonable prices, a really neat place. Don't miss it!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMoasis in a desertHollywood, Fl isnt is hardly a foodie's destination, but Lola's is a real find. The food at Lola's rivals what you would find in any trendy big-city restaurant. I always eat at Lola's when in the area for business. In fact, it's the kind of place you can go solo and not feel "odd." On my last visit I sampled the salmon over wheatberries. Wow! tastey, ample, and with a lovely presentation. I also love the caramelized brussel sprouts. In fact, everything I've had at Lola's has been delicious. I look forward to coming here whenever I am in the area.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGood, interesting placeThere were 6 of us and everyone enjoyed the food. We were greeted warmly and given a table in a corner as we were having a mini reunion. Definitely would return.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMthis place always throws downthis place always throws down great food. we have been here several times and have left happy each time. service is very good, full liquor bar, nice wine list and great deserts. go here on a date night, or a nice quiet mid week escape. you wont be let down...4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGo. Just go if you're in HollywoodFirst impression - clean modern style, tables amply spaced, attentive staff. The menu - manageable and imaginable. Excellent local craft beer list. The food - well, it's hard for a guy to pass up the ribs, 2 of our 4-guy business party had those, the others the skirt steak and gnocchi respectively. Raves all around. Surprising side - creamed corn - was excellent. We didn't hang out for dessert, but I bet it's and equally creative and well-executed.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMTook a shot based on internetTook a shot based on internet reviews and thrilled with our decision. Great salmon and awesome wheatberry salad, gnocchi with mushrooms and flatiron steak. Service impeccable with just the right amount of friendliness. At 6 pm was very quiet, had to eat early to get to airport. definitley will visit again when in Hollywood.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional food in a casualExceptional food in a casual string.

Did not have high expectations based on our last experience someplace else based on reviews. Boy were we surprised. This place is AMAZING. Love the quaint atmosphere, and the service is spot on.
