great find but drinks are priceyWe went to Lolos for a Saturday lunch. It was surprisingly empty inside (most customers were sitting outside) and accommodated our wheelchair-bound mom. The ambience is charming. The food was refreshing (the tropical tacos and tuna tacos were great, and the service was great. The tacos are really appetizers so we split a larger chicken sandwich as well. The special nonalcoholic watermelon mint drinks were great but (unbeknownst to us) cost $5 each and we kept reordering because the water was terrible. The meal cost us about $130 for 4 people, quite an expensive lunch for no alcohol and no dessert.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGood to keep in mind.First of all, this is a Mexican fusion tapas place. The food is good, the presentation is better and the service is excellent. with yhat said their platillos are original and they look great. Food is really tasty, their menu is not that extensive, so it is a easy pick. I would say to skip the menu and go for the special, you can't go wrong. The cocktails are great and somewhat creative and sophisticated. Top tip! This place is great for first dates.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMlove it all!i love everything about this place. have been here and several times -sometimes reordering favorites, sometimes new items or specials- never had a single dish i didn't like it. the more people, the more fun so there is more to taste. reasonable prices for a great time!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMyummie, as always.We started going here right after they opened and have never had a bad meal or dish. Now with their popularity, it's more of an occasion place (since reservations are a must).
Lolo never disapoints! I would give 10 stars if I could.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved loved loved Lolo. CuteLoved loved loved Lolo. Cute decor without being cutesy. Perfect place to sit outdoors. Reasonable prices for outstanding small plates to share.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMUnique, hard to describe gem.Is it Mexican? Not really, sort of Is it Spanish? Not really, sort of... It's impossible to describe, except that it's awesome. One dish after another surprises and delights. There is nothing like Lolo. And to top it off, they have a full bar with unique and tasty cocktails. Lolo is doing it right, whatever it is that they're doing.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Restaurant All AroundGreat Restaurant All Around. Very creative food that I have not seen or tasted anywhere else. It is hard to create something new that is consistently good, but that is the case with Lolo. In the very vibrant part of Mission, so with outdoor seating, it is quite a nice experience. Go eat and have fun.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMLolo always delivers. A frequentLolo always delivers. A frequent visitor, I am consistently impressed with the quality of the food. So glad they have a full liquor license and can offer variety of amazing cocktails. Yum.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMI've taken two sets of out-of-townI've taken two sets of out-of-town visitors to Lolo and both of them declared it their favorite restaurant experience in SF and asked to go back the next next time they were in town. The food is fantastic- a very creative take on Mexican like nothing I've ever had before. The staff is friendly and warm (and cute! Can I say that?), the wine was great, the environment is big fun, the music made me want to push back my chair and dance. I love Lolo. (Can you tell?)4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time - great timeMy wife and I had a great time. All dishes were consistently very good. I enjoyed the tuna tacos and gambas bravas. Caesar's salad was also tasty, a little heavy on the dressing. Short rib and pork shoulder were very nice and I would also recommend the crème brule.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMMy friends and I had a wonderfulMy friends and I had a wonderful meal at Lolo. We ordered all small plates and wished we would have had room for more. The best Brussel sprouts ever and the Beets with goat cheese and carmelized onions were amazing. Also the Lamb sliders were stood out. Everything was wonderful and I would definitely come back. As the place is small it is advisable to make reservations a couple weeks in advance especially if you want to go on a weekend.
