The food was amazing. The mushroom taco app is a must have. The coke BBQ ribs are their "known for" dish and are awesome. Service was outstanding and the ambience was perfect for our Friday night date night. We will go back!

Had a birthday dinner for
Had a birthday dinner for my girlfriend and two guests. The food was exceptionally good, the service was terrific and the price was fair. We will probably return in the future, as it was an enjoyable experience.

Perfect all around!
We had such a fabulous meal! The stand outs were the goat cheese salad, mushroom tacos, Coca Cola ribs, and the gnocchi in a creamy mushroom sauce. My husband enjoyed his trout, but said he would order something different next time. The service was really attentive and the servers were so friendly and kind.

Fantastic hidden gem
Really good food from a diverse menu. Service was fast. Felt a bit cramped.

We have tried most everything
We have tried most everything in downtown Hollywood, and Lola's remains our favorite. We especially enjoy the branzino -- I was put off by the idea of fennel, but the chef has combined them with flavors saffron rice and sauce that makes a wonderful dish.

It was outstanding as usual.
It was outstanding as usual. Small restaurant, only has at most 10 tables but it is quiet, the service and food outstanding.

Worthy of return!!
Excellant food and Service. Great for special Occasion too!!
Veal Chop Outstanding!!

Noisy but Nice
A group of five of us went on a Saturday night at 8 pm to celebrate a birthday. The food was outstanding, from appetizers to entrees. The mussels in a sweet tomato broth are not to be missed, as are the seafood dishes and ribs. Of note, the rainbow trout was the best I have had since leaving the midwest, and the Coca Cola ribs were big and meaty. A nearby nightclub had an outdoor band with the music so loud that it was difficult to hear the people at our table talk.

Server excellent we are regulars food disappinting for the first time

Lola's is back with new owners
Lola's has retained some of their old menu items and added new ones. Especially good was the pistachio encrusted goat cheese salad with red and yellow beets. The only weak point is the desserts, which are composed items, nothing is baked. They would be better off serving ice cream and sorbets.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
I've been their several times & we enjoyed the whole experience. Food is fantastic. Best in Hollywood
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
We dine out most weeks, and this is our favorite place in downtown Hollywood. They just added an excellent Grouper to the menu -- in addition to the excellent Branino and crab cakes.

Trying out Lola's on Harrison
I visited Lola's with my boyfriend on a special occasion. I found the food at Lola's to be moderately priced, but surprisingly satisfactory after hearing raving reviews (don't get me wrong, the Branzino was delicious, but the rice was under seasoned). Together, we tasted the angry shrimp (the grits were good- although I had not tried the shrimp itself), the salad with beets (excuse me for forgetting the name of the actual dish), the Coke BBQ main entree, the Branzino, the key lime pie and the vanilla creme brûlée. I don't recommend getting the creme brûlée if you want to dig in deep for your dessert; the dish overall was lacking in substance. Service was spectacular and extremely accommodating. Good experience overall.
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing service, delicious food
This place is awesome. Host and servers refer to you by name. We got there early and had wine at the bar. Great happy hour prices on nice wines. Brie, fig jam, almonds, and honey appetizer was great. We were celebrating our anniversary and the host gave us a cozy corner half booth by the window. Salmon over spinach and garlic with fried leeks was perfectly prepared and succulent. Burger was one of the best I've had. Mushrooms, cheese, ripe tomato, crispy brussel sprouts, cooked exactly as I ordered it. Free key lime pie to celebrate our anniversary. This place is a gem.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Have been there several times; the food is excellent. The last time there the busboy was a little to anxious to take away our plates before we had all finished the course. It made us feel rushed and there were plenty of other tables. He was pleasant enough, just seemed to be new on the job. The noise level is pretty high....once when we dined there was a pretty loud party of six and it ruined the experience (and we weren't even sitting next to them); it's not the restaurants fault but it was pretty annoying. Also, I was disappointed in the chocolate dessert.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
We used a travelzoo voucher for our dinner at Lola's. The deal made our delicious dinner very reasonably priced. Our waiter was very gracious, the décor was appealing and the food was GREAT. It is a very nice restaurant,-- that serves up interesting nouveau cuisine. It is definitely worth a visit to try their food.

The coca cola BBQ beef ribs
Are a must...best rib dish in south Florida, and the onion rings are great. Only flaw: more creamed corn please.
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
We haven't been to Lola's in over a year; but for my money, it's still the best restaurant in Hollywood. The menu is creative and the food excellent and fairly priced. The configuration of the restaurant has changed. It's more spacious, the tables are not crowded, and the overall ambiance is clean, modern, and very pleasant.. The service was attentive and energetic but not overbearing. We had a great experience, and will certainly go back more often,
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
The table was available quickly, and the food and service were great!
I'll be back for certain.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our 4th or 5th time
This was our 4th or 5th time here and I can easily say that it's consistently excellent in terms of food and service. One of our favorites!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a great time
This place has a delicious menu, the staff is very attentive and pleasant. The restaurant always has a nice balance of conversation and a romantic ambiance. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone, give it a try and you will find yourself coming back.
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
The dim lighting set the mood for a romantic evening. The food was phenominal and the service was fantastic. Our waitor was very prompt with the order and was always very attentive. It was also very clean. I would definately recommend this restaurant and will take my family there when they come to visit.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellence in all facets!
Lola's on Harrison proved to be a top notch restaurant in all facets. The food was delicious, we especially enjoyed the mussels appetizer and the Coca-Cola shortribs. While we did not enjoy wine with dinner on this occasion, the wine list was quite impressive. And the service was superb, and they even provided us with a free desert to top off our stay. I will recommend Lola's highly, both to my neighbors in Hollywood and to friends looking for a new and delicious dining experience.
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Oh La, La,-- Lola's
Lola's is an excellent restaurant with interesting, creative and delicious choices. We were graciously greeted by their manager. Our server was accommodating and attentive. I had their "Angry Shrimp with grits" appetizer. It was fabulous. My companion had their Wedge salad,--which he loved. He had their Chicken Milanese as his entrée,-- and I had their signature Beef Ribs. Both dishes were EXCELLENT. Their DECADENT and delicious chocolate lava/fudge cake,-- was a fitting ending,-- to a very satisfying and enjoyable dinner. Whatever Lola cooks,-- I want to eat!! Lola's is an outstanding restaurant with FAIR prices for QUALITY cuisine and service.
9/26/2013 5:00:00 PM
I had the pleasure to dine at Lola's with a friend of mine and had a wonderful time. The food was excellent. We started out with an apetizer which was the warm Brie and had a glass of Riesling wine. It was out of this world. Then I had the coca cola ribs and the presentation was unbelievable and so delicious. They could of put a little more cream corn on the plate. The only thing I did not like was the desert. I had the chocolate cake which was a big disappointment and the coffee was too strong. Otherwise the service and food are well worthwhile and I recommend this place highly to dine.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Coca Cola Ribs a Must
Nothing beats the Coca Cola ribs with some sweet potato fries ... always delicious!!!
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
A Daimond in Hollywood
We have dined at LOLA'S many times, this time was exceptional. Maybe it was the server, but everything was at the top of it's game. We ordered a bottle of wine instead of having coctails at the bar.
WE stated with the blue cheese special and a salad. The cheese was as good as it gets. The salad with roasted beets and goat cheese was a great complement to the cheese special. I had the black grouper, with the red tai sauce, and sticky rice. My husband enjoyed the veal porterhouse chop marsala with portabella mushrooms.
We completed our meal with the OVER THE TOP KEY LIME PIE. Finger licking good. Lola's never disappoints. We will be back again very soon.
10/3/2013 5:00:00 PM
food was excellent. Service was Ok. I had ask for more drinks.
10/4/2013 5:00:00 PM
Limited menu w no substitutions.
Four of us went for dinner & when asked if they could have no rice sub for veggies she was told that they don't do that. We enjoyed everything we ordered, mussels, warm goat cheese salad, Coke BBQ ribs that fall off the bone, the side creamed corn was skimpy but tasty. The grouper was also very good. Key lime pie was creamy & tart.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Consistently good food
3rd time visit, Great Food, good variety, great service
10/11/2013 5:00:00 PM
Gentle changes to the menu....
We like Lola's, having found it the best fine dining on the East side of Hollywood. We'd not visited in several weeks due to my travel schedule, and we were pleased to find simple and delicious variations on our favorites. When I say variations, I mean for example, a chance from saffron to forbidden rice and different veggies accompanying the Branzino (which is wonderful). Lola's continues to be our favorite place to eat in this neighborhood.
10/14/2013 5:00:00 PM
A party of eight - for a birthday party (my mom is 106!) - set beautifully in the smaller back room.
Attractive setting - Accommodating staff - Attentive service. The food was good - the service was excellent!
In the end, the chef 'comped' my mom's dinner. What a nice surprise.
Good place - Great people.

Lola's is a strong Hollywood option
Lola's is a strong Hollywood option for creatively prepared cuisine. The Black Grouper I ordered was outstanding. Service was professional and attentive. I will return.
10/21/2013 5:00:00 PM
We saw this restaurant on the food channel and decided to try with some friends. It was a great experience from the
welcoming before we stepped in to our departure. Everyone was very gracious and polite especially our server
Cassandra. The warm brie appetizer was very good as well as the French onion soup. We were very satisfied
with our dinner and dessert, will definitely be coming back.
10/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
Mom and I had a wonderful dinner. Clams and portabello tacos for apys - fabulous! Branzino was cooked to perfection. Service was terrific, very accommodating and knowledgeable. Have already recommended to her friends in the local area.
10/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
We keep returning......
We love the food and the gentle changes that the chef makes to the excellent entrees that we've come to know over the years. The serving staff are attentive without being intrusive. We find it a good place for an intimate couples conversation, but Lola's is also a good place to bring business associates for good food in an atmosphere that's attractive without being pretentious.
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Downtown Hollywood Gem
We dine out in downtown Hollywood frequently, and every time we try a new place, we find ourselves saying "why didn't we just return to Lola's? We enjoy the fresh fish entrees, and prompt and attentive service
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
It was supposed to dinner
It was supposed to dinner but turned into a very pleasant early bird barbites and wine at the bar. Nice wine good appitizers in a very quiet elegant atmosphere. We had seen the place get great reviewsin the papers and on "Check Please" but since we didn't sample the dinner entrees we can only recommend the bar. Regulars sitting near us were mourning the departure of the long time chef but they were coming back so I will to on another night when I'm hungry enough for a real dinner.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very good food
We enjoyed this restaurants!! The service was very good, the food was so tasty and the Desserts were amazing!!
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great find in Hollywood
We really enjoyed the crab cake and grouper. In downtown Hollywood, it's great for our evenings out.
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
GREAT Martinis, my sister in from NY, and I think it is the best one that we have ever had. WE LOVE GREAT MARTINIS. WE have made martini sampling have made it into an art form.
We both had ribs she had the beef, I the pork. Fantastic.
We love Lola's and will continue to patronize it.
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Hollywood night life
The hours are a little weird but, it's a nice place to dine. The lighting could be a little brighter as well. Another minor complaint was that we had a "private" party and we were placed in the middle of the front entry way. Food is always good although we had a couple of minor mishaps. The price could be a tad better as well. As side from that, I enjoy eating and having our staff events yearly there.
12/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
I do love Lola's. Always tell visiting friends it is a good choice. This last time went with picky European couple . Our problem was that there was a noisy holiday group in the room playing "Family Feud" The food and service were very good as usual and my friends approval was high, but the noise did detract.wouldn't stop me from going back.The veal chop is a winner.
12/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Solid menus performance
Lola's executed all aspects of the menus very well. Would go back. Crab cakes and shrimp appetiser very good. A very zesty and fresh blue cheese dressing.
12/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great for dinner
With a holiday party going on, Lola's was louder than usual, but the food was the same great cuisine that we've come to rely on; and the servers were as attentive as ever. This is hands-down the best food we've found in East Hollywood. We love the crabcake, and the grouper, salmon and branzino entrees are all wonderful.
