    We love Lola! We've been many times and completely enjoy the food. The waitstaff is always friendly and helpful. The biggest problem is making a selection since there are so many favorites on the menu and new things we want to try. We tried the Saganaki this time (fried kefalograviera cheese) and were delighted! We'll return again and again.

    My wife and I were disappointed overall with the experience. The food was ok but hardly anything special, especially for the price. The portions were quite small for the price and not as flavorful as expected. We ordered the cobbler for desert and it wasn't really a cobbler and, again, very small, and, $9. Hardly enough for one person let alone sharing one, as we did. This is NOT a restaurant I would think of going back to. I expected much more from a Tom Douglas restaurant. We had heard so much about his restaurants in the news and elsewhere and wanted to experience this for the first time on our anniversary. Unfortunately, we were quite disappointed.

    Breakfast at Lola is a treat; everything is carefully prepared and presented, down to the garlic smashed hash browns. The menu includes a range of dishes from upgraded diner fare through foodie concoctions and Tom's Big Breakfast, featuring octopus as only Tom Douglas could pull it off. Skip the hotel buffet and head to Lola. And don't forget the bag of donuts -- they're worth the trip alone.

    La-la-la-la Lola's! The Tom's big breakfast is out of this world fabulous! About 3 weeks ago our 'foodie' friends took us to Lola's when I had my first 'Tom's' 'fix. (From the Menu), Mediterranean octopus, sugar snap peas, spring onion, potatoes, bacon, green garlic yogurt, poached egg, toast. It's everything you never knew you wanted for breakfast. Service was great, reservations recommended.

    Four of us dined. Ordered 3 small plates and an entree, as advised by the knowledgable server. $ 19.00 sampler, with 2 oysters,some veggies, and two dipping sauces and one piece of grilled bread? Really? Octopus rubbery but flavorful. Entree of Lamb was fabulous, and I would return for in a heartbeat! 2 deserts, good, and a bottle of wine. $ 236.00. Really, Tom, I'm a fan, but you can do better.

    Lola is my family's favorite spot for special occasion meals. We are all able to find plenty to enjoy, which is sometimes a feat as we are gluten-free and have a vegetarian among us. The vegetable dishes, salads, and kebabs are especially fresh and delicious, never overdone and always incorporate flavorful herbs. We keep meaning to try other Tom Douglas restaurants, but are drawn back to Lola. The service and atmosphere are great too! Also, the staff seems very knowledgeable and willing to accommodate gluten-free needs, which we appreciate very much.

    Lola does not disappoint in terms of food or service. If you're sitting at the bar, though, not quite the same--we did both on two different occasions during a recent trip to Seattle. We had questionable service AND my huzbin ordered a cocktail which the menu said was made with Cointreau and we watched the bartender make it with DuKuyper triple sec. Not a horrible infringement, but not what was advertised, expected, or paid for.

    Every meal here is so much fun, as we go through the courses. Each visit adds or subtracts something in the kebab offerings. The side dishes are usually solid and remarkable, though the chef likes a little too much lemon for our liking. Fish andlamb are excellent mains, though the fish portion is too small and very pricey. I would expect it to be at least the size of a salmon steak I would make at home for each person. Dessert is always fabulous,among the choices. Dessert is the always fabulou coconut cream pie!

    We missed brunch by 5 minutes. So as missed breakfast. First time we had lunch at Lola. We won't again. It's overpriced for what you get. Wasn't all that tasty either. Is $15 hr already bitting us in the butt? Better off across the street at Dahliha. Lola would be better off closed v serve tiny kebobs and a meek tasteless salad.

    This is a wonderful place for breakfast and brunch. This place is hopping! People know about it and keep coming back. The atmosphere is pleasant and clean that really makes you feel comfortable to just eat and have a delicious meal. Speaking of meal, the food is really well prepared. I ordered the egg Benedict and a pancake with donuts. The egg on the Benedict was perfectly cooked; not too runny and not overcooked. The pancake was THE BEST PANCAKE I'VE EVER HAD! Hands down. Wow what a perfect batter. And the donuts, oh man the donuts. Geez! I think that a slice of heaven was served in the form of home style small donuts. Our server was attentive to our needs and my coffee was always filled even though there is a small jug at the table.

    We returned to Lola's again this trip and weren't disappointed! Lunch started with two of their spreads on pita, the cauliflower anchovy and the black olive fig. Both were excellent, but you really have to like anchovies to like the first dip! Then we shared the lamb souvlaki with a Greek salad and they were both some of the tastiest foods we had on this trip. Sometimes food lacks "flavour" but that wasn't the case at Lola's! Finally we shared the coconut cream pie. It was very tasty with three kinds of coconut. We have to admit though, the fresh donuts are still the favorite!

By the end of the meal we were all sampling from each others fabulous meals - it was a true brunch.
