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.

    We went to Lola's for their special Thanksgiving menu - the food was AMAZING, the service was very personable and pleasant, we got to meet the chef/owner who thanked US for coming out (we thanked him for giving up his holiday to feed us), and the ambiance was lovely - even with a full house, it was not too noisy for personal conversation. What a wonderful restaurant and I cannot wait to go back!!

    On Turkey Day, I brought some friends to this restaurant, a new fave of mine, for a contemporary version of the traditional meal of gratitude for our blessings. All of us agreed we'd enjoyed and savored the most delicious Thanksgiving meal any of us ever had, including our families' feasts! From soup to nuts, there was not a single bad note --- this culinary symphony was superlative! Michael and his staff rock!

    The food was outstanding, the service was just ok. Took about 15 minutes to take our drink order, and the server did not know the menu, but was pleasant. The drinks were expensive and small, but the food was reasonable for the amount and quality. We would try again.

    We looked forward to a stellar dining experience, but left feeling disappointed. While some will classify Lola's as a fine dining establishment because of its menu and aspirations, the recipes, preparation, and service came up really short. In particular, the bbq beef ribs -- smothered in sloppy sweet sauce -- were a flop. The kitchen clearly does not know how to prepare this dish, which was left unfinished. The caesar salad dressing may as well have been bottled,. The s'mores dessert was barely edible & also left unfinished. The trout was plain jane o.k., but the tuna tartare got top marks along with the coffee. Salted butter for the bread? The place seems to have a loyal following, but we will not return. Overall grade: C

    The quality of food and the preparation was superb. However, I had the short ribs as a main course and they were quite fatty and there was no vegetable. Best to order something else next time. Other dishes were perfect and the service was fantastic. The ambiance is simple and modern.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005

    I have enjoyed many excellent meals at Lola's, and this was no exception. My guests and I all ordered from the Dine Out Lauderdale menu, and the value was excellent. The salmon tartare was fresh-tasting and very flavorful, a shared crab cake was rich and delicious. My CocaCola BBQ ribs entree had excellent flavor (but was not quite as lean as I would have liked) and the Smores dessert was a chocolate overload of goodness. The only critical comment I have - a few of the items were a bit over salted this time around. Overall, another great meal at Lola's.

    Had an excellent meal at Lola's. It was our first time there. We went on our anniversary and found that the restaurant lived up to our expectations. We wanted a somewhat quiet place with lots of ambience, good food and friendly staff. We got all of that. Chef Michael was out making the rounds amongst customers so we got a chance to thank him for the wonderful food and lovely restaurant. There are too few places like this in South Florida so I recommend making friends with Lola's and the chef!!

    The menu was interesting and the food was very good. The menu overall left something to be desired. The service was great and the prices on the high side. Portions were pretty large and could be shared. This restaurant is a treat for couples and a great place to bring a bunch. It doesn't seem to be kid friendly and I hope it stays that way.

    My first visit to this restaurant as part of Dine Out Fort Lauderdale. Items for this menu offered good choice and were wonderfully prepared. Each of three courses provided contrasts in taste and texture, with creative preparations and attractive presentations. Service was outstanding. I will be returning to this gem!

    Very happy we found this restaurant. Fantastic, creative, well prepared food. Very excited about coming back and tasting some of the rest of the menu. Chef captures recognizable comfort food while at the same time preparing it in an innovative way. Excellent service from our delightful and knowledgeable, pregnant server. Sorry, I can't remember her name. Keep up the good work!

    I found Lola's online trying to locate a small, romantic dinner for my self and my husband. We're young and I wanted something special. We got there and we were the only table. All of my requests were met, a secluded table and a customized dessert. The drink selection was amazing and the food..... SPECTACULAR!!!! We enjoyed every second of it. The service, on point. The servers never missed a beat. We were so impressed that we immediately called our other couple friend and let them know about this amazing little spot. Without a doubt, we would be back for more.

    We had a wonderful experience at Lola's. The food and service were excellent and the ambience was lovely. It was a rainy Monday evening so the restaurant was not busy - therefore I cannot judge the noise level when the place is at full capacity. But, I can say that we look forward to returning.

    Lola's is one of my new favorite restaurants. They have one of the best beer selections that any restaurant or bar offers in South Florida, During this last visit we tried the crab cakes and I would say it was probably the best I have ever had.
