Hosts were rude and did not greet us, waitress was very quick and dismissive and not friendly (it was not busy in the restaurant either). Food (garlic shrimp especially) was subpar for tapas. I expected better and was disappointed. Will be going to other tapas places from now on.
the seats we had were perfect for talking. sangria was great. it is a good date spot. one of my favs
I love the music, food, decoration and romantic Spanish ambiance!
I've only ever eaten on the patio and BarLola, and if you get a table there, you're in for a real treat. You feel far away from the hub bub of Comm. Ave. The food is quite good - a mixture of Spanish and American tapas. I recommend the mushroom ravioli, even though it's not an authentic Spanish dish. The red sangria is also good.
Spent the day in Back Bay with a most lovely woman. Wanted to do something different for dinner, tapas was the idea and a very good one. We shared three tapas plates, all quite tasty and of good size. Attentive service, we ate on the early side so a small crowd, not too much noise. By the time we left, the crowds started to arrive, still a nice scene! Will be back, with a bigger appetite next time!
Nice service, extremely noisy to the point where I couldnt hear my husband
There was a vibrant bar scene when we came in for our dinner reservations but our waitress seated us in the adjoining room, which had a cozy and romantic feel to it. My boyfriend and I ordered a host of tapas to share including the empanadas, duck and paella which were our three favorites. We would definitely come back on our next visit to Boston
This is one of the authentic Spanish Tapa restaurants in Boston. Having lived in Spain for 8 years, I can say the food is truly Spanish. All of the tapas are tasty and we'll described on the menu. The only item I had an issue with was the size of the Paella. It would be great if they had it as a non-tapa sized dish. Rather, a full sized paella would be great! However, the dish, while tapa size, was great! Our server was awesome and worked hard to get our orders and drinks to us!
Everything was lovely, and the food was excellent.
Hostess was no where to be found for first 5 mins or so. But after that initial bit of slowness, service turned out to be good. Lamb chops were amazing. BarLola's house red sangria went very well with the food.
