It is the philosophy of BarLola, where one can simultaneously drink, enjoy Spanish music, mingle, and eat ones way round a wonderful gastronomic spectrum. It is our goal to make sure that we only serve authentic dishes that are as close to the original presentation and taste as those you would find in different regions of Spain. We have a fantastic selection of wines, cavas, beers, and other signature cocktails to accompany your meal. We make every effort to ensure that the majority of our key ingredients are imported from Spain. Our kitchen team members come from Spain, descendants of Spain or of Latin ancestry to ensure authenticity and standards. ***NOTE: Every Sunday evening we have live Flamenco shows Sunday Night at 8pm. Please note that there is a $20 minimum per person (toward food and drink) for the show. It will be assumed that all reservations made 7pm and 8pm are for the show. If you will not be joining us for the show, please let us know*

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.

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!

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!

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.
