Awesome meal as usual! A cleveland Gem!!!
Decided to get away from Columbus for the evening and hit up Lola in Cleveland. Well worth the trip for us. Excellent service. Always there when we needed him and he kept his distance otherwise in between, without forgetting about us. Great relaxed atmosphere. Nothing felt fussy or over done. Food was delicious and well prepared. Great wine list. Cocktails were delicious.
Staff also made sure that guests were wearing masks when not seated as well which was nice!
Everything about Lola's was excellent. I highly recommend the fried brussels sprouts - the best in Cleveland in my opinion.
Drove all the way from chicago to try this place. I was definitely not disappointed. Service was excellent our server kevin was friendly, attentive took his time to explain the menu. The food was delicious, drink were outstanding as well.
Excellent service provide by server Tiffany. Seared scallops excellent. Swordfish tasted a little like grease from the grill. Brussels sprouts were also a bit greasy. Lola fries excellent. Pork belly appetizer was excellent.
Great atmosphere even during the pandemic! Tasty food and amazing service!
Really enjoyed Lola. Very helpful and friendly staff and service. Really good food!
Celebrating my 50th birthday. The ambiance was great. The pork belly appetizer and the beef cheeks were to die for! Seared scallops and their polenta, is a must. We will definitely go again!
The food was excellent, great service, good drink And wine choices. Would definetly recomend and come back again.
The meal was good but I expected more. I will continue to support Symon.
They did a nice job. No rush to get us out either. Appreciated that.
Top ten dining experiences of my life.
Absolutely loved every minute of it! Went there for wedding night date for the first time and it was absolutely perfect! Totally beyond expectations!
Absolutely fantastic. Wonderful food and service
Special occasion place. Tables were very well spaced so we felt relatively safe. Could have used better air circulation though.
Food was good as always. Service was excellent.
We really enjoyed our meal from Lola. We had planned to eat on the patio, but because of a maintenance issue and pending rain, the patio was closed; we opted to do takeout for our meal instead, as we’re not dining indoors yet, and everyone was extremely gracious and accommodating. (They do have very good COVId restrictions in place - distanced tables, everyone in masks, plexiglass surrounding and dividing the bar area into segments... we are just not comfortable eating inside yet.)
The steamed buns were very good, and the apple salad was delicious. The pork was nice but would undoubtedly have been more flavorful hot (not taken home), so we don’t want to review it based on our takeout. The chicken was absolutely delicious - so tender, terrific garnish. We loved the polenta and the smashed potatoes, and the green beans were very fresh.
All in all, the food was delicious, the staff was lovely, and we’d love the opportunity to actually eat on site another time.
We fell in love with the pierogis and French fries. Best ever fries. Pierogis for the very first time and best appetizer ever and we enjoy dining out 2-3 times a week. Top notch service. Hanger steak, smoked pork chop and pierogis have been on the menu since Lola opened and there’s a reason why - all 3 are fabulous! Presentation was first class. Overall a wonderful experience to kick-off our 4-day weekend in Cleveland.
We enjoyed a special birthday dinner here on October 9. In regards to Covid restrictions, we felt very safe with people masked and distances between tables. Our food was absolutely amazing. Looking forward to a return in the future.
This place had the most delicious food I've ever eaten from the appetizers all the way to the complimentary birthday dessert. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a personal experience and absolutely spectacular food.
Very well prepared food with excellent service. Lola is handing the pandemic very well.
Lola was everything we expected. My wife and children are big fans of Chef Symon, and this was her choice. We made the trek from Cincinnati for this experience and it was worth it!
Very nice. Food and service was great! This was a dinner to celebrate my boyfriend’s 50th. I did add a comment about it being his birthday and they surprised us with a cupcake and plate with happy birthday written in raspberry.. very cute.
We ate out on the patio, and it was a very enjoyable evening! We had the pork chop and the scallops, smashed potatoes and brussels. Everything was amazing!
Just too pricey.
Wonderful meal and great food
Excellent menu, excellent service, excellent wine list. COVID restrictions on point. We loved it.
The food was amazing we got the pork belly, scallops ribeye and coconut cake everything was just awesome!!!!
Had a very nice meal on the patio with a friend from FL. Weather was perfect!
Went up to celebrate my boyfriends “40”th Birthday. The waiter was very attentive and the food was amazing! They even brought a nice cupcake with a candle that said happy birthday! Very good memorable experience! Cant wait to come back!
We were social distanced. Waiter was very attentive and friendly, food was very good and plated attractively. We had a relaxed, enjoyable evening.
Our meal was AMAZING! Every bite was wonderful! We have not experienced such palatable wonders like this in some time. The service was great, our food was served almost immediately after ordering.
5 Star all the way.
Attentive service. Perfect romantic ambiance. Masterful cuisine.
First time at a restaurant in more than six months due to pandemic. Decided to celebrate the evening of our 50th Wedding Anniversary at Lola. The experience was perfect from the service to the food, and the beautiful dessert tribute at the end of the meal. We go to Lola because we trust that we will always have a perfect experience, and are never disappointed.
Such a great experience at Lola. Service was top notch. Our meals were delicious. My boyfriend got the hangar steak and I got the scallops. We had no room for dessert so we got Michaels Favorite Cake to go. Don’t let the coconut scare you. This might have been one of the best cakes I have ever had. Best restaurant in Cleveland.
Food was great! Best restaurant I’ve been to in Cleveland this far
Beautiful quaint restaurant. The Inside dining option is perfect for a romantic dinner by candlelight. Waitress was extremely knowledgeable Of menu and Very thoughtful. Food was terrific. Pork chops, rosemary fries, beef cheek Perogies and the chocolate dessert were our favorites.
This is a pricey restaurant but worth every penny we spent!
The food is AMAZING! Our service was so amazing too!
We were absolutely thrilled to come to Cleveland and find that this Michael Symon restaurant was open. They were set up from the start to make you feel safe and comfortable. The food was perfect! Pork Belly Appetizers and Pork Chops & Swordfish for the main course. Brandon was an outstanding server with excellent wine pairing recommendations! This was an absolute treat!
We had great service and food.
Kind of miss the chitter chatter but that’s a sign of the times
Wait staff was very attentive. Manager was hands on and personable with all tables. Kitchen is open, enjoyed watching how well organized Derek and staff were. Dishes were well executed, flavorful and entrees were large portions. We definitely would recommend for date night, family gatherings or friends meeting for appetizers and drinks.
