Incredible food, atmosphere and service
As a foodie my expectations are high and all were met or exceeded! Definitely will go back!
Great time at Lola's, will go back soon! Great staff, great food, just great all around.
Great place!!! Amazing food!!!
Great food, great service, great wine. 10 on the great scale!
Very nice restaurant, in downtown Cleveland. Great views of the kitchen. It is a bit noisy and dark. They have a very good wine list, but if you are a bourbon fan try Mabel's the sister restaurant next door. We had the Beef Cheek Pierogi. smoked duck breast, beef hanger steak and Braised Lamb Shank. All the dishes were good, but not wow! can't wait to come back.
Wonderful very tasty food. Love the vibe, location and service.
One of the best meals I have ever had! Highly recommend this dining experience.
Lola’s is amazing!! The staff is so attentive!! My son has celiac so is gluten free and the staff were so accommodating !! The food is by far the best and such creative starters!!
Would highly recommend Lola’s!!
Great night showing our friends from Charlotte how wonderful Cleveland dining can be.
We love the bartender Dave.
I thoroughly enjoyed my dinner at Lola. I was greeted and seated promptly, had excellent and attentive waitstaff treatment and a great meal. Decided on meat for appetizer (calf heart) and fish for entree (sea bass) both were well prepared and served promptly, Calve heart was done perfectly, hearts have to be rare to medium rare in my opinion and fish was moist. Both dishes included supporting items that were complementary to the mains item. I ordered Brussels sprouts with the main, wow, walnuts and capers, nice mixture. I had the figgy pudding for dessert. Another nice mixture of sweet treats for a finale.
Since I was eating alone, I was particularly pleased and surprised with the multiple options available on the wine list and the spread of values. I enjoyed a Pauillac for my appetizer and a French Burgundy for my main. Both "old friends" that I was delighted to enjoy.
I have enjoyed Michael Symon's appearances on the many Food Channel shows he has appeared on and found him a great Iron Chef. He has a simple approach to basic food with out a lot of effort that goes unappreciated with many chefs in todays world. The restaurant management and executive chef do a great job of carrying out his excellent chef skills....
Our server Brian was amazing. My son and I were there celebrating and he made it so special. We will never forget our experience at Lola! Can’t wait to go back.
Entrees were really good. Would have liked to have seen a more diverse dessert menu. Nothing really different so we passed on getting any. Would have just put the finishing touches on a great meal. Wonderful waitress!
Enjoyed our anniversary dinner. Great wine selection. Thank you to our delightful waitress, Tiffany.
We finally went to Lola’s as a family! We have been wanting to go for a long time & made our reservation after watching a play at Playhouse Square. The day couldn’t have been more perfect! The service was great & the food was exceptional! I would highly recommend the butternut squash gnocchi. It was amazing! I will be dreaming of it until I get back to Lola’s!!! If you like chocolate go for Cheat Day!
Incredible. Can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Staff was top notch and very helpful.
My husband and I had a great first experience at Lola. Drinks, food, and service were amazing. I had the scallops and my husband had the hangar steak and both were wonderful. We would definitely come back.
Our server was outstanding! And the food great as always, including recommendations which were right on. Lola is truly a special venue and worthy of its reputation.
We had a great time and the food was fantastic. Best steak I had ever eaten! My fiancee had Lamb and it was fabulous,,,, We live about 45 minutes away but it is worth the drive and will go again some day. They made our moment special. I told them it was our anniversary of dating one year and before we left they brought us out two little cakes with candles with beautiful writing on the dish! If you are looking for a special place for dinner I highly recommend Lola.

Food took very long to come out but was very good.
Service was ok, nobody acknowledged the long wait for food.
For the prices charged the experience was barely ok.
Ambiance is great.
Beautiful restaurant with exemplary service. Excellent cocktails. Food very good. A few misplaced garnishes and a gritty carrot knocked down my overall rating. But then it was the Sunday after Thanksgiving and all of us were a little food weary.
very good restaurant but for most people iola would be for special occasions because of upscale nature and pricing
Lola is an experience. Everyone knows what they’re doing. You feel cared for and attended to on every level. It’s pricey, but the food is beautifully prepared and expertly delivered.
The food was absolutely amazing!! Probably one of the best meals I’ve EVER had!! The only negative was the tight seating.
Great experience and the meal was amazing.
We were disappointed only with our serving size. My dad asked me where the other half of his halibut portion was. He did love the little neck clams, though. Personally I felt like some of the waitstaff looked unkempt for such a restaurant. Otherwise, taste, presentation, and ambiance were great.
We had a nice experience, however, it’s over rated. Definitely overpriced...
Great service, wonderful food and extensive wine list.
Went for my birthday...best food i have ever tasted!
Our food was SO good! I got the chicken, it does take about 30 minutes to cook but it is AMAZING, my boyfriend got the lamb shank. Our server brought us complimentary fries to tide out hunger while we waited for our food. He was very attentive, as was everyone there. At the end they brought out a little cupcake with a candle for my boyfriends birthday. I would highly recommend! Thank you for making his 30th special!
Our meal and service were exquisite. I got the scallops and my date got the pork chop and they were both delectable. The potatoes lyonnaise (?) was like crack cocaine. The wine (Malbec) was excellent and our waiter was very good. We never felt rushed but our servers were attentive. Would definitely go again.
AMAZING FOOD! Just amazing and wonderful service. The restaurant is nice and private perfect for anniversaries or birthdays
What a delight to finally get to this Michael Symon restaurant! We came here to celebrate my birthday and the service was so great. They even came with a tiny cupcake and candle with a plate with "happy birthday" written on it at the end of our main meal. I had the lamb shank and it was so tender and full of flavor. Our meal was preceded by two of their cocktails which did not disappoint. The ambiance was low-lit and cozy. Very clean, prompt service (but jot annoyingly so). We will definitely come again!
Truly a great dining experience - service, cocktails, wine, dinner all 10+!!!
Food has amazing flavor. Basic meats and fish just come alive with the creations from the kitchen. Drinks were poured well and service was excellent. The price tag is steep as you can imagine for an iron chef restaurant but all in all everything was wonderful.
My wife’s birth day
Service was excellent and the food was very authentic and flavorful.
