Overall, food was lackluster. Sweet potatoes on the Duck Benedictos were way too big and overpowering, and the chicken fried steak was way too chewy and tough. The brunch menu isn’t as good as it used to be. Drinks were good though, service was attentive and when they made a mistake, they fixed it. Also wasn’t terribly expensive compared to some other places for brunch in Denver.

Our waiter, Jordan, was friendly, attentive, and efficient. The food was outstanding and being that my friend and I were both on restrictive diets, Jordan was quick to recommend excellent choices. The atmosphere was exciting and fun! We're going back tonight for another round of business meetings. Thx! ....chris

Lola changed their menu and it's disappointing bc I used to love this place. 5 of 5 people in my party didn't really like their dish...Drinks are great though! Lola should stick with the more traditional Mexican fare instead of going upscale, it was way better.

Jamie (owner) and his staff have created a fantastic dining establishment. I have lived in the LoHi area for many years and ever since it opened, Lola has provided wonderful food and a delightful atmosphere.
The tableside guac and jalapeño infused margarita are worth every penny!
Highly recommend!

We went for 2 birthdays and they were super gracious and attentive despite a 13 person party. The food was fantastic but is pretty spicy, so make sure you ask how hot a dish is if you're sensitive to heat. My husband and I like spicy food and we loved it! They do note its spicy but some people in our party didn't realize how hot it would be. Great venue, amazing food, and terrific service. This was our first time for dinner but have been for brunch many times. Will come again for dinner!

Lola was AMAZING! I kept having to add more people to the reservation and they were more than accommodating with us. Shout out to Jen (and everyone else) who took care of our table that night. We had people staggering to arrive and that was not a problem. We had queso, yucca fries, ceviche, and the brussel sprouts. OH THEY WERE GOOD! Service was absolutely fantastic! Will definitely be going back!

Lola is a reliable standby. A warm atmosphere, friendly staff, relaxed seating and fabulous food. The menu changes regularly but not too frequently - or too much. Favorites remain - breakfast plates, the made-at-the-table guac, and of course the amazing bloody marys! It would take a lot to knock this place off my personal Top Five Brunch Spots list.

We decided on Lola because we had been once before for Happy Hour before a show. I also have great respect for Big Red F restaurants in general.
We had brunch on a Sunday, were cheerfully a greeted, got a table right away. Our server was very friendly and was present when we need him.
The food was good in general except that I had the Crab Cake Benedict and it was very mushy and just did not have a "fresh" character or flavor. I was prepared to be blown away, as I have become accustomed to with this restaurant group, but this food experience makes me hesitant to be adventurous in the future.
Great place, maybe this was just an exception to the rule...

Brunch was delicious! We celebrated our anniversary and were complimented with two glasses of Champagne and dessert. The staff were welcoming and new how to take care of us. The best part of LOLA was the chicken and waffles!!! To die for! I am Latin and it was Southern Comfort food with a Mexican Twist.

We were four friends on a girls weekend in Denver. I reserved a table at Lola in advance, and after looking at the menu with my friends, we all were excited to eat there. We had to wait a few minutes after our reservation time for our table to be ready, and once we were seated, the table side guacamole cart was brought to us, and we were given a free guac as thanks for our patience. It was completely unnecessary (we waited less than 10 mins), but very thoughtful and much appreciated (our group LOVES guac, we were going to order it anyway :)) All of our meals were tasty, the drinks were fab, especially the Lady Killer, the energy was great, and we had a fun evening out! My only negative comment was that it was very loud in the restaurant, which did make some conversation difficult. All in all, we would highly recommend Lola!

The table side guacamole is always wonderful! The rest of the food was good, but not outstanding. The carne asada was tough (even when done at medium rare), so I wouldn't order that again. I like their happy hour menu better than their dinner menu. The drinks are always good though.

Lola was fantastic! It's been a couple of years since we've been there and we have been missing out! Food, service, ambiance- everything was perfect. Salsas were amazing- we ended up getting all four. We are in Chicago regularly and eat at Frontera and this was every bit as good.

Okay, but not what it used to be. This visit was very average compared to previous visits over the 7 years we've been dining at Lola. To begin, they have changed their tap beer offerings and offer only one Mexican Lager beer on tap (brewed in Colorado); bottle selections were not as good either. In addition, the wine selections were limited and they were out of some offerings. Food menu was okay, but also not as good as it used to be. I had the Shrimp & Grits and for $22 there were only 3 medium(ish) bacon wrapped shrimp and a scoop of grits. My daughter had the tacos and she said they were also just okay. I feel like Lola has created an average sized menu with so so entrees and kept the prices at or near the days when it was a fantastic place to eat and drink. I hope Lola returns to the Lola of the past- it was fantastic!
