Lola has never disappointed. The food is always exceptional and the service is great.
The place can get a little noisy but I just think everyone is enjoying themselves and can’t help being enthusiastic. I love this place.

Great meal, as usual, at Lola last night. The special creamed spinach malawach was a BIG hit!

Lola remains one of my favorite restaurants. It's also wonderful that it's nearby. But even if it were a distance away, I'd be happy to travel in order to dine there. They put a creative spin on classic Mediterranean dishes, without compromising the essence of the dishes. Everything always tastes very fresh. While there are preparations of delicious, locally sourced meat and fowl, the menu also offers sumptuous options for vegetarians. And the waitstaff, most of whom seem to be fine mixologists, are terrific as well.

Food was great, the waitress was great although I forgot her name. We had a smashed sweet potato appetizer, which was delicious. The chicken shawarma and the baba ganoush were great! Also I had their Maker's Mark drink, I believe it was called spice? It was pretty good. Flavors were great service was great, definitely will be back.

Tatziki and bread for appetizer were delishious. The lamb korma and veggies were flavorful and outstanding. The baked Alaska was perfect and came out quickly. All in all good atmosphere and service with food to back it up....

Small restaurant with interesting Mediterranean cuisine. The hummus was very tasty as was the truffled mushroom malawach pizza. The skewers (duck, lamb) were also delicious. You must get the baked Alaska for dessert. We went during Mother's Day weekend so the place was packed and it was incredibly noisy. Like shriek at the top of your lungs so that the person sitting across from you can hear you noisy but I'd chalk it up to enthusiastic diners celebrating with Mom.

I usually give Lola 5 stars. However, we were not thrilled with the choices on the Restaurant Week Menu this time. We should have ordered off of the regular menu. We love those choices! Live and learn. We will be back.

Restaurant was clean and relatively empty, we were seated immediately. My friends seemed to enjoy the drinks they got, mine was overly sweet and a bit off putting, definitely not what I ordered. Our party had some dietary restrictions and the server was accommodating with answering any questions. The food arrived quickly and was superb, easily the best part of the meal and the reason to return.

The most delicious, savory, mouthwatering cuisine! I had the falafel appetizer, beef sirloin skewer for my entree, roasted cauliflower as my side, and passionate for my cocktail.  Every single dish exceeded my expectations.  It is probably the most flavorful food I’ve had in Long Island.  This restaurant is definitely a cut above the rest. My family and I go out to eat once a week. We tend to go out locally in Nassau.  WE also love NYC restaurants, which tend to have world known chefs at Michelin star restaurants. This restaurant is very comparable to NYC restaurants.

We were seated immediately with a reservation. Waitress was super nice. Roasted BRUSSELL sprouts, mushroom pizza and mushroom/onion humus were incredible! Never tasted anything so delicious. Also great was the bronzini. This restaurant is definitely a keeper.

Every time I visit Lola, I have the best time! The staff is so friendly, helpful and attentive. The ambiance is nice and the menu is fantastic. Most times, we just order a bunch of appetizers and small plates and share them among the table. I also make sure to also get an extra order to go! One of my absolute favorite restaurants.
