Very good. Old school. Shouldn't add 18% tip to the bill. I pay 20% on all good experiences but don't like it when it's added.

Food was good but service was not so good. We had to ask for silverware a couple of times and for the mashed potatoes which weee not delivered with the entree.

Food and atmosphere was great, the steaks were cooked to perfection and is was super affordable. However, the waitress brought the check to us without asking us if we wanted anything more to eat or drink (which we did) causing us to pay the check and then leave instead. I would go here for the food and the atmosphere for sure, and less for the service.

We all enjoyed the food very much. The food service was a little slow though. The location was perfect as it was close to our hotel and after dinner we walked back along the beach! Automatic 18% gratuity added on may be typical for Miami Beach but it was disappointing to our European dining guests.

 (Washington DC)·Dined on June 18, 2017

This place was an outstanding find! We were a little unsure of what we were walking in to upon arrival, but Lola exceeded our expectations tenfold. The food was definitely some of THE BEST we've had while in Miami. Highly recommend the green salad, the ravioli dish, yellow tail snapper, and chocolate mousse! They should be charging way more for their talent and quality dishes. Excellent!

Significant discrepancy between the prices published in Open Table's menus and the prices charged in the restaurant. When I raised the subject the waitress said that they had informed Open Table the new list several days before and you did not updated it. A couple of coffees and a dessert as compensation were not enough for me, as afterwards I read a review dated in January complaining of the same issue.

This place was great! I had the fried provolone appetizer which came out in a hot mini skillet, and the filet for dinner was cooked perfectly. For desert I had the brownie with vanilla ice cream. The ambiance is very nice and cozy and romantic. Not fancy fancy either, you can wear a dress and heels, but if you wore jeans and a nice shirt that works too. I definitely recommend this place and will go back.

Terrible service. Will never go back. Took 20 minutes to get someone to even talk to us, service was terrible. The waitress and owner talked poorly about our table eight in front of us because one girl had a charge on her card that wasn't right. So rude. The owner at one point wouldn't look up from his phone to answer a question. Do not go here.

Took my girlfriend here for Valentine's Day. First time I have been there but service was terrible. Took 10 minutes for the water to bring water and another 15 minutes for him to even ask if we wanted drinks. Took even longer to have him bring bread. Food was decent but I've had better. Heard people arguing in the kitchen. Took forever for the waiter to bring back my check to sign. Might have been an off night for the waiter and the restaurant as it only seemed to have 2 or 3 waiters working. Food took a long time to come out. Won't repeat.

First time here. Very lovely ambiance, very good food. Cat very attentive waitress. I had made a suggestion regarding posting a sign on beach side to boost attendance, Cat said great idea, I will tell my boss, who was at the bar on the phone..Good management would have suggested that he come over to our table and thank us for the suggestion. Poor that he did not bother. We will return , but felt the need to respond. Meeting guests by managemrpent is the key to good business.
