The positive reviews in OpenTable were right on target. This is a quaint, well-decorated, smaller venue, with outstanding food and service. We started with the mussels - you must try these. They were the best I have ever had. My wife had a yellowfin snapper and I had the daily special which was a snapper served Greek style. Both were outstanding. Service was very good, and prices, including wine were very reasonable. We will be back and highly recommend Lola!

My wife and I were vacationing in Miami Beach, and we decided to have dinner. We had a wonderful time! I had the salmon with creamed spinach, and my wife had the gnocchi. Both were excellent. Next time we are in town, we will definitely be back.

Reviews were mixed but with fewer restaurant options in North Beach decided to give Lola's a try. Eclectic décor and friendly staff but food was only okay. Chicken was rubbery and undercooked; steak was tasty but chewy and also tough. Appetizers were fine. Great view from the outside deck.

Server never came to check on us after we got our food. Had to wait half an hour for our check after we asked for it. Got overcharged and after we paid the bill had to wait another 20 minutes to get change back. When change was brought back he gave wrong change shorting is $20 and had to wait for manager to correct it to get right change. Plus they add an 18% gratuity to the bill which our server definitely did not deserve. Food, view, and atmosphere was great but just got unlucky and had a horrible server.

Unfortunately, our Open Table reservation did not go through to the restaurant, but they were very accommodating and got us a table even though packed. Food excellent - good flavours and portion size. Excellent well priced red wines. Nice staff and whole evening went as hoped. Recommended!

My overall experience was good. When we got seated, it took a while for the waitress to come over, and when she did, she greeted us kind of Kurt, not pleasant. They didn't have a wine I wanted, and I overheard them telling other people that they were out of things. This was at 7:00 Tuesday night. Once we got our food, both dishes were very good. I had the Grouper Pic at a, and hubby had Pasta frutti de mar, and he loved it. The prices were reasonable and the atmosphere was very nice.

Slow to wait on us. Took wine glasses off table without asking if we wanted a drink. Ask if food had onions, was told no. Served with onions. So much for food allergies. BEWARE!

While the food was only average or less, the service was very spotty with periods of lots of attention followed by having to wave your arms about to get attention. Brought the bill without ever bothering to clear the plates. Then had the audacity to add an 18% gratuity to the bill with no warning! When we complained she said something about tourists and the computer. Still a rip-off. Given our choice, we would have maybe left 10% . I would stay away from any place than ran such a scam. A tip is for the buyer to decide - not the seller!

It was okay. I had reservations at 9pm, I didn't get seated until 10:05. The filet was extremely small. 8oz?! Now I see why they don't list the size. Pretty sad, I would expect the server to advise me how small it was prior to ordering it.

My salmon was undercooked, the woman next to me sent hers back as well. It was a small piece of fish, odd to not know when it is done. If you order the spring greens 'side' get the vinaigrette on the side because it was SALTY. I have been known to salt ham and this was too salty. We got reservations in advance but got seated in the seats where one side is a booth running the wall and the other is a chair, we had about a foot between our table and the ones on either side, not very private. My wife enjoyed her ribeye. Desserts were very good. They automatically put 18% gratuity on the bill which I have never seen on a group of 2.

Prices are ok for the location, 2 Entrees with their sides, 2 desserts, water and of course the forced tip came out to $100. We stuck with water because they only have wine and beer.

Food and service was excellent. My only complaint has to do with the failure of the server to inform me that an 18% tip was added to the bill. I did not realize this and tipped another 18%. Foolish me

The perfect restaurant.

Firstly, the service was impeccable; quickly seated, everyone always made sure we were taken care of, all staff was kind and attentive.

The food was DELICIOUS, we all got something different and each dish was made wonderfully! Large servings, fresh seafood, amazing pasta dishes, and fabulous dessert!

We sat and laughed for a couple hours without feeling rushed. If I lived in Miami, I’d be a regular.

Being from NYC, we’re happy to say this restaurant could give any restaurant in the big apple a run for their money (and that’s saying a lot lol)!

5 stars and would give more if I could!

I went with my aunt and uncle for dinner, they are seniors, so we showed up ten minutes early before the restaurant supposed to open but the door was open, one waiter invited us in and we be sited but he explained that the kitchen was still close.
The manager came in very rude way and quick us out and started to personnel in our way out.
We waited outside because I did not want my family to walked back and find other place close.
When finally opened, We sited again and everything was ok, our waitress was great and the food very good, but that first impression made everything wrong and the funny part we were basically the only table dinning there,
The management needs to review the manners because for reason like that, owners loss business, and in the area where this restaurant it’s located many open and close in about a year or so.
