I had a wonderful dinner Cinco de Mayo weekend with a small group of friends. This restaurant is located inside of a beautiful hotel/condo building and the ambiance is amazing. It feels incredibly luxury, intimate and exclusive as the restaurant is not big but is decorated fabulously. Our waitress was beyond nice, had amazing recommendations for not just food but drinks as well and was very attentive. The food was just delicious and a great size. I had the beet salad and added chicken. It was honestly the best beet salad I have ever had. They do not cut corners on ingredients and everything tasted very fresh. This place is a gem and I plan on returning every Miami trip I take!

Watch your bill. We had a party of five and an unmentioned service charge which was an 18% gratuity was included yet there was room to add tip on the receipt.

No direct boardwalk access. Enter from Collins, check in at front desk and restaurant is upstairs.

Market Mahi Mahi was delicious. Generous wine pour and good bread. Chicken, skirt steak and kids cheeseburgers just OK.

Very quiet nice place - 2 of three meals were very good, one served way rare :( had some appetizers which were great, $40 for lamb chop “special” a bit high then add the 18% mandatory gratuity just not a great value place - add you have to valet who were not friendly and still charged even though we had it validated at place -then sign in at desk cause it’s in a condo building - then walk upstairs to restaurant - too many other places nearby to make it worth it - just need a reason to combat all that hassle and the food good not great - service ok not great

Top notch experience at Lola on a Sunday evening. We had an excellent wine special, recommended by our server, a swordfish special with a perfect lemon caper sauce, and the cannelloni. Crispy rolls with lovely herb butter preceded the meal. Excellent service, excellent food!

We are "snowbirds" so we only have the luxury of Lola's when we are in the area. It's our first dinner stop...every year!
Food is well-prepared, staff is pleasant and efficient. Our visiting guests always request Lola's for dinner out. Peaceful ambience, too!
And a new perk is that we get to walk home on the new path behind the restaurant!

I wanted so badly to enjoy this meal. The quality of the food was excellent. But the chef tremendously over salted everything possible. I ordered the fish which was perfectly cooked but the sauce was disgustingly salty. Even the fish itself was over salted. The salads were even over salted! Literally unfinishable. What a shame to destroy a beautifully cooked meal. I am sure this is a correctable problem. Such a shame.

Very cute restaurant, great menu. Only disappointment was that one of the salads four of us tried to order was sold out (so it must be really good!). We were there as a table of 8, and it was perfect. Table was small enough yet big enough for all of us to have a good time and interact.

Amazing food and service!..the decor is cozy and inviting. tastefully designed for a great dining experience . The Provoleta appetizer was superb as well as the curry shrimp.
For the main course we had the ravioli as well and the skirt steak. everything was delicious, prepared with the right amount of seasoning .
Our waitress was very knowledgeable and recommended the perfect wine for our dinner.
Lola, you are the best of Miami Beach and we hope to see you soon! well done!

We had a birthday dinner. Everything was good. But I was a little bit surprised when they didn’t ask about deserts and ...it could be great to have a small complimentary birthday cake 🧁 which is always the best finish for high level restaurant with average check $100 🦋🙏🏻

If you are looking for a small out of the way place to spend some romantic time with your significant other this is the place. Located in a condo this restaurant is a little gem if you are looking for a quiet dinner. The food was good I got the ravioli and my wife on the salmon which was a little under cooked but they fixed it right up. We were staying at Eden Roc which was a loud and expensive this was a very nice break.

We enjoyed Lola’s so much that we had to go back again! It’s tucked away on the second floor of a condo on Collins Ave, so we were only able to find out about it online. Its a cozy, intimate room with fabulous modern decor.
The Strip steak was amazing. The creamed spinach and fries -delicious! They also have their own sauces that you can order on the side with your steaks. We tried the Mushroom and Bacon, Blue Cheese and the Chimichurri Trio and loved them all. We also tried the Snapper and the Mahi Mahi - both cooked perfectly!

This is an exceptional restaurant with great service. We can’t wait to visit again!

Food was great. The women who checked us in was also our server. She was very inexperienced. She never acknowledged our opentable reservation. We had to ask if there were any special, when we asked how something was prepared, she just said grilled. I feel like they were maybe short staffed and she was trying to do both jobs. We came down from Chicago and were a little disappointed considering all the restaurants in Miami.

Service was very slow. Had to stand up and call for a server to get drink refills. My wife’s salad came with our main course. Her food came when we were close to done. I had to walk to the bar to ask for our check and again to pay.
The food was good.
The atmosphere very trendy and clean.

I did not rate service lower because after I paid the owner came to the table and apologized and refunded my wife’s meal.

I celebrated my birthday and was very pleased with the ambiance, the food, the staff and the overall restaurant. We had the entire restaurant to ourselves but I was pleased with that. The waitress look at the notes from opentable and surprised me with a happy birthday song. It was romantic and elegant. I would highly recommend this beautiful classy restaurant.

Despite there is almost no advertising that the restaurant is there, it was almost full.
Excellent ambiance and service.
Not too expensive, but definitely not cheap.
We were a party of six (three couples) and we had an incredible night.

Gem hidden in a Collins Avenue condo building, but well worth finding. Not an extensive menu, but certainly something delicious can be found for everyne. Excellent seafood and always at least 2 specials. I've eaten here several times in the last few months alone and also with friends guests. It is always a hit for all. Prices are reasonable although alcohol drinks are pricey. There are some outside tables along the pool deck but the interior is cozy & comfortable, and a pleasurable dining experience.
