Wonderful food! The donuts are the best I've ever had. Also enjoyed the roasted red pepper spread and the spaghetti, although everything we ate was delicious.

The staff is just top notch, went above and beyond to make this a special lunch outing. Every bit was delicious. I felt the portions were a bit small for the price of the chicken skewer/Greek salad combination. But I also realize I’m paying for Seattle rent and for the employees to get good wages, so the prices are not a deterrent. Thank you Tom Douglas for creating such a delightful “empire”.

Pleasantly surprised by Lola. (Probably shouldn't be too surprised by a Tom Douglas restaurant.) Since our favorite restaurant in Seattle (Greek or otherwise), Plaka Estiatorio closed last year, we have been unable to find a worthy successor for good Greek food. Having seen Tom Douglas eating at Plaka, we trust his taste, and were not disappointed. The grilled octopadi was great. I loved being able to order a whole bunch of little plates in order to create our own mezze platters. Even their house red wine was superb. Rich and fruit-forward, but pairing perfectly with deliciously salty foods. The service was exceptional. With our waitress being happy to make suggestions, and special accommodations. Overall, I cannot find anything to complain about. The bill was well over $200 for 2-people. But, we left totally and completely satisfied.

Lola is an elegant breakfast place with a lovely atmosphere. The oatmeal (with interesting spices, including cardamom) and the home-made honey-based granola (with greek yogurt, grapes and apple slices) were both delightful.

The waitress forgot our order and our entrees came before our appetizers. They took the entrees away and brought them back half an hour later obviously having been kept warm because the sauces were dried on the squid kebebs and the pasta was luke warm . It made for very poor quality food
Such a shame as we had heard great things.

I like Lola especially because they serve breakfast items late into the day. The service is wonderful, the servers are friendly and quite attentive, and the food is interesting and beautifully prepared and presented. The only regret is that now that Dahlia Lounge across the street has sadly stopped serving lunch, Lola is even more crowded and very noisy. It is not a place for intimate conversation, business or personal. Still, a good place to have a fun meal in down town Seattle!

We come back here every time we visit Seattle. The rustic toast and jam is my favorite. The smashed potatoes are also delish! I got the falafel this time around and I loved it. It’s just a sweet spot to enjoy breakfast!

We love Lola’s and have enjoyed many scrupulous Greek meals when visiting Seattle and staying in Hotel Ändra. However 2 of our 6 dishes were way too salty! The Horta and the vegetables with the lamb souvlaki. The other dishes were flavor filled and our wait person delightful. We enjoyed a delicious Liatiko from Crete!

Thanks you for being a loyal customer here. I’m sorry you had some dishes that were over salted. I hope you let us know so we could fix the issue on the spot. We want everyone happy before they leave. We would love to see you again next time you’re in town.

Though we had made the reservation prior to coming to Seattle (based on some great reviews) every native Seattleite(?) said we had made an awesome choice.
All were correct. Each dish was amazing and the service perfect. Will definitely recommend to all who ask.

Fabulous staple good breakfast options and also gourmet options. The beauty of this place is basic food that doesn’t taste basic. Want good simple buttermilk pancakes? But perfectly made and not sugary? Or full of preservatives? Not IHOP? Come here. The Benedict was delish. And of course, as all the other say the donuts were warm and yum. But that being said. I was impartial to my sausage egg and pancake breakfast and the Benedict’s. If you have had warm beignets before, they’re donuts are exactly that. But I wouldn’t necessarily order again bc my palette draws me to the other food. So if you love beignets, order them, if not, trust your gut and order other stuff because everything else is just as amazing.

My gf and I went for a casual, early birthday breakfast meal. We ordered Tom’s favorite and the crab Benedict (seasonal special- would highly recommend). My gf was pleasantly surprised by a plate of doughnuts with a small birthday candle planted into the lemon mascarpone cream. The servers were pleasant and very welcoming during this entire meal.
