The prices here are high and the food is just OK. The 20% automatic gratuity is ridiculous. Not going back.

The made to order donuts are a Seattle brunch must. Worth a visit anytime. Only downside is that table near the door can be cold, but the staff were happy to move us to a warmer spot when one was available. Always friendly service!

Good atmosphere, interesting menu selection, and superb service. The meats were a little on the heavy side. There was a strong food smell in the restaurant to the point that my clothes had a very strong smell when I got home. A little pricy for what it was.

 (London)·Dined on December 3, 2017

We had a tasty meal here. Service was attentive, but slow when she had to go ask the bartender or the chef questions about the drink/food (a) Which island was the ouzo from? No one knew. b) Is there wheat in the Persian Love Cake? No, and it was so yummy.)

My only complaints about Lola are 1) the noise level is very high, I forget how unpleasant it is, and 2) the open kitchen leaves our clothes smelling like cooked food. I remember when Lola first opened, they said they knew the noise was a problem and they were going to address it. We were going to the theatre that evening, and I hate smelling like food!

Otherwise, the food was delicious, as always.

Our reservation was not honored, although we arrived on time. We waited 50 minutes while being consistently told that the wait would only be "5 minutes more," which was obviously untrue. When finally seated, we were rushed through our dinner, and nearly missed our theater reservations. Many others were evidently in the same predicament.

The salmon Benedict hit the spot here. All of their ingredients are made in-house. Bloody Mary’s were ok, nothing special. They do charge a 20% service charge on every thing you order (yes, separately) so add 20% to each item you’d like off the menu. But this counts as your tip. Service is fine.

 (Vancouver)·Dined on November 18, 2017

Our dinner was good, but pretty hit and miss. We started with the spreads, the cheese spread was amazing, the kalamata olive spread was okay. We then had the greek salad, which was very basic, essentially some cut cucumber, cherry tomatoes, a few olives and a slice of feta on top and minimal seasonings. We also had some skewers, which were delicious, but not mind-blowing and the delicata squash, which was again, pretty basic - no complex flavors, something you could whip up quickly at home (much like the greek salad).

The made-to-order donuts for desert were amazing, not surprising as baked goods and deserts are really TD strengths. The service was excellent and I thought the house wine was a great value. Overall, super underwhelmed for a $130 dinner.

The lamb is clearly their best dish, the cocktails were great. The noise is deafening. We have gone before, don't go with more than 4 and get a seat in a booth or by the window. With 6 we were seated center open. No lighting and loud! Really loud! We could not talk across the table.
Coconut pie is overrated, nothing but whipped cream, don't bother.

Delicious! Enjoyed the happy hour specials of saganaki, chicken kebabs, and lamb meatballs. What elevated the food was subtle touches - for example - extra spice in the tomato sauce with the meatballs, pouring ouzo on a seating place with charred onions to accompany the kebabs to get that slight licorice flavor. Definitely will go back.
