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.

The breakfast is usually really good, but this time everything was over cooked and hard and the eggs were undercooked. Disappointing since we drove from Olympia and we’re looking forward to the meal.

My wife and I had breakfast and it was and always is spectacular! We are monthly regulars because we live 90 minutes away and Lola is always worth the trip! Lola have the best pancakes and absolutely the best homemade breakfast sausage links!! I always order extra sausage links to take home with me because they are so unique and delicious. I highly recommend making a reservation if you don't want to wait a long time during the weekend.

Lola's didn't stint at all on their Restaurant Week dinner. Portions were generous and dishes were well prepared. Salmon was done simply but perfectly. All desserts on regular menu were available. Our server, Grace, was great--warm and knowledgeable but not intrusive. A first-rate part of Tom Douglas' ever-expanding universe.

I've had their Tom's Big Dinner, which consists of several courses. The first time, it was heavenly & my guest raved about it. This time I took a second guest, & there's been a huge change in flavor. The 1st course is pita bread with a multitude of different spreads. Avoid the kalamata spread because it was so salty, it affected the flavor of the other spreads. Chicken & squid kabobs arrived next with a greek salad. By itself, the chicken kabobs were very good, but the salty/spicy squid kabobs were affected by the mouth puckering salty salad. Everything in the salad, including the tomatoes suffered from too much salt. The 3rd course of galic smashef potatoes , greens & lamb would ordinarily be wonderful, but my taste buds were so affected by the high level of salt that everything tasted off. The greens, which were simply dressed with olive oil & lemon was inedible. One of the greens is what the Japanese call chiso, it has a sour flavor similar to Japanese ume, a pickled plum. It permeated the greens & was not a good combination with olive oil & lemon. The lamb should be served medium rare & it was overdone & tough. Again my taste buds were so affected by the previously salted dishes. The last course of pillowy doughnuts were like beignets & were wonderful!

Service was excellent. I mentioned to the server that the salad was salty & without asking, they deducted the cost of that dish & management stopped by several times to ensure the rest of the meal was satisfactory. I didn't have the heart to tell her the meal was totally affected by the oversalting.

Best meal of our 5 days in Seattle! Pleasant atmosphere, quiet enough to have dinner table conversation. The food was delicious and unusual with plenty of options for a vegetarian. My favorites: roasted delicata squash with harissa and feta, and the incredibly delicious, brioche based donuts, not too sweet, served with mascarpone and jam.

Food was great, service fantastic. Had an issue when we were seated. I had made a reservation for 6:30, but we were not seated until after 7. This was our 29th anniversary dinner. The hosted to comp our drinks and provided champagne at the end which was much appreciated. So the issue is more with the process that led to the late seating, and not with the staff, who were great.

If you love Greek food, this is the best Greek-inspired dining in town . The Greek salads come with a big hunk of feta on top, just like in Greece! The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars across the board is because it is just too loud.

We had a fine dinner, but the spicing is not subtle. I do not care for heavy spices and the delacata squash had way too much pepper for me. When I told the waitress, she said that they add the spices at the end and can modify the dish upon request, but I did not know to ask, and she did not offer to bring another one, and I did not ask for a new dish because I do not like to make waves at a restaurant. I had the starter meatballs as a main dish and that was delicious. My husband had the moussaka which he liked as well. The signature dessert -- the coconut cream pie which is fabulous.

Food was excellent and the service was even better! Our waitress was very responsive to our needs as we needed to be at the Cinerama (block away) in 1 hour and 15 minutes. We happened to go during restaurant week, so she was able to get us cocktails, 3 courses of food and our bill within that timeframe. We were celebrating my birthday, and enjoyed an extra dessert on the house, with a candle in it! She was an incredibly cheerful waitress, and seemed happy to answer all my questions about the menu and make recommendations. I highly recommend the Alaskan Salmon and the Kopanisti spread as an appetizer.
