They were unable to serve the Idaho trout - an entree that had been talked up by our friends and that we had really been looking forward to. Ran out, they said. Other than that the service was slow and it was near-impossible to get the attention of the waiting staff. I ordered fried cauliflower as a side dish but it never came. The waiter seems to have forgotten. Finally the chicken kebabs were disappointing. They were sumptuously listed on the menu but in reality were barely passing grade. The term “kebab” evokes exotic flavours and delicate aromas. Lola’s version was like a McDonald’s version of a kebab - if that.

Lola is one of our favorite restaurants in Seattle for breakfast for over ten years. We ate there all four mornings we were there during this trip and look forward to our return. Our server confirmed that the breakfast potatoes had recently been changed and wondered if we had noticed the difference. We confirmed that we had and that they were as good as the previous version.

 (Denver)·Dined on February 10, 2018

There was a slight wait even though we had a reservation. The tables around us were quite loud especially one where they even brought an extra chair up that blocked the aisle. The service was slow. We had not received water until after we ordered and there is no bread for the table. Our dinners were brought out by someone other than our server. The lamb burger was good but sparsely garnished. The Seafood was overpriced and underwhelming. They forgot the orzo in the dish and since our waitress didn’t check on us for a long time it didn’t get corrected until after we were halfway through. She actually took a clean spoon from the wait station and put it in my meal to see if there was orzo in the dish. I could see it wasn’t there but if you put so little in that you can’t see it without putting a spoon in then you need to revise your recipe. I’ve never had a server actually touch my food in this way. The manager did comp our drinks and gave us a dessert as we mentioned that things were just “ok” but we weren’t in the mood to give a real complaint. The final kicker is that in the bill they charged an automatic 20% tip on the full bill. This was mostly a server error and I would not have tipped. I believe my bill should not reflect a tip and the seafood should have been removed or drastically reduced.

We went to Lola for our Valentine's Day dinner. After talking to our server, we decided to do the Dinner for Two. The pita took a little bit longer to come out than we anticipated (about 45 minutes), but there was so much food we hardly noticed by the end. It was a wonderful experience and we would be happy to return.

 (Portland)·Dined on February 7, 2018

We met friends at Lola at 6:15 pm before an 8 pm movie @Cinerama, and informed our server that we had tickets for the 8:00 film. However, our food didn't show up until 7:35. It was hard to appreciate the combination of flavors as we rushed to eat full entries, settle the bill and be out the door by 7:55. Worst service we've had at any restaurant in a long time (and not even an apology).

First, Tim is consistently awesome and always personable. My husband and I always hope we get him when we visit! (That and your made-to-order doughnuts.) ;)

Unfortunately, we didn’t get Tim this time—the young lady who did wait on us was pleasant but clearly overwhelmed and we hardly saw her. So-so there. But we did get to talk to Tim and he told us some funny jokes, so there was that.

I love Lola...a few years ago I discovered the unique European feel, and felt so pampered by the coffee served in French press pots, amazing doughnuts, and delicious breakfast with perfectly baked potatoes. Sadly this time, I was disappointed to find no French press pots and the potatoes were badly over cooked...as if they had been left too long in a warming oven. Some were like rocks and completely non edible. I hope Lola was just having a bad day and is not going downhill. I'll be back for the doughnuts for sure...but the rest was a bit disappointing.

Lola's was absolutely OUTSTANDING!!! I wish there was one in the San Francisco Bay Area. Our waitress was off the charts helpful (many food allergies at our table). She was welcoming and wanted us to have the BEST experience and we did! The food and wine were so tasty, well presented, fresh, plentiful and just a wonderful time had by all. We NEVER felt rushed and it was a VERY busy evening. 10👍🏽's UP!

Best service we've ever had at Lola. Made me wish the tip wasn't automatically included. She deserved more. The food was very good, as usual, although my medium steak was a bit quivery. If I'd had more time I would have sent it back--instead I gave the wiggly bits to my husband to eat. The broccoli and the sweet potato dishes were both outstanding. I wish the tables were a bit smaller as I felt like I had to yell across the table to be heard.

This restaurant is in my top 5 Seattle restaurants. I not only love the food, but also the ambience and service. I am not a person who typically eats a lot of meat, but the lamb is to die for. In addition to being a perfect spot to dine with a friend or two, this is a great spot for a birthday, anniversary or other special occasion
