Food was wonderful. Our waitress was the best. We arrived early and were in no hurry because we were going to a play. We were not rushed and allowed to take our time. We had donuts for dessert and they were delicious.

 (Denver)·Dined on January 2, 2018

Food was great, service was fairly attentive. can be a bit cold at times if you're in the wrong seat. One thing that was a minus, my wife informed the staff it was my birthday and the staff told her they don't do anything at all special for that. No problem but then during our meal, we noticed the staff helping celebrate another birthday. That seemed strange.

Went for brunch and was not disappointed. We tried the Eggs Benedict and Tom's Favorite breakfast. Both were excellent, as were the garlic smashed potatoes and the Bloody Marys. It was on the spendy side for breakfast, but worth it. We'd go back.

We hit Lola bright and early New Year’s Day morning. I was surprised to get an 8:00 AM reservation! The food was outstanding and the service impeccable. I had the omelette with a side of bacon and my husband had the eggs benedict. Both plates were served with these amazing little smashed breakfast potatoes. They were crispy and well seasoned on the outside AND soft and creamy on the inside. I especially liked the table pot of coffee so that you can refill your cup at your own pace.

Was just ok - not remarkable.
Service was very good- she did a great job.
Had fish special and tenderloin special - maybe we should have stuck with greek go to’s.
It’s a lively spot heard they do a good brunch.
Was very expensive .

One of my favorites in Seattle. Donuts are a must! Eggs Benedict are the best I have ever had, smashed potatoes are incredible and the bacon is insanely good. Service is excellent as well. Wish I lived closer to Seattle so I could go here more often. Price is higher than normal diner food but this food is way worth it.

We loved our dinner at Lola’s. Instead of the explanation of 20% I would rather have it built into the pricing and say no tipping.

Small thing but we were a little tired hearing it explained to everyone around us.

We loved our evening and the unique delicious food. Our server was lovely.

We had 4 different breakfasts - each was excellent. ‘Tom’s Favorite’ breakfast was delicious, especially with a few dashes of the house-made salsa. My wife’s Benedict was incredible - she sacrificed when she gave me even one bite. Our server was friendly, attentive, and knew the menu inside-out. Other than being kind of cramped quarters between tables, this was a perfect way for us to start our annual pre-Christmas family day in Seattle.

Breakfast at Lola is always fantastic.
Excellent coffee.
Don't miss the doughnuts. Be sure to do one order per person; you won't want to share. Like my mother always said, "Life is short; eat dessert first."

The rest of the menu is good too.

Overall the experience was very good, excellent entrees and service. Only complaint was it took at or near 30 minutes to receive our drink order which only consisted of two martinis. Yes, they were busy but not over the top. Our wait staff was very apologetic and gave us an appetizer. I would go back.
