Breakfast at Lola with our younger son on a sleepy weekend morning. Reduced capacity so quieter than usual and need to make reservations! As always the meal was flawless and tasty. Nothing spectacular; in my experience Lola has always been been solid and reliable rather than foodie heaven. But, hey, good food and unobtrusive service while catching up with the kid—no complaints! The cooking is Greek-ish NW and done well.

It took 10 minutes for anyone to greet us at our table and offer water or a drink. We felt like an interruption to our server. She was very cold and unwelcoming. Very tiny booth for two people. Food was ok, nothing special. Limited menu options. Overrated.

I promise you I am not exaggerating when I write that Lola's in downtown Seattle made one of the BEST breakfasts I've had in ages. The service was warm, efficient and easy. Pot of coffee on our table so we didn't have to wait for refills. Warm and fluffy donuts shaken in sugar and spices at our table served with vanilla bean mascarpone and homemade jam. A must! I like my scrambled eggs creamy and not over-cooked. Rarely does anyone get this right. Lola's served my eggs to perfection. Homemade sausage. Delicious. My husband got the eggs benedict - gorgeous. Freshly sliced ham in abundance. Really, the best breakfast - so enjoyable, so delicious. When we return to Seattle, we're going to return to Lola's for sure and try dinner!

My companion and I went for lunch, and wished we had gone to breakfast instead. The food was very good, but the lunch menu is quite limited right now. The kebabs are as great as always, though, and my salmon kebab was delicious. The Greek salad was fresh and beautiful. We are so happy that Lola is back! We each had a cocktail, and I must say that they were outstanding, especially my Greyhound. We will be back, for breakfast the next time.

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.
