Something has changed - there is a lack of attention to detail in the service and the food that was not previously present.

Our server was quite nice once she actually showed up to our table, but we waited an oddly long time before seeing her.

Pork kabob was uninspired and my friend’s lamb shank was not hot - she reported it was “barely warm”. The kale with mizithra was the best item we ordered - when I can say I picked kale over the pork, you know something is amiss.

Had the seafood tagine and the haddock was over cooked. Years ago they used to make it with shrimp (or scallops?) and that one was much better. I only ate half of it and the waiter didn’t notice to ask if there was a problem. Still, Lola is a nice restaurant and I’m sure I’ll be returning.

Food tasted great. The service was great. I imagined Eggs Benedict to be a bit more runny on the inside, but that’s just me. The one place I would take away points is for the person at the front desk. The first person you Speak with as you walk in can’t be cold and curt, but cheerful and friendly.

Friendly staff and delicious donuts! Not a whole lot of breakfast options if you don’t eat eggs. Some vegetarian choices in their lunch menu, got a mushroom kebab which was really good.

Our appetizers were wonderful and our 15 year old son enjoyed his lamb burger. My husband and I shared the shellfish ranging and the fish was over cooked and the broth had too much saffron.
Cocktails were lovely and the service was outstanding

I am usually a fan of Tom Douglas restaurants. I had not been to Lola in quite some time and decided to give it another try. My daughter had lamb which she thought was very tender and a generous portion . I had the lamb burger which came with extremely salty chickpea fries and a day old bun. We also had the octopus as an appetizer which was very nice. The service was excellent but the food was really not anything special .

Only thing to feel comfortable is if the heater can be on. I had to wear my thick jacket and scarf the entire time for dinner. Time to eat I used my jacket as a blanket on my legs. That is the only suggestion. Otherwise, food was amazingly delicious!!

Somebody finally knows how to poach eggs! The little doughnuts were divine. They make everything and their sourdough toast is fabulous. Of course the smashed potatoes are renown. My only criticism is they could have been hotter.

The food was fantastic, but the food was slow to be delivered to us. The potatoes that were mashed and then fried were great and the salmon fresh and flavorful. I would recommend it with the hope they could serve the food faster next time.
