Great night at the outdoor tables. One of our favorite staff serving tonight. Perfect selection for what we wanted: pita with spreads, beet salad, salmon and chicken kabobs, and asparagus with chermoula. And beautiful weather this evening.

Lola is consistently one of my favorite Seattle restaurants. A little on the pricey side- but you get fantastic flavors, classic items on the menu but some new ones each time, high quality food and great service. Love this place!

The staff was very accommodating when our table wasn’t ready at the time of our reservation (we got free hummus and pita bread.) The entrees and side veggie dishes were outstanding! We could have got our coffee sooner, but that was only b/c our server was brewing a fresh pot for us. We had an evening show to attend, so our check was processed quickly.

We had a very enjoyable dinner before Jazz Alley. Our food was very good, especially the beet salad and kabobs. We had a couple of nice white wines and Carrie was a great waitress. She explained everything and let us take our time which was what we enjoyed.

the tagines are always excellent, especially the seafood one. Also, there lamb ravioli (appetizer) is so good that I had it two nights in a row. If I'd been staying at the Andra for another night, i'd have probably had it again.

Food was absolutely delicious. The waiter gave us advice on what to order when we asked, as Mediterranean is not our usual choice for eating out. However, this whole experience gave us each more inspiration to eat Greek food. Also, for vegetarians such as myself, they have great options to try. My meal was just as good the next day after reheating. :) Will definitely go again!

Had quite a few, new Greek dishes that I have never seen in other Greek restaurants. Portion sizes were some what smaller than in other restaurants but quality was exceptional. Also, like the fact that they add 20% service charge to the bill that goes to all restaurant workers. Wish ALL restaurants would do that.

The Tom’s breakfast (sort of an octopus hash) was one of the most unique and satisfying brunch dishes that I have had in ages. My 8 year old daughter even ate several chunks of the perfectly braised chunks.

Mediterranean tapas and meals, really stunning. Not pretentious, nothing "deconstructed" or elevated. But it was all beautiful and delicious.

Service was a bit slow, but server was very informed and helpful.

Loved the food but the value missed. $15 for three lamb kebabs and grilled onions was excessive especially since the ouzo was missing; I expected more. My wife’s lamb burger was great. For $3 more, she had a whole meal.

I was really surprised by my meal this time. Maybe it was an off night, but I picked Lola because I had good meals before and loved it. The meal was just okay, which is not what I have ever experienced in the past. The meat tasted gamey and tough, and the server kept forgetting who had what and that drove me a bit nuts. The salad was way over dressed and limp as a result. The staff was very nice as usual.

I guess this place is okay - the service was not great, the coffee cup was not clean when I arrived, and the food came out two minutes after we placed our order... uh, hot lamps much?

Once the food arrived, the server did not come back to check on us.

Go here if you want average, typical tourist/hotel breakfast fare.

I really like the restaurant and the service is always good and the food consistent. While I understand the explanation on the menu I don't like the automatic 20% gratuity regardless of size of party etc... If the service is good then I am happy to leave an 18-20% tip, however if it is not then I should not be forced to pay this amount to subsidize the staff medical plan etc...

Ok... I love this place and often just sit in the bar to eat. I’ve been rolling through the menu and can honestly say there has not been anything that I would not order again. Service is only topped by the food. Try the octopus or lamb dishes (any of them - really). Perfect Greek salad and the nicest bar staff. Breakfast is also good with large enough portions to split.

Friendly service. Bartenders struggle w making non menu drinks. Also cocktails are exceptionally light on alcohol- have a very virgin flavor to them. Kebabs are small servings and over priced for the portion. Food was average at best for definitely overpriced. Definitely better options in Seattle for the price- would probably skip this spot for dinner

As usual, we are always treated like special guests when we are dining at a Tom Douglas Restaurant. The complimentary Cava to begin our Anniversary Dinner is a lovely touch. The service was excellent, the food delicious and the overall experience so very enjoyable.
