Lola is quite possibly the best restaurant in Seattle. The service is casual, but precise. The food is consistently excellent. The ambiance is lively and fun. Love it!

We were excited to try this place, but after going it was an overwhelming sense of “meh”. The food was okay. The service was also just okay. We saw our server a couple times, when we sat and order and then again when we paid. Thankfully the auto gratuity said it went to everyone working in the restaurant because our service from the waitress did not warrant a 20% tip. The highlight of the experience was the donuts, and the best service we got was from the young man who dropped the donuts off. Perhaps we had the bar set too high from previous brunch outings at different locations in downtown.

Last weekend, we had a family reunion celebration. Our server, Laurie was warm, engaging, and thoroughly enjoyable!! My husband and I split an omelette and Laurie was kind enough to deliver two beautiful mini-omeletttes, complete with potatoes and toast!!
Extraordinary service and excellent food!!! Everyone was delighted with the food and beverage choices. Don't Miss the Doughnuts!!

We had a good meal and service we expected from a multi-star restaurant. This was our 2nd time and the experience lived up to the previous one. For vegan or can't do dairy, the laffa is a quality dish.

The Food was amazong! Quite expensive. Friendly staff, but they seem a little bit chaotic in terms of managing their tables. The included tip policy is a bit a turn off, like a contract for a marriage. It can't be the highest level of excitement. Great wine pairing skills!
Altogether, a great location for foodies and special occasions!

Our visit for my wife's Bday coincided with Restaurant Week, but we were coming to Lola anyway! We went with the "Three Courses for $33." - I started with the Kabob on a skillet - I wanted to try the Eel Kabob and it was very tasty and fresh. My wife had the "Freshly Griddled Pita with choice of spread" and said it was great. For the entree we both choose the "Braised Lamb Shoulder, bulgur tabbouleh, sumac onions" and here is where I go off. This was bar none the best entree I have ever consumed, period. The lamb was perfect, and coupled with pomegranate and subtle mint - every bite was a tiny celebration that I did not want to end! Outstanding! I raved to the server about the dish like a crazy person. For dessert I had the "Chocolaka Bar, turkish coffee ice cream, orange spiced baklava syrup, pecan shortbread" which was very good.

The tip is automatic like most of seattle. We found we had to ask for more coffee, more tea, can we get ..... probably just getting tired, but still good compared to many.

Being Greek does not make me an expert in Greek food but Lola’s creations might have a Greek flare or basis but are not Greek. Not bad but definitely not great. But hey, if you are a tourist, going through Seattle for a few days, it’s a great spot to go and have some Greek wine.

This was my first time back at Lola's in a long time. It was my husbands first visit. We got there just before the dinner menu started so they sat us and then we just waited a bit before ordering. This is a good restaurant if you want to share things. We ordered the lamb kebabs, Spanikopita and some wilted greens. All were very good. It's not a cheap place but I do know I'm getting quality ingredients. I didn't walk away stuffed.
Service was good, music was different -- 70's-80's disco/dance music? Weird for a Greek style meal.

A large group with kids (3 years old thru 12) had dinner at Lola. The food was excellent as was the service. It was interesting take on Greek food (fusion). It's pricey but I thought the portions were decent. Our group had dietary restrictions and we all found something on the menu to eat. I would recommend this restaurant to friends/family/colleagues. I appreciated that it was kid friendly.

20% Gratitudity was included in our bill. Not sure if it's because of that but our waiter could've been better at customer service. She had no personality, didn't greet us instead we had greeted her and asked how she was doing.
