Outstanding find!! Wonderful, creative food with plenty of options for the vegetarian and vegans in our group. The waitstaff are friendly, knowledgable, charming and patient. Interesting cuisine that is worth the costs and fun cocktails. Lovely selections of wine and beer, warm & inviting atmosphere and really delicious food. I will definitely make this a regular haunt whenever I'm in Seattle and will recommend it to all who travel there.

We had Lola breakfast, egg Benedict, and Lola freshly made doughnuts. Everything was tasty although the food is a little overpriced. The doughnuts were very sublime. However, the quality of the side fruit bowl was poor. Fruits were near spoiled.

Really great experience and yummy Greek inspired menu. Had Lamb and grandmas Greek spaghetti, Greek salad and Calamata/Fig spread. Feta turnovers for dessert. All items were great. Wait staff were knowledgeable and helpful. Will go again!

I had Eggplant Tagine for dinner at Lola. I expected a well made interesting dish with eggplant and other stuff that goes into making a tagine. Instead I had a slice of eggplant with red sauce. Very disappointing. Waitress brought some couscous in a bowl when I complained but it was simply a poorly made dish with fancy name.
Also our waitress insisted on helping us with"Greek" wines and did not let us talk to the wine steward even when we asked. She talked us out of our choice and what we had was not a good choice! May be they do not have a wine steward, but that is not what she indicated.

Amazing place for vegetarians! So good! 4 stars only because we wish the house wine was better / there were better options by the glass (red). But the food was divine!

Impeccable service! We were guided through the menu but not in an overbearing way. The food was fabulous and the wine from the Prosser winery was delicious.

Took awhile to be greeted by waitstaff. Jennifer seemed like she would rather be elsewhere. Never came by to check on us and my wife had to waive down the manager to get a replacement for her runny eggs. I had to screw the pot off the coffee pot carafe asca signal we needed more since no one was checking in with us. We LOVE breakfast at Lola but if this is the direction service is going, maybe because of the preset gratuity, we will try elsewhere.

Prices are exorbitant. Eggs benedict were $19.50 and a cup of soup, without bread or crackers, was $9. Tastes were good, not great. Menu limited

The food here was great, especially the greek salad — super authentic!! Unfortunately, the deliciousness of the food was overshadowed by our rude waitress. I’m guessing due to the 20% automatic service charge she had no reason to be friendly anyways. When asked about house special dishes she said “I don’t know it’s pretty good”

What an awesome place! So, they let you know up front that they tax on 20% service charge so you do not tip. I can’t say enough about the Eggs Benedict with Bavarian Meats ham, so good. The smashed garlic potatoes are really good as well. Every dish seemed to have full flavor. The service was great and the place looks cool. I went back a second time to have the same dish because it was so good. The Dalia Bakery chocolate walnut banana bread was a great side, super moist and not too sweet.

Breakfast for 2 each with coffee was still about $70 all in, but worth it.

The food and service at Lola was fantastic! Their fresh-made mini donuts are a must-have. My husband said his Eggs Benedict was the best he’s ever had. Would highly recommend this place!

Some friends and I were looking for a new place to try for brunch and decided on Lola.
We liked it very much. It seems very popular as the place was full. We were glad we had a
reservation. The food was delicious, the service was good and it was a high energy room.
We agreed we would return to Lola in the future.

Very creative offerings on the dinner menu. Service was awesome!
A tad bit crowded and loud. Surprise element for visitors was the 20% service charge that's tagged onto the bill. Also the $20 corkage fee is excessive.

The food is good but certainly over priced. Because they add the tip on your check, the service was not satisfactory for me though. And i have very low standards when it comes to service.

The food is good and fresh. We come here whenever we are in Seattle, however, only for breakfast. The dinner menu looks very tasty, I just haven't had the opportunity to experience it. They aren't reinventing the wheel with the breakfast options, but the dishes are very good (nothing is worse than dry eggs - not an issue here). My personal favorite is probably the granola with yogurt, but everything is good!

I marked the normally good service down due to the initial 14 minute wait before a server approached the table. The service greatly improved during the meal.
