Margaritas were good but skip the food. Tough to get wait staff's attention
Went on a Thursday night at 6. After work crowd seated around the bar. Waiter had an attitude as soon as we walked in the door. Perhaps they were short staff but no reason to be cranky, these things tend to happen on occasion. He eventually warned up towards the middle of our dining experience and even cracked a smile when we asked for another margarita. He almost tainted my whole option of the place until the food arrived. IT WAS DELISH!! Steak was out of this world tasty and tender. Mango salmon was on point. Drinks were strong as well. Overall, I would give this place another shot.
Food and service have gone down hill. A loud dj cannot cover up for bad food and an incompetent staff.
Our waitress seemed overwhelmed and it really wasn't very busy. She didn't introduce herself, she wasn't very friendly and was reluctantly accommodating. My sister's drink was not made well. She only took a couple of sips and instead wanted to order the drink my fiancé and I ordered because we told her ours tasted good. We tried to get her attention and the waitress pretended she didn't see us trying to get her attention. She turned around after she took a few steps and signaled she'd come back. She had a very rude demeanor. The waitress gave my sister a hard time her that she would "let it slide this time" where she wouldn't charge her for the drink she was sending back.
The food was good. Other than the blue corn calamari, nothing really stood out for any of us. One item came out incorrectly, not what we ordered but didn't dare ask our waitress to fix it. Was not worth seeing her aggravated look again.
I've come here before, a while ago, and the service and food was good. I think we just weren't lucky when we were assigned to this waitress on this particular night. Unfortunately, I didn't get her name.
The food was amazing. The pina colada margarita was delicious
The hostess was LOVELY! Very nice and helpful. The food was average, nothing especially special.
Our server was great, but he was the only person working. There were 3 bartenders chatting, literally doing nothing and they couldn't bring us our drinks. I had to walk up to the bar to get our drinks that were already poured. Besides our server the rest of the staff seemed very lazy. Food was ok. Nothing special
The food is below average, the drinks are watered-down, and have no taste. The place has really gone downhill.
This was a great place to stop in to and have a nice meal and drink. The prices are fair and I would recommend this if you're in the area or simply planning for a good night out.
I must say we really liked the food. Great upgrades to your regular Mexican food. The chipotle wings were great. Loved the "taco bar" being able to mix and match different types of tacos. My 7 year old has the blue corn calamari for her dinner. It was light and and the sauce was amazing. Now to the service..... Not so good. Waitress took our order and then delivered our drinks it never returned wothout us having to ask someone to get her. Watched her bring some drinks back to the bar from a table who was not satisfied with them. She tasted them and then waited there until new ones were made which wasn't quick. Clearly no interest the tables she was to be attending to.
Seated promptly. Food was good and staff was attentive.
It was a Wednesday night but only one server acting as hostess and server. Slow service. Food was pretty decent, the churros were really good. White sangria didn't taste fresh, but pre-mixed, even the garnishes were turning brown. I've been there before and the quality was better.
The food was terrible and tasteless. The waitress had no customer service skills. Will not be going back to this restaurant.
Pathetic attempt at quality Mexican food. Look elsewhere.
Upon arriving, I was informed that the restaurant was booked for a party of 100 people, "and it is going to get noisy in here, haha!"
I waited at the front desk for 5 minutes and finally asked a waitress if I could speak to a hostess. "There's no hostess tonight, sorry" as she walked away. Maybe the food here is ok, I don't know, because we walked out.
It's very noisy, and is basically a young party place, and definitely not a restaurant to bring a date or a family to, as it's a singles bar. I did have a margarita while waiting, and whenever a bartender puts club soda, sour mix, or water into a margarita, it's a very bad sign, and the margarita sucked. If a Mexican restaurant can't offer an outstanding margarita, don't go.
My overall rating is, it's might be a chain restaurant, not sure and don't care. It's noisy, poorly managed, and the food is probably less than average judging my my drink. If you want rally good Mexican food, don't go there.
We have dined here 5 or 6 times and the food was fine. This time it was not good. A scoop of pulled pork in a flour tortilla, no fresh ingredients, no imagination. Five people dined on enchiladas, tacos, paella, quesadillas, fajitas. There was no spice and sizzle to the fajitas, nor was there any flavor in the tacos. Don't know if the chef changed, but we will definitely not be going back.
There tacos are great! We ordered three different ones each. If you order three it's only $12.00. This was enough food to make a meal in itself.
There were less than 10 people at Lola's the night we were there. Waiter was also the bartender, bus boy, preparer of take out food and he did a good job considering he did everything but cook our food. The food was nothing exciting and I would not rush back . Of course, I think most people go for the bar scene but we weren't there for that.
The Pallela and the tacos are what we go for. Each weeknight they have a themed "happy hour" option so it makes it a reasonable price for a great night out.
Went here for my dad's birthday lunch. Good was yummy, margarita was delicious, service was attentive. Always a great time to go there :)
Horrible food. The "burrito" was basically a steak wrap. This place sux.
Mediocre food, limited menu, poor service. Would not go back
Creative and enjoyable take on traditional Mexican dishes. Family night out. Sunday evening service was friendly but a little slow.
Service was excellent. 2 beers on tap were out. Considering there are only 6 or so to choose from this is bad. And they were my top 2 choices. Bartender made good by sending over some free tequila shots though not top shelf. Food was good. I ordered tacos but they were on flour tortillas, would have preferred corn. Overall a nice experience but probably won't rush back
Whenever I'm meeting a friend that lives in Westchester, I always recommend that we go here. The food is consistently excellent.
The salsa and chips brought to the table are amazing. I would buy a jar of this salsa if I could. Everything that I've ordered here has been great. I'm prone to getting the chicken burrito, but the tacos are also good. It's hard for me to order something new when I come here because I dream about the chicken burrito.
I've gotten and margarita and sangria. Both are wonderful. I don't know what the dessert is like, but I assume it's as good as everything else.
If you're coming here after 7, I would definitely recommend setting up a reservation. It fills up quickly.
This place is LOUD. So loud, in fact, that I had to point to what I was ordering on the menu because the waitress couldn't hear me. They have three types of guacamole. I asked for the mango guac but she didn't hear me so we got the regular. They also forgot an ingredient in a salad and... Thought we wouldn't notice? I had a really nice time and the place looks really cool, but I'm not sure it's worth the prices.
I started the tradition of going to Lola's New Year's Eve 2014 and we had an awesome time. I love the food my children love it too I think as long as I am alive I will be celebratingNYE at lola's thank you for making my new year's eve special!!
Meh. The food was overpriced for the most part. We had the brisket nachos which was the best part of the meal. Then we shared the steak fajitas and for $20 we felt that the 6 small pieces of meat was meager. We each had the shrimp taco which was incredibly spicy- too spicy! There was no indication it would be spicy.
My husband had a mojito which he said was pretty awful and he struggled to drink. I had a glass of red sangria which tasted more like grape juice than sangria.
Service was fine.
Overall, I would not go back.
Great little find. Really solid restaurant. Food was really good and the menu had some interesting twists on some classics. Service was solid. Plenty to like here. Definitely going back.
Horrible food, worst Mexican I've ever had. Their drinks are made with mixers too. Our waitress was rude and we were only one of her two tables.
I was not impressed with the food, drinks or service and would not go back. Very disappointed.
After making a reservation for dinner, my guest and I arrive at the restaurant and were told the main dining room area was closed off to reservations only (yes, still shaking my head). We were given a high table in the bar area. Typically, I prefer eating in the bar area/high tables parts of restaurants for the energetic atmosphere. But this place did not have that feel. It was also as bright as day in the bar area. After being seated and waiting 10 minutes for a waitress, we place our drink orders. After another 10 minutes, our drinks arrived, completely melted down. It was clear they were sitting up on the bar for 9 of the 10 minutes. We decide to put an app in- ordered the calamari. I've had better tasting and presented food at my college dorm. Serving a dipping sauce in a plastic cup container, seriously? No idea how this place is still in business. Best part of my night was asking for the bill after our two watered down drinks and cafeteria quality calamari.
Food is good, both food and drinks priced fair for White Plains area. Have gone a number of times, will probably go again.
After we were seated, I noticed a table near us that had not been cleaned after the patrons had left. This table remained uncleaned even after we were finished. They took forever to bring us water. The food was served so quick and also undercooked so it seemed as though they microwaved the food. The meal had no flavor or taste. Taco Bell has better food. Not to mention, the food was way overpriced for what you get.
more than what i expected. great food and lovely service.
Had a very nice time in Lolas- Went for birthday , had semi-private room in back which was nice. Food and service were are all great. Would have liked some live music. Fish Tacos, guac, enchiladas all tasty. Nice pitcher of strawberry margaritas. Service very good. Would recommend highly.
Let's just say I'm glad my "mother's day meal" was free. I probably shouldn't have ordered paella, the mussels were very fishy. The place wasn't very busy, but service was horrible. We placed an order for an appetizer, never got it. When the food came, I told the waitress to cancel the appetizer since it never came. She just said "ok", no apologizes nothing. The place is pretty, nice atmosphere, but I don't think I'll try it again. I was very turned off.
The food was great but the music was TOO LOUD. It felt more like a night club then a restaurant. We went on Cinco de Mayo thinking they would have traditional Mexican music but it was LOUD club music the entire time. I recommend Lola's if you want to go out with friends for drinks but not if you want to talk over dinner.
Decent but unexciting Mexican food tailored to American ideas. It's all just a little bland. Do they make their own salsas? Their own tortillas? One suspects 'no'.
I visited Lola's a few times when they first opened and it always fell short of a great time. I tried it for the third time with my sister in December 2014 and we had a delicious lunch and I remember having an excellent Margarita. I was excited to go back because the margarita was so good. I went with a friend a few days ago (March 2015) and the service was great but my margarita was so bad. It tasted too sweet and watered down (We had a strawberry and mango margarita on the rocks) . We both thought it might grow on us but in hindsight we should have sent it back because it was that poor. Very disappointing. The entrees were good- we both had fajitas and service was good but I don't think I will go back again.
