Food and service were great. It was very quiet for a 645pm Friday night but not complaining.

Our evening started off great even though the server tried to offer us drink specials which were only available on weeknights. But after our food (which was very good) came, she disappeared. No checking in to see how our food was, no offer for another round, no dessert offered and no acknowledgement of my birthday which was both noted in our reservation and mentioned by my friend when we ordered our drinks. A disappointing end to what should have been a really great night.

I wasn’t pleased with my tacos at Lola’s, as they came dressed with what looked and tasted like French dressing. Yes, orangey French dressing! They’d have been good if accompanied by Mexican condiments.
My partner didn’t love his burrito either.
We won’t be back.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
