Overall, the food was good but forgettable. Avocado tacos and drinks were amazing.

This restaurant is a complete delight, visually, gastronomically, everything! The ambiance is eclectic and tremendous fun! The service is superb! The food is fabulous. I came here with 5 of my lady friends (we're all over 60), and we were enchanted and blown away ... and all of us would go back in a heartbeat! In fact, I am, with a new group of people ... this time with youngsters and my husband!

Food was good. Ecclectic decor. But you should really open on time (5:30 PM and not have your customer wait until 6 PM). Also, calling restaurant back to confirm my reservation - no live person who answers phone nor was there any voicemail options.

Went here for a girl's night with some coworkers and we all loved the drinks, food, and service! The food options were perfect for sharing and the drinks were fun and delicious! Will definitely be returning

Atmosphere - very fun. Food - the three times I've gone, I've enjoyed 10 small plates. Best asparagus I've ever had. Great carnitas - enough for 2 people. I crave the Windshield cocktail which they generally only serve at dinner but they'll make it for you for lunch, if you request it. The last time I was there, I was a bit disappointed in the service & drinks, especially because I brought two friends for their first visit. The wait person ignored after she took our order & at the end of our meal, she clearly wanted us gone. I didn't see anyone standing in line, so I couldn't understand the bum's rush. The lemonaid drinks were very weak (it's not on the online menu so I can't give a name). But generally, I've loved the food & service.

I love the old location of Loló but something got lost along the way when they opened the new space. Prices have risen and quality has suffered. Bland guacamole, overly dressed brussel sprouts, nice homemade chips and avocado tacos.

Great Mexican-inspired cuisine. The meat (steak and chicken) were especially awesome. Go for the sopes and/or the tacos, and the kale salad was great as well!

It was like having Mexican tapas. Really different take on your typical mexican dishes. You know it's good when an 8 year old will try something and then say it's delicious!

...and in their new location on Valencia St., there's more space, more light, more air ... with the same superb staff and over-the-top delicious food. A place this good generally goes downhill in quality (it's so good, there's really no place to go but downhill) ... but in the 5-6 or so years I have been off-and-on eating at Lolo's, this has not happened. Kudos to the management and staff for holding the line. I'll be back again and again.

On a Tuesday, Lolo was popping like Saturday night, and despite having to wait 30 minutes for our reserved table, we liked it a lot. The folks finishing up at "our" table took that half hour for conversation after paying their check. Lolo let us know they would clear that table immediately when the earlier guests finally departed, and they brought us complimentary champagne (very nice champagne) to ease our wait. The menu is interesting and the food we ordered demanded a return visit to try the attractive choices that we left behind. Only complaint: as lifetime SFers, we are not afraid of spicy and at least one of the red sauces was surprisingly bland. Our servers were very good, well informed, and we expect to visit them again.
