Like most places, operating a bit short staffed

SERVICE
20 minutes to get water and place drink and app order

Apps show up 15 minutes later
Drinks show up halfway through appetizers
Entrée showed up really close to the appetizers so we had to rush to eat them to make room on the table
Took 30 minutes to get the check and pay

Really only had 20 minutes to eat both appetizers and Entrée despite being there for an hour and a half

FOOD
Cooked really well, clean and fresh ingredients, presentation was good, which is why this next part was so frustrating

HAD ZERO AND I MEAN ZERO FLAVOR

Which is even more confusing when you're mixing two of the most robustly flavored regions of food together

No lime in the crema
No lime to be found anyplace
No salt in any of the food
Ceviche had no citrus flavor somehow and it's supposed to be cooked in citrus juice
Underwhelming is the word of the day for the food

What a pleasant surprise! LaLo was a fun, upbeat, delicious experience! Based on other Open Table reviews, we took a chance on a relatively unknown restaurant. LaLo was able to take a last minute reservation for 6 people. The food was outstanding, especially the lime shrimp tacos, burritos, and chips trio. Highly recommend this restaurant with a fun group of people.

Hooray for Court Street! This is our destined to become our go-to for casual nights in the neighborhood. There's nothing fussy about this Asian-Mexican meld; it's tasty, fresh and fun, and the (frequently overworked) staff gives great service. We could do with less noise, but that's just us.

I am madly in love with LaLo. We’ve been here 6 times in the past month and a half, and we haven’t even begun to get our fill. The new location on Court Street (which is truly THE sweetest street) is just right. The servers are wonderful, so friendly and welcoming. Their chips — there aren’t words to describe these chips, other then to say they are perfection...as is their guacamole, queso, and BOTH salsas. (Get their chip/dip sampler. Truly. I’ve never felt so passionately about a chip, and we could just drink the salsa.) We’re crazy about their tacos — each one a delicious fusion of Latin & Asian flavors. Their margaritas are also wonderful (no skimping on the spirits here). And they have a nice selection of draft beers. LaLo has quickly moved into our top 3 favorite Cincy restaurants (and we’re notoriously picky)!

We started with the Dip the Chips Sampler. The chips are a bit brittle but otherwise this was very good. Our table split tacos, ceviche and fajitas. All were great. Service was very attentive, helpful and friendly. This will be a regular spot for us.

This was our first visit to LALO. The menu sounded great and the prices were excellent. We ordered two appetizers (zucchini fries and Kim Chi dumplings). Both were excellent. Our entrees were the Mexicain Pad Thai and the Cuban banh-mi Barbacoa. The food was outstanding.

Our waiter was the only server there tonight and he worked his tail off! We were in and out in an hour and he wasn’t shaken or rattled, he ran the place well. He was polite and smiled and did an amazing job. We were very impressed and we’ll be back

The food was very good. The servers were trying, but could not handle the people that were coming in. Appeared that they had speciality house drinks, but there was no drink menu to see them. The restaurant could do very well if they figured out how to manage better
