They were out of all seafood items on the menu. If 'coastal' is part of your name, ensuring you have seafood in stock to serve would be key.

The five of us enjoyed every morsel and moment.

Food is excellent, the octopus and cauliflower were pretty great to experience.

Our server (dagnabbit, I took too long since to remember his name) is such pleasure. The folks who assisted were always spot on as well.

And genuinely, the folks who design and curate what we get to see, are worthy of recognizing.

Ooh, and that smokey margarita, we definitely appreciated two pitchers.

*note: we had a designated driver who deserves kudos for denying his opportunity.

It's great that all this is great. Cuz, whew, prices are steep. For average folk like me, this is a once-in-awhile go-to. And/or worthy of saving up a bit for more frequent joys like Lola's is.

Also worth noting, it's feels at least like, the service crew enjoy the camaraderie of the experience. When patrons feel this kind of comfortable, the folks who manage are talented.

*also note: i'm not related to, or know personally know any one who works for/with Lola's.

Interesting experience - I know it's tough with COVID and want to support local businesses! Took awhile to get drinks (server admitted bar was backed up). Didn't really seem to have a lot of seafood options for being coastal IMO. The lobster enchiladas were really tasty though and def recommend! Maybe a bit overpriced - server was very nice and tried to be attentive (other staff that delivered appetizers didn't include silverware or plates). Overall, decent experience and was glad to get out of the house! Thanks for being open!

I just can't say any of the food was really Great. Guac was the highlight. Cauliflower was good. Main dishes were kinda tasteless. Tuna Ceviche has no flavor. A nice chunks of tuna, but no taste. Deconstructed taco's were mediocre and also had no flavor. Small toppings plate for the taco's, it really didn't come with much. Kinda a meh meal. Has to be better Mexican food somewhere in Denver. Service was great. Margs solid.

Nothing really popped in our order of queso, shrimp ceviche, and chicken enchiladas. The corn tortilla crackers with queso and ceviche likely the culprit in my dissatisfaction.

Went for my birthday. Great atmosphere. Our server Chad was attentive and helpful with dietary restrictions.
Dinner was super delicious and the drinks are tasty.
I didn’t think I could have dessert since I’m gluten and dairy free but he delivered out a dessert without those ingredients. Over the moon happy.

I grew up in Alaska where fresh seafood is abundant, so I’m always hesitant to try seafood in Colorado. I’m so glad I tried some seafood dishes at Lola. The octopus appetizer and steamed mussels were mm mmm mmmm! The type of dishes you think about days later. Great recommendations at the hands of the waitstaff!

We were seated in a little alcove near a window. We had an early dinner reservation at 5:00 p.m., but they hadn't really finished using this alcove for menu prep work, as the paper cutter and menus were still in that area.

We started by ordering a pitcher of the smoky pina margarita. It was the perfect combination of sweet and heat! Unfortunately, when one of the food runners brought it to the table, he only brought two glasses. We told him that we needed two additional glasses, but he never returned. After waiting 5 minutes, one of us went up to the bar and asked for two more glasses. The bartender seemed annoyed that we were approaching the bar and said that she would take care of it. She only brought one glass to the table. So after three attempts, we finally got a fourth glass so that we could all enjoy the drink.

The salsa sampler was good. I enjoyed the cream-based medium heat salsa, while the others in our party enjoyed the hotter salsa made with apricots.

The queso was divine! In addition to chips, it came with freshly grilled bread. We added the chorizo, which I highly recommended! The homemade chips were a little too oily.

I should have gone with my first instinct and ordered the lobster enchiladas like one of our friends did. I tasted a bit of his and the crema verde sauce was exceptional! Instead, to be healthier I ordered a tuna ceviche called aquachile.  Another friend loved his Baja taco board, which was a deconstructed board of fish tacos (cod). Bob thought his chicken enchiladas were just okay. He mentioned that they lacked enough chicken meat.

The atmosphere is "Highlands hipster", and the level of service matches that.  Unfortunately, with fine dining prices we were expecting more.

Dear beloved Lola guest, We pride ourselves on having an informative and upbeat, if not down right jubilant, staff. Where we all know that masks can lead to some miscommunication, it seems our follow through game was completely off. Please reach out to me directly so as to provide a return visit for you and your groups return. We appreciate your feedback, as it makes us all stronger and more skilled as we strive to improve.

Exploring the Denver food scene we were a bit disappointed with the service at Lola’s, there was quite a lag between from when the order was out in the counter(I.e. appetizers and main) to when it made it to the table. Restaurant was not busy on a Tuesday night. Enchiladas were cold.
Hopefully this is a one off.

Service was outstanding, Charlie was wonderful and extremely knowledgeable regarding the menu. And the chef was so understanding about my cilantro dislike - which was so unnecessary, I know it’s annoying. But the tuna ceviche was so bad, what a waste of money.... super bland, no flavor or heat and for “sushi grade” it was weirdly gray. Pineapple margaritas were fabulous, but I will say that the pitcher tasted nothing like the individuals, which was weird. Had an overall good experience, but the menu needs some work.
