This was our chest time at Lola. We're already planning to go back! My scallop dinner was delicious & the right volume of food. My husband had the pastor tacos. He said it was fine. The tomato-pinapple salsa was an odd combo to him. Queso was yummy. The manage habanero-tequila drink special was a hit!

My boyfriend had been dreaming of the chicken and waffles at Lola's so it was a no Brainer to choose Lola's for his birthday brunch. Lola's made his birthday so special. They brought him a shot of a rare mezcal tequila with an in house made juice back and a grasshopper. So much fun and so delicious!

The food was so good! Lighter than expected as the plates aren’t overly large but good enough portions. Definitely not your every day Mexican spot (much nicer and won’t hit that cheap Mexican craving) but amazing for higher end Mexican food! We will go back, no doubt.

The food was good not great. The mussels were really salty and the octopus was chewy. The service was also extremely slow, even though the restaurant wasn’t full. It was 12 minutes before anyone acknowledged us and brought water. Lola used to be really good, but lately quality and service have gone down.

love this place... drinks are out of this world. Sauces/Salsas from the heavens. Wish brunch menu had a salad on there also wish there were veggie tacos... but these are vegan people problems. Still one of my go-to spots. Yay Lola!

Enjoyable meal. Margaritas prepared well. Service was excellent. Food was very good. One negative, music very loud and required everyone to raise their voice to be heard in dinner conversation. Management needs to decide if they are a bar that happens to serve food (loud rock music) or a restaurant that offers liquor (dinner music played at moderate levels to encourage conversation among guests).

Good food, The menu and restaurant layout changed a bit from the last times we were there which was a couple of years. Seems to be more of a casual atmosphere than previous. We did miss the table side guacamole, but it was still tasty. Would come back anytime.

Great food and service. We went for brunch, the open kitchen is so we'll organized and putting out delicious food! Drinks were boozy but balanced. Lots of tequila choices. If you want to sit on the "patio" you have to choose a high top or call them, but no big deal, we still had a great family brunch.

We've been a few times and always enjoy. This was our first brunch. The only problem was the Huevos Rancheros. The tortillas were unable to be cut, even with a steak knife, and were tough and unpleasant to chew. The server brought fresh tortillas, so I ended up making tacos. I don't recommend this dish, but everything else was super - including the service.

Tortilla chips are more like tostadas and were very hard and chewy. Brunch guacamole had no flavor or spice. There was seasoning on the side of bowl, but it wasn't very flavorful either. We felt rushed because the hostess informed us there was another party scheduled at our table an hour and a half later. I made a reservation and requested a high chair, but when I arrived the hostess said there may not be any high chairs left. Food and drinks took a while to come out, but it was father's day so I expected that. Overall, I didn't think the food had much seasoning or spice which was unfortunate.

Had a lovely experience, was very well taken care of by our server and the spicy piña marg was so yummy. One thing, I don’t think the whole tostadas as chips really works, it was kind of awkward to have to break them apart and it made a mess on the table. Consider cutting them up like normal totopos.

It was amazing being able to come in without masks and the servers not having to wear anymore was amazing! You could tell everyone was so excited to be out and feel like a little normalcy again. Our server was lovely, we had a great time. And we changed our reservation twice to keep adding ppl, so thank you for making that easy!

This is our second time at Lola this year, both for birthday celebrations. Our first time was outstanding, this one was equally as good. The food is exceptional and the service even better. Our server was Charli, who was working with a server in training. Both were attentive, knowledgeable and super friendly. The food and drinks were amazing, I think the jalapeno margaritas are the best in town. I recommend ordering a pitcher. All our meals were excellent, we had pozole to start, which we all loved. I had the ahi tostada and the others had taco platters, all wonderful. Overall it's a fun, vibrant place with great food and really friendly staff who make you feel special. What more could you ask for on your birthday? We'll be back.

came with a friend — love that the mimosas are $6. service was great, but portion (french toast) was a little small (1 slice) and the amount charged ($14) is different than the menu price ($12).

my friend got steak tacos, they came out wrong at first but that was fixed quickly, which was appreciated. a little heavy on the salt, and only difficult to put together because we were on a pretty small table.
