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.

Charlie is a rockstar and thanks for the shout out to her, I'll be sure to let her know! Glad we were able to accommodate, we always try our best. Sounds like we have some things to work on and thank you for bringing that to our attention. We'll look into our preparations to see if maybe something is missing or something accidentally got skipped. Please come back and let us know you're in so we can make it a perfect experience for you!

While we have loved coming for happy hour in the past, at least for now Lola has removed food from the happy hour menu. We loved getting tacos a la carte and a couple margaritas, but unfortunately all you can do now is get a $20 taco board off the dinner menu with no mix and match. The shrimp tacos were basically boiled shrimp. They came in a cast iron skillet, but since they weren't cooked in it, there was no good searing. No complimentary chips and salsa even when ordering a meal is another strike. Love the service and atmosphere, but we won't be coming back as there is much better food for the cost in the area.

I literally can't think of one thing bad to say about Lola! This place is so cute & yummy & just the best all around! Alan is often our server & is great. Casey at the bar is the right amount of friendly & makes excellent drinks. The patio has been such a nice option during this crazy covid crap...we feel comfortable temperature wise & the open windows give a sense of ventilation safeness. Try the pozole, guacamole, queso w/chorizo, hash, chicken/waffles, huevos...they're all yummy. As for drinks, our faves are the smokey pina & the blood orange margs.
