Extremely nice staff. Tasty margaritas. Chips and salsa sampler was very good. We sat on the porch area which was lovely. Dinner entrees we’re good but not great. We still enjoyed our evening and would definitely go back.

Food overall was very flavorful but our waitress never came back to our table after our food was served. Someone else ended up helping us which I thought was not very good service

We showed up 45 minutes early to our reservation and they graciously sat us early, which was greatly appreciated! The entire ambiance is so lovely and we were able to sit at a high-top on their covered patio area. Everything we had was delicious from their drink of the day to the appetizers and through the entrees. Didn't stay for dessert this time but will have to save room for it the next time we stop by. Great service as well. Our server was constantly mindful of our water glasses and food came out so quickly!

What a lovely place to end the week. Service is OUTSTANDING. Party of five, one of which had never been there. She loved it. She’s SFO food sophisticate. She said if she lived down the street, she’d done there everyday! We love you Lola!

Enjoyed a little culinary travel with my mom who was visiting after many months at home during the pandemic. Lola never disappoints. We enjoyed everything but the grilled octopus was a particular favorite.

I have been to Lola many times, even in the past few months during the pandemic. This visit our service was so horrible I really don’t think I’ll go back. I know a lot of places are struggling with staff right now but the restaurant was basically empty and our server was nonexistent. There really is no excuse.

Always impressed with Lola’s! Amazing food and friendly service. Can get a bit pricey but it is so good it is worth it. Music is a bit loud for conversations but besides that— just love!

The staff was very nice and helpful. Food was good. Great happy hour deals.

The Juan Vega should be on the regular menu because it’s so delicious! The chips could be warmer and maybe less oily. Otherwise we were very impressed with everything we ordered!

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!

Delicious as always! Super sad they got rid of the kale chips though, they were the best! Hoping for a better side option to come soon for people who can’t have beans and rice. I got a side salad and it was very boring. Phillip gave us great service and the sangria is still the best there is!

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!
