Service was outstanding, however, like most of these newer restaurants catering to the pocketbooks of transplant millenials, the food was extremely boring. The seafood appetizers were room temperature, the $22 build your own taco trays were extremely sad as well as being twice as expensive as they should be. Save yourself the hassle of parking in LoHi and go somewhere else.

My friend and I met for dinner this past very rainy Tuesday night. We were sat right away. The restaurant practices safe Covid protocols including temperature taking, distanced tables, and mask wearing. The food was outstanding! My friend has a lot of allergy issues and the server was very informative and thoughtful. She was actually able to find a few selections that worked well. I had the baja tacos on the server's recommendations and they were very good. The atmosphere was fun and lively-I think people were happy to be out! Our server was exceptional. I would highly recommend Lola's for a fun, trendy Mexican experience.

Our waitress, Elizabeth, was great! We sat at a little two-top and proceeded to order oysters, kale salad, acorn squash, and the salsa apps. Rather than pile all the apps on at once like some places do, she spaced them out so our table wouldn’t be jam-packed.

It was sat 10 am reservation. I love this place and my date had never been. We were seated on the indoor patio high tops. All was good as usual except our waitress seemed irritated by dishes. She kept dumping them very loudly into the bin. Every single time. It was so annoying. She could have been much more gentle with them. It was super distracting. I think she kept finding dirty plates in a stack of clean ones so she would almost throw them down into the bin... so odd. Normally I don’t complain about things like this but it kept happening throughout our 90 mins there. I was relieved to go outside for calmer, quieter energy and noise level.
I’ll be back as I love this place. Just hope she is happier next time!

Our group of 3 ate dinner here on a Monday evening. We had reservations. The service was fast and cheerful and the food was excellent, though it was not quite as hot as I would like. The dining room and bathrooms appeared to be clean. We were asked a few health questions (exposure to covid, do we have a temperature) upon entering the restaurant. The noise level was good because only half the restaurant was full. I would go back there.

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.
