Lola's is incredible - I had the best seafood meal I've had in my life here. Miso glazed escolar that was just incredible with a cilantro-lime rice. Highly recommend it, the service is awesome and the chef/owner came out to personally tell us about the dishes.

Delicious food and attentive service. The server recommended a salad with Burrata that was not on the menu - be sure to request it. The stuffed chicken breast was absolutely delicious. Also, rave reviews on the beef cheek raviolis.

I already recommended it to my sister and her husband. I truly enjoyed the atmosphere, relaxed but pretty
professional. The service was excellent, the server was knowledgeable and helpful. The food was prepared and presented beautifully. We will return, looking forward to it.
Thanks,

It was very good and we had great service. We booked early and it was nice and quiet. Had the Lumpia and the bao buns. My husband had the scallops and I had the halibut. He said they were the best scallops in town and possibly that he has ever had. I liked that the halibut was nice and light. Highly recommend it!

Went here for Easter Brunch!! This is our 3rd time and it’s always so good. The Filipino Breakfast is the best, but the Shrimp & Grits and Goat Cheese Salad are also excellent. The service is always top notch! Out server was very friendly and accommodating. We love coming here.

This was our first time at Lola'a and we were really impressed. We were early in the evening to there weren't many customers there at that time, but they continued to arrive while we were there. Impressive atmosphere and decor, gray and white. Our waitress was delightful. The duck breast was outstanding, some of the best we've ever had. The presentation was excellent. My wife would like to have the salad dressing recipe. The chef visited with us toward the end of the meal and he was a delightful person. Prices were moderate, in line with the top restaurants in town.
We are recommending Lola's to everybody we can.

The food quality and customer service was excellent. We had a little hiccup with the way one of the steaks was prepared, but the staff was quick to remedy the situation and even comped a dessert afterwards. We will definitely be back and love to have found another little hidden gem in Wichita. Thanks for the great experience.

Lola’s Bistro is what a chef-driven restaurant should be. I can’t believe it took me a year to discover this place, but I’ve been three times now in the past month. What a find.
I like the clean dining room appearance and the good quality glassware on the table. Great first impression. The hostess is always very pleasant and the service is excellent. Servers are not overbearing – just right. They know the menu and the wine list, and their suggestions are always excellent. Always have a smile.
The food. Well, I think the menu is just right and the dishes are clever. Presentation is sublime. I’ve had the burrata salad twice (as a special, not on the menu every night), I’ve had the pork belly bao buns, chicken skewers and chees & meat platter appetizers, and I’ve had the Cheshire pork chops and the Barramundi special. Deb’s had the stuffed chicken breast and the Walu fish special. Everything is really tasty and, again, the presentation shows it was prepared with care and passion.
We’ve had the panna cotta and it is most excellent. But get the cheesecake. I assume Chef Michael uses a water bath – so creamy. It is one of the best desserts we’ve had. Ever.
Bartenders are excellent - cocktails are very well done. When I went last, they had Yamazaki 12 whisky! I did, too. Wine list is like the menu, not too long and something for everyone.
Ambiance is pleasant. You can easily talk at the table when crowded. They have a neat bar area if you don’t want a table. No art on the wall – they put it on your plate.
We have some top tier places to eat in Wichita and Lola’s is now on top of my list.

When we walked in at 6 pm the hostess asked if we had a reservation. We were the first ones there - seemed kind of funny to ask that. And because we were the first ones there...it seems no one was ready for us as it took a very long time to get our drinks and to order food. I've heard people rave about it and the whole experience was just OK.

If you are looking for a great place to take a first date or to have date night this is place! Great service and delicious food. We had the duck and a 6 oz filet. Both were absolutely mouth watering! Everyone who spoke to us was gracious, kind, and our server was very helpful as well as informative with the menu options. Support local businesses and try this place out you won’t regret it!

We were celebrating 2 birthdays and a new job. Waitress was attentive. All 5 in our party selected a different entree. All the plates were delicious. I don’t think any of us had any leftovers!. I look forward to trying my next dish when we return. Love that this fine dining restaurant is locally owned. Give it a try......you won’t be disappointed!

Love Lola's Bisto. The service is a 10+ and the food is as well! I sent my mother and sister there as a surprise and Emily took extra time out to make them feel very special. They have been telling me for days now, how much they loved everything about Lola's. I highly recommend this place!

My group went to Lola’s on the recommendation of a dear friend and fellow foodie. Her referral was spot on. My party of four had the Beef Cheek Ravioli, Duck Breast, Scallops and Pork Chop for entrees; chicken skewers for an app and we also tried two of the deserts. Our server, Bailey, was a very friendly young kid. She was knowledgeable about the food on the menu and seemed to know a little bit about the chef and restaurant in general. Our only complaint (comment) was on the wines. We were interested in two
Possible selections but had to ask what years they were as that was not stated on the wine list. We ultimately switched gears as the years were not what we would have wanted and we ordered a 2013 Silver Oak Cabernet. Price was more than fair for what we ordered and we trusty had a great evening. My guys will go back and you should try it if you are ever in Wichita.

Our first visit to Lola's consisted of a few hits but also overarching misses. When making a reservation I indicated it was my girlfriends birthday. At no point was it mentioned which was a small letdown. OpenTable provides the ability to indicate special occasions which when done right can be the highlight of a meal and a catalyst of customer service. Lola's fell flat in this regard.

Lola's also had a miss with their version of the Mai Tai. Having had them in Hawaii featuring tropical fruit and delicious flavors, Lola's version fell flat on its face. It tasted of pure alcohol with no fruit notes on the palate.

The other loss of the night was their ribeye. It was ordered medium rare and came out dead gray and 30 degrees over temperature. The replacement steak was much more on par but we both felt that the thin steak didn't justify the high price tag.

Luckily all was not lost. The lumpia to start the meal was absolutely amazing as was the goat cheese salad. The duck that I ordered was delicious and the sauce that accompanied the entree was stunning.

We both agreed we might give Lola's another try but it's not on the top of the list nor will it be word of mouth recommended for the time being.
