    We booked this reservation on February 9th. We show up at February 27 because it’s still confirmed. We are told that they closed the restaurant due to an event they were hosting. I was not given any form of communication that the restaurant would be closed that day. All I was told was “sorry”. Unprofessional.

    Food was outstanding! The staff recognized our Valentines/anniversary with a glass of champagne. We noticed how the volume level was low - very unusual nowadays which allowed us to have a nice conversation and enjoy our meal. It was a great way to lead into a movie at Film Streams.

    New Year's Eve At Lola's is something special. This was the second year our group of 4 friends had dinner here. The ambiance is soft lighting & music featuring standards from the past. They always have a special menu to accompany their regular offerings. The service was attentive but not pushy which I appreciate. Three of us opted for the special beef shank & one had the salmon special. We also love their house made bread plate. The beef shank was something I had not seen on a menu before. It was accompanied by mash potatoes, green beans & a beef jus. All three of us loved the fall apart texture of the beef shank which surprisingly was boneless. Our other guest also enjoyed his salmon. We closed out the meal with some gelato & a beautiful pear/ raspberry cake. It was a wonderful relaxing evening of delicious food & being able to converse with each other without the need to raise our voices. Lola's in the evening is somewhere special.

    I took my granddaughter to dinner before we went to see "A Christmas Carol" at the Playhouse. Chanelle was our server and was so very kind and attentive. The food is always delicious--everything tastes homemade. I always start with the soup of the day, and it never fails to satisfy! We shared a half-charcuterie board to begin, then I had the pasta while my granddaughter had the Spanish tortilla, which was more of a potato/egg casserole. She loved it, and brought leftovers home! They have a nice wine list with several interesting wines by the glass. We will definitely be back!

    We were heading to a movie at film-streams. We got there early to insure we had enough time to eat. The server asked us if we were attending a movie so the kitchen could accommodate us. We had the very tasty pumpkin ginger soup, cauliflower steak on a carrot purée and the haloumi Salad. All tasty. Lots of good sourdough bread some served in the beginning with butter and then accompanying the soup (a garlic rosemary focaccia. ) Service and food were very good. A great start to the evening.

    Lola's was a perfect New Year's Eve spot. There were interesting specials in addition to the dinner menu. We had the smoke trout appetizer In addition to their hummus. They also bring plates of their wonderful bread to the table. Three of our group started with the simple salad. Beautiful greens, watermelon radishes & pine nuts dressed with a lemon vinaigrette. For entrees we chose the roast chicken & the steak au poivre. It end this delicious meal we all shared the panettone bread pudding. It was a wonderful evening with great backgound music that didn't interfere with conversation among friends.

    I love Lola’s and highly recommend for breakfast and brunch. However, for my birthday dinner I was expecting a little more ambiance and better food. The options are really attractive and I think could be really good, but was disappointed in the portion size of my steak meal and half of a small potato. The appetizers were great. Wish there was more veggies with the hummus. Besides that, the bartender was great and super friendly! I think it was our waitresses first week, she seemed a little timid. I wish I wasn’t disappointed in the dinner selection.

    Lola's is convenient pre-show, on the way to the movies (right there!) or to the Omaha Playhouse... and the food is our kind of food: fresh, vegetarian options, and flavorful. Wines "on tap" are not expensive. It seemed that unlike many restaurants they have no problem with having enough friendly waitstaff. Service was great. Traffic on Dodge is pretty close if sitting at a front window table... so I will choose to sit elsewhere. "Problem" solved! This is a place that you can go "just because you are hungry." No need for a special occasion!

    It’s a cute place, but the food, which always sounds like it will be great, is often a little disappointing. And the service on this occasion was really slow—for a cold burrata appetizer with some pre-roasted tomatoes on it and some cold focaccia we waited 30 minutes. Entrees were a little quicker, but still slow. Not great either.

    We had a lovely and delicious dinner before we caught a late movie. The cocktails were great, the croque monsieur was rich and wonderful, and the pine nut tarte was beautiful looking and great tasting! I also love coming here for a cup of coffee and a pastry in the morning. You cannot go wrong with anything you order here.

    Lola’s is wonderful any hour of the day. They bake their own amazing pastries and bread, but if you are having breakfast the eggs are divine. A meat and cheese board is perfection with honey and the presentation is beautiful. Their kale and jalapeño salad is a favorite. Wines and beer too, all connected to a great little movie theater!
