    Great restaurant. Nice both inside and outdoors. The food is authentically Spanish. Lots of great spices and lots of garlic! Loved every bite!

    We had to change our reservation VERY late in the day - from 2 to 6! Cafe Nola was very accommodating. Neighborhood is adorable, restaurant itself very charming, food absolutely delicious and George our waiter fantastic. A perfect evening.

    The food was mostly good, I wasn't a fan of the special tapas for the day, but I don't believe the food merited the cost. My wife and I were freezing in the restaurant because we were seated under the vents they have no way of blocking the vents in the dining room, and this becomes an issue when it's cold outside and the AC is still running inside. The experience and food just does not merit spending $100+ dollars, there are dozens of other restaurants that are the same price and way better dining experience and quality.

    My wife and I haven’t been to Lola’s for 9 years. We visited on a weekend trip. Amazing food. Gotta get the Sangria and Paella at a minimum! The Chevice was very fresh and tasty. Soup is incredible. What needs focus? The little things. Attention to detail (attentive service, clean glasses/silverware). My wife and I were seated for about 10 minutes before being acknowledged. No worries I thought - prob just busy, but it does feels nice to be welcomed and acknowledged. We’re not sure if we’ll come back yet - if we do, hoping the service is a bit better. This is a very unique/special establishment.

    We live in the neighborhood and booked an outdoor reservation for two. We walked from our home to the restaurant. While waiting at the host stand a walk up of two was seated outside. They did not have a reservation. When we checked-in the host informed us they had no outside seating available and would need to be seated inside. I shared we would be willing to wait on our outside reserved table. He shared we had booked standard and not outside. I showed him the reservation and that it did indeed show outside. He blamed OpenTable and said the restaurant did not allow outside reservations. It was awkward and not much hospitality. We decided to eat somewhere else and it will be some time before we give LOLA another try. It was a very disappointing experience. Kindness, hospitality and ownership of the problem would have gone far.

    I rarely give 5 stars. 4 stars is good and we’re going back 3 stars is good and not going back 2 stars not good
