    Food at Lolinda was amazing! I went with 4 other friends for a birthday dinner which was perfect. We ordered the pan de queso, pork belly, trumpet mushrooms, papas, shishito peppers, shrimp skewers, and the ribeye. This was the perfect amount of food for our group and the food was delicious! However the service was terrible. Our server was extremely rude and was rushing us out the door the entire time which made for a less than stellar experience.

    Gorgeous interior. We were seated upstairs away from people after the host explained that they didn't have outdoor tables, which was nice. The food and drink was outstanding, really enjoyed my vesper martini, the bone marrow, and the ojo de bife especially. Our waitress made great suggestions and accommodations, and brought us a complementary chocolate cake with candle for my son's birthday. We also share the cookies and milk, which were delicious.

    We had an excellent dinner at Lolinda. Service was top notch and the plates came out quickly. Although a nice selection of family style dishes, size wise they were perfrct for our family of 3. Parking can be challenging, with adjacent streets closed off for slow streets.

    I have a lot of allergies to food. I gave our waiter my list of food allergies. I had only 2 choices left on menu. I still got reactions from the little I was able to order. Noise level was extreme. Way too dark inside to see menu. Won't be returning.

    Delicioso! Lolinda is an awesome and very underrated steakhouse. The menu is diverse and expansive, you will definitely find something amazing on there. We had the brussel sprout salad, the beef empanadas, the crispy pork belly for appetizers--all very delectable and tasty. For the mains we went with the pork chop and the filet mignon, which were both STELLAR. We were both very pleased and happy with our choices. Not to mention the service we received was excellent. Carlos really took care of us! Shoutout to him and the entire staff for making my birthday dinner a very memorable celebration. 5 out of 5, highly recommend!

    One of the best meals in years. Our rib eye was perfect. The yucca fries exceptional. Loved the broccolini. Bread was very nice and tomato on the plate a nice edition. We thought the cocktails, wine and a Manhattan were suburb. Dessert, the chocolate and the pumpkin cake were pretty good if just ok. Service was above average, friendly, sweet and professional. Little bit of a wait with the Maitre'd. But overall, we will be back again and again...!!! Thank you, wonderful evening.

    Beautiful restaurant with an excellent bar menu, extensive menu of Argentinian fusion dishes and the requisite perfect chimichurri. Service was responsive and friendly. Steaks were cooked exactly as ordered. Dessert of cookies and milkshake were the biggest disappointment.

    If you like oily food that you can’t see, this place is for you! The restaurant is so dark that you can’t even read your menu. Every table around us, including ourselves, had to turn on the flashlight on their phone to read the menu. You literally could not see your food on the plates. The food was fine. Nothing amazing about it. But everything was cooked in so much oil that it was quite literally dripping. Every dish was covered in cooking oil. Particularly the potatoes, there was about 2 tablespoons of pure oil in the bottom of the bowl. I love food cooked and butter and cooking oil, but I don’t want my food to be drowning. The prices aren’t bad all in all. About $100 per person for four people. But the place is so dark inside so you can’t even see the food that you were eating, so honestly, I would not go back here..

    I pointed out a calculation error that appears to be imbedded in the bill on their handheld device resulting in overcharging the stated 5% SFM. Note that 5% of $146 (the true subtotal) is $7.30, not $7.93. All I asked for was an explaination. The manager on duty promised to email me with an explanation. I waited 10 days and have heard nothing. I don’t like to be systematically cheated regardless of amount. We will not be going back!
