Lolita Back Bay
Lolita is a bustling neighborhood cantina serving playfully authentic interpretations of traditional Mexican cuisine. The dramatic space is dark and rustic, loud with laughter and intimately lit by Murano glass chandeliers, custom stained glass and flickering candles. Bold colors, luxurious leather, graffiti art and a ceiling adorned with skulls are set against an elegant venetian backdrop. House-made flour tortillas wrap flavorful tacos and hand-crafted margaritas grace an elegant, Mexican-crafted bar. The vibrant and youthful ambiance is sexy, seductive and tailored for a night of rebellion and all out revelry.
Great dining experience.
This is third time at Lolitas due to business project since December. Food is very tasty and flavorful, but you just don't get much for the money. Two street tacos for $16! And the cotton candy free "dessert" is fun the first time, but of little value.
Such a cool experience, the food is small plates with a modern take on Mexican and overall very good! Wish the plates were a tad bit bigger for the price but great experience.
Great food, good service and cotton candy to top it all off. How can you go wrong?
Great food and service!
Good food, good environment and great place to catch up. A bit hard to see the menu because of the lighting but you have your phone for a reason : )
Delicious food, great atmosphere. Very loud but excellent service.
Second time going with my significant other because we had such a great time the first time. This time was even better! The waiter was amazing and knowledgeable about menu choices. I am vegan and he when I asked if my cauliflower tacos could be made vegan he immediately said “of course”. When he brought the dinner menu he also told me which was vegan friendly. He had a great personality and was very attentive. Our waitress the first time was good however she was not as knowledgeable.
The ambience is amazing along with the decor. It is a jumping place that is great for and age. Great for a date or anniversary, a late group of friends or a family. It is slightly noisy but that is just the scenery. The cotton candy is such a great touch at the end! We absolutely love this place and will keep coming back!
Food was very good, the portions are just small
Everything about this restaurant was incredible. Food, service, ambiance were all A+. Couldn’t recommend this place more!!!
The food and margaritas where amazing!!
What a find in Boston! Definitely add Lolita Back Bay to your must try dining list! We recommend sharing everything so you can try the wonderful blend of flavors of their small plate offerings.
We chose the steak tacos first. These soft tacos were packed with tender, juicy, perfectly cooked sirloin tips, (in fact they were so tender we never would have guessed it was sirloin) topped with thin, crispy onion strips. Next we tried the pork carnitas nachos, WOW what a flavor blast! Shredded pork and cojita cheese topped with mandoline sliced jalapeños and radishes. Don’t forget to try the Lolita Margarita too! Lolita is a must do eatery in Back Bay!
Great food / fun atmosphere / service was a bit slow, but friendly
Host was dismissive.
Our waiter was wonderful but did wait a lot time to check in on us, we were left waiting to for the waiter to come by in order to ask for the check. Otherwise an amazing experience and delicious food/drinks
Went for an early dinner with the kids - daughter has an egg and tree nut allergy. Waiter was so patient and checked with the kitchen for all of the items we ordered. The street corn and bourbon smash were my favorite.
It was good!! But been there on a outstanding service, i didnt get that this time!
It was my birthday
Really great time!
Host would not seat me for a 2-person reservation until the second person in my party arrived. The table is the same size for 1 versus 2 people, and it would have been great to wait while having a drink and some appetizers rather than awkwardly standing by the door. It seems the same “all parties must be present prior to being seated” does not apply to larger groups, which is ridiculous.
Very accommodating to vegan, always. Sultry vibe and delicious food!
🔥🔥🔥 Amazing food and atmosphere. Already making another reservation
Excellent place to hang out with friends and grab a bite, of take your date. The food is great and prices reasonable. Out of ordinary atmosphere.
This place Never disappoints!! One of my favorite restaurants to eat at. The food is absolutely delicious
Food cabe better. Too overated for food or drinks quality!
People serving you are not always nice!
Great spot! Very trendy!
Went out to celebrate a friend’s birthday. Everything was exceptionally perfect. Taylor is definitely our favorite person there however the whole team is friendly and attentive. I wish I could share photos but we were too busy enjoying ourselves.
What a fun dining experience! Definitely make a reservation so you can get table service instead of just eating at the bar, since there are fun "extras" at the table. Would recommend the guac trio, and the street corn. You can't go wrong with any item on the menu!
It was our first time and we loved it & we can’t wait to go back
brought out the wrong food not once but twice... very frustrating experience
Great Drinks!!! Good place to hang out with friends!
Good atmosphere for a date
Love this place. It was my second time here. Small plates. Enough for all to share. I can’t wait to go back.
Great food, great service and great atmosphere. A little gem in Back Bay.
As a Texan I was a bit leery of a Mexican restaurant in Boston. Let's face it, Mexican and Boston are not synonymous. Austin maybe, but not Boston. Surprise, surprise, and the good kind. Although I'd say the food menu is more Mexican inspired than Mexican (which is fine, it's too cold for Mexican), the drinks menu is authentic, and this is at least as good a place to drink as eat.
I'll be back...
This was a wonderful restaurant. One of the highlights of my day trip to Boston. It was very unique, without compromising quality. The complementary tequila pallet cleanser before the meal and the cotton candy afterward were also a nice touch. The street corn appetizer was outstanding too. I’m so happy we gave it a try!
amazing amazing amazing. obsessed. will definitely come back!! from the food to the ambiance. 10/10.
Yummy all you can eat Monday special!
Literally the best Mexican food I’ve had in a while! Each dish was so amazing. Try the chicken quesadilla... nothing compares! Service was exceptional and the server was great at checking in with us and making sure our waters were filled. And the surprise cotton candy at the end was a great treat. Must try when in back bay.
One of my favorite restaurants, went there to celebrate my bfs birthday and it was exactly what we wanted. Food is amazingg and the service is great too. Love the cotton candy finish!
So a few friends and I celebrated my 25th birthday here at Lolita’s. The aesthetic was mesmerizing, the food was delicious, and the staff were so sweet. I really enjoyed myself and I know my friends felt the same way. I’ll def be going back in the future not just for special occasions but also for evening dining. Thanks again!
Our server was absolutely phenomenal. Food was okay. Margaritas were phenomenal.
