Just an ok experience super hip scene which was cool, waited 45 minutes for our table also ok, but was treated exceptionally rudely by one employee. Really unacceptable. Some good was excellent, some average fun place to go if you what a totally in science and spend a lot of money drinks were excellent
Always good food and drinks, but I was disappointed in how they pushed us out and don’t let you sit and enjoy drinks. We had finished our food but were still working on our drink and the waitress brought us our bill without asking if we would like another drink. I get needing to get others in but the whole service felt rushed...
This place is fantastic, but be aware that it is nearly impossible to get a seat without a reservation! plan in advance to come here, I promise it's worth it!
The service I received was excellent and plus my server she was extra perfect great place to enjoy good food
My boyfriend and I had a date night dinner here for the all you can eat tacos. Everything was great, we loved our drinks (oaxacan old fashioned and the broken heart) and we also had a shot of the house tequila which was sooooo smooth! It was a great suggestion from our server Christina who brought out our shots with the cutest presentation ever! She was also very attentive and made sure we enjoyed our dinner.
Came on a Sunday night with friends, and had a great time! The portions were a little bit smaller than we had expected, but the food and the drinks were delicious.
I read reviews that the food was delicious and the service was good. Definitely hit both of those check boxes. I don't know that I would bring a party of more than 4 here, especially without a reservation. But if you can make a reservation and go on an off night it is a great spot. I will be going back there for sure.
I went to Lolita’s after hearing a lot of good things about it. I was disappointed. First of all it was so loud in there my group had to shout to hear each other and we were off in a corner. It’s super dark it’s basically only a little of red and yellow lighting , even going to the women’s bathroom is down a long dark hallway. Drinks and food were a solid ok. I drank the strawberry basil mojito- it was ok. I had the cornbread with jalapeño (not spicy), carnitas tacos, and churros. The carnitas tacos were fine but not at all mind blowing or even delicious. The cornbread was good and the churros were too fat so ended up being doughy- but it did come with a delicious side of passion fruit dip. They give you a complimentary sorbet to “cleanse the palate” which I did not try, chips with 3 different sauces mild medium and hot (the medium was the best and most original thing I tasted all night), and cotton candy and stick on tattoos at the end of your meal. The waitress was attentive and friendly and we were seated promptly (I made reservations-others arriving at the same time told there would be a 45 minute wait). Although we mostly just ordered simple food (tacos and nachos) it was slow to come out and it came out individually so I almost finished my meal when my friend received hers. The meals were pricey for what you received -I mean were talking tacos and nachos. All in all it was ok but I probably won’t go back.
Lolitas was great. I went on a double date with my best friend and her boyfriend . They start out with a grapefruit palet cleanser at every table and 3 different salsas with chips. The food was definitely smaller than expressed by the waitress and a little pricey for the amount of food you actually get. I would recommend getting 2-3 things. You are going to spend quite a bit of money to get full. the atmosphere was cozy and the decor is very unique . The guac is delicious and the tuna tartar is also phenomenal. They ended with a free lime cotton candy with pop rocks. Overall fun and unique experience will go back for a special occasion. Reservation is a must if you don't have 3 hours to spare.
Beautiful interior delicious food great service spent 2 hours there and it flew by definitely suggest the strawberry basil mojito
Can’t get enough of Lolita’s!!!! Food and drinks are amazing. !!!
The service was great and our server was very informative about the types of margaritas to try. The food was exceptional. I am looking forward to going back.
Amazing service. Plates are flavorful, fresh, and great portion sizes. Always recommend this place for any occasion. The decor is amazing, especially the bar style.
All you can eat tacos for $10 on Monday’s! Love this place!
Awesome service. DYNAMITE food. Great scene for date night or girls night out!
Lovely - nothing else to say
All I can say is WOW. The ambiance was incredible, what a great spot!!! The food was more like tapas so we got a bunch of stuff and oh my god was it good. I spent half of the time eating my tacos with my eyes closed because they were SO GOOD. The drinks were sooooooo good man! Especially the margs and the frozen margs and of course the tequila lol. They did complimentary granita topped with house made tequila AND cotton candy and tattoos with our check!!!! The service was immaculate I wish I could remember her name but just incredible, thank you Lolita!!!!
We’ve been to Lolita a few times, every time we love it. Our waitress last night, Natalie M, was by far the best one we’ve ever had there ! Overall great night, looking forward to going back!
Super cool and fun atmosphere - the food is delicious and the decor is amazing. One of my favorite spots in Boston.
The pork carnitas taco are to die for! Margs are great too!
Lolita is definitely a fun night out. From the cool atmosphere to the unexpected surprises including a smoking granita to start the evening (fueled by dry ice and optional complimentary tequila) and a towering cotton candy sprinkled with pop rocks accompanying the bill. Our food was all fantastic, starting with the complimentary chips and three different dipping sauces. We tried the empanadas and the bacon-laced guacamole, both of which were great. We added the chicken thighs and the Carne Asada. Portions were billed as small plates but were more than generous as an entree. For a Wednesday night, the place was buzzing. Will definitely be back!
We had a great time at Lolita. My girlfriend is Mexican and we both really loved the food at Lolita`s.
This was my first time at Lolita Back Bay and it was an amazing experience! I went with a friend and am glad we made reservations, the wait without them on a Sunday was almost 2 hours!! I highly recommend their margaritas, I had the frozen strawberry one myself. The shrimp tacos were awesome! Huge pieces of shrimp and a very delicious combo of sweet and savory with pineapples and sour cream. At the end of the meal, they bring you complementary sour apple cotton candy with pop rocks, so cool! Great date spot and an awesome vibe for a get together with friends. I will be back!
our waitress was excellent! very attentive and kept the chips comin'!
Great food, drinks, and an overall good value especially compared with the other local options. This made for a really fun night out with the girls. Drinks were excellent especially the cucumber margaritas. The guacamole was delicious. Highly recommend!
Both hostesses were rude and standoffish. Several tables were empty (for the entirety of the 2 hours we were there) and we asked to sit at a different table and they refused us. Our waitress was wonderful though!
Lolita's had a lot of special touches that made our night amazing!
Our food was amazing but the server was even better!!!!
Great place for Valentine’s Day! Strawberry basil mojitos and street corn don’t sound like date night dinner, but they were amazing. Loved the tequila granita and pop rocks at the end of the meal!
I was there for the all you can eat taco night with my family visiting from Florida.Great decor & yummy Aguas frescas!
We really enjoyed Lolita's. Margaritas were fantastic. The food was great and prices were reasonable - better than I expected.
Hands down the most outstanding Mexican restaurant I’ve been to in Boston. Highly recommend to all searching for a date night restaurant or somewhere to celebrate a special occasion! The taquitos and steak tacos were amazing!
I was here Saturday night with a party of 10 to celebrate my birthday. Although the food and drinks were great the service was an absolute disaster. When we arrived for our 8:30 reservation we were forced to wait an additional hour. I had made this reservation a full month ahead of time and I was even notified the day of by the restaurant to make sure that I arrive to my reservation on time. When I approached the manager to see what was the hold up he simply said "there is a party that has paid their check but they just aren't moving so it could be an additional 45 minutes we just don't know" (on top of the 1 hour we already waited). I just felt like this situation could have been handled differently and that they should have already had our table reserved and ready for us 10 minutes before arrival. I will definitely think twice before making another reservation here.
Our waiter was absolutely amazing! It was my daughters birthday and we were spending the day in Boston. She had done some research and found this restaurant. He charged the teen girls phones for them and took a picture with them (they may have thought he was attractive). I had mentioned it was her birthday at the beginning and he remembered at the end! Only downfall was truly bringing two picky teens to this restaurant. Not meant for those what are picky or not willing to try new things.
My first visit to Lolita's did not disappoint - great vibe and service and interesting menu that presents Mexican food in more of a tapas context. The Mexican street corn, shrimp, and pork ribs were all superb. The restaurant provides a couple freebies that were nice - home made chips with three different dips and a sorbet that can be infused with tequila at your option. We both ordered a specialized cocktail - a bourbon mash and a spicy cucumber margerita Those who want enchiladas or would like a quiet date, look elsewhere.
We went for taco night and it’s amazing! Great quality and the drinks were delicious. Do wish the beef is less greasy though but it was the best tasing spices wise. The multiple types of sauces and tequila grapefruit ice was unique.
I was really satisfied with our service at Lolita's. Unfortunately I forgot the name of our server, but she was amazing. Another server brought out our dessert and just randomly placed it on the table and walked away (no biggie but its a drastic change from our actual awesome server) and I dont know how, but she caught it from across the room and came over to make sure everything was right and brought us spoons we were missing. Food was great! Wish I could've tasted some other drinks, but we were so full! Coming back of course.
Very very good.
Very unique spot, I’ve never been anywhere like it! If you’re going as a group DEFINITELY order one of the “feasts”, they’re the best value. Will absolutely return soon!
Loved the ambiance of this place! Staff was very nice Bartender was awesome! She made one of the best margaritas I’ve ever had! Love the cotton candy at the end:)
