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!

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!

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!

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!
