Lolita Back Bay Ratings and Reviews
Lolita’s never disappoints. Last night, one of my bestest friends was visiting home and had never been to Lolita’s before. She really loved it! The drinks were great as always, the food was phenomenal, and our waitress was so lovely! Lolita Cocina will always be one of my faves.
We arrived promptly at 8 o'clock for a reservation. We were seated immediately which was great since we heard there was a 90 minute wait.
Service was awesome. She saw to everything we needed and anticipated refills on drinks and chips. This is a pretty cool and hip place.
I was so impressed by Lolita. This was the best Mexican food I have had. Delicious, bold flavors and lots of fresh lime and grapefruit in several of the dishes. We ordered the guacamole for the table, which was a standout. I ordered the charred green bean salad and the ceviche. Will definitely return!
I've tried this place more than once, the place might be cool for drinks, but the food is laughable and I'm over it. Tiny, Tiny, Tiny plates! I mean, the flavor is on point, sure, but it's just enough to make you hungry and then you're done. The plate sizes are almost a practical joke! Honestly, if you actually want to eat a meal, this is not the place. Drinks in a dark underground cavern? Sure, but that's it.
The food is to die for. The beginning shot of tequila on shaved ice, the cotton candy and temp tattoos at the end make you really feel like your getting your money's worth. They put a lot into the ambience, and while they aren't completely accessible they accommodated my request for comfortable seating because of my disability. Highlights were mahi mahi tacos, scallops, lobster quacamole, and cornbread. Every drink we had was good, but mojito was my fave. My partner and I were splitting an espresso martini and they even split it into seperate glasses. It was really the little things that's make this place so so special. Can't wait to go again!
We went to celebrate our daughter's 21st birthday. We could NOT have chosen a better location. The food was creative and fabulous! When we first sat down, the waitress brought over some granita with a generous shot of tequila poured over it. It was beautiful and delicious. We enjoyed handcrafted cocktails, delicious cornbread with garlic butter, and amazing entrees. We ended the night with dessert, which was incredible. We will return, and will also recommend to anyone and everyone who needs an idea for a great night out!
Service was amazing. Tapas style. Gaelic shrimp tacos, hot chicken taco, emanadas and carne asada. All was delicious. BlackBerry Sangria was definitely one of the best I’ve had. Cuatro leches cake and churros of course! Complimentary cotton candy was just the icing on the cake! Traveled from Western Mass and will definitely make the trip again soon!
Sooo good! Make sure you make a reservation if you're here for lunch/ dinner/ late night menu because the line is usually very long on the weekends! Ambiance is great, margaritas were delicious, and the food was absolutely amazing - especially recommend the pork carnitas tacos and the chicken quesadillas, as well as any of the guacamole options!
I thought the bean salad was delicious as were the cauliflower tacos (although I had to cut the pieces of cauliflower into smaller ones in order to hold them in the tortilla- but delicious!)
Chips stayed warm for a long time and all salsas that came with chips were a treat!
A favorite for my wife and I. It’s a young crowd and we love it, even though we are in our sixties. The atmosphere is great and the food is excellent. We especially like the grilled corn and pork ribs. The palate cleanser and cotton candy are a fun touch. Also enjoy the new tequila shot at the table presentation. We come to Boston once a year and always reserve a table at Lolita’s.
From the complementary granita palette-cleanser to the complementary cotton candy ending
everything was delicious. The tomatillo-cilantro salsa was the best green salsa I have ever had.
The poblano red salsa was just as good! I enjoyed it all. I will definitely return the next time I am in Boston. Get a reservation early!
