    We go to Lola very often. So often that we know all of the chefs and the waitstaff by name. Lenny and Jose are very inventive, so we order the specials all the time. Marissa, the manager, is very friendly and knowledgeable. Chelsea and Lauren are a delight. We feel at home whenever we are there because they treat us like family.

    TLDR: Phenomenal experience! I’ve been on open table since it was founded but this is the first time I’ve written a review. Lauren, our waitress was incredibly professional, personable and friendly. She went the extra mile to ensure that we were happy and satisfied. We started with Lola’s version of a Manhattan, made with house made bitters and these delicious drinks set the stage for the remainder of the evening. The food was beyond excellent. We had the foie gras appetizer which was seared perfectly and served with a sauce that was perfectly paired to it. We also shared a fatoush salad that was terrific on its own and a great compliment with the foie gras. Next we shared the charred octopus and the babaganoush. The octopus was succulent and delicious with the hummus it was served on while the babaganoush was perfectly smoky and paired well with the zatar pita that it came with. We shared the duck breast main course which was every bit as fabulous as all the other food. Turns out the owner of the restaurant has a farm in the Hudson Valley that produces much of what’s served at the restaurant such as the foie gras, duck, chicken, etc and you can taste the difference when the quality can be controlled from the farm to the table. We can’t wait to back.

    Found was incredible! Dishes we had never had. Feta fondue with marmalade and almonds! Terrific bread. A mushroom delight on a phyllo crust. Wonderful and attentive service. Person who served us was engaging, thoughtful and knowledgeable. In town for a wedding. Wish we could take Lola home with us.

    My daughter and her boyfriend came to visit from Portugal and we wanted our dinner to be a special event. Five of us (3 generations!) set out to celebrate. Lola Restaurant made it special in every way! Our waitress was such a wonderful help. We were looking to start with a sweet cocktail, and she invented a fantastic drink with peach schnapps (it reminded us of the apricot cocktails we used to get years ago in Manhattan). We started with hummus with both pita and cucumber slices to scoop it up, as well as the special appetizer of grilled watermelon with grilled cheese....amazing! The five of us shared branzino, lamb, mushroom pizza and duck salami pizza, plus extra sides of brussel sprouts and lemon pureed potato. Heavenly! Especially with our Pinot Grigio. For dessert, we feasted on a halvah parfait, cheesecake, and a chocolate "bomb"-like dessert. We wished that they had cappuccino (decaf, even) but they do not and it is the only thing we missed. All in all, a genuine pleasure!!

    I’ll start with the good…then a small nitpick, and then I’ll end with the good. The service was fantastic. Easy going, knowledgeable, friendly, attentive. Just on point. The food was outstanding. So many flavors packed into each bite. Sort of tapas style Mediterranean, but plates not so small to leave you hungry. But so tasty and slightly unusual, in a good way…one of the best meals on Long Island, and one of the best meals in general in a long while. The ambience was just slightly off upon entering the restaurant. I quickly judge a place when I walk in. I could not smell food being cooked and there was a faint unpleasant odor. I believe it may have been the bar or something. I almost considered leaving upon entering, but it wasn’t such a bad smell to force me to take action, but I did notice it. But anyway, I’m glad I stayed because the food and service was beyond fantastic. I’d definitely recommend, and I’ll definitely go back again.

    I took my sister to Lola for her birthday on Saturday night and it was really a wonderful experience. The ambiance was great, noise level low and the staff were outstanding! Our waitress was patient, lively and really a nice addition to our night! She provided all the explanations and recommendations when we asked and everything we tried was excellent. The staff provided my sister with a wonderful Halva dessert with a candle and sand Happy Birthday! I couldn't have asked for a better dinner! Thank you!

    The overall experience is great! The food is very creative and delicious. It is our second time dining at Lola's, and we remembered the Baked Alaska dessert which is just amazing and one of the attraction points for our return. Branzino, lamb, and chicken tajin were delicious, and roasted brussel sprouts are really good. I would recommend it! Since we ordered 3 apps, 3 main, 4 drinks, 5 teas/ coffees, and dessert, the bill was substantial. But it makes it a special dining experience!

    Food is delicious. Service from waitress was pleasant but she could’ve been more attentive. We could’ve ordered a few more drinks but the waitress was not to be found. Something happened and I have to say management did but handle it well at all so they probably need a better “manager on site.” To be fair for the review, the food is worth it so give it a try but personally I am hesitate to visit again because of what happened (not that they care or need my business).
