Casa Lola was recommended by friends. Hotel concierge advised us to skip it. The atmosphere is very nice. Service was good. Our waitress explained every dish on the menu as there was no translation. Our party of five shared 5 appetizers. All were average. 2 out of 5 entrees were barely edible as they both tasted like a block of... More

We love the food especially the service. Our Server JC is so friendly, professional and provided excellent service. My 3 year old son was crying because he is sleepy, I was carrying him and he doesn't want to use the high chair, but JC offered to put two set two empty chairs beside me so I can lay my child...

The place is more famous for it's atmosphere and beautiful restaurant than the food. The food is very expensive for what it is and not nearly as good as the not-so-fancy Ropa Vieja restaurant across the street. Great atmosphere, better than average service.

We decided to try out Casa Lola based on the recommendation of the concierge at the Marriott. We had asked for an authentic restaurant that could comfortably accommodate our group of twelve. To be honest, I have no idea whether or not the food was authentic or representative of local culture, but the one thing I am certain of is... More

If you are looking for a great Puertorrican place to eat Lola is the place. You can ask to start a great mojito with a great sampler to share of local appetizers. For main entrees you can select any of them and really you will love them. I usually love the fish. The place is really nice and the staff... More

We were a party of 6 on a business dinner. The surroundings and neighborhood (El Condado) are the best in Puerto Rico, modern but very safe and quite, only matched by some spots in Viejo San Juan (the oldest part of the city). The restaurant nice in a classic spanish-style two-story mansion. Inside is very welcoming and well kept, appropiate... More

We had an excellent server who really tried to do her best, but it took about an hour to receive our dinners. Our appetizer was comp'd, which was nice. Overall, delicious restaurant. Sesame calamari were uniquely tasty.

The taxi driver from the airport recommended Casa Lola to us for some authentic food while on vacation. Needless to say, everything we ordered was extraordinary. We ordered all appetizers (empanadillas, crispy rolls with beef, chorizo and creamed spinach) and loved everything. Even the house coconut bread was incredible. Oscar was our server and was Excellent - very attentive and... More
