The waiter was great. He made many recommendations and also brought out his favorite dessert for us. We did not have a reservation, but they were able to find a table for us in a separate from which was very nice. The crab cake appetizers was delicious and so was the pineapple rice I had with my chicken...

The food at Casa Lola was very good, but the wait time was a bit long. The hostess at the restaurant didn't quite know how long it would be to sit our party of 9 so I thought that was a bit odd to begin with. From that aspect, maybe a bit more training would help the staff to not... More

Great service and great authentic Caribbean and Puerto Rican dishes. We were their our first night of the trip and went back on our last night. Although the main courses are great if you can only go once I suggest getting a combination of the appetizers and be sure to get the crab cakes. Also remember you are on the... More

We had dinner at Casa Lola. The wine list was pretty good but slightly overpriced. We had the beef empanadilla which was well presented and we both enjoyed it. My spouse had mahi mahi as an entree. She said it was the best she had ever had. I had a swordfish chop which was melt in your mouth good. my... More

I brought several colleagues here for dinner and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals. This was my second time here and my first was better. One of my colleagues had a fly in his cup. The mahi appeared to be a much smaller portion than i had before, our bread came to the table with food (i think our server forgot).... More

As a vegetarian, I was getting tired of subsisting on side salads and tostones...Lola's had some great vegetarian options with actual vegetables! We went there twice in our short trip. They have a good wine list, the staff is very friendly, and the atmosphere is fun.

We were told to go here while visiting for an authentic Puerto Rican food experience. It was so phenomenal! We had the paella, the caribbean mofongo and seafood mofongo which were all amazing! We argued on whose food was better! Also, try the red sangria. Oh so fabulous! Make sure you stop there on your next trip! It's so worth... More

We were looking for a steak and/ or seafood restaurant. The concierge at the Caribe recommended Casa Lola and we called and made reservations for 6 people at 8:00. Arrived at the restaurant and we were promptly seated. Discovered that 2 members of our party had been here a couple of years ago and loved it then. Service was fast... More
