My husband is a huge Michael Symon fan, so I booked a reservation here as part of his birthday. The menu was eclectic and everything was absolutely amazing. No salt on the table because you don't need any! Our reservations were for 7:30 and we were seated promptly. Service was great. The only reason it isn't getting a 5 out... More

On my 65th birthday, and in Cleveland to see Cuyahoga national park, decided to have a bday dinner at Lolita. Michael Symon's is one of my faves on the Food Channel, so expectations were high. Sorrowfully, unmet expectations! We ordered the recommended appetizers of pig tails and ears and bone marrow with morel mushrooms. The ear cartilage was like chewing... More

I have always wanted to try this place out, finally got the chance, what a huge disappointment. I met a friend for happy hour, when we walked in we were not greeted at all by hostess. She just looked at us. I had to tell her how many, no smile, no hello, just do you have reservation. We did not,... More

Girlfriends and I love sharing food. The four of us ordered three appetizers and three entrees to share. We ordered the Prosciutto, the crispy pork rinds and the charred eggplant dip. All three we great but we LOVED the eggplant dip. So much so that we tried it on almost everything we could dip in it. One of our entrees... More

For a Micheal Symon resturant I was disappointed in mostly the service, the food was overpriced and just "ok". We sat at the bar due to no reservations which is fine but they allowed a "jerk" to squeeze in where there was no room and stand to eat! The bartender wasn't the friendliest and overall the service was very average... More

Everything we ordered was outstanding. Eggplant dip was spicy, bone marrow with crusty toast, smoked prosciutto board with pickled fennel, and the pork chop for two was tender and had marvelous flavor throughout.

We were in Cleveland for the first time as our son was visiting John Carroll University. Had no idea where to go for dinner so looked to Trip Advisor for some help. Chose Lolita's based on reviews and I really like Michael Symon on The Chew. First let me say the restaurant atmosphere is great. A very cool laid back... More

We received a Holiday dinner from our family at Lolita's in Treamont and loved it! Good food made to order, at reasonable prices. We had a front window seat which added to the experience. Valet parking which is great as it is a tight area. We had potato soup followed by two pasta dishes,wine, coffee and a delicious chocolate bread... More
