Visited sisters in area, and took trip through Tremont are where we grew up. Always liked Michael Symon on tv, and always wanted to visit one of his establishments. Appetizers are wonderful, as is everything else on menu. We all tried something different. The Ohio Ribeye, and Pork Chop Milanese were terrific. Great place

My husband surprised me and took me to Lolita's for my birthday. I had always wanted to try it and it was well worth the wait! We were seated at a cozy table in the corner. The service was excellent, as well as the food! We tried the bruschetta, cured meats, beet salad and bone marrow apps. Everything was delicious... More

First time to Loita's. Love the Tremont area of Cleveland. We had every appetizer on the menu and them some of them again. This party of four ended up having appetizers for our dinner with Pizza in that mix. Some of the appetizers we ended up order 4 times. The Eggplant was the best I have ever had. The valet... More

Hubby is a big fan of Michael Symon, so he really wanted to go to at least ONE of his restaurants while visiting Cleveland. Lola's was booked out a week, so we were able to get reservations (through Open Table) for Lolita's instead. The food was "to die for". We ordered the macaroni pasta dish, which had a creamy goat...

My husband and I were returning from vacation and made a special stop in Cleveland solely to dine at Lolita after friends of ours had dined there several months before. They couldn't wait to tell us about their great dining experience there and we can see why. We totally enjoyed our meal, the atmosphere, the manager and our server. The... More

Food was phenomenal. Service was good. We even had free entertainment from the squirrel in the tree who pelted "helipcopters" at us all night.

After reviews of the different iron chef owned establishments in Cleveland, we decided on Lolita in Tremont and we are glad that we did. The atmosphere was cool and current. The locavore approach was woven into every aspect of the place. The food was simple with every dish done perfectly. The mussels in a chorizo herb broth was the best... More

This is the second time I go to Lolita after an excellent first experience. As an Italian guy, who is a food lover and critic and who has traveled around the globe trying the best food, I can tell you that Lolita has what it takes to be one of the best restaurants in the area. We had excellent bruschetta... More

Wow! We visited Lolita during the "Taste of Tremont" block party a couple weeks ago while visiting family in Cleveland. What a treat! First of all, love, love, love the area! It has such an eclectic vibe. People from all walks of life mingling and having a good time, quite refreshing in this day and age...but I digress. With all... More

Lolita is without a doubt one of the premier restaurant experiences in Cleveland. Chef Michael Symon's original restaurant sets a high standard of food and service in a comfortable atmosphere. Unlike his other flagship, Lola, Lolita is small, quaint, and does not require you to get too dressy and feel stuffy. The food is superb. My wife and I went... More
