I went to Lola during restaurant week here in Cleveland, they were running a special during that time off of a different menu. The food was amazing, the staff was attentive and friendly. Wonderful place.

The only thing missing from our dining experience was seeing Michael Symon himself! Truly wished I had as I love his cooking! Started with a sweet pea sangria, unusually taste, but great! Kind of light and refreshing. The food was different and a wonderful fusion of flavors and ingredients. I had the hangar steak and it was done to perfection... More

The only criticism I have is that it was too noisy for conversation. However, our waiter was very friendly and helpful.

This is a great place to sit at the bar and have appetizers. The wine cellar is actually a wall behind the bar glass enclosed. $th street is blocked to traffic so this place and many others are all in walking distance. Great street to spend a nightof food and fun!

We got there a little early--6:30 p.m. and were able to get a table outside. The food is fantastic and the Menu was fun to read. Looking forward to trying again when I return. Lola is on a great little pedestrian street--worth a visit.

We decided to dine here for our 10 year anniversary and I'm glad we did! We were seated right away by the friendly hostess. Dave, the bartender, made an outstanding Aviation cocktail which can sometimes be hard to find. Our server, Veronica, was extremely polite and very helpful! The mixed green salad was excellent with blue cheese and a smoky... More

As a fan of Michael Symon, I couldn't wait to finally get to eat at one of his restaurants. It was WORTH THE WAIT! The beef cheek pierogi was amazing! The bone marrow was rich and the accompaniments are soooo good! The calves heart and scallops were also great. For dessert the '6 am' and delicious but big, and the... More
