Maybe you come in with higher expectations when the restaurant is run by an Iron Chef. I just know I was expecting to be wowed, and I ended up underwhelmed. I was in for lunch and ordered the trout. It arrived as two chunks of fish rather than the whole filet you usually see, matching the earlier comments about small... More

Haven't had dinner at Lola's in over a year so we were anxious to celebrate our anniversary there! The bartender was very personable, recommending app and drink pairings, but left us alone to chat. The restaurant has a very cool vibe, and the service is outstanding. Our waitress (damn- can't remember her name, maybe too much wine? lol) had extensive... More

We were so excited to eat at Michael Symon's restaurant. After receiving reminder emails and a phone call I was expecting something sublime. We had a lunch reservation for 1 pm on Friday. We were out the door at 145pm. The food was okay I hade the beef cheek perogies which were delisicoiys and the chicken paillard which was terribly... More

We spent over $100.00 for two here and 4 hours later my wife and I had to order an appetizer at another restaurant because we were to hungry. If I spend $100.00 I expect servings large enough to be full! For what you get, this restaurant is not worth it. The atmosphere is very nice and the service is outstanding,... More

A colleague recommended Lola's because of the "Celebrity Chef" resident in house. Pluses - lovely waitress, lentil and lobster soup special, cocktails and wine list on iPad allowing you to order directly with transparency of pricing. Minuses - I had the duck and my colleague the halibut. The duck was very rare, and quite tough, and the halibut was bland... More

This was the first time I have tried duck, and it was delicious! I also had the cucumber & lobster soup which was delightful. A light summer treat! The wine recommended by our server was a superb pairing to the duck. Great service, good environment. It was a little noisier than I would have liked for the cost, but that's... More

My husband and I went to Lola just for dessert - as calling a week before was not enough time to get a more timely dinner reservation. It worked out well though - we just went there after the comedy show. We also were able to sit out on the patio on a beautiful night - and East 4th was... More

In Cleveland for a business trip, just stumbled on this when walking down the pedestrian way. Service was great, my pal loved the soup, our scallops were fantastic. After everything we were brought truffles - can't remember all that was in it except the unexpected balsamic - we raved about them so much we got two more!

My husband took me here for my birthday & I'll admit I was a little intimidated by the menu. To me nothing really sounded appetizing. "Crispy Pig ears, Beef cheek pierogi, Pickle sauce on the beef hanger steak??" sounds kind of gross but all three were all delicious. The pig ears, tasted like a crunchier version of bacon. Suprising, I... More

Let's start with the pro's - we timed our 200 mile driving trip to the east coast to end up in Cleveland twice - on the way here, we ate at B Spot and tonight at Lola's....... and both were worth the effort. Our server was Elizabeth - her recommendations, attentiveness, and pace of the meal were excellent and helped... More
