We spent a Wednesday night in Cleveland for a Cavs basketball game. We had always wanted to dine at Lola but had not given it consideration for that evening until earlier that same morning. We were able to make a reservation online for an early seating which gave us time for the short walk to "The Q" in time for... More

The food itself is great but don't come here if you are starving, The portions are extremely small but the quality is truly superb. Great atmosphere as well!

I read many reviews before making reservations to Lolas. This restaurant really lived up to it's rating. Bread was delivered to the table and to be honest it was mediocre. We were going to order dessert so we skipped appetizers. We ordered the hanger steak and the smoked pork chop to split. We were able to watch the chef's cook... More

We visited on a Monday night, and perhaps that was the problem. We had a reservation and were seated right away. We were brought a wine/cocktail list on an iPad. Our server seemed to be in a hurry to get our drink orders. There were two pinot noir wines by the glass. The wine list is incredible, so I figured... More

We came here with reservations before a Cavs game. The pork belly was a small portion a little too fatty it was interesting. I had the hanger steak with Lola fries (pork fat) the steak was tender but kinda bland. The fries were decent. My boyfriend had the scallops and he said it was really salty. The service was extremely... More

In Cleveland for the weekend and decided to finally try Lola's after walking by it on E. Fourth Street dozens of times in the past. Greeted immediately by a friendly hostess and seated right away even though we arrived five minutes before our reservation time. Service was impeccable all evening. The beef cheek pirogues were outstanding, like no pirogue I... More

My husband and I went to Lola for my birthday and we really enjoyed it. We don't dine in higher end restaurants much, so I'm not sure I have much to compare this to! First the service was excellent - and probably one of the best we've had in any restaurant. Our waitress and the overall staff were thoughtful and... More

Lola is worth the drive into Downtown Cleveland on a cold winter night. It may have been subzero temps but you leave the cold outside when you enter the warm and welcoming interior of Lola. We were promptly greeted, coats dealt with and seated as soon as we arrived for our reservation. It was really busy yet our server never... More
