Restaurant Week - Awesome!

The minute you walk in the door and are greeted you'll know you are in for a treat. When you don't drink liquor, we have noticed, you are treated differently by the wait staff in many restaurants but we did not find that here. Our waitperson was attentive and pleasant during our entire meal. I'm sure that he did not... More

Our group of five from a nearby office trekked down East 4th St. on a frigid February Wednesday to finally try this well-known restaurant. It was worth the hike! From the moment they offered to take our winter coats before seating us, until the time we headed back out into the cold, we felt like honored guests. The lunch menu... More

My wife and I are in Cleveland for a long weekend and the first thing we did was book a reservation here at Lola. It's restaurant week, which we wee lucky enough to find out to our hotel and Lola did not disappoint. The portions were great, the pork chops were heaven but everything I tasted melted away in my...

This place never disappoints. We come 4-5 times a year. Always amazing food. This time we sat at the Chefs table. The chefs are super busy and don't interact with the guests. Too bad. But the food was wonderful. Orders off restaurant week menu. Had soup, pierogies, hanger steak and skipped dessert. Can't wait for a repeat visit!

Amazing! Simply amazing! Food, service, wine, attention to detail. Everything was spot on! Huge fan of Michael Symon and this restaurant reflects that!

In the trendy Tremont area of Cleveland. The place is small but very romantic with soft lights and great service. We had scallops and steak and both were very good. There were only 3 scallops but they were the largest scallops my husband has ever had anywhere and he said they were excellant. I had the steak with potatoes. Everything... More

Lola is one of those places that you can count on. It's going to be delicious. The service is going to be efficient. You're going to want to have a reservation. What more can I say, Lola is a sure thing. It's a pricey alternative to some of the other downtown restaurants, but worth the expenditure. A lovely atmosphere (albeit,... More

Great food and ambience. You can give your food restrictions at reservation and the waiter guides you through menu keeping in mind your food restrictions.

This place is in the heart of everything. Decor was elegant, but it was very dim inside. We read some of the prior reviews here on tripadvisor and it was mixed, but we realized that some of the people who are fans of the chef, may not be true foodies. We loved the little pig cookie at the end too.... More
