Being in Cleveland we couldn't pass up the opportunity to dine at Lola's. The restaurant itself was named after a mutual friend of the family. While we didn't get to meet Michael it was well worth the visit. My meal began with the sweetbreads appetizer. They were lightly breaded and very... read more

My husband and stopped in Cleveland for the night and was told we had to go to Lola's restaurant. The brick cobblestone road closed off to restaurants only was a great idea to bring people down to the city. Lola's was one of these restaurants, the decor was in dark tones and modern . The menu was mostly meat items... More

This is Mike Symon's beautiful and delicious restaurant in downtown Cleveland. The food is always interesting and wonderful. The pork chop is the signature dish and if you eat pork, you shouldn't pass it up. My favorite drink there is the gin and juice. That said, you really can't go wrong because there is an attention to detail, taste, and... More

I believe Lola's is supposed to be the best restaurant in Cleveland. The prices certainly make you think that may be the case, but my husband and I were disappointed. Some of the dishes were very good to excellent; others, not so much. We enjoyed the beef cheek pirogues; they were hearty and flavorful. My husband tried scallops on a... More

Great food and really good service in this restaurant. The kitchen is open for all to see and also has a chefs table if you want to watch the kitchen staff in action. The restaurant and the area have a really good vibe but Lola's is a stand out for me and I'd recommend a visit.

We were excited to dine at Lola once we booked a stay in Cleveland and we weren't disappointed. We booked early through Open Table and it was good that we did. Walking to the restaurant we got a fun surprise when we turned down the alley where it is located - what a fun street! It's been closed to traffic... More

Food cam out and was great but we never saw our waiter again until we were walking out the door and he didn't even... More

We had a business dinner here and the service was outstanding our server knew the menu and had great suggestions. We had co-workers from out of town and wanted to come here and they were not disappointed but very impressed. The food is great and very different. The way they bring your food out all at the same time is... More

We tried to get a table early on a Monday to be told it was full. We got there and it was empty and had to sit by the kitchen on a bar area. The place ended up completely packed an hour later. Where we were sitting you could see them cooking everything and plating as the kitchen was open.... More
