I had high expectations for Lola during my recent trip to Cleveland. I was disappointed with the overall service and surprisingly did not find the food outstanding. The host was not welcoming at all as well as made efforts to not pay attention to my party as we left. When they brought over a bread basket, it included only the... More

My husband and I are big Food Network fans, I'm a huge Michael Symon fan---like my husband, he is also from Cleveland, so that was enough to start a love affair for me :) Anywho, we have been trying to get up to Cleveland to try this place for a long time, and being in town for a friends baby...

My husband and I ate at Lola during a recent trip to Cleveland and had an amazing time. The food was delicious, staff friendly and atmosphere inviting. A very pricey meal, but it was definitely worth it. As appetizers we had the beet salad and butternut squash soup (both excellent). Entrees were lamb tenderloin and scallops (the best I've ever...

This is the second time we have driven hours out of our way to go to Lola. Last time we had lunch but this time we were lucky enough to arrive at 5PM and make it for a dinner seating. My daughter is a big Michael Symon fan, so when we are in Columbus we swing by Cleveland! I love... More

This was to celebrate a significant birthday. We went with our immediate family for dinner. The menu was fabulous. There was a selection of classics done well and a smattering of more unusual items. We chose from steaks to sturgeon. From oysters to calf heart. The restaurant supplied a birthday cake. It was simply the best. The selection of drinks... More

We had a late reservation due to travel schedules. The staff was gracious, professional and went out of their way to ensure we had a wonderful night. We were the last ones out the door and the staff bid us warm farewells even at a very late hour.

Had a wonderful dinner here with my family. Each of the meals were wonderfully prepared and presented beautifully. From our server Brittany, to the prep chefs Rich and Will we were able to see, talk to, experience and enjoy conversing with the staff as the meals were prepared and provided to us. The entire team was fun, professional and knowledgeable... More

Great atmosphere & staff. Food was good but not the best I have had. Tried the pig ears (yummy), salmon (fair), hearts (good), & dessert s'mores (yummy). Great wine selection as well. Overall the experience was good.

This person who made the dessert can really cook and has refined taste. So do we ! Our kids took the hanger steak a very good quality but no veggies and fries. The halibut came overdone. My sturgeon was good wrapped in bacon but only 2 small pieces. take something different if you are hungry. Our waitress knew her etiquette... More
