I took my chef boyfriend to Lola for his birthday and I was a little nervous because he cooks in a upscale restaurant in Akron. He was completely impressed. Everything from the service to the fall-off-the-bone tender beef shank that he had. The atmosphere is great which makes Lola a perfect date spot. The menu is small and since I'm... More

I've been here numerous times-great food, atmosphere, and location. Extensive wine menu-that lights up making it easy to see in the dim lighting. Everything I have ordered has been excellent. Indoor and outdoor seating -will be back many many times!!

We stayed in Downtown CLE and were able to get last minute reservations at Lola for a group of 5. What was supposed to be a decent bite to eat ended up being one of the most memorable meals we've ever had! Every course as a delicious as the next, we had excellent service and a really fun way to... More

Chef Symon is fantastic to watch on TV and it is even more fantastic to eat at his resturant. I had the bone marrow appetizer and was very impressed. On another visit I had the Beef Cheek Pierogi - fantastic. All of the entrees are really good and for a side don't miss out on the Lola fries.

The two of us had a delightful evening at Lola, though the service and the first courses were definitely a tad below our expectations. The oysters were delicious, but the beef cheek pierogis were just okay. Both of our salads were fresh and tasty, but seemed overpriced compared to what we get for the same $ at similar restaurants. That... More

Upon receiving a recommendation, I immediate looked to book a dinner for 3 the same evening. They had a decent wine list and spread of local beers. I have taken to the Dortmunder Gold while in Ohio and highly recommend. The charcuterie board was phenomenal - the pastrami specifically was well balanced with mustard topping and jams. As for entrees,... More

Three of us dined here and shared the charcuterie and cheese platter. They both had a nice presentation but I would probably not get the charcuterie again. One of the girls had the mussels. They were very large but got very few for about 35$. The other girl had the pork shank. She liked it. I had the mushroom pasta.... More
