“Fantastic restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

Michael Symon has created a gem. Gourmet tastes and textures, along with a great bar and custom cuts of beef. Service impeccable.

I asked for a specific ribeye cut, and they accommodated.

Did I mention the service?

Best on the North Coast.

“Special evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

This was a memorable evening. The waiter was friendly and informative. The wine list was funky high tech. The food was unbelievably tasty. Would go back, if I'm ever in Cleveland again.

“Ew”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

As food network fans we were looking forward to eating at Lolas but when we got there the menu looked so gross we decided to go somewhere else. :(

“Spot on”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

My husband is from Cleveland and a fan of Michael Symon. He could not believe how much 4th street has changed since he was growing up there. We both ordered something a little less traditional for us, he had the lamb heart ( and Beef Cheek Pierogi), loved them! I had the squash soup with sweet breads and sturgeon which was cooked perfectly.

Service was exceptional and atmosphere was nicely done. When we get a chance to go back, I would like to sit at the bar overlooking the kitchen. To me those were the best seats in the house.

My husband commented on the fact that it was a little dark, but that was ok. If we had one complaint, was the noise. Very loud and we had a hard time hearing each other talk, I had to ask the server twice to repeat the specials. But beyond that, it was spot on. Just what to expect from Michael Symon.

“Eclectic menu and chic atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

We (6) friends had dinner at Lola's Tuesday night. We arrived at 8pm and enjoyed a cocktail at the bar which is beautiful and has floor to ceiling bottles of wine. Once seated our waitress was on-top of our group bringing us 2 bottles of Cabernet and several cocktails and beer. The bread is yummy, hot and fresh! We all had a different appetizer, the best were the gnocchi and the lobster although every one was magnificent. For dinner we had the pork chop (huge, moist and delicious), scallops, hanger steak, corn something, fish, and the pork shank. Everyone raved! We had some sides of the spinach with shaved Parmesan, also amazing. We all had dessert but by this point we also had too much alcohol...so all I remember was the chocolate/pretzel and cheesecake were the best. Our bill was $700+tip. Actually priced well for everything we ate and drank...we left full and happy and will definitely recommend Lola's to all. A great place for a large dinner party or a romantic dinner for 2. The staff are top notch, the chefs are the best and very talented.
