Sure hand in the kitchen

Consistent well turned offerings with Mediterranean seasoning and sensible application of flavor and heat. Tasty dishes aren't over or undercooked. Wait staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Wines very good. Lola is one of the better if not the best restaurant in Great Neck.

I saved a review that I read and knew that I wanted to try this restaurant.As great as the review was, it did not adequately prepare me for this incredible experience. The freshness of the food--the combinations of flavors and the beautiful way the food is presented all transport you to Nirvana.

We haven't been here in a while and it was just as good as I remembered. We had a bunch of appetizers that were great for sharing. A few entrees and the dessert was good too. I won't wait as long next time to go back. Another plus is the noise level is good you can actually hear everyone speaking.... More

We went to Lola's for the first night of Restaurant Week 2015. Have not been there in years due to an unpleasantness (related to portion size) when they first opened. My Gosh - what I have been missing! The food was so SPECTACULAR I could not believe it. We had the best appetizers I've had in years - Moroccan Carrot... More

The food was simply stunning, a nice touch touch was the chef coming to ask how the meal was!!. I will definitely visit again.

I asked for a convenient table so my elderly parents can maneuver easily with their cane and walker. We were seated quickly at the first table which unfortunately caught all the drafts and bustle. We asked several times to adjust the temperature and make sure the entry doors close properly. It was freezing but our discomfort ended when we began... More

Terrific food at fair prices. Great place for a quiet lunch. An eclectic menu with many interesting choices. We order several small plates and skip a main course.

Although we have been Long Islanders for a lifetime, this was a first visit to Lola. At our friend's suggestion we ordered the tasting menu, and it was the right choice. A little more explanation would have helped when the various dishes arrived, but the aromas and taste were almost sufficient. Martinis were well made, service fast and cheerful. There... More

The reservations were not mine at this well respected Great Neck Resto. I expected little and was I blown away after the first course !! The service was top notch and the ambience pleasant. But above all was the duck dish. A sophisticated, perfectly cooked duck breast with large slices of Fois Gras scattered on top. Duck Heaven !! The... More
