I was underwhelmed with the cocktails. Food was good - not great - prices seemed in line with other restaurants in the area. The hostess (?) was a bit rude to us when we came in but our server was very nice.

In addition to the unique and delicious menu options, the service is excellent. Special dietary restrictions are easily and wonderfully accommodated to ensure your culinary experience is the best it can be. Highly recommended!!

We had an opportunity for a quick overnight get away. We had a late lunch at Lolita that did not disappoint. Plenty of options for all taste pallets. Our server, George, was very attentive and quite knowledgeable when answering menu questions. Seating is limited. Reservations highly recommend.

My friend and I had lunch on a weekday at Lolita. She had eaten a couple of times so I went along. Mexican food is rarely my first choice but I must admit Lolita's was very good. I enjoyed the hanger stake tacos (three tacos) made with a radish sauce, cilantro, beef tender and spicy, all in a taco that... More

Full disclosure: my husband and I did not eat at Lolita. We arrived for lunch a bit on the late side and were offered a table all the way in the back of the restaurant or one in the front right on top of the hostess stand. When we asked about other tables that were open, the hostess said they... More

I actually found this place by accident - a very happy accident. Fusion Mexican food and fantastic Margaritas. May I suggest the Chilequiles? I'm headed back tonight!

My wife and I had a great dinner on July 2nd. Sat outside and enjoyed margaritas, chips, salsa & guac to start and then fish and shrimp tacos for dinner. An excellent evening. We will be back!

I stumbled upon Lolita by chance while visiting Philadelphia over the 4th of July weekend. I was traveling alone but felt very comfortable dining here! The service was great, very attentive. I had the fish tacos and a blood orange margarita, both of which were delicious! Definitely a spot I'll frequent when back in Philadelphia!

Overall the best mexican restaurant experience I've ever had for this price range. Food to die for the most professional waiter I've had in the US.

Food was great, not doused with cheese. I had the grilled shrimp tacos which were wonderful. Great flavor, fresh queso, fresh cilantro, perfect proportions of each. Service was great, seating inside and out. Professional staff, will definitely be going back, to try other items on the menu.
