I opted for the steak based on my server's recommendation. It was cooked the right temperature (med rare), but was tough, and had a lot of gristle. A poor piece of meat. I wouldn't give a poor rating based on one poor piece of meat. The steak was accompanied with raw onions, which is different, and overpowered the taste of... More

The ambience is nice and even if tables are a little close you can still chat comfortably. The mentioned greek inspired dishes may be confusing because there are also north African touches but Mediterranean would describe nicely the sort of cuisine you can taste here. We had saganaki fried cheese as a starter and then tagines: both excellent choices. A... More

Came here before a wine tasting with a few friends and had a wonderful experience. We sat outside and had breakfast and cocktails. I'm a pretty straight forward breakfast person and I feel like if you can't make a basic breakfast then I don't trust anything else. I will say this was one of the best eggs bacon and toast... More

'Tom's favorite breakfast' goes down as one of my top breakfasts of all time. One initially shies from octopus for breakfast, but it was nothing short of fantastic!

This was a busy place for breakfast on a Friday morning. They could eliminate a couple of small tables to give more room . I hate that you can hear every word of conversation from the table next to you. The food was good, but not great. Pricey for what you got. Don't like that they add 20% tip on... More

The food was amazing and one of the best breakfasts we have ever had. Eggs Benedict, sausage and freshly made donuts with cranberry jam. So many delicious flavors. One of the food highlights often Trip!

As stated in the title, this restaurant does offer some special dishes including Tom's breakfast and made to order donuts. The octopus was very tender and seasoned well with the Mediterranean spice. The pink yogurt source looked weird but gave a nice flavor to the whole dish. We just hope we can find more pieces of octopus instead of squash... More

We had a great dinner at Lola. We started with some of their signature cocktails and they were great (mine was pomegranate, cava and a liquor I don't recall). We had one of the spread, a cheese one of some kind, and it was great. The chicken, preserved lemon, brussels sprouts and faro dish was great. The braised beef short... More

Just happened to spend some days in Seattle and was recommended to go to Lola for breakfast. Ordered Eggs Benedict and fresh orange juice. Both were great. Be ready to pay more than the usual 11-13$ (almost double) but quality is there. Service is fast as well. Be aware that 20% will be automatically charged to your bill. That is... More

I chose my order based on asking the waiter what each decadent dish in front of patrons were and painstakingly choosing one. That is how good all the food looked that I didn't need a menu! I ended up on the lamb shawarma- scrumptious. The place was hopping even before noon on a Saturday, but seats readily became available at... More
