“Casa Lola review”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

This restaurant was recommended by the bellman in our hotel as a place with authentic Puerto Rican food where locals eat. We arrived at 8:30 on a Wednesday night and the place was packed. The friendly bar tender introduced us to the drink known as Caipirinha, which is made with a Brazilian variety of rum. The drink was the perfect blend of sweet and tart tastes. For dinner, I had salmon, which was grilled in a dark spicy sauce, containting a hint of coconut flavoring. My wife had jumbo shrimp over a bed of spicy rice. Both were excellent.

“Would be perfect if they had outdoor dining!”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

Visited this Restaraunt on March 5 and loved everything about it. Great food, great service. The only way it could have been better is if they offered outdoor seating to enjoy the nice evening.

“Outstanding! Roberto Treviño is an artist!”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

Went here on a whim, and was shocked to find that it is owned by Next Iron Chef start Roberto Treviño. The food was amazing. I had the Carribean Mofongo and my wife had the chicken skewers with piña colada cheesecake, and everything was amazing!

“Delicious and unique food”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

After some so-so food and difficulties getting a table elsewhere, we decided to wait it out here and it was well worth it. We had to wait a bit even though there were a few empty tables. The cocktails (Sangria) were good and had a little taste twist. The waitress was very helpful and anticipated our needs. We started with a plaintain nacho dish which we are still talking about weeks later. Then for mains we had fish, pork and chicken. The appetizer portion is quite large. The mains were good. The chicken dish (kabob) was fine but not super exciting. The fish was well made. I had the pork dish (pork with risotto). The risotto was so delicious. We also had a chocolate cake which was fine.

The atmosphere and decor are interesting. Restaurant is very clean and inviting. It is a little loud inside so sometimes hard to have conversation.

Overall the food and service are excellent. They add a twist to most dishes.

“Not good”
Reviewed March 5, 2013 via mobile

Casa Lola is an extremely noisy place where they happen to serve some not-so-good food. The waiters are untrained and impolite. There are plenty of good restaurants in Sam Juan, and Casa Lola is not one of them. Skip it.
