“Romantic Dinner”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

When we made our reservations we noted we were celebrating our anniversary. We had to postpone our initial visit by 2 1/2 weeks because of illness. When we finally got to Lola they still had the occasion noted and wished up a Happy Anniversary when we arrived. They placed us at a table that was as secluded as it could be in a crowded restaurant. The restaurant is dark but for us romantic. Our waitress was excellent. The drink menu is an Ipad, we got a kid out of that. My husband had a rib eye and I had salmon, both were excellent. Beet salad and desserts were very good also. Highly recommend visiting this place if you are in Cleveland.

“Carnivore's paradise, interestingly done!”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

Part of the reason to go to Cleveland was to eat at Lola. Michael Symon has put together a seasonal, elevated comfort food, sophisticated dining experience. And even though I call it a carnivore's paradise, there were numerous fish and pasta options, including a vegetarian pasta option. We began with the OMG cocktail, which was light and refreshing. Drinks and wines are presented via IPad, which was interesting. The beef cheek and wild mushroom pierogi appetizer was delicious, and a nod to Cleveland's heritage. I had the venison, which was perfect, and my husband had the duck, also wonderful. The red wine and prosecco recommended by the waiter were delicious. The bar is gorgeous and large. You can sit overlooking the kitchen if you like. Nice decor. Excellent service. The only negative we could mention was that it was loud, but we were seated near 3 large parties and one extremely loud woman, and that is not the restaurant's fault. I will go back again!

“Simply Excellent”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Three business friends and I went early just so we could get a table - glad we did. The atmosphere and food were excellent, the service was perfect, and the GM came to check on us at one point, which was appreciated. By the time we finished, the place was rockin' and with good reason. Highly recommended.
