“Great Ambiance, Limited Menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2012

The place has spectacular decor and perfect lighting. Service was great. We had reservations but still had to wait at the bar; not a problem at all as it is very cozy and the bartenders are friendly and welcoming. My wife and I were a bit disappointed by the rather limited menu and minuscule French-size portions. But all in all, a fine place to have dinner while in town.

“Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2012

The food is always awesome, the service excellent. It is extremely loud, hard to have a conversation at times.
The bone marrow and the beef cheek pierogis are wonderful.
I prefer Lolita's for the ambiance.

“Cleveland Foodie Mecca”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

Michael Symon does himself proud here. We went for a special night out and were not disappointed.
The food is very good, the service is wonderful, and the prices are reasonable for the experience. Beef cheek pierogies...must try. Drink options on tablet a neat thing. I could have played with it all night.
We had a wonderful dinner, then across the street to the comedy club for a show, then to The Chocolate Bar, and finished the evening with a stop at the casino. Nice to be able to walk downtown and hit so many places on foot.

“Too much hype”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

Other than being given an iPad to peruse the drink menu, beer and wine selections, we found this Michael Symon restaurant to be an underwhelming experience.

“Lovely lunch at Lola”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

Every bite was delicious. Interior was cozy, if a bit dark. Located on a pedestrian street, but cars could turn travel as far as the valet parking (no connection to Lola). Who knew that sour cream ice cream would be so delicious?
