“Just ok”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Maybe it was the time of year we went but I have a few "must's" if I am going to a restaurant that charges what Lola's charges. 1) I expect the waitstaff to be more knowledgable. The waitstaff at Lola's seemed awfully young and inexperienced. 2) I would expect a little more extensive wine list. The wines they had weren't terrible and it seemed the markups were actually fairly decent, but there weren't very many good, higher end wines on the list.
I would hope that this place would have better service in the summer months when I assume it is packed. We were there on a recent Friday evening and there were only a few tables occupied. I thought the salads and the main courses were just average and I expected a bit more flavor for the prices we paid.
It was okay, just not what you'd expect from a high end restaurant.

“Fine Dining in Comfy Setting”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Fine dining with great views and a comfy ambiance. No need for coats. Casual business or nice jeans are fine. A great place for those staying at the Osthoff and don't wish to walk to or drive to other eateries.

“Nice quiet meal with plenty of ambiance.”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

The service is always fine, the food tasted great!
Wine choices should be improved. Trinity Oaks is not even a $5.00 bottle of wine in a store.

“Big city quality in a small town environment”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

We had several meals at Lola's throughout our weeklong stay at the Osthoff Resort. The menu was fresh and inventive, and service was attentive and pleasant.
