“Consistent and delicious.”
Reviewed July 26, 2014 via mobile

Nothing fancy with great food and service in a fantastic location at a very reasonable price. Stroll the neighborhood before and after your meal. Perfect for first or fiftieth date. Can't miss the seafood paella for two. The pork chop at the table next to us looked amazing too.

“Very good, though the paella needs a bit more pep.”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

We dropped by with friends for some paella, which was good but not great. We went for appetizers, 3 the gazpacho (4*), 1 garlic soup (3*), Three of us had the seafood paella, for me it was tasty, filling, rich with seafood, but a bit bland (3-4*). My wife had the scallops dinner special, which was exceptional (5*)

Lola's is "transitioning" from BYOB (no liquor license) to wine and bar service. We were allowed to use our own bottles, but that may not be an option in the future.

“Lucked into this one!!!!!”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

Couldn't get into the restaurant of our choice so we walked across the street and tried this one and BOY WERE WE LUCKY!!!!! Delightful food choices.......pork, tuna, AND THE PAELLA is wonderful. The Calamari appetizer was yummy and the sauce was tasty.......of course, probably not the best alternative for a romantic dinner as LOTS of garlic!!!!!! All members of our party were happy with food and service and we would definitely return.

“Another Great Spanish Meal at Lola's”
Reviewed June 14, 2014 via mobile

This hole-in-the-wall locals' dinner restaurant is consistently good time after time!! Love their paella (combo of course!!), house-made sangria, garlic soup (one of their specialties) & flan for dessert. Even though it's across town, I do refer my guests there often. WONDERFUL!!

There is nothing fancy about this place but the food is terrific! It feels like a true local foodie's spot. Service and staff are great. Would definitely return.
