Went here for dinner last night knowing an Iron Chef opened it so expectations were high. I wasn't disappointed. I got the strip steak and it was AMAZING!! Perfect temperature throughout and plated very nicely. I would definitely eat here again!

Lola is celebrity chef Michael Symon's flagship restaurant. It opened with lots of style and an innovative menu focusing on unusual meat preparations. The restaurant hasn't changed much over the last five years, but that's largely because they are doing it right. Lola has some...More

Very good food, very diverse menu, what would one expect from one of Michael Simon's restaurants. The visual ambience is nice, the service is very good, I find that it is too noisy for comfortable conversation, They may have valet parking,

Had the carnivore sampler. Service is like nothing I’ve seen before and food is to the highest quality as is the wine. Always busy and great atmosphere. Book ahead on busy nights.

This was a very nice restaurant. Definitely on the dressier side. Got a reservation after the symphony easily around 9pm. Very busy before then. Dinners were about 35 to 38 dollars each. Food was amazing well worth the money.

Lola Bistro opened in 1997 (in Tremont), later moving to the current location (east 4th street). Upon opening the current location, Lola became THE restaurant in all of Cleveland. Innovative menu, chic ambience/decor and celebrity chef status. Sadly, nothing has changed at the restaurant since...More

I don't think there is anything on the menu, but they are very accommodating. If you ask, I am sure they would make something he would like.
