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.

My expectations were exceeded by Lola’s. A friend recommended to and also once we saw the reviews we decided to try it. Wine selection is excellent and we got a delicious Brandlin Cab from the wine county. My fiancé and I had the honey salad,...More

Good food but horrible prices. You're paying for the name of the tv star chef. Not appropriate for the average neighborhood.

We booked Lola as family were in town for the holidays and we always try to ‘show off’ Cleveland when possible. Since we have a local Iron Chef, of course Lola fits the bill. We all started with appetizers after placing our drink orders. One...More
