Fun place To go with family and friends. Craft cocktails are interesting (be careful - some are strong). Tapas are easy to share from stuffed figs wrapped in bacon, octopus, and child rilleno. We also brought two bottles of a lovely 2004 Spanish wine and even though the corks were very soft they carefully took the time to safely remove the corks to preserve an excellent pairing we had planned. Desserts were also quite good especially the bread pudding Knocked off a star because they ran out of several items and at least one item needs to be removed from the menu that "they haven't had for a long time." Service was efficient but waitress was a little loopy

The bacon wrapped dates and skirt steak are a few of my favorites, but their octopus is the real winner!”

We visited Lola G on a Friday evening so this place was packed and the wait was over 30 minutes. Let me tell you, that wait was well worth it...the food and atmosphere did not disappoint.
Our meal started out with the Bacon covered dates, which were a little sweet and tarty at the same time. Also shared the short rib tacos with my wide, spicy but very good.
All their drinks are also very good. I first had the LA Bomba which on the sweet side. Also, had the Mas Fuerte, which is exactly that; a stronger drink. Desserts are very good...save room for desert.
Lastly, do not forget about the kids. They enjoyed the restaurant too. I don't think they have a kids menu but they do offer kid size portions. My 8 year old son had their hamburger and he loved it.
Overall, an amazing place worth going more than once, twice...and more.

First, if you are looking for tapas in the pure Spanish sense, this place is not that place. But, if you want great choices of small plates with Latin inspiration, this is that place. The feel is casual, and hip. The wines and beer choices are great and we enjoyed everyone of the many dishes we tried. Octopus and chorizo, wonderful. Small tacos of all sorts, ditto. Bacon wrapped dates with blue cheese, heaven. Go, it's fun and very tasty.
