Place is cozy and friendly, could use more servers. The food is fresh and the drinks are good but could use better selection of wines. Tacos are yummy and very well done. Bread pudding is great. I like it so much I will go back.

I tried to make a reservation for 3 people, but on Saturday's Lola Gaspar's does not take reservations. We decided to walk in early before the first set arrives. We got there at about 6PM and there were no tables other than the patio. Which was fine. The waiter later found a nook inside that could sit us. The food was still great from when we remembered the last we had dinner here. Bacon covered dates with blue cheese, octopus, grouper tacos, braised taquitos and the mussels. The mussels were great for cold weather, having a bit of heat from the jalapenos. My son also ordered the cheeseburger, which lasted only 3 minutes with his appetite. He was pretty focused on the burger, meaning it was that good.
Overall experience this time was excellent.

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
