Many "great" reviews so I was looking forward to dining with a group of 6. Some celebrity chef restaurants have been a disappointment but not Lola's.
Everything about the evening was well done. Service was knowledgeable, helpful and not pushy or over bearing. Wide selection of signature cocktails, decent wine list with bottles from $50-$1200. The food was absolutely fantastic and I don't use that term lightly. All 6 people in our party thoroughly enjoyed their meal. Several in our group had salads and they were unique and tasty.
We all said we would definitely come back when we are in Cleveland again.
Some of the dishes we thought were outstanding:
Sweet Corn and Crab Soup
Grain & Stone Fruit Salad
Margret Duck
Beef Hanger Steak

Lola is a very special place; food, service and atmosphere, are a 5 * experience! We had such a wonderful evening, that we are returning again. Brian was a perfect server; he even took time to make us a list of his favorite restaurants in Cleveland, OH to try while we are here. This is a foodie place, but they try to make everyone have a wonderful experience. They have an outdoor patio, for those lovely nights, but the inside is elegant and cozy. Don't miss this restaurant in the center of downtown Cleveland's restaurant row.

The food was excellent, the atmosphere delightful, the service spot on. The 4th street avenue is so high energy, lit up and full of people. This is a must stop for Cleveland, anyone from Cleveland will tell you the same.

My husband knows that the only person I would ever leave him for is Michael Symon, only if things between he and Liz didn't work out of course. ;) Even knowing that, how wonderful is my hubby to take me to Lola for our anniversary?!? It was a perfect evening. We made reservations and were seated promptly upon arrival. We ordered the beef cheek pierogies ad an appetizer because we had heard so much about them and they surpassed expectations. My hubby had the ribeye and I had the pan seared scallops and they were both melt in your mouth delicious! It is amazing to be able to see a local guy do so much for the city of Cleveland. We have followed Michael since before The Next Iron Chef, cheered him on to win that, and will continue to root him on!
