Lola Restaurant & Grill Ratings and Reviews
This place was great! I had the fried provolone appetizer which came out in a hot mini skillet, and the filet for dinner was cooked perfectly. For desert I had the brownie with vanilla ice cream. The ambiance is very nice and cozy and romantic. Not fancy fancy either, you can wear a dress and heels, but if you wore jeans and a nice shirt that works too. I definitely recommend this place and will go back.
Terrible service. Will never go back. Took 20 minutes to get someone to even talk to us, service was terrible. The waitress and owner talked poorly about our table eight in front of us because one girl had a charge on her card that wasn't right. So rude. The owner at one point wouldn't look up from his phone to answer a question. Do not go here.
Took my girlfriend here for Valentine's Day. First time I have been there but service was terrible. Took 10 minutes for the water to bring water and another 15 minutes for him to even ask if we wanted drinks. Took even longer to have him bring bread. Food was decent but I've had better. Heard people arguing in the kitchen. Took forever for the waiter to bring back my check to sign. Might have been an off night for the waiter and the restaurant as it only seemed to have 2 or 3 waiters working. Food took a long time to come out. Won't repeat.
First time here. Very lovely ambiance, very good food. Cat very attentive waitress. I had made a suggestion regarding posting a sign on beach side to boost attendance, Cat said great idea, I will tell my boss, who was at the bar on the phone..Good management would have suggested that he come over to our table and thank us for the suggestion. Poor that he did not bother. We will return , but felt the need to respond. Meeting guests by managemrpent is the key to good business.
Went here for a bachelorette Saturday. Only bad thing was it was slow-but that's the Culture I believe. With that being said the service was great. They were super accommodating. Taking photos of us. "No problem" to any question. They really took care of us and I couldn't say enough nice things about staff. Food is pretty good. The chicken was tender. Somewhat smaller portions but tasty and enough. Keep in mind no liquor only beer and wine. The pitchers of sangria were good and reasonably priced. Whole meal was very reasonably priced as well. Would Rec. Due to the service.
We had a delightful and delicious meal at Lola. Ate outside on the patio overlooking the pool -Alone for most of our meal.
Our server was top notch and our meal was very well made - ceviche and flap steak chimichurra. Good wine selections.
We happened upon this restaurant because we were in the area - it was a great find!
1. The price that appears here it is not the same as the restaurant prices ( flap steak $19, NY steak $24) some are more expensive like the filet mignon that here is 19 and it is 34. Also you have to pay for the sauce and the sides.
2. The service, Regular, they did not give us a good attention.
3. The location it wasn't that good, but still okay, also the place looks odd of what it is.
4. THE FOOD, you don't pay for the service or the location, you pay the food, and I ate GOD'S food. Totally worth the money. I recommend this places because of the food.
Beware. Lola's adds a gratuity to all checks. I am not accustom to this and since we did not look at our check thoroughly, my fiancée and I left an additional cash tip of 20%. Yes, it is our fault for not paying close attention to our check. What is upsetting is that we have called the restaurant 3 times leaving them messages asking them to refund the lower tip (as our credit card advised), but have not gotten a response. A call back would have been appreciated. The food was fine but the experience left a bitter taste in my mouth. A $40+ tip on a meal for two people on vacation hurts.
We were staying in Miami Beach for two nights and wanted something other than South Beach. My search found Lola in a great location - high end condo building on 55th and Collins.
The décor is unique and beautiful. Our service was very friendly and personal. Many excellent options for light bites or full meals, and a great wine selection. We found the quality to be excellent and at very good value.
New Year's Eve dinner with family, very enjoyable meal, slightly cold inside, maybe air conditioning needs slight adjustment. Very good service, gratuity of 18% added to bill which seems to be common in Miami, we would rather calculate and decide the amount ourselves.
Last year we only went once because we were disappointed. We decided to give Lola's another try. We are glad we did! The food was very good as was the service. It must be under different management as the whole atmosphere has changed. We will be back. We live 2 buildings away
The worst service I've ever experienced in a restaurant. It was 30 minutes to even get water for the table. Two hours later, entrees finally come out for everyone except my boss. Everyone had finished eating before my boss' entree finally came out. Food was decent but ambience and poor service combined with lack of concern with wait staff - I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.
The Chimichurri Marinated Chicken is, hands down, the best chicken I have ever had. Several others at the table had some of my chicken and felt the same way. Everyone (7 of us) thought the food was excellent and overall, very reasonably priced, especially given the area. I also really enjoyed the beet salad. I highly recommend this place!
Fuimos a cenar con mi esposa y mi hija, porque al ser Argentinos buscabamos un restaurante con buena carne y comida sin gluten. La experiencia fue genial, el NY Steak es fantástico y el resto de la comida igual. Las batatas fritas las recomiendo.
La atención de Philip fue MARAVILLOSA, realmente valoren a ese camarero porque es excelente.
Enjoyed our server! Food was pretty good! Tables were pretty close together but we went early enough that it was quiet. I probably would not go when it would be full because I don't think conversations would be quiet.
Try the skirt steak and the brownie dessert!
I was planning to go to another Argentine restaurant which I had enjoyed previously when I saw all of the positive reviews of Lola. This was one of the best meals any of us had enjoyed in a long time. The cerviche was superb, as was the chimichurri shrimp. Our table ordered pasta, red snapper and ribeye steaks and everything was perfect. I also ordered a sampling of sauces for my steak and while they were all delicious, the steak was so flavorful I did not end up using them. Service was also outstanding and made for a truly memorable evening for our group. I will definitely be back.
Typically I don't write reviews but this restaurant warrants one for its spectacular food and service. While visiting from NY, my wife and I decided to try something further up the beach away from the noise and we made the best decision of our trip.
We had the sliders which were great for appetizers. The ribeye was truly amazing and my wife loved her filet mignon. We capped it off with dulce de leche for dessert and left mightily impressed. We will definitely go back again during our next trip.
I loved the decor and ambience of this place! I went with a friend during our vacation in Miami. The food was excellent! I had the lemon herb salmon with Yukon gold mashed potatoes. It was delicious. The service was pretty slow though. The restaurant wasn't busy at all, there were about four parties in the main dining area, and our waitress was extremely slow. It took over at least 30 mins for her to pick up the check for us to pay. We didn't mind because we enjoyed the ambience but she was slow nonetheless.
On holiday in Miami whilst travelling from the UK. I wanted to find a nice place to take my girlfriend which would be outside of the South Beach area where we stayed. After searching on line I found Lola's which is also happens to be her middle name. I thought it must be serendipity so decided to give it a try. We were both in for a great surprise. Great food & great service. The location was very classy whilst the fare was affordable. We ate outside by the pool on a warm Florida night. My only regret was we only found Lola's on our last day in the city. Otherwise we would have gone again and again....:-)
