Lola Restaurant & Grill Ratings and Reviews

The food was pretty good and service was good, but the restaurant is really outdated and odd. It could really use an upgrade for the Miami scene and location. We had to look beyond the ambiance, which it lacks.

This was a nice find. Ended up coming back the next day for dinner. Friendly and attentive staff. Vibrant music backdrop (not too loud) sets the mood. Food was tasty and cooked to order. Nice romantic outdoors dining.
Fantastic food & good service!
The filet mignon with mashed potatoes and mushroom, bacon & red wine reduction was absolutely fantastic. Good service! Average prices for Miami Beach!
Great food off the beaten path
Delicious, eclectic food in a restaurant located inside a condo complex in a quiet area of South Beach. Very reasonably priced for the area. Highly recommend the skirt steak, bronzino & gnocchi. No cocktails served but wine, beer & very good sangria served.

Our skirt steaks were cooked as requested and were delicious. No extra seasoning needed. The sides were also delicious and the right proportion. Dessert, homemade mousse and brownie, were great ways to end the meal. Prices were reasonable for the quality and not unexpected since we checked out the menu beforehand. Convenient to our nearby condo so no need for a car or cab and nicer than a cafe or pizza.
Skirt steak was amazing along with great fresh ceviche. Service was on point as well

Delicioso! Never a bad meal. Pleasant staff and service
I wish I lived closer to Miami!
We took my husbands sister to dinner. It was perfect. Quiet, delicious, and the food and drink prices were reasonable. The provoleta appetizer, and the Thai spice beef salad were large enough to share. We had salmon and skirt steak for the entrees. Everything was just so good, the salmon was carmelized and sweet/salty, but wait until you try the provoleta - it's like the best part of a grilled cheese sandwich!

Great great food. Service was horrible. Basically told us to find a seat, no hi, etc. Sat down and waited 15 for a server. Got water. Waited another 10mins. Got a bottle of wine, ordered our food. Apps, food and wine came and never got service for a long time after. Finished our wine, water and food then waited a good 15mins to be asked if we wanted dessert, but no refills? As for dessert menu, 20mins later we just got the bill and left. This place could be great cause the food is amazing. The service is horrible. Second time here. Same service in 2years span. Disappointed.

I have been to Lola's before and each time it gets better and better. Food was made perfectly and the ambiance of the whole restaurant was beautiful and unique. Every time I come to Miami, I ensure I make a night stop here. When I bring friends they say they will also make a staple of their Miami trips.

First of all I loved the decor and the food was amazing. The only thing that killed the experience for me was the service. We ordered the steak with a mushroom wine reduction sauce that was awesome, but the steak was brought out and we had to wait over 5 minutes for the sauce to be brought out all the while our steak was getting cold. I had to ask for water every time I ran out of it, we had to pour our own wine every time, the server disappeared after bringing out our food and I had to ask other servers for things. She didn't even bother to come to the table to ask how our food was. We stepped out to get some air and our check magically appeared at our table because if it wasn't for the fact that our server probably got scared that we walked out, we would have most likely waited forever to get our check. I had to call her over to charge me because she paid no attention to the fact that I was looking straight at her trying to get her attention. An 18 % gratuity was included and I really felt like she didn't deserve it, but I left it at that just because everyone else helped make it an a better experience by helping her out. The best part about this is that we went on a Tuesday and they weren't even packed. I could only imagine how the service would be on a really busy day. All in all I would give this restaurant another chance, but something has to be done about the service.

Great place ,we been there more than 10 times love the food and the service
Best place in town
Best place in town
it was much pricier than last year. food was good
we were ignored for about 15 minutes after we were seated. once our server took our order, our service improved
Great food and value. Ask for Phillip! Best value restaurant I have been in!
I was looking for a steak close to where we were staying. We were skeptical when we got there, but the food was AMAZING.
Fresh cuisine at Lola's
Just want a bite, or a bit more, then head into Lola's within a large Miami condo, but with a small, fresh taste of its own. You'll find hand-made and home-made sandwiches and platters all with the just made taste. Relax outside on its tables with beer or soda with your meal. Everything is cooked just for you! Fish, hamburgers and more await.
Very Rude Hostess!
We arrived early for our table, while i was waiting fot the parking attendant, my wife went upstairs to the dining room, presented herself and was assigned a table, it took me 5 minutes to deal with the parking, when I was about to meet my wife, at the restaurant, they gave our table away, and the hosted was rude explaining to her that she couldn't wait for me, we left, very disappointed! and probably not coming back, we come often to Miami Beach...the odd part is, i never got to see the place! This was a very bad experience!

Really EXCELLENT meat! We really like the food and the service as well. NB: it is located at the first floor of a Hotel, not easy to find (but not a big problem at all).
We fell in love with Lola's at just one bite!
Due to a late reservation, we were forced to try the Thai Beef Salad which was delicious!!! From that point, we knew dinner would be awesome. The steak was amazing and the chimichurri sauce was to die for. The service was also on point. Anyone in the area would check on us and our waitress was very attentive. We appreciated the entire experience at Christmas time. Definitely will return when we are in Miami!!!

Avoid the brownie dessert, it was very bad. The skirt stake was very good and the ravioli was good as well.

I didn't realize Lola Restaurant & Grill was in a hotel but we found it thanks to our GPS. From the valet service to the end of the meal it was an exceptional dining experience. The four of us tried two different salads and two different appetizers: these were followed by four different entrees (Rib Eye Steak, Pork Chops, Snapper and Skirt Steak). Each was cooked to perfection and delicious. Our waiter was friendly and helped us decide what we ordered. He was right with his recommendations. While the menu is small everything we had was delicious. We look forward to eating there again and again.
Lovely birthday dinner for 3!
After a lot of research in the area I learned of Lola. I liked how it sounded and the type of cuisine. I was not disappointed. The food was delicious. The atmosphere was very lovely. The staff were so courteous and the value was definitely a plus. We will return.
Romantic evening meal
Lola is a quiet restaurant with nice lighting to set the mood. It's small but not too small that you feel too close to other diners. Staff were very friendly and polite and the food was excellent and moderately priced. Overall I'd recommend it

Our food was great but our waiter was absolutely terrible. It must have been his first day.
I choose Lola's based on great reviews and it lived up to its reputation! The food was delicious - a perfect balance of traditional recipes and creativity. The baked provolone cheese was delicious if a little greasy but it's cheese so... the skirt steak was marinated and cooked perfectly. I had the mushroom and my hubby chimichurri topping. It was AMAZING! The brownie Sunday dessert was delicious. The portion size was generous. As for decor, I liked it . Id describe it as Miami Vice meets True Blood w/o actual guns and blood. The restaurant is in a residential building so I would not recommend for people watching bur it's perfect for a nice romantic dinner
Out of the Way Find
The restaurant is in the second floor of a residential tower in north beach. Our Uber driver missed it at first, it was dark and raining. There was some renovation work going on in the lobby of the building. The place is small and cozy, there are tables outside, but like I said it was raining and very windy. The wait staff was very good, we had the special Filet dinner and wine. Will go back next time we are in Miami Beach.
A real find at a Nice price
Good food at a fair price. We eat early and beat any crowd so service is fine. Steaks, seafood, Thai beef salad app.

Everyone in my party had the filet, and it was delicious! The servers could have been a little more attentive, but it was a great experience overall.
So glad I found this place! Took a group of ten girls here and it was absolutely perfect. Great service, and AMAZING FOOD!! Hands down one of my favorite restaurants.
Truly a Hidden Gem
My fiancé and I went to Lola while we were on vacation in Miami Beach. We LOVED it! It is truly a hidden gem tucked away in a condo building on the water. The restaurant is small so the noise level is low which is great for a romantic evening. We sat outside and enjoyed the beautiful view of the water. The outdoor patio seating is next to the pool area of the condo building but we didn't even notice (no chlorine smell or noise coming from the pool area). The food is fantastic and the service was the best service we received the entire time we were in Miami. We each ordered the skirt steak with one of their sauces and a side of rice and beans. All was fantastic. We also got a pitcher of red sangria that was amazing! For the price, the food and level of service can't be beat! We had an absolutely wonderful night, I would highly recommend this place!
I read about LOLA and that it was a hidden gem, and that is correct. It is in a condo building, but the ambience was delightful. We sat inside, but the outdoor seating looked beautiful, too. It overlooked the ocean. The service was stellar and the waitress made very good recommendations. The skirt steak was fabulous! If you wanted a casual dinner, you could go there and if you wanted a more upscale atmosphere, you could go there. All around a great find!
I love this tiny argentinean Italian kinda place. Staff & owner are excellent and prices are very reasonable for the area. Martin is been always my server he is outstanding. He's known as the argetinean George Clooney.
Don't miss this restaurant!
Everything here was outstanding...mussels were over the top...as good as any in France. The baked cheese appetizer had just the right punch. The snapper special was melt in your mouth...cooked to perfection with fresh tomato/herb garnish. The fruit de mari was great also. For dessert we had the fab chocolate mousse. The adjacent table was raving about their key lime pie. Oh...almost failed to mention the tasty homemade sangria...huge pitcher we couldn't finish! And all this for about half of the places we had dined like A Fish Called. Avalon...and Lola was twice as good!!! Very scenic setting overlooking pool and ocean. If you are looking for a trendy, noisy, overpriced, must be seen restaurant...this is not for you. It's a great atmosphere with excellent cuisine and we'll be back!
Excellent restaurant, a hidden gem. Excellent food
Lola's is a hidden gem on Miami Beach. The food is exquisite. Christian is an excellent chef and always has nice surprises up his sleeve. My favorite is the Lobster ravioli and the house salad is a meal - but so good. I would highly recommend Lola's for a romantic dinner, night out with family, friends or for birthday, anniversary and other celebrations. They are 5 Stars in my book!
