The service and food were exceptional but the a/c was defective and when they served the dessert there was a cockroach dead on the creme brulet.

For sure this is one of the best Restaurant in Miami Beach. The food is delicious from their appetizers to the desserts...Prices are really good for the quality of their food...The staff is very nice.

Lola you did not fail us! The service and food were perfection..last minute reservation and they treated us great. They don't serve spirits (only wine and beer), but they're priced super reasonable for Miami. Ambiance was sexy and romantic. Try the New York steak...d'lish!

Amazing lunch!! It's located in an apartment building on the M level. I live here so went to try the lunch - soooo good. They have a lunch special (I believe it's only Monday to Friday) and the price is amazing for the amount of food you get. They have specials for $11.95 and then various other prices for sandwiches, salads, etc. Very wide selection. I ordered the fish, side salad, and fries. They serve bread and butter when you arrive. Decent wine selection. I was so full! The only downside was that the service took a bit long, but it's probably because I went right when the kitchen opened at noon. I've heard the dinner is good too, so I'll be back go try that. You have the option of sitting outside on the patio, where you'll get a view of the pool and the ocean. Edit: tried the dinner - overpriced and not even that great. Ordered gnocchi.

I went here with my spouse for our 3 year anniversary, it was AMAZING!!!! This staff was so amazing. They made us feel like family. They were so welcoming and sweet and they treated us so nicely. They recommended the best things on the menu and they also gave us a few free things. They were just all around amazing hosts and I will be back for my next trip in Miami.

Quaint little spot with amazing food and service. The provoleta is to die for. The catch of the day was delicious and the filet mignon was great. However, the best bite was their crema Catalans dessert. It was absolutely delicious!

Located at the first floor of a condo, this restaurant is specialized for steak, but we've tried a pasta with fish too.. Waiters are very kindly and food very good, specially the New York steak.. List of wine is not so big but with a good selection..

This is one of the gem restaurants in Miami Beach that a lot of people don't know about. I guess it's because it's located inside a residential building. We came here for a birthday lunch and it was 13 of us. We were greeted and seated by friendly staff that provided us with a professional service. I actually had to leave after just an hour and they accommodated me with faster service and separated check without any issues. The food was excellent even though the portions could be a bit bigger. The menu is diverse with influences from different cuisines such as American, Italian and Argentinean. This restaurant is very well designed with an elegant feel. The prices are affordable but be prepared to pay a special rate of $10 for valet downstairs. I will be back!

We did a Sunday brunch it all went well. Food was good and service fine. Request to locate our group near a window and the waiter did it for us. Large group.

The place offers a large variety of delicious food. I loved dining here. The employees are always super nice, prices are convenient and the place is always clean.

Lola’s is an incredible restaurant. We had a group of 22 celebrating a birthday. The food came out and everyone received a hot meal cooked to perfection and served within minutes. My skirt steak and mashed potatoes was one of the best steaks I have had in a long time. Patricia our waitress, organized the seating for 18 then 20 and finally 22. Every time my wife called she answered Hi Maria, no problem.

Parking very difficult and food of average quality. Waiter removing plates before all diners finished eating (despite rest of restaurant empty). Food was average and included a generous service charge. Setting was nice but wouldn't be in a hurry back. Nothing exciting or different here ...

Service was not good at all. Had a Hispanic lady who rushed my family of 8 to order. Did not smile at all the whole time and looked upset. When we said at the end of our meal that she should smile a little more, her response was “I don’t smile that much, I work too hard and you guys took too long to order” (We were only there for 10 minutes before ordering food but I worked as a server before and I always gave my tables as much time they need especially bigger parties). It’s probably because they add a service charge that the service is so poor. We came to Lola based on reviews, this was our first time in Miami and not a good experience there. I don’t usually do reviews but I had to for this. Hopefully, the service gets better. The restaurant is pretty though and the food was ok.

I randomly picked this restaurant from Los Angeles for our last night in Miami. The food was delicious, the whole group enjoyed their meals. The staff was very friendly and patiently tended to us while we waited for our 4th person to arrive. Thank you Lola!

Good food and atmosphere. Service was good but a bit slow. You have to pay $10 for valet parking which seems to be the only parking option. Would have given it four stars but for the parking.

Everything with top-rate! The food, the service, the decor. Interesting to find an excellent restaurant in a Condo apartment building. It did not matter. Once you are in the restaurant everything else is secondary. The food was well prepared and delicious. The service was excellent and every dish was presented perfectly timed. I had the salmon tartare and my friend had the cerviche. We shared each dish. There was no shortage of portion. My entree was the spaghetti broth with mussels, clams and shrimp. He had the chicken dish. Delish! The expresso was a perfect finish to the meal.

This restaurant is quite a hidden gem located inside of a condo building in mid beach it offers a kind of intimate Manhattan luxury over looking both the swimming pool and ocean the food is deluxe I love particular value or their lunch specials that kid off for entrées like flank steak for Amir $11 you get two courses

Helio L.

Tucked away in a large hotel residence style building is Lola's restaurant. Food is well prepared. Service was good The restaurant looks like it could be a night club. Very interesting space about a mile from the Eden Roc hotel.

My boyfriend and I made a reservation here for our last night in Miami. One thing we learned during our stay, is there are a ton of overpriced places to eat with terrible food around here. Lola is a total exception. Our server, Suzie was an absolute delight. She was friendly and attentive despite managing multiple tables. The bus boy was amazing as well. My boyfriend got the mussels and filet, I got the ribeye. They were perfectly cooked. The down sides were that you only get one side with the meal. I prefer to have a starch and a vegetable. Also my ribeye was a very thin cut. However, I can understand that for the price. I would definitely return here.

Tiffaney B.

Suzie is awesome! The service was friendly and very on point. Food is very good. Excellent prices for the area. Steaks are cooked well and my boyfriend was very happy with the mussels also. I would recommend for sure.

Jonathan Njoku

Amazing service and amazing food! I got the rib eye, spinach gratin, and vegetables of the day. It was the most full of taste meal I have had in Miami so far. I can’t fault Lola’s. Each member of staff served with a smile and a welcoming attitude.

Ordered the skirt steak. Was excellent and didn't need steak sauce. Wife and I eat there for our anniversary!! Would highly recommend and if I'm back in Miami, I would come back!!

I was very excited to come to this restaurant as the pictures and menu looked nice. The customer service was great, no complains truly but the food was not good at all. First appetizer I ordered I had to ask to change it. The taste was just bad, the shrimp was a bit raw on the inside. My main course were the lamb chops and they did it in this sauce that was not mentioned to me at all or in the menu. The taste was horrible. Unfortunately it was not what I expected. And the price is very high for low quality food.

After a week of evenings out, we found Lola, the best one yet. Nice ambience, good food and great service. Recommended.

My favorite restaurant of all time! Amazingly priced food at the best quality. Every special occasion in my family, we head here. It doesn’t break the bank and the friendly staff makes each time memorable and awesome. The manager is incredibly friendly! Everyone should visit here for a meal. It’s a major hidden gem! Lola deserves way more than 5 stars!!!

Mike C

Beautiful decor, great food. Our server was new, Suzette, and she made a great recommendation with the sweet and spicy curry shrimp. Cannelloni was unique and incredibly tasty. Definitely recommend going there.

Joline Griffin

OMG! This is place is off the charts with food and service. They did not rush between courses and bring your food while you were still eating, perfect timing. Everything from the wine, chicken, roasted beet salad and shrimp was delicious! Totally recommend! Miami Beach may be an awful, rude and zero respect place to visit but this place is well worth it the visit.

I ordered the sliders and they were really good (especially the spiced tomatoes) but were very small. There isn't a wide menu selection and they don't serve liquor. Only wine, sake and beer. More than anything, I'm giving 3 stars due to the fact that when I came they were out of anything served fried so their menu was more limited, especially the sides. The restaurant itself is very small but pretty and thevalet is only $4!

Tiffany Hunter Dennis

Awesome!!!! We absolutely loved the food and atmosphere!!!!

Pete Bussey

Just got back from a wonderful dinner at Lola with my wife. Atmosphere very welcoming and cool vibe. Quite and comfortable, yet upscale and lively. We sat outside. Service was excellent from being seated until we left. New York Strip steak cooked perfectly. My wife enjoyed the snapper. Bottle of Block Nine Pinot Noir was excellent and flexible enough to pair well with both. Our server Patricia was outstanding, attentive without being bothersome. Just the way she poured the wine throughout the meal was a real pleasure and display of professionalism. Would recommend Lola without hesitation, and would be glad to dine here again on our next visit to Miami Beach.

Came here for a Bachelorette Dinner. Food was great and service was even better. The staff was very accommodating and they even took pictures for us. Very cute and quiet place with great food/drinks!

Patricia Retaleato

Had an AMAZING time last night with my partner & best friend. Everything was spot on. The food was delicious. The drinks were unique and hand-crafted with care. I could tell the bartender and chef took pride in their menu. Our server, Marianela, gave us excellent recommendations & was attentive but gave us enough space to soak up the ambiance and really enjoy the experience. The restaurant is inside a hotel, but we found a parking spot right outside the front door & it only cost $4 flat to park there. Glad we didn’t have to park in a garage or on the street. Hotel staff was helpful & directed us to the restaurant. Excellent interior design. High class experience. Came for salmon & a fun/classy environment; got treated like old friends. Thank you, LOLA!!

Service was very slow. My pork chop was overcooked and my salad was over dressed. The rest of the table enjoyed their meals and their food was well prepared. Ambience is a bit try-hard but was nice. My cocktail was really great.

Tyler Parrott

The food was delicious and the decor is fantastic. Very unique style with an upbeat feel.

I had a wonderful dinner Cinco de Mayo weekend with a small group of friends. This restaurant is located inside of a beautiful hotel/condo building and the ambiance is amazing. It feels incredibly luxury, intimate and exclusive as the restaurant is not big but is decorated fabulously. Our waitress was beyond nice, had amazing recommendations for not just food but drinks as well and was very attentive. The food was just delicious and a great size. I had the beet salad and added chicken. It was honestly the best beet salad I have ever had. They do not cut corners on ingredients and everything tasted very fresh. This place is a gem and I plan on returning every Miami trip I take!

Rina Geppert

It’s on the 2nd Floor in a residential building but by far the best value for money in this area. We had the beet and the thai salad and both were delicious for $11/14. Beer=$6. Very friendly staff.

We have been going to Lola for the past four years for Mother's Days, Birthdays and Graduation Dinners or any excuse we can find to celebrate the food and service has always been on point the atmosphere is always great the decor is also quite lovely.
