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.

The bacon wrapped dates and skirt steak are a few of my favorites, but their octopus is the real winner!”

We visited Lola G on a Friday evening so this place was packed and the wait was over 30 minutes. Let me tell you, that wait was well worth it...the food and atmosphere did not disappoint. Our meal started out with the Bacon covered dates,...More

First, if you are looking for tapas in the pure Spanish sense, this place is not that place. But, if you want great choices of small plates with Latin inspiration, this is that place. The feel is casual, and hip. The wines and beer choices...More
