The good: Good flamenco singer, guitar player and percussionist. Good Spanish food. Slow but attentive service. Great ambiance. The not so good: A handful of parking spaces, you will have to go around the block to find where to park. It is a small restaurant with a lot of small tables so handling plates and glasses can be a challenge... More

Thursdays at Lola's is like coming home to a family with great ambiance, food and the singing of Onelio! The best food too. The lamb, beef and tapas especially the octopus are a delish delight. The garlic soup is heavenly. The wine list is extensive and well priced. We had R+ Ribera del Duero. Very good. Go to Lola's and... More

This tiny restaurant, and I mean tiny, is a little hidden gem. I went for a birthday celebration on a Friday night and it was a blast. Yes, it is mainly an older crowd (65+) but that did not stop us from having a great time! They have a live flamenco trio that is outstanding and really got everyone up... More

Very cozy place not to big but warm. Food is good so are the tapas. Try Cod fish and/or Lacon (shoulder of pork) those are to me the best dishes. The Flamenco Show is marvelous, very good singer and well accomplished trio. The wine by the bottle has a moderate price. I have been there for lunch also, the prices... More

After seeing great reviews on yelp I decide to go with my son and husband. Location lacks parking space, furniture can be upgraded, service needs improvement but the food was great. Pricey for the location but the food was worth it. The Octopus in Olive oil is what i recommend for appetizer. Very good!

My favorite city in the world is Madrid. I loved Lola's Gourmet for the ambiance, the food and the service. It felt like I was back in Madrid. I went on a Thursday night with 9 of my Friends. I had the pulpo a la Gallega, cheese plate and lots of great wine. We were entertained by a fabulous singer... More

Reservations are a must in this small strip-mall restaurant. You feel like you stepped right inside a restaurant in Spain (actually, it'll help you if you actually speak Spanish). The food is tapas and it's all delicious. We started with their ham, chorizo and bread board, and had the grilled octopus and fish special for the main dishes. The octopus... More
