Ate lunch here for the umpteenth time and just realized I had never reviewed the place. Lola is wonderful. Always solid on quality and loaded with great flavors. This time we both started with a cup of tomato basil and lentil soup--very tangy and scrumptious. Then we both had entree salads, which came packed with tangy shrimp, feta cheese, pickled... More

The dining room is small and fun. Great bartender with inventive tasty drinks. The food is fantastic and arguably the best in town. Only downside is for those of you that need your space. The tables are close and making new friends is very possible.

Massive dish of red beans, andouille and rice with a chunk of sourdough bread and a green salad for $10 is a great bargain. And very tasty, too.

Lola is one of just a handful of Northshore restaurants that are striving to consistently deliver original in-house chef inspired dishes that are a departure from what most consider 'Louisiana' cuisine, like the typical fried seafood dishes you'll find at most local restaurants, or the pastas soaked in cream-based sauces. Along with menu regulars, diners will be treated to daily... More

Great for a healthy lunch. Don't miss the Lola Salad and the Hummingbird Cake! You do have to stand in line to make your order but you are then served at your table.

So this place is in an old train depot and it's a cool, although smallish, place. The server was very attentive but the food was not great. The cheese board appetizer was quite good with a very nice variety - but the server did not even explain what all was on it so we played the guessing game. The Lousiana... More
