Tremont is a restaurant oasis and Lava Lounge is the hidden gem in this neighborhood. The food is insanely good. They have a regular menu with an always rotating specials section that provides a good selection of edibles. The food is interesting and unique, but always tasty to the palate. My girlfriend and I, being locals, frequent Lava once a... More

Dark crimson and brick, unique light fixtures casting a dim glow in a space small enough but big enough to seat patrons at the bar or tables, eclectic paintings, a large chalk board listing specials, and an amazing room upstairs to use for private parties or events with its own bar, are all unique aspects of Lava Lounge. Entrees and... More

My wife and I went there for the first time ever with another couple.The wings were fantastic! My wife ordered pork belly tacos and they were the best tacos ever I ordered the cheeseburger with pork belly it was unbelievably great along with some unique fries. This place is the reason I love trying new places

Service was slow, the fryer was on the blink so we couldn't order anything fried, and was overcharged for my drink. Atmosphere is dark and cold. Food was so-so. We were referred here by the host at their sister restaurant, Fat Cats, and was told they" had basically the same food." I don't think that was the case, though. The... More

Stopped here for drinks and appetizers...the lumpia and the hummus was good. Did not like my cocktail, but the bartender quickly replaced it when I asked. I prefer a quieter more reserved atmosphere.

The Lava Lounge is a nice, small bar in the Tremont neighborhood. As a visitor from the East Coast, we have a lot of these places around that's sort of dive-y with weird "art" on red walls. Not your typical old fashioned Midwest bar. We went with our Cleveland friends on a weekend night and left before the DJ set... More

It's always really loud in here. I didn't care much for the entrees, but the drinks are good. Great summer spot.
