I've been to Lolita twice now and there have been ups and downs. I find that the apps, drinks, and sides are amazing, but the entrees tend to leave me underwhelmed. They're by no means bad, but just don't live up to the other menu...More

Michael Symon's restaurant. I had fried pig's tail, octopus, and chicken liver and they were all phenomenal!! I never had pig's tail and chicken liver ever in my life, and they were absolutely delicious. If I am in Cleveland again, I will definitely revisit this...More

We stopped by Lolita's after a work meeting. The place has a fun, funky cool vibe without being in your face hipster. The Grilled Octopus,Charred Eggplant and Ceviche were great for starters. We also ordered some cured meats and cheeses and shared the Pea Cannelloni...More

Lolita still delivers creative, well prepared American cuisine, a well selected wine list, and professional service at an affordable price. The grilled octopus was moist and slightly charred, the pizza finger-licking good, and the pasta with lamb and tomatoes well balanced. Yum.

I have been to Lolita twice, while at the Cleveland Clinic. Your biggest problem will be, deciding what to order. All of our choices were superb. Our GPS took us through a construction zone and one way industrial streets. Don't let that scare you, when...More

We looked forward to visiting this restaurant for months. When we arrived they asked if we had a reservation, We didn't. I dreaded being turned away or denied seating for a long time. Wrong. We were seated immediately. The service is excellent. Very personable wait...More

finally tried the popular funky Lolita. Loved the atmosphere n decor; although our weekday night was very noisy due to a large party next to us. It made our conversation difficult. The service was outstanding with great cocktails. We were not fans of the eggplant...More
