Pros: excellent ambiance, lovely view of the lake, attentive service. Cons: menu reads better than it tastes. Special grilled calamari appetizer was very bland. Pear salad needs fresh raw pears and a more assertive dressing. Veal scallopini ok not memorable. Sous chef was cooking that night so food might be better prepared when regular chef is on.

We eat at Lola's several times a year over 13 years and have enjoyed it every time. It is about a 45 minute drive but well worth it for us. The service is always very good also. The scallops and tuna are a must. I am not a vegetarian but on our last visit decided on a dish in this... More

We were impressed with so many of the touches that restaurants rarely provide anymore - the surroundings, the amazing chefs, the beautiful place settings, etc. The limited menu was full of nothing but delicious choices - I have never had a chicken more beautifully prepared. My husband had shrimp cooked perfectly with fresh pasta that he loved as well. The... More

This restaurant always delivers the freshest dishes with a great wine selection. Going back for my Birthday celebration soon! Love the setting with outdoor seating watching the sun over Elkhart Lake. Osthoff Resort staff is always so friendly too!

This place is really special. It has an atmosphere to make it a special dinner. Food was fantastic. One night I sat in the round window by the bar as it snowed. I felt like I was in a snow globe. A real treat

Inattentive and amateurish service. We had a 5pm dinner reservation and we ordered by 5:10. Our entrees arrived at 6:20. Food was OK for price. The bread was excellent. We liked the decor though given poor service and OK food we probably will not return.
