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 week and are excited to try the new items on the specials list. There are a large number of drafts available along with a bottled beer list that is quite large for any beer aficionado. The wine list is just as well thought out as the beer selection.

Although there are other restaurants more well known in Tremont, Lava Lounge is the neighborhood's best kept secret.

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 appetizers are designed by the chef who creates masterpieces in her small kitchen. Around for years, it still seems a hidden gem in Tremont ~ and well worth the discovery time and time again each visit. Great staff, superb hand crafted drinks, great menu = an amazing time.

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 diners at Fat Cats were well dressed patrons with reservations, versus a young drinking crowd at the Lava Lounge.

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.
