    Excellent authentic Spanish tapas. We were very impressed with every dish we ordered (crispy artichokes, Tuna Gilda and Octupus were all superb). Would definitely come back! Also nice atmosphere, and not too loud, excellent service too.

    Lola was the perfect date night spot. We sat at the bar and shared tapas. The bar tender was friendly, drinks were great and the food was delicious. Loved the crispy artichoke and ceviche. The interior was simple, clean, chic and modern. Would definitely recommend Lola!

    Food was good, but not anything spectacular. We got the manchego plate, ceviche, beef pringa, pork shank, and lamb. My favorite was the ceviche. The tall ceiling made it feel spacious, but the space felt like it lacked decor. The ambiance was okay, but the service was great.

    A very different type of place to eat. They serve tapas, plates of different types of food that the table shares. This way, you get to try just about everything on the menu. We had a wonderful waitress who kept the dishes coming at regular intervals. It gets quite loud as the place fills up but overall was a great experience.

    Excellent food that reminded me not of an American take on Mediterranean food, but rather an authentic experience on the Ionian Sea. Both simple and complex at the same time, it was a remarkable experience at an affordable price point.

    The food taste and blend of flavors was very good with nice presentation. The charcuterie board, octopus, crispy artichokes, tuna, and shrimp ceviche were our favorites. Cocktail menu was lacking. Service was very attentive.

    It’s hard to remember a time when 4 people who had never been to a restaurant before loved absolutely everything about it and immediately started making plans to return but that is what happened here. Impeccable, knowledgeable service; terrific wine and cocktail list including some nice mocktails and we loved the menu. Such a fun experience to try and share lots of items. If I had to pick a favorite I would say.. everything! The eggplant and trout dips were amazing, ceviche was so beautiful that I cannot believe we didn’t take photos, artichokes were so delicious we had to put in a second order. We didn’t try the full size entrees but they all looked good and sadly did not leave room for dessert. Next time!

    Our service and the atmosphere was great but the food lacked flavor and spice. There are loads of mediterranean restaurants in Nashville. Our meal was alright but I won't be returning with better options at similar price points.

    First visit. Loved it. Absolutely a return for us. Beef pringa montadita was the star for me. So good i spent the night at home researching its origens and history. Yup- that good. Wifes favorite was the Tuna Gildas and i cant fault her that opinion. We almost ordered a second as soon as we finished. Just a flavorful bite. Octopus cooked perfect and just melted in your mouth. Also got the croquetas, artichokes, and papas bravas. All worth a mention as great, but just a notch below our favorites. Sat at the bar and had Guy take care of us. He put the meal over the top for us. Ran through everything on the menu, gave great recommendations and timed out the plates so we werent overcrowded with plates but still not just sitting and waiting for another plate to share. If you get either great food or great service you come away content but when you get both like we did at Lola last week its just a real experience. One we will come back for. Thanks Guy. And thanks chefs for a great date night.
