One of the best restaurants I’ve ever visited. No exaggeration. Such a great menu and great flavors. Breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner, you can’t go wrong.

Went here for breakfast and had some good Eggs Benedict. Can’t go for the full five stars, however, because it was way overpriced. That just may be Seattle though...

The food is okay but definitely not worth the price. I was really hoping to enjoy this place but it just didn't work out. I was served raw donuts, my toast was so hard it hurt my mouth to eat and the bill was outrageous. They could definitely improve the quality of they are going to charge me so much.

Lola is my favorite breakfast place in Seattle. Make reservations on the weekends. Favorites include the basic breakfast, eggs Benedict, seasonal scrambles, pancakes, sausage, bacon, and house made donuts. So pretty much everything....they smashed potatoes ares amazingly tasty. Somehow Tom Douglas elevates typical breakfast fare to a whole new level. This is the place I bring out-of-towners or guests for breakfast.

If you're in Seattle then paying a visit to one of Tom Douglas' restaurants is imperative. This is my personal favorite, the Greek/Mediterranean tapas are phenomenal and perfect for sharing.

I always order the pita bread/spread sampler and warm, fresh donuts (of course!) for dessert!

After being a bit digestively done-in by the lovely Lark from the night before, I stuck to a toned-down but still delicious breakfast at Lola's. Our waiter was highly disappointed that we didn't order the mini donuts until I mentioned that we had already had them at Lola's sister restaurant, Dahlia Lounge. I had the steel cut oatmeal with flax seeds and preserves with sugared almonds and maple syrup, followed by the kalamata fig and lemon scone, which were all very good. My friends, similarly digestively inclined, ordered the Greek yogurt, house granola and fresh fruit, which looked truly gorgeous.

Very friendly service at the bar. Had the lamb shawarma, grilled squid, and a nice local summer ale for breakfast (east coast arrival) all recommended by the attentive bar keep and delicious. Came back later for a night cap. This place is not a typical hotel restaurant.

BREAKFAST POTATO. Cousin ordered an omlette that came with this breakfast potato and we both are still thinking about it. We think it's baked, smashed then fried. How else can this size of a potato be soft on the inside and crispy all over?

Otherwise, food is ok. Morning/brunch cocktails were ok. Service was a bit slow for a weekday morning.

**ALL ABOUT THE GRILLED OCTOPUS**

Just got off the plane and needed a quick bite and a cocktail.

LOLA SAVED THE NIGHT.

ORDERED:

GRILLED OCTOPUS - $18
Grilled octopus, roasted delicata squash, cauliflower puree, pork belly, and poached egg?
Are you kidding me?! Heavenly TASTY bites! The gooey poached egg MADE that dish!

BEE'S KNEES - $10
This was OK. I would have given LOLA a 5 star rating, but this cocktail was weak sauce. Too much sugar and not enough gin.

One dish and one cocktail = $30 wasn't exactly business-solo-cheap, but hey, it was worthy.

My bartender, Darren, was marvelous and attentive. Not pushy, kept filling up my water glass.

RECOMMEND for a late-night bite before midnight. Skip the Bee's Knees. Maybe go for my second choice, the Sidecar, instead.

Lamb shank was probably the best thing I've eaten in my life! Not even playing. Lamb is not something I eat all the time or my favored meat but this was absolutely delicious and hearty. It tasted more like pork. Pricey restaurant but the shank is worth every penny

Another beautiful Tom Douglas creation. My favorite is the falafel wrap but it's not served every day, and the chef has actually made it for me when it's not even available on the menu. Now that's what I call service. This food is amazing and it's can the menu is continually change to keep fresh local food in the restaurant

I was somewhat disappointed by this place because it was so well rated and so well talked about by a friend. Came here for their brunch / lunch menu and got some breakfast items and some lunch items. Mainly tasted the lamb skewers and the lamb burger that was so well raved, and the bf had some breakfast items along with their sampler dip.

The only thing I honestly enjoyed was their sampler dip because they have the most delicious pita bread I've ever tasted. I'm sure they use like one stick of butter in each wedge but I don't care its soooo good. They have 7 different kinds of spreads and they're all pretty good but the hummus is probably their best. yogurt being second!

The lamb burger I got was extremely dry and tasted odd and not really like what I expected it to taste like. The lamb skewers were just okay, like they were good but needed tons of yogurt sauce to taste great like they should. The oatmeal was good (from their brunch menu) but their innovations on Greek food was mostly lost in all the nifty little presentations they tried to do. I may come back in the future for breakfast items / brunch items only or just buy their dip but I would not stay for lunch or dinner.

Lola is an incredible Greek restaurant that is open for breakfast lunch or dinner. My favorite item on the menu are these yummy yummy donuts. They're made to order - they are so light - and served warm with vanilla mascarpone and rhubarb jam on the side. Heaven!!!

The best eggs Benedict I have ever had. I wanted to also try the donuts, so the server suggested a half order of the eggs benedict and an order of donuts. The perfect breakfast.
