This was my second experience at Lola's. My first time was wonderful and I was eager to return. I arrived at about 8 pm today with my parents for my birthday dinner. The place was pretty busy but there were two empty tables for two people. We asked the Coordinator, Courtney, if we could be seated at one of the empty tables by either joining the two or by pulling up a chair. She informed us that they don't have a policy that allows that because of concerns about space and that we would have to wait for a bigger table. After sitting outside for about 15 minutes, we were seated inside. About 45 minutes into our meal, as we are about to receive our entree dishes, we see a crowd of six white women come into the restaurant. They were not asked to wait; in fact, two two-people tables were put together and two chairs from other tables pulled to accommodate all members of their party, despite the previous claim by Courtney that they had no such policy. As we were sitting next to this table, we were appalled by the blatant discrimination. We asked to speak to the manager, which was Courtney, and she denied that she had said that it was against their policy. In fact, she was quite hostile and did not offer any apology. Needless to say, I will never eat here again after experiencing such obvious racism, which is quite disappointing because the food here is delicious, and I will be filing a formal complaint.

Stopped in for my birthday dinner. Dizzy server made us feel so unwelcome. Don't waste your time.

Wife and I went, she had paella with seafood and I had it with meat, we shared. Found both to be really delicious, and the sangria was very good. My chief complaint is about the service...inattentive, uninterested (reading a magazine most of the time towards back of restaurant), unsmiling. Older blonde woman with attitude or maybe a bad night. Rest of the staff seemed ok, younger and more enthusiastic. Overall worth a look. Slightly on the pricy side, better if 2 people share a skillet of something for two. Kinda comical that they charge you for the bread they bring out.

Pros: Cozy and colorful atmosphere. Great paella, ceviche, sangria. BYOB w/o corking fee (but get the sangria). Cons: No reservations and crowded on weekend nights, but understandable for such a small restaurant. Everything tastes so good that the bill adds up very quickly. The only real annoyance is that they accept CASH only. I had a bill of $100 for a party of 4 and a bill of $230 for a party of 6. For their prices a credit card machine would be a huge convenience.
