Food is not the same, quality has gone down, and the menu is limited.
Had a 4pm reservation for nearly a week. Showed up and waited 35 mins to be seated. Only had 2 in our party. A walk-up got a table for 2. Another reservation for a table for 2 at 4:15pm. Was not offered an explanation. Was not offered seating inside. Was not checked on once. Usually I would chalk this up as one bad incident but that was the last time I was at Lolita. So after the second time with horrible service, I had to write this. Not sure what’s going on there but the service has dipped to unacceptable levels and I can’t go back again.
We had a great time! The food was so good and came out so fast!
great for a chill date. delicious food and drinks
Solo late evening dinner on business trip. Some COVID restrictions in effect. Had the 3 for $33 special: chips & guac, chicken roja enchiladas and substituted tres leches for tiramisu for $2 upcharge. Drink was a very tasty blood orange margarita on the rocks. Dessert was a little dry, otherwise meal was very good.
Great place to eat!
My actual waitress was wonderful, but the hostess was trash. She was snarky and acted like she didn’t want to accommodate us. Maybe she was having a bad day, but my guest and I didn’t do anything to her.
The booths are better than the side tables, they don’t make sense to have someone directly on the sidewalk when folks are walking by and poses a safety risk.
Food was delicious. I would go back as long as that hostess isn’t there.
Excellent time, good and service is always amazing.
Absolutely amazing! Service was great!
Chicken sandwich was eh, but those fresh cut shoestring fries were amazing! Great drinks as always and the outdoor seating was semi enclosed and heated. Me and my fiance love it here and will always come back🖤🖤🖤
Margaritas were excellent and we really enjoyed our fish tacos. Alcohol offerings a bit limited at brunch (no brunch drinks, mimosas, etc.) Service was attentive and polite, but a bit cold.
Too cold outside
They wouldn’t give us one of the covered areas outside, said they were reserved. At least two of them went unfilled the entire time we were there.
Delicious food, great service staff, and lovely location. I highly recommend their guac with plantain and taro chips. Their enchiladas are to die for.
Love this place!!!
Lolita doesn't compare to the quality of El Vez. I was really hoping to like this restaurant, but the food quality and the service were so bad I will not be going back.
drinks were yumm and the food was just okay
Great food very reasonable pricing as well. nice outdoor space
Limited food/drink menu. Not our best experience there.
food was so delicious!! Drinks were good, but a bit skimpy.
Food, drinks and service are always outstanding. It is one of my favorite places in the city. Highly recommend.
Hands down, BEST HEATED CHALET in the city so far. I didn’t need to eat with my winter gear on - it was downright COZY, and the heat made the new wood smell like a sauna. It was divine. Also great margs and food with lovely service. ⭐️
Best tacos and margaritas!
Can’t wait to eat in - because Uber makes the experience just okay!
The mango guacamole was fabulous however the entrees, specifically the meals with chicken were not very good. The texture and quality of the chicken tasted odd in the chicken enchiladas and chicken tacos, making it inedible.
The staff made our outdoor dining experience safe and welcoming. The food came out hot and delicious as usual! We had an order of the mango quac that was fresh and flavorful, and then we split the fish tacos and the short rib tacos - both were excellent!
Took my so. For his birthday. Best short rib bat his!
Was a little disappointed in our visit. Had to ask (twice) for water. Then cups for the water.
Food is very good although black beans were bland everything else was delicious.
Unfortunately, two tables down (outside) engaged a seemingly homeless gentleman who was enjoying the attention and was quite loud. No one from the establishment asked him to move along.
Love this place so will definitely go back but was not the best experience.
I’ve been wanting Lolita’s, to try the birria tacos, for months! It was well worth the wait!! The spice was just right. We will be back for more!
Food was cold - Enchiladas are known for being hot there were seating around fir quite a while prior to being served
Rice and beans pre made temperature not acceptable
Service not as usual lacking quality on several areas
Sara was an absolute charm! Definitely will come back just to see her!
Did an excellent job for being limited to outside dining due to Covid .. 10 out of 10 would dine again - thanks for a wonderful night :)
Great outdoor dining visit at Lolita. Our server was great, on top of empty drinks and quick service. The food seemed semi prepared and not as good as on prior trips, but we are eager to continue supporting our local places! We'll be back again.
It was ok, I’ve been to way better Mexican restaurants.
The food was unexpectedly bad. We got the fish tacos, and the fish literally looked like a fried fish stick that just came out of the freezer. It was a gross block of what seemed like fake fish. The chips and guac were good, but that is not hard to make well. The margaritas tasted good, but they were not strong. We got a pitcher and neither of us left feeling it at all. The ambiance was fine, but I would not recommend Lolita.
Great spot outside, heat lamps were up and spicy margaritas made for a pleasant night out.
Blood orange margarita was amazing! Pork carnitas nachos were delicious!
Good food but not consistent. Great Margs!
Birria tacos were outrageous. Margaritas were excellent. The restaurant did an amazing job trying to make the experience wonderful even with the restrictions.
Not a good experience at all. Their service was bad
Outside dining, a lot of great energy and fun! Great service. Hostess was a flake, but service was awesome, other guests awesome and food was great.
Tasty Tacos, but not the best Mexican food in Philly. Chips/Salsa and Margaritas were just ok.
