Looking for great restaurant in Hallendale or Hollywood area
Hollywood Prime has a dark, elegant atmosphere; my husband and I thought our meal here was absolutely delicious. But, it is very typical of a top-rated steakhouse, no real surprises or unique offerings here.
If you try Lola's on Harrison, I'd suggest stopping in first for a glass of wine at the wine bar across the street. The atmosphere is great and the owners are fun and friendly. Not far from Lola's is a Spanish restaurant 'La Barraca'. They have paella and tapas; the food is good, the owners/staff are warm and friendly and will help you in your food selection.
Overall, we've found it difficult to find great food in the Hollywood/Hallandale area; but you wouldn't have to go far outside this area to find a great restaurant.
Do not agree with Lola's. Went there like three weeks ago excited to try this new restaurant after all the great reviews, but I'm sadly to report that I was very dissapointed.
The service was slow, we ordered bread because the food was taking long - and they did not bring any when we sat down -, so they brought a dry and old bread.
We ordered the half portion of noquis to start, very generous portion and that was the only good plate we had during our dinner. Then I had a hanger steak with blue cheese on top, the steak was hard and flavorless. A friend had the swordfish and he said not to even ask how his food was....
I agree that the menu items looked delicious, but the food we tried we did not like. Maybe we did not order their strong items?
