Looking for great restaurant in Hallendale or Hollywood area
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?
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.
