The Golden Dish has reviewed Lolita.
Owners Guy (chef) and Stella (manager) Hernandez [and Neil Reiter] have assembled a great team of sous chefs with Kimmo Merronen, Cameron Fernald and Megan Roand who contribute what they do best. The result is staggeringly exquisite food served in such elegant, relaxed surroundings. It may have seemed odd to close down their popular Bar Lola to move to what seemed like compromised quarters; but instead the change brought Portland a brilliantly refined new restaurant. Sometimes geography does make a difference.
