Watching Iron Chef Michael Symon compete (and rack up the wins) on Food Network and do his thing on The Chew, you very quickly get the sense that this Cleveland-born chef has the cooking chops to back up the air time. His flagship restaurant Lola (relocated from its original Tremont location to downtown Cleveland, and helmed by executive chef Joe Swan) is not a good restaurant, it’s a great one. You can expect the meat-centric fare that Symon is best-known for (bone marrow, beef cheek pierogi, venison, pork shank, you get the idea), but it’s all served with a delicate touch. Take for example, a fried pig’s ear and watermelon summer salad offered on a tasting menu a few years ago — memories still linger. -- Arthur Bovino

Great food, great service... Tried Lamb Heart for the first time, never thought I'd eat something like that, but am so glad I ventured outside of the box
We got the Poke for appetizer. It was AMAZING!!

Sorry but the beef cheek pierogies here do not compare to the cheese pierogies at the wonder bar two doors down !!!

Omigod best thing I ever ate was here.

The Beef Cheek Pierogi on the appetizer section is so ridiculously good that i'd just get three orders of it for my meal. Someone tell Symon to up the portions and serve it as an entree.

Michael Symon is seriously amazing. The beef cheek pierogies are awesome, as is the pork chop with cheesy polenta and the 6 a.m. Special.
