I thought Lola's Would be Better...

After living on Esplanade for the last 5 years, my boyfriend and I went to Lola's for dinner tonight. It was okay, at least the antipasto plate, crabmeat tropical and bread with garlic spread were good. The paella, seafood for me, meat for my boyfriend, was so-so, the seafood with an overwhelmingly fishy taste and tough seafood, including dry mussels, small, dry shrimp, etc. Oh well, the atmosphere was good but when we tried to pay for the 70-some dollar check with a hundred dollar bill we were told that it would be a while before we could get change as their bank is small. We payed with a check instead but come on, this place is cash only, they should probably be prepared for people paying with, uh, cash... Also, we had to wait for our sangria while our server ran to the neighboring store to buy pens, weird. By the way I work as a server at two restaurants and my boyfriend is a chef, so I am not too fussy. Just thought it would be more exceptional I gues... thoughts?
