Eggs Florentine!!

The brunch menu at Ovelia is different from the many other brunch menus I've seen. The items have a Greek flare and are quite delicious. I ordered the Eggs Florentine which was surprisingly good. Even the person next to me asked what I had ordered. The hostess was kind and seated us quickly. The... read more

I love Ovelia and come here often for brunch. It's a really cute place to take folks who are visiting from out of town. Try to sit outside in good weather. My reliable trio of favorite brunches are: the Eggs Benedict, the Steak Sofrito and the pulled pork sandwich!

Where do I start, well, being a foodie, this is one of my favorite restaurants ever and anywhere. Let´s put it this way, if you find a restaurant where the cocktails are made from scratch (no mixes here), are seasonal and fresh, with premium liquor, that means they pay attention to detail and the fare should be awesome. And that... More

Something for everyone here! Vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options! I tried the Fried Feta cubes, outstanding. More like a dessert! I had the spinach pie for my entree. Hubbs had the Bifteki and calamari. Try the Doña Mariposa drink omg to die for. Desert: banana nutella crepe (yes, do it!), frozen cheesecake. Chic dining experience, we ate outdoors on... More

Enjoyed a delicious dinner last night! It happened to be restaurant week and we each got a free individual carafe of wine with our entrée. To start, I had a very good vodka cocktail and others had the red sangria and rose sangria which they loved. For apps we got the amazing feta cubes- never had these before. Fried feta... More

I had no idea what to expect when friends recommended that we meet here on a recent Friday night. I was the first one to arrive for our 7P res and since the place was fairly empty, I was able to get my choice of table. By 8P the place was packed and it was clear that everyone was enjoying... More

I always come to Ovelia for drinks because of the buzz. Really good atmosphere on Thursday nights and the weekend. Good happy hour prices and ample outdoor seating. I recommend their bloody marys. What I've experienced in terms of food was good - I remember really enjoying the moussaka. Heavy, yes, but that's how it should be. The presentation of... More

We were looking forward to Ovelia after hearing good things about the food, but were disappointed at the outcome. The service was poor. The staff seemed distracted and not concerned about providing adequate service. We were not in a rush, but had a long wait before anyone took our orders and again until the meal was served. A Bloody Mary... More
