Ola used to be our favorite place to dine for special occasions. We were terribly disappointed at our last visit for our anniversary. We ordered salmon ceviche and lobster enchiladas for appetizers. The ceviche was served with a produce tag inside! It was repulsive. When we told the staff, all they could say was "sorry" and offer use a new... More

As local residents who have been here numerous times I feel compelled to write this review after posting one a few years ago. You can't beat Ola for food quality at a reasonable price anywhere around. This restaurant in NYC would charge double the prices. The guy who compared it to TGIF is out of his mind to even make...

Dinner with my spouse this week. The décor is interesting but no soft surfaces to reduce the noise volume and it was only 2/3 full. Service was excellent. Empanadas Carna were good but slightly over cooked. I had the ribs and they were not falling off the bone tender but edible and with a ;good salsa. My spouse had the... More

I notice that Ola is the highest rated restaurant in Orange, CT. View that either as an indication of the overall quality of restaurants between Milford and New Haven, or as an opportunity for an entrepreneur. Ola is about the presentation of food. I had a Chilean Sea Bass, which was OK but does not compare with what Scribner's offers... More

A group of four of us came here for a 7pm reservation because it was all they had for the evening. It was interesting that it was the time they gave us because we were literally the only people in the restaurant outside of the people sitting at the bar for a good 45 minutes. A few other couples and... More

The food is delicious. I especially love the paella dishes.I always have a mojito and there are several different ones to choose from. The service is excellent and everyone is very friendly. The restaurant itself has a very nice atmosphere. The whole experience has been very enjoyable.

This was the third time I/we've eaten at Ola. I have pummeled it elsewhere for it's slow and shoddy service. Last night was not much different with service being pretty slow for a Thursday night when they were not at all full. They did have a bit of a rush but that does not excuse the beginning or end of...

This will be your new favorite restaurant like it has be come ours! Servers, experienced and attentive. Food is well prepared, fresh and well paced. Everything comes out when it is supposed to. Signature cocktails are yummy too, make reservations because this place is busy! Busy place = Happy Patrons!
