The food was great, very nicely presented and it was an atmosphere of being in a friendly South American restaurant. Felt like we were on vacation. The Margarita I had was excellent, strong but delicious! The bar is large and I believe they are known for their drinks. Very clean and a very nice staff. The one in Bridgeport wax... More

Terrible place. Service is the worse! Never going back there again! Had to leave after 1:30 with no food! Waited 40 minutes for a soda!They simply don't care about their customers.

The moment I stepped foot in Ola this past Saturday night I knew it was the place for me! It was busy, great music, and everyone seamed to be having a great time. I met a friend for dinner. We shared 4 tapas and we didn't have room for dessert. Tuna tacos, salmon ceviche, guacamole, and octopus all very tasty.... More

This is a favorite spot to enjoy a leisurely meal with friends. So many tasty tapas to share! The drinks are very well made--the house mojito is usually my first choice. The atmosphere is tastefully festive. The service is first-rate. Ola tops the many Latin/Caribbean tapas options in the New Haven area.

The food is the attraction. The tapas are excellent. We have gone here several times, by ourselves and with friends. We had several kind of tacos and they were all good. Nice colorful presentation. A wide selection of meat, seafood and vegetables. The clams were good. So was the pulled pork. Decent portion sizes for tapas. Decor is nothing special... More

I have eaten here a half dozen times and have sent many out-of-town consultants here for dinner. No one has complained. Quite the contrary; they rave about the place. Not sure exactly what to call it, be it influenced by Latin, Caribbean, Bahamian, and coupled with whatever 'Fusion' might mean to you. What is never lacking here is, really fresh... More

My daughter took me to Ola's last night for my birthday. It was my first visit. It was wonderful. The service and the food was wonderful. I would recommend Ola's to anyone.
