Been to Ola several times. Lovely atmosphere - good food and service. That said, my perception is just a bit on the pricey side (I think we've used a Living Social or Groupon on each of our visits).

The food was delicious, and the presentation was amazing. the portion was very good, not too much, not to little. It was perfect. The service was very good and attentive. the food was so full of flavor. It was a little more expensive then I had anticipated, but the food was so good it was worth it. I would definitely... More

My wife and my friends wife over came the full moon and they're ebb and flow of emotions to enjoy another great meal at Ola! We highly recommend it.

Visited Ola this past Saturday night. There were four in our party. We all love Latin food. Service was good, in the beginning. They brought a drink menu and didn't bring the regular menu until after we ordered drinks. A lot of specialty drinks. We had very good Margaritas. We ordered table side guacamole. All the ingredients came in one... More

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.
