My wife and I introduced friends to Spanish dining at Ole' Tapas on Saturday evening. We, of course, knew what the dining experience would be like. Our friends, who had never had tapas before, were charmed by the meal and very impressed with the quality of the food. We all enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. We had Sangria, a range of tapas... More

My husband and I took our son here to celebrate his birthday. He had been here with his Spanish Club and remembered the food as being very good, so we took the drive down from PA to check it out. We were greeted immediately and had no wait for our table. We were seated with server Juan, who was really... More

I recently had dinner with friends at Ole Tapas Lounge & Restaurant and the experience was quite memorable.The restaurant has a casual yet cozy atmosphere. Being a Spaniard, I normally frown upon going to any "tapas" place in the US because they usually serve Mexican food priced (overpriced) as tapas. However, the tapas at this restaurant were delicious, even with... More

Always drive by this place daily but never stopped here until the other night. Tapas is like appetizers. You choose a few and they bring them out as you finish each one. Every dish we tried was delicious. We made sure to have a seafood, vegetable and meat dish. Each selection was individually prepared by the chef so it was... More

You can choose from many different small plates which are prepared in an authentic Spanish style. I love the Gaspacho which is a delicious cold soup made from fire roasted tomatoes and cucumbers. It is both healthy and delicious. I love the dishes with chorizos, which are Spanish sausages and the steak with chimmichurra sauce. They have outstanding vegetarian dishes... More

Love this place! A huge selection of unique and tasty tapas, reasonably priced. Also, a great selection of entrees if you care to go that route. Service was friendly. A fun night.

Do not let the strip mall location put you off. You open the door to a lovely elegant restaurant. Wonderful ambience, quiet, and you can linger and enjoy. Fabulous selection of tapas redolent of the flavors of Spain. The paella is big enough to serve many more than the two to three people suggested. Tastes even better reheated at home... More

My friend and I had a fantastic lunch at Ole Tapas Lounge & Restaurant. The restaurant is reminiscent of Span and the staff are welcoming and friendly. Our server, Casey, was wonderful - knowledgeable about the food and wine choices and able to pace the meal to perfection. The food itself was delicious. We had the serrano ham, mushrooms, chicken...
