Food is very average and over priced. Service was slow albeit friendly. Would suggest you skip this and head next door to Plaka if you want to stay in the Times Square area.

My family and I had lunch here. Great location. Friendly staff. Live music at lunch. I asked the waiter what to have and he said any of the burritos, so that is what I did! It seriously was delicious!! We had fun, enjoyed the people watching and the music and our lunch. I recommend this restaurant for a casual, fun... More

Right in Times Square! Great tacos, good portion size, fast service and good atmosphere. The only minus is they need to have more salsa :)

We met our friends at La Ola's bar one afternoon for a great time. The drink menu is extensive and our bartenders, Jeremy & Dan, were very informative about the cocktails. Their recommendations were spot on! We enjoyed the live entertainment as well.

Was in FMB on Christmas Day and wanted some food on the evening, naturally many places were not open. We were walking around and took a look at the menu in La Ola, it was mainly Mexican but did have some non Mexican dishes such as Filet Mignon. We went in with low expectations and were just looking for some... More

Live music, great food, locals and tourists having fun! Enjoyed tacos and fabulous nachos while listening to great classic rock. Can't find anything better than that!

We stumbled across this place late on a Monday evening in Dec. from start to finish the service was excellent. Shrimp tacos were totally stuffed with shrimp and the mix with the mango so tasty. With large (and I mean large) glasses of wine for $5 this place is a must. They have live music and patio heaters and blankets.

The food was bad. Over cooked and small portions. Loud music witch was fine but the singer was awful. Week drinks and small selection of beer and drinks. Eat next door. It's much better.
