We went here two nights in a row after dinner elsewhere. Nice bar, good drink menu, good service, live music. Open later than most other places. Friendly and quick service. Take an evening/night stroll down this pedestrian street and La Ola will catch your eye.

My wife and I were wandering through Times Square one night while on vacation and we were stopped in front of La Ola by a lady that was promoting their 12 string guitar entertainer and their food. We had already eaten but came back the next night and the same entertainer was there so when we decided to sit down... More

Had great service at the bar! I can't remember our bartenders name but he looked like Matt Damon. They had live music and we danced and danced. I laughed so hard that night. Made some new friends. Loved it!

we had originally planned on eating at the Plaka restaurant, and were greeted by an unfriendly nasty waitress, and told he had to sit out back, because we had our 14 pound Bichon frize with us, needless to say we left, and went to La Ola, excellent food, friendly wait staff, live music, they even brought out a bowl of...

Tom my server was superb. The shrimp cocktail and bacon wrapped shrimp was the best I'd had in years. Fresh and delicious. Lemon Drop martinis were fabulous and refreshing. Here the Key Lime pie is light and refreshing...not a cliche. I'll be back for sure.

This is a great cafe right off the beach at Fort Myers. It is basically an outdoor cafe. The steak tacos were amazing as was the tuna salad sandwich. We would definitely eat there again.

We enjoyed an easy evening meal before sunset at La Ola. A minute stroll and you're either on the beach or on the pier and parking was a breeze at the Lynn Hall Memorial Park (pay and display sorta deal). An easy selection of tasty food that should suit most appetites and arrived fairly quickly. It was a busy night... More

We weren't sure what to get for dinner one night, we had been several places before but wanted something different. Looking through reviews and we decided to try it out. We went with half order of nachos(huge) and the La Ola flatbread pizza. We couldn't have been more satisfied! A great change from seafood and the taste was great! Service... More
