Nachos weren't good. Steak sandwich had uncooked onions. Margarita was good & singer was good! He interacted with audience but sang country western music, not what u expect from Mexican restaurant.

We so enjoyed the menu and atmosphere of eating al fresco. They are quite accommodating in customizing dishes--mine a "burrito salad" was delicious. I'd definitely go again.

We stopped by many times before - this time with our little dog. Service is always friendly and quick. We love the flat bread(s) - tried quite a few. Drinks are OK - just get the extra floater (makes a big difference). Our dog got her own water bowl and loved the flat bread we shared with her (how about... More

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...
