Not very impressed

The food is good but inconsistent. I ate there 6-7 times and had mostly good food, mostly good service always treated poorly by owner. The location is awesome and because of it, the quailty of the restaurant can be overlooked.

We enjoyed one of the best meals of our 2 week trip here! The food is spectacular with something for everyone. The service was impeccable with just the perfect amount of attention. But the topper is the setting! Located on the beautiful North Shore of Oahu @ The Turtle Bay Resort it has an open air dining area right on... More

Couldn't get closer to the beach than Ola's as it's actually on the beach. Service is warm and friendly. View, phenomenal and untrafficked compared to over crowded Waikiki but it is a 45 min drive sans traffic from downtown Honolulu en route to the North Shore and north of Polynesian Culture Center.

Great location right on the beach. Unfortunately we visited on Valentine's Weekend and the menu was very limited for dinner. We had a much better experience for lunch and would recommend Ola for lunch over dinner. Good food and drinks, the service at table was slow and painful, though the welcome was excellent.

We stopped here for a visit to the beach, walk and a drink. The view was outstanding and can't be beat. The walk was also great, picture taking perfection. The drinks were tasty but very pricy, but the view was worth it. Our waitress had one table, ours, yet we were cramping her style and interrupting her "work". It was... More

Good food and good Mai Tais and RIGHT on the beach, as in sand in your toes. I had lunch there twice, but did not go for dinner.

We were on our honeymoon and found this gem on the the beach at Turtle Bay...Ola's. The food was amazing with scallops as big as my hands and amazing prawns and fresh fish...the cocktails weren't bad too ;) found the staff so great down there and welcoming, we became regulars at the bar on our 7 day trip.

No one goes to Hawaii to dine in a room without an ocean view, no matter how well appointed the room. Ola is located on the sand with the rhythm of the waves as the soundtrack that you dine to. Turtle bay is an idyllic place to stay...wonderfully maintained...but I generally prefer the abundant supply of colorful local food trucks... More

We have dined at Ola many times and decided to stop on our way around the island with our friends from the Bay Area. Our friend ordered a Mojito and our server suggested the special Mango Mojito. He responded with just a regular one. She came back to let him know the bartender had used all of the mint to... More

What used to be a nice retreat to stop by for lunch on a drive through the North Shore has turned into a disappointment on many levels. This was always my stop when I had family and friends in town and we made the drive around the island. The oceanfront views are perfect while you sipped cocktails with sand under... More
