This site specializes in South American dishes that have no comparison. The food is prepared perfectly and presented as a piece of art. The menu is not inexpensive, but you certainly get what you pay for. Try the tapas appetizers - you can't go wrong, and the guacamole prepared table side is to die for.

Food was good but if you like a casual meal at a good place this is not for you. The staff rushed us from the minute we got there till we left within one hour for the entire meal. Not fun no matter how good the food is.

Delicious! My friend and I went because of groupon and so happy we did!!! The food is very good and very well prepared. Drinks and desserts are also very good! The décor is very bright and inviting. It is a little expensive(you are paying for presentation) and the service is not fantastic, but willing to overlook those. Everything was so... More

We hosted a party for 28 guests. Back room is festively decorated, The staff was wonderful and very accommodating. They have a special group menu that was offered choices for every preference. Food was so spectacular, everyone just raved. Every dish was beautifully plated with great depth of flavor. Everyone enjoyed the drinks as well, and the deserts were fabulous... More

My first visit and unfortunately my last and only. While the food was not bad, it wasn't good either. I am used to enjoying significant taste impressions with latin food. Ola's food was a bit bland. Portions were a bit lacking, we all left a bit hungry . Price was one other area where I have to say, it just... More

Don't let your first impression of the strip mall deter you because once you walk into the restaurant you will be impressed. The service is wonderful and the food was amazing.

Only open a couple of weeks. Quite disorganized .Very slow service because of the kitchen and when the food appears it was actually cold. The food was not of the same quality as Orange location . They need time to get their house in order. That manager apologized but a smart one would have offered a dessert or an after... More

Great food and service. It's location in a strip mall is a deterrent but don't let it stop you...this place is the real deal. We have been here a few times and it is always excellent. This time we went at 7:30 on a Saturday night (do make a reservation). The sun dried tomato tapenade that they serve with bread... More
