I recently went to Hola for valentines dinner and the four of us in our party were all beyond let down. I have been to many restaurants as well as tapas in which the concept is genius. However this tapas was unsuccessful. Out of the 8 small plates we ordered only 2 were memorable and worth talking about.The calamari was extremely tender and the dipping sauces complimented the dish well. We also ordered the fried green beans which were surprisingly addicting and a great starter. Then from there it went downhill with the remaining plates. We ordered the following, the stuffed swordfish, the avocado with queso fresco, Potato torta w/romesco sauce,
Saffron rice croquette w/romesco sauce & manchego, Chicken empanadas w/corn & black beans, Coffee & Chipotle rubbed steak w/ fried potato wedges and the meatballs. I will elaborate on a few, the saffron rice dish was served warm with the cold romesco sauce which had a grainy texture reddish orange in color and tasted disgusting. This was upsetting as it ruined two of our dishes. The rice balls were dry as well. The chicken empanadas honestly looked frozen and tasted even worse than they looked. The steak was burnt on the outside and was a bit chewy, I didn't taste the chipotle rub whatsoever. The manchego and saffron sauce that coated the meatballs was horrendous, I am a huge fan of manchego however this sauce fell short. We ordered two desserts hoping for something sweet to offset the bad tastes left in our mouths. We got the churros which were just okay and what was on special the strawberry w sweet cream flatbread which was better than the churros. Overall for a successful environment with creative Spanish style dishes everything was extremely unsuccessful. I honestly haven't tasted such poor quality food in a long time and like I said I attend many restaurants appeasing to all palates. However if you do happen to go I suggest calamari the green beans and possibly a flatbread. GO TO LOCO In Easton instead the most delicious food I've had in a while.
