As usual, we liked Ole a lot (and still do). It is good to be back after a year's absence!
Great time Scott made some great suggestions...
A new air filtration/purification system has been installed. What isn't new is the great service, a very nice wine list, and fantastic food. We hadn't been here for about 2 years so what a joy it was to return and find it still measures up. Bravo!
The restaurant was very clean and covid-conscious and the food was very good. I wish I could remember the name of our server because she was an absolute delight! She just could not have been more efficient or gracious. Her welcoming manner and excellent service helped make the evening a great success. PS: The red sangria was FAB!!!!
Love Ole Tapas. Service, food and wine is always exceptional.
Awesome as always. Family had a great time . Food was spectacular
Great time. Live entertainment for a modest fee. Good atmosphere and friendly staff.
Great place for first lunch out in a year. Will be back.
This place NEVER disappoints! Food and service is always outstanding! Highly recommend.
Had such a great time with my sister!
Great food and service, had fun
Had a great time!! Food is amazing!!
Delicious food and beautiful decor. The outside doesn’t reflect the beauty inside
I was not familiar with this type of Spanish-Basque type cooking. The menu, on line with iPhone, was somewhat descriptive but I needed help. The owner was on top of it patiently explaining each item listed. I decided on their paella and we found out there was a special for an extra $10 it would come with a delicious salad and a special potato appetizer. Manuel also recommend the wine and offer a sample a red for wife and white for me which we end up ordering. The food was quite good but be warned there will be ample leftovers to take home. Manuel was the perfect host the ambiance was Iberian decor and done well. The restaurant follows safe COVID-19 guidelines and I felt safe during the whole time there. I would recommend this restaurant and will return when next visiting the area.
My wife and I ate here for Valentine's Day. We've been here before, but it's been a while. We were very pleased. The ambiance was fantastic. The food was excellent and the service was good as well. Overall a great dinner. We'll be back!
Excellent food excellent service! Would absolutely recommend!
Service was excellent. Restaurant was beautiful and clean. The food was good but wasn’t crazy about the steak. No char and it lacked flavor. All our remaining dishes were good.
The fried plantains were excellent and the yucca bread for appetizers was outstanding! We ordered the meat paella was amazing! The only thing we didn’t care for was the churros they were burnt. Plus we would have liked a vanilla sauce to choose from.
Staff is always super pleasant and willing to give suggestions. Get the Tres Leche! Thank me later.
Great service and great selection of tapas. Excellent meal, as always!
Hands down the best restaurant we’ve ever been too. The owner was nothing short of incredible, the atmosphere was so authentic and the food was AMAZING. I 10/10 recommend. Go and try out this place. I promise you won’t be disappointed
Awesome food and great service!! Would recommend to anyone looking for a great night out!
Ole Tapas is top notch excellent quality dining. It’s great for everyday dining as well as special occasions. Manuel and his family know how to run a restaurant. Food and service are consistently fabulous. There’s such a variety on the menu.
Ole' is quickly becoming one of our favorite restaurants in Newark. It is a Friday Date night special for us. Juan is an excellent server. The tapas are both traditional and unique in nature. The value is exceptionally reasonable. It has all of the ambience, hospitality, and tastiness we look for when we want to enjoy a delicious meal and time with one another. We're gonna be regulars and happy to establish una amistad with the Ole' Team.
The paella was out of this world! The sangria was delicious! And the staff was very attentive and helpful with ordering.
Fantastic service and food! Highly recommend it to all my friends
First time back meal was great as usual
Have yet to have a bad visit awesome family run business. Very personable
The social distance precautions didn’t detract from this great menu and meal.
Awesome restaurant. Waiter very knowledgeable about meals and wines. Even introduced me to some new Spanish beers
Lovely experience, the food was amazing, the staff is amazing, the ambience is amazing. This is a go-to for my family.
Very good authentic tapas restaurant. Would definitely go again, good for a date
The food is good and the service is friendly. They know what to recommend if you are having some trouble deciding on food or wine.
We had six plates for two people, a mixture of our favorites and 2 specials. The prep and balance of the spices were just not what we have come to love at Ole Tapas-pretty bland overall. I think our mistake was coming on all you can eat paella night and not ordering paella. That was combined with a huge party in the rear of the restaurant. The kitchen seemed overtaxed.
Superb! The tapas, paella, and sangria were all delicious and brought back great memories of our trip to Spain last year. The staff is super nice and attentive. I will definitely come here several times and bring lots of friends too.
Restaurant cancel reservations without calling us for a party. After driving 1 hour we were not seated
We had a great time. It was our first time there and we will definitely go again.
Easily some of the best food we've had in a long time, and best Tapas BY FAR. Everything was amazing, but the bacon wrapped scallops were in a world of their own. Still we got 6 platters and all were incredible, will go again.
The food was good, not amazingly delicious but just good. For the price, the food should have been better The wait staff were kind and were working hard. But the restaurant did not seem prepared for a crowded Valentine’s Day evening. My roasted potatoes arrived cold. I asked the waitress if I could get a small plate of warm potatoes and she didn’t think that the kitchen could handle my request. She asked but they couldn’t do it. Unfortunately, I can’t recommend the restaurant nor do I want to go back.
Tables way too close together. Order was incorrect and steak was cold. Will likely never go again.
