As in the past, we had a terrific meal at Ola. A “must” is the guacamole starter, prepped at the table. We all ordered fish entrees which were superbly seasoned and cooked. Very attentive staff, with lovely live music in the background.

Run by very attentive owners, it shows with the delicious food and friendly attentive staff. My kids are not big on eating anything other than traditional American fare but are always willing to try something here.

We have been regulars for years since opening and for good reasons: great food, attentive service, and friendly atmosphere.
This great Latino cuisine is run by a wonderful family who really cares that customers enjoy their dining experience. Appetizers are great with the lobster quesadilla topping the list. All the fish are fresh and tasty. Skirt steak is really good and the paella is unbeatable. The two brother owners are always on site and know how to please their customers. The nautical theme and lively atmosphere top off a great dining experience. Portions are generous and the prices would be almost double in New York. You should definitely try this gem in Orange without the strip mall setting turn you off.

We stopped in for drinks and apps. Everything was fine. We only had wine and apps. The calamari was done perfectly. They use a different batter for the coating that makes it crispy. The service is exemplary. Everyone works to make your visit pleasant. You really want to return again and again. Give this place a try.

We have dined here a few times and my last review was 2015. I am sorry to say we were extremely disappointed with the food. The guacamole used to be the best around but was very average tasting tonight. The bay scallops in the paella were VERY fishy and the skirt steak was on the tougher side. $4.00 for iced tea is ridiculous, but to charge an additional $4.00 for a refill is nickel and diming (not acceptable for a high end restaurant). Quite honestly, if it was not for the good service and ambience all six of us would give it 2 stars. We will not be returning!
