Now we have it!

It’s been a while since we have gone to Ole, always a pleasurable dining experience. The table side guacamole is AWESOME, the entrees are solid. The servers were friendly and simply wonderful. I only one thing I would have really changed, which was not major issue. The booth we sat in was tattered and torn and they really should replace the cover on the booth seat. It takes away so much from their otherwise great ambiance.

Great food, good selection, good-sized portions, friendly helpful servers. A bit crowded and noisy. Music was a bit loud at times. Overall, a great Mexican dinner spot.

The cocktails + the famed guacamole: still stunning 👌! Very nice service as well. Tacos: disappointing. We had a better experience about it in the past about it (tortilla + filling). Still recommended; we will be back!

Ole continues to be among the best casual restaurants in Boston. The food is first-rate and the service is solid. Despite eating at a table in the parking lot (due to Covid measures, obviously), my friend and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. So glad Ole survived the pandemic!

We went there for Cinco de Mayo. Food was suburban Mall Quality. It’s too bad it’s a great location they have plenty of parking. It’s too bad that they’re lazy and don’t update their decor and down serve quality food. The place needs to go. There are way better restaurants that did not make it through Covid

I love Ole. Their food is outstanding, and the atmosphere is intimate and charming. They're trying out a new app that lets you order and pay at the table, which means you miss out on some of the service, but it's still COVID, so that's completely understandable.

Not following covid protocols. Tables not far enough apart, no screens. First they seated us next large 10 person party and then when we asked to be reseated, they put us so close to another party such that backs of chairs were almost touching.
Felt unsafe, so we left.

Decent food & drinks. House salsa is also very good... Hot salsa was not great. Flan was very good especially not too many places offering it. Veggie enchiladas were tasty but little dry & chili rellenos were ok.

Expensive for the amount of food offered. Guac is 14$ with only 1 avocado. Chips were offered without salsa. Salsa & chips was told to be for extra $ but then no charges put on check.

The food and drinks were absolutely amazing and the staff was super friendly and attentive. I ordered the vegan entree and shared guacamole, both were excellent. My friend had the tacos asada and loved them. I went out of my way to come to this restaurant because of the good reviews on Yelp (and because they had vegan options) and I'm so glad I did. Truly amazing, I'll definitely come back.
