I loved the service and the food and the yummy spicy mango margarita! I had a great time and my boyfriend loved his shrimp tacos while I had the enchiladas mole which was really good! I also enjoyed the churros for dessert...hmmm...yummy!

Everyone enjoyed their food (my skirt steak special was tender flavorful and perfectly cooked) and the service was really excellent. I had a margarita that was delicious but mostly ice - not a good value at $14. I found the ambiance a bit cafeteria-like and not what I had expected from previous visits.

Ole is under new management and has turned from a jewel of a fine dining Mexican restaurant into a seedy bar. I was shocked by the new ambience. I had a housefull of guests whom I had invited to Ole for a special Christmas get together, and I was so embarrassed by the noisy environment, unappealing decor, and mediocre food. Sadly, I won't be returning again.

Had the duck mole dish which was just amazing. As tasty as terrific duck we had is south of France which looks and tastes almost like a cut of beef and with the great sauce (and Mexican style mashed potatoes) made for a meal that was definitely worth the price.

Most of our party enjoyed their food and drinks, but agreed that it was overpriced for what it was. We've definitely had better Mexican for a third of the cost. My chicken tinga tacos were extremely spicy - to the point where I could only eat 1.5 out of 4 tacos. Had to give the rest away to my friends who also agreed that they were way too spicy (and one of them LOVES spicy food). Don't think I'll be coming back.

Olé continues to deliver a great dinner, but not quite as fresh and notable flavors as years past. The guacamole made table-side still delights, and the service is friendly. But reducing the restaurant into the back room made the ambiance a bit less elegant and cool. We'd go back but with slightly lowered expectations.

This was a great choice for my birthday dinner on a snowy evening. A warm place with food that was both a comfort and interesting -- went beyond usual Mexican restaurant fare. Our waiter was attentive and offered good advice.

Food was tasty.

The dining room is behind the take-out area in this restaurant, so I had some reservations when I first walked in with my extended family in tow, but we had a lovely, affordable meal that delivered authentic Central American cuisine. There’s a big menu, so everyone in our (large) Party was able to find something they were excited about, including the vegan and some of my family members with more pedestrian (read: no spice, nothing “weird”) palates. They were also happy to accommodate our party of 9 without issue (something I discovered is a rarity in the Boston area). Generous portions and really good salsa!!

Our food was delicious. Our server was friendly but so, so, so slow. The space itself is very warm and welcoming. They are going for the tequila crowd and were a bit surprised by my order of a glass of wine... wine snobs look elsewhere! After all is said and done, the mole sauce is worth every penny.

They must have a new cook at Ole. We stopped going there over a year ago because the food was cookie cutter Mexican. Now its got new style, new deliciousness and a sense of the Mexican market and the best Mexican kitchen at the same time. Maybe the best Mexican food in Boston.

Well-made (and not oversized or oversugared) margaritas; fresh guac, all dishes (tamales, chicken tacos, tuna tacos, mole enchiladas) very tasty. Great service.
