Ole Tapas Lounge & Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
We took our friends from our of state here for dinner and thoroughly enjoyed every minute! The atmosphere was very pleasant- we had asked for a table in a quiet location and were accommodated quickly; the food was excellent and wonderfully prepared (and hot when it was supposed to be!). Our server was very knowledgeable and pleasant. All-in-all it was a wonderful evening and we would recommend Ole' Tapas any time!
I've reviewed this restaurant several times already, so I'll be brief. This is one of our favorite restaurants in the Newark, DE area. We always share several tapas (small plates); depending on one's hunger, 2-3 per person are appropriate. The menu changes from time to time, and sometimes dishes that we like are gone (or changed), but overall the quality remains high.
Great food, good service. Warm atmosphere. We were there on a Saturday mid afternoon and it was very quiet so I can't advise on noise or action. Food was excellent-- and we tried a lot of different things. Great selection of tapas, decent wine list. Don't miss the stuffed dates!!
We had been to Ole Tapas in June and loved it. It's an attractive restaurant. We're at a slight disadvantage because we don't eat pork or shellfish, so the tapas menu is limited. Of the plates we tried, we really liked the short ribs. The others were nothing special. Apparently they change the menu seasonally and we would try again when more things we like come back.
My husband and I are from out of town and stumbled upon this gem through Open Table and Yelp. It had hundreds of raving reviews and we could not agree more. We were celebrating our anniversary and had a cozy, quiet table. The ambience of this restaurant was perfect for our romantic occasion. Our Spanish-speaking waiter was helpful in explaining the menu and food choices we weren't familiar with. He was entertaining, as well as very professional, giving us great service and suggestions. We enjoyed five or six tapas (the flank steak and crispy chicken were our favorites) and shared a pitcher of the best sangria ever. We even got two desserts to share, even though we didn't finish them the selections were just too good to decide on only one. I wish we lived closer so we could go back on a Saturday when there is live music. We just may have to make an hour and a half drive for that!
We tried Tapas in various cities and found very good ones. This one has very good food, excellent service and reasonable prices as some Tapas restaurants can break the bank. Had the excellent Sunday paella special and we were able to try various selections. Our teenage son really enjoyed his selections and was able to satisfy his ample appetite.
Food is good but way over-priced for what you get...I could have made it at home for a fraction of the cost. This is a bar with a restaurant, not a restaurant with a bar. There was no wait staff. The bartender doubled as our waiter. Nice venue, intimate semi circle booth, dancers and music on scheduled days.
Went there for my daughter's graduation from UD. We had 6 people. Server was excellent; very attentive; made very good recommendations regarding some tapas, the sangria and pailla. The food was very tasty; good sangria. Would go there again if I'm ever back in DE.
This restaurant was such a delight! The owners are wonderful and make you feel like you are a guest in their home. The food is fantastic. I went there for a business lunch with 7 of my coworkers. We let the server and owner choose everything for us because we were not sure what to get. Everything was fantastic and it was really just a good time.
1st time there. Friday night. Nice music and easy to have a conversation. Great waiter Jack. Said they have dancers & live music on Saturdays. We had many Tapas. The food was delicious! The pan de yucca was SO good! Takes 20 minutes so we ordered that the minute we sat down. Had calamari, salmon, scallops, beets, & platinos - the sweet plantains. A little pricey, but delicious!!!
The food was good, the ambiance was great, our waiter, Serve was great at explaining the menu and very helpful with suggestions. There was nine if us, and some have never experienced Tapas as well as Spanish cuisine. Highly recommend.
A repeat visit to one of our favorites. The Sunday all-you-can-eat paella special is a terrific value ... great food and great price. The pitcher of sangria was a disappointingly high price point when compared to wine or other choices but overall the Sunday special offers a really good bargain for really good food.
Our server, Nicole, was amazing! She was knowledgeable about the menu, great with conversation, and paced the meal perfectly.
The paella is awesome!
Only downside is we were seated at a table with a broken sconce, so the light was right in our faces. The hostess kindly asked if we'd like to sit elsewhere, so we did.
