This restaurant is one of our "go-to's". Love the freshness of all of the dishes there!

Overall it was a nice dinner but the overall price was ridiculous for such small plates. I did the Valentine's day special 7 course meal 59 dollars per person drinks not included. The biggest plate was a salad, one course was so small another waiter asked to take the plate because they thought we finished it and we literally didn't touch the plate yet! The main course was a steak the size of ur palm, and two plates were shared the asparagus and the dessert, the asparagus plate had four skinny asparagus ! We had two each , so filling. . .and one scoop of ice cream, one brownie, yet 59 dollars PER PERSON. I think we would at least get our own plate. Also we got sangria menu said 29 dollars and I got charged 32, mind u it was a quarter ice. Overall it was a 180 dollar dinner and they forced a 20 percent tip for idk what. I would not recommend this place for events just regular dining.

This review is based on my experience solely on Valentine’s day. I’ve dined at Ole Tapas many times and had a wonderful experience each and every time. V-day was different, and very disappointing. They need to stick to the usual menu and their specialty - Spanish cuisine.

Ole' Tapas has been in this location for a number of years and there's a reason for that. The selection of tapas and other dishes is varied, the food is timed and presented well at your table and the staff members are friendly and helpful. They also have a nice wine list.

This is becoming our favorite go-to. For starters, none of the parking / seating hassles that apply to Main Street Newark when UD is in session. Service , food and wine are consistently excellent. Entertainment most Saturday nights (flamenco dancing, guitar; and violin). Tapas is great to graze, indulge, share. Terrific South American wines. Always good specials, and a great happy hour. I should reconsider my review - I don't want to give away the area's best-kept secret!

This is one of our favorite restaurants. Food (we had Tapas) was great !!!! All of the dishes (5 Tapas selections) were perfectly cooked and flavored. We will be back soon.

Service was poor. Drinks were expensive and delivered late. We were charged for something we did not order. We ordered paella since it was my father in law’s 94th birthday. It was served once then we had to get up to get ourselves a second helping. One dish showed up at the end of the meal. We asked if we could bring a birthday cake and the restaurant said yes. Then, at the table, they informed us that there would be a $2/ slice cutting charge. When my wife left a 10% tip to reflect the poor overall experience, the waitress ran after her to complain about the size of the tip.

It was a great experience but it was a bit chilly in the back where we were and I specifically asked to be sat away from the doors and bathrooms and we has the option of near the doors or bathrooms. Other than that, it was top notch fabulous! The delicious wine and tapas warmed me right up.

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!
