both food and service was below normal levels of excellence
Excellent from start to finish. Great service from friendly and experienced waitstaff. Food was perfectly prepared. Serving sizes were just right. Suckling pig and duck breast entrees so delicious! Topped off with the cheese plate and three different flavors of ice cream along with espressos with brandy and honey. Yum!! Will be back again.
Enjoyed dinner tonight for my husband’s birthday- great food wonderful service
Beautiful evening. Wonderful outdoor seating.
Food and service excellent as always.
Amazing food and cocktails.
We had the gazpacho and marinated anchovies appetizers and steak tips main course with sides of mushrooms and potatoes. Everything was cooked perfectly and very fresh. Very nice evening out in New Haven!
Wonderful food and ambience---the roast suckling pig was fantastic and the chocolate medley was a perfect dessert. Bravo!
Wonderful to dine in Olea after such a long hiatus. Magnificent as always!
Amazing place for any type of special occasion. Truly a gem in New Haven. The food is a mouth full of flavor in every bite with the sophistication of a chef staff that understands overtones, undertones, flavors and textures.
We had a wonderful dinner at Olea, mostly including cocktails and entrées. The food was delicious, the service was friendly, and the atmosphere was nice.
It was perfection in every way. Book a table and you will not regret it!
Always outstanding. The tasting menu offered several surprises and some beautifully executed standards. My only disappointment was that among the delicious wine pairings there wasn't a sherry ... but that's a quibble.
Our dinner which was a chefs tasting menu was absolutely spectacular. The excellence of each dish was deliciously memorable. We have visited Olea for the second time and have been undeniably impressed with every aspect of this restaurant. The authenticity is fresh, bright and so tasteful! Olea is a pure a jem!
Hands down New Haven's best restaurant. Quality of food, service, and resentation, are invariably first rate.
After nearly 16 months since last dining at Olea, we were happy to see that the food, service and ambiance were as good as ever. The staff is very attentive and the food and portions were excellent. One of our New Haven favorites.
The food was fantastic and so was the service. We had lots of seafood-baby squid, ceviche, fresh anchovies, branzino. Would definitely recommend!
Always a fine dining experience. Love eating at Olea!
We did the 6-course Chef's tasting with the accompanying wine pairings. Each bite of food was thoughtfully curated, meticulously prepared and beautifully plated. The wine pairings were wonderfully complimentary to each dish. We had a true culinary experience and thought the service and ambiance of the restaurant also helped to create a memorable meal.
We had a lovely anniversary celebration, food and service were excellent.
Great birthday celebration. Very accommodating to party size and food requests!
The noise level is almost unbearable, but the food is so good and the presentation is exquisite. The only thing I would suggest is a serious investment in an acoustic ceiling which would make the whole experience perfect!
Wonderful food and complimentary snacks. Always a pleasurable experience with good customer service and delicious food!
We had the tasting menu. Most of the dishes are good but the duck leg is oily and comes with sweet sauce, which we don’t like very much. The meat itself is a little bit dry. Other dishes including the tapas, fish and the dessert were good.
Overall the service was good, though the server forgot to introduce the food for our tasting menu.
Very friendly and outgoing staff, food was absolutely amazing.
Almost everything is perfect. One of the best restaurant in New Haven.
First indoor dining in 15 months. Tables spaced, wonderful food and setvice.
The testing menu was AMAZING; beautifully presented, great descriptions by very attentive staff, and all high end gourmet. Highly recommended.
Outstanding dinners every time we’ve visited!
Amazing Spanish cuisine in a spectacular setting- don’t miss this place the experience is wonderful service impeccable and the food is delicious!
It’s just ok…nothing to crave
Great food and great atmosphere! Had outdoor seats with heating, which was great
Amazing food and experience
Truly delicious food, excellent service, quiet and intimate dining.
I had a lovely birthday dinner at olea. Would highly recommend!
"Energetic" doesn't exactly describe the noise level. We sat outside, for pandemic safety, and apparently the outside area abuts a party area for fraternities, and the wait staff and proprietors can't control the noise. I couldn't hear my dinner partner at all. Would be good to find a way to change that.
The food was excellent. We enjoyed the tasting menu which had a variety of courses, all of which were delicious. The scallops were great as were the quail, the duck breast, and the pork. The perfect ending to the meal was the dessert. The food quality is always fresh, delicious and well presented. Service is always outstanding. This is my favorite restaurant bar none.
GREAT SERVICE AND WELL MANAGED. OUTSTANDING FOOD!
We had a celebratory dinner for our wedding night. It was perfect. We look back to having many more dinners there.
We had a early reservation and essentially had the place to ourselves. The service was highly personalized! The food and presentation was exceptional and we will recommend olea to our friends and family.
