The food was delicious. We had the grilled octopus and for apps the mini arepitas with beef, chicken salad, and cheese. 👌🏼Super cute decor and the Spanish music gives it lively vibes. Definitely will go back. Ambiance is chic and classy.

The cocktails were amazing and so was the food. We preferred our appetizers to our entrees, they were more flavorful. The arepas, tuna tartare, and tamales were all really great.

I went to Casa Ora with my wife as part of a short wedding anniversary trip. We are both Venezuelans and we loved the drinks, the food and service. We loved it because you have your typical Venezuelan treats like arepas, tequeños, cachapas, etc. But their main courses have a little creative twist that takes these dishes to another level. Their drinks are also pretty amazing! We will definitely come back next time we are around.

Food was very good, but the outdoor dining was extremely cramped. Tables are crammed together so close it’s hard to get to the opposite side of the table.

Very delicious brunch menu! Beautiful and warm outdoor set up but the tables were very close together with floating plexiglass partitions between tables. Music was loud at times but it didn’t bother us. Will definitely be returning!

This is one of my favorite restaurants, not only for take out but also dine-in. The food is always delicious and it definitely got my through the shut down back in March. The dine-in experience is also amazing, the food and service always perfect. The outdoor area is great and very cozy, even with winter around the corner, highly recommend. Casa Ora has done a great job of keeping everyone safe, even with indoor dining. Highly recommend, you will not be disappointed.

The food was so delicious, we spoke about it for days afterwards. Far and away the best guacamole we have had in a very long time. The empanadas were incredibly flavorful; definitely homemade. Well worth the trip.

I made a reservation for a table indoors with my friend for brunch. The restaurant offered us hand sanitizer upon our arrival which was nice. Since the outdoor dining was in the street, I'm glad there was space inside. The menu was limited, but I'd rather call it precise. I had the green eggs, and my friend had empanadas which we also ordered for the table. We shared a bottle of San Pellegrino which was nice. The only issue was that I wish we had been asked if we wanted another cup of coffee (I had an excellent decaf Americano.) It might have been because of the time limit at the table. I would definitely recommend and will try visiting again!

Food and service was great. Cocktails were very good. Music was quite loud and the cars and ambulances didn’t contribute to the noise level. Extremely pricey... was not expecting it to be that expensive.

Not a bad little place to eat. The food is good even though they have a limited menu. But after ordering drinks we noticed that that wasn't there strong point and returned them and just preferred water.

Unfortunately my friend and I did not have a very good experience here. We waited over an hour and a half for our food, but it never came. They ended up comping our drinks which was nice, but they never gave us an exclamation for what happened. Our waitress was very apologetic and respectful, I made sure to tip her nicely. I was really looking forward to trying the food, everyone else’s food looked so good.
