Went for a date on a Thursday night. Laura was our server and she was super sweet! There was another server (female) as well who helped us as well. They sat us and the other couples who came in that night in a corner which set a lovely , intimate ambiance. Thanks Casa Ora! Cocktails were great, recommend for a date.

It was an experience, it exceeded my expectations. From the moment you enter the restaurant the atmosphere makes you feel at home, the decoration is super cute not to mention that the smell of the place is incredible. I went with my American friend to eat food from my country and I couldn’t have picked a better place, the Pabellón a Caballo was delicious, the tequeños with guasacaca was of another level. My friend ended up buying a bottle of guasacaca and left it at the place, sad for him lol. Anyway, I feel so proud that he can't wait to come back.

Definitely is the best Venezuelan Restaurant in NYC, it’s all that is good. Do not hesitate a second to go, it is well worth it!

The food was amazing the only issue was the lack of attention even though we were outside it took a long time for our food to arrive we were seat for about an hour and a half until our food made its way. None the less it was a great place to sit and get a drink.

Great cocktails! The appetizers were all excellent - we pretty much ordered all of them. The tomato salad was unique and delicious. The other things we ordered - the beet salad and pork tamale - were also great.

Tried the restaurant because of the food pictures on website. I was disappointed at the amount of octopus I received for $28.00. My husband ordered the scallops and it should have been labeled a plate of tomatoes with 4 scallops. We will not return for dinner. The best part of the night was the wine and the music.

Ambience, decor, and service are outstanding. I enjoyed sipping my drink and observing details. The appetizers including guacamole were delicious. For the main courses, the two beef dishes we ordered - we were thoroughly disappointed! They were plain and they were even served semi-warm. We understand that briskets and such take time to make and need to be prepared in advance, but the taste doesn’t need to suffer. For the price, they should be able to offer better quality dishes. We left trying not to be too disappointed but we were. Do better!!!

The food, drinks and service was excellent! The outdoor seating can be noisy given the location so it’s to be expected. Only wish the margarita on the rocks was bigger since it’s served in a wine glass.
