    Place was just excellent. Excellent food, excellent drink, beautiful decor, really lovely service from the front door to the people bringing food and clearing the tables, and everything in between. My server, Laura, was knowledgeable and had the nicest smile. This might seem like a paid review but it isn't. I just really appreciate a restaurant done right.

    The food and cocktails were all INCREDIBLE. We sat in the outdoor seating and it was beautifully designed. Loved the ambiance and everyone working their was so kind and even gave us perfect recommendations. Also this place is family ran and you really can feel the warmth in everything they do. Can’t wait to go back and try a bunch of different food. 11/10

    This place is magical. The ambiance took me back to my Caribbean roots and the food was phenomenal. The passion fruit apricot helado was wonderful. All in all, I definitely see myself revisiting in the near future.

    First of all, service was great. And please make the ceviche an entree too. We had as appetizers shrimp, ceviche and yuca frita, all top tier. And scallops and paella as entree, incredibly enjoyable. And lastly, the vegan ice cream and cuatro leches,which were delicious. I also loved how they were playing Hispanic music through and through 🤝🏼🤌🏽. Would go recommend, go again,and eat and drink more.

    We celebrated our anniversary at Casa Ora and have only positive things to say about our experience. First and foremost, the food was delicious - every dish was packed full of flavour, they were plated beautifully and the portions were very large as well. We also thoroughly enjoyed the crafted cocktails. Our server was extremely attentive, kind, and gave us great recommendations. As well, we felt special when our server acknowledged our anniversary. Very happy that we selected Casa Ora for this experience, and we would love to return in the future.

    The interior is nicely decorated. The service is friendly but partially unable to serve the right plates at the right table. The food was ok: the scallops were nicely prepared and tasted very well. The chicken breast was almost overcooked and hence too dry. It was served with a huge portion of boring fried rice, nothing else. I can get this in a cheap cantina for less than 10$ as oppose to 28 $.

    We three had a very enjoyable dinner at Casa Ora. We all had seafood--paella, scallops, and red snapper, and everything was well prepared and delicious. We also were impressed by the cocktail menu, which featured a libation called "When Smokey Sings." How can you not like a place that names a cocktail after the great Smokey Robinson? We also enjoyed the salsa being played outside, where we sat. Celia Cruz made for a great accompaniment to our dinner. Looking forward to returning to Casa Ora.

    Everything we ate was worth getting, and I’d get it all again. Beautiful restaurant. Perhaps a tad too much room fragrance - I’d rather smell the food - but otherwise just a great experience all around. Great for groups and sheltered outdoor dining.

    Simply put - it was outstanding. We went for brunch to celebrate my son’s birthday; and we loved every bite. The food and the setting brought back many memories of our years living in Venezuela. We met Ivo Díaz - not only a great restauranteur and entrepreneur - but an amazing human being. Some of our favorite dishes were the ceviche, hallaca, the Pabellón Criollo a Caballo; the cachapas and the mandocas! The passion fruit and tamarind juices were delicious. We can easily see how Casa Ora earned its Michelin star and can’t wait to return for dinner!

    First time to Casa Ora and it didn’t disappoint. What a charming atmosphere, and our server was attentive and delightful. But the star of the evening was the asada negro for two. What a flavor explosion! The sauce was akin to a mole/bbq combo. Sooo delicious. And the short rib was fall-off-the-bone tender. This is a great choice for foodies who like to explore different flavor combinations. Will definitely be back!

    Celebrated 20 year wedding anniversary here in Sept. Great experience. All the dishes were excellent. Guacamole and arepitas were great starters. Red snapper was delicious, as was Pabellon A Caballo, which was a great deal for the amount of food. Well rounded drink menu. Complimentary champagne was a nice touch for the occasion. Great night.
