Created by Ivo Diaz, The Nomad and Eleven Madison Park mixologist, and resident abuela and Executive Chef Isbelis Diaz. Casa Ora is a family owned and operated Venezuelan-American Fine Dining restaurant located in East Williamsburg. We serve refined farm-to-table plates and modern cocktails.

We are focused on bringing the beauty and nature of Venezuela to New York City. In times of political injustice upon Venezuelans, Casa Ora is dedicated to donating a portion of profits to families forced to seek asylum due to lack of human rights resources such as food, clean water, and government protection.

    The food was yummy and creative but a bit variable ranging from delicious to just solid. The ambiance was great with beautiful decor and helpful and attentive service.

    It is an amazing place, they managed to capture the authentic flavors of Venezuelan food, which brought all kind of reminiscences of our country. But they do it I a very refined way. Also, the cocktails were creative and well balanced. Excelent experience. We are planning to visit again soon!

    Celebrated a birthday at Sat brunch. First time here - enjoyed our meal and the ambience. Service was excellent, our server kept our water glasses filled and checked on our table often. We ordered ceviche appetizer, arepas pernil, Venezuelan french toast - all excellent and the food came out quickly. Great drink menu. Looking forward to our next family get-together here. Highly recommend!

    We went there for my birthday, and we got some tequeños, empanadas, pastelitos and mandocas as appetizers. Everything was exquisite and really authentic Venezuelan. Just delish! Then, we had some arepas, being the pernil one the most outstanding one of all. One of my kids got the pabellón (which might be enough to share). We also ordered an arroz con pollo, Venezuelan French toast, and an arepa andina! Everything was on point. My daughter’s favorite drink was the chicha and the passionfruit juice. Casa Ora has become a staple any time I come to visit them. Our favorite Venezuelan restaurant in the States by far ( and we have tried a few all over).

    Outstanding Venezuelan cuisine. Casa Ora earned the Michelin Star with the delicious taste of the country’s traditional plates, with fantastic service, a beautiful decoration that reminds you of your grandma’s home in a little South American town. We will definitely go back even though it is a 1h:30m drive.

    I am from Maracaibo and I have to say that the mandocas tasted just like my grandmothers! All the food was amazing and my Russian friend was delighted with all the food. It took about 15 minutes for the waiter to acknowledge us when we first sat down. However, service after that was OK. I travel to venezuela often and our service is always top notch. I would recommend focusing on that moving forward. But all in all good amazing food. Very nice

    Just Wow… now I know why this place received a Michelin star. The service while dining was excellent. The food and drinks were exploding with flavor down to the small details that you wouldn’t think of. The appetizers (arepas, cachapitas and ceviche) delicious. The drinks (great Savannah and lime to my coconut) were the best drinks I have ever had hands down and I am not exaggerating. The entrees (beef and lobster) were handled with delicacy and the cooks on both were delightful. The hot chocolate was foamy and creamy. Lastly, the dessert (cuatro leches) had an unexpected hint of cinnamon at the end that exploded on my taste buds. I would definitely recommend and will be returning. Thank you for today! 9.5/10 (because we were there first and the host helped someone else before us).

    Great staff, from hostess to bar to table. Interesting menu, quality ingredients and beautifully presented. Specialty cocktails are indeed special. The space is just right in an emerald green and with good music. Bonus is their connection and support of helping Venezuelans forced to flee their homes due to lack of basic human rights.

    Casa Ora is such a beautiful restaurant inside, making it perfect for a date night. The staff was so sweet and the service was amazing. I highly recommend ordering the Calientico (seasonal drink-winter). This drink was delicious! 10/10! Foods I highly recommend: las Arepitas, the Pabellón a Caballo, the Pollo, and the Quatro Leches dessert.

    A Venezuelan Gem in the Heart of the City My dining experience at Casa Ora felt like a delightful journey back to Venezuela without ever leaving the city. The tequeños were authentically Venezuelan, oozing with cheese and offering the perfect crunch. The empanadas struck an ideal balance of crispiness, turning every bite into a joyous experience. The Bollitos Pelones were a nostalgic trip back home and my favorite dish of the night. This restaurant is a little slice of Venezuela in the city. It’s an essential visit for anyone who appreciates Venezuelan cuisine or is keen to explore its unique flavors. Saludos!

    I went to Casa Ora on Christmas Day and I was so happy I did. Everything from the service, food and ambiance was amazing. My friend and I were seated at a comfortable table in a room that was beautifully decorated. We tried two of their signature cocktails and were very impressed. The food was incredible. The ceviche was one of the best I've ever had and the Red Snapper was cooked to perfection. The service was also great. Our server was very attentive and friendly. I will definitely be returning to Casa Ora.

    i don’t like to write any negative reviews because the reviews make or break opportunities. I have never had a bad experience with casa ora prior than yesterday. I had reservations and made them in advance. I arrived with my party of 5 around 10 min early. We were asked to wait and no mention of any follow up. I never asked when will we be seated, the time was 8:10pm. Finally a person by the door at 8:15 stated a party if wrapping up in the reserved area. We were finally asked to sit by 8:20PM. i understand this is a very busy time and it’s in good hospitality for anyone to be addressed not left to wonder. I thought that was in poor taste.
