We were attending a show in Atlantic City and wanted to have a nice meal beforehand. We had not been to a Garces restaurant in the past and wanted to experience his cuisine. The service was outstanding and our server Marisol was a delight. My husband loved his seafood and I sampled a number of dishes including empanadas, a skewer sampler and a tuna ceviche. All dishes were wonderful and we would definitely return.

Tuna appetizer at the bar before dinner was fresh and tasteful. Service friendly and attentive. Kudos!
Dinner in the dining room was a bit disappointing. We are not very picky customers , however we are believers of communicating when something isn't right, that's how it gets fixed. We ordered a bottle of wine and were excited to try this restaurant. The clams Italiano dish was so salty we couldn't eat them. We communicated this and although the manager did visit our table to offer another dish or to remake, the waitress was much impersonal and short when we posed our complaint and stated that we could not eat them. (It was that salty).
We decided to do apps/small plates for dinner so ordered
the lobster ceviche, which was perfect.
Now the empanada sampler was interesting and mostly tasteful however, more dough then filling, and fried to an "over-crisp". Somewhat disappointed since our trip to AC was to actually dine at the fine restaurants, including Olon. Will give it another try, maybe.

Our main reason for dinning at Olon was for the whole lobster. It was always our favorite. But you do not offer it anymore. We were so very disappointed. I ordered the surf and turf and it didn't compare to your previous whole lobster. This lobster really had no taste it was not even served with butter. The steak that came along with it was ok. My friend had the scallops and they were not seared very well. The best part of the meal were the yucca fries. We probably will try a different place on our next visit.

My food was ok but not as good as my last visit. Server didn’t come back soon enough after serving us. It wasn’t busy. I asked about the octopus and was told how good it was I love octopus if it is prepared properly, mine was like rubber.

Would recommend the stuffed flounder and the Bronzino, both dishes were excellent. The sides of Tamal corn along with the beans and rice were great additions. The portions are generous great the share to try more dishes. Service was great as well. Pace of the meal was spot on. Strongly recommend trying Olón if you are in the area.

Our server Cindy was EXCELLENT. She was friendly and didn’t miss a beat in filling our wine glasses as she handled several tables effortlessly. We were limited to a Price Fixe menu because my wife had a 2 for 1 promotion (we noticed most parties around us also had the offer) and our entrees were perfect. The NY strip steak and salmon were cooked to perfection.
The only small things keeping me from giving a perfect score were the noise level and the fact that we had our salads before our wine selection was served. That gave an impression that perhaps we were being hurried thru our dinners. Fortunately, that was not the case. We had a nice break between each course. I will definitely return and look forward to ordering off the full menu...although ‘buy one, get one’ worked perfectly in this instance.

Crab guacamole was a treat, but the cost was high for the appetizer. Scallop gratinee was excellent and the shrimp anticucho is always a good choice. Service was a little slow, which allowed us to enjoy our meals and conversation. Olson is one of our favorites.

This restaurant was absolutely amazing. The staff was extremely friendly & pleasant. We didn’t feel rushed to eat even though we had a later reservation. There are fireworks at 10:00pm & they were amazing as well. Probably one of the best firework displays that I have seen. I would recommend this restaurant 100 percent & would definitely eat here again. Thank you to the restaurant for such an enjoyable experience!!!

Birthday Dinner!..Food was excellent, as was the view. I had been here a few months after their opening and the service was personal and spectacular. I found it quite nonchalant at this time. They were busy, but a quick smile and concern that we were ok as they pass goes a long way. (I am in no way implying that we were ignored!!! ..) I would still definitely recommend Olon to all!
