We had octopus that was fork tender, calamari that had a very light batter. The bread and spread were great. Bronzino and scallops were very nicely done. Great job! We are people who ran restaraunts for 40 years.

Amazing food. This was our first time in Atlantic City and the Olan restaurant at the Tropicana Resort was great. We came to celebrate my hubby's birthday after the seeing the Alice Cooper show and the food and experience was amazing. The surprise birthday cake was just amazing. Our waitress was super attentive and friendly.

The Wagyu beef empanadas were excellent, and the Scallops with sauteed spinach and fingerling potatoes were out of this world. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly, and the view from the private booths is unparalleled. Our server, Marisol, was delightful. Extremely attentive and accommodating to our every request, she made sure that our experience would be one to remember. We surely miss dining at Wellington's, but can't think of any better replacement.

Wanted to try something different to celebrate my mothers birthday. Ok selection of food other than seafood. Way overpriced for what you get portion wise, compared to other restaurants. Service was terrible, waited close to 12 minutes before our server came over to take our drink order- mind you there were only about 4/5 tables of customers at the time. Our waiter was very nice, polite and quickly answered questions about the different food items on the menu. Had I known what we were going to get service/food wise for being an upscale restaurant, I would have chosen a different option for dinner. For the amount of the $215 bill before tip, for four of us to eat, I really was hoping for all of us to be full and not have to go to hooters afterwards to fill up our bellies. There is a first for everything, but this will definitely be the first and last for eating at this restaurant.

This was an anniversary celebration and no place better than Olon to have it. The ambiance, the service and the food is wonderful. We have been here many times and always ask for Liz to be our waitress. She welcomes us as friends into her home and makes sure we have a happy and satisfying time. The beef was not up to par this night and she did everything she could to make it better. Everything else was perfect as always. Food aside, we had a great anniversary because of Liz and the conversation with her. Looking forward to returning many more times.

Lovely decor and airy feeling. It was a Wednesday night at 9pm so the restaurant was not crowded our noisy. Staff were extremely friendly and explained each dish as they were brought out. We went with the Chef’s $85 tasting. Not disappointed. Got to sample many delicious dishes which included desserts. The flan and parfait were a nice light finish to a great meal. Thank you to our server Katy. We are not from the area but will certainly be back soon.

other than the Wagyu beef empanadas the food was very underwhelming. This was the first night me and my wife have had out together in a very long time due to having an 18 month old at home. For the price I’d rather go to a Steven Starr restaurant and know I Will be getting a good meal

Great restaurant. This was our second visit to Olon this month. Waitress was somewhat distracted, so not as wonderful as the first time. We ordered drinks when we sat down. We didn't see them until I asked again, which was after the first course had been served. Server was anxious to clear our plates from the table before we were finished. My husband ordered a refill on his Sangria, which never showed up. Place not that busy, so we couldn't figure why we had service problems. Very eclectic menu, which we love. Food was fabulous, as usual.

Beautiful, light and airy seaside interior makes Olon very comfortable and inviting. Service was pleasant and our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and specials. The beef and cheese empanadas were flavorful and a great way to start the meal. Wagya Skirt Steak had a great seasoning and was perfectly tender. Sides of creamed spinach, asparagus (served Cold/room temp) and the rice and beans were all tasty and fresh. Would definitely go back to this Jose Garces restaurant.

Service slow but freindly. Food was unimpressive at best. Tapas/raw bar brunch buffet was a joke - tiny, limp thawed frozen shrimp, puny oysters and tiny clams on the half shell. Little cups of civiche were the only standout with a nice sparkling lime flavor. Chicken and waffles were poorly prepared -dry chicken served over burnt waffles. Crab Benedict was OK but not great. Nice atmosphere and gorgeous view. Come for drinks to soak up the atmosphere - skip the food.

Olon was a wonderful surprise and introduction to Equadorian cuisine. We took advantage of the Twilight Tasting menu available between 4-6 and could not have been more pleased. We were able to sample yucca chips, homemade guacamole and a delightful heart of palm salad with dates and almonds! That was for starters! Entrees were flavorful and service was delivered with a smile. Dessert was amazing too. Very different and refreshing. We can’t wait to go back!
