We have dined at Olon many times and it has always been an enjoyable experience. But this past Saturday night was a totally different story. Ordered shrimp skewers, Branzino and Chilean Sea Bass. The skewers were brought out and right behind them were our dinners, which the server ran back with as soon as he realized the mistake. We just ate the last skewer and our dinners we’re placed on the table. That not being bad enough, the sea bass was a cold flat piece of fish about 1/4” high, and tasteless. Definitely not the nice thick fluffy piece of fish you would expect for $45.00.
In all fairness, the management realized the mistake of the food coming out all at once and could not do enough for us, but the damage was done, my wife ate her dinner alone while I waited for mine.
So it seems Jose Garces name has become just that, a name to charge a higher price for average food. It’s too bad, “Olan” started good, but has seemed to gone in the wrong direction.

Food was very good. Oysters were delicious as well as our other appetizers and salads. However, the grilled octopus served was tough and tasteless. I would recommend serving Portuguese octopus. I find it more tenderer. Server took the time to inform us about the unfamiliar items on the menu with patience and a smile. Definitely will try it again.

My favorite restaurant. Look forward to Olon’s every time we come to Atlantic City. We choose small plates from each section of the menu rather than ordering an entree. If you are unsure of how or what to order, have the chef’s tasting menu but you better be hungry. We always ask for Marisol. She is a pleasure! Looking forward to our next visit.

Not for me. We had the Valentine's Day special which was filet mignon and shrimp. Those were both good, but the side dish of rice and beans was very disappointing. It was mostly beans with some watery rice and had little flavor. I tried to add some of the garlic that was on the side of the plate and salt and pepper, but it still wasn't worth eating. The salad that we ordered had a funny taste. I didn't like the breast that they offered, which was stuffed with a cheese, but it was just sort of o.k. The service was very slow, but that could be because it was Valentine's Day.

The food at Olon was fabulous and the restaurant is very attractive. Our only complaint was the overwhelming odor of cigarette smoke that was throughout the bar and restaurant the entire time we were there. It was extremely unpleasant and almost caused us to leave.

What an amazing experience!! Our server Katy was fantastic. We had a party of 9 and 6 of us did the tasting menu. I highly recommend it! It gave us a taste of the menu and everything was delicious! We were the last ones to leave the restaurant and no one pushed us to leave; they let us really enjoy our night. Another bonus was they had a beautiful balcony overlooking the boardwalk and ocean.

We tried a variety of different small dishes and ordered one entree and split it between three and it was just enough. Can't wait to go back and try other items on the menu.

The waiter was welcoming, friendly and attentive. The hostess who escorted us to our table was not too pleasing. We asked her for a table we really liked that had a nice view of the sunset and she said that the table was for four but she sat us at a table for four as well. The table we wanted remained empty for quite some time and a couple who came right after us she sat them at a better table. I thought that was unfair, we did have a reservation. I advise that you train your hostess to be welcoming and friendly, that is very important. But overall the food, environment and waiter were excellent.
