Highly recommend!! We randomly stumbled upon this restaurant and then booked through open table. Great, upbeat environment for a Thursday night. Can grab a drink at the bar while you wait for your table. We got the daily frozen marg -YUM! The chicken tacos were so so good. There was some kind of sauce on them that was unique and delicious.

The staff was so nice. From our server to even the host. Actually when we were waiting for our table I saw a little boy looking at the toy cars on the wall and the host gave him one on his way out! How sweet!!!

I've been to Orale a few times. They have good food and good drinks. Service was great as well. I thought the prices were a bit much.

We went there for my husband's bday and it was a good choice. It was the 4 of us and we made reservation and Good that we did. We were seated right away. The food was great and so were teh drinks. Get the red sangria..loved it! The chicken tacos are awesome..my husband is picky and for him to say he loved it says a lot.

The waiter was rushing our entire meal; he came to our table like 8 times. I usually enjoy my time here but that ruined our meal tonight.

Was fun and loud. They honored our reservation on time and the service was good. Nachos were great and the rest of the food didn’t disappoint but wasn’t ‘wow’. Drinks and beers are pricey. It’s a better experience than most Mexican places.

Food is always good. However, there was an issue with management and the bill. There is a certain deal that they make you pay cash for- which means they don’t let you split the bill if you are doing that. This was frustrating since one of us got this and the other didn’t. In the end, we paid full price because they wouldn’t allow the check to be split.

Excellent food, imaginative Mexican with great flavor and ingredients. The duck tacos were superb as were the duck fat bacon parmesan fries. Our server Terry one of the best waiters we've ever had, a real professional in every way. Attentive but never hovering. Very knowledgeable about the menu. This is a top Mexican restaurant for anywhere on the East Coast.

We got to Orale 30 mins before our reservation and ended up just hanging out at the bar since they were running on schedule. The bartenders were very attentive and checked up on us every so often. The drinks were perfect- strong, not too sweet and spicy (we opted for the muddled jalapeño add on). The food was even better, we had the guac (extra spicy) and tacos. The portions were a good size and by the end of the meal we were stuffed. Highly recommended and I’ll defibirelt be going back.
Tip: make a reservation to avoid a potential 1-2 hour wait

Went here for a date with my girlfriend. Was sat in less than ten minutes of our reservation time. Service was extremely prompt and the server was very personable. Attended to our needs very diligently even with a restaurant full of customers. Food was incredible (I got the pollo tacos while my girlfriend got the carnitas) and was very filling without needing an appetizer. Cocktails were delicious (100% get their signature margarita) and strong! My only gripe about this place is that it can be extremely loud if you are sitting in the main area. Other than that, I will 100% return here.
