    We really loved the tastes and the ambience. Our server was very nice. The only negative issue would be the size of the portions. Recommend slightly bigger portions! The drinks are great and we will definitely go back.

    We had a great dining experience! Lucky to be with a larger group, so we all got to fully sample the delightful, innovative and beautifully crafted dishes featuring local ingredients. Each seasonal dish was uniquely well composed for a creative and rewarding flavor experience. There was plenty of veg focus and the halibut entree was superb. Drinks were outstanding and provided a refreshing introduction to the artistry and thoughtfulness behind the operations. Nice ambience, mood and music, friendly casual vibe an a full Fri night. I can't wait to go back when it's warmer and have a lovely meal on the garden patio...

    This is the kind of place where you feel welcomed and not rushed. We enjoyed delicious drinks made with OOLA's own distilled vodka, gin and whiskey, which you can also purchase on site. The shared plates were innovative and included locally sourced seasonal delights (like fiddleheads) and were beautifully presented. Be prepared to have your palate wowed! Executive Chef Elizabeth Blacker wants you to enjoy and treasure every morsel. The menu changes every month. The place has a good vibe. We sat at a table, but the bar looked equally comfortable. It was a spring evening, so the garage doors were closed. We will be sure to go often, particularly when the summer breeze rolls through Seattle.

    Delicious small plates to share. Ultra seasonal ingredients with some lesser knowns like chrysanthemum greens and lovage oil. Everything was premium!
