    Amazing atmosphere and amazing food. Truly a gem, would go back multiple times. The artichoke dish was amazing, as was the beef meatballs, however everything was delicious and service was great.

    Ooooh, just moved to the neighborhood and went here for the first time. $5 happy hour sangria (that is strong) and $ happy hour tapas. The goat cheese croquettes were amazing. Will definitely be back!

    Worst service I ever seen. They screwed up everything they possibly could.
  • Rosie E.
    The food is great but the service is awful. Every time I go here the hostess gives me so much attitude. Thanks but no thanks.

    Great place for tapas! In love with the almond stuffed bacon wrapped dates! Lamb meatballs and trio are great! Come prepared as there is always waiting time and service is slow
  • Don T.
    This place was a tapas haven. Amazing food and delicious sangria. The only thing that was just OK was the falafel crusted artichoke.

    Best happy hour on the planet. Red sangria, romesco, fried chickpeas, falafel-crusted artichokes, and Spanish pitza are required.

    Amazing sandwiches, they are served with patatas bravas, which sets the sandwich apart from other sandwich places. Get a seat outside on a sunny day to enjoy the neighborhood

    Went here on a date for dinner. Was a little disappointed in their vegetarian options. However I ordered the farro pasta and was in love.

    It's small, but if you go at an off-peak hour with your friends, the more tapas you'll be able to order. Can't go wrong with anything there!

    Great happy hour!

    The shrimp with french sauce, bacon wrapped almonds, haloumi all great. Everything is very extravagant and rich flavors. Nice with a bottle of wine. Go slow..order one or two dishes at a time.

    All is right in the world when coming to Olea. Things that are in point: Brussel Sprouts, orecchiette pasta, Paella, etc....

    Have never had a bad meal here. Sometimes a wait, especially for brunch, but always worth it.

    Great sangria served by an attentive staff. I really enjoyed the lamb keftedes, halloumi cheese, and fried chickpeas. The paella was just ok.

    Not quite a neighborhood secret, but tapas/sangria happy hour is not to be missed..... Also, off-menu kids meals if you go early and ask nicely.

    Absolutely loved the bacon wrapped dates and patatas bravas. Tried two other dishes off their specials that weren't very good. Overall worth a visit. They have a lot of options on the menu
