Place never disappoints
Great all around! We love Ole Tapas food and the whole team there is amazing! We will be back soon!
Great food, fun place!
Manuel and his restaurant are always the best. Best restaurant i have ever been to.
Service and food were outstanding. We ordered Top shelf margaritas and the bartender came to the table to show us the new top shelf tequila they had. We will definitely go back! You must order the paella! It was delicious!
Wonderful dinner for me and my wife. Enjoyed tapas and Spanish wines. Servers very pleasant and happy. Very informative about the dishes and wines. You can’t go wrong with the bacon wrapped figs. Also the scallops are wonderful! Enjoyed the chorizo in wine as well. Saw others with paella and that also looked amazing. Highly recommend and we will definitely returb
I have been here on several occasions very quiet very nice; on this afternoon about 12 little children accompanied with adults at three different tables came in and the noise; crying, hollering, running around was a bit too much!!
As usual, we liked Ole a lot (and still do). It is good to be back after a year's absence!
Great time Scott made some great suggestions...
A new air filtration/purification system has been installed. What isn't new is the great service, a very nice wine list, and fantastic food. We hadn't been here for about 2 years so what a joy it was to return and find it still measures up. Bravo!
Amazing selection of wines which the servers are very edycated on and the infused cocktails are amazing too!
The restaurant was very clean and covid-conscious and the food was very good. I wish I could remember the name of our server because she was an absolute delight! She just could not have been more efficient or gracious. Her welcoming manner and excellent service helped make the evening a great success. PS: The red sangria was FAB!!!!
Love Ole Tapas. Service, food and wine is always exceptional.
Awesome as always. Family had a great time . Food was spectacular
Great time. Live entertainment for a modest fee. Good atmosphere and friendly staff.
Great place for first lunch out in a year. Will be back.
This place NEVER disappoints! Food and service is always outstanding! Highly recommend.
Had such a great time with my sister!
Great food and service, had fun
Had a great time!! Food is amazing!!
Delicious food and beautiful decor. The outside doesn’t reflect the beauty inside
I was not familiar with this type of Spanish-Basque type cooking. The menu, on line with iPhone, was somewhat descriptive but I needed help. The owner was on top of it patiently explaining each item listed. I decided on their paella and we found out there was a special for an extra $10 it would come with a delicious salad and a special potato appetizer. Manuel also recommend the wine and offer a sample a red for wife and white for me which we end up ordering. The food was quite good but be warned there will be ample leftovers to take home. Manuel was the perfect host the ambiance was Iberian decor and done well. The restaurant follows safe COVID-19 guidelines and I felt safe during the whole time there. I would recommend this restaurant and will return when next visiting the area.
My wife and I ate here for Valentine's Day. We've been here before, but it's been a while. We were very pleased. The ambiance was fantastic. The food was excellent and the service was good as well. Overall a great dinner. We'll be back!
Excellent food excellent service! Would absolutely recommend!
Service was excellent. Restaurant was beautiful and clean. The food was good but wasn’t crazy about the steak. No char and it lacked flavor. All our remaining dishes were good.
The fried plantains were excellent and the yucca bread for appetizers was outstanding! We ordered the meat paella was amazing! The only thing we didn’t care for was the churros they were burnt. Plus we would have liked a vanilla sauce to choose from.
Staff is always super pleasant and willing to give suggestions. Get the Tres Leche! Thank me later.
Great service and great selection of tapas. Excellent meal, as always!
Hands down the best restaurant we’ve ever been too. The owner was nothing short of incredible, the atmosphere was so authentic and the food was AMAZING. I 10/10 recommend. Go and try out this place. I promise you won’t be disappointed
Awesome food and great service!! Would recommend to anyone looking for a great night out!
Ole Tapas is top notch excellent quality dining. It’s great for everyday dining as well as special occasions. Manuel and his family know how to run a restaurant. Food and service are consistently fabulous. There’s such a variety on the menu.
Ole' is quickly becoming one of our favorite restaurants in Newark. It is a Friday Date night special for us. Juan is an excellent server. The tapas are both traditional and unique in nature. The value is exceptionally reasonable. It has all of the ambience, hospitality, and tastiness we look for when we want to enjoy a delicious meal and time with one another. We're gonna be regulars and happy to establish una amistad with the Ole' Team.
The paella was out of this world! The sangria was delicious! And the staff was very attentive and helpful with ordering.
Fantastic service and food! Highly recommend it to all my friends
First time back meal was great as usual
Have yet to have a bad visit awesome family run business. Very personable
The social distance precautions didn’t detract from this great menu and meal.
Awesome restaurant. Waiter very knowledgeable about meals and wines. Even introduced me to some new Spanish beers
