The place for a first date. 9/17/2008

I went there not expecting the caliber of dessert we received. It was plated beautifully and fresh made to order. The bartender Kristianna could not be any more attentive and knowlegible on the food. She made some recommendations that I was very pleased with. The Chef Enrique came out to see how we were doing and if we enjoyed the treat. Krisitanna made a wicked martini also. Five thumbs up from me. I made a great choice picking that night for the atmosphere was perfect we chatted and got to know each other. Pros: grest service and prices more

Missed work - Thanks Ole 4/4/2008

Sooo It is 1pm and I am just getting up. Well actually I was up earlier to call work and ""fib"" that I wasn't feeling well. Well I guess that isn't too far from the truth - I am extremely hung over. I blame the staff of Ole for this :) more

Anniversary Party 4/4/2008

I went there last night with a few of my girlfriends for their one year Anniversary Event. We had such a blast! The place was packed with a great vibe. Upstairs there was at least 100 people so the energy was way up there. They had this great Gypsy Kings style band playing until we left at 11pm - oh by the way got there at 7pm. They had a complimentary open bar serving 10 Cane cocktails and lots and lots of passed yummy appetizers - like a Lobster Bisque, red pepper tapenade crostini. We ventured downstairs and got a free manicure while we sipped on some chamgpagne. more

1st Impression 4/2/2008

I have to say I am really surprised that there a couple negative reviews. I went there for the first time last night and I had a really good time. If you are looking for Aria or Everst type of food, service or ambiance - well good luck with that. Ole was really comfortable, really good tapas and the service was extremely friendly. What a good time to pick for my first time as they just started $1 Tapas. Knowing I was only spending $1 - I didn't expect much but I can honestly say that I was really surprised. We got the Turkey Chorizo, Poblano pepper, stuffed mushrooms and 2 diffrent crostinis - all well worth the buck PLUS they were really tasty. Also they have one of the best drink lists I've seen or tasted in a long time. Though a little ""fruity"" they were superb!. We got a blueberry martini - then a watermelon - then a strwaberry then some sort of lemondae inspired drink. Simply put we took a cab home. The server was nice enough to actually flag one down for us. more

Great Vibe - Great Scene 3/30/2008

I've heard some good things about this little place so me and the boys went up for some ""pre-going out"" dinner. Our server in addition to being really cute was really good as well. We started off with some Sangria and that really set the tone for the rest of the night. To be honest I remember the food being really good but the Sangria was ""too good"". After multiple carafes of Sangria and feeling pretty good we were going to leave but realized the lounge side of this place was looking pretty full. We made our way over and it was on!!!! Pros: Great Vibe Cons: Sangria caused me a really bad hangover :) more

3 times and counting 3/29/2008

I have been there 3 times and have really enjoyed Ole. My wife and I live a half of dozen blocks away. Our first time was for a co-workers birthday party. She had it in there private party room - which was alot of fun! My wife and I have been there twice since. It is nice to go to a place where even after only going there a couple times they made us feel very comfortable. Their food is rather good. The shrimp in chocolate sauce is a must. Nice and afforadable wine list. Interesting cocktails and very good sangria. more
