I went here with some friends and we were not impressed. The service was HORRIBLE! It took over 10 minutes for us to get water and the place was practically empty! If it's that sl...


wow! a hidden treasure on Ventura Blvd. 3/9/2011

I love the small plate concept. we ordered lots of tapas to share and shared one steak entre, which was very good. my favorite was the seafood tart. the sauce on it was sooooo yummy! their white sangria is the best i ever had. i highly recommend everyone to try their sangria. red or white they were both good. more

Terrible Food 2/19/2011

TERRIBLE FOOD. This is some of the worst food I have eaten. The service was equally slow and bad. The spanish omelet tasted like burned dirty dish water. The mussels were too salty and chewy. The steak was chewy and cold. The crab bisque and gazpacho were good. This place is not worth your money. I don't know how a place like this can even stay in business. more

Cool Spanish Vibe 7/13/2010

Need the perfect date place? This is it. Ole! has a great selection of Spanish wines which I rather enjoyed. There is plenty of seating, giving you the chance to get better acquainted with a hot date over some hot tapas! Food could have been better, but definitely nothing that I would send back. Sauteed mushrooms and onions is always a winner for me and the fried goat cheese with honey was the business! The staff was super friendly, giving me all the more reason to return. Pros: Great Ambience Cons: Food was mediocre more

Studio City best kept secret 6/1/2010

We have lived in Studio City for many years and have always considered Mexicali as our favorite restaurant until we found Ole. Great intimate atmosphere...inside or out. Outstanding exotic drink menu with Sangria margaritas our favorite. What we like the best is that they have an extensive Tapas menu so you can share 3 or 4 or as many items in an evening. My favorite..jumbo coconut shrimp in an orange tangy sauce served in a martini glass...deep fried goat cheese...empanadas...seared scallops...great salads...very extensive and wide range of foods. Always perfectly prepared. Carlos the manager is awesome...always very friendly and making you feel special...a very nice getaway from our hectic lives if only for an hour or two! Pros: intimate,cozy getaway with unusual tasty food Cons: only open evenings more

Wow! 2/2/2010

I loved it! The food was Amazing and the drinks really kicked my a@@! I will be back a lot! more

Tapas, Sangria and More 5/10/2009

I love Spain, and have visited her a couple of times in the recent past. And I have enjoyed a variety of regional dishes, wines and mostly tapas that have sustained me throughout my travels. And it is my pleasure to report that Ole Tapas Bar is a breath of warm and dusky Iberian air right here in the San Fernando Valley. Pros: Ambience, menu selections, table staff Cons: None of any consequence noted more

Fabulous place!!!! Just had my engagement party here 2/23/2009

I have been to this restaurant a hand full of times and I really like to food and the staff has always been super friendly. I just got engaged and wanted to have an engagement party somewhere near where I live, some place that was nice but also casual and somewhere that had good food. I thought of this place and boy, was I happy. We had around 50 people show up and we had the bar/ lounge area and a couple tables near the bar just for us. The food was terrific!! The staff, again, was so so nice!! And everybody really enjoyed themselves and just loved this place. Also, the sangria, white and red, is awesome. I seriously could not say anything bad about this place...and by the way, in an economy like this one, if you still are able to go out and eat, the prices here are super. I highly recommend Ole' :) Pros: friendly staff, great food, love the artwork, sangrias Cons: none! more

Nice ambience... 1/17/2009

this place is a nice local place. no long waiting line. we just went in a sat right down. i liked that they had a full bar so i can get my drink on. the food was surprisingly good. we have to go back and try other tapas we didn't get to try. more

great local find! 1/10/2009

i heard about this place from a friend. i thought i try this place out and i absolutely loved it. i enjoyed all the tapas i ordered. my fav was the tuna and avocado salad. the environment was friendly and cozy. i would definitely go back again and again. more

WOW 10/15/2008

i took my friend for her special 30th birthday. wow. i was impressed. i wasn't expecting much and we had food, great wine, great sangria, and great service. i really liked it a lot. the waitress had brought over a fruit dessert plate with candles for my friend. we planned to go a bar after dinner but we just chatted the night away. Pros: free parking. great tapas. FULL BAR. good service. great atmosphere more

Wow 9/28/2008

I'm no 'foodie' or wine snob, but I know what's good, and this place was good enough to get me to write my first review. Pros: Free Parking, Great Food, Full Bar, Good Service Cons: We just loved it! more

Great bar. warm ambiance and knowledgeable staff... 9/27/2008

So, we have driven by this place a hundred times, and finally stopped in and had a blast! I've been to most places on Ventura and have to say this was a great place for a girls' night (as we did) or to meet an old friend out. The bar had a great bartender who knew his wines really well and made us feel like we stepped into Barcelona for the evening... It was a thursday and got fairly busy, but never too busy to chat with the staff or conversate about the great tapas...Try the Sangria Martini and the Placa Caliente (sampler platter)!! Fantastic! more

Great local place 8/29/2008

i was very glad when my friend referred this place to me. i had the sangria for the first time and it was great! then i tried 3 different tapas. the aoili sauce is to die for. the tapas filled me up so i didn't order any main dish. i'm a petite person so the portion was good enough for me. if my boyfriend came here then he would of have to order a main dish to feel full. i thought the service was friendly unlike what the other reviewer has said. i would go back with my bf. Pros: sangria and tapas Cons: self parking more

Poor Service 8/24/2008

The service was not attentive at all. My friend and I had to request refills of our drinks. The food overall was marginal but we sent back one dish that did not fit the description listed in the menu. The escargot tasted like a sweet and sour soup and was sent back. I felt like I had to offer an explanation for sending back the escargot dish because the staff seemed reluctant to take it back. I only sampled the dish with a few bites and found the taste so different to any escargot I had ever had and not to my liking at all. The ambience is nice with red color scheme, and lighting, but overall, the food was rather bland, nothing special, and the service left much to be desired, and bill too high in price for the service and food offered. Pros: ambience Cons: service, food, price more

Not impressed 6/25/2008

I went here with some friends and we were not impressed. The service was HORRIBLE! It took over 10 minutes for us to get water and the place was practically empty! If it's that slow, there is no excuse on bad service. The food was bland and boring and overall we were disappointed. I had hoped it would be good - it looks like a cute location but is not worth the stop. Pros: can't think of any... Cons: Bad service, bland food more

Not good at all! 5/25/2008

Horrible! I'm from Spain and I know good tapas. This ones were not even close. The place is lovely, you can go for a drink, but avoid the food. more

Good but expensive food, ok service 5/17/2008

Went there last week on a Saturday with my wife. We did not make reservations and had to pay for this mistake by having to sit outside on a cold evening. What puzzled me was that the restaurant did not seem to be even at 60% capacity... Anyways, it took them about 10-15 minutes to remember that we were waiting to order our drinks - annoying. The waitress that took care of us the rest of the evening realized that our experience had a bad start and seemed to put some extra effort into it. We had ""Caracoles con el chorizo"" (snails... to die for!), ""Empanada de carne"" (ok), ""Ceviche Ole"" (average), and Sangria. We liked the sangria quite a bit, and should have gone for the pitcher from the beginning. Overall, it's worth the visit even though it's on the pricey side for the very small portions of food. more
