olea - New Haven
Excellent food and service! The gazpacho is amazing, the crusted ravioli was divine.
Amazing service and great food. Friendly wait staff and great atmosphere. All around awesome restaurant.
Our second visit and this time we brought friends. It was just as deliciously oustanding as our fist time.
Olea continues to be the finest restaurant in New Haven. The chef is a true talent. The food is fresh, inventive and always delicious. Best of all there are always new additions and now a prix fix menu. The gazpacho and Iberico ham are delicious. The red snapper crispy and perfectly plated. The seafood risotto creamy and tasty the service is excellent. Always a treat. Again, . The best restaurant in New Haven.
As always, wonderful dinner and excellent considerate service. Our favorite restaurant in New Haven. Highly recommend.
Held a special reunion of old friends and we enjoyed an absolutely delicious meal, particularly the pulpo, ceviche, and croquetas as small plate appetizers, and fideuà, solomillo, and special arroz entrées.
Phenomenal in every way. Best restaurant in New Haven.
Olea is a wonderful experience; my favorite New Haven Restaurant. Great menu choices that are interesting and creative and an excellent wine list. The staff is knowledgeable and attentive.
This is a lovely restaurant with excellent food and excellent service. There was only one problem: the cochinillo, which we really wanted to have, was not available. This was on a Saturday night, and it’s one of the most attractive items on the entire menu. We were very disappointed. But we were nonetheless delighted with the overall experience. (One more thing: the pours on the wine and sherry were both stingy and uneven.)
Appetizers and entrees were outstanding. Our waiter kindly suggested the best wine paring and it was perfect. Just the right amount of food beautifully presented.
The desserts were “over the top” delicious.
We cannot wait to go back.
Always amazing! My favorite restaurant for food, cocktails and service. It is a step above all others. Menu changes with the seasons. I love trying new things here. I have never had a meal I didn't love. We usually enjoy their tasting menu, a way to get lots of flavors and a leisurely meal.
The food here is out of this world, every time. One of our favorite places anywhere.
Excellent service, diverse menu, delicious food beautifully presented.
Chef Manuel Romero has done it again! An amazing meal. I love that the menu at Olea change seasonally, and during this meal we had a variety of courses and despite having come here often over the years each course was new and delightful. We usually order the tasting menu and are always glad we did. This Chef has a wonderful gift for melding different flavors in new and delicious ways. The service was impeccable, always available but never intrusive. The original cocktails are always great. Cannot recommend this restaurant strongly enough. It is my absolute favorite for any and all occasions.
Beautiful space, our table was the best for a special occasion, the service excellent. The food delicious.
So yummy. The food is clearly a step above most restaurants. The Foie Gras is amazing!
The restaurant is modern and well decorated. The service and food was very good. The waiter was knowledgeable. The only downside is that the cocktails are expensive and VERY WATERED DOWN. If you are going for a meal, don't order a cocktail....you'll feel a little ripped off. Everything else was great.
The absolute best Spanish restaurant we've encountered outside of Spain! The food is amazing and authentic and the service is simply spectacular! We can't wait to go back!
Food and service were EXCEPTIONAL. We celebrated our friends’ birthdays at a great window table and our server thoughtfully brought out our desserts with candles.
Delicious food, excellent service, nice ambiance
The food was excellent, the service was exceptional, and the experience was exactly what we were looking for.
Flawless meal - every dish comes out perfect. Not your typical Spanish restaurant - this is an elevated meal experience
Great Spanish food and attentive service. I will definitely go back for more.
Great restaurant, the food was outstanding and the ambiance complements the entire dining experience. I will deffinitevely come back and recommend this restaurant.
Fabulous food and superior service always a pleasure to dine there
Great food, good service. A little hard to understand the waiter.
Always a wonderful dining experience. The food is superb and the service outstanding. I feel welcomed as soon as I walk in, and cared for during the meal. The chef has a real gift for combining flavors to make each course delicious. The presentation of each dish is exceptional. The cocktails are also amazing.
The food is amazing!!! Great service!!!
There was a large group, VERY NOISY, & acting like they owned the entire dining room! It was a private group, but no separate room, no barrier of any kind!! I ask the manager to please tell them to dial down the noise as there are OTHER PAYING guests in the dining room & some of us are SENSITIVE to noise level!! They should have either booked the entire restaurant or the restaurant should have informed other guests!! I would have NOT booked there had I known!! The restaurant did nothing!! I eventually told one person from the group how obnoxious their noise level is to OTHER guests!!!
Great ambience, service and food, and all within a few steps of Yale’s great museums. Highly recommend.
I've always had fabulous meals at Olea. This time, I was celebrating with a friend. The menu had new options along with some of my favorites. Every dish was intriguing
and delicious - a feast for all the senses. Service was prompt, friendly and unobtrusive. Definitely a place to enjoy a special occasion.
Overall a great experience. Excellent service and food! It was our anniversary and they made a special little celebratory dessert for us! I’d definitely recommend Olea!
Olea is always superb from the food, wine, cocktails right down to the service
Food: so good that it makes the world stop for a moment -- you take a bite and just slow down and enjoy. Service: attentive but not fussy.
Atmosphere: How nice to eat in a place that's quiet!
Always great food with superb service. Especially good for before going to a play at the Shubert.
Hands down best resturant in town
Great food and service. The croquettes were exceptional. Lovely personalized dessert plates. Definitely coming back.
The food here is wonderful. The space is great. Service is adequate.
