This Mac & Cheese is UNREAL. Creamy and delicious. We added truffle and it was such a game changer. You can't beat a macaroni like this
The Seabass is amazing. The veggies and sauce that come with the meal are so delicious, you will want to lick your plate. All the food is amazing! Not one bad option yet! Take out during the pandemic has been so seamless and great way to do date night at home. Super bonus points for hubby for picking up my favorite drink too. Absolutely Love Rich Girl' best drink in CM! I can't wait to go back!
The cheese board was beautifully prepared with a wide array of meats and cheeses. The herbed goat cheese was to die for ! Extra side of bread was very necessary.
Visited for the first time on our anniversary and we were amazed that everything was delicious from the agnolotti (be sure to get the fresh bread to soak up the brown butter) to the Mexican lime creme brulee!! We can't wait to go back to try more delicious food. 5 stars in our opinion!
Best deal in town. The mewt is cooked to perfection. We ordered it medium rare. It was juicy with a nice sear. I couldn't believe the amount of food we received. The vegetables and sides perfectly complemented the dish. Thank you chefs. You made this pandemic a liitle more bearable.
Delicious seabass, highly recommended for any fish lover!
Burger was excellent. Good quality meat, good bun and great toppings. And I could eat those fries all day!
The steak was steakhouse quality and medium rare was cooked to perfection. Provided a great full body cab to go with the meal!
This is one of my favorite restaurants ! We have dined in several times for special occasion or just because. The atmosphere is very pleasant, the service is great and the food is amazing. I've tried many different dishes and have never been disappointed . They also have really amazing cocktails with a special touch of creativity .thus is a must try restaurant if you like high quality food .
I will drive anywhere for good Schnitzel, and it's so rare to find a restaurant that has it. Well, I scored big time!! Olea has the best schnitzel, and their duck wings as a starter were exceptional. I could have been in the dining room @ the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY, where my parents took me growing up, because their chef here was definitely trained @ the best cooking school here! Love this place, can't wait to return.
Great value and generous portion. Thoughtfully paired with the right combination of salt, savory and creativity!
My absolute favorite charcuterie board in SoCal! Charcuterie is my favorite & I've tried many, I highly recommend. I miss it so much, ordering take out tonight.
You've got to try this burger! It is so good, my husband and I have each ordered one every Friday night for a month! Always cooked perfectly. Holds up deliciously well as take-out, even lettuce wrapped. Fries are HEAVENLY!
Sea Salt Roasted Heirloom Beets
So much flavor and variety in this salad - it's very fresh, the dressing is light and enhances the taste of the beets along with the citrus. My absolute favorite - add a side of grilled chicken and it makes a delicious entree. It's my "go-to" meal at Olea
Absolutely delicious. Boyfriend ordered the bottle to go, and he shook it at home and it gave us 8 to 9 martini glasses. We are both happy puppies right now! Oh, we also got the halibut and the Schnitzel which was mouth watering.. 😍
There are select few out there that understand that Mac & Cheese isn't just Mac & Cheese. This is always executed with love, flavor, PERFECT CRUMBS and consistent every time! By far #1 Mac of all time!
I've been on a personal hunt for the best burger in Newport for a couple years now. Although my wife and I have eaten at Olea many times, I've never tried the burger. Can I just say WOW! I'm not sure why I waited so long, but Olea's burger is PHENOMENAL. Highly recommend this place. They have fantastic cocktails (try dad's root beer), food, and a fun atmosphere.
You can not go wrong with ordering the bone in rib eye. Hands down the best I have ever eaten. My other favorite is their house made burger!
Chef's Daily Market Fresh Seafood
The lemon verbena Scottish salmon was excellently prepared. It was tender and very flavorful with the hint of lemon verbena. Definitely will order this entree as well as the kurobuto pork.
This salad is so crisp, fresh and full of flavor. It's the perfect starter before an entree. Won't leave you feeling overly full for the rest of the meal, just delicious.
I've been here a couple times now with friends and my boyfriend. First time I came here the appetizers were amazing!! I ordered something new which I didn't like but I loved the place anyway. My boyfriend and i came back and I got the Chilean sea bass which I asked the waitress about (sadly I forgot her name; it was a few weeks ago) and i told her I'd never had it and she insisted I get it. I'm glad I did it was so rich and so good!! Good portions too!! Their drinks are a lot of fun too, super good.
My wife and I took a vacation from the Arizona heat and had a wonderful meal at Olea restaurant. What a superb time: great staff, excellent food, pleasent/relaxing atmosphere, and an all encompassing wonderful time. Will be a great memory and we really want to come back soon (it is already on our list for next CA visit).
Delicious side dish, the texture of the brussel sprouts and the pork belly are unique. I really like that dish and the creme brulee!!👍🏻
So good! The chicken was juicy and crispy on the outside, and the spaetzle was very flavorful and perfectly cooked. All went really well the vegetables. Also, going to put a plug in for the soft shell crab dish (chef's daily seafood dish which I don't see in the drop down). SIMPLY. AMAZING. The grits it came with seemed like an unusual pairing but it worked so well together. Would definitely order again.
This dinner was incredible! We started with a round of oysters and cocktails, then moved right into this massive side of meat. I am sure that this could have been shared, but I am glad that I didn't have to split this as every bite seemed to get better than the first. I did veer from the blue cheese potatoes and I believe that the substitute was garlic mashed, which paired just as well. The other side hidden underneath were sopping up the peppercorn-cognac reduction while I carved away at this masterpiece. I usually like my ribeye fairly plain (salt & pepper) to let the dish speak for itself, however the chef had hit this one right on target with all ingredients. I washed it down with a craft beer and the finale was a simple "Anniversary" ice cream dish that topped off one of the best date night in a while. We will defiantly be back with some friends to share this gem of a restaurant!
Dad's Root Beer is an great drink and wonderful to sip after a great meal. We recently had the pork chop, fantastic.
I haven't had a good meal out in sooo long! The evening was perfect. We had amazing service as well. Shoutout to Sara for the great wine, & food recommendation, and service!!
The best schnitzel you will find outside of Europe! It is perfectly crispy and tender and perfectly paired with root vegetables. This is my go-to order, along with a side of truffle fries, and it's just too good to stray from.
These are the absolute best .... we get them every time we go!! We are locals and love to come to Olea on date night and sit at the bar watching them make all the wonderful craft cocktails. Many many other dishes are wonderful as well. Some of our favs are the short ribs, burger, filet mignon .....
Served hot, to a crisped perfection. These wings are prepared wonderfully from the crunch on the outside to the meat that glides right off the bones! The glaze that sits both over and beneath the wings give it such a mouth watering satisfaction. You really could never have enough of these. Rich. Juicy. Crispy. Sweet. Savory. Signature Crispy Meyer Lemon Duck Wings
This file is probably one of the best I've ever had. I don't eat a lot of meat so when I do I'm very picky. It was cooked to perfection and the temperature was spot on. I live around the corner luckily so getting this to go during me to go only world we live in at the moment… Was amazing. Thank you so much!
Ordered from Door Dash. It was dry overcooked and completely flavorless. So was the spaetzle. Also ordered the Wagyu burger our request was well done and it was medium rare.
This dessert was absolutely delicious! And, btw, Inga the bartender, makes amazing craft cocktails!
The duck wings are our favorite! We are so glad they opened Olea here in Newport. Otherwise we had to travel down to The Vine in San Clemente. Equally as amazing!!
Terrine of Duck Liver, Bacon & Bourbon
Hi!! I love olea'- love the people more and then there is the food and handcraft cocktails!!!! You CAN'T go wrong with anything on the menu- My favorite is the cheese board so balanced with aged balsamic and honey seasonal tastes -savory cheeses then add sweet candied pecans on top of a grilled rustic bread! Yum- Thank you olea' and wish you the best during these trying times.
These are absolutely delicious! The truffle with pumpkin is a wonderful combination. The hazelnut brown butter combined with the sage leaves offers a light and herbal decadent flavor. It perfectly complemented my Crispy Jidori Entree (must have!). Love this restaurant; can't go wrong with anything here.
I loved the balance between sweet and savory. The pumpkin helps it feel substantial and the cheese helps balance everything out with a creamy touch. Excellent! Would order again.
Sounds strange, but they are SO good. Perfect sweet and chocolatey bite to end a great meal.
I recently dined at 0LEA . I'm a fan of the schnitzel . It was prepared Perfectly. This restaurant has a great atmosphere and well balanced menu. Always a delight to dying here.
