The Filet was cooked to perfection! Best fried green tomatoes. We enjoyed the lively atmosphere. Did I mention the service was top-notch.
The sweet corn & roasted garlic agnolotti at Olea does that such thing. First, the presentation is appetizing and screams to be devoured. I do not recommend giving into that urge. Savor every bite. Cutting into your first agnolotti, you'll feel the resistance of the fresh pasta dough pushing back on your knife, forcing you to tear through with gluttony. The sweet corn will ooze out. This is by design. Scrape it up with some of the sauce, some basil and roasted nuts for the ultimate culinary experience in one bite. If it wasn't for ordering four courses (yes, I had to try more and more food at Olea to make sure the first dish wasn't a fluke) I would have another two helpings of this dish. I will definitely be back, and soon.
It was the best seafood I have ever had. i recommend to all my friends and they loved it.
This is the best burger in O.C. Has a unique flavor and super juicy. This and the pork belly Brussel sprouts are amazing!
Extremely flavorful, cooked perfectly. Great starter
Two people in our party had this dish and it was wonderful. It was cooked to perfection and had a great taste!
A nice fresh salad that complimented the sweet corn/garlic agnolotti! The butter lettuce was refreshing and light, paired well with the tangy herbed goat cheese. Great addition to the meal!
The best chilean sea bass I have ever enjoyed! The sea bass was prepared exquisitely well, with a nice sear bark while remaining delicately soft and buttery. The fresh assortment of vegetables was a nice compliment, making the dish light while focusing on the sea bass.
The wagyu burger was so delicious and by far better than Capital Grille's wagyu burger. The margaritas were great too!
My wife & I had our first visit to Olea last Thursday. We sat at the bar and had dinner. The food and service were excellent! We even met our friend Big Joe at the bar! Will return for sure!
The service at Olea is phenomenal, along with the great ambiance and fresh, delicious food, you can't go wrong when you dine here.
I love love love this place. I have dined here at least a dozen times and have never been disappointed. The people are gracious and friendly from the owners to the Clean up crew. The menu is focused yet has choices for all tastes. The rib eye is fantastic and the beef cheek stroganoff is killer. I have been through the menu of land offerings and all are great. My wife always orders something from the sea and always raves. My compliments and best wishes to Kevin, Patrick and Russ.
Just simply mouth watering
Had the scallops as a special.. Best. Scallops. Ever. They were fantastic--tasty light sauce, cooked just right. Accompanied by mashed potatoes and numerous veggies (green beans, carrots, onion, shallot, more). Olea has the best veggies hands down! Our server, Keith, was very engaging and knowledgeable and added to our dining experience. Terrific meal!
This is just one of the best I have ever had. Arrived at the table and I said i can't eat all this. 30 minutes later, the plate was clean. That's how good this is. Get it!! Eat it!!
This dessert is so fire! One of my favorite desserts I have ever had.
You haven't eaten till you have been to Olea. Russ, Gabe, Kevin, Chef Paul and the others really have put together a great OC restaurant from top to bottom. Great atmosphere, great food, great people. Definitely one of OC's best. Try the goat cheese. Any streak will truly delight you. DONT MISS THIS PLACE!
Generous enough for two...the presentation is beautiful and flavor is delicious. What I love most about Olea is the VIBE of the people who serve and those they attract.
Absolutely wonderful. Flavors complimented each other perfectly without overwhelming the oysters. Also enjoyed the mac n cheese which was creamy and crusty at the same time. Perfect adult comfort food. And.... the creme brûlée. So sinful good, the only thing needed was more of it! Maybe we should have ordered our own and not shared. The staff were attentive, friendly, knowledgeable and present. Pair that with the upscale yet casual vibe and wonderful food and you simply cannot go wrong.
First time at this restaurant and the food was fabulous! I had the oyster appetizer, chicken schnitzel entree with the rich girl cocktail. The crispy chicken schnitzel was surprisingly a large dish, great bang for your buck and the oysters were very fresh. Also loved their crafty list of cocktails with fresh ingredients!
My fav Olea hack....pair with Duck Wings or pork belly! Freaking amazing ❤️
absolutely amazing, my go-to every visit. Gotta try something else but i'm addicted....
4 of us shared the Brussel sprouts and they were delicious. There was a a generous amount of brussel spouts that were cooked perfectly .
Sat at the bar and had 3 amazing appetizers including the cheeseboard. It was packed with a variety of items...all wonderful! I will definitely be back for that alone. Great atmosphere.
This dish was amazing! You can taste how fresh the pasta is, soft but still firm. The sweet corn and roasted garlic was soo tastily paired with the goat cheese! Looking forward to ordering this dish again.
I love this place. I've been here twice now. Once with group of overseas guests who were extremely impressed and another time by myself. The food is so delicious. The burger is incredible with the truffle fries. Make sure you're hungry if you order this one. The Wagyu just melts in your mouth! I especially like the kind people who work at Olea they treat customers like royalty. Thanks all at Olea.
Absolutely Amazing! I would eat this every day if I could!
Dined here for the first time on a Monday night. Tried several dishes, and they were all delicious! My husband loved the fried lobster, duck confit was really good, so was the duck wings and the blue crab baked oysters. Can't wait for our next meal there.
The Steak was cooked and seasoned to perfection. Finally a restaurant that has flavor, style and a experience their staff brings that has you coming back to try everything on the menu. This place can definitely beat Bobby Flay.
Sweet Corn & Roasted Garlic Agnolotti
There are few dishes in my foodie career that strike such a balance between flavor, texture, smell and emotion. These dishes stand out, make your palate salivate with a single thought, and bring back memories with anything similar. The sweet corn & roasted garlic agnolotti at Olea does that such thing. First, the presentation is appetizing and screams to be devoured. I do not recommend giving into that urge. Savor every bite. Cutting into your first agnolotti, you'll feel the resistance of the fresh pasta dough pushing back on your knife, forcing you to tear through with gluttony. The sweet corn will ooze out. This is by design. Scrape it up with some of the sauce, some basil and roasted nuts for the ultimate culinary experience in one bite. If it wasn't for ordering four courses (yes, I had to try more and more food at Olea to make sure the first dish wasn't a fluke) I would have another two helpings of this dish. I will definitely be back, and soon.
Delicious! Fresh bun, high quality meat. Most importantly for me, the burger was cooked as I specified and it stayed together while I ate it. The fries were some of the best I have had!
I can't wait to try this!
Not only is the burger amazing the fries are always cooked perfectly. They pile them on and I some how finish them every time! Get extra ketchup :)
Farmer's Market Vegetables & Organic Italian Farro
Amazing meal from start to finish! Great cocktails. We started with a great bottle of wine and meat and cheese board. We then ordered the rib eye and seasonal veggie dish. Love the fresh and seasonal food. The service was great and the atmosphere was relaxed and inviting. This is a great new restaurant. Will definitely be back... and sooner than later!
My date and I started with the oysters, delish. I ordered the special, mussels and clams and he ordered the double r ranch bone-in ribeye! I am not kidding you, some of the best food I've ever had, especially in Costa Mesa. We can not WAIT to come back!!
