    Hadn't been in a long time. The food is decent, but not amazing. The service was really spotty. Main courses came out 10 minutes apart. Our orders had lots of errors. It was just a frustrating visit.

    Our water was refilled many times but we were never offered a second drink nor given the opportunity to ask. Our waitress was absent for the majority of our visit. We would've loved to have a second cocktail. It's a wonderful establishment and we will definitely be back. There were only four different tables filled at the time we were there so we don't really understand what the issue was.

    We enjoy this place for reliable Mexican food and generally easy parking. It can be loud. They do a great job with groups. Food is very good and service swift. In the warmer weather it usually very nice to dine outside.

    The fresh made guacamole was excellent...we ordered a second round! My carne asada was a bit dry, but otherwise tasty. Portions are smaller than I remember (pre-pandemic was my last visit) and a more casual vibe with a walk-up counter and billboard menu. Still a nice place to go. It was a birthday celebration but no offering of a dessert. Sill, I would go back.

    Unfortunately, our service was poor (e.g. wrong drink delivered, no offer to exchange drink when error was pointed out, and charged us for the drink; didn’t get side plates we requested, no one checked to see if we needed anything and we did need things like flatware) and it wasn’t busy. The food wasn’t up to what we’ve had in the past either (even the beans were undercooked). We were really disappointed, because we’ve loved Ole in the past. The lobster quesadilla and queso fundido were still good, but I won’t be able to convince any of our party to go back.

    We went here for Mother's Day and not only was the food excellent, but they also gave me a rose with a nice note. Great mojitos, steak and shrimp fajitas, and carnitas enchiladas. And bonus: there was enough food for dinner so I didn't have to cook!

    Took a very long time. Couldn't get server's attention. Never received chips/salsa. Ordered Guac, which they brought at end but told us they ran out of chips and left. How do you eat the guacamole? Still charged for it. So disappointed. But food still delicious.

    Took 30 minutes to get sat down for our reservation. Our server didn’t come over for the first 30 minutes as well. Guacamole was good. Tacos el pastor was ok, chicken fajitas were not cooked and tortillas were clearly reheated poorly. Manager who was the host did not properly take into account the amount of reservations they should take as people stood on top of our table when we could barely fit the food, was making me feel slightly unsanitary. Despite being the manager, he told ever other patron it was a 15 minute wait “for reservations” even though it was clearly 30+ minutes and he knew it.

    The food was good and the general vibe was nice, although a bit loud. Unfortunately our server seemed out of it and when she brought two beef dishes to the table that were cooked to medium temp when the orders were for medium rare she elected to argue that my husband and my daughter both said medium and not medium rare when they ordered. Aside from the fact that this was not true, the fact that she took such a confrontational approach to the situation was off putting. We weren’t even looking to send it back or change anything so we were sort of baffled by the whole thing. Again the food was pretty good but not worth the attitude.
