Very good indeed with a few glitches right from the start , I was thoroughly disappointed. I had a party of 14 ppl to celebrate my daughter's HS graduation. I went for the prefix dinner menu $25 for 3 course meal. I would give a 4 star if it was not for the following: They are in transition (new manager/cousin of original manager) who stepped in temporarily (NICO). I was disappointed to be told on the spot that the menu was scaled down from approximately 7 options for main entree to just three. (Spagetii and meatballs, chicken entree and salmon) Escargots for appetizer is nixed. The wine list for prefix also scaled down to just two whites and a red. I was not pleased with last minute change to menu, since I called to make reservations a few days prior and confirmed options with co/manager Ina. I asked so many questions, from decoration options (I asked if balloons were okay) to asking about available parking, to asking if they had a high chair for my 5 yo niece, I am telling you that yes I am that type of person. I do my research and want to make sure of THE DETAILS so as to ensure a pleasant dining experience. Positives: The meal was DELISH!! The actual food when it came out was delicious, great portions, fresh ingredients, they obviously cook to order so the wait for the food was pretty long, uncomfortable. The app I selected was mixed green salad with balsamic, (nice sized salad) We also ordered calamari as additional app. entree was baked spinach stuffed chicken breast in a buttery sauce with mashed potatoes. The finale was the tiramisu which was a wonderful surprise in terms of presentation and taste. Negatives/room for improvement: I have to say that I would recommend that they immediately fix the online details of their prefix since I felt it was false advertisement. Another negative was that due to front windows being open, it was a bit warm inside, ac was barely felt. The other thing is that they seem to be understaffed causing long wait after one is seated to receive at least bread and our first glass of wine. Practically an hour wait once we placed the order, very strange,,I do believe it is due to being understaffed both at the front of the house and in the back... The establishment is family owned, the current manager NICO is hard working, must give him credit where its due. I recommend this restaurant. I look forward to visiting again to try their shrimp/scallop risotto dish which looks amazing..

Absolutely fabulous! I tried dishes I never thought I would and they were amazing. Celebrated my bday with the $25 early bird special and it is truly one of the best deals in Bklyn. Go Go Go and don't doubt the choice!!

Olla is an awesome place. the food is great, the drinks are good the service is stupendous. I usually dig into their cheese and cured meat plate for starters with a nice glass of wine( great list) and top it off with their lamb ragu or hangar steak. I tried many things on the menu the salads and are interesting as well as their specials but i love the steak though. stay thirsty my friends

This place was a bit quiet when we went for dinner, but the food was great and the portions pretty big. The wine is delicious!

Went to the Olla Wine Bar for Brunch to celebrate my birthday. We went on September 30th, which was also the day of the Third Avenue fair, so we thought that the service might be compromised just a bit because the place was packed! We were wrong, the service was impeccable and the food amazing! We were treated as if we were the only table in the restaurant, before an empty glass was placed on the table we had a fresh drink (we opted for the $13 unlimited drinks.) We did not have to wait for our food nor was it brought out to us before we were ready, we had a nice amount of time in between courses, it was perfect timing. The wait staff was very intent on making sure we had everything we wanted/needed, checked up on us numerous times, but without being overbearing. We were also given free dessert, a tiramisu and a warm, lava chocolate cake, delicious, along with two $20.00 gift certificates, what a deal! There is not one thing that we could complain about, fabulous restaurant! We will be back!

I had the steak and eggs, my boyfriend had the steak sandwich. Both were delicious. They have unlimited drinks for $13 per person (Mimosas, Bellinis, Screwdrivers, Bloody Mary's, don't remember what else). We had a few bellinis, a mimosa, a screwdriver. It was all good. It was also very nice of them to bring out a free dessert, even if it tasted bad. It was a coffee flan, neither of us are fans of coffee.
