No one attended for guests drink we had to leave the table to ask the waitress for a bottle of water. As for the chef well...The menu listed a Jordanian Mansaf, what was delivered was some lumpy rice that looked like Makloba with chicken! Something really unpalatable for a main dish. Thank god for the frill, otherwise it would have a catastrophic dinner. As for the portion of the appetizer.. well one word for that minuscule

The food, service, and variety was amazing. The staff was very friendly. The live entertainment for New Year was very very primitive, and the singer kept on taking breaks throughout the night. The overall ambiance was not New Year ready.

I was disappointed that there were no live booking stations. After having attended a number of brunches, I didn't feel that this one was particularly special in terms of selection or service.

The staff are very welcoming and the place is simply elegant. Christmas live music was amazing, I felt the Christmas spirit in this Restaurant. The guy who first assisted us was really accommodating,... He said he visited Cebu, Kudos! to you, thank you for accommodating us. Good job!

My wife and I had celebrated her birthday in Olea, staff were very kind to decorate our table with candles and roses very nice of them. Food was great, amazing Syrian dishes. Managers were so kind. They provided us with a nice birthday cake, thank you. Being a hotelier, I just would like to recommend 2 things, first, such an amazing Arabic restaurant like Olea, you need nice Arabic background, it gives nicer atmosphere. Second, For Valet, you can feel it that they are short of manning, pretty much 15 minutes to get the car, for us it was fine we were enjoying at your lobby, however a lot of guests were complaining while they were waiting for their cars too, this is just a feedback, not a complaint at all, thank you once again

We selected Olea as we were looking for a more moderately priced restaurant for our last night in Dubai. The menu at Olea is broad, but our server, Mohammed made our evening! When looking at the mezze to start with he recommended the chicken livers and the flat bread with minced lamb both were excellent as was the soup. We chose the Mixed Grill and WOW was there a lot of food. Again, all of it excellent. We had started with a cocktail as they were reasonably priced. With dinner we were going to have a glass of wine but they were pretty pricey ($18US/glass) so we passed. We were also too full for dessert. Olea is highly recommended for a great meal at a good price.
