Olón - Tropicana Atlantic City Ratings and Reviews
Celebrated a birthday and was not disappointed. New layout and decor give a light and "beachy" ambiance. Menu was very interesting with new and different items to explore. Service was great. It's a little expensive for a regular go-to dinner but perfect for special occasions or when you want to impress your date.
My mother and I were visiting Atlantic City for our annual birthday/mother's day celebration. We were familiar with chef Jose Garces' other restaurants, so we decided to try Olon. I made reservations for my actual birthday in anticipation of a great experience and we were not disappointed! We each enjoyed a creative and delicious cocktail at the bar before we were sat in the oceanfront dining room. Everyone that worked there was very friendly and pleasant. Our table had a wonderful view and we were guided with our wine and food choices. Everything that we consumed was fresh, creatively done, and fun to eat. They even surprised me with a birthday song and complimentary dessert designed by a talented kitchen!! Thank you Olon for making our trip wonderful!
The food and service were both excellent. Definite deterrent to have to walk thru the casino to get to the restaurant, the cigarette smoke was overpowering. Unfortunately, able to smell the cigarette smoke while dining, since the restaurant is open to the casino floor.
Smoke smell increased as the evening went on.
As said, excellent food, but would hesitate to return due to the cigarette smell.
We had a lovely experience at Olon for my 40th Birthday dinner, our waitress Doris was wonderful. The manager was attentive and most important the food was delicious. The menu was fun and creative. I had so many wonderful flavors in my mouth. From my Victoria Morena cocktail to the most delicious and tender Waygu Steak. The grilled skewers were so flavorful and delicious. Definitely get the guacamole and add the crab, its worth it. The restaurant is so beautifully and tastefully decorated. Really nice restaurant and away from the hustle bustle of the Havanna Towers at the Tropicana Hotel.
My wife, son, and I went to Olon for the first time and it will not be our last. The location, design and decor are superb. The food is outstanding. We enjoyed tapas , dinner and made room for dessert. Everything served was delicious. We ate in the main dining room with ocean views for every table. Outside seating is available. The bar/ lounge area is spacious with live music. We found a new favorite place. Try it? You'll love it!!
So glad to have Jose Garces back in AC! Restaurant is open and airy and a view of the ocean from all tables . Celebrated my 80th birthday and everyone made it special. Liz. our waitress was wonderful, explaining and recommending menu items. She was very attentive and we enjoyed talking with her. Cheese empanadas were so good as was the lobster. Lots of choices and everything is good. Perfect evening. Will be back soon.
A little disappointed with the restaurant. When checking in, the hostess and another employee were just standing there talking to each other...did not even acknowledge that we were standing there...and it was not even busy...we were he only ones in line. When they were finally done talking...probably a good few minutes, the hostess didn't even say hi or ask if we had reservations. She started to show us to our table and then she finally asked if we had reservations. The food was flavorful but way too salty. Our server was very good.
The food was delicious! It was so flavorful and Olon is now one of my favorite restaurants. Our server, Katy, was the absolute best. I don't think our dining experience would have been half as wonderful without her! I wish we lived closer so we could visit Olon (and Katy) every week!
The elevated gourmet complimentary "chips and salsa" were unique and unlike anything we've tasted. It was perfect for lunch- we had the fried fish plate, shrimp ceviche and wago steak sandwich with fries. Everything was delicious and had layers of flavor. Complexity of flavor, highest quality products. Wish we lived closer than 4 hours away.
As we entered the dining room, the length of it has an incredible view of the ocean. The seating is very comfortable, and you cannot hear the conversation of the neighboring tables. The service is excellent, knowledgeable, and helpful, and the food is fabulous. It is tapas, so we had many items and enjoyed every bite. You cannot go wrong with any choices on the menu. A superb evening!!
We dined at Olon and I can say the food was excellent. If you enjoy sharing plates and the Tapas Olon is just the place. We had the Wagu beef carpaccio and the Guacamole Olan as appetizers, both were excellent. We shared the Prawn Anticucho, fantastic flavors, Yucca fries with rocoto aioli, as well as the braised chicken empanadas and the spinach empanadas. We like the spinach empanadas more, but the chicken was still very tasty. Nice wine selection and price range. Just a wonderful meal and pleasant dining experience
Our meal at Oloń was the best meal we have ever had in Atlantic City. At first glance ordering from the unfamiliar menu selection seemed challenging, especially with our different likes/dislikes of food. But with the help of our wonderful server,Cindy, we were able to find a selection to please us both. Each of her suggestions including wine and dessert were perfect. We wouldn't have enjoyed the food as much without her guidance. We left satisfied and happy!
Took mom for her 88th birthday as we were staying at the Tropicana. Loved Olon!! The food was outstanding. I had made a request thru Open Table that it was moms 88th and I would appreciate a table with a nice waterview. Not only did they do that, mom was wished a Happy Birthday by the hostess who seated us and our server Barbara put a candle on moms dessert. I never mentioned moms birthday when we arrived for our reservation, so this shows that they do read our comments when making a reservation !!! Olon may be viewed as pricey by some, but was well beyond worth it. You can also just have drinks and a wide selection of tapas. Mom had the Lamb Chops and I had the Wagu Skirt Steak. They were phenomenal !! If your in Atlantic City, its a must !!!
