    EVERYTHING was wonderful! Having lived in the SF Bay Area for many years, it’s easy to be jaded about cuisine elsewhere. Oh Lala made us VERY HAPPY. It’s a must try! We’ll def be going back.

    Enjoyed a great evening with my wife. Food was very good, wine selection not bad, ambience really nice in a small setting - great for conversation and an intimate setting. Felt less hustle and bustle to 5th Ave.

    Oh la la is a wonderful choice. Food is top notch and is matched by the service. I like to eat the curry (three to choose from). My sons like to eat everything g in site so we ordered most of the appetizers. All were excellent. Go there is you want a refined dinner in playa. Far from the stuff you get on 5th. Just sit back and enjoy the experience.

    I have had a lot of delicious meals in PDC over the years, but this was the best one hands down. We had the scallops, octopus, and beef tenderloin. I couldn’t tell you a favorite because everything was a perfect 10. The restaurant is beautiful and the staff are incredibly kind. I don’t have enough kind words to describe how lovely Oh La La is - if you’re any bit of a foodie, this is an absolute must visit in PDC.

    We come here every year for a special anniversary dinner (we own this week in a timeshare) since they opened. Always a great meal and experience! Pricy for the area, but on a caliber much higher that the general restaurants in the area. Could fit well in NYC area, where we are from. If you are in PdC, and celebrating something special, this is THE place to go.

    I had dinner here last night for my partner's 50th birthday and to say this was anything short of an “experience” is an understatement. The ambiance is lovely and perfect for a special or intimate dinner. We had duck tacos and pita bread with rosemary for appetizers. For our main course, we had a lamb curry dish and a coconut beef curry dish. The aromatic smells from each plate almost took us to another place, and the taste, OMG. The layers of spices were all pleasingly balanced. We both savored every bite. It was indeed an experience from start to finish. The food was excellent and delicious. To top it off, they surprised us with a dessert for my partner's birthday. A very nice surprise and end to the evening. Overall this was a wonderful experience and the BEST food we ate while in playa. If you’re looking for a delicious place to eat, that has fresh great tasting food and excellent service this is the place! Hands down much better quality food experience than bigger chain places.

    We had dinner last night at this restaurant: food is out of this world! Two of us tried curry which was amazing, one tried the steak which he was extremely happy with and the 4th person had jumbo shrimp which was one of the best. The hostess ( Clarita) had a great attitude, her sense of humor and service made our experience even more pleasant. If you’re in town, you definitely shouldn’t miss the opportunity of eating at this little gem.

    I made a reservation for four of us while we were on vacation and we were very happy I did so. Our meal was incredible. The presentation was beautiful and the food was fantastic. As good as the food was, the service was equally good, or maybe even better. Our server was very friendly and professional, and we had several visits from who I believe was the manager, or maybe the owner who was also very friendly. We sat outside and the manager came to ask us if we saw a little black cat, who apparently shows up every night for her steak that she only eats medium rare. A few minutes later the cat showed up just hung out until it got its steak. It was a very unique experience. All in all, we were completely satisfied with every aspect of our dinning experience at Oh La La. we will definitely go back if we get another chance.

    The food was outstanding the butter tuna was great and the rack of lamb and filets were melt in your mouth good and cooked to perfection. The prawn and duck tacos were so good we almost just ordered them again and skipped the main course. The service was unbelievable and extremely attentive. The wines were unbeatable. All in all a perfect experience and well worth the price.

    Excellent as always, however we should mention that when booking I stated it was our Anniversary dinner and nothing was said or done when other occasions (birthday/anniversary) the restaurant would acknowledge in some special way. Only this detail was missed so hopefully the next occasion we don’t have to remind them! This will not stop us from coming back, it’s a fantastic restaurant.
