Oola is a stylish restaurant in San Francisco’s South of market area serving American food. It stays open late, so it is popular with the late crowd.
Decor, Vibe – Dimly lit, exposed brick, high tech stylish lounge decor with loud music. Soma hipsters, couples, and people in their 20’s and 30’s were dining.
Seared Ahi ($13) had 4 pieces of seared tuna with radishes and fingerling potato chips. Decent quality and quantity.
All natural Baby Back Ribs Entree ($26) had 6 pieces of good cilantro, ginger and soy glazed ribs with a scoop of cole slaw. Lots of meat on the bone and decent BBQ Sauce.
Root Beer Float ($7) had root beer schnapps, vanilla ice cream, whipped cream and was very good. Super creamy. Even came with more root beer.
Vanilla Blood orange Panna Cotta ($8) had layered panna cotta, citurs pate de fruit, and blood orange sorbet. The sorbet was real tart. Very smooth panna cotta.
Roast Beets and watermelon Salad ($12) with watercress, pistachios, goat cheese and a thyme vinaigrette was expensive for what we got, but it tasted decent at least. Good quantity of beets.
Scallop Entree ($26) was fair at best. Quality was average and their cooking style was not great. Artichoke vinegar was weird.
Filet Mignon ($28) was average. Had golden enoki mushrooms, mash potatoes. It was of good size and cooked to the correct wellness.
Goat cheese Mac and Cheese ($7) was an average side order. Nothing special to it.
Sauteed Swiss Chard with bacon ($6) was an average vegetable dish. We needed to have some healthy food and this was it.
Cobia ($23) this fish looked good but was botched. We should have sent it back.
Oola was an expensive experience in small plates. Food was fair, this is a place to go for cocktails and appetizers after partying. Wines by the glass cost about $10, with specialty cocktails going for $8. If you want to try this restaurant, consider the cheaper happy hour (Mon-Fri 5-7pm) specials or weekly 6-8pm special menus.
