Menu Pictures

Oola San Francisco Menu 1

Picks:

Oola San Francisco Seared Ahi

Seared Ahi ($13) had 4 pieces of seared tuna with radishes and fingerling potato chips. Decent quality and quantity.

Oola San Francisco Baby Back Ribs

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.

Oola San Francisco Root Beer Float

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.

Oola San Francisco Panna Cotta

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.

OK:

Oola San Francisco Beet Salad

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.

Oola San Francisco Scallops

Scallop Entree ($26) was fair at best. Quality was average and their cooking style was not great. Artichoke vinegar was weird.

Oola San Francisco Filet Mignon

Filet Mignon ($28) was average. Had golden enoki mushrooms, mash potatoes. It was of good size and cooked to the correct wellness.

Oola San Francisco Mac n cheese

Goat cheese Mac and Cheese ($7) was an average side order. Nothing special to it.

Oola San Francisco Chard

Sauteed Swiss Chard with bacon ($6) was an average vegetable dish. We needed to have some healthy food and this was it.

Pans:

Oola San Francisco Cobia

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.
