I met a friend for lunch at Orale for the first time today. It's not big. It's not fancy. It does have a fun atmosphere. The food seemed to be fairly authentic Mexican. We got the complimentary tortilla chips plus mango salsa and pico di...More

This place has friendly service and a decent Margarita. No complaints at all, but I didn't find the food to be anything out of the ordinary. I might stop again if in the area, but wouldn't go out of my way.

Don't expect Taco Bell options & flavors here. Orale has its own take on many standards, like the Deep-Fried Avocado Tacos I ordered. Our group of 6 appreciated the array of salsas served with chips to start things off, and everyone was happy with their...More

Enjoyed their pleasant and attentive servers, blood orange margaritas, several different fresh salsas, delicious guacamole, and every other app and small plate we ordered. Reasonably priced just north of the West Side Market--where they have a retail booth selling excellent enchiladas which strangely they do...More

We have purchased prepared food from Orale at their stand in the Cleveland West Side Market. We have been pleased with fresh ingredients, unique flavors, and excellent quality. The restaurant, however, was a big disappointment. The chips were stale. The meals lacked flavor. Staff was...More

The mango salsa was enough for me to love them - however, to be far - the chili relleno was rather bland - all it needed was a bit more sauce and a lot more cheese as it had none! $5 a pop (not bad)....More

We are Orale! Contemporary Mexican Cuisine. For seventeen years Chef and owner Roberto Rodriguez has been delighting shoppers with his freshly prepared Mexican specialties at the Historic West Side Market in Cleveland, Ohio and, now, Orale! Contemporary Mexican Kitchen on W. 25th in Ohio City! Our unique selection of twenty-two varieties of salsas has gained local recognition over the years having been nominated several times Best Salsa in Cleveland. The team at Orale are always striving to appeal to all those searching for Mexican style cuisine with a flare. Our salsas range from the more traditional Salsa Verde and Pico de Gallo to more unique salsas like Pineapple, coconut and mint and Mango habanero salsa. The food items that we offer are no exception to this rule either. We offer a plethora vegan and vegetarian items and, of course, many items for meat lovers as well. Any way you slice it, we have a selection at both locations that will likely become a "house" favorite. Also, why not try Orale Catering Service? Whether you are planning a grand scale celebration or a casual get together with family and/or friend, the team at Orale will create a custom menu that will fit any budget. Our stand has been featured on the Food Network, Americas Best: Top Ten Destinations (West Side Market) and on local television broadcasts. Clevelands Scene Magazine and Plain Dealer have written several articles showcasing our food at the West Side Market and at the Orale Contemporary Mexican Kitchen.
