Innovating for a CURIOUS Palate

We are a group of close friends that came together through our love of food, beverage & community. With years of experience as restaurateurs, we decided to embark on a journey to create a local independent EuroAmerican restaurant, located in the dynamic Armature Works in North Tampa Heights.

Oak & Ola is a comfortable place with timeless design. A place to gather where food and libations are thoughtfully sourced, hand crafted, and changed seasonally. Join us as we share and explore flavors and experiences, at the table which makes us all one.
