We go to South Beach several times a year and alway make it a point to go to Ola even if we only have time for a drink at the bar. The empanadas, duck salad and caipirinhas are our favorites.

Nothing else to say than a great dinner - particularly the Ceviche, but everything else we ordered was excellent - and in a relatively quiet part of Miami Beach. The staff could not have treated us better and we all left well fed and happy.

Ola is always a delight! Food is fantastic! I travel from Palm Beach several times a month to enjoy the incredible dishes. The Hamachi Nikkei, corn empanada, pionono, their secret bread recipe and the braised pork are out of this world delicious. Always get the Watermelon Mojita.

Great Food and Experience
Awesome meal! My wife and I did the chef's tasting menu. Literally provides you everything available on the tasting menu! 4 ceviches, 4 appetizers and 4 main courses. Liked everyone of them. Great wine offerings by the glass. Great service. Great atmosphere. Liked it 5 years ago, loved it 5 years later. Highly recommended.

Great Food, Great Sevice, Great Evening
Wife and I went here to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary and could not have been a better experience. Our waiter was very knowledgable about menu and all his recommendations were fantastic. Food was fresh, flavorful and unique. We would recommend to anyone in Miami area. A unique restaurant that you would not find anywhere outside of Miami.

Very good restaurant. Highly recommend the lobster empanada and the Cuban pork loin. Service was great, and the ambience on the terrace is very romantic. I am a lucky guy: I travel a lot and eat very well. With that said, OLA was one of the best meals of my life. Truly world class restaurant.
Food was excellent, especially the snapper ceviche and Maui special. Service was very attentive and the ambience wonderful. My only caution is to make sure you note that an 18% gratuity is included in your check, no matter the size of the party. We were only there as a couple. Not realizing this I ended up adding another 22% to the total that included the tip and tax This amounted to a $25 tip for a $57 bill. My stupidity or the establishment's deceit. You decide.

Go here, eat here, and be happy here. The food and service is exceptional. I would eat here every night if I could. We were there to celebrate a birthday, and they helped make it even more special.
Met friends from NY and we are from Philly. We are foodies from two different cities and both raved about how good everything was. We actually tried to go back the next night but the restaurant was closed. Will definitely put this on our must dine list and recommend to anyone going to Miami. Don't miss it.
I loved the food, specially the lobster ceviche, which was the best ceviche I've ever tried, and the desert (we had a wonderful chocolate cake with gelato). I also liked the wine selection (we had a great German Riesling) and the service.

We often go to Ola, and enjoy it most for the variety of foods with a Latin American styling, but still appearing to a continental palate.
We ate at Ola last Friday. Ola is one of the most consistent restaurants in Miami Beach. The food, wince and service were excellent. It's warm and welcoming to returning and first time diners. My one small request if for some new menu items.
One of the best meals I have had
We chose this restaurant partially because of previous reviews, and we were not disappointed. As a starter we shared a Fire and Ice ceviche, which was amazing - jalapenos balanced by a delicious Asian pear granita - beautifully fresh fish and amazing flavours... some reviewers have commented that the ceviche was small, but we found it was plenty to share. As a main course my husband had the Cuban Roast Pork, which was also delicious but very spicy, I had the lamb which was expensive but a very large portion of lamb, served with a truffle souffle and beetroot and goat's cheese - I was not sure the flavours would work well together but they definitely did! We split the chocolate cigar for dessert - fun presentation but also very yummy, particularly the coffee ice cream... prices are high but the quality is very good. The only downside for us was a very loud table who were eating at the same time as us - not the restaurant's fault, and they did apologise for it, but a bit of a shame as we could hardly hear each other speak! We will definitely return next time we are in Miami.

The service was impeccable. There were literally multiple servers helping to make sure we had a good experience, from refilling glasses, to folding napkins, to checking in to make sure everything was good - but not overly intrusive which was great. The FOOD was amazing! Absolutely beautifully prepared, each plate was a work of art. It was delicious, exceeded my expectations. We had the snapper ceviche, sugar cane tuna, lobster empanada, deconstructed key lime pie, and corn cake with avocado ice cream. Everything was delicious. I highly recommend and would go again!

waiter was an order taker only. good thing we read reviews before coming
Unique and Fabulous
We loved the unusual choices on the menu. Our meals were fabulous. Our server achieved that elusive balance between attentive and annoying. He was perfect. My only criticism is that I hate the two-top tables lined up along a wall bench. Sitting 14" from the diners at the next table means you are basically together with strangers. We heard every word of their conversations, and they heard ours.

I wanted to take my husband somewhere special for his 50th birthday and I was not disappointed! From the warm welcome, to the extremely knowledgable staff and the most amazing food!!! An evening I won't forget in a hurry. Thanks to everyone at Ola for a fantastic dining experience.

Very nice small restaurant. The food was excellent and the atmosphere is very nice. It is quieter than the rest of the other places while being very close to the heart of south beach. I highly recommend it for a nice romantic dinner with good food and very kind service.

We came in for a late reservation so the restaurant was pretty empty. We ordered the lobster empanada and hamachi appetizer. The lobster empanada had wonderful huge chunks of lobster but other than that it was just ok flavor wise. The hamachi was the star so delicious, fresh and full of flavor. Too bad it was teeny tiny! We inhaled it. For the main course we ordered the salmon which was marinated in brown sugar for 8 hours. It was so good. I would come back just for the salmon!

Went here for the last day on our holiday, was absolutely amazing. Great food, better service.
Booked from England
This is our favorite SoBe restaurant. We made bookings before we traveled to be certain of a table. The ceviches are fantastic and the balance of the dishes means we can usually find room for the oh -so-delicious deconstructed key lime pie. The service is attentive, knowledgeable but still friendly.
As good as it's web site
The meal and experience matched nicely with the description on the restaurant's web site – very nice since this is how we selected it. The food was excellent, as was the service and ambience. Thumbs up!
