This was our second time at Ola. Unfortunately we only get to Miami once per year. The service and food were exceptional. The rock shrimp and hamachi ceviche wee extraordinary. So was everything else. Looking forward to our next visit.

Omg! This place is so amazing. What a delight to find a different menu for a change. Everything is absolutely delicious, the service is done by superb experienced & friendly waiters. No fault, a real pleasure.
The meatballs with foie gras & sherry sauce, the filet mignon with the crab sauce and chimichuri are pure heaven.
Not a traditional trendy Miami style venue, just a great great place to go, and to go back everytime we get a chance.

Took my wife for her birthday. We enjoy good food but this was more than just good food, it was a culinary experience. The corn empanadas and ola meatballs appetizers were exquisite. For dinner we ordered the Pollo Criollo and the Pionono... melt in your mouth delicious. We can't wait to go back. We recommend this restaurant to everyone who appreciates not just good food but a fine dining experience.

We enjoyed our evening at OLA at Sanctuary. The mixto ceviche and the Yuca bread were delicious. The drinks were tasty and our main courses were fantastic. The dessert which included a corn cake and avocado ice cream worked so well together. We loved it and our waiter was attentive and friendly. I would go again when in the Miami/South Beach area. It was a nice, memorable touch to our anniversary weekend away.

We had a great time at OLA. The hotel is very cozy and the service, food and drinks were fantastic. The staff at OLA was very friendly and very accommodating. They made us feel very comfortable and welcome. We enjoyed ourselves and the next time we are in Miami Beach we are having a wonderful dinner at OLA.

Food is delicious, but the ambience is a little pretentious. The server rolled his eyes when I asked for a glass of wine at dinner saying, "Are you sure you don't want a cocktail first?" They try to up sell everything in a really obvious way, and when you are paying that much for a meal, you just shouldn't have to deal with that. I won't be back-there are too many other nice restaurants in South Beach.

The place is nice, the service is outstanding, but it's way overpriced for the quality. It's more of a tourist place, I suppose. The reviews are awesome, but probably from people who come to Miami in search of latin food and end up overpaying for fancy, very well presented, but of really bad quality food.

The food is superb. I had the corvina ceviche and the fish special. Both were excellent. Our waitress was knowledgeable about the menu explaining each of the dishes and offering helpful suggestions. She was very attentive and always present when needed but not hovering. We would highly recommend the restaurant

This was our second visit to Ola, and the experience was just as outstanding as our first dinner there a year ago. Top marks for atmosphere, low key but spot-on-attentive service, and delicious, fresh and inventive food. I will save this restaurant as best-for-last any time I visit South Beach!

Wonderful food and service -- I was "so so" on civics until Ola, but I absolutely love theirs. Same for brussel sprouts. I hated them until OLA. Their preparations are creative with somewhat of a Latin American flair, but still very appealing to my North American tastes. And the location while on a quiet street is handy to the MB convention center and South Beach.

The service was excellent. Jackson our server went above and beyond to make our dining experience extra special. The food was cooked to our perfection. The wine and drinks were very good. I would highly recommend OLA at Sanctuary for any and every occasion !!

My husband and I had a wonderful meal at Ola. The ambiance was lovely. We were outside and it was quiet. Our waiter attended to us well, was very experienced and knew so much about each dish on the menu. I had a watermelon mojito that was so light and filled with small chunks of watermelon and fresh mint. Delicious! We ordered Mixto Ceviche that was spectacularly delicious along with beautifully done cornbread. My husband had Roast Cuban Pork that was fall off the bone luscious and I had the Pescado A Lo Macho which was so tender with a mouthwatering sauce as well as shellfish. I wish I wasn't so full so that I could try the desserts. This is the second time I've been to Ola and I will continue to recommend it as a spectacular gourmet Cuban restaurant with a very sophisticated Miami Beach ambiance.
Lovely restaurant with great food choice ...
Lovely restaurant with great food choices. Ceviche selection was yummy, dinner roll was a favorite (asked for another serving of that), and the dinner choices of fish (Pescado A Lo Macho) and pork (Puerco Asado - braised Pork) were super tasty. Small place, but very attentive staff! Higher priced but worth the experience. Would recommend and frequent again.
Probably one of our best dining experien ...
Probably one of our best dining experiences ever! Both the service and food were OUTSTANDING. While it might seem odd to rate the "value" as outstanding, it should be noted, while this restaurant is far from cheap, you truly understand what you are paying for and the portions are very generous.
My partner and I shared the Fire and Ice Ceviche based on our server's recommendation. Neither of us have had ceviche before and truly loved this dish. Second courses included the king crab salad, which was beautifully presented and delicious, and the short rib empanadas (terrific!). The rack of lamb entrée was perfectly cooked and immensely flavorful. The chocolate cigar dessert was another inventive and playfully presented dish and the deconstructed key lime pie was everything you'd want in this dish (although I did find myself wanting more "crust"). And the entire server staff was perfectly attentive!
This restaurant is a must for any foodie or even a causal diner. We cannot wait to visit the Miami Beach area again...a second visit to Ola will be on the top of our to do list.

Fairly small restaurant on a side street just north of Lincoln Road in South Beach. Excellent wine list with a good variety of Chile, Argentina and Spanish wines along with the standard U.S. assortment. Sommelier suggested an excellent Rioja. I had the beef filet and my wife had the cuban pork. Both were excellent; but the pork was out of this world. It was the best roast pork I have ever eaten. We will go back to this restaurant just to have the pork.
Nothing else to say than a great dinner ...
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.
