OLA at Sanctuary Ratings and Reviews
Great food , the tasting menu was fantastic, the restaurant is in a quiet location off of the main streets,but close to the hotels on Collins street. Service was friendly and well paced. From the cervice he to the deconstructed key lime pie each dish was a taste sensation, we will definitely be going back.
we are local, so have eaten here before. The food is always
delish, but what made the evening more special was our server, Rachel. She had a great manner, was very helpful in giving suggestions and attentive thru the entire meal. She made it an extraordinary outing.
After having read stellar reviews for this restaurant, I took my boyfriend to OLA for his Birthday, but we were sadly disappointed by the quality of the food. The restaurant itself was very nice, ambiance great and service good. But the food was subpar at best. We discovered those many high reviews were from way back in 2007-2008, according to plaques on the wall. Somehow the mystique of this place had managed to linger on but it's clearly not due to the cuisine. My boyfriend had the fish special that was served over a bed of what was supposed to be roasted veggies, but ended up being a pile of inedible raw onions. My dish, the traditional Cuban Pork (which should have been perfection), was dry, so so in terms of taste and served over a bed of heavy, smashed tostones w/ little flavor. Overall, a disappointment. I wouldn't go back.
Our server, Jackson, was fantastic. He gave great recommendations on the menu without being pushy. Everyone working there was top notch. The food was incredible---the best we had on our trip. We especially recommend the Fire and Ice ceviche and the grouper dish. It isn't cheap, but it is reasonable for what you are getting.
We went out for a bite to eat in the evening. The host greeted us warmly and we were offered a choice of tables which was a good touch. The waitress was very knowledgeable and helpful. We ordered a number of appetizers including ceviche as well as hot plates such as shrimps, octopus, empanadas and meatballs. Everything tasted great and there was no pressure to order main dishes. Watch how out for the tips as 18% is already added but there is an empty spot on the bill anyway.
High quality restaurant in a converted hotel, in a side street just off Collins in Miami Beach - great area. Limited menu, very high prices, but some exceptional dishes , with a seafood and a Latin America accent. We ate ceviche, octopus salad, grouper and snapper all excellent choices. Service was very efficient (Enel the waitress, I think I got the name right?). Restaurant was full and very busy - so the noise level and the constant to-ing and fro-ing of wait staff and guests was a little off putting. Best to opt for a table at the back or outside away from the main foot traffic.
