OLA at Sanctuary Ratings and Reviews

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!

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!

Food, Service, Ambiance
I've been to OLA many times. It's my go-to first date restaurant. The service is always great and the food is interesting without going over the top.

We come back here every Miami Trip to re savor the delectable Latin cuisine. Eating outside is a must! This time I had branzino with oxtail curry : amazing! We always start with a ceviche.
Fantastic find in south beach
The food and cocktails were delicious, and they had the best gluten free bread I've ever tasted. Seriously. This place is definitely worth it.
Amazing food. Best pork main course and great service. Highly recommended for people who enjoy amazing food !!!!

While the food was great, service was at the top, the price is really too high.
Try the fufu!
As soon as I started looking at Ola's menu, my eyes were drawn to a dish I didn't recognize: fufu. I asked the waitress what that was, and in her sophisticated, husky voice she told me that it's mashed plantains with bacon. It sounded intriguing, so we ordered it, and we're so glad we did! It was like sweet mashed potatoes with bacon. YUM! We also loved our fish tacos and salmon. The service was as good as the food. I highly recommend that all travelers to Miami Beach eat at Ola!
The quantity of food in the dishes is small for the prices charged. Everything is very fresh but now having been there several time the charm is wearing off and the menu needs some more choices or changes. Service has become very rushed and for that kind of expense I don't expect to have to wolf down my food.
My favorite restaurant in Miami Beach
We visit Miami Beach two to three per year and Ola is a must during our visit. The lobster empinada is exceptional. The service has always been excellent, the ceviche is great and the chocolate cigar is great. I highly recommend Ola.

Excellent waitress who gave wonderful food descriptions and recommendations! Ate outside in a shrubbery enclosed area which was lovely. The servers worked beautifully together. We shared a lobster serviche as a starter and then an order of meatballs for an appetizer. My companion had a fish dish with mussels, clams, and calamari with a delectable sauce, and I had the duck. Our dessert was a chocolate cigar combination of incredible tastes! All the food, especially all the sauces were outstanding! I would go back again to try other serviches and any other dishes in a minute!!
Was there with my family for my daughter in laws birthday, as they were visiting from NYC! Excellent food, really fine dinning. Portions were good and plating was very special. Flavors were quite pronounced. All around special dinning!

Probably one of the best meals I've ever had. The ceviche was outstanding, and the whole red snapper perfectly prepared. A must in Miami
Fabulous locale & amazing eats
The waitstaff is knowledgable and friendly-offering suggestions for first time visitors navigating the menu. The wine list and special drinks are plentiful. The most amazing cuisine. Start with pop rock shrimp. NY sirloin cooked to perfection. Pork dish was a unique blend of spices. Would highly recommend. Only downside was not so fabulous restrooms in "hotel" area.

Great food, drinks, and ambiance our waiter was friendly and knowledgable. He went out of his way to make sure we got what we wanted. We order the Filit Mignon Churasco great flavor and melted in your mouth with the crabmeat sauce . The roast pork dish wasn't what we expected but ok , short rib empanadas were like heaven in your mouth. The lobster ceviche was to the next level of ceviches I ever had. My only disappointment was the prices , we ordered a kids size chicken with rice and beans dinner and they charged us $35 for the meal really come on . I would come back again when im back in Miami , one of the best dinning experiences I had overall in Miami !

One of the best meals I have had in awhile. Truly exception in all ways!!
Very nice evening
Girls weekend in Miami. We are in our mid-to-late 30s and definitely prefer a nice dinner and wine to the typical Miami scene. This place was perfect. The ambiance was very nice and other than some spring break crowds passing by to get to Collins, very quiet. The ceviche was amazing--very light and fresh, but also very complex in flavor. Wine list was decent, nothing special and our waiter applied standard descriptions for varietals, which misled us on a few glasses. Otherwise, a really nice evening and a special culinary experience.
Quiet and nice fine dining
A little romantic Place in a small hotel. Very Close to the party area of South Miami Beach, but suprisingly calm. We have duck and the dessert "cigar" and drank a very good Pinot noir from Santa Barbara (Sta Rita Valley). The food was delicious! A mix between Latino and French kitchen.
Great food! Ceviche for the win!
