Great Food, Poor Service
Food is amazing, as is the ambiance. However, we had poor service. We ate around 10pm and our waiter was an elderly gentleman who seemed eager to leave. He rushed our ordering process and meal. The table next to us arrived at 10:40pm and he blatantly told them they couldn't order something because the kitchen was about to close. I was under the impression that as long as you arrive before the restaurant closes its doors, you can order anything off the menu.

Great spot for people watching.
Great spot for people watching. Food was good but could have been a little more generous with the rice and beans. My grouper was grilled perfect, the whole fried snapper was good as well as the fried plantains. Good time in South Beach

Made a reservation as per the recommendation of two friends. We were very satisfied that we went. The food was very good and the price was very reasonable, especially for South Beach. We would definitely go back again the next time we are in town.

We sat inside, less hassle.
We sat inside, less hassle. Larry the waiter was great. The food was excellent, must try their Ceviche. They have an ultimate Mojito which was the best out of six other locations we tried in Miami.

Lario's hit a home run! Our experience was perfect from beginning to end. We started at the bar with a great bartender and great drinks. We were seated where we requested and had a wonderful dinner. This being our first time for Cuban food we relied on our waiter for suggestions and be was spot on. The location on Ocean was perfect for people watching! We had a great time and recommend Lario's with enthusiasm!

Good Cuban food, but not service
Perfect for a fun Miami night and authentic Cuban food. Service can be slow and it can be loud - but I guess that's part of the authentic Cuban experience?

Went with out of town guests who wanted Cuban Cuisine and had not been to South Beach. Larios was my first choice and it was a huge hit. Food was good; service was fast but it can get a little noisy at times. I highly recommend it overall.

Love this place!
We love Larios on the Beach, however were not aware that they had moved into the lobby of the Cardozo Hotel on Mother's Day (temporarily while their restaurant at 820 Ocean Drive is being renovated). The ambiance was not as great as the original restaurant, however they transferred their staff over so the chefs were still the same. Food was delicious as usual!! I had the Ropa Viejo, wonderful, along with delicious chicken soup. Fried plantains great & tasted like a dessert. The black bean rice is excellent. Good prices and great staff! It was my husband's birthday and they gave him a wonderful piece of cake with a sparkler in it and sang "Happy Birthday" to him. Quite a wonderful experience. The manager visited our table and welcomed us.

The place was nice the good/service
The place was nice the good/service was good, but unfortunately, it is hidden and overwhelmed by the craziness of the Cardozo Hotel Bar and Grill outside of it. I didn't like having to walk through that to get to Lario's.

Great dinner at Lario's
Went to Dinner w/ family and friends at Lario's while we were on vacation in South Beach, Miami Beach, Florida. The hostess had two tables waiting for us to choose from. We chose one that was located on 13th Street instead of the busy Ocean Drive side. We requested Mojito's and carnitas de puerco to start. The drinks were well made and had a piece of sugarcane as the stirrer. The carnitas came soon after and were meaty and not very fatty. Our meals of palomilla steak, chicken noodle soup, roast chicken were out in a very reasonable amount of time. Everything was well made and very flavorful. Our server, Felix, was very attentive and quick to return with anything we needed. While it was a bit pricey, it was worth it.

Vacation Visitors "To Do"
This was recommended to me by a local and also by a frequent traveler. We loved the food and atmosphere. We would have preferred to be seated on the street, as this is located at South Beach. At first they sat us out back, which was terrible, then we moved inside and the ambiance was much better. Try to make your reservations a couple of days in advance and request Street Seating. Tres Leches was amazing!

Hits the spot
I enjoy coming to this restaurant when I want Cuban food

Martini's are great!
We tried Cuban this time. I ordered a combination appetizer for dinner and my husband ordered a minced beef with fried eggs. The appetizer has mainly fried food but the fried pork was delicious! The minced beef reminded me of a dish that I grew up eating in my country (Taiwan) which was very nostalgic for me. I had the lychee-martini and my husband had the the Glorious Cosmo and they were both very good! I ordered the Cuban flan which is another dessert that I grew up with. However, don't under-estimate the small amount! The flan was very dense and rich but very good. I'm more used to the lighter version of Chinese flan. Waiter, took awhile to come to us & more attentive to larger group which we were not too happy about.

Great food and service.
Our only issue is that we were seated in the back courtyard, rather than at a table near the street, despite the fact that we had reservations and let them know in advance that we were celebrating our anniversary.

This restaurant did not disappoint. The mojitos are very good and strong. The food was excellent. For appetizers we had the stuffed plantains and the portions were very generous. For the main course we had the churrasco which we were very pleased with. The meat was well cooked but it was still juicy and soft. The flan and the three milks desserts were excellent. This is a place I would recommend 100%.

The restaurant has recently relocated to the Cardoza Hotel and they have done a good job with the interior decorating. If you love good Cuban food then this is the place to go. All your favorites are here including some specials. We came during "Miami Spice"(Aug thru Sept) and had some opportunity to try a couple of new dishes they were good. By the way don't forget the "mojitos"

Excellent and authentic Cuban food. Our 4th time dinning here and each time the experience gets better. We have 2 kids and love it as much as we do.

So glad we chose this restaurant for our first night in Miami. The Mojito packed a punch and we managed to dine al fresco, a treat for us British. The food was tasty and satisfying with a great menu choice. Would definitely return and recommend.

Incredible Cuban dining experience!
Our party of three were blown away by the traditional Mojito pitchers and outstanding entrees. The food was delectable and the service was fast and friendly. Highly recommended for its menu options and location :)

Our Sobe favorite
In its temporary location at the moment, so it was quieter than usual. Highly recommend the mojitos, shredded beef and shredded chicken. (Typing in dark excuse typos)
