Absolutely great tasting food. Miami has tons of low key cuban restaurants, so Lario's has to ensure they go over and above in this department! Would definitely recommend.

Authentic Cuban cuisine - great people watching on Miami's Ocean Drive. Casual, lively, and relaxing. We would go back. Not expensive, not fancy, but tasty and great location.

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner experience! The food was delicious and out server was helpful and attentive! He made excellent recommendations from appetizers all the way to the flan!

The only complaint was that there was a bunch of microphone stands near where we were sitting that should have been moved or put away in a better location.

Great experience. Food was excellent with a good selection of genuine Cuban food.
The sights on Ocean Drive make for an interesting meal.
But the thing that stands out most in my mind was the phenomenal service from our waiter.
I think his name was Maynor and he was outstanding. With his extensive knowledge of the menu he helped us find something we would both like and even though he seemed to have a lot of tables he was very attentive and did not rush us.
Did I mention that the Mojitos are to die for !!
Going back to Miami in November and will eat here again

I am never disappointed when I go to Lario's. The food it delicious. It is Cuban with a flare. On cooler days it is great to sit outside and people watch. It is across from the beach. Wait staff are friendly and accommodating. I never feel rushed.

We took a client and his wife to dinner there during a conference nearby. The service was quick and friendly, the decor attractive, and the food good but overpriced. What almost ruined the evening was the very loud and large party of young guys at the next table, to the point that we asked to move outdoors for dessert. The bacon-wrapped sweet plantain appetizer was delicious. The chicken vaca frita and lechón asado were good. Mojitos are House specialty and very good. Mango arroz con leche was enjoyed by our clients. The noise level might keep us from returning.

We reserve a table from Germany for happy hour , because on the website was a special happy hour menue with drinks and food -when we arrived nobody knew about existing a happy hour menue and they only offered us drinks. When we them the card in Internet they were surprised!!!! Also the restrooms were dirty! In such a location they habe to know what they write in the own website!!!! Sorry we will never come back and don't recommend this place at all, although it belongs to Gloria Estefan

Great food and service as usual. Never disappoints. Best mojito and Cuban coffee I have ever tasted. I recommend the Guava
Mojito and the Cappuccino along with the chocolate cigar to dip it in the coffee...simply delicious!

For a place that has the opportunity to show off Cuban food this was not it. Although the decor was lovely, that was it. Service sucked, sweet waiter was way too busy making drinks, taking orders, never had a real chance to check on customers. The staff delivering meals actually told us the restaurant doesnt have hot sauce? My dish grilled fish, tasteless, dry... My hubbys pork worse than dry. Not for Foodies, give me cheap cuban food in the hood any day over this... For those that dont know better ok suckers

Lario's has delicious food and a fun, energetic (noisy) atmosphere. It was difficult to talk with our group, but we had a great time celebrating a birthday nonetheless. The servers were friendly and helpful, but seemed short-staffed so it took awhile to get our food and check once the restaurant started filling up.
