LOBA Ratings and Reviews
Loba was amazing. Me and a few friends came for a quick bite and couldn’t have been happier. The food makes you feel like you are eating at someone’s grandmothers home, but it is perfectly cooked, flavored, and the ingredients are of the highest quality. Can’t wait to go back!!
Went for brunch. Food was great but came out very slowly. None of the food came out at the same time which wouldn't have mattered if it was a tapa style brunch, however it wasn't. My food came out first and my 3 hungry children were staring at my plate. I didn't have the heart to eat my food confront of my children so my food wound up getting cold by the time their plates came out. That was very unfortunate because even cold, my food was amazing, I just wished I could have eaten it hot.
The most disturbing was my server. I was brought the food for another table who also ordered biscuits and my children touched and ate off of plate. I questioned the server when she came back with an item I did not order, and she told me that she got the tables mixed up. She then proceeded to remove the biscuit from my table and gave it to the table behind me!! I was speechless!
Again, the food was amazing, but the service is really lacking.
The food and the ambiance was great but the service and our waiter was terrible. We had to wait for an hour for appetizers and our waitress seemed overwhelmed but there were only 4 tables dining. Luckily, it wasn't my 1st time there so I know the service can and has been better. Hoping it was just a bad night.
Loba is a small, casual, warm, charming spot, with very friendly service and an interesting menu. The food varied; a plate of mixed sausage, churrasco, egg, rice and beans was delicious, but the arepas were hard and dry. The mixed salad that came with the fried snapper was superb - fresh and tart - but the snapper was dry. I would come back and just not order the things I did not like.
LOBA is excellent! It was a random choice for me as I was looking for a place to have dinner and conversations with a friend. But what a great choice it was. Our server made excellent recommendations. We had the patacon and trio of ceviche. Both were delicious choices. We also had their banana nut bread for dessert. I wasn't as pleased with the dessert as I thought I'd be, but it was good. I'll definitely be coming back here.
Incredibly slow service during a Saturday afternoon with only 3 tables. Meals came out at different times and my order wasn't fully plated upon arrival to the table so they had to bring a side of eggs for my eggs Benedict, hot sauces never came, drink service was relatively slow as well and the whole process took an hour and half to eat and get our bill. No apologies were made on behalf of servers nor any compensation to the check; if this is Loba's standard of service, this restaurant won't last long even though their food is good. As a concierge, I'm highly unlikely to recommend this restaurant.
It took a very long time before we were greeted. Then once we were greeted we were informed that there were no tables available despite the fact that we had a reservation. After waiting a while we just decided to leave and had dinner at Winewood instead. Winewood was good. I highly recommend Winewood.
Not first visit to Loba. Made s reservation. When arrived all tables except bar-height community table taken up by birthday party of twenty-plus people. Loud, noisy, restless, etc. waitress said they had paid and were leaving. We sat down to wait a few minutes to see. Not only were they not leaving, but waitress brought table two more drinks. There are other options in that neighborhood, so we left.
If a restaurant is going to be taken over almost completely, they should not take additional reservations for the same time period. Will come back again but make sure there is no noisy party. Rated everything poor above because ratings are "required"-but we ate nothing.
You guys have to stop by this place!!!
Charming and modern. At first it appears unassuming but when you get inside there is beautiful decor!!!
I easily made my reservation online (for a table of 8) and they had the table waiting for us when we arrived!! No hassle and no wait!!
They don't have their own parking lot but we were able to park in the residential area behind LOBA (Ms. Cheezious is also next door!! Which should also be on you must-have list for Miami)
Our waitress was nice friendly!! There was fast service. I actually used this restaurant to do my bridesmaids proposal and everything was beautiful! The decor the lighting and don't get me started on the food.
Almost everyone has the "Ring of Fire" aka chicken and waffles. We also had their mimosas!! I had the peach passion and it was delicious!!
I will definitely be back!!
First visit- server extremely pleasant and helpful. Limited menu and beverage list though some good beers. Food good, well prepared and served. Place informal- good place for a fine meal, not complicated, well prepared and served. It is not gourmet, but then that is not what they try to be. Check prices for wine- by all means go but keep expectations realistic.
Will definitely return.
LOBA is a wonderful restaurant, just my kind of place.
If you appreciate a simple yet well appointed, homely and authentic restaurant, you will like LOBA.
If you are looking to recover from highly produced dishes and still want the same level of care both in food and service, LOBA is for you.
At LOBA you will feel as comfortable with the knowledgeable staff as you can be with your neighbors the next table over, asking about what they are eating … it seems to me LOBA attracts this kind of crowd.
Absolutely loved dining at LOBA this past weekend! The food was spectacular and the cozy warm ambiance made date night with my husband an absolute pleasure. Highly recommend Lentil Croquetas, Vincent Van Goat, Ceviche Sampler, Bandeja Paisa. The sangria is yummy as well. Thanks again to the team at LOBA!
The restaurant looks good;great look to it. The A/C must be an underperformer, because it was warm and the restaurant had put out floor fans -- not loud, but they definitely recognize the problem.
The food was "ok". The burger was good, not great. A little disappointed when i asked to sub brussel sprouts for fries and agreed to an "upcharge" and when i got the bill, learned the "upcharge" was full price of $10, so that the burger and one side was $28. The non-fried, fried chicken was ok. It just seemed that everything was missing one little item -- citrus to balance the sweetness of a cheese appetizer, a sauce for a side, something to jazz up the mac and cheese. It was just "ok". I did not feel it was good value: we had 2 beers, one app, a burger and fried chicken, (and the brussel sprouts) and it was over $100 with the tip and tax.
it was like it had an off night. only 2 tables were occupied on a friday at 8:30. I had been there before, about a year ago and it was hopping and i remember a good experience. not sure what happened here.
I'd read that they offered complimentary bread from Zak the Baker. When service was over, I asked why I didn't receive any and the server informed me that the diner has to ask for it. I've heard of that policy for water but never for bread. I got some to go free of charge. I don't recall ever seeing anything on the menu about having to ask for the bread nor did my server tell me until after the fact.
