Time after time Ortanique has impressed me. The service and the food is really the most consistent and most delicious compared to any restaurant in Miami or anywhere! Our waiter was happy and patient and left my friend and me alone to talk and enjoy our meal. When the food was delivered, the food runner explained just how fresh my salmon was and the process by which it was prepared. I cannot wait to go back!

Food was excellent and so was the service. Ate outside so it was quiet. Hostess made a point of coming out and introducing herself. Emily, our server, was perfect. Everything was delicious. My husband said the sticky toffee pudding was as good as the place in England where it originated.

Food and cockatils were delicious. Service was very slow. They were busy as it was Friday night, but even as the resturant began to empty it was hard to get a servers attention. Dinner for 4 took 3 hours for no reason. Price point is a little high, but the portion size was large as well.

It was recommended by some friends. Quite a distance for us to get to but went for my birthday and also it was Miami Spice. Lovely ambience with great service. The food was delicious and they even decorated the dessert plate for my birthday. Will definitely make the trip again.

This is truly a neighborhood gem, one of our all time favorites. We took advantage of the Miami Spice Menu (can't beat it!). The Flatiron Stake and the Snapper were wonderful, so was the wine we tried; Fruit Savage, a red blend from France. Jojo our server is excellent. Highly recommend, with or without Miami Spice

My friend and I had a Miami Spice lunch and was disappointed with the food from the appetizers, entree and desserts. Her mini ribs was tender but the ribs seems coated in pork and bean sauce. Both of our flat iron steaks were tasteless and somewhat tough. The mix rice and vegetables was not memorable. We ordered the steaks medium. Both desserts were nice but the Mango Tres Leches had tiny square mango pieces which seem odd to me. Her cupcakes were good. My friend and boss had many lunches at the Ortanique with amazing results. This is one of his favorite restaurants in Coral Gables. Even my friend was disappointed with the Miami Spice lunch.

We went with intention of both ordering the Miami Spice menu. My boyfriend ordered the Miami spice menu, but I did't like any of the desserts offered, and wasn't crazy about the entree offerings. I felt that menu was limited. I did order a Ceasar salad and the salmon entree and both were excellent.

I had two issues. First when I made the reservation I had asked for a quiet table, since we were on a date - just the two of us and we wanted a quiet romantic evening. We did get a small table for two - sandwiched in between two very large noisy parties of 10 people each table.... so much for a quiet date night. My bigger issue was our server. She was just awful and acted like she was overwhelmed. There was confusion and misunderstanding with our wine order and the check. She lost the credit card (she dropped it on the floor coming back from the register) and in a nasty way insisted she didn't have it and we must have misplaced it.

Though the food was good, the atmosphere and service were really disappointing. Coral Gables has lots of choices, no need to pay high prices for a sub-par experience.

Consistently good all-around. Crab cake appetizer wonderful. Not much batter and actually light and not short changed at all on conch. Best thing Ortanique cares for us locals. Not at all a trendy place. After all locals are the ones that sustain the good restaurants. Owner/chef also very civic minded which is great.

The waiter was pushing us out at every step. I was there after work with my husband. No water refill even though requested three times. Had to ask for bread twice. He tried to take the bread when bringing the soup. We said don’t please we want more bread and are not rest for it to go. He was bringing the meal when we still had soup. Asking if done when I had fork in my hand still eating fish. Brought dessert before picking up the dinner plates as we were still eating. He left the bill when we took first bite of dessert. I’ve never felt so rushed. For a sit down restaurant we should be able to take our time. I left thirsty and went home to get water. It was unpleasant for what should be quality dining. The food was very good and that was enjoyable. Bathroom was clean. It was a bit noisy from other customers but the restaurant can’t control that. The lasting impression was challenging service.

This use to be one of my favorite restaurants. Had not visited in the past couple of years and Ithe Miami Spice Menu on website lured me in. I was disappointed. Miami Spice Menu for a Sunday night was very poor, did not include anything special. Opted for regular menu items which were good, but not outstanding for this caliber of restaurant. Saved room for dessert, only to pay $10 for a very small piece of Tres Leches which was tasty, but size was only for a spoonful! Will not return anytime soon.
