We enjoy coming here. Came last Friday night 1/17 again. The maitre d' Gigi is terrific. This place is consistently good all-around. The short rib appetizer was terrific. Came in a crepe. And the Cuban cod fritters were unique and outstanding. Usually when you get cod croquettes in Miami at the bakeries they tend to be too dry and just not good. However, these were very different and definitely most unique. Must try. They're not that overpowering either for those afraid.

It was date night with my wife, and decided to pay another visit to this quintessential gem in the middle of Coral Gables. The ambiance was quiet, romantic and inspiring. They had a wine tasting activity prior to dinner that proved to be very good, with more than 20 different wines with appetizers for $20. I ordered the fix price menu and it was great! She ordered the Tuna Tartare and Mahi Mahi, both wonderfully prepared and served. We had the house merlot which was a good companion to the plates ordered and it was very affordable. For dessert, we had the Mango Tres Leches. It was great! Overall, a great experience, great service, lively bar, great menu, excellent wine selections and wonderful food. Definitely will recommend.

I love this place. Food is flavorful and one of the few places in Miami that I think are worth the prices for the quality. Drinks are amazing!! Well made mixologist-style not just thrown together like a joke. I enjoy going there and always enjoy the meals and ambiance.

Had not been there in a while. Found the food and service outstanding as usual. They even ran out of Mcallan 12 (single malt) and our second drink was substituted with Mc 18.

Ortanique has been a favorite with me and my friends for many years. I have never been disappointed. Everybody, including the hostesses, bartenders, and servers are always welcoming. The food is consistently good and although I am not a vegetarian I often enjoy the nightly vegetarian entree because it is always excellent. The wine list is good with some reasonably priced options. The bar is well-stocked with a nice selection of wines by the glass. Now that the Miracle Mile improvements are complete they have an expanded seating area out front. There's convenient parking behind the restaurant in the city garage. You can enjoy a stroll on Miracle Mile after dinner.

Reception, table location, service was exceptional. Drinks were timely and just what we ordered. We have learned that does not always happen - no lime, ice when you asked no ice, etc.
Food was also wonderful. Caesar salad dressing was just right and I am a Caesar salad EXPERT!
The swordfish was excellent. My husband had the Mahi Mahi and we both cleaned our plates as did our three guests. Not a chance of anything left to take home and the portions were not "skimpy".
We went before the theatre next door and highly recommend Ortanique.
Great place to take guests, we were able to have across the table conversation without raising our voices.
We shall once again return.

Ortanique I think is the longest lasting restaurant on the Mile and no doubt will continue. I’ve been dining here since it opened and never disappoints; Fritters of the Day, Chorizo and Black Bean were exceptional. The house “hot” sauce is an added touch and a favorite. Salmon and Ahi Tuna were perfect and my date devoured the Mango Tres Leches. They also know how to prepare a nice Kettle One Martini. Only challenge, the Decaf Espresso was NOT Decaf and I was up until 4AM. Always return and a very convenient place prior to the Theater, Enjoy!

Just an incredible restaurant. I little gem in Coral Gables with a friendly staff, a wide assortment of delicious plates and a bar that handcrafts great cocktails. Its right next door to the Miracle Mile theatre, so it makes for a nice afternoon or evening to first dine at Ortanique and then take in the theater.

Start with the parking. It is very hard to find street side parking. There is a garage on the street behind the restaurant that is a flat $5. We opted for the garage a street over from the front of the restaurant. I believe it said it was museum garage parking. We were there just under 2 hours (since we were only there for dinner) and it was $3. The outside seating we originally selected was right next to the sidewalk and it was a little humid, so we opted for inside dining.

We were promptly greeted and seated. Service was good, food was very good. I had the cornish game hen and my wife had the salmon. Both done perfectly. Service was a little slow when trying to close out and settle our bill. After we were finished, our server was standing at the reception desk talking to who appeared to be the owner. Our table was very close to them, but we were not acknowledged being done. The server walked away and was summoned by another table who were trying to get their bill also. This delayed our checking out by a few minutes. Not a big deal, I just happen to be one of those people that when I'm done, I'd like my bill and be able to get on my way. Would definitely recommend!

Expensive for what we got. Food was Ok. Server was in a hurry, pushy in multiple ways and almost rude. We were outside and a sudden rain came. She was more worried about the menus than us.

I had not been to Ortanique in a number of years and went back for the 20th anniversary celebration. The food was delicious. Priscilla, our waitress, was excellent. The place seemed to have been redone. All in all, it was a delightful experience and I'm looking forward to returning soon.

I don’t know what’s happened but the quality of the food was not up to par and much less considering the high prices they charge. The shrimp ceviche was ok but probably had less than a shrimp cut up into little pieces, an insipid guacamole and a stale plantain chip accompanied this. The catch of the day was a Corvina which was fresh and well cooked but there was so much sauce on it it was hard to enjoy it. A plantain and yuca mash was ok and again accompanied by a stale plantain chip.
What was outstanding was the service by Jaqueline.

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.
