The food was pretty good but definitely not great. The portion of the Mahi filet was a small square. This was the smallest portion in any restaurant I’ve ordered a Mahi Mahi dinner. I replaced the polenta with wasabi mashed potatoes. The portion of the mashed potatoes was also very small. About 4 tablespoons worth. Our server was pretty good and very nice but not attentive enough to realize my glass of beer was empty for 5 mins. When I did get her attention and ordered another one, she forgot to bring it. 10–15 mins later, I had to ask the girl who bought the food to look into it. Then the food runner brought it within 1 min. Overall, I’m disappointed with the portions as compared to a total bill of $480 for my party of 4. We did also have a bottle of wine that was $94 and a few other drinks so that amount wasn’t only food cost. It definitely is quality food and a nice ambiance but not anything so great to warrant very small portions for the price.
Ortanique is one of my favorite restaurants. It offers a unique menu of a delightful mix of flavors that transports your taste buds to the caribbean! Love the coziness of the place and they are pet friendly with outside seating!
This has always been a Great neighborhood restaurant , popular ,constantly good, it was my Birthday and I had looked forward to having the Double Pork Chop . Long story short,after a reasonable amount of time our food came , I was given pork tenderloin it took about 5 min to get our servers attention to send it back. My husband had finished eating and about 5 minuets later I got to eat . I Just wished they could have got right .
Been there many times before. I like the location for business meetings. The food and service are usually ok. I have noticed a decline through the years however (Menu needs an update for sure). But this last time was disappointing all around. Will probably not be going back.
Such a unique style of flavor to some of your “most common” dishes. Huge selection of wines and full bar selection. Went with some friends to check out the menu for Restaurant Week. Ended up ordering from the special menu as well of the regular menu. So many options to choose from that it took us 15 min to decided on shareable plates. No disappointment from every dish ordered. Service was great...they have two people that make sure you have everything you need. FYI...Order the Salmon main dish. (It was so great I didn’t get a chance to take a photo) lol. Dessert: the Date pudding
Another great evening. Food and service were excellent.
Excellent service and good food
Delicious meal from "Restaurant Week." Outstanding service.
Not sure why service was slow. Not their norm.
Enjoyed Restaurant Week menu at my first visit here. Excellent fusion Caribbean food in a great location on Miracle Mile (easy access by Freebee, free electric car in Coral Gables).
One of our favorite restaurants it never disappoints
Great service with a "SMILE". Great fusion food !The ambiance is nice and quiet great for a romantic dinner and drink. Had the Mojito - truly the best one in South Florida.
El Caribe y sus comidas al alcance de tu mano. Puro color.
Service seems too rushed to place orders which we controlled
Ortanique is always fantastic! The food is delicious the service is great and the mango tres leeches is the best in Miami! That’s why it’s been here so long, it never loses its quality!
Vastly disappointed!! Ortanique has been the go to restaurant for pre-theater dining numerous times. We have consistently been satisfied with the experience. This reservation was made a week in advance. On arrival, we were seated at an unimaginably small table placed in the smallest available location possible. Requested a larger table and was told none were available. We were moved to a table of the same size in a slightly more desirable location. From there we watched as at least three couples were seated at larger tables. Additionally, we were told by the wait staff that the pre fixe menu was not available for patrons using the Actors Playhouse discount. I NEVER ASKED FOR THE DISCOUNT. Nonetheless, pre fixe pricing was not considered in the final billing. Complained to the Hostess, paid the bill and left. Definitely will NOT be returning any time soon.
When the server told me that you had replaced your signature cerviche with tiradito, I complained because cerviche was my appetizer every time we came over the last 15 years. The server, Sam, promised that I would be satisfied. He was right, it was better. The rest of the menu was as great as ever.
Beautiful dinner celebrating my daughter’s Vet School graduation. Our server, Ariel, was very competent. A little over zealous, since I clearly said that we wanted a leisurely service pace, but, she was very nice and the whole staff attentive. A beautiful complimentary dessert of creme brûlée was a lovely touch!
I absolutely love, love this place. Excellent cuisine, great ambiance, fabulous staff.
Dinner was, as always, excellent, and the service superb. The best part of this restaurant is its consistency -- always excellent food and excellent service. We had a wonderful Mother's Day dinner!
My favorite restaurant. Everything is delicious!! The service was amazing.
We arrived for our reservation and were told open table should never have taken the reservation. They could only seat us outside. Luckily it did not rain and was not too hot. Service outside, however, was spotty at best. Food was wonderful.
Great food. Wonderful mix of different flavors.
I have been coming to Ortanique since it opened. My favorite restaurant in the area. Cindy Hutson never disappoints. I always bring visitors, clients and business associates to Ortanique to experience this wonderful restaurant. I love dining here. The service is amazing!
Food, service and ambiance was amazing! Relaxed but attentive. Our server Samantha was a doll! Really knew the menu and made the tastiest recommendations. Can’t wait to go back!
One of our favorite restaurants
Our server Sam was wonderful, knowledgeable and very friendly. His suggestions for food and drinks were on point. Everything we had was delicious...tuna tartare, conch fritters and the tenderloin was incredibly tender and flavorful.
Almost perfect dining experience. Food was slow to come out but when it did was excellent. Service could not have been better.
Another wonderful meal. We brought friends from out of town. They had swordfish and described it as some of the best they ever had. The calamari salad is a must, delicious with plenty of calamari. Crab cakes were also great with an accompanied fruit salsa. We have never been disappointed eating here.
This is one of my favorite Restaurant in Coral gables, the hostess Gigi, will go out of her way to accommodate you, the food is amazing, the service is excellent and if you have to wait a bit for your table, the bar is out of control, see kevin or Joel for the best Mojito in Miami.
If you are in Downtown Miami
Haven't been there in about 15 years or more, but it has held up perfectly. Truly a wonderful meal -- the ceviche was exquisite, the swordfish with stone crab mac and cheese and charred succotash was simply divine, and the pork chop with couscous was wonderful. Great service too. A perfect choice. Oh, and the best mojito I've ever had (I asked if there is a choice I'd love it less sweet than most mojitos, and it was just perfect).
Love Lot food. The fish was fresh and the garnishes were outstanding!
Amazingly wonderful staff... excellent food... well worth the visit.
Never disappoints! Menu is inventive and everything tastes so fresh.
Great service, fresh fish , great mojitos, great atmosphere
The food was amazing. Friendly staff. Nice soft reggae music playing. Sat outside and the views and entire mood was great. Definitely will be going back.
As always the food was exceptional and service was A+. Highly recommend the ceviche perfect balanced, also the conch fritters were out of this world.
After so many years...still one of my favorites...always great food and great service. Recommend sitting outdoors ...less noisy. Gigi is a great hostess too.
