Excellent ambiance and fantastic food. The cornish hen was the best I've ever had. Conveniently located next door to the Miracle Theater/Playhouse.

Service was good; food was OK; thought the place was noisy for as big as it was; was not impressed with the people bringing the food to the table.....outside of the waitress, their appearance was dirty looking, one specifically was sweaty and had dirty hands..

We had not been to Ortanique for a few years. Always heard that it was still very good so we decided to go. The food was great, service was good! Place was packed with pre-show people. We had appetizers then the Bouillabaisse and the Corvina. All excellent and abundant.

The only issue came with the bill...when I reviewed the bill, i noticed two items that surprised me.
$4.00 for 4 Blue cheese Olives(for our 4 Martinis)
$1.50(yes one dollar-fifty cents) for anchovies for my Cesar salad.
SERIOUSLY???!!

This was disappointing since the total bill was almost $200. This is not an inexpensive restaurant. For the patronage that visit this restaurant, they really should think twice about 'nickel and diming' us. Ortanique needs to follow the example of many other CG eateries, Abracci , Seasons 52, Doc B, House, for instance, where we get the Blue Cheese olives and Anchovies included.

I will think twice before returning.

This was our second time to Ortanique on the Mile and of course we had a great experience again. We had a delicious dinner from the Miami Spice Menu. I had the Cesar Salad and Salmon with rice and my husband had Peppers and Chicken with pasta. For dessert I had a Strawberry Sherbet and my husband had a Mango Tres Leches. Service was excellent. Restaurant was packed on a Saturday night, so you should make reservations. We will be back!

We have come to Ortanique many times. The food is great, but a little pricey, so we mostly come here for special occasions.

The food is sort if American, but everything has Caribbean flare and flavors, like the grilled pork chops...American right, except done with drunken raisins (rum soaked), and arrow con moros! DELICIOUS!

A newly discovered gem and we loved it! We booked for 5 and at the last minute two more joined our group. The receptionist didn't blink an eye before happily agreeing to make up a larger table for us.

Excellently prepared fish, paired with a lovely chardonnay made our evening perfect in the lively, vibrant atmosphere. Our server was great and all the wait staff did an excellent job of removing dishes, cutlery, etc.

Loved it!

I had not been to this restaurant in several years and I was happy to be back. The decor, the ambience, and the food were excellent. I was not happy with the service because we had three different servers come to our table. At the end of the meal we had to flag down a fourth server to get our bill and they took quite a long time to bring it back. I was also very disappointed with the quality of one of the servers. She stacked the plates at our table One by one which is not something you do at a restaurant of this caliber. And it wasn’t that she was stacking them on her arm, she was doing it at the table which was in very poor taste.

After going to Zest, I had been wanting to try this restaurant for quite some time. I decided to take my mom for Miami Spice. The server started off great and was very sweet. However, we received our entree pretty late and she seemed to have disappeared. We kept asking for her but she never came to check on us or ask how our food was. One dish had duck and it arrived cold in comparison to the vegetables on the side. The same thing went for the salmon dish I had ordered. The salmon was colder than the veggies. We also ordered a 2nd round of drinks to arrive with the entree, but they came after. Thankfully, the manager took those two drinks off the bill for us. But we still never knew why we received our food so late or why the server disappeared and took so long to get back to us. IT could have been busy, but communication is essential.

Unique menu. Food was a bit salty...I like salt but both a bisque and fritters were very salty. Main courses were excellent, fresh, well prepared and presented, very good flavors. Service wasn't quite "on." A bit slow and inattentive and had to be reminded to bring the Sangria. All in all, a nice experience which was "made" by the uniqueness of the cuisine.

We enjoyed a very relaxing and yummy Miami Spice lunch. The appetizer of Shishito peppers was very delicious and the mahi mahi (wonderful, fresh piece of fish) with boniato mash was excellent. The pork loin was also very good. Service was super with Jojo being extremely attentive and accommodating without being intrusive. Desserts were only OK; had they been as interesting and divine as other years, it would merit 5 stars. Vanilla ice cream with pieces of a mediocre brownie does not a fabulous dessert make. However, this was the only flaw.

A food blogger friend recommended this excellent restaurant when I told him I was going to be in Coral Gables to see a play at Actors Playhouse with a dear friend. This restaurant was immediately next door to the theater, and the entire experience of the meal was fantastic. We both enjoyed our meals so very much. Thanks to Ortanique for a lovely meal and evening in The Gables.

The wait here is ridiculous. We waiting 40 minutes for a table with a reservation. We were sent to the bar to wait until a table opened. We spoke to several other guests who were also waiting a long time for a table. There were 3 tables open while I waited and did not understand why we were no seated. After waiting 40 minutes I finally went to the hostess to complain. I asked why those tables were remaining unused she responded that “she could not answer that question” and that I could sit at anyone of those tables. The hostess went to each table to ask the name under reservation to mark those guests as seated. The operational flow of this place is HORRIBLE.

After the long wait I hoped that the food was worth the wait. Turns out the food is just Okay. Nothing impressive. More inspired by Caribbean cuisine. Next part of the food experience was the bread as the starter and the bread pudding dessert.

This restaurant is definitely overrated.
