I had not been to Ortanique in a long time and we were all disappointed with the food . Our cesar salads were so salty that we couldn’t pass the first bite . The waiter suggested maybe we didn’t know they had anchovies . We have eaten cesar before ! They were replaced but took a long time . My corvina was way too peppery and felt like someone went crazy with black pepper . Those that had tuna all liked it but felt the portion was too small .All in all the wait was long but our waiter was one of the best ever and made up for the delays and food . Will not return . Miracle Mile has restaurants competing side by side and they need to step up their game . The experience and look felt dated.

Owner/chef stopped by to introduce herself and make us feel welcome. Wait staff was terrific. Caesar salad and entrees were very tasty. Will visit again when in the Miami area.

My only complaint about Ortanique has always been that they don't know how to honor their reservations. They will always overbook and make you wait an hour for a table. This last time they not only made us wait at the bar but we started noticing empty tables and when I went back to the hostess stand they didn't even recognize that my guest and I were waiting almost an hour for a table. I stopped going there for over a year because of this happening in the past and they just did it again. Some things never change

We were in town for a business meeting and it was delicious! We had the leek soup, tuna tartare, and the scallops with bokchoy and perfectly cooked coconut rice. Each dish was fantastic!! I will definitely be back again!!!

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. The service could be better. They should notice if a drink is needed without having to flag down someone who’s not your server for one.

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

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!
