We go to Ola every time we go to Miami and we never been disappointed
Ola is in a terrific new canal-side location, just far enough away from the touristy tumult on Collins Avenue. The service team is top notch and expertly attentive. The deliciously executed Latin fare is as good as it gets, in a town filled with Latin restaurants.
Always wonderful! Attentive service, lovely patio and outstanding and innovative food. OLA is a “can’t miss”!
Food, service and atmosphere was amazing. Loved it all. My husband and I had the best anniversary dinner!! Highly recommend!
Make sure to request outdoor seating.
Our take, as SoBe locals: OLA was “good”, but not so much so that we’d return again. The best part of our evening was likely the service we received.
We started with the “Fire & Ice” ceviche, short rib empanadas, OLA meatballs, and two of their premium mojitos.
For mains, we chose the roast Cuban pork and pionono entrees, followed with the “Da Bomb” and layered flan de queso ice cream for dessert.
Of these, the pionono — while non-traditional — was exceptional.
This meal was absolutely incredible. We haven’t had better flavors during our stay in South Beach. The complimentary cheesy bread served with appetizers was fantastic, and we saw them hand rolling the dough when we had entered the restaurant. The lobster empanada might have been the tastiest empanada I have ever tried in my life. To finish it off, the seasoning on the lamb was unexpected but delicious. Great meal here. The fire and ice ceviche was delicious, but we enjoyed the empanada and lamb course much better.
Delicious contemporary Latin cuisine. Terrific ceviches and seafood entrees. Warm and attentive service. The chocolate cigar is a can’t-miss dessert.
We loved the old location. This was our first visit to the new one. We sat outside which was excellent but we did not think the inside was as nice as it was in past. Food and service were terrific as usual!
Just found this place by accident... was pleasantly surprised at how fantastic the food was. Had great service and excellent bar menu - you could find anything imaginable for drinks. I love the Cuban style of the restaurant and had great ambiance. Would definitely go back.
Fantastic. Food was incredible and service impeccable.
Delicious and slightly unusual but not too weird.
A bit of everything.
Lots of ceviche but I quit eating raw seafood months ago. ...so I can't say! Will send my family that loves ceviche.
Great authentic food! Every part of each course was very flavorful. The Corn Empanadas were outstanding. Both the Salmon that my daughter had and the Chicken that was my entree had such amazing flavors. OLA is a definite place to go for authentic food in Miami!
Very pleasant. Great waitstaff
Food very good, but preferred the old location!
Celebrated our 39th. wedding anniversary at the new location this year. The outside dining on the deck is very quiet and comfortable. I like that the tables are not crowded. The quality of the food and service is as good as ever.
This was one of the best meals I ever had. Loved the snapper ceviche, corn empanadas and flan ice cream dessert. Service was outstanding. Do not hesitate to go. Delicious!
Ola was fantastic all around. The service was incredibly attentive and the food was wonderful, simple, but excellently prepared. Thank you!
Had the fire and ice, corn empanadas and the key lime pue
Excellent food and excellent service. Love the mix of Spanish influences. The ceviches are some of the best I have had. Love the lobster empanadas as well. The whole snapper was delicious as well. Definitely would dine here again.
Rushed us through the meal. Too salty. My guest hated what he ate. Service inattentive
Thank you for helping us celebrate our Sisters 40th Birthday! The food was amazing. We had a fabulous evening!
Comimos muuuy bien, muy rico y diferente.
Nos encantó el ceviche clásico.
Las copas no fueron lo mejor.
We have loved OLA for many years and were so happy they reopened! The new location is beautiful and feels like the spirit that is OLA. Happily, the same wonderful team is in place providing outstanding service and the same high quality cuisine is coming out of the kitchen. Terrific wine list, with many gems that pair beautifully with the delicious food. Terrace dining was so lovely this past weekend. Don't miss the ceviche options - creative, but honor the traditional idea of ceviche.
Delicious hamache ceviche. Best I've ever had. Seasoning was spectacular.
Tuna entree was delicious and prepared perfectly as I had requested it as rare as possible. Nice sized portion as well. Husband ordered Cuban pork and was in heaven! Dessert did not disappoint: da Bomb. Outrageously chocolate and delicious! Perfect for his birthday!
We also started the evening with two Pisco Sours, which were probably the best we've ever tasted.
Highly recommend dinner here. Ask to be seated outside. Ambience lovely in the garden.
Excellent meal and ambience. I highly recommend it.
Food and Service was excellent!
We loved the new location. We have eaten here several times over the years.we are from out of town. Whenever we come to Miami Beach we always eat here
It was my turn to treat a couple of buddies of mine and I decided to take them to Ola. We had a fantastic experience! The service was great and the food was even better! I had a delicious cucumber drink (twice). We shared the steak, salmon, and lamb. Highly recommend. Try the meatball appetizer...delicious! Will definitely go there again!
Corvino (fish of the day) was wonderful.
I was in Miami for business for about 7 days and visited many establishments. We found this Gem and went back twice after haven been disappointed at so many other establishments!
Service was very good with lots of explanations of the menu and the food was the best we had all week. Treat yourself and give it a try.
Very good food but very expensive. I think some prices are overrated.
Great pork main course
Everything was delicious! Those Pan de Bono rolls are out of this world!!!
We’ve been enjoying the delicious, inventive, well executed Central/South AMERICAN cuisine for many years and glad they found a new home after firmer was damaged in hurricane Irma.
Great place with great food ! I will make sure to be back soon !
Thought we went to the wrong place initially - it is no longer at the Sanctuary Hotel but a hotel way off the beaten path. The outdoor area is right next to a stream, it was fine the night we were there but thinking it could get buggy during the summers. Cool indoor area though. Felt as if the menu was pretty limited but what we ended up ordering was very good. Two of us got the same thing due to the limited menu. Food was a bit pricey as well.
Wonderful food and caring waitstaff. Sat outside in beautiful ambiance.
OLA is spectacular! Unique, friendly, professional, glorious food, funky indoors and a fabulous outdoor patio. OLA is a “can’t miss”!
Chose OLA based on the reviews here and we were not disappointed. The menu is creative and the food is very good.
Wide variety of interesting ceviche. Great lobster empanada and grilled octopus. We had the whole snapper special of the day that was incredibly fresh, perfectly cooked and boneless. Tasty cheese biscuits .Good service with friendly staff. Good and reasonably priced wine list. Pleasant seating outdoors
