    This is one of my all time favorites when visiting Miami. The pan de bono (Colombian sweet bread that they serve before your meal) is amazing and their ceviche is divine. I’ve tried many of their main dishes and while the special is usually the best, their salmon and filet dishes are also outstanding.

    OLA is a fabulous find here in Miami Beach that our whole family absolutely loved! Everyone from the Hostess and Maitre’D to the various wait staff that served us were great. This is what I was imagining for food when we came to Miami Beach. Latin Inspired, at least 5 types of Civeche on the menu, great apps, salads and entres. In addition, they were very kid friendly. We came early b/c of our kids, but we were just as welcome and treated just as well as others w/o kids under 5. Can’t say that for everywhere here in SOBE…. Be sure to enjoy their dinner rolls too. Very unique and gluten free.

    We have been going to Ola since 2004 when it was in the Sanctuary Hotel. It was great. The last few times it has not been good. Last night We ordered short rib empanadas, cold! We ordered smoked fish tacos, no Smokey flavor and lobster empanadas that barely had lobster. The $18 tequila was barely a full shot of tequila as I watched the bartender pour it I was simply irritated. It was so irritating we never bothered to order entrees. We paid our ridiculous check and left. What makes it worse is the man at the podium who we have seen at Ola since 2003 lacks any warmth and is unwelcoming. Never need to go back.

    Lots of tables outdoors on Indian Creek make this a lovely place to dine. The food was outstanding if pricy. The cuisine is Latin. There were lots of choices for ceviche; we shared a Thai ceviche which was delicious and more like a carpaccio. We also shared the Waygu beef meatballs, which we enjoyed but it seemed like not too many for $26. We also shared the whole snapper, which was perfectly cooked with lovely tiny pepper accents; a generous portion, we took some home. The hot-out-of-the-oven rolls, made with queso blanco, were out of this world. Our server was especially well-informed about the dishes and ingredients.

    We had not been to Ola in many many years. Nice to see even a move to a new location didn’t change the excellent service or tasty food. Recommendations: any ceviche, short rib empanadas & tenderloin. Delicious

    We were in the area for a medical specialist appointment. OLA was recommended and we were lucky to get a reservation as was Spring Breakers everywhere. Wait staff was very attentive and explained the dishes to assist us in picking out our choices. Food was beautifully presented and so delicious. Recommend this restaurant with 10/10.

    The menu is eclectic and heavily favors meat products. The ensalada de pulpo features charred octopus tentacle on a bed of greens and tastes like calamari. The Red Snapper entree was delicious and filling. The Sugar Cane Tuna was disappointing. I expected a firm, steak-like texture but got something that was a cross between poached tilapia and Miami Beach sand. The service was a disgrace to the name. We were virtually ignored through much of the meal although other tables seemed to get lots of attention. We did nothing to offend our server of which we were aware , yet had to ask other staff to send our server over three times. I’m sure these are not comments the management wants to see but offered to provide an opportunity to improve. If other’s experience is as disappointing as ours was, they will find themselves shuttering their business.

    The service was excellent and the food was very flavorful. We didn’t know what dessert we wanted so the waiter brought us two options… one on the house. Will definitely come back here next time we’re in Miami.

    It was windy outside so check the weather before you assume outdoor dining. Otherwise, we had a very nice evening. Shared the ceviche and fillet mignon- the surprise star was the meatballs with foie gras sauce - delicious!

    We’ve been coming for 10 years. The outdoor area is large and comfortable. The food is reliable and generally pretty good. Service is okay, but a bit harried. My only complaint is that not one thing has changed on the menu in 10 years — not one — and there is never a special (other than the fish being served in the pescado del dia). I guess that’s a trade-off for reliability, but it doesn’t have to be.
