We really enjoyed our experience at OLA. Our server, Guillerm, was friendly and great at helping us make our choices. I felt like she actually cared which is rare these days. The empanada starters are amazing and wealth worth the splurge. I had the Pionono which was very flavorful and my hubby had the yucca mash which he enjoyed immensely. We were celebrating a special occasion and were vern pleased that we chose Ola.

This may have been the best meal of my life, and considering I live in a top three food city that is saying something. The service was impeccable. The fire and ice ceviche was so memorable and interesting. The courtyard setting was majestic. It was a pricey meal but well worth it for a big birthday, which we were celebrating.

My wife and I have been to Ola many times. They have relocated a couple of times, but the food/cuisine is so delicious, every time. I grew up eating Peruvian food, so the ceviche was on point, bringing me back to the days my grandmother use to make that for us. We enjoyed the OLA meatballs made of Kobe beef, and the lobster empanada..amazingly delicious. Red Snapper special was juicy and flavorful. The chefs know what they are doing here.

Food was fantastic. But service was extremely poor. Our server didn’t check on us for an hour in between ceviche course, appetizer and entree, and it took 2 hours for our entree to come. I think the reason it took so long is because our server didn’t check on us or the food, so he didn’t realize the kitchen didn’t get the order. I think our situation was abnormal, as everyone else who arrived after us, got their entrees quicker and were checked on more frequently. And once again, the food was delicious.

Horrible experience.
Waited more than 90 minutes for main courses to arrive and then were told it would be another 15 minutes.
Appetizers tasted good but by the time the main courses would have arrived, it would have been to late.
We cancelled the mains and left disappointed.
We used to love Ola in its old location, this is nothing like it.
Won’t be back

Had 2 ceviches and chef special fish of the day grilled (no head or bones). Absolutely delicious and flawless. Little sweet bread on the side was also amazing. Do recommend!!

Service cadence was way off. Received ceviche very quickly (5 min from ordering) then waited 20 min for first parts second course, and another 30 for rest the rest of the second courses. We had to cancel the main because food took so long.

Everything was delicious! I'm gluten free and they had lots of options. Our server and the rest of the staff was very knowledgeable of the allergy friendly options including the bread. They were also super friendly and attentive. The snapper ceviche was excellent. I had the roast pork and it melted in your mouth. The flavors were delicious. My boyfriend had the filet and it was one of the most tender steaks I've ever had. We would definitely dine again.

Great mojitos and martinis! I got the tuna entree and my significant other got the chicken entree. Both were delicious. Would recommend sitting outside!
Hostess took a while to seat us but other than that the experience was great.

Love the classic 50’s vibe of the space. Food was solid. Lobster empanada was outstanding. Cuban pork was great. Our waiter spaced out on our bread service and didn’t have an appropriate response to a food question at the table and had to send the manager over. Wasn’t attentive to the table and Forgot to bring the check and had to be reminded

We joined the Ola team on Thanksgiving and had an outstanding Cuban dinner ... the food, service and atmosphere was perfect for the holiday celebration as we just landed in MIA from Los Angeles at 5pm and then off to a wonderful dinner at 8pm!!! Thanks to the team working on Thanksgiving to take care of us so well. Make sure to have the “Short Rib Empanadas” and the “Roasted Pork” ... oh so wonderful!!!

We booked Ola during a recent break in Miami Beach, having had it recommended to us by friends. The food was fabulous, the Fire and Ice Ceviche and the Deconstructed Key Lime Pie have to be tried. Great service from people who were knowledgeable and passionate about the menu. They also managed to find out it was my birthday! Stand out meal of the holiday, would definitely return.

Very nice restaurant. It has a warm and friendly vibe but feels upscale at the same time.

The food was delicious from first course to dessert.

I had the Lobster Ceviche to start. It was a wonderful blend of flavors. I especially appreciated the Tabasco sorbet.

The Octopus Chispas was good but the least successful dish of the evening. The plating and lack of significant octopus was a bummer. It came in a small bowl of sauce that was hard to navigate and appreciate all the flavors. It was still tasty. I am just used to luxurious, tender octopus and this was not that.

The Roast Cuban Pork was delightful and a perfect balance of flavors. The house-made pork cracklin on top was the highlight of the night. I could have eaten a whole pile of those.

Finishing the meal was a delicious Quatro Leches Dessert. It was not too sweet but certainly took care of my sweet tooth.

From the very warm greeting to the end of the meal was fantastic. I hope I get to dine here again in the not too distant future.

We went for lunch but should have done dinner like we usually do - they don't have meatballs or bread on the lunch menu which was disappointing.
