My prior visit to Ola was in a different location a number of years back, yet I remembered the outstanding food, so I was keen to return. Very happy to report that the flavors and dishes were wonderfully architected - delightful Peruvian styles with warm, attentive service. Quite possibly my favorite restaurant in all of Miami!

Our visit to Ola was spectacular. The food is the star. Latin Fusion is probably the best description. One could easily make a meal of the numerous appetizers they offer. The Hamachi Ceviche and the Lobster Ceviche were awesome. The Lobster empanada was terrific. For main courses we shared three entrees (Fish Special Lamb and Jadori Chicken. All incredible flavors and finest quality. We had not been there since 2018 and were not disappointed. Except for the location change it was everything I said it was then. In my opinion, the BEST RESTURANT in South Beach.

The restaurant was amazing dining experience. The appetizers are so delicious. The waiter was courteous and welcoming. The restaurant is located in Hilton Gates Hotel. The bread is tasty and so so good. We got the specials the Seabass with seafood around it. The sauce for the seabass was so delicious.

Ola is still my all-time favorite restaurant after 12 years.

The food never disappoints. Service is great (although, we will miss Jackson and wish him luck in his next endeavors!).

Ola continues to serve some of the best and most creative food. This was my third time there, and each has been terrific. It was a great birthday dinner.

Not the Ola of 2018. New location but terrible service and food. If you like a nice restaurant experience and good food do not go there. The waiter was horrible.

I used to go a lot in the old space. Lovely space, disorganized service and food quality down. No more marlin tacos, now they have other fish I can get elsewhere with too much Mayo, tapioca buns not as amazing as they used to be and ready of food was just ok.

Despite being in 3 locations in the past few years, OLA remains one of South Beach's top restaurants. Definitely try the Fire & Ice if you go.

I was really looking forward to this place as the reviews on Yelp were amazing. Like many miami restaurants I felt like the food had more focus on presentation than taste. The gnocchi in our chicken dish came out cold. The red snapper special was ok but nothing out of this world. The best was the lobster ceviche but the entrees were underwhelming and maybe because it was sitting for too long before they brought it out.

A regular favorite for me. The ceviche is great as are the empanada and meatballs. The Salmon was a new one for me and highly repeatable though I thought the Cuban pork was overrated compared to the other dishes though by no means bad.

Excellent food. The ceviche was very good, the Ola Meatballs were a must order and complimented the ceviche perfectly. The entrees were very good. Excellent service and an excellent chef/menu. This place checks all the boxes. We are south beach veterans at this point and this place is now a staple. Enjoy!

Covid prevented us from visiting in 2020 so this was our first visit to the new location. This place may very well be the best food in Miami. Fun location. Great service. Even better than the last time and the new place is awesome!

Weird location but don’t be fooled - the food is incredible! Every single thing we had was outstanding from the delicious little rolls they bring you to the braised beef empanadas, Hamaci ceviche and slow roasted pork. Not to be missed. Ambiance a little lacking but food won’t disappoint.

We’ve had some very good meals here in Miami. The meal at OLA is by far the best that we’ve had so far. The cocktails were wonderful. The lamb was insanely good. Probably the best that I’ve ever had. Lots of outdoor seating. Deserts were alsoi amazing.

Food is good, but service is absolutely terrible.
There was 1 waiter for all the 15 tables inside. It took 2h and 1/2 for a 2 course dinner!

Would not recommend, overall a very frustrating experience, especially since it is very expensive

Food was amazing. I ate at the bar and I found the bar tender to be a little rude. Several mojitos on the menu and I asked him which one he recommended and he said “those are our recommendations, that’s why they are on the menu”. I’m sure they get sick of tourists but it wouldn’t have hurt to be nicer.

Food was great - fire and ice cevice was amazing. And yes the mojito’s were too!
