The ceviche portions are very generous and delicious.
Our two main courses, the Peruvian chicken and the Cuban pork were just okay. We both were not impressed. They need to work on the flavors.
Food texture and presentation was good.

This OLA has no resemblance to the old one which used to love. We had one of the worst dining experiences we have ever had. Long hairs found in the food…wine that had been open for days.

Fabulous as always. We always come here when in South Beach. Tried the octopus which was out of this world, very tender and flavorful. Also tried the seafood special. The sauce was incredible. This place never disappoints.

The mixto was the best ceviche I’ve ever had. My friend got the steak and I can easily say it’s the best steak I’ve tasted. Worth every cent. THANKYOU for an amazing dinner Ola!

The food was amazing, but our waiter had his mask under the mouth, closer to the chin just to comply with the mandate of wearing a mask. It is tough enough to take care of oneself and close friends, for a waiter that has to deal with plenty of people to disregard biosecurity measures.

I am extremely disappointed that you are not enforcing these protections among your staff for the wellbeing of your patrons

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!).

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.
