we LOVE this place! Everytime we're in Miami OLA is a must in our dinner reservations. Anyone going through Miami really should dine here without a doubt! The food is exceptional! The staff/ambiance and convenient location to South Beach are a big addition as well!

A beautiful setting for a wonderful dinner. We went just after we arrived at SB and were delighted with the outdoor seating. You felt you were in someone’s private garden having a gourmet dinner. The mixto ceviche was fresh and delicious. Grouper special was a unique presentation with shellfish and green. The Cuban pork was outstanding. Wine selections were sufficient and well paired. Service was flawless. Definitely worth a visit. Given the number of restaurants in the area this was above and beyond for an experience

Food was awesome! Had the lobster empanada with squid ink shell for an app. Amazingly flavor. Cooked perfectly. Tuna tartare was equally impressive. Shared an entree of rare tuna chops over a goat cheese purée with sautéed spinach. The flavors were perfect together. I would have never thought to pair goat cheese with tuna but it worked incredibly well. Highly recommended. The service deserves a special mention as it was outstanding!

When the Michelin guide finally gets around to reviewing restaurants in Miami, I am sure OLA is going to get a star. The ceviche is amazing, particularly the "fire and ice."

Love the food. Long time OLA fan from when they were back at Sanctuary. Food is even better than before but miss the terrace dining and not into hotel lobby dining - if you want the bar for dinner. That said, one of the most consistent dining experiences in SoBe.

We eat here every time we visit Miami Beach. Everything is always perfect and the staff treats us like we were family. Short rib empanadas and the Cuban roast pork are our favorites, although we've had most menu items over the years and all were enjoyed. Also a very nice wine list that pairs well with the menu. We highly recommend Ola!

Ola is a fun place to go, very nice space, good food, good place to go with friends to share stuff. Nice sounding cocktails that in some cases just don’t have enough booze, a plague that seems to be contagious among some fine dining establishments in Miami. Seems silly to pay $14-15 for what is effectively a few ounces of passion fruit juice! Restaurants must get away from mandating cheep “shot” pours in cocktails and allow their mixologists to make correct drinks. An extra $1 of alcohol would make all the difference, charge me I’ll pay! Otherwise a good place for upscale Cuban. Regards. Ned.

The place is super nice, you cant see it from outside but when you go inside its really nice, the people its friendly and the service its super good, the food was good and interesting flavors, the drinks were good but i think its too expensive for the food you get, we had 2 drinks each, one empanada, one tuna tartare and one main dish and spend like 200 $, the portions are small too.

Well appointed restaurant with enjoyable outdoor dining. service is very attentive and oriented to guest enjoyment. Food recommendation was excellent and the food was well prepared. We shared the whole fish special and it served two of us easily. Tuna tartar and salmon ceviche were our appetizers and both were creatively prepared and served. Highly recommend. For outdoor dining on a nice evening, a reservation is helpful.

Food sounds much better then it is.
We had to return one ceviche which clearly wasn’t fresh and tasted old.
The bus boys stand in unison staring at the tables which felt uncomfortable.
Will not return

We dined at OLA based on the reviews and we were not disappointed! We live in Delray Beach and came to Miami for a quick "getaway", as we often do. Many times we are disappointed by the quality of food and/or service experience in Miami as often you are paying for "the scene".
I can't really say OLA was a "scene" given we were their first reservation of the evening (we had someplace to be by 8pm) and it was very quiet, however the food and service were excellent! I would describe it as a hidden gem. We will definitely return!

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.

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.
