Amazing food! That’s one of the only things I remember about Miami from 6 years ago and we came back and it’s still amazing! Highly recommend!
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!
Great food! Service was great!
We dine here once a year and Byblo never disappoints. "A" rated all around with top notch, capable staff. Fantastic dining experience always!
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."
Absolutely loved everything about this place! Incredible food!
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.
Fabulous food and lovely new space!!
The food was wonderful but more importantly, every staff person made us feel happy to be there.
We were lucky enough to have beautiful weather and sat on the lovely, tucked away, deck.
Incredible!!!!!!!!!!! Cant say enough about this place
Top class dining in a top class environment. The service was second to none and food to match.
Wonderful service and delicious, fresh food. Great ceviche and tacos served with a friendly and kind attitude! A real gem and somewhere that’s firmly on my favourite list!
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!
Amazing food and service. One of the best ceviche I’ve tried in a while. Strongly recommend.
I choosed this resto based on reviews. Outstanding!!!! My teenage and I really like gastronomic experiences. We were so happy. Service super, really professional, food sooooo good and nice to look. We highly recommend Ola Restaurant... Our last supper in Miami before leaving and hope to come back soon:j
This is our favorite Miami restaurant. The food is outstanding. Try the marlin tacos and ceviches. Everything is delicious. PLEASE open a location in NYC!
Food was excellent. Variety of ceviche and starters as well as entrees. New location is an upgrade for outdoor dining
New location. Better then ever. A Miami favorite not to be missed
Fantastic great food and service
Outstanding food and service - highly recommended!
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.
Amazing meal, amazing service. Everytime we are in Miami we go!!
Awesome experience at OLA; first time at this location and we had a nice table outside along the river. Great service and great food!
Excellent. New location is very nice.
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.
Buoni piatti, buon servizio in un accogliente nascosto e tranquillo ristorante di cucina Sudamerica.
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.
Absolutely Amazing!! Superb service and food was unbelievable!!
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
Great Location just a short walk from many hotels and centrally positioned. Very knowledgeable wait staff and friendly greetings when you arrive. Definitely worth the visit and dining experience.
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!
Food was excellent. Unique and interesting combinations.
We go to Ola every time we go to Miami and we never been disappointed
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.
Always wonderful! Attentive service, lovely patio and outstanding and innovative food. OLA is a “can’t miss”!
Food, service and atmosphere was amazing. Loved it all. My husband and I had the best anniversary dinner!! Highly recommend!
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.
My wife and I went to OLA Restaurant for her birthday. The outside seating was quite nice. Our waiter was exceptional, perfectly helpful and informative, yet not obtrusive. The food was absolutely outstanding. We started with a superb ceviche, and Kobe meatballs, both great. My wife had a South American sea bass with fresh spinach, and I had rack of lamb with a black truffle souffle and beets with goat cheese. Both were fantastic. A really great evening.
Amazing first dinner after arriving to Miami Beach .. the service was amazing and the food ... divine . Love to share multiple appetizers and the shredded pork and my husband steak were perfect!! If we come back to Miami for sure will try this restaurant again
This meal was absolutely incredible. We haven’t had better flavors during our stay in South Beach. The complimentary cheesy bread served with appetizers was fantastic, and we saw them hand rolling the dough when we had entered the restaurant. The lobster empanada might have been the tastiest empanada I have ever tried in my life. To finish it off, the seasoning on the lamb was unexpected but delicious. Great meal here. The fire and ice ceviche was delicious, but we enjoyed the empanada and lamb course much better.
