We had a spectacular meal at OLA. First, the food was amazing, innovative, flavorful. The Colombian chef is on top of his game with this Latin Fusion menu. Call it what you want, all I know is From the ceviche, to chicharron to dessert, the food was only matched by outstanding service. They have been there for 3 years and will be moving to a bigger and better location on Collins, about 3 blocks away. I will be back, many times; it’s that good.

OLA is at the top of the fine dining establishments that deserve a visit whenever we get to Miami. The food and presentation is equal to the best in all of Miami with an eclectic menu of Latin and South American food prepared to perfection.

This was always one of our favorite restaurants. This was our first time at its new location. The food was great as usual but the service lacked and the place does not have a good enough air unit(may be the design) so we were sweating the entire time we were there. The waiters said they were aware and blamed it on the doors to the terrace which are constantly being opened. Despite the great food, I doubt we would return :(

We have been to South Beach a number of times and always book at least one dinner here. The food, service and experience are the best anywhere. The people are awesome! Lobster empanada is perfect with sweet lobster filling and ever so slightly crunchy squid ink crust. Enjoyed a duck confit app that was equally impressive. Dinner was the salmon special braised with skin on and served over the most amazingly prepared veggies. One of the best restaurants in South Beach.

Excellent food.
We had a table in the terrace on the river, very nice atmosphere and not noisy at all. The service was perfect.
Quite overpriced, but in line with south beach high quality restaurants.
I would recommend it!

Cute place, super expensive- came with a 7 year old and the waiter suggested a chicken and rice dish for her- it was $28. That's insane for a kids meal. Had a tuna taco appetizer that literally tasted like tuna salad that was also in the $28 range- way too $$ for what you get- was resort pricing without the resort.

I highly recommend OLA restaurant. We had a romantic evening, sitting on the deck next to the river, with little lights hanging from the trees. The food was excellent, the service was impeccable. Get the ceviche - to die for good. Nice wine list, too. Highly recommend.

I went on Friday night dinner with a friend to celebrate her birthday. The service was amazing from the time we walked up to the restaurant. The food was very tasty and perfectly prepared. We ordered short rib empanadas, chicharron, yucca fries, the chimichurri steak and the fish of the day. Very Large portions for our entrees and again so delicious. My friend decided against dessert, however we still received a complimentary sorbet with happy birthday on the plate and a candle. We sat out on the river which was beautiful. The ambiance is perfect for an occasion or date night.

OLA was SO good. My girlfriend and I had an absolutely fantastic romantic dinner one our last night in Miami, overlooking a bog full of trees shooting out of the water, and they had moving, sparkling white lights dancing around this backdrop like thousands of fire flies. Even though they highway was directly on the other side of the aforementioned bog, the air was nonetheless full of the sounds of glasses clinking and forks and knives hitting plates as Jazz music blared and the highway gave off but a mere rumble; nothing worse than the sound of a constant wave crashing in the distance. It was bliss.
