This was our first time at O'Lima Signature Cuisine. We were thrilled that we discovered it thanks to Miami Spice. The food was amazing and the service was great! We can't wait to go back.

We were meeting our nephew in Miami and looked up good restaurants near our hotel and thought O'Lima looked good. The reviews were right. The food and service were excellent. The next time we are in town we will definitely return. The vibe was warm and friendly, the servers were knowledgable about the menu and the recommendations were impeccable.

A great restaurant and the best Peruvian restaurant we have ever dined at anywhere. The seafood (Ceviche and Tiradito) is incredibly fresh and beautifully presented. It is now on our short list of restaurants to dine at every time we go to Miami.

We happened to have been the last people there despite it being an hour before closing- I’m sure the staff was hoping to go home early, but if they did, no one would ever know. The service was great and the food was delicious. Everything suggested was phenomenal- ceviche, octopus, seabass. Thank you!

Aside from food presentation and service, the delightful taste of various sauces in combination with the seafood, duck and other meats, is worth a visit and even more so, a return visit.

Great upscale Peruvian restaurant. All signatury ceviches and tiraditos with unbelievable sauces. As many times we were there it is difficult to make it to a main course as you must try all their appetizers. And classic or passion fruit pisco sour not to miss

We have been there for dinner very often and have found the food to be fresh, the
service is extraordinary, the restaurant is in a very good location with plenty of
parking and now they add music at night and it makes the atmosphere incredible.

Our waitress was a great help, she made amazing recommendations. Our passion fruit pisco sour started out the night in a really fun way. The grilled seafood ceviche was unique. We shared a mouth watering octopus and equally mouth watering sea bass. The flavour was equally matched by the attention to detail on the beautiful plates. I highly recommend it and will happily go back next time I am in town

fantastic gem at least for the uninitiated in Peruvian cuisine. Food was delicious and intriguing. Wait staff was very attentive and informative. We didn't get to eat outside but that did not change the experience for us.

O'Lima has become one of my all time favorite restaurants. The food is outstanding and the service is great. The last two times I had dinner there the Chef came to our table, introduced himself and asked if we were enjoying the food and service - this is not something that normally happens in good restaurants.

Delicious and unique Peruvian based dishes. The ceviches were terrific: mahi mahi with chutney was out of this world. Friendly, understated service and pleasant outdoor dining on an active but not too noisy street. Surprisingly affordable especially for this neighborhood.

Mediocre food,many dishes drenched in sauces of unknown origin. I say “unknown” because the waiters could not explain what they were since they did nor speak English well enough to converse about ingredients. Not a terrible place. Adequate, but not a place that I would hope to go back to.

O'Lima transported me back to Peru with its delicious ceviches (made just like the ones I had in Lima), lomo saltado, and lucuma dessert. I recognized many of the dishes, but O'Lima also puts its own twist on and elevates some classic Peruvian foods. Excellent service. Try the yucca appetizer, the ceviche, the lomo saltado, the octopus, and the lucuma dessert. Highly recommend!

The octopus alone makes this restaurant worth the drive. The ambiance is blah but that might be due to the fact that we went during "high season" and the tourist crowd was comprised primarily of cranky, complaining city dwellers. The owners take a lot of pride in their restaurant as well as their authentic cuisine. I recommend going early and selecting a corner table or even one outside.

The service was poor Probably one of Miami Beach standard’, when you keep having tips included to your check.
We waited a long time before getting our menus, we had to ask for things multiple times. Our table was not clear between courses....
The food is good, but portion are too large. Don’t go there for the décor you will be disappointed. The wine list is far from being exciting.

Olima was great as usual. This restaurant is one of the gems in the area, most certainly in Bal Harbor and vicinity. New owners but same chef, more people need to frequent this eatery to assure its survival. How many times can you just go out to eat Italian food? Come on! Really! Regards. Ned.
