Top 10 meal for taste ever. Absolutely incredible dishes and between 4 of us we probably had 1/2 the menu. This place it an absolute must. The ambience is just ok / kind of old school but service is really good and all in food and drink experience was amazing. Shoutout to bartender as well - solid drinks.

this chef knows his flavor pairing and we had some of the best tasting ever. Try the Lobster ceviche and any empanadas specials . Split a dinner or make a meal of three or four tastings instead.

No one was in the restaurant at 6.15 pm
The door handle to get into the restaurant was filthy
The table had a bug on it when we sat down
The menus were taped together with thick blue tape and it looked like it was a pre-school project
We left and will never go back
I tipped the Valet $20 for parking but he never gave me a ticket (must have pocketed the money.

I recommend or take visitors to South Florida for a Latin food experience that isn’t the heavy fat infused Cuban food found in very traditional local restaurants.

This is one of my wife and I’s favorite Miami restaurants. We always visit when in town. We were unaware that they moved and received a reservation confirmation call prior which included info on the new location. When we arrived at the new location we chose to sit out doors and were a bit disappointed. There were hope guests in bathing suits and regular street wear walking through the outdoor alfresco seating. The traffic from the cars o the expressway was quite loud as the part of the outdoor seating is on Collins Ave and is adjacent to the pickup/drop off valet station for the hotel. For some this may not be an issue however memories of the exclusive location set off the main street, away from traffic with a more upscale clientele was preferred. For a special occasion I would recommend inside seating. However if interested in people watching and counting how many late European spots cars come rumbling down Collins, outside is your best choice.

The food was relatively good as remembered. We had the corn empanadas and swordfish tacos to start along with the Peruvian cheese bread. All were as good as remembered. For the main course we both had the Pionono. Although the dish was good something was missing which we still can’t put our finger on; possibly the original recipe has been modified. For dessert we shared the chocolate dessert “Da Bomb” and it was very good as well.

The staff were attentive, responsive, and polished as should be expected of the caliber of restaurant we remembered. Overall a decent experience but the new location in our opinion was a let down. This won’t stop us from visiting when next in town but it may not be our go to intimate Miami Beach dining spot any longer.

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.

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.
