One of our favorite places for many years, have shared great meals on special occasions with friends, family and out of town guests. Excellent service, food, ambiance, and the best mojitos ever! Happy hour at bar with bar food is also great, but must stay for dinner and enjoy their garlic and parsley butter bread - it's the best!!! Also... More

The food is just too good to explain in a little online review. It was orgasmic. The host was wonderful, I was a bit under dressed but there was no problem. Sophisticated yet non-pretentious, the servers were awesome, it was a great dining experience all around. I would recommend this place to anyone. The brie salad, bisque soup, lamb dish... More

Promising "cuisine of the sun" - whatever that means - Ortanique delivers a creative, eclectic mix of dishes heavy on seafood but light in all other ways. Salmon and rice was delicate and well-flavored, omnipresent codfish balls were light and flavorful and black bean soup was thick and spicy. Drinks continued this spicy creativity with mixes involving great combinations. Service... More

The flavors of the Caribbean find their way into all the spectacular dishes served at Ortanique on Miracle Mile. Cindy Hutson designs dishes like a kaleidoscope of color, with soothing cocktails and delectable desserts to match.

What a find! Located along Miracle Mile in Coral Gables, this is a true gem. Every menu item looked more adventurous than the next without taking us outside our comfort zone. From appetizer through our meals, the flavors were nothing less than fantastic. An upscale and vibrant establishment, we had a very comfortable table. The only minor knock for us... More

The food and the service at Ortanique are consistently excellent. This is one of those restaurants where I easily find at least four or five tempting entree's on the menu every time, and whatever I finally settle on never disappoints. I have also experienced that the staff will work with you if exactly what you want is not on the... More

While visiting South Beach recently we met old friends at their favorite restaurant, Ortanique in Coral Gables. What a treat! The ambience was perfect; quiet, friendly, perfectly lighted and great service. My salad was fantastic. It included a hint of mint and it was better than I could have imagined. We had a bite of short ribs as an appetizer... More

One of my favorite restaurants... Period... This time we tried the clams and mussels over a broth... Wow, can't wait to go back again. Ernesto, GM, is very gracious. Cindy is always top notch. Always receiving great reviews.. I wonder why that is....
