It was funny because I walked by this place on my way to the beach and thought this place looks great but I dont' think my inlaws would like it. Well after we dipped our toes in the sand, we get a text that they came here! So win-win. We had great cocktails (cuba libre, mojitos, miami vices) and got... More

Nachos weren't good. Steak sandwich had uncooked onions. Margarita was good & singer was good! He interacted with audience but sang country western music, not what u expect from Mexican restaurant.

We so enjoyed the menu and atmosphere of eating al fresco. They are quite accommodating in customizing dishes--mine a "burrito salad" was delicious. I'd definitely go again.

We stopped by many times before - this time with our little dog. Service is always friendly and quick. We love the flat bread(s) - tried quite a few. Drinks are OK - just get the extra floater (makes a big difference). Our dog got her own water bowl and loved the flat bread we shared with her (how about... More

We went here two nights in a row after dinner elsewhere. Nice bar, good drink menu, good service, live music. Open later than most other places. Friendly and quick service. Take an evening/night stroll down this pedestrian street and La Ola will catch your eye.

My wife and I were wandering through Times Square one night while on vacation and we were stopped in front of La Ola by a lady that was promoting their 12 string guitar entertainer and their food. We had already eaten but came back the next night and the same entertainer was there so when we decided to sit down... More
