So American Cuisine with So Beach Attitude

We made reservations for 7, which is funny, because apparently no one eats there that early. Come later for the live music and the gorgeous crowd. Bolivar's menu is perfect for trying all sorts of South American dishes. We chose the 8 Tapas for $38, a total bargain, and more food than we could... read more

Really tasty food. We found this place thanks to TripAdvisor. We ate tapas and it was really good. Great service as well. Unfortunately the menu on the website was old so instead of 7 tapas for 27 dollar we paid 38 dollar. Annoying and quite rude of the owner to do that...

We had dinner at the restaurant, in the menu, food and drinks from all Latin America. I chose a dish from Peru and a delicious sangria. If you are in Miami Beach and want to eat Latin food, that's the place!

I have enjoyed the food and the service at this restaurant. I have never been to a Peruvian restaurant before. Seeing that this one had good reviews I decided to give it a try. Very nice selection of appetizers, main dishes and cocktails. The service is friendly and good. I found it weird that gratuity was included in the bill... More

Alas! Whilst I enjoyed the service, having eaten the Argentinian Steak Skirt, I was violently ill for 6 days of our holiday. As such I can't recommend this place. Maybe just bad luck?

Bolivar is a great place. So far, of the many South Beach establishments I have been to, this is the best. The food really is excellent and the staff is personable and professional. Bolivar already ranks close to the top 20 of the almost 1000 restaurant's in Trip Advisor's Miami area. There is a reason for that and that is... More

It was an enjoyable evening spent at this restaurant. What one really should try is their homemade lemonade – yummy! And their tapas - especially Columbian sausage, they have a good deal to choose from. We had tapas first and then the entrée, but some of us said that we should’ve stuck to the tapas, even though I couldn’t complain... More

Ate here on a Saturday night. Reserved a table on TA and had no problem being seated. The server and hostess and all of the employees were very friendly and easy on the eyes. Menu was not that complicated, unlike other South Beach locales and they have a great deal for 7 plates of Tapas for I think $38. Although... More

What a great restaurant with fantastic service and food. Our waiter Tomas was very friendly as was the whole staff. The corn chowder with shrimp was so good and the skirt steak was delicious and cooked to perfection.
