Good food. Good music. Not exactly the ambiance we were looking for.

We visited Bolivar on a thursday night for my wife's birthday. The food and music lived up to the expectation that we had from all the great reviews we had seen. The Ceviches did not disappoint. We liked the tapas options. All the recommendations from our server were perfect. However, we had... read more

We knew this place from having gone on a viator food tour of Miami and we loved the ceviche. So, we decided to return. They have moved further up Washington avenue to 841. We ordered the ceviche sampler and it was awesome. 6 different types all with delicious marinades and a tray of sauces. We also got the pantacones with... More

It was our last night in Miami Beach and we really wanted something fun and good. We found Bolivar and we weren't disappointed!! We had delicious tapas of chorizo and fried calamari--so tender. And I had the shrimp ceviche. There were loads of shrimp and it was awesome. My husband had a pork, rice and bean dish. Also yummy. There... More

If you love South American culture this is definitely the place to visit. As soon as my boyfriend and I walked into the lounge we new that if was going to be memorable. The place was filled with melodious music by a soloist who engaged and interacted with the guest. The décor was original and the lighting set a romantic... More

For our last night in Miami we decided to dine here. Dimly lit bar/restaurant was full of mostly locals so we felt that was a good sign plus we were greeted with smiles as soon as we walked in. Our waiter César was lovely, really helpful when it came to the drinks and food menu, and just downright charming. There... More

Went to South Beach for a family vacation and decided to try Bolivar after seeing some reviews online. This was my first time trying South American cuisine. Ordered the ceviche shots and they were truly mouth watering, very fresh and flavorful. They also have a variety of cocktail drinks and beers. Great and quiet ambience, just a little bit on... More

I celebrated my birthday at this place in south beach and absolutely loved it. We ordered a killer ceviche, southamerican style seafood and other items that we all agreed were great. They did a wonderful birthday wishes by singing and framing the birthday girl-me! The band was very good and most people were dancing along including me. For all you... More
