The many ceviches offered were scrumptious as was everything else on the menu. The staff is incredible and are all credited on the menu...something I have never seen before. I spilled a glass of wine on myself and the staff swooped in to clean up everything within seconds, including a new chair, new meal and new glass of wine. It's... More

Ola is a great place to have a nice dinner in SoBe. It's off the main drag and very quiet. We had dinner on the patio which was amazingly not buggy at all. The service was very attentive - almost too attentive as they tried to whisk away empty plates/glasses so quickly they nearly took an unfinished beer. Apps were... More

Best ceviche I have ever eaten. Well prepared and well presented. Dinner was also fabulous. Save room for dessert and you will nor be disappointed. Service was top notch. Would love to come back again and again, but it was expensive. Worth every penny, but still expensive.

Our concierge recommended this restaurant...we are so happy! We decided to dine al fresco though tempted by the beautiful inside ambiance. Ola has managed to make their outside patio peaceful and beautiful even though they are located on James Ave. We started with Kobe meatballs and the waiters kept bringing us their homemade yucca & cheese rolls so we could...

The concierge at my hotel was raving about Ola. I always take what they say with grain of salt thinking that they are getting free meal from time to time for driving hoards of travelers to their picks. Oh contraire! After the whole of the concierge staff said that this restaurant was a must we went on our last night... More

My mom and I were on vacation together and we like to keep things loose. A lot of times when we walk into restaurants without a reservation in Miami there's a lot of attitude from the hostess (give me a break ok). Anyway our concierge at the Shore Club Hotel (that place rocks btw) suggested OLA after we told him... More
