“Wow! Loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Booked a reservation for a Monday night after a long day of travel for dinner with work colleagues based on rating in Tripadvisor, and we were not disappointed. Colorful dining room to lift any spirits. Creative cocktail menu to provide interesting refreshful combinations to your tastebuds. The menu proved to be extremely difficult because of too many choices. I have the Black group marinated in teriyaki and sesame. Yum Yum. Two of the party had the double porkchop. Amazing to look at and gigantic. The other roast pork loin. All got rave reviews. Appetizers a little small, but beautiful presenatation and like the cocktails, great explosions of taste. If you are in Coral Cables (or neraby in Miami), Ortanique is a must visit.

“disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

I had high hopes for this Caribbean restaurant. Given the prices, I expected authentic, spicy Caribbean food. Corn and conch fritters and salad were bland and not as presented in the menu. Where was the mango?? They were out of Ahi tuna at 7:00 on a Saturday. House wines were good. The bread was really good. I had the scallops which were good, but with broccoli? Risotto was excellent according to other members of the group. Calamari was overcooked. I just don't understand why this place is so popular.

“Always consistent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Certainly the best restaurant in Coral Gables and has been for years. The vibe is really nice for a local dining spot outside of The Beach or Design District.

“Absolutely Marvelous !!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

Went in for a quick and light lunch, had a meeting to catch afterwards. Very good service, quick efficient and understood. Ordered a potato leek soup, very good, fresh taste, savory and a flash hot taste that made it satisfying, The crab cake distilled exactly how good the place was, unquestionably the best crabcake i have had in Miami over the last five years, or anywhere. Why and how ??
Fresh, fresh, to the smallest detail, and marvelous mixture, with the right spice kick, if they can make the perfect crab cake all the rest is easy. Can't wait to go back, even if I wasn't crazy about the decor.

“Exotic Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

The food in Ortanique is presented in a unique manner. I went when it first opened and it was excellent. However, the last time I went it was not as good.
