My husband and I took a trip to Miami and had the pleasure of eating here. Out of all of the Cuban restaurants we ate at in Miami, this place was the most flavorful and the most memorable. I couldn't give them a 5 rating as they got my order wrong and the cook was not going to fix another... More

I thought this place was OK, but considering the stellar ratings on TripAdvisor and Yelp I expected it to be better. The appetizers came out quickly and while tasty, were overly saturated in oil that seemed to not have been changed in a while. Our fries with our steak were inedible as they too were fried in the same oil... More

The variety of cultures and the fact they provide the origin of each dish next to each item on the menu make this place a must stop if you're looking to experiment with multiple cultures in one sitting. The place is very dimly lit featuring loud Latino music that the staff sing and dance to as they progress through their... More

Had an amazing dinner at Bolivar on a Tuesday evening. We eat early for Miami, but there was still a decent crowd when we dined. Started out with some great cocktails, and everyone was pleased with their meals. The menu lets you know the origin of each dish, from various South American countries. Kudos also on menu presentation. The wine... More

We were warmly greeted on arrival and our waiter Tomas was excellent. He made great recommendations which we mostly followed. I ate a traditional Columbian dish whilst my wife had a Venezuelan seafood dish and my son enjoyed Tapas. Beer and wine from Argentina rounded off a great culinary tour of South America. Highly recommended.

The Bolivar Restaurant and Lounge is super nice. It has kind of a Gothic and Folkloric type of style. The food menu is extensive so is the drinks menu. The food is delicious, especially the Chicken Soup. They play Latin music and have a bar area. The service is great! It's great for families and friends. The atmosphere is very... More
