Three tables adjacent to us were celebrating their bday - same as mine! And my personalized dessert plate was drizzled with chocolate ribbons in script for Happy Birthday.

Rave reviews are well deserved. As "supreme" foodies, we even look at the online menu in advance to narrow our choices to the best options. You'll come for the ceviche, unique and indescribably optimal in igniting your taste buds! Fire & Ice, a must.

Other recommendations are to be trusted: dessert cigar and lime pie. Watermelon mojito.

We search for unusual flavors -- we'll skip the rack of lamb in favor of the baked red snapper, worth the trip. First stop next Miami trip!

Ola is a fantastic restaurant featuring cuisines from Latin America. The menu starts with several types of ceviche --we tried the wahoo over watermelon and the mixed ceviche. The small plates we tried included the foie gras empanadas and smoked marlin tacos which were both excellent. For an entree we had the tuna. There are so many interesting items that we will return for further research.

The staff was attentive and helpful, and the weather was perfect for dining on the terrace. Great restaurant.

I have been to Ola three times now, and each meal has been spectacular. Twice before I went with my husband. This past visit my colleague and I booked for a large work-related dinner. The service was outstanding - our wait staff attended to our every need, offered great recommendations, and made sure that the meal was paced well (hard to do with a large group). The food - especially the ceviche - is really, really, really good. I tried a lot of the dishes and each one was super tasty. Drinks were excellent, great wine list. Desserts were phenomenal.

Ola has a great Miami vibe - fun and festive but not over the top. Highly recommended!

Went to high hopes... Drinks were lethal.. Way too strong ! The highlight of the night was the ceviche! Super! The waiter seemed to forget us as we were a party of two , our meal was lost in the shuffle and so was the waiter... When it finally arrived our waiter tried to make small talk to hide the fact the food took forever. The steak was way too salty.., perhaps staff training needed

My husband has celiac (allergic to gluten) and the waiter was wonderful in making recommendations. The bread is gluten free and deliciously moist with a hint of sweetness. Our groups selections included the Lobster Ceviche which comes with a light marinade and robust flavors so every bite has a wonderful flavor; the Cuban Pork which was very tender with excellent flavor (my husband said it was the best gluten free dish he's ever eaten at a restaurant); and the New York strip again was excellent. We ate on the terrace under the awning and were not affected by the light rain. However, not all the terrace is covered so check out the weather before sitting on the open terrace. You simply must eat here!!
