    Been here many times great service. Ceviche was great must have the Fire and Ice. Lobster empanadas has wonderful squid ink dough. Fried oysters with fufu a must! Don't forget desert da bomb.

    Amazing atmosphere, service, and food. You HAVE to try their ceviche and mojitos! Also cuatro leches cake with passion fruit ice cream will change your life.

    The food & service here is amazing. 2 glasses of Cava to start. Pair with Fire & Ice cerviche, marlin tacos and the short rib empanadas. You've already won. Choose whatever Entreè sounds good.

    Came just for dessert but ended up getting the lobster ceviche and fried rock shrimp (chicharrones - not fried pork tho!) all flavorful and delicious, lobster a bit chewy. Service was perfection!

    A great restaurant to experience modern Cuban food. Highly recommend the ceviche, and the salmon fillet was incredible!

    The menu is similar to past OLA incarnations (the restaurant has moved around some) -- a concise framework of 12 small plates ($13 to $19), eight ceviches (most $16). Read more

    OLA in Miami is to die for. The ceviches, the cocktails, the actual entrees. It's romantic and chic and like such a classic in this town.

    Just had appetizers here - all excellent recommendations. Pricy, but sat outside with another couple and had a great time in this atmosphere.

    Go with a group so that you can sample as many small plates as possible. Favorites are the short rib empanadas, fire and ice ceviche and smoked marlin tacos. Still hungry? Deconstructed key lime pie.

    Trust your waiter's recommendations. Fois-Gras Empanadas: extravagant, but worth it! For a cocktail, they make the best Pisco Sour.
