We first visited Bolivar on a tour of restaurants in Miami Beach. Our tapas there, a cornmeal empanada filled with beef and ceviche of whitefish and mango, were so delicious that we returned for the evening meal the next day. Bolivar did not disappoint our party of 4 adults. The menu consists of full meals, salads, sides, and tapas. Everything... More

I'm not so familiar with Colombian and South American food, except for ceviche, empanadas, and arepas. I was here for a late lunch during a weekday, and there were few people there. It looks like it would be a lively place in the evenings, decor is festive and funky. I tried the tamal, expecting a modest portion, it was quite... More

Second time here. The first time left an impression but this time got me hooked! Bolivar has become synonymous with South beach for me. I look forward to eating here with the same enthusiasm that I have for endless hours of lounging on the beach! As happening and fun as south beach can be, its just as easy to go... More

Always wanted to try South American cuisine and this was the closest to our hotel. What a gem! Started with great cocktails that were carefully crafted. Amuse bouche was a great start to try the different sauces. Soup, ceviche and tapas all had wonderful flavor profiles.

I know good food and service, and Bolivar Restaurant and Lounge was definitely outstanding. Wine pairing, service and suggestions by the staff were all above expectations. As a main dish, I ordered a medium Churrasco skirt steak and the cooking was spot on, which shows how much they care about their food. Never ate such good South American cuisine in... More

I started going there when in the old location (two blocks south), and I've tried several dishes and drinks. And I love it! But is not only the food, which is great, is the environment, the service, the music,all the little details. If you are or have Latin roots you will like it and if you are not latin, you... More

I love Colombian food and Bolivar did not disappoint. I loved the intimate, rustic feel of the décor and the location and the service was really special. We ordered the 7 for $48 tapas special and it was very good. There was a really good selection and quite a few options for the health conscious as well. The wine selection... More

We had such a great experience at another Colombian restaurant nearby, so we wanted to get Colombian food again on our last night. Here, we ordered some of the signature cocktails, a few appetizers, as well as a few main dishes. We were even able to order Pisco Sours, a drink I haven't had since I was in Peru. The... More
