Just steps from the Ritz Carlton South Beach, we found Ola to be one of the best dining experiences in South Beach after two trips there. The service, ambiance and food were the highlight of our trip. Not one for special cocktails (straight & neat...More

We've been to Ola for dinner [make reservation]. They're specialized in latin american food and the dishes were good - not excellent. Service is really attentive, atmosphere is nice and romantic and wine list is decent. But the prices are high - considering that everything...More

Amazing food with ample portions and incredible service! I came expecting great food based on the reviews, but few talked about the substantial portion size (especially compared to most fine dining). Our server Julie was a delight! Highly informed about the food and the perfect...More

We were staying at the Ritz and our concierge recommended this great restaurant. Its a short walk from the hotel, a few blocks, and it was worth it. We had great service and was able to find a nice table outside on a Saturday night....More

Some of the best ceviche I have ever had. Service is a little slow and restrooms let the restaurant down- it had rained and you walk through a courtyard which was slippy. Pork main was good as was the empanadas.

Wonderful dinner at Ola, sitting on the lovely outdoor patio. The server was friendly and helpful with recommendations, and we had a nice, leisurely dinner with absolutely no rushing or pushing along. Food and cocktails were delicious.

Disappointingly small and warm. The menu is limited but food quality is excellent. Good service. Seems overrated at top of the list for Miami Beach dining.

I would say yes. I wore summer pants and nice shirt with flip flops. My husband wore shorts untucked button down shirt and boat shoes.
Looking forward to dining at Ola next Tuesday...do I need to wear a sports jacket or is just a long sleeved collared shirt fine?

Agree with all the others and a long sleeve collared shirt is fine. But I believe it's always good to look your best so a sports jacket or a nice leather blouson will surely be appreciated by your other half and the the... More
