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

My wife and I stumbled onto this restaurant our first night in Miami. We were strolling along Washington Ave in South Beach looking for a place to have a drink. A nice little bar with a cool vibe. We sat at the bar and had some great Mojitos. They really know how to make them perfect. 1 turned into like... More

We recently ate here again and the food was just not as good as I had remembered. It is something different and the service is pretty good, but the portions are small and basic. We ate here a couple times over the years and normally went during happy hour so that at least our drinks were at a discount which... More
