My family and I had a Groupon that we used in July, 2013 before we cruised from Miami!. There were 4 of us, myself, my husband, my daughter and her friend. The service was fantastic, the food was delicious and the One man entertainment was fabulous! It was such an enjoyable dining experience! The staff was friendly and patient in their recommendations, the ambiance was enjoyable. It's small, but intimate. Well worth the experience!

Lunch here was shockingly inexpensive for two people at $35! The food was delicious - one of us had the Picanha steak with yucca fries and the other empanadas and black beans. We're snobby and this place gets 2 thumbs up!!!!

We had a late breakfast here.... My scrambled eggs, rice and beans, and arepa were very good. I added the columbian sausage for $2 bringing my meal which included cafe con leche and juice (delicious blackberry) to $12, which was reasonable and all was good quality and tasted good. The part that grossed me and my wife out were the re-used sauces brought out in a crusty tea light tray...the spoons had crusted sauce on them from the previous day and some of the sauces had crusted over and this was stirred in to look "fresh". I'm sorry to say we would probably not waste our time or money on this restaurant again.

Last night we went for dinner at Bolivar. We walked in around 7pm and the place was empty, only another 2 individuals were seated having dinner. Later on it got a little more active. The venue had a promotional video which was about 2 minutes long of their restaurant playing in a loop on their tv's. It got a little tiresome after a while. We were promptly greeted by Luisa who gave us menus, but later came back to exchange them because she had given us lunch menus which fair different prices in comparison to dinner. For example a Bandeja Paisa for lunch is $9.99 and for dinner it's $16 (their website states it as $14). We ordered 3 Colombian empanadas ($7) which came with 4 different sauces. The empanadas were on the small side, had lots of potato and not enough meat. We shared a bandeja paisa ($16) plus you can add chorizo for $2. From my personal experience, a bandeja paisa comes with chorizo at no additional charge. So our entree was up to $18, a little high for a typical Colombian dish even on trendy South Beach. The meal itself was ok and nicely presented. Additionally we ordered a side of Yuca fries ($4) which were good. The restaurant tries to be a little unique and original in presentation. The wine and beer list is inside a wine bottle, the dessert menu is inside a cigar box and your check is brought in a tin box. All these tidbits are poorly done and hence the unique touch is totally lost. Finally the decoration is lack luster, the wall paint is odd and they display artwork throughout the venue and the menu states that they are open to display local artists. Overall, the experience was ok, but pricing was a little high. Service was fair, Luisa never came by to refill our waters even though the place was fairly empty. I don't think I would personally go back for dinner, but maybe a lunch.
