I ate dinner and had a wonderful experience. The food, service and venue are excellent. I was in Coral Gables for the evening and as a solo some of the restaurants would not take a reservation. No problem with Ortanique and they were most accommodating.

Yet another delicious evening at Ortanique. Great cocktail,good wine list, and inventive menu that uses your favorite ingredients with a twist of new flavors, usually tropical ones. This place is worth the trip from Brickell.

If I remember correctly, I would say a maximum of 15 people. But the best thing to do is check directly with the restaurant and of course make a reservation. Enjoy!
