Above average experience

When we arrived we were seated promptly. Comfortable spacing at the table for 9 in our party. Wait staff was efficient but not inclined to depict a smiling happy demeanor, not surly but just efficient. 9 different meals ordered, can only speak for 1 but it was cooked properly and in sufficient... read more

Went there last week and the waiter really ruined our meal. he was too preoccuoied in taking care of the drinkers at the next table and left us to the busboys. The pasta fagioli seemed like it came out of a can with water added, really bad, and the bolognese was average at best. Will not be back.

Not Good! We were very excited when we walked in as waiters buzzed throughout the restaurant. We were seated in the middle of a walkway and had waiters bumping into our table all night. We ordered a bottle of wine. The waiter came back a few minutes later and informed us that they did not have that bottle. He gave... More

I cannot over-emphasize how pleasant our entire dining experience was at Il Gabbiano. It is located near the water, with a terrific view. There is a large outdoor dining patio as well as elegant tables indoors. When we were seated, there was an immediate flurry of activity around us: water, bread, olive oil, salumeria, olives, etc. We were greeted by... More

We had heard high praise for this restaurant so we were very much looking forward when friends suggested we go. The table laden with fresh veggies, wine and lemons near the entrance made us think we'd found a winner. Alas, except for the delicious bruschetta served "on the house" at the beginning of the meal everything else was a disappointment.... More

Just celebrated Valentines Day at my favorite restaurant in Miami. It is so good that despite living in Washington, D.C., I would consider flying there just to have dinner. The restaurant is in a unique location overlooking Biscayne bay and no matter where we sit, we feel like we are on a cruise ship enjoying the wonderful views of the... More

This restaurant was our least favorite on a recent trip to Miami. Simply put, the restaurant is really not a place for couples and really caters to a corporate crowd, usually at larger tables, and who are spending large sums of money on wine and alcohol. If you are a typical couple who each order a glass of wine, a... More

Packed house on a Monday night. Noise level impossible. Don't come here for a quiet evening. Before the menus arrive the waiters bring brushetta, zucchini chips , bread, and thick balsamic. They offer a small sliver of parmigian cheese. In comparison to what they used to give they should just leave it go. If they can't afford a decent size... More
