Place is hopping. Food was amazing as was the service. A bit on the expensive side. Look out for the dress code or they will not seat you.

The service was excellent and we were allowed to linger and enjoy our friends company without having to rush. The food was nicely prepared. I had the branzzino and it was done correctly. The grilled octopus appetizer... More

Simply put, the best food, service, atmosphere. Not inexpensive but you get what you pay for. I found this restaurant on a trip to Miami in May and was back again in June. I will go back the next time i am in Miami

I have been here many times and it is always perfect. Plain and simple this is an elegant, trendy expensive restaurant and worth every penny! If you can, request to be seated outside for the spectacular view. I cannot imagine a finer restaurant!!!

For those of you complaining about how long it takes, do the rest of us a favor and call for take out...or possibly just go to the local drive thru. For everyone else, if you want to spend some time with friends, family or the one you love relaxing and eating great food, try this place. When you arrive, you... More

This italian restaurant is very romantic. They start by serving the freshest tomatoes, olive oil, bread, cheese to start the night off. The veal parm is to die for. The deserts are a master piece. They come and prepare them infront of you. an absolute must eat at restaurant for anyone who enjoys Italian food.

We celebrated our 25th anniversary here. It was our first time and we were not disappointed at all. We had the most attentive service and the food was unbelievable. It was absolutely worth the expense. And we can't wait to celebrate another occasion at Il Gabbiano.

This is a truly fabulous, five-star restaurant. The service and food are extraordinary. My husband and I had seafood -- his dover sole was to die for and my langoustines were simple but delicious. Every time we go, we amaze ourselves that the price is well worth the quality of the meal and "event". My highest praise is for their... More
