The staff and service was fantastic. The food was some of the best we have ever had in Miami or anyplace in South Florida. Sat inside. I am sure sitting outside and enjoying the view would be spectacular. No it is not inexpensive; however, evry bit of the meal was terriffic! First visit. Will not be the last visit. Thank... More

This is one of my favorites restaurants in Miami. You will not be disappointed. Food is excellent and the service is outstanding. If the weather is nice try to be at the terrace from where you will enjoy a great sea view.

Had a 9:30 reservation. People around us were already waiting 11/2 hours to be seated. Overcrowded, no where to stand. No info from hostess other then soon. Finally I left and will never return. Looking at other reviews this happens all the time we went to Trulucks and had a good dinner

Il Gabbiano is one of my favorite restaurants - in the world. I make a point to visit each time I'm in Miami and it is consistently amazing. The food is absolutely divine. Authentic Italian dishes, prepared with the right amount of sauce, flavor, texture and freshness. The setting is gorgeous - a beautiful restaurant tucked away from the hustle... More

Never have we been in a restaurant where the entire staff takes care of you. The service is outstanding because of this. Our view was beautiful, the food was delicious, owner cooks pasta for you...all in all worth every penny. A dining experience.

Wow just WOW! For me the gauge of an Italian restaurant is the taste a basic spaghetti pomodo- ll Gabbiano rocked the plate. It's got a great location near the Intercontinental Hotel on River Walk with a view over the harbour bay. On the day is was cool in the evening and the gas heaters worked well on the veranda...

The owner cooks the pasta right in front of the whole dining room. Hides nothing. Service is outstanding. Special orders do not upset them. Food is amazing.

We have been here several times, and enjoyed all the dinners. Wonderful downtown location with lovely Bay views. Modern sophisticated interior. We label it an "experience" for a couple of reasons. First, the beauty of the setting. Second, the superb service. Third, the well acclaimed beginning of your meal, with several amuses, including diced very fresh tomato, cheese, and homemade... More

Friends raved about this restaurant. I thought it was "OK." So, the good points are that it has a wonderful view of the water. The food display at the entrance is spectacular. They serve appetizers at no extra charge. The appetizers were a nice chunk of cheese (probably parmigana), tomato salsa, and assorted breads. All, tasty. There was a nice... More
