The Service here is abominable. Now, service in Miami is bad, but The Island Bistro just takes it to a whole new level. We were seated and the hostess was nice as was our waitress at first. The busboy came to give us water and spilled water all over my menu. The menu is made of paper so it began... More

Our son recently got married in Miami, and The Island Bistro was the perfect choice for brunch the morning after. The management kindly catered to our needs almost to perfection, and our guests had a wonderful time and a superb meal. Thank you!

We live in Brickell Key and have been coming to Fabien's for a few months now. My fiancé and I consider it our once a week spot go to during the weekday. Really great food - definitely doesn't disappoint and the fact that it's walking distance makes us love it even more. I'm not sure that if I didn't live... More

Had a nice lunch with a colleague here. Ambience is cute. Outdoor area is very nice to be seated. Had the goat cheese salad....very delicious and fresh. We also had the endive salad with shrimp...also excellent. Service is good. They have an extensive menu with good prices. Overall, I would return!

Convenient location, excellent, flavorful food, very attentive staff. Wine list (although very small pitch font) was sufficient from which we selected an excellent rioja. Great outdoor ambiance, interesting and comfortable contemporary decor. Loved the endive salad with walnuts as a starter, and our entrees were tasty and well presented. Only complaints were that portion sizes were a little too big... More
