We have dined at Il Gabbiano a number of times, and it has been uniformly excellent. The place definitely has a buzz on the water in downtown Miami; very convenient in particular if you are there at a business conference with all the nearby hotels, including the Mandarin Oriental. You can dine outside or inside; lunch or dinner except Sundays.... More

The restaurant is located in the business district quite a long distance from Miami Beach - so you need to be prepared for a bit of a drive if you travel from Miami Beach. The place had a lot of energy and vibe - and was clearly one of the best to go to spot in Miami. The service was... More

The place is located at the One Miami, in downtown. If you Seat on the external area you'll get a spectacular of the bay. The food is delicious (not to mention the couvert...) and service is very good. Waiters were all super kind and helpful. I had the lobster ravioli and it was really good! (they have some "special dishes"... More

The food is excellent and the view is very romantic, it can get a little crowded sometimes. Great place for couples night.

Only in Miami? Bland food with a view and without a local in sight. Don't be ripped off, go across the bridge and go to Truluck's! Or many others in walk distance.

We have been to Il Gabbiano many times in the past for special occasions and every other time had a wonderful time. So for my mother's 87th birthday we made a reservation for a special family celebration. We had a reservation for 9 pm and were not seated until 10:30! No apology, it was chaos! Clearly they had overbooked. Once... More

We went here for our first meal in Miami. Very busy restaurant on a Wednesday evening however it did not seem to faze the staff. We came in 20 min late for our reservation so we had to wait at the bar until another table opened. There we were served complimentary zuchini fritters which was nice to have with the... More

Had a business dinner with a party of 10 and many different dishes were ordered. Most of us were not impressed. Overall most dishes lacked of the creativity, taste and balance of a fine restaurant. And my risotto was overcooked. Service was OK but nothing special. There might be better options for Italian fine dinning within the same district.
