    We went for early dinner on a Sunday, my wife, daughter and I. Found the references at OT. There some warnings about the temperature outside so I reserved for inside. Once there it was no brainer, outside is the place to be, whenever it's not too hot as it was. View is fantastic, the Bayshore from Grove Key. Very honest food. We selected the Miami Spice menu which was very decent. Prices a little but in the high side but it was well spent.

    I took my wife for her birthday and we're super impressed with the whole experience. The food was amazing, my wife tried the mahi, and I had the best ribeye I have ever eaten. That says a lot because I'm 37 and I've tried a lot do steak over the years. Worth every penny, I'll definitely will return! :)

    The place is beautiful with an ocean side view that was spectacular. We had the Miami Spice menu and really enjoyed it all. The drinks were awesome, the appetizers were incredible and the main courses were great and even the desserts were memorable. The tab included 20% gratuity which was odd for a bill for two but it did merit the 20% because all was wonderful. They have valet parking and you can walk the grounds or sit by the fire pits by the water and very scenic - bring your cameras!!!

    We had a reservation. When we got there the hostess told us the inside had been reserved and only outside dining was open. It was 94 degrees. Before I said a word, she said, "we notified you!". When I told her that did not happen, she repeated adamantly in a "Moose out front shoulda told you" tone that we had been called. Our waiter insisted on taking our order immediately to beat the order of the party inside, and promised he could still space our courses out. No.....apps, salad and entrees came on top of each other. We ran out of water several times. Did I mention 94 degrees? Paid waaaay too much for this experience. View was beautiful.

    Light breeze and a perfect scenic view created that perfect evening. The food was a bit on the light side, but good. The catch of the day was excellent! But the 20% service charge caught me by surprise ... maybe it is related to the island location? I've never seen this before.

    Dined on 8/20/2014
    Outside of being a decent date spot, the place is a bit overrated (as some of the Yelp reviews suggested). Great ambiance & food was ok (a little salty & certainly nothing to write home about). There are plenty of restaurants that are making a name for themselves in the Miami area that outperform this restaurant on just about every level, & at a fraction of the price. The "cherry on top" for me was the automatically included 20% tip. Don't get me wrong, having worked in the industry myself, I wholeheartedly understand the reasoning behind it. Typically, I'll tip 20+, if it's warranted. However, there was no way that the server earned any real respectable tip. Normally, I would've brought this to the manager's attention, but I let it go.

    The best place for a date. The ambience is awesome and the service is great. Menu is very good and the food is ok. My mahi was very good cook, tender but kind of flavorless. The creole cash of the day was delicious. they need a signature cocktel menu to enchance the experience. Great place.

    We had a wonderful evening at Gibralter celebrating two birthdays. The setting was lovely, overlooking Biscayne Bay, and the dinner was delicious. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect dining experience. The cookie dessert for two was outstanding and the presentaion of each course was a treat.

    Went to Gibraltar's in Coconut Grove Saturday night. Came across this place under "Best restaurants in Coconut Grove web search". The restaurant is in a great location over looking the bay. The inside of the restaurant reminded me of a dining hall, little ambiance at all. Disappointing! Very bare inside. The view however is very good outside.... Food was very good!! We had the Piaya special and it was wonderful. GiGi our waitress was very good and very helpful. The service staff however seemed like they were new. No rhythm in timing for service?? So in closing, food is very good, service ok, ambiance inside not good.

    We were in Miami in low season and it was easy to get a table right at the water' edge on a little wooden platform within a garden setting- perfect. The food could have been anything and we would have enjoyed it! But the food was excellent, beautifully presented and the kitchen/ waiter worked with me to create an excellent vegetarian/ gluten free option. The waiter was attentive and friendly without being invasive. Only caution-we had to wait for 40 minutes for a taxi and a group in front of us had already been waiting an hour. We ended up sharing a taxi when it finally showed.

    I just proposed while having a relaxing dinner by the sea at Gibraltar. It was a great experience. I have not words to describe how helpful everyone was there. Jose was fun to interact with and extremely courteous serving. The food was also delicious. The live music and scenic view was a 10/10. I really appreciate the consideration by the management of this restaurant as I had a few unique requests. Would recommend this place... and happy she said: "yes" ;)

He suggested a great bottle of wine that was reasonable ($70) and yet exquisite. The outdoor sitting overlooking the bay was magnificent. I would highly recommend this place for any couple.

    Just what I was looking for, Wanted a nice, quiet, romantic setting to celebrate my girls bday and I have to say I couldn't have been happier, my only complaint is that it was too hot to sit outside, which was fine because they have a nice dinning room with floor to ceiling windows , I have been working in restaurants for over 15 years and this place is at the top of my list, real nice without being too fancy or stuffy , excellent ambiance , great food. expect to spend a little bit but you will be happy!

    Been going to this property since it was Baleen's, The atmosphere/view is priceless...it needs to be because the food was very mediocre. The salad bar was adequate, though the selection of breads was stale and soggy and felt like it was 2 days old from Publix. The carving station had skirt steak which was decent, and some very fatty pork, with more fat than meat. The chicken was very dried out at the hot food station. The shrimp cocktail was good but the bagels and lox very mediocre. The desserts were good tho the selection was limited. The view as always was great as was the service...and the Mimosas were never empty and plentiful. In summary, spend the $50 at Gibraltar just for the view and drinks, but go to IHOP first for better food.

    The food was just so-so but the prices were high. On top of that, they tacked on a 20% tip to the bill. The outside table we got by the water was totally dark. I had to use my cell phone to see my food. The steak was too peppery and full of fat. Very little meat on it. There was a very loud band playing (a private party, perhaps) This is my last visit to this restaurant.

    I have been here for dinner before and thought the quality of Easter brunch would be comparable. I was mistaken. Although there were a few good choices the majority of the seafood was not fresh. Even the color of the fish was dark (old). The oysters were also old. I was so looking forward to some good oysters. I saw that they had Alaskan King crab and couldn't wait to try them. They ran out before I had the chance. Never again will I go here for brunch. Makes me wonder if the quality of dinner has gone down hill. Haven't been here in a couple of years.
