Whether enjoying a Lavish Dinner to “Popping the Big Question”, Gibraltar is the perfect location, providing intimate, four-star dining experiences with remarkable service. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "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."

We came during Miami Spice and it wasnt packed at all. Our server Jose was very informative on the wine selection and suggestions on the menu, overall great experience here and would come back."

  • "Great find through Miami Spice and worth the experience at the price-would consider a getaway to the hotel and spa. Not sure I could validate the regular prices on the menu, but the location and view are priceless!"

  • "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."

  • "Prices are so high for this kind of food. A 20% tip is included in your check but the service is really poor. They should have to review this policy because it is not fair discuss the service charge when you receive the check and you are with your friends..... "

  • "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! I know we were. "

  • "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."

  • "After making reservations four days in advance, I arrived at the restaurant and was told by the greeter (state not very friendly) that my requested/desired outside table was not available. I requested to speak with the manager and the manger apologized and stated that she would try to accommodate my seating request. Twenty minutes later my guest and I were still waiting in the bar area to be seated. A second request for the manger finally resulted in being seated in the requested seating area. The manger was kind and provided commentary hors d’oeuvre and our waiter was amazing. The food was pricey for the value. I would NOT recommend this restaurant and surely not for a special occasion such as mine – my birthday."

  • "It was an amazing experience. I read reviews online and there were some good and also some bad reviews so I was skeptical about the place but as soon as I got to the restaurant I was loving everything about it. The food was extremely good. The price is good, a little bit expensive but it is not overpriced, It is worthy. The ambience was lovely, we had a table outside and I really like that each table is isolated of the rest of the tables so you have your own spot and it is very intimate and romantic. We will make this our special place, I will definitely recommend it and I will definitely go back."

  • "our food (salads,veggies, entrees, dessert) was very good although a bit on the pricey side. My hubby & I were able to share an entrée since the salads & apps were ordered as well. However even though our server was very nice there were some service lapses I think due to not enough staff. It took a while for our initial drinks to come out which is no fun. I would go back for the food & scenery but think the restaurant needs to brush up on service."

  • "We were the only people in the restaurant for awhile but the bar had many people and the noise from the bar prevented us from having a conversation.Prices were high for entrees but the big apps were priced right."
