Beyond the hustle and bustle of South Beach Gibraltar offers a lavish setting with gorgeous Biscayne Bay views that are punctuated by the glittering Miami skyline. Gibraltar’s setting alone is enough to knock your socks off, with seating either inside the intimate and elegant dining room or on the outdoor terrace, adorned with gauzy curtains and candlelight. Of course, the ambiance sets the mood, but Gibraltar’s crowning feature is its cuisine. Executive Chef Gerd Richter adds his signature style to each entrée by utilizing the best of local seafood and produce that complements the seasons. Whether enjoying a Lavish Dinner to “Popping the Big Question”, Gibraltar is the perfect location, providing intimate, four-star dining experiences with remarkable service.

    The view is great, and service was good. My dinner was fine, but my wife's was a seafood special and was badly overcooked - tough! After complaining, was brought a piece of salmon - it wasn't too good either, but by that time we just finished and left.

    We arrived on a chilly evening to this hotel restaurant which appeared to be upscale however greeted by two very young hostesses wearing hoodies. After being seated we had to ask for drinks. I need to add the restaurant was almost empty. We finally got one and ordered an app. The waiter took our dinner order of a whole chicken to share. We got a half chicken and he placed it in front of me. We looked at each other in total confusion. After several minutes my husband snagged another waiter who said it was a whole chicken however we've never seen one without legs and wings! And, why was it placed in front of me?? We asked for the manager who actually laughed and didn't offer a solution. Well we did; we walked out and will never return.

    The food was delicious - jumbo shrimp with pasta and the steak with vegetables were perfectly prepared and presented. Sit outside overlooking the bay. Don't forget dessert, the brownie banana sundae is amazing! Then sit by the fire pit with an after dinner drink for the perfect evening. It surpassed my expectations.

    The localization of the restaurant was the only positive experience we had. The food is overpriced, the two red "house wine" glasses were not even moderately priced. The portions served were small and the service was poor (even though the waitress was friendly and knowledgable). It was a big dissapointment. Will never go back.

    Found this restaurant on the Miami Spice website. The restaurant was beautiful and the food was good, but very pricey for what was served. The wait staff was friendly, but slow in recognizing out needs. For example. we ordered dessert and coffee and had the dessert served in just a couple of minutes and then had to wait more than 5 minutes for the coffee. I am glad we tried it, but probably won't be back.

    This restaurant is a must if you want to enjoy a relaxed meal with a great view. No wonder it shows up as one of the most recommended. I took my three children (teens to young a adult) and we had a wonderful brunch. The waiter was very professional and friendly. Thank you for a great afternoon. We will be back.

    Relatively new chef and new menu. All four of us liked our food very much. Menu divided into appetizers, small plates and larger plates, with plenty of varied dishes to choose from. My salmon was perfectly cooked. The salads were very tasty. And the view of Biscayne Bay was extraordinarily beautiful.

    The food was pretty good. Nothing over the top ,but overall it was good.The server vas very nice. Although I wish he would have remember certain details more. We were celebrating a bday and I told him I wish to sing happy birthday at the end of dinner.I believe he forgot until the end that we were talking about it and I guess it reminded him that we were there for a special occasion.He was nice though. The view seemed more pretty on picture than in the actual place. It has a nice view but not as I expected. Overall I had a good time. Would I go back? Maybe not. I didn't have a bad experience, but it's not one of those restaurants that leaves me wanting more!

    We were the only customer there for lunch. The waiter didn't speak English well, I guess I should've expected that being in Miami. The food was ok and certainly over price. To top it all, they charged $8 for valet on a weekday lunch which I found outrageous. Only the view was great.

    Location on the water is excellent and worth the trip, but must sit outside and ideally on closest lower level to the water. Food was well prepared and not overly large portions and was Mediterranean influenced. Best things we had included meze starter and fish was generally cooked spot on. Annoyances included: loud guitar player on the evening (ruined an otherwise great ambince), dog sitting with young family and $8 parking fee from hotel. These are all correctable and should be, for restaurant is in great location and we would have on our list to return to in the future.m

    My husband and I didn't know what to expect when we arrived at Gibraltar but we were BLOWN away. We were given a table that literally overlooked the marina. The sky was so clear and the water so calm it was like being on our own little island for 2 hours. The service was superior and the food was very good. It is a bit pricey, but I would highly recommend for that special occasion.

    Dinner was excellent! We went during the week for my boyfriend's birthday. Unfortunately, we were unable to be seated outside due to the weather, so we were seated inside. Within a few minutes however, the waiter moved us to a window seat that became available. It was not crowded as it was a weekday. Carlos, our waiter, was exceptional. Very jovial and polite. He made us feel very comfortable.

If not, the indoor tables near the windows offer beautiful views. If you have a special occasion to celebrate or just want a memorable dinner out with friends you should try Gibraltar.
