All in all it was nice
It was great the staff was friendly the food was amazing the only complaint I could've had was a little too much bugs on the outside tables and the one to the right was a little wobbly maybe a new table

SHOULD BE,BUT GLAD IT'S NOT POPULAR
The staff leading up to the restaraunt needs to be traded in, but the staff at the Gibraltar were sweet.Tasty food. They wrote "Happy Anniversary" in chocolate on my dessert plate :-)! Bill exceded $200 - which was fine w/ me b/c of the occassion. PORTIONS ARE SMALL(which I expected through experiences in fine dining)& the tip IS included. Good music. Other guests were dressed casual :-P. QUIET! I felt like I had to whisper. I reserved the table closest to the water but since it rained, I wasn't allowed to sit there - which worked out b/c from up close it just looked like a plastic backyard table/chairs.Water was the only ambiance (the far away buildings were ugly).Thankfully,the view from my table was just fine. Go w/ a date at least once.

Absolutely loved the experience. The food and staff were wonderful. Kudos to Delius, Christian and the rest for making our special stay at Grove Isle even more special.

pricey but great
If you are looking for a romantic/outdoor/special occassion type of restaurant, this is the place for you! However, it is no cheap...so this is something to keep in mind

Very romantic and beautiful view
My husband and I spent our wedding anniversary at Gibraltar. The bar had a variety of wines and beers. At dinner we were right in front of the bay, very romantic and excellent service. Definitely we will return

We had dinner with friends
We had dinner with friends at this restaurant, located snide the Grove Isle hotel, in an exclusive Island near Coconut Grove. The food was very good and the service excellent. We went on a Friday and it wasn't too busy so the noise level was very acceptable. We will go back.

We enjoyed our meal very much. The service was excellent. We are very happy we tried Gibraltar and will definitely eat there in the future.

A nice Sunday brunch
Good selection of well-preared foods and pleasant staff in general (hostess was snooty, but this is Miami so I guess that's normal)
Waitstaff took great care of us so the 20% gratuity tagged to the bill was fine. Eat on the patio, it's beautiful. Inside was a bit too echoey.

Best meal of my life
For appetizer we split a lobster bisque which is the best I've ever had. It had huge pieces of lobster and slices of manchego cheese which melted in your mouth. I had the fillet mignon which was delicious and my husband had a seafood plate, he had to breath twice to be able to finish. I had included in the reservation that it was his birthday and they brought him a plate with his favorite dessert and a birthday card which I found it to be a beautiful touch. The music was perfect and extremely relaxing and the ambience was very romantic.. This is definitely a restaurant I would recommend to all my friends and would love to go back... If you are planning to have at least one drink pp, then be ready to pay $70-$90 pp but its totally worth it.
5/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
It was an excellent experience overall. Definitely will be back again. This is my new get-away place. Everything is so nice and calm.
5/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Best food in town! Love the ambience of indoor sitting area; breakfast outdoors in the morning was a wonderful relaxing experience, best eggs Benedict ever!! Waiting staff outstanding
5/31/2013 4:00:00 PM
Although pricey ($70 per person with tax/tip), it is definitely worth to have a delicious brunch with plenty of variety and the views are awesome. We sat outside and they turned on the fans so that we would have a pleasant breeze. They kept the mimosa's flowing. The four of us tried a little of everything. By far my favorite were the succulent shrimp and the strawberry, blueberry, chocolate crepes of which I had two ;)

Great view and ambience
For those that did not know, this used to be Baleen. Has waterview from inside and outside seating if you prefer to be outdoors. The food was delicious with a decent wine list and the service was good. The menu is a bit pricey but it's expected for the location. Entree portions were decent but the appetizers are small. The spread that comes with the bread is incredible.
6/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Three of us ate here to celebrate f friend's birthday and it was delicious. Service was a little slow but we were not in a hurry.
We shared a crab cake to begin with, $16 for an appetizer and got one bite each so it's pricey but very tasty. For the main courses we ordered three different entrees and again shared them, the fish, the shrimp and pasta and the lamb. All were delicious and we did not have room for dessert! Wine was also good and it's happy hour at the bar up until 7 p.m. with BOGO! Highly recommended and a great view to boot. If you sit outside, wear mosquito repellent.
6/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
My food was great and delicious, the presentation of the platters very neat , The timing between platters a little long, . I was a little disappointing because on the website when you click the Galleria it shows a lot of platters they don't actually have on their Menu. so I recommend to update your website. Overall it was great. Thanks.
6/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wonderful Dining Experience!
We sat outside on and it was wonderful, romantic and absolutely breathtaking. The service was superb and the food divine. Highly recommend Gibraltar. Weather allowing sit outside...
6/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
We have eaten here multiple times... be aware, service is slow.. but on purpose. You can spend a good 2 hours just staring at the view. They have a decent buffet although some of the options are a little odd for brunch (pad thai noodles right next to tortellini)... dessert for the buffet looks better than it tastes. You really pay for the experience, not so much the food.
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
I am so pleased with this restaurant the evening was perfect .The staff was more than professional and went above and beyond to make it a very special evening.I loved the food the ambiance and the the wait staff. I highly recommend to anyone looking for good quality food at a fair price.We had outside dining and it was amazing go you wont be dissapointed
6/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Based on a friend's recommendation, I booked a reservation to celebrate my fiancee's birthday. We were both so pleased with the ambience, food and service. Can't afford to dine at Gibraltar on a regular basis, but it worth every cent. My fiancee said she felt like a queen and I earned bonus points. Can't wait to get back there again.
6/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
My husband and i were celebrating
My husband and i were celebrating our one year anniversary and this was the place. .. wow what a night, the food was amazing and the view was to die for.
6/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
We enjoyed our dinner at Gibraltar the other night. It was a beautiful setting and a wonderful spot to watch the fireworks. The food was delicious. We would definitely make reservations another time.

Miami's Hidden Gem
This is by far the best restaurant I have ever been to. The ambiance, the view, the service, the food. Everything was just perfect.

Breath Taking Experience
This was the most romantic place I have ever taken a woman. I got points just because it was my suggestion and the unforgetable evening that transpired. If you are ever in South Beach - its' a must do!
7/8/2013 5:00:00 PM
A Perfect Night
Despite it raining, our dinner at Gibraltar was excellent. The food was amazing as was the service. Highly recommended
7/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome overall experience
Awesome overall experience from the wait staff to the quality of the food.
7/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great romantic experience
Good food and excellent service. Brian, our server, was phenomenal. We took a table outside right by the ocean, it is a quiet, romantic restaurant, would go again.
7/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
The place to impress
When you have a special person that you hope to show how much you care about them, then take them to Gibraltar. - Dominica, the hostess all the way to Yacy the waitress made the whole experience the best ever ... the food was all really good and it made us feel we were on vacation- even though we live in Miami.
Just can't say enough about the Gibraltar experience!
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
I've been to your restaurant in several occassions so I requested outside sitting secluded from the rest I wanted the big table since
I was bringing my daughter and boyfriend however the hosted was not very accomadating to my wants, also I ask if they can move the fan just little because of the mosquito situation, but again ignored.
The food is always very good however my daughter ordered the filet mignon and it wasnt as good as I was expecting.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
I never heard of this restaurant before Travelzoo offered the special on their website. But, I must say that it was exquisite. I loved it and will be back!
7/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of Miami's best waterfront restaurants. We sat outside with a full view of a full moon. The service and the food was outstanding.
7/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went last night, for the first time, for an early birthday dinner for my boyfriend and we simply fell in love with the place! Amazing food, great service and the perfect scenic, romantic setting with gorgeous views. Would absolutely recommend and come back!

Great Choice for a Special Evening
Gibralter is the perfect place to take someone out for a special evening. The view was gorgeous, and the intimate tables set into the side of the hill overlooking the water make for a really special dining experience. Everything was delicious, and the restaurant threw in a little dessert trio for my husband’s birthday. The wait staff and bartender were all very professional and attentive. I was using a travelzoo voucher for the dinner, and the waiter was very flexible with how we used the voucher so we were able to maximize the value and get the items we really wanted to enjoy. Overall our special evening a Gibralter was wonderful, and I would definitely recommend it for any special occasion.
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was the most breath taking
This was the most breath taking dining exsperience ever.We had a private table for two over looking the ocean, super romantic.I would definitely go back to this restaurant.
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
I love the ambiance of the place. the candle lights, quiet, the water view and the treatment from everybody.
The food has a very special touch and taste, I liked it.

Wonderful Anniversary Dinner!
I can't say enough about our wonderful anniversary dinner at Gibraltar. The food was fantastic and our server did an excellent job. If the weather is nice sit outside. 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.
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
My new favorite place!!!!
Celebrated our anniversary there! It was beautiful, and the good and service was great!!
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I have known each other since 1997, we've been together since 2007, so I was looking for something new, a change of scenery, and Gibraltar was the perfect place. I found the place on the MiamiSpice website.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
really like this restaurant , staff was excellent , food was delicious , they won't rush you at all between plates , nice view of the waterways .
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
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.
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect environment for that special date. Outdoor tables looking over the water while tiki torch caste just the right light.
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Made an impression !!
Great views and excellent food...... I will definitely return with friends.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
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.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing views, great service and wonderful wine and food. Very romantic setting.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I were in Miami for our honeymoon and stayed at the grove isle hotel and spa, the resturant was attached to the hotel, we had a wonderful dinner and the service was excellent!
9/23/2013 5:00:00 PM
I have been to a lot of restaurants and this by far is one my favorite. Foor was amazing, scenery was amazing, service was amazing, over it was amazing. Would definitely recommend it for any occasion! We went during Miami spice and I would go back not on a Miami spice.
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
A must add to your list.
This is a great all around dining expearience.....I had a good group of people with me and everyone loved it. I only have one negative comment and it's on the parking costs. Since I invited everyone, I felt obligated to cover all the parking which to me was excessive.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent staff, first class. Drove all the way from Broward left rewarded
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
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!
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Loved this restaurant
We were seated at our own private table on a terrace overlooking the water; The service was great and
the food was amazing.
