    The food was good and fresh and well-prepared. The menu was creative and included some items that were very unique, like a delicious asparagus soup with a touch of truffle oil and some really wonderfully prepared escargot. I would definitely return to this restaurant and can see why it is quite a good find for Brickell Key..

    It's a real treat dining on quiet Brickell Key, and Fabien's has wonderful, unpretentious food leaning toward French, plus friendly, capable service. The interior is contemporary and very attractive, although we prefer the outdoor terrace, which is quiet and romantically lit. If you're not familiar with where to park, ask the attendant in the gatehouse as you enter the island.

    If you like Foie Gras, this is the place to go. Excellent food and excellent wine list. Deserts are nothing special. I would have expected at least a Grand Marnier souflé or a Crepe Souflé like BLT on SOBE. This restaurant can definitely compete against the other SOBE Steak houses. The lighting is however directed right into the clients eyes which is uncomfortable. Restaurant decor is very nice except for the white walls and ceiling (Burgundy comes to mind). The art works are very nice as well as the curved brick wall in the back.

    I am very happy this restaurant is here. We needed a nice bar and food scene here at the island. The food was amazing. The chef stepped out and greeted us which was very personable. My wife insisted on complimenting his seafood linguini. We had a wonderful night and were not rushed as we enjoyed our bottle of wine. Oh and to those who live on the isalnd, there is delivery. Imagine that.

    I stopped by because the outdoor patio is usually filled with people dining. This caught my attention so I enjoyed a Wednesday night meal by the bar with my friend. The food is remarkable . I most definitely recommend the coq au vin entree. The staff is very personable, and our waiter was knowledgeable, which is rare in Miami. Sure enough , I ordered take out on Saturday night. I'l efinitely be back.

    I do miss Brasserie, but Fabien's is a wonderful replacement. The food is amazing. I have tried the grilled Mahi Mahi and Filet Mignon and both dishes were presentable and delicious. We ordered a bottle of wine, as they have a very notable wine list and sat outside because it has a peaceful view of Brickell Key's wonderful neighborhood. I recommend this to anyone who lives on the island especially. The service was very prompt as well and not overbearing. Did not try any appetizers. Overall, nice new spot.
