Always a great experience! My favorite place in Miami ♥️
First time here and ………. what a gorgeous place, like I mentioned in the past not many places in Miami or Miami Beach are actually on the water, so whenever I visit one I just love it
This is a beautiful environment, it is on Jungle Island and it overlooks the Deep Harbor Marina and Miami beautiful skyline.
I think the ideal time is to have an early dinner, we had a reservation at 6.15 pm and it was gorgeous as you have the sunset light but then you also get the beautiful city lights when it gets dark.
They had a DJ which had great music, the crowd is hip and trendy but anyone can go, really, I am certainly not that hip and trendy and I loved it ;-) the only thing was the music a bit too loud so it made it hard to have a conversation across the table but, I understand why it is like that.
Food was ok, nothing exceptional but some places you go for the food and, some for the ambiance and the view so, this is definitely one of those, absolutely gorgeous. I have to say the staff was really really great. I will go back again for sure @islandgardensdeck

Ambiente super chic,excelente atención,comida divina,un lugar para siempre volver
we had a party of 5 girls. We had an amazing time. Food was delish and the view outstanding.
The food was delicious the view was irreplaceable stunning and the Music was great will be coming back more often
Wonderful view & food taste really good thanks a lot!.
It is a Beautiful place with wonderful water view but menu is limited and quality of food was horrible. Service was average.
It was overpriced, the food was ok, horrible cocktails
We had dinner here in a Sunday night. The place is trendy without being pretentious. There’s a live DJ & it can be a little loud. We requested a table as far away from the loud music as possible & were able to have a pleasant conversation. The service was attentive. The food much better than expected. Octopus, truffle pizza & branzino were delicious! I was concerned when I went to the ladies room. It’s tucked away very far behind the restaurant & felt unsafe, like any random person could grab you back there & no one would notice. The hygiene in the bathrooms also needs improvement. Overall, food, service & view great.
Picked a bad night to go weather wise. It was pouring rain so didn’t get a chance to enjoy the view or being outdoors. Our table was not in the best spot...next to kitchen door and next to huge noisy Portable AC. The staff was doing the best they could under the circumstances. Looking forward to giving this place another try on a nicer day.
The place is very pretty. The food was delicious. The service very slow. The music for my taste, too laud.
The server was on something. He was off. We waited over thirty minutes just for water. The food was BASIC. They drinks were mediocre. Only aspect of this establishment is the outdoor ambiance. A waste of money. The menu was less than Ihop or Dennys.
Would love the more lovely music to come back.
Place was really nice!! Service was not. Had to call for waiters service on more than three occasions and still had to wait. You would think with the curfew they would be more efficient with the ordering so we didn’t need to eat rushed with stadium light turned on...
Very disappointed in the service.
Everything was perfect. The staff is amazing, very kind and attentive. The food is excellent, the place is gorgeous and the atmosphere is so pleasant. We went there to celebrate my friend’s birthday and everyone loved it.
Good place, food ok, service horrible. At least the top level the hosts were fast, nice and welcoming
Great brunch scene with water views
The view was beautiful! The food was delicious! We had the octopus, the lobster Benedict, a margherita pizza and the tuna tartare. We also ordered a pitcher of the red sangria, it was also very refreshing and yummy!
Definitely a party environment.
Gorgeous, Delicious, great service and environment!!! My only criticism was that the steak though it was delicious was very small especially considering the price and that the sangria was sub par.
The place is lovely with amazing views of downtown Miami. The food was great! They missed opportunities on serving us drinks as they took forever to come by the table to ask if we wanted refills, we had to ask them too... very pricey, and you even have to pay $20 for valet, which seems excessive to me!
Love this place. We often come here. The food is great but the service is not.
Also $14 for 3 drops of Baileys? Hmm..
I love this restaurant very much, I go there once a month, but this time there were terrible drinks! My husband ordered wine and it was sour and terrible! I ordered 2 cocktails and there was one ice and they were like water with syrup! Terribly tasteless! Now I won't recommend you to my friends and I won't go myself until you have a good bartender working for you, just like before.
Had a great time !
Love the ambiance. DJ plays great background dinner music. Amazing view. Food is delicious even with its limited menu due to COVID
Everything was perfect! The view, food and our waiter was outstanding!! I’ll highly recommend it.
Great ambience, fabulous food, excellent service and some of the best views in Miami.
I had higher hopes for this place. The food was just OK. I ordered the chorizo pizza, they brought out pepperoni and the waiter wanted to debate whether the pizza was correct or not. The drinks were over priced but very good. I ordered a second serving of fries for my son, which never came and had to send the water server to find my waiter because he disappeared for 25 minutes. The views and overall ambiance were wonderful but there are too many other waterfront contenders in Miami and this place is not worth it.
Words can’t express how Sara treated me and my fam. before even arriving. I was called personally and also when I got there she was extremely accommodating due to my sensitivity and pre existing breathing conditions and couldn’t be seated near a group of people even social distancing.
She made me feel safe and treated us like royalty. Our server was a delight.
The food and drinks were amazing. The staff and service were constantly checking in on how everything was going. I loved the different types of drinks. And the Greek salad was fresh and tasty. We really enjoyed the experience and views despite the heat. There are fans and covered awnings to keep it cool. The only negative was when we were leaving when the security officer informed us we could not go near the dock or take photos of boats docked.
I’d definitely recommend to visit your lovely spot. Brilliant location. We’ve ordered couple appetizers and main dishes. It was quite over salty and we even didn’t finish many items ... As it was my Birthday guys brought a bright candle and it was very surprisingly fun. Hope next we’d treat us with yummy food as well!
The View is worth going for. Ambiance is very nice although we were seated next to a huge loud fan that was a big distraction. Service was outstanding, although the food was just ok for the price.
Me alegra haber descubierto este restaurante. La vista es increíble desde cualquier mesa que estés sentado.
La comida está bien y el servicio es impecable especialmente si te atiende Julio.
Es perfecto para ir al atardecer y disfrutar de un drink antes de la cena!!!
Really cute place but terrible if it rains!!
Good food, horrible service and management. We wish they change their attitude, led by the horrible obnoxious arrogant rude GM. We dock our boat there at the marina to come there and be given one of the worst service and attitude... too bad. Not coming back.
The food quality is not the same since Covid 19
Island Gardens has become my favorite place in Miami. The ambiance, DJ, staff, decor, views are AMAZING. Great people. Excellent social distancing. PERFECTION. 10/10 stars.
The best service in 305 & you can’t get tired of this view.
Came here for Miami Spice dinner. This is a great open space right on the water and has beautiful views. For dinner we had the salmon crudo (extra charge), beef carpaccio, branzino, and their signature flourless chocolate cake. Everything was delicious and the branzino was a decent sized serving. The chocolate cake was so delicious and chocolate-y. They have sanitizing wipes on the table for you to use, and have hand sanitizer throughout the restaurant, as well as gloves should you wish to wear them. Our waitress' mask kept slipping below her nose but didn't notice that issue with other waitstaff. She sprayed the bill holder and pens with sanitizer before giving them to us, which was greatly appreciated. Service ended up being slow towards the end of our meal but otherwise this was a great experience.
