Worst experience!!! 4 hours waiting and I had to ask for the manager which he made things worst by arguing with us! Obviously they over sold the restaurant! Couldn’t handle the demand! Will never set foot in this place again.

Went for Valentine’s Day to say the least. HORRIBLE. Made reservations two weeks prior. Arrived was in the valet line for 30 minutes before they came over to us saying that the lot was full & we had to find street parking two blocks over. There was a line down the block that you had to stand in to even check in regardless if you had reservations or not. Was standing in the line for about 30-40 min to check in, after that had to wait another hour to even get seated. Our reservations were at 930 didn’t sit down until 11. Finally when we sat down ordered drinks & appetizers. Appetizer came before our drinks. We ordered the lobster pop tarts which were decent. Ordered the lured salmon & jerk chicken , the chicken was fine , the salmon was absolutely disgusting, no seasoning on it what so ever. Asked about the presentation because it was brought on plate with a hook rather than the big fish & waiter said they change presentations every couple of months which is a lie because I saw the big fish at other tables. The desert was about the only thing that was good. I would def not recommend this restaurant. Cute for pictures but def just a hype.

This place is by far one of the worst I've ever been to valet parking was over 1hr of a wait to then have to make a longer line although we had reservations to wait another hour we got sat at 11:45 we waited another hour for our food trying to make the best of it knowing it was Valentine but to top it off our food come out n the steak was super cold the tuna was basically still frozen inside I was livid when we ask for the manager she didn't even come to address the issues she simply told our waiter to just offer us shots or a desert mind u we don't drink and we were expecting the meal to b more than ok we went basically on n empty stomach then as we are leaving we approach valet for our car n they could not find our car one thing is being busy for a day like Valentine's but another is to b outrageously unorganized the place was just a complete disaster!!!

I love Barton G and frequent the restaurant. Valentine’s day seemed a bit unorganized and staff not prepared to handle reservations. Had 8:30pm reservations and did not get seated until close to 10pm therefore cancelling the rest of the evening. Had conversations at the bar where people with later reservations were being texted to be seated prior than some of us who had earlier reservations. The restaurant definitely got hit and the pre plan did not work.

There was no purpose of a reservation. We had an 8:15 reservation and was seated at 9pm. They were completely overbooked. It’s a cool place with excellent presentation but super expensive !!

Terrible experience. We came for Valentines, we had reservation and had to wait for 1 hour to be seated. Food was really bad and expensive. I do not mind to pay for good food, we always go to nice restaurants. We ordered Tomahawk steak for $135, it was very fat, looked and tasted parboiled, horrible. We could not even finish. When I told to the waiter, he told me that he thinks it’s great.

Been to Barton G quite a few time. I know it’s Valentines Day but we felt so RUSHED it didn’t make us enjoy the meal as much as we should have. Food and service were great as usual but the rushing of our meal made it less enjoyable.

I felt like a number. They contacted me 4 times to confirm my reservation reminding me each time that they would hold my reservation exactly 15 minutes and then I’d lose my reservation and be charged $50 for not being there on tine. With Miami traffic that created tremendous pressure. The waitress was very good, the clean up person was pleasant but aggressive so you could feel they wanted to turn the table. I’ve been a few times in the last 15 years and probably won’t hurry back. Many better places in Miami.

This was a fantastic dining experience. I had never been to such a creative and entertaining place to dine. This was as good as any dinner theatre that I have experienced.

The wait staff was as enthusiastic about the presentation as we were. I highly recommend Barton G for an entertaining dining experience.

Fun for a 15th birthday, all about the presentation.
The food is mediocre, way over priced. $18 for a virgin lemonade in a martini glass... Do not go on a budget.

Went for my son’s 7th birthday. The waiter couldn’t get straight whose birthday it was so he said it to all of us over and over.
Food came very quickly and they rushed us out of there. No fun presentations. The woman refilled my husband water several times and never mine. I tried to call her back, but she couldn’t hear me because it was so loud. The food was so-so. Nothing special for those exorbitant prices. Won’t be back. Kids were really disappointed.

This restaurant has changed a lot since the last time I visited but not in a good way... I tried to order some wine and they didn't have 2 of the bottles I picked first and only manage to get a cheap imitation of the one that was stated on the menu on the third time. The ambiance was very casual, not the fancy dinning that used to be. Probably not going ever again. The salmon was OK I guess but still everything is really overpriced for the experienced that we've got.

I dined at your restaurant on Friday night with my girlfriend. The food, service, and experience was fantastic. However, I was extremely disappointed with the waitresses lack of communication on the prices of the specials... My girlfriend ordered the surf and turf special for herself and NEVER once mentioned anything about the price or the size. I later got the bill only to be presented with a $165 entree for her. The same thing happened with the tuna tartar appetizer. I am extremely dissatisfied with lack of communication and would have never ordered that meal had we known.

I live local, and I dine out at nice restaurants often. I can tell you that I will never visit the restaurant again simply due to the bill stacking tactics.
