We were shocked that we had to pay $17 to valet when we were having dinner there. Food and drinks were very cool and delicious. But the prices were outrageous.

Way too expensive for all the mistakes that occurred. The waitress had to be told more than once that we wanted a dessert for a birthday we were celebrating than she brought it to the table without the sparklers I requested which would of been nice since my bill was $600 and I was still hungry because the food portion is so small. Afterwards she burned our dessert with a torch I believe she was suppose to just set it on fire but she didn't know what she was doing so she burned it and it was disgusting she through a napkin at my mother in-law which is who bday we were celebrating! had to be one of the worse experiences ever

I forgot our waitress's name, but she was outstanding and explained all the drinks and food. She really made it a wonderful experience for my boyfriend's birthday. He had never been there and really loved it, especially the food.

I was excited to try Barton G, and several guests in my party enjoyed the experience, but the quality of food and beverages fell short of my expectations, especially given the prices. The presentation of food was extravagant and unique but the food was disappointing and overpriced in my opinion. A $32 margarita served in a martini glass was all sugar, $49 “seared” salmon entree was lukewarm and tasted fried, roasted brocollini was greasy and cold. I was also told in advance business casual attire was required, yet majority of diners were wearing t-shirts—not at all biz casual. There are far better dining options in south beach. Unfortunately, Barton G is not one of my favorites.

Great food with incredible, over the top presentation. Popcorn shrimp comes in a popcorn machine. Very imaginative. Nitro lemon drop martini is very good. Desserts are crazy too. Good for special occasions.

Awesome restaurant, specially when you need to impress people. Good food, fantastic cocktails and food presentation that is out of this world. Been here several times and never disappointed. I only wish the tables would not be as close together and the place would not be so noisy. It makes it very difficult to keep a conversation, specially if you're with a bigger group.

Desserts are wonderful to look at, but way too pricey. I was celebrating an anniversary and couldn't afford to close the night with a bang, which almost ruined the entire dinner.

Second time there and the last! What a horrible experience. From the moment that the food was ordered until it was on our table is was around 4 minutes (medium-well T-Bone steak ordered). Food was stale, not fresh--seems as if it was just pre-cooked and sitting there. The presentations are fine and fun--this can only take you so far. Drinks, how can you justify $32 for a drink-- bacuse of where and how it is delivered/presented...it's not like you can keep the decorations, etc. Two people, one app (as a main course) , one entree, $90 bottle of wine, one dessert, and two mediocre cocktails-->$401.00 Ridiculous and not worth it...if it was, I would be fine with it...but I feel robbed! Stay away.

My partner and I had a terrible experience. This is our 3rd time visiting this place and this was the worst experience we had. It literally took us 15mins before anyone came by and I had to draw another waiter's attention so he could get the waitress to take our orders. Our drinks were awful and the meal I chose (tuna) was terrible and over priced and the music was very loud. The waitress only came to check on us about 3 times and we couldn't get her attention throughout the other times we needed assistance. When we got the check we were charged the tip and from what I understand Tips are optional not mandatory and from the service we received, it was not worth 25 dollars. Overall I wouldn't recommend going at this point.

It was my daughter’s 7th birthday so I wanted to go to a restaurant she would love while on vacation. Barton G was one to remember for the atmosphere, the over the top presentation of food and great service. She especially loved the funnel cake dessert that came with a toy gun cake reminiscent of a carnival game. She said that was her favorite part. You definitely pay for the ambience and the displays for the food. The drinks and food are pricey. The food was just okay. My lobster (surf and turf special) was over cooked and tough. But she enjoyed it all and that was the best part! Thanks Barton G for making her special birthday dinner an event she will remember!

The menu looks expensive, but the portions are large and the entertainment value of the whole experience makes it a great place if you are looking to celebrate a special event with fun instead of snobbery. Food lives up to the presentation. Seriously, one of our favorite meals ever, not just on the beach but even if we count other terrific places we have been lucky enough to visit. We were a party of seven. I would say that it's perfect for 6-8, so you can share. The finale was a chocolate amazement, dolla dolla. Plan on around $100/person, but well worth it!

Very unusual place, overpriced and felt like I should be in a nightclub. Server dropped entire ketchup in my sons lap and shirt. Did not offer any compensation for cleaning and still charged us an automatic 18% gratuity. Would not recommend as a family.
