    The staff was very attentive and kind. This was a 5 star dinning experience. The food's presentation was incredible, out of this world and unforgettable. I have been to many fun restaurants that have unique atmosphere but never anything like this. The prices are reasonable and the portions are huge. You must have reservations to eat here and make them early in the week.

    I'd heard about Barton G in Los Angeles mag and then also from friends. It's small but well laid out. The presentation of the food is outlandish and fun. This kind of gimick wouldn't really work unless the food itself was delicious, which it was! We shared an appetizer and had two drinks and an entree a piece and made it out for 200 bucks. I wouldn't go often but I'd definitely go again.

    I had a great time at Barton G LA! No complaints, glad I did not let the negative reviews deter me! Will be back everything was so detailed and the taste was amazing! Ceaser Salad, PopCorn Shrimp, lobster Mac and Sea Bass! They even made me a virgin martini while my cousin partook in the Diamond Martini!

    I couldnt believe that a upscale place like that couldnt get my steak right. 54 dollars for steak and had to return my steak 2 times and they still couldnt get medium rare right. After trying 2 times I said forget it dont want it cause I just lost my appetite. Very disappointed!!

    Overall Barton G was disappointing. First of all, it was very expensive. That wouldn't be an issue if the food and ambiance were spectacular. The night I went was clearly a good night because there weren't many empty tables. Still the mood seemed like everyone was expecting more. The presentations for every dish served was over the top... sometimes entertaining and other times tacky. The clientele also left little to be desired. To give you an example, the person dining next to us spilled and broke his glass of red wine on the floor next to ours without any concern for any damage he caused to our meal, shoes, or clothes. To sum it up: don't waste your time or money.

    Service was good. Waiters very nice, management attentive, seated right away. Atmosphere was ok.Beautiful decor but so absolutely crowded we were basically sitting at another table. Crowd seemed uppity. Just trying to be at the cool new restaurant in town, lots of condescending looks as you walk through the restaurant. Presentation of food was neat and different. Very interesting. Food was mediocre at best. The tuna appetizer was boring, the Mac n cheese was velveeta for sure, the cauliflower was delicious, and the dessert was fine. The price was ridiculous. For the quality of food the price is not worth it. Sure it comes out in fun ways but $20 for velveeta is absurd. Fire the chef and you will have a cool restaurant worth the experience.

    The gimmicks are fun, but the food and drinks aren't worth the price. The server was great, but management was rude and there is wayyyy too little space to serve the crazy contraptions. Our neighbors server constantly was hitting me and my drinks because there was NO SPACE. Wait until this place becomes a big chain and pay chain prices.

    Had to wait 30 minutes for a table, even though we had a reservation. After all the waiting they gave us the table by the door. The drinks came after the food. There was no space on the table for the food, it was very cramped.

    The presentation is beyond imagination. All food was delicious and service was excellent. When we first arrived, the restaurant was not overly busy and we could communicate with each other and enjoy everything about the restaurant. As the restaurant got more crowded, the noise level was so high that I couldn't talk comfortably to anyone. I could not wait to get out of there. That said, the food was so delicious, I'd probably go again - but only on the early side before the restaurant gets overly busy and loud.

    I was sceptical at first seeing as how most the time when the food presentation is gorgeous the taste is not up to par however Barton G definately changed that opinion the food taste was just as amazing as the presentation I will definately be returning.

A whole new meaning to comfort food. It was such a fun dining experience. Can't wait to go again and get the "fork" and popcorn machine. Must have the lobster pop tarts!!

    Presentation is spectacular, portions are very large, food is meh. We got a bunch of apps and skipped entrees so to punish us, our mac and cheese, usually brought in some sort of crazy mouse trap or something, was brought on a basic wood plate. So we got meh food on simple serving wear, missing the whole point.

    So I specifically requested to be seated in the main dining area because it was my wife's birthday. Guess what didn't happen, not even an attempt. Instead we were seated in a cramped room which happens to also be the waiting area. It's soooooo cramped that the waiters have to squeeze in between the chairs to get from table to table. Next don't get the fish absolutely horrible! Finally our waitress was great and attentive.

    Really thought this place is somewhere to see, I loved the presentations of all the enteees we ordered so hip fun and new ... Never before seen. The appetizers and alcholic beverages were amazing, but I have to admit none of the main course meals were too good ... pretty mediocre for the cost its at ... I mean its definetly a fun restaurant to see, but for the price of the main course meals, the taste of the meals did not do justice... Its a place to take pictures pretty much it ... I think I'll go back but not more than twice.

    Great restaurant for a celebration - not for an intimate dinner. The over-the-top presentation of the food makes this "kid friendly", though it is certainly not a "family" restaurant. The food was very good, the presentation was one-of-a-kind, and our server was attentive and friendly. A great restaurant for a large party without budget considerations.

Work on the food and we will go back--until then--I will recommend it for friends who come from out of town that want something unique. Too many other restaurants in L.A. with fabulous food and I go back to restaurants for their food.

    Was recommended by my Cousin. Traveled from Chicago on Vacation. We were going to the Largo to see Bo Burnham, this was down the street, how convenient. We were told of the presentation of the meals and nothing can compare to the actual experience. Barton Weiss is very creative and innovative. The food was great and flavored well. My salmon with it's own fishing lure was great. My Daughter mac and cheese on its own mouse trap was delish and fun. Husband order the BBQ basket appetizer. He liked but should of ordered an entrée. The whole dining experience would be great for a large group or celebration as you can compare what outlandish displays of food come out from the kitchen. Well worth the money and time. Bring it to Chicago!!!

    If you come here, it's for the fun lively environment, not the food. The food is good, but it's the presentation of the meals that makes this place special. On the night that i was here, I saw equal amounts of kids AND adults marveling at the presentation of the food and drinks. Totally worth coming once.

    Went here the other night because I remembered going in Miami and loving it. The overall space is tightly packed, literally had to squeeze to make it to my table which was near on top of another couple. The space wouldn't be such an issue if the food wasn't as over the top-don't get me wrong, the crazy and excentric way the food is served is cute but the size of the restaurant does not call for it. The food was overpriced and not anything spectacular, my steak was $64 and incredibly average. The service was poor, we waited over 20 minutes to order and then later waited about the same time for the check and then found that our server had already clocked out.. Overall experience was underwhelming and disappointing

    The overall ambience, and presentation was outstanding. The drinks and appetizers were delicious and presented in extrodinary ways. The entrees however didn't measure up to the expectations set by the drinks and appetizers. The entrees were overpriced for the level of quality that you would expect. The presentation was phenomenal but the actual food was not. The 1lb lobster tail was chewy and tough and my bone in New York was over cooked and tough. I would go back but would stick to drinks and appetizers.

    Food comes out on these ridiculous looking things, like a sword or giant fishing lure...but that's kind of the charm/fun of it, I'm sure you'll get a good chuckle seeing them. We ordered the bucket of bones, which was just ok...overcooked and too much sauce (but then again we don't do a ton of sauce in Texas). Then we ordered the lobster mac...the lobster was half cooked/half raw, which needless to say put us off...but the first bite was good! The server was very cool about it, we all understand these things happen every now and then. I'll give this place another shot though, server was very nice...hopefully it was just a one time mistake!
