    This restaurant visit was as unexpected as the circus. The menu was creative, but the presentation was over the top. So fun! Have your camera ready when the food comes to the table, and then be amazed as you take a bite. Even though he originated this idea in Miami, this is a true LA experience. Great job Barton G! I can't wait for my next visit.

  • Fun but a little distracting

    Fun environment, with a focus on presentation, using lots of props. The food was good, but a bit pricy, should definitely be listed as $$$ not $$. The interior was nicely done, and good soft lighting. Service was great. The only downside to the props is that they can be very distracting, (you can have them removed after they bring the food :-). Nice wine list, and some wild cocktails (with fog of course). Probably better for a small group than just a couple. The appetisers and desserts were like $30 so a bit much to share for just two.

    I had been following the Miami restaurant and was pleasantly surprised to learn Barton G recently opened here in Beverly Hills. I immediately made reservations for my birthday celebration, we were a party of 6 ranging from ages from 18 to 50, all of us absolutely loved the restaurant and the quality of food was outstanding. We have been talking about the restaurant daily since dinner Monday night. Can't wait to go back!

  • Disappointing and mediocre
    TheDailyCrave
    Dined on 10/11/2014
    I imagine this may be a hit with a tourist crowd as presentations of food are outlandish and picture worthy-which basically means that people will take photos all night but then never need to return as food is sub par (read: tasteless) and overpriced. Front check in main hostess is plain rude-seating is poorly laid out as the gimmicky dishes are too large to fit on the tables to be able to eat comfortably. Drinks are incredibly overpriced ($20/cocktail?!) and mediocre at best. Skip it. This place is a fail for LA-would possibly be better suited for Vegas.

    An amazing dinning experience! The food was delish and presentation was just out of this would. My friend and i arrived 20 minutes late for our reservation and they had no problem seating us immediately. We sat at a table for 2 the only downside is that the tables are far too close together! We didn't like that but it is what it is I guess. Overall it was 1st class all the way and the prices reflect that. I will go back. Awesome for special celebrations & romantic datenights!

    Can't say enough about how much fun we had dining at Barton G. Haven't ever laughed and smiled so much in a fine dining restaurant! The food is terrific - love those lobster pop tarts and the sea bass was like butter in your mouth. The dipping sauces with the french fry tower were all great! As delicious as the food is that is only part of a great experience - don't want to ruin the fun for first timers as we were. Enjoy!

    The restaurant itself was good. The seating arraingements (at least where we were seated) has some to be desired as we were pretty much on the "runway" between the bar and the front entrance. For the price of the meals we paid for having someone's backside in our face every now and then is not very pleasurable. There needs to be more privacy if you will so one can enjoy their "not cheap" meal. No complaint about the pricing but if you are going to pay that much for dinner you want it to be a good thing all around without having to have a proctologist license just to eat.

    My experience: I took some clients out to dinner , the ambiance fantastic , people of all places , the service friendly , the drinks to die for it , we had a fantastic waiter very friendly and welling to take the pictures we requested , the food amazing , presentation is a show to see, the flavors incredible, we were able to talk with few of the restaurant's attendee's very happy and friendly , the dessert , we order just one and it was more that enough for a party of four , it was a decadent chocolate brownie with ice cream on a pirate kind of treasury box the restaurant is not inexpensive , but it is worth it , will go back

    Barton G has a great atmosphere, the setting was great, tons of people and definitely a hot spot however the food is really lacking. The presentation was definitely over-the-top however the food does not match up at all. I had 3 guests with me for dinner and unfortunately everyone felt the same way. I hope they can fix that problem pretty quickly because in a town like LA, where food is just getting better and better, this restaurant will not last if the food is sub-par.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
