    Dined on 8/29/2014
    I am from out of town, and have been here before and recommended it to my friends because I thought it would be fun. It is a great place, and is vibrant, but the service leaves alot to be desired. From upon first entering the door, we just stood there not knowing what to do because no one greeted us, and several hosts passed us by. Then when we finally were seated, our waiter was just the worse ever. Taking all of our orders took way longer than it should have, and he just overall had a poor attitude. Very disappointing. I expect more from Barton G's, when you charge $30 for just drinks, your service needs to be at a different level, and that was not displayed. I was embarrassed that I recommended the establishment to my group.

    I brought my wife here for a small celebration over the weekend. We are in our early 30s and have been to the other popular sorts like Prime 112, Juvia ect ect. I wanted something a little different and after reading all about there atmosphere, decided to try it out. I notified them ahead of time it was a celebration and to have a table prepped with something like champaign. We got there, nothing on the table as requested. Anyway, this place caters to kids, kids and more kids. They do a nice thing for the 5-12 year old demographic, so if kids are not your thing, then totally avoid. Also the different things that they do for presentation are cool, but I think that the staff has done them so many times they are forcing it. I won't go back.

    Wanted to try a new restaurant in Miami beach , drove 1hour so they can put me and my boyfriend outside on a very hot night while I had reservation for inside. The waiter wasn't nice, We ask few times to be moved inside but they didn't really care so we only had appetizer that was ok and left another hour driving back without a dinner. The best thing was my date !

    Food & service were outstanding but the outdoor dining was average at best. The area was nicely decorated but too dark to fully enjoy and see what we were eating not to mention very hot and the chances of rain ruining your dinner. I would not go back unless I can dine inside.

    We had just reached our 15 grace period,but was seated and greeted promptly. The weather provided for great out door eating. The server (David) was non intrusive and made some great suggestions. Food came out promptly and were excellent portions. I must say the staff also was very attentive towards every table. I will be returning again.

    The place has a great experience and it is a must to go once because of the food presentation which is funny, different and attractive, but food taste is "normal" for the price one is paying, not worth to spend so many dollars more than once as it is better to sepnd them in a really good quality tasty restaurant. Most of the people just go once but it is worth to at least know the place!. Not romantic by night, too many kids very noisy and running etc.. they even throw a couple of plates which makes it not that fun...

    The food presentation was fantastic, there was a lot of though behind the presentation of every dish. Loved the appetizers, main course was a bid disappointing but that could be because we were already full from too many apps..... For cocktails I ordered the margarita (which it was too sweet for my taste), the server offfer to remake it but it ended up not tasting right. I have to say:....great job creative team behind this restaurant!

    Dined on 7/19/2014
    We were under the impression this was a high end venue; however, upon arrival had to wait over 35 minutes to be seated (we arrived on time as per reservation). Once our table was ready, we were taken through the kitchen to an upstairs overflow room, where according to the host it was supposed to be "less crowded and more private". To our suprise, our table was a mere few inches away from the table next to it, leaving no room for privacy and being much more like family gathering. We had no other option than to politely reject the table and find another restaurant nearby.

    Stunning interior design and wonderful idea of "frozen" menu items, great service.. but steak was supposed to taste, at least, different. Too much butter everywhere. Lots of sugar. Sorry, but didn't enjoy my buttery meat and chocolate dessert that contained like 2 lbs of sugar. Appetizer was fine and all dishes were amazingly served but too much salt/butter/oil/fried stuff

    It was a amazing once and a life time experience. The food was perfect, but the presentations where phenomenal. It was really out of this world. This is our 2nd time going to Barton G's and we are always amazed. The costs however, are just as shocking. For us with drinks from their nitro bar, it came to about $200 per person, but as I mentioned it is a experience. If you can afford it - give it a shot. If your on a budget, do not enter.

    We arrived on time for our reservation and were seated outside. We politely asked to be placed inside and were told that was not possible. It was extremely warm out. Our drinks were very good and we ordered dinner. We were a party of 6 and dinner arrived less than 10 minutes after placing order. I have been dining in fine restaurants for many years and couldnt believe how quickly our food arrived. This was supposed to be an awesome dining experience yet felt like a fast food restaurant. The food was average at best with over the top presentations. From our seats on the upper patio outside we could clearly see that there were empty tables inside that were available when we arrived and were still empty when we were done!

    This is definitely an experience themed restaurant. If you have an open mind it's the place for you... It's fun, quirky, and great food.... If your a "foodie" not sure right place for you. Again, the food is great, however I can imagine a "foodie" giving G a hard time which would rob it from the amazing themed drinks to the great food and outrageous deserts with incredible presentations. If you have a fun spirit hit up Barton G, you will love it!!!!!!
