    Always wanted to try this restaurant so my wife's birthday was the perfect opportunity. We went to Barton G on 14th and West Ave (South Beach) and the food was great. The lobster pop tarts were fantastic! We really enjoyed the service and ambiance. The music was upbeat and appropriate for the mood and made our time there fly by. We had to past on dessert so not to miss our movie. We'll definitely be back for more great food, music and dessert next time.

    Fun concept for a one-time experience. Drinks and food all come out with a presentation theme, and are presented to generate maximum attention. Prices are high, since this is really more of an experience than a standard meal. Charging $15 for valet parking is just obnoxious. To pay $100 per person on average (no alcohol was ordered) to have a meal delivered in an ostentatious manner is just not something I'd go back to again. I'm sure some people find this place amazing - I just don't get it.

    Presentation is this restaurant's expertise. The big, fantastic dishes are surprising and delightful but can become inconvenient with the small tables. Although the food is delicious, the theatrics inflate the pricing. If you're looking for simple, good quality food, I wouldn't recommend this place. If you're looking for a fun experience with great service or looking to impress someone special, this is the place for you.

    While pricey, the nitro cocktails are refreshing, balanced, and really pack a punch; they're well worth the price. The lobster pop tarts were flakey and warm with just the right amount of succulent lobster and creamy filling. The lobster mac and cheese was the most outrageous, decadent, sumptuous thing I have ever eaten. Topped with a crispy, cheesy crust, the warm, gooey inside was the perfect mix of pasta and large succulent lobster chunks. This is a must if you visit Barton G. My other dinner guests had the short ribs and the skirt steak. Both of which were superb as well. Sadly, we didn't have room for dessert, but the options sounded (and looked) delicious.

    we really enjoyed this restaurant. the food was great and the experience was fun and different. we were a little disappointed in the presentation. we were expecting to be really blown away from all the other reviews we found but our entrees were nothing special; they were served on plates that had either a baseball bat or a giant lure on them. different but didn't blow us away. anyone can glue something funky to a plate. likewise with the apps...a little underwhelming from what we were expecting. the drinks were fun; a shot is frozen in liquid nitrogen and smokes for a time, but they were not all that tasty. overall the food was good tho. would recommend.

The sommelier was very knowledgeable and showed us around which was a lovely and unexpected treat. Casa Prima Pasta was also impressive good menu, service, food and beautiful interior. Thanks to Giuseppe for a complimentary drink and interest in us as customers. Very personal service, delicious food. Very disappointed by Il Sole, service haphazard -wrong wine, conflicting menu info, pre-drinks not served, snobby hosts and staff. NOT RECOMMENDED!

    I took my wife to dinner for our 27 Anniversary. On the reservation I had asked for a nice table for this reason. We get a table near the main walkway not very romantic. The service was slow it took our waitress awhile to come over to us, she talked really fast and did not explain the specials she sure did not tell me the appetizer was $79 for 2 frozen crab legs cut in half ,3 shrimp nice size,1/2 Maine lobster and 2 crab claws. Drinks and deserts way over priced, the back in black skirt steak was really tender I must admit. My wife had gone before and said she had a much better experience,not sure what happened this time. All in all the Barton G was not worth the $260.00 I paid for dinner very disappointed, come on $29 for cotton candy!!!

    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.
