    Service was very good and the food was amazing! If you're looking for a place to dine out with friends this is the right spot, not very romantic at all, there's a lot of noise... But I will come back with no problem. Valet parking was horrible, low end service and treatment, which made me feel I was at a cheap restaurant with a valet, the guy was hustling me for 15 bucks when I just got in... Tacky service and thumbs down for that.

    Dined at Barton G a few nights ago. Food was absolutely mediocre and the presentation that is supposed to be exceptional was sooo gimmicky that is is not even attractive. Had the pop tarts as an appetizer: almost no filling and the little that was there had no taste at all; The lobster mac and cheese was like supermarket instant box with lobster that taste like chicken! I don't think I ever had a lobster with such a horrible texture that made me loose my appetite. Most of the desserts were served with those small torchy sticks (fireworks) that make u feel like you are in a kids party! So infantile, that is not even funny! I dont reccomed to anyone and i think it is just a waste of time and money!

    Ambiance and service are decent if unexceptional. The food is the main concern-it seems this restaurant focuses only on interesting presentation and the actual dishes are bland and uninspiring, especially given the cost.

    This restaurant was on our list of to do's for south beach. We didnt regret it. Any thoughts that maybe the food quality may suffer as a result of the amazing presentation were quickly put to bed. The food was fresh and tasted incredible! none of us could finish our meals, they were huge. Fantastic experience and I would recommend to everyone!!

    My wife and I went to Barton G. on this past Saturday for out date night. What an awesome place. Not only do you go out to dinner but their way on presenting the Specialty Martini's and the food was amazing. The Food was great and our server Alexandria was on spot. There is plenty of help in the restaurant so you can get what you want without having to wait. It's a little pricy but I knew that going in.

    The food presentstikn was excellent. The food taste wonderful. My waiter was outstanding as he gave tips on where to sit, take pictures with props. The menu is on an iPad. It was an excellent evening for my mom's bday celebration. If you get there early, the restaurant is quiet. If you get there later, the restaurant gets louder.

    The service and costumer service was excellent, the only issue I had was that I went to celebrate an anniversary with my girlfriend and we were sitting in between two groups of people very loud and we requested to be seated in another table. Service was excellent, food quality and servers were very polite and were able to meet our expectations.

    I heard about this place from a friend and it had been on my restaurant bucket list awhile. We were running late from our boat charter and had a late reservation to start. They were so accommodating and seated us 10 mins before the kitchen was to close. I noticed right away that there were many large parties and several birthdays as desserts were coming out with sparklers. We sipped our delicious nitrotinis and watched as servers delivered spectacular food art to nearby tables. I was a little skeptical at first and thought maybe the food would be just mediocre. Lots of places have some feature or gimic to get you in the door and I clearly would've come just for the artful presentation of the food. That was NOT the case at all! Everything we ordered was outstanding! I had the lobster poptarts for my appetizer and admit I ordered it because I heard it was delivered to the table in a retro toaster. It was delicious! My Mom and boyfriend loved their salad appetizers too. I had the filet served on top of short ribs for my entree. It was one of the best steaks I've had and we travel and eat around, including Miami's Prime 112. Everything was perfectly cooked and delicious for all of us. We had a great time and a great meal. Dessert was so fun! It was very pricey and I feel it was worth every penny! I'll definitely come back and recommend it to friends.

    All the effort is placed in food presentation, I would say tooooo much! Some of it is so big that you can't see the person across the table. It even goes to tacky and uncomfortable. The quality of the food ok but very overpriced for what you get. Desserts are the same as what you can get at a fair for $2 (cotton candy, funnel cake).

    Too loud and not a good place for a quiet meal. It was too dark and we couldn't see our food. A big part of the dining experience is being able to see what you are eating. It's a unique concept but the focus should probably be a little more on the food and the guest not just the presentation.

    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.
