Diner Reviews
  • "This restaurant is at the Versace mansion. The doorman told us about open table and we got a booking for the same night, which was my 50th birthday. The food was fantastic and the staff were great. They clearly love working in such an opulent place and are enthused to show you around and share some history and facts. A birthday to remember, especially as my partner proposed to me there."

  • "Booking was difficult We had to climb over a chain to get to the steps.The lady at reception was very unfriendly and actually rude. The casa casuarino is spectacular and the terrace where we ate was beautiful. There were only six others on the terrace which can take 300 so there was no buzz. We met an American couple who had managed to get a table by pointing out that the place was practically empty. The service and food was very good so it is sad that they are scaring off the customers at the front desk. It is a pity but unless there is a seachange in attitude this restaurant can not survive."

  • "Saturday we had a fabulous dining experience at the fabulous Versace Mansion Villa by Barton G in Miami. Amazing ambience and wonderful food. Loved it! I highly recommend it and I can't neglect to mention how awesome and helpful was our waiter José. If you are in Miami for vacation really can't miss it, you will have a blast."

  • "Service and ambiance were outstanding and the food was excellent. Stunning setting, especially the courtyard around the pool for outdoor dining. The area is well protected from the weather, so no worries if rain is threatening. Can tour the first floor on your own while waiting for food to come. Only issue is the chain outside the entry steps from the sidewalk. When we arrived, there is no one there so we stepped around the end of the chain to climb the steps and let the hostess know we were there. Even though it was clear to him we had reservations, we are reprimanded by the tuxedo-adorned bouncer for walking around the chain. It was not a pleasant way to start an otherwise fabulous (and fabulously expensive) evening."

  • "By the far the most breath taking dinner experience ever (especially if you love the versace empire) . The food and ambiance was perfect you really want to stay and enjoy a long evening dinner. Our waitress was (Kat) super attentetive and nice.(loved her). So happy I got a reservation when I did, it recently opened and hopefully everyone loves it as much as me and my friends. I'm definitly coming back & also staying in the available hotel rooms they."

  • "Based on a few of the reviews, I was a little concerned about going to this restaurant. However, I was truly amazed by the experience. In all of the places I've dined at around the world, this is one of the top 5 places. The ambience is amazing and the food was outstanding. But the biggest surprise was the service. I was very concerned about this before I got there. But our waiter Shane, was the best server we've ever had. It is obvious, the restaurant has really worked hard to improve the service. It really is first class. I couldn't suggest a single improvement they could make. After dinner, Shane took the time to show us around the villa and suggested we take our last glass of wine and sit by the pool. It was truly a perfect dinner."

  • "I wanted to take my significant other somewhere special for his 30th birthday, the Versace Mansion is such a historic, special place in Miami Beach. We had a reservation but we still had to wait to be seated inside, so we opted for an outside table. The food wasn't excellent like many of the reviews say. But there are many other great places to eat on the beach. The steak was excellent, but it came with a side of creamed spinach that was gross. =( Surprisingly, the food wasn't that expensive. We spent a little over $100, and we would have spent more at Prime. But since there is really not a lot of selection, there wasn't much to order. Would I go again? Probably not, it was a good experience but not really somewhere I need to go again."

  • "We enjoyed our meal , dining room is awesome. The food was very good but considering the reputation for a Barton G restaurant we felt the service was lacking. Otherwise we enjoyed the pleasure of dining in such beautiful surroundings"

  • "The mansion is worth the visit as it is spectacular. The bar and drinks were first rate and enjoyable way to begin the evening; however the food is extremely disappointing and under whelming. The fish is over cooked the pasta my wife had was over sauced, soggy and tasted like a $8 pasta not a $28. I don't want to be dramatic but this was way below standard for south beach or the environment. Service was fair but even if it was great it could not have made up for the food. We will not return to this Barton G; however still enjoy his other restaurants."
