I was dining solo from out of town. Every food item I ordered came out within minutes and I felt very rushed as a solo diner compared to the other tables around me with multiple people. Beautiful space and excellent food but I couldn’t even order my wine for dinner because dinner came minutes after my salad. I guess fast service is good, but for someone on vacation trying to relax it felt very unwanted.

Great place for a special occasion (in our case, a family birthday). Although the major allure is the mansion itself and the attendees, the food was actually quite good. We went for the lunch special which included some specially memorable appetizers (loved the tuna tartar and the burrata), although the entrees were somewhat underwhelming. The "house" wine (VERSACE Nero D’Avola IGT) was a nice surprise. The staff was very friendly, specially our server Pamela. Not inexpensive but a worthwhile experience.

Buena comida. No muy buen servicio. Teníamos una reserva para las 22:15 y ni bien nos sentamos nos dijeron que teníamos que pedir rápido la comida porque la cocina cerraba 22:45. Mal para un lugar que es caro. Overpriced!!

The ambience and service are excellent, whilst the setting is uniquely exceptional. Unfortunately on this occasion the food was uninspired, tepid when served and not worth the money paid.

The venue was gorgeous, but the food was terrible and the truffle gnocchi made me quite sick. On top of that, they added an auto-gratuity of 22% without mentioning it and we almost tipped an extra $80 on our already over-priced meal.

If you’re looking for a cool instagram photo, get a drink then leave. It’s not worth your time or money to eat here.

My mom and I went here for lunch on a Saturday and the atmosphere was beautiful but the food was mediocre. The burrata appetizer and the house salad were both delicious- but the entrees were just ok. It was pretty busy- so the service was a bit on the slow side, but our server was very nice. Overall- totally worth checking it out. We had a really fun time and got to see the beautiful Versace Mansion.

We were looking forward to dinner at the Versace mansion for several weeks. The mansion provides an incredible atmosphere. However, the service was deplorable. We waited over 15 minutes to be waited on after immediately being seated upon arrival. Service is slow and they forgot the entrées. One in the party is a vegan and it’s the first restaurant we’ve been to where they would make zero accommodations. It was a shock!

There are so many other incredible restaurants in the South Beach Miami area, I avoid this one all together.

Beautiful surroundings. Service good. Set lunch menu reasonably priced for the venue. Certainly a must experience. Not the best food we’ve ever eaten but more than reasonable and location more than compensated. Ate beside pool which we felt was probably the best location.

Incredible, the ambience alone was incredible. Tried the 3 course meal for lunch: tuna tartare (extra $5), salmon, and finished with sorbet. Great lunch in a beautiful setting with an excellent wait staff! 10/10!

It's hard to talk to each other a bit to mutch noise. The chocolate dessert the shell was to hard to break it. But rather then that was a amazing experience. Good service and a amazing scenery. 👍 Thanks!

The restaurant is expensive, but not as expensive as some people think. You are not only paying for the meal but also for the experience of dining in a fabulous Casa that is rich in history and celebrity. The portions are not overwhelming but the quality and presentation of the food is extraordinary. Dinner for two with plenty of wine is $300, tax and tip included.

The ambience was dreamy. The food extremely well-prepared except the fruit plate, the melon wasn't sweet enough or ripe enough and I think it could have a bit prettier presentation a la gourmet. The colored cauliflower was barely warm.
It was a wonderful opportunity to dine there. I love it.
Thank you

Attrape touriste: endroit canon mais nourriture déplorable...
Pas de vin français (plus une référence disponible d'apres le serveur).
Nourriture à la limite de la honte... Potatoe truffe sans truffe... Le serveur me dit que c'est mixer dedans... Je rêve.
Pâta negra bellotta: ce n en est pas
Bref tout est à l'avenant... Grosse déception, il y a tant de bons restaurants à Miami...
Gianni doit se retourner dans sa tombe, paix à son âme.

Had such an amazing experience!!!! The service was impeccable! Let me just say this...Edward P is a GEM that you guys have!!! He gave the best service I’d received in all of my trip to Miami! Keep him!! Definitely an unforgettable experience from him and the manager...I’m sorry I can’t remember his name but he was from the north east and was dapper! We went in expecting to not fit in but my group and I were made to feel welcome!!!
Thanks for an amazing experience for myself and my best friend who was celebrating his 30th bday!

Quite obviously a spot designed to say you’ve been there, not to enjoy a quality meal. The food was appalling and the service almost as bad. The place is beautiful so if that’s all you’re looking for you’ll be quite happy. Cannot recommend to anyone else. Certainly the most disappointing meal of our vacation.

Food had good flavor but was served room temperature. We travel quite a bit and eat at expensive restaurants all the time and we’re quite disappointed by the discount between the kitchen and the front of house. Good must have sat for 10 min+ or so before being served at our table

Won’t be back

Amazing ambience ... food average ; presented in an ordinary way . We had a beautiful evening and enjoyed the mansion . Our servers were knowledgeable and efficient . We would recommend going for the setting and the experience but the Tomahawk steak was served plain ; no sauces available . The grilled salmon was acceptable . Go , enjoy , visit the neighbourhood !!!

We made a reservation requesting a table outside by the pool for lunch on a Sunday and they had the perfect table ready for us just minutes after we arrived. The staff was very friendly and courteous and you really cannot beat the atmosphere. The food was great too! We’ll definitely be back.

One of the most beautiful courtyards I’ve ever seen. Worth checking out, but eat before. Food is mediocre, edging on bad and even terrible considering the price. Avoid ordering the cocktails. Great wine list. Wrong serving temperature and bad stemware though. Servers were lovely.

The food was not good. The carpaccio was just sliced tomatoes. Potatoes were cold and the steak had no flavor and was over cooked. I would recommend having a cocktail to see the house but don’t eat there.
