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.

Very exciting to see inside the mansion, but nothing super special about the food. You "pay" for the interior experience but well worth the cost. Loved the experience.

Excellent venue for a romantic dinner. Pleasant music that allows people to chat during the meal. Amazing ambiance. Food is excellent, try the octopus carpaccio. Staff very professional and attentive. Saw a handicapped person struggling to get through the tables with her cart.
In all a perfect afternoon.

Vale una visita non fosse altro per il fatto che era la Villa dove viveva Gianni Versace: i piatti sono gustosi, ho mangiato pata negra, ribeye con tartufi, bottiglia di Tignanello, l’ambiente estremamente affascinante con una piscina che fa da contorno all’area dei tavoli. Costi abbastanza alti.

I really enjoyed the 3 course lunch. The food was very good. My salmon was a bit small but delicious... I didn’t complain about it because $29 for 3 courses was a good deal. I thought the service was very good. Everyone was friendly and I enjoyed eating outside. Not a big deal but just an FYI... they already add a 22 percent tip on. I thought it was a cool experience and my teen enjoyed it as our last meal in Miami before we headed to the airport.

Our waiter, Ernesto, was exceptional. He showed us the second living room and previously kitchen, now bar, area upon request. The food was very nice; I highly recommend the ravioli! Bring your camera and take tons of pictures!

Lovely setting and good food. We had signature drinks, lobster with spaghetti, and chilean sea bass. Cushions on the front patio were damp. Many people were underdressed.

I had a dinner and mosquitos were fond of me I asked the manager to move me inside since I can’t tolerate the bites any more he didn’t even came to us and apologize but sent a waiter as a straight NO.
I asked for lemon to rub on my skin since it was a birthday dinner and I couldn’t leave. It helped but I left with sour feeling The food is ok but definitely overpriced may be considering location and the brand perhaps can justify.
There was certain favoritism was visible towards certain tables that made us feel neglected. I wouldn’t recommend unless you’d pay for fountain view pic that’s all.

Well... let’s start off with making us wait 50 minutes while we watched EVERYONE who came in before and after us be seated. Our concierge had spoken to your general manager to please seat us in front of the pool as we were taking people for both our anniversaries. We were lead to believe that this was a done deal.

We were wrong!! We were finally seated as far from the pool as possible.

You embarrassed us in front of our guests and you embarrassed our concierge.

Am I wasting my time writing this Gabriel..... yes!!!
Do you even care... no!

Overall we had a good time. It was my son’s 14th birthday celebration. The food was great. However, the service was subpar. The server wasn’t very attentive to our party at all.

This was a great experience that I'm so glad I had the opportunity to have. The former Versace Mansion is a beautiful place, and the prefix lunch can't be beat. Quite honestly, I was surprised it was only $29 for 3 courses. I highly recommend.

Food was very bland and overpriced. Loved the experience of being in the Versace home. But it’s really not worth it for the food. Luckily I knew ahead of time you go for the experience more then the food.

This is my second time dining here. The first time was 2 years ago and it was wonderful. Food and service were excellent. However, this years visit was the complete opposite. Food was mediocre at best. I’m not sure if it’s under new Managment, or has a new chef....it was extremely disappointing. The ambiance is wonderful, sitting outside by the pool. It’s the service ie unfriendly and inattentive waitstaff and poor quality food will keep me from revisiting and recommending.

Made our reservation for 8:30, but didn’t get seated until 10pm-which is fine because it was so beautiful outside, and the mansion is gorgeous. But I think they need to figure out their reservation system, we had a couple next to us whose reservation was at 7:30, and they still had not been seated. At least the hostess and servers were super nice and accommodating about it.

The only upsetting factor was the wait for our food. Our waiter didn’t ask if we wanted more drinks, either, and only came to take our order and then disappeared. And the food took 45 minutes to come out. I had to get up and grab the manager who immediately got us drinks on the house, which was nice, but we weren’t reassured by anyone about the food, and it just felt very cold for a meal that cost us an arm and a leg.

I guess the only reason i would recommend Giannis is because Of the ambience. The food is not a big deal for what the prices are. I ordered a Spinach and cheese ravioli and it came cold. My husband ordered prime bone ribeye with a side of mashed potatoes, the mash potatoes also came cold we had to send it back. We weren't impressed with The service. We actually had a 8:30 pm reservation and had to wait for almost 40 minutes.

They told us they “ran out” of their signature bread when I asked why there was sliced grocery store bread on the table. I look beneath me at the tables nearby the pool and they had signature bread that they had “run out” of. Waitress was inattentive and uninterested because her 22% tip was guaranteed in the bill. Beautiful building terrible customer service

We LOVE going for lunch at Gianni’s, especially now with the gorgeous weather, it is so beautiful to sit outside by the pool, just a great experience. Going during the week it is even better as not so crowded, we are locals so we like to enjoy it when it is a bit more quiet.
Lunch was lovely, you can order a la carte or you can choose the fixed price menu for $ 29 which is an amazing deal, there are some supplements on some of the dishes but totally worth it.
To start we had for appetizers the Tuna Tartar, Octopus and Kobe Beef Carpaccio, Burrata and Zucchini Blossom, I particularly love the Carpaccios, then we had Grilled Branzino, Prime Burger and my favorite the Lobster Spaghetti.
Apart from the food and the lovely ambiance, the highlight of our lunch, was our waiter Stanfford, he was amazing, great service, friendly, funny and told our friends that did not know the story of the Villa all about it. Just a lovely experience, thank you Stanfford and thank you Cristian for inviting us back, we really appreciate it, we will be back again and again

I failed to request specific seating when making the reservation. Upon arrival, it was a beautiful warm and sunny January day and I wanted to dine poolside. The staff gladly arranged my seating and my poolside view was grand. The menu selection was a superb variety to please all palates. Lunch was exceptional and the atmosphere is a must to experience when visiting South Beach.
