We had reservations confirmed twice for 7:45 p.m. We checked in on time and were told by the hostess that they were running a little bit behind, and told us to go to the bar or the sitting area to wait. I made a point to tell the hostess that this was an important business dinner with guests from Los Angeles and if she could get us a prime table it would be worth a little wait. We went to the bar and had drinks (which were very good-signature cocktails). At $25 per drink they should have been good. 45 min’s later I went back to check with the hostess on progress with our table. She told me that our table was finishing desert and clean up, so it shouldn’t be long. So I went back to the bar to join my party. We continued to wait patiently in the bar and observed numerous parties come and check in and then seated within 20-30 minutes. In the mean time we sit in the bar ordering more drinks. At 9:00 p.m. I went back to the hostess to be told that now there were two tables finishing desert and we would get the first one. Finally at almost 9:15 p.m. we were seated at a table literally in the back corner of the Resturant. I told the Hostess that this was an unacceptable table after an hour and half wait and asked for the Manager. I knew as soon as he walked up, that he was not going to accommodate us. He was too busy shaking hands with friends and colleagues around the bar and resturant. He said he was sorry, but there was nothing he could do as they were fully booked and we could wait for another table but that was likely going to be awhile. So I told him his decision was unacceptable and that I was going to post this review. He cared less. So we sat and ate at the back corner table where my wife and I faced the wall so that our guest could get a glimpse of the atmosphere we had come to enjoy from our previous visits. The food was good, but not great. The waiter (Antonio) was the savior to our evening. He was most attentive. What was once classy is now trashy.

Food was unremarkable. Charcuterie was worse than a lunchable.
If you really want to see the beautiful Versace mansion. Make a reservation, go in, maybe have a very overpriced cocktail and wander around the public areas, take photos around the fountain and then leave and go somewhere else to eat.

We made a reservations at 6 pm for birthday dinner, right when restaurant opens, perfect time to explore the estate before other guests arrive. Per our request we got cozy table by the pool edge. Dinner (branzina and sea bass) was delicious. And Pavlova dessert was amazing.

The ambiance here is obviously the main attraction but the food and service is also fairly exceptional— we had tuna tataki to start which was decent. I had the Chilean sea bass for dinner and that was truly out of this world, perfectly cooked over a simple wilted spinach. But eaten together in the perfect bite, perfectly balanced. My friend was a tad underwhelmed by his gnocchi but nonetheless weren’t disappointed. Everything was tasty and worth it for the experience👌🏽

Great atmosphere but the food was horrible. Absolutely no taste to the lamb chops that costed $60 some dollars. I don’t even think there was salt and pepper on them.

I feel like the place was overly priced for what it really was. It is indeed a nice place. However, many servers had attitudes and the crowd was so loud you can barely hear your thoughts. Overall, i would not go again.

This was a very bad experience. There was no table ready when I arrived. The hostess appearance is not very presentable. The waiter did not come back to our Table after we received our food. We were in the restaurant for maybe an hour and he never acknowledged us again. I literally had to get up from the table so they could bring our check once they brought our check The waiter was nowhere to be found and the staff told me that I had to wait till he came back from wherever he was because he had to close my check. I was standing in front of everyone waiting for him which made me and my friends look very dumb. This place is way overpriced and the atmosphere is not very pleasant. I will not recommend this place. They are literally selling the brand Because the food and the restaurant itself is not very good. The restrooms do not have AC

Had lunch reservations and the lunch menu was perfect! The portion sizes were filling but not overwhelming. The wine was right on point and the food was DELICIOUS! The ambiance was perfect. Although it was a little hot, we didn’t mind because everything else was perfect.

Poor service. Ask for steak medium, it was less than rare. Wine came not only after eating dinner but all plates being cleared. Some people smoking pot in restaurant and nothing done

Beautiful building, incredible pool and pieces of art. Outstanding food. A little pricey but nothing out of the ordinary for luxury restaurant prices in Miami. Service is slow but the place is so beautiful you’re in no rush to eat and leave, we stayed for almost 3 hours and it was just two of us. It’s truly the perfect destination for a birthday, anniversary or that type of special occasion. I am 100% definitely going back. Make sure you get seated by the pool for the full experience.

The overhead fan was full blast and was blowing things away all night. Our service took forever, and it didn’t seem like our server cared about giving us a great experience. The food was decent but not anything to write home about.

The wait time was ridiculous even with a reservation. I think it is a thing in Miami. We waited 1 hr to be seated even with a reservation. We got the $29 lunch. It was delicious. I will go back for the brownie. Just arm yourself with patience and it should be fine

I’ve been to Gianni’s a couple times and although the ambiance and atmosphere are exceptional, the food is not worth what they charge in the slightest. Go for drinks and the bread they put down as an appetizer and call it good. The mansion itself and the grounds are beautiful.
