I wanted to take my boyfriend somewhere really nice. He isn't from Miami, so I wanted him to see a landmark. He was thoroughly impressed, as well as I. It isn't cheap. But, I think its worth every penny. I truly enjoyed the experience of this dinner.

I used to dine here for the last 4 years and always had great memories. Since the new management and after the show the clientele has changed to worse, the number of tables in the pool area are now double and the all vibes is like having dinner in a museum instead of enjoying what used to be a great mansion. The food was ok and so was the service but the number of people allowed in makes the all experience not worthy at all. Very sad but happy to have experienced it when it was a chic and charming restaurant and hotel.

Let me start off by explaining that I was visiting Miami all the way from Edmonton, Alberta Canada to see family that lives there. I decided that a special date night at Gianni's would be the perfect experience for my boyfriend and I. I booked our reservations over a month in advance to ensure that we would get a table while we were there. I read on the site about the dress code so my boyfriend who isn't one for dressing up, went out and bought new clothes especially for this occasion.

The hostess at the front door was barely interested in our existence let alone friendly. Then we were told that our table wasn't ready and that we could wait in the courtyard and take pictures or get a drink at the bar. We arrived on time at 7:30 and after patiently waiting for about 20 minutes in the courtyard, we got a drink at the bar. No one came up to serve us, we had to go up to the bar and ask for drinks. We finished our drinks and asked for the bill because they "couldn't" or wouldn't add it to our table. The bartender assured us that she would bring us the bill and took forever to do so. There were people who came after us that got their bill and were seated before us. My boyfriend had to stand at the bar trying to get the bartender's attention to pay and 2 drinks cost nearly $80.

Here in Canada, a reservation means there is a table waiting for you with your name on it when you arrive. People kept coming and getting seated before us which didn't make any sense to me. Also, don't bother dressing up because they apparently don't uphold their dress code either. By the time we were seated it was 8:20 and my boyfriend was so livid with the abysmal service that we got up from our table and decided to eat elsewhere that would respect our time and actually deliver good service. Do not waste your time or money at this establishment. I have never experienced such poor service at a restaurant in my entire life. Our special night was ruined because of your staff and poor management.

My first experience here was about 8 years ago when under the Barton G organization and it amazing, the food, service, atmosphere, exclusivity everything about the dinner was wonderful.

Now that it's changed hands, it's a typical South Beach tourist trap restaurant. VERY disappointing and definitely won't be going back.

The atmosphere was amazing even though it was raining. It is Versace's mansion - of course the atmosphere was amazing. The dinner itself was ok. The main course came out before we were even able to take a bite out of the bread from the bread basket. It made us believe that the food was already prepared and just needed to be reheated in a microwave or in an oven, instead of made-to-order. The bread was also stale. They didn't rush us out which was nice. But I think the food wasn't worth the price and I understand you are really just paying to say you dined in the Versace mansion. We timed dinner from the moment we sat until we were given the check - 55 minutes. The valet - we waited and waited. No one came. It started to rain. I was driving a Nissan Rogue. Still no one to valet could be found. A red Ferrari pulls up behind us and valet comes to greet them. The passenger in my car had to get out of the car i the rain to flag the valet person to let him now we were waiting. She ended up going to the host podium to tell them we wanted to valet our car. They told her to wait and someone would come. Those were the only issues. If you are looking to tour the mansion you can probably do that without having to dine there.

I had requested to sit outside visiting from the East Coast did not realize how humid it would be on a cloudy day when it was gonna rain we were put in a private room with no AC just a fan I really wish I was informed ahead of time to make the choice to sit inside or stay outside.

The only thing that was actually good about the whole experience was being in Versace’s mansion.
Over priced food with no taste and small portions. Had an 85$ bottle of wine that is 12$ in the store.
Too many people jammed in with too many tables.

Wonderful experience, we all felt like we were honored guests. Server was attentive, patient, and even took pictures for us. The weather was perfect for this open air poolside dining, even the 2 cars roaming around were friendly. Little noise heard from Ocean Dr on a Saturday evening, had a fantastic time and was a memorable birthday evening. Expensive but we knew that.

House and pool are beautiful. The food and presentation should have been much better for what the price dictates. The steaks were not cooked to desired temp and one was tough, the risotto was too thick, and it looked like a four year old plated our scallops. Understand that you are going here for the atmosphere and not the food you will not be disappointed. (Desert was the exception, great presentation)

Fantastic food. Scallops appetizer a must have! Service in the Restaurant was exceptional, hostess lacking in customer service, not one polite gesture between 3 of them...Guess this is how they deter non-diners? Alfresco dining in the courtyard very romantic, handcrafted cocktails were well prepared, and nothing felt overly pricey. Overall experience very, very worth it!

Very disappointing. The food was at most average. Definitely not worth the $$. The service was terrible. I waited with an empty drink for 40 minutes, our waiter hardly came up. My husband had to stop him as he walked past our table for the 50th time and ask for a drink. Gratuity was already included so the waiters could care less. We didn't expect the food to be top notch like most restaurants in Miami but at least we hoped for an interesting experience. The waiter didn't share any info about the house or any history. When you go to a historical location like this, you expect to hear some interesting details at least if your food and service sucks. If you want to see the mansion stop by during the day and go to the bar and take some photos. Don't waste your money on dinner.

My friends weren’t happy about the waiting time it was a super busy night. I have been here before, so I kept trying to convince my friends to stay. I told the girls how much longer, they got the manager and he was super cooperative and apologized for the waiting. He gave us appetizers and kept apologizing. I want to say they did an amazing job in trying to get us a table ready.

We got there on time for our 8:30 reservation. Went to the bar while we waited for our table. Hour and a half later they come to seat us but by the time we got to our table it had already been sat by someone else . They searched everywhere and finally found us a table but it was uneven so they had to locate us another table. 3rd time was a charm. Service was decent and the food was good. The real charm of this restaurant is the surroundings. Overpriced but on par for the usual on south beach.
