Amazing experience . However we where a group of 4 . 3 mains came out and the 4 th one took very long to come out . We obviously couldn’t start till all plates where on the table and when the 4 th plate finally arrived my dinner was cold and the foie gras arrived when i had already finished my steak . Would have been nicer if the service was better and food came out altogether . When I pay good money for a nice dinner I expect good service .

I went to Giannis with 9 of my girl friends. We did not receive all of our food and we were not waited on at all. We spent 3 hours at the restaurant and complained to the manager. They gave us free prosecco and dessert, however we just wanted leave at that point since it was 11 pm. Since we were a big party, they tipped our waiter 22% for doing literally nothing.
Overall, awful wait staff experience!

Gianni’s was truly a thrill to experience. The history was daunting to realize. His spirit was palpable. The monastery was well-preserved and amazing as expected. The service was great at first before they got busy but the waiter was less available as the night progressed. The food was good overall, however, the fish was whole, not filleted and the bones were bothersome. Dessert was sublime. Ambiance poolside in the courtyard couldn’t have been better.

The ambience is stunning , very romantic place definitely suitable for a special occasion
This is right in the heart of south beach , ocean drive Miami in a area full of restaurants and clubs but this place stands out and is the highlight of the entire area
Very upscale and inviting like a fairy tale setting
The service is not in the same league though and should be better
Main course dishes like the grilled prawns or the crabs are all divine . Thoroughly loved it .

I have been waiting to go to the Versace Mansion for over a decade. I coordinated a dinner to surprise my significant other for our anniversary. It was a positive experience from beginning to end. I was expecting the usual Miami pompous attitude but I was surprised by how warm and welcoming the entire crew was. The staff were very friendly and multiple people (managers and other servers) would check in regularly to ensure you were having a good experience throughout the evening. They even encouraged exploring the gorgeous mansion and it was beyond my expectations. Such an iconic part of South Beach history, beautiful details, eclectic art everywhere, and a great rooftop with a 360 degree view. They had one of the best black truffle risotto I've ever tasted and a the desserts were delicious as well. I highly recommend this unforgettable experience and plan on returning!

Every bit the experience I had hoped for. It was like stepping back in time and into an artists piece of work. A mysterious atmosphere. Great food was an added bonus. Really excellent food for anyone. And the real treat was getting to see the beautiful tile mosaics that were beyond any description.

Exquisite food, loved the diver scallops and the Wagu filet mignon with the pan seared foie gras and truffles pommes purée; it was made to perfection! Also, they have a great wine list to complement their menu.

Great location for special events, romantic or even to get out to have a fine dining experience. Based on the price and location, I believe the staff service could be improved by paying attention to details...not to mention that the bill already includes a 22% gratuity.

It was one thing after another. Waited an hour to be seated. Then the waiter forgets my dinner (I am a vegetarian and I told my waiter I was) comes back with a plate of gnocchi and meat after an additional 30 minute wait. Told the waiter we just wanted the check to leave as it was NYE and we had reservations. He brought out the check and it had all the dishes we had never received and he threw on a few extra. Then he ripped the check out of my hand after I was examining it. Then he went on to take off one dish and not the others. It was just awful customer service. They did nothing to accommodate or apologize.

Gianni’s is always excellent ! From Lissette at the front ( the other hostess is nice as well just not as personable)
The manager is excellent as is the atmosphere, vibe, and food. My only complaint was our rude, condescending, and arrogant waiter. He was horrible but no doubt he will not last at a 5 star restaurant like Gianni’s. He has been there a month and has already reaceived several complaints.

We really enjoyed the ambiance, everyone enjoyed their food. We did not order drinks because there is no cocktail on earth worth $20 and no one in my party was a wine drinker. Water suited us just fine and we went elsewhere for drinks after. They really did a fabulous job on the asparagus and the steaks were cooked perfectly.

Restaurant adds tip into your bill automatically, so one you order dessert, no service nor server on site anywhere. I understand that they might want to rush you out, but we ran out of our drinks and took another 30 minutes to get out bill after we had to pull passing person to ask for a bill. Great place, but wouldn't go there again due to a lack of service.
