 (Miami)·Dined 3 days ago

Went for Valentines Day, and the service was just absurdly slow. Not that I was in a hurry, but if you've been seated, It's not acceptable under any circumstances to have your first sip of wine be thirty minutes after. It was 9:30 PM, and I think the whole staff had pretty much "had it" by then and appeared to be completely exhausted. Place looked terrific, really done up well. But they cut the music early, took forever to get out the food, and when it arrived, it was prepared incorrectly. I feel like the waiter never really listed to a word I said. And then they throw a 22% gratuity on top of it. I paid it and didn't mention it, but I'm a far better tipper on good service than that, and this type of service (that really deserved no tip) I would usually scale down to 15% (I could never leave no tip). The appetizer was terrific, but steaks were awful, even sending one back. No manager came to check on us, which surprised me especially since we sent something back to the kitchen. Really, they could have cared less if we were there or not, and it showed in the service levels and the quality of food presented to us.

My husband and I went for Valentine’s day. I could say that if you want a romantic place this is the one. I guess everyone there came for the place not the food. The food was just passable. Nothing to rave about but like I said before? The romantic atmosphere, the guy playing the saxophone made up for the fair tasting food,

I really wanted to doubt it, I really wanted to give them a chance but it’s a sad tourist trap. But that’s the neighborhood. Pop by for the view and drinks but don’t expect much. Getting a good service is a lottery .
Dirty water glasses (replaced by a wine glass when pointed out!),dirty table cloth, no butter knife, unkind greeting at the entrance (agressive question ‘do you have a reservation), unkind and mediocre table service (at least the one person who was serving us, we could compare as we saw and heard way better multiple times, at every other table), should I mention dirty uniform?
Furctgecgirdt time in US I met a waiter whi doesnt know What „à point” means.he really doesnt enjoy his job.

22% service fee added by definition but deserved only by the kitchen (except for The microwaved berries, c’mon whole foods is just a few blocks away) and hostess. If they try to put you in a room inside- just leave. Seriously not worth it. You will miss the only thing worth your money in Gianni’s. We planned a nice, long dinner with wine. Due to the way we were treated right from the start we skipped wine, drinks as kept it short as we were not enjoying it at all. +200$ later we happily left and enjoyed the rest of the night away from south beach.

I could continue but they are not worth anymore of my time
It’s just sad what’s going on there.

Just as a tip - if you have a brave guy who plans to propose to a women on her BDay, don’t put him in a far, awful corner inside.

Actually seeing this couple was the nicest part of the experience there.

I went for my birthday and it was by far one of my favorite birthdays. Everything I had off the menu was amazing. The ambiance was perfect. The staff was lovely. If I ever go back to Miami I will definitely make reservations again.

I was extremely disappointed by Gianni’s. I regularly frequent high-end restaurants but the value of this restaurant is sub par. The portions are laughably small and the service was terrible. To give you an idea of how absurdly priced this restaurant is, we were charged $50 for water.

Amazing Experience. We came to Gianni’s for our anniversary. I was expecting the house to be amazing but was worried that the food experience might be lacking. I was incredibly surprised to find the food experience to match the beautiful surroundings. The menu was solid, the prices were reasonable for the quality and the experience and the service couldn’t have been better. This dining experience was one of my overall favorites.

Dining here was such a nice experience. The house is beautiful, plain and simple. We were seating at a table on the side, near the pool. It was nice to not be in the mix with everyone else, but we still had a great view. The space just spectacular to be in. The food did not disappoint either. Everything we tried was very delicious.

 (Miami)·Dined on February 9, 2018

Obwohl wir einen Tisch reservier hatten, mussten wir knapp 15min draussen warten - haben dann keinen Tisch im Innenhof bekommen, dafür in einem separaten Raum, der nur mit zwei 2er Tischen besetzt war, wieso 15min warten?
Der Kellner war massiv überfordert, vergesslich und total abwesend.
Hatten noch NIE solch eine schlechtes Serviceerlebnis - anfangs fanden wir es lustig, aber dann wurde es mühsam. Mussten vier mal das gewünschte Essen angeben, obwohl der Kellner alles aufschrieb.
Wasser und Wein wurde nie eingeschenkt, Tische der Nachbarn mit Teller und Essensreste wurden nach über 30min abgeräumt.
Vorspeise und Pasta ok, Fleisch im Hauptgang für $ 64.- exkl. Taxen und 22% Trinkgeld war katastrophal, wirklich unbeschreiblich schlecht.
Schade, dass in so einer schönen Location der Service und Qualität unterirdisch war.
Für dieses Geld gibt’s viel bessere Restaurants

The property is beautiful the meal is horribly.
Went there for my daughter's birthday
The 2 steak dinners we recieved were awful.my steak was rate I order well done
And I pulled out a long vein out of the meat
Never happened to me before.
My daughter's steak she ordered medium
And also was still rare.
Both steaks had lots of blood on the plate.
Did not complain and staff looked at the plates and smiled. What a horrible experience and we are from Canada and spend 4 months Dimond in Florida.
The owners need to wake up and learn how to run a restaurant.
Paid the bill with the included tip
Never to go back again
Went to a place called Barton G had a great meal for her birthday and food was great

Absolutley stunning venue. Service was impeccable however I felt the food was nothing out of the ordinary. However still worth paying just to be able to see inside the Versace mansion. Maybe just for an appertiser and couple of drinks.

Me and my wife went there to celebrate our 3 year anniversary. As we entered everything was great, the hostess took us to our table from where we could admire the beautiful decor in silence. Our waiter came to take our order, not being very knowledgeable of the specials( I mean for the hype you would expect top notch service). My wife is a food and beverage manager for a big restaurant group so we get to go to a couple restaurants in NYC. We ordered appetizers (burata and prosciutto) that came with some stale grisinni. Our drinks arrived after 10 min from us finishing our appetizers. In between the entree and appetizers our waiter forgot about us, taking an order at another table that was very loud and you could hear them yealling at each other in their mother language all over the court yard. Our entrees came after 20 more min of us starring at each other and we’re kind of meh. My wife’s pasta alla chittara that was recomended by our waiter was plain spaghetti marinara and my steak that I ordered medium rare came way overly cooked, barely some pink in the middle. After we finished our food and we were kinda done with the noisy people too, our waiter picked up our plates with no interest why we barely ate our food. Also asked for rye Manhattan that was over charged on our bill (Manhattan cocktail + bourbon) sorry our waiter did not know that maker’s mark is not rye. He took of the overcharge but didn’t even exchange my drink for what I asked after me barely touching it. Our bill came and we knew what to expect giving the prices! And had the gratuity included so that’s when we figured out why our waiter gave us no attention since he was getting his money anyway!! We payed And left without making any fuss but would never return and neither recommend, since all our friends asked us how it was!! The best thing was the views and a stray cat walking between the dinner tables and scratching her back on the fake grass begging for a little some some. Dissapointed!
