The food was pretty good despite the portion size. I ordered the octopus, filet mignon (well done), and chocolate lava cake for dessert. The waiters were very attentive and the view was nothing short of breathtaking. My only concern was regarding the Miami Spice Menu. I made a 6 party reservation weeks in advance for my birthday dinner and specified that we'll be utilizing the Miami Spice menu. Upon our arrival, we were notified that only a maximum of 4 people can take advantage of this deal. I then asked if our party could be split into two tables next to each other to take advantage of this deal. I was told by the hostess and manager that it was impossible to have two tables near each other being that they usually have so many reservations each night. Two of my guests then decided to order from the restaurants primary menu and we all sat together. What was a little upsetting was that the restaurant wasn't busy and we were surrounded by empty tables the entire night. This gave me reason to believe the manager just didn't want to give us the discount. I've been to several restaurants within the same week with larger parties and we all utilized the Miami Spice menu with no problem.My suggestion: If it is such a big deal, perhaps Gianni's shouldn't be a participant at all.

Service and atmosphere were delightful but the food was meager and disappointing. The amount paid just to take our photo in front of the fountain was not worth it. If you must go, go for one cocktail, maybe a dessert and then leave.

Miami spice was great! I went twice. The second time I went it was a better experience. We arrived an hour after our reservation and were seated right away. The first time we went we arrived at 8:45pm the time of our reservation however we weren't seated till 10:15pm. We definitely learned our lesson. Arrive later and you'll be seated faster.

We were in Miami Beach for the weekend, so we had to get some local food on one night, so we hit another place, but wanted to do something else local. Found out that they converted Gianni Versace's mansion into a hotel / restaurant, so we had to check it out. It's a great spot, right on Ocean Ave, and in a beautiful spot. The property was amazing, but the food and the included 22% service charge (most of Miami Beach is usually 18% included, so this was just more on top of that!) - just didn't quite line up. It was fine - but nothing to write home about. That, in addition to the poor air conditioning, it was not the most comfortable dining experience. We were seated in the dining room next to the pool, and it was a square room with no noise suppression - and two loud tables of young women in the room, it was a bit difficult to even talk to my date across the table without yelling. That being said - if you're into fashion or looking for a unique restaurant along Ocean Ave - definitely check out the menu, and if it strikes your fancy, go for it - just know what you're getting into! I won't go back on my own, but if I go back there with someone interested in going to Gianni's, I'll go gladly!

Gianni's was a great experience however, the hostess were so unprofessional. My reservation was @ 8:30 P.M and i wasn't seated until 10 P.M. When I spoke to them about the long wait they stated that the reservation was to only enter the restaurant and not to be seated. I explained that it was my birthday and I really traveled far for such a special night and but they didn't try to be accommodating. They also blamed the wait on the rain and having to move people inside but there was a man that came in the restaurant almost an hour after me and was seated before me because he was a "VIP" and needed to be bumped at the top of the list. This was absolutely unfair because he wasn't a celebrity and was spending the same money I intended to spend. The food was okay and our waiter was nice but this definitely affected my birthday.

Upset that we listed it was my 50th Birthday on our reservation and although we got an incredible table, not one person wished me a Happy Birthday or was I given a dessert or any type of celebration. Really disappointing considering I chose to celebrate my 50th here. :(

The food and service were excellent, wine list very good...a great dining experience. We ordered drinks and took a tour of the property. The decor is detailed and architecture well preserved. The rooftop terrace views of the Atlantic add to the already first class experience. The historical value is both very cool and sad for those of us who appreciate fashion.
