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.

I recommend Gianni's for its unparalleled ambience and popular brand recognition. However, the food is not satisfactory in quantity for the price, though the quality is superb. I highly suggest reserving a slot at approximately 6:00-6:30 P.M. to ensure that one experiences the truly gorgeous seating by the gilded pool.

everything about this venue is excellent but i had to give the service only 3 stars because i put in a request to have 2 glasses of champagne at my table with rose pedals in the shape of a heart prior to my arrival and i called the day before to confirm my reservation and make sure that they were aware of my request and i was assured that everything would be taken care of and it was not. there was no champagne at my table and no rose pedals but besides that the venue was excellent.
