I really enjoyed the atmosphere. Food was good and service as well. The only problem i had was me and my sister split the bill and the waiter charged everything on one card and pocket the other half that was paid in cash. That’s definitely not a good look!!

Tourist trap with awful food and terrible service, avoid unless you worship at the Versace altar and want to see the mansion. It was the worst dining experience I have ever had.

Had an amazing ambiance.
I did feel extremely out of place but probably because I am not used to fine dinning.
The waiter eventually stopped serving us water once he figured we wouldn't be ordering anything else which was in my opinion distasteful. It felt like the servers only prefer to deal with clients whom spend more money there. The portions are SMALL.

All you need to know is that a shrimp cocktail costs $42 after the mandatory tax and tip charges. Building is beautiful but the food is average and the price is ridiculous.

Food and service were fine. The evening was marred by the scantily clad tourists clamoring past tables to have photos taken by the pool. Would recommend dining on the terrace to avoid the constant interruptions.

Amazing setting. Sat right next to the pool/fountain. Service was okay, nothing amazing. Food is way overpriced. You're obviously paying for the name/location/ambiance. My boyfriend got a ribeye steak - $60 and I got the Gnocchi - $35 (such a small portion) and we shared a side of vegetables - $12. Waters to drink. That's it. Our bill was about $145 (which included 22% automatic gratuity and taxes). Go for the pictures and romantic setting, not the food. And definitely request to be as close to pool as possible.

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.

Very impressed with the food. Absolutely delicious! I was not expecting it to be that good. The whole environment was amazing. However, our server was very serious & uptight. He seemed as if he didn’t want to serve us since we were only a party of two. We tried to make him smile & he just didn’t. Will recommend.

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.

One of a kind experience!!! Chef Thomas is AMAZING; his culinary ingenuity, presentation and taste are unmatched!! The Gianni Versace house is an historic wonder in and of itself. And then on top of visiting the beautiful Versace house, to then to be able to sit down to dine inside, drink fine wine and spirits and taste immaculate and delicious courses from amuse-bouche to dessert is heavenly.

If you don't DO Gianni's, you have NOT done Miami/South Beach!!!

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.

This is a truly romantic and beautiful setting in one of Miami's most iconic buildings. It feels really special walking through the steps. Service was very average, with some long waits, and not particularly memorable, but we really did enjoy the menu. The restaurant is quite overpriced, but really you are paying for the venue, and personally I think it is worth it.

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.
