Amazing Service with superb delivery. The art they display with the meals is one in a kind! Fun for any dinner event. We personally celebrated a birthday however for business, date, family and more would be lots of fun! Thank you Barton G for an Amazing Experience!

Not impressed - overpriced valet service ($17 cash only); sewage odor outside restaurant upon arrival; interior looked outdated and tables very close to each other. Food presentations were good but too pricey and limited options. Looks like their specialty is the presentation of their dishes and their cocktails. Heard so much about how great it is and was very disappointing. Even the note on dressing smart casual is misleading since most people were casual and it looked like an old restaurant out of the 70s,

30+ years in Miami and never experienced Barton G’s. Decided to take loved ones for a belated birthday celebration. Check in was simple and quick. Host staff was friendly. Seating for three was adequate but as we looked around we saw the two person tables would’ve been much more challenging for the elaborate presentations. Happy we had the third person.

Waiters/Waitresses/Busboys and girls all warm and friendly.

Knew the locale was pricey food and beverages not your Norm. All items ordered drink wise were delicious but again a little expensive for amount received. $20 a much better price point but then again if you did the reservation you knew what to expect.

Was so much fun to watch all the crazy presentations. Very unique and exciting. Oooo what’s that? And that? That poor server we drove her nuts.

Decided on the bass and steaks. Apps were the popcorn shrimp and BBQ brisket. Amazing. Sides included mash potatoes, asparagus, some truffle fries, mushrooms and the Most amazing lobster Mac n Cheese.

Couldn’t finish it all so took some home. Desert was the camp fire. Also delicious. How much for all this?

With mandatory 18% gratuity (not enough for all the heavy lifting) meal for 3 was $800. So come prepared. Even if you are just two and want 1 drink a piece an app an entree and a dessert, expect a $350 plus bill.

Very cool place will do again for my sister. She loves that stuff.

Made a reservation for our daughters birthday party 2 wks prior. We were sat outside, asked for inside, but they couldn’t accommodate us. Very fun, unique, wild presentations. That’s what you’re paying for. Food was good, but not great. It’s all about the presentations. Very fun for my daughter and her friends.

Very disappointing. So many kids it was like an upscale Chucky Cheese. Music was way too loud. Could not even hear the server over Michael Jackson's "Beat It" blaring so loud! Very dimly lit with menu printed on a darker colored paper. And before your meal, you receive one small breadstick per person. Thought this was a joke.
Their version of presentation is not the same as mine. (See pictures)
Had surf & turf for 2 at $185. Ribeye was just ok. Lobster tail was prepared well. Didnt stick around for dessert.
Was really looking forward to this place. Sadly I wont be back.

The service was good. The food was good but my mash potatoes and veggies were tad on the cold side although the short rib was delicious and warm. Overall the experience was good. Music may be a bit loud but I liked the music choices so that was ok. For my 10 year old daughter’s birthday it was perfect. The plates are always very cool.

I took my boyfriend here for his birthday this past weekend. We were very excited to go. We were sat outside, without being asked, but we didn’t want to be difficult. Our waiter rushed us for everything. It was our first time here, as we were reading the menu he kept coming by to dryly ask if we were ready. We didn’t feel as though he wanted to help us. We actually enjoyed the bus-boy more than our waiter, he checked in on us and was excited with us for our extravagant presentations. The food? Mediocre, at best. Unseasoned and seemed a bit under cooked. Dessert was nice but we had already lost our appetite. We won’t be returning. The place is definitely over rated. If anything, you’re going for the pictures to post on instagram.

I dinner at Barton G with my family (family vacation). It’s always amazing, the food, the dishes presentation, the drinks...everything. Every time I came to Miami, I guarantee my table. Everyone should go once in this restaurant for the experience.

the table is is too small for our orders with all the presentations. too pricey, you’re paying more to presentation than the food. No birthday singing. the server just placed the candle on top of the whipping cream not being lighted. too close to the next table.

I really enjoyed the bucket of bones last year and it still shows on their online menu. We get there and it’s been discontinued 2 months ago. We ordered the Surf and Turf and were told it’s any steak plus a lobster tail. Steaks are around $45 , the surf and turf was $165. That’s outrageous, they should tell you when they present the specials. The food was good and the presentations lots of fun. But they rushed the food as if they wanted us out and needed the table. We were there last year for my birthday and I was excited to return. Next year we will try something else. I was very disappointed.

You don’t come here for amazing food or value. The food is very good but the presentation and shock value is what you’re paying for, and it’s worth it.

The food and service at Barton G during this past time visit were excellent as usual. However, the ambiance left much to be desired. It was, in fact, like being trapped in a darkened theatre with loud, shrieking noises in the seats. Barton G is fun for a first date with all the theatrics around the food and the noise level covering any gaps in conversation. It’s also fun for a get together with friends, sort of an adult Chuck E Cheese. However, if you plan to use your visit to catch up with visiting family or old friends, save yourself the cost and frustration.
