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.

It was very over the top, but a salad, a steak, and a drink should not cost upwards of $150.

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.

The only reason to go is for the presentation. Food is below par. Very pricey for the low grade food!

I had a reservation for 9:45pm, and was a few mins late. The staff let me know the kitchen was closing at 10. It was my birthday and Christmas eve and they were kind enough to give us 15 extra mins to order, which was very much appreciated. The staff was kind and service was good and fast.

Cool concept but not worth the price. Also the presentation takes over the whole table making it difficult to eat and enjoy food. Would not recommend this for a couple. Maybe a group of people.. but very pricey .

It’s a one and done dining experience.Yes they have a great presentation of overpriced mediocre food but once you see the theatrics after 5-10 minutes the WOW is OVER!!! The $17 parking fee on top of a bill that is hundreds of dollars is offensive! My 15 year old daughter wanted to go so we took her, Never Again!
