When we got there, they tried to seat us outside. It had been raining all day and it was very humid. But after going back and forth they allowed us to eat inside. That should be an option when you make reservations. The place is small. And they have too many tables for the props. The music was really loud and I couldn't hear the waiter. And they rush you which I didn't like. But the food was good and I loved the props. Great for photos. I would go back. I want to try Vegas. I think it would be better.

Fantastic experience. The presentation is second to none and food was excellent. The wait staff was attentive and frequented the table. There was never a time where we lacked anything. There aren't many restaurants where one is encouraged to stare at what your neighbors are eating and drinking, but Barton G is the exception. So much so that little communities organically spring up in neighboring tables as patrons begin to marvel at the presentation and talk about what they ordered. Just a feel-good vibe.

When we first arrived the hostess told us that they have opened the upstairs dinning room due to weather, if we wanted to go upstairs that it was more intimate and less nosier, so we agreed. It was totally the opposite, it look like we were on a daycare, there was a table full of children screaming super noisy, music was super loud to the fact that we could not even hear the waiter. Waiter was screaming, the waiter even excused himself and went to speak to a manager to be able to lower the music. The atmosphere was terrible. We sat so close to another table that it was super uncomfortable.

Waiter came to take our order, we first order the appetizer, when the waiter brought the appetizer gave it to the table next to us, then he realized it and brought it to our table. When the waiter came to bring us the entrees, no one came to remove the appetizer plate, so waiter waited for someone to come to remove the appetizer plate because there was NO space to put the entrees plate.

No one came so he went to get someone at the bar by the time the waiter came back , then when back to get someone to remove the appetizer plate our entrees plate has traveled from the kitchen to the table, waited several seconds for someone to come and remove the appetizer plate back to the bar to get someone to remove the appetizer plate, then back to our table, food temperature not good. Food was ok not the my expectation, presentation was nice. That's all I can say. I did not have a good experience. I always wanted to go and have an amazing experience at Barton G. but I got so disappointed I will never recommend the place to anyone.

It's all about the experience at Barton G. That means, it's all about the presentation of the food, not about the quality of it nor the great customer service.
We had a reservation at 7:30, we where seated at 8:00pm. We had the Seafood Martini for $150. Presented in an over sized Martini glass. It was good but not nothing special. We ordered the Tomahawk steak $200 that was quite a disappointment. It was over done on the outside and completely raw in the inside but more than 75% was lumoy masses of fat. The steak was accompanied by blackened dried out fried yuca. The trap mac and cheese was ordinary. We closed out our dinner with The strawberry fields cake that was a poor rendition of a red velvet cake covered in a bland mouse frosting.
I think the best part of our meal where the martinis that are prepared with liquid nitrogen. It is awesome to have these, but at $50+ a drink.
Maybe our food choices were not the best, maybe, would feel differently with something else, but for a $700 bill for 2 people, I would have expected a lot better. In my opinion this is a once in a lifetime opportunity. You do it once and never again.

You're not coming here because its a Michelin star culinary experience, you're coming here because its experiential dining. Everything you order comes out in some sort of huge display and that's what makes it an experience. I also come for the Sabrinatini

Barton G. is an experience restaurant, this is NOT the place to go if you want quiet, romantic, good food. The food was average, my waitress was amazing (don't remember her name), and the restaurant was pretty small. If I could change something it would be the size of the tables to accommodate the theatrical way they serve the food.

Food as amazing, ambience was great and the plate presentation was incredible. You will have fun and amazing taste of food. Lighting is barely there so take your phone out to read menu. Prices a bit steep but I guess that's what you get for the presentation, experience and quality of food.

Waiter was not friendly and didn’t care for customer concerns. I order the cod, and the cod was not available was told the Maui fish will replace the cod and it be cooked and taste the same but once it came out it was hard as a brick. It was not tasty at all. And, once the waiter came I mentioned it to her, she apologized. Then asked was I finished with it, with me not eating anything, but the bite from tasting it. After that, asked did I want any dessert. WOW unbelievable. I was disgusted and ready to go. After receiving the receipt, I understand why because her 20% tip was already taking out.

Hi there, Sorry to hear you weren't satisfied with your visit. We do source fish based on availability from our suppliers so sometimes the type may vary. The server assumed you were unsatisfied with your dish and was offering you a dessert on the house. Automatic gratuity is added with larger parties. Sorry if that was not made clear prior to your reservation. Best, Barton G.

Visiting Miami from Toronto Barton G. was on the top of our to visit list. I was expecting the food to look fabulous and a fun environment. I was expecting the food to be good, but kept saying, it might not taste as good as it looks. BUT........Wow, the food, not only looked awesome, it tasted so damn good! And the portions were huge too, so big I didn't have enough room for dessert. I was so looking forward to dessert but just couldn't fit any more in. The staff were attentive and friendly. I had a lovely time, thank you!!

The Filet mignon was excellent. I found the extravagant displays that come with the food very cool but annoying and cumbersome not great if your dining with people and can't really see them over the displays. My suggestion bring them out and then take away so your guests can enjoy each other. I wanted to get one of your drinks with the smoke coming off of them looked very cool but 30 for drink not thanks, thats absurd. I also got a Cesar salad for 21.00 and a side of Mac and cheese for 23.00 which I've had better. I think its very pricey and not worth the money for the prices they charge. And a side note....I was sick all night after dinner. So overall not a great experience.

Been to the restaurant over 2 dozen times. Worst service ever. Appetizers were both cold. Told the waitress she did nothing about it. She also made a mistake on the entree order. Choice she gave to fix it wasn’t a choice couldn’t wait another 15 minutes for the proper steak that was ordered. Entrees as it was didn’t come out together. No apologies or concessions were made or offered. Done with Barton G’s a shame because it’s always been a favorite of mine when dining out on the beach.

Overall it’s my favorite place to eat down there because of the presentations. We went for my birthday and had a great time. The food was good Albiet expensive which is already to be expected just a drink is 32 for example. I don’t mind this as it’s such a fun place.

The only issues we had was the hostess tried to send the two of us in the middle table of the restaurant which I hate and it wasn’t very busy with plenty of side tables for two people so we asked to be moved and see did. Also the guy that took plates away as we were done was constantly rushing us and asking to take the plates before we were even done eating on each course. It was awkward and uncomfortable. No one wants to be rushed thru an almost 500 dollar birthday dinner. Since he was there so often, I asked him for another drink and he wasn’t friendly about it at all and said he doesn’t do that, the waitress does, without offering to get the waitress or tell her. He should work elsewhere.

The rest was great. Lobster pop tarts, filet mignon, lobster Mac and cheese, asparagus etc were delicious. But since we wanted to share the alcarte side dishes it would’ve made sense If they brought them out put them in the middle instead of putting it on our own individual plates and then us trying to figure out how to share it. We managed lol. Will be back for another special occasion I’m sure.
