Nice restaurant, good for a one time experience but the food is overpriced. I loved the ambiance and the service was amazing. Overall you’re paying for your food to be served on props and an experience.

I booked this reservation 2 months prior for my Birthday celebration, and for the service you'd think i was a walk in. We were seated next to the kitchen and were constantly being walked by and stood behind as the waiters gathered things for their table. There wasn't enough table space so me and my Husband had to look around the food props to speak to each other, when i bought this to my servers attention she stated after all the reservation had been completed she'd add another table as if we weren't a reservation ourselves, we didn't get another table until dessert .The restaurant was so busy that we'd have to wait 30 minutes at a time to request additional items such as additional drinks or condiments needed. I was displeased with my food choice but couldn't alert my waiter because she was busy with other tables so i just took my food to go. I was happy with the presentation but not the service a Birthday ruined and 320.00 down the drain.

My experience at Barton G was horrible. The hostess was very rude. I made reservations for 9:30pm and I didn’t get a table until 10:50pm. The music was loud and obnoxious. It sounded like a bar instead of a upscale restaurant. The food was nasty. I feel like they pay more attention to the presentation of the food, then the actual food.

Horrible. If you actually have a palate, care about what you eat, and want your food to have finesse, this is not the place for you. This place is a show but the sad part is that the kitchen can’t back it up. With so many fantastic dining options Miami, I am surprised that this place hasn’t stepped up their food game. In short — a complete waste of time and a big disappointment. The trashy crowd, ridiculous dishes, and overpriced menu didn’t help. Won’t be back.

The food and drinks were delicious and we loved the over the top presentations. The service was just ok, I have had better. The table was not big enough for the presentations. I was the birthday girl, and I had to take my Jambalaya off the fish so we could fit everything on the table. They need larger tables so you can be comfortable eating. It was 4 of us.

Hands down the absolute worst dining experience. Even with reservations we were sat in a busy walk way. The noise and bad seating had us request to go outside and that was a huge mistake. I enjoy dining outdoors and have never had a time where i was eaten alive by bugs. It was all just awful. Go to a much more classy establishment where there prices match the service!!

It is a fun Miami Beach experience. This is not a place for people who consider themselves "foodies" but the food is good and you get plenty. The only negative was the promise that there would be sparklers and singing Happy Birthday for my husband's birthday - they had a small candle and that was it. I would not care if I was not told on the phone "you have to pay for dessert but we will provide sparklers and celebration".

If you’re not familiar with the area and you’re looking for a nice dining experience, do not come here. The reviews are very disproportionate to what this place is really like. If you have kids or are easily amazed by presentation than you will probably like it here. If you’re looking for good quality food, keep scrolling. The food is comparable to Planet Hollywood- I honestly would prefer Applebee’s to this place. It’s a gimmick restaurant with poor quality of food.

We had a good experience..It’s nice to go for a special occassion, but I dont see myself going back anytime soon... The restaurant is way over priced, food presentation is fun, but not a place you would go to frequently.. Food was good... Inside was so noisy, we were lucky and were seated outside..

NEVER AGAIN...The pictures and word of mouth led me to BG but the lack of service will keep me (and everyone in our party of 10) from coming back.

Outrageously expensive and the waitress did not even bother to ask if it was our first time or explained ANYTHING on the menu. Her only advice was to "wait until the smoke stops before drinking nitro drinks"

Plenty of alternatives are available and BG won't miss us as they were packed anyway.

It was a birthday celebration. Food was good but when on the phone to inform it’s a birthday celebration, the restaurant representative stated, “you will be charged for the birthday dessert, but the birthday sparklers are complimentary”. I understand The notifying of the dessert charge but informing me the sparklers are “complimentary” is tacky!!

Like an Alice in Wonderland Sensory adventure for Adults. The dimly lit restaurant led to the suspense of what would unfold during our evening. The drinks were considered pricey to some but by far presentation and a generous pour put any question on libation prices to bed. Everything was over the top in a fabulous visual way until you took a bite and then it was a flavorful Fourth of July fireworks display in your mouth. The portions are as generous as the smiles on our faces the entire night. It was difficult to have deep conversations as you get easily distracted with noise and what’s going on around you. They do allow children which is a shame as this should truly be an adult fantasy of returning to carefree days. Standing ovation to the Barton G from the entrance to exit of our evening it was magical!

Fun restaurant! Come for the creative and hilarious presentations of the food; but keep coming back for the deliciousness. Our server was knowledgeable, professional and efficient. I had the lobster pop tart as an appetizer and the sea bass for the entree-both were fantastic. The cocktails (tho spendy) were perfect. This place is expensive but you get great food, a fun time and the ‘Barton G experience.’ We go every time we’re in Miami.

The quantity of food was not worth the money. Seems the restaurant is more concerned with the presentation of how they bring the food out rather than giving your monies worth. It was more about the experience than the quantity. I will not return or recommend.

Fun place! Def must go to experience dinner in a unique way! Wish we had known how large the portions were, we could have easily shared meals, instead we each ordered our own entrees and barely made a dent in them after eating appetizers. Hate the wasted food and wasted money. But a fun experience and everything was tasty!

Very disappointed! Although its a local restaurant we have not returned in over 10 years and will not be returning again. Tables for two are too close together, servers are not personable and menu prices are over the top for the level of service. Food was okay but all show and not quality.
