    Love this place! Always a must have when out of towners are visiting! Service is great and food is amazing, that's hard to find in south beach!

    If you're looking to really pig out, try "Boarnie" Madoff's Bucket of Bones, a mix of beef & pork ribs, lamb chops, Apple BBQ chicken, and a caged/cuffed hog. Read more

    I had such a wonderful time for my birthday here. The presentations are so worth going for! The food was just as amazing! I had the porterhouse for two! I also ordered a sin-sation martini! 🍸👌

    Best of Miami 2013- Best Desserts: Barton G. Expensive and over the top? Yes. An ostentatiously delicious way to end a meal? Without a doubt. Try the Golden Funnel Cakes. Read more

    The food is fine, but the point of Barton G is showmanship and presentation. The meal is entertainment - lobster poptarts served in a toaster, a funnel cake with interactive carnival game. Fun fun fun

    Usually when the presentation is special it's because they're compensating for bad food, but here both were great. Try the sabritini cocktail!

    This place is really good. Great food presented in very original serving plates. Go on and start with the specialty drinks, they're smoking... Literally.

    It's more about the experience than the quality of the food. The presentation of the food is fun, unique and over the top. The prices are very high. The short rib was the best thing I had by far

    The service was great here and we really liked the food for the most part but feel we need to dissuade people from ordering the wagyu beef dish. It Is NOT wagyu.

    The place to visit while in Miami. The visit will be talked about for years to come. The presentation of every item; drinks to dessert, are magical. We eat here everytime in Miami.

    The swank, attractive surroundings; swank, attractive crowd; thoughtful wine list; alluring fare; and countless titillating details make Barton G the most daring restaurant on West Ave.

    Barton G. the restaurant packs 'em in, not necessarily for the cuisine, per se, but for presentations that would make PT Barnum and Walt Disney roll over in their graves. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    Quite possibly the best meal I've ever had - stunning presentation of all dishes and everything we had was delicious. If you're from the Midwest, skip the BBQ/fried chicken and go for the seafood.

    Best food, service & atmosphere I've experienced in Miami Beach. Casual dress welcome. Good portions. Liquid nitrogen cocktails. Fun surprises for b-days. Worth every penny! Highly recommended.

    If you like sweet martinis, try the Sabrinatini. Don't forget the chocolate! Then try the sashimi snocones, shrimp or salads. Short ribs are delish and save room for awesome desserts!

    Must get dessert. Most creative menu! They do ice cream like no one else – in an entire pint! And if you order a piece of cake, be warned: you get an ENTIRE cake!

    The desserts are almost as big as the table. When you order cake, you literally get an entire cake. And the ice cream comes in full branded Barton G. pints.

    Valet kept my key fob after a $10 trip and I had to drive back from Miami to get it. This has happened twice in 2 years,. The valet needs some work.
