Great venue but standoffish service

The venue is fantastic and unique, and the food good, but the service lets this place down a bit. It is a pricey restaurant and the service sometimes made one feel unwelcome. We didn't - for example - want water for the table and this was met with obvious surprise (despite hydrating with Martinis... read more

Located inside the Versace mansion, the interior and decor is stunning. The food was excellent. However, the service was very lackluster. One would think that dining inside the Versace mansion would come with a high level of service. You have the option of still or sparkling water, however our refills were just whichever bottle was in reach. There was a... More

Il Sole was a great experience. The service, the food and of course the venue are superb. We were hesitant at first as SoBe has turned into a tourist disaster but this was a very pleasant surprise. Chef Thomas was very personable and meeting him topped off a great evening. He has a unique flair and its obvious he is... More

So I stupidly think that arranging a nice birthday meal for my husband while we were on our honeymoon was a good idea Il Sole completely ruined our evening. The bouncer made us wait outside as they couldn't 'find' the hostess. We went into the bar where the barman was busy pouring shots for a group of drunk people. My... More

5 stars for the architecture and design plus being able to see where Gianni Versace once lived. 1 star for the staff; they are uneducated and need to google Gianni Versace to be able to tell their guests a little about the property! Good thing I brought my phone to do my own research while we waited for our dinner.... More

If you visit Sobe and your an Art lover you must see the Versace mansion. The mosaic tiles are breath taking. There is outdoor seating by the pool. We ordered the pasta dish and it was very good ,along with the salad. I did not care for the red snapper.It was small and bland. My friend and I split all... More

This is a unique experience that is worth while. Il Sole is in Gianni Versace home, formerly called casa Casuarina. When you arrive, there is valet parking almost in front of the house and it have a handicap ramp on the side to get in the house. You must have reservations to get in. Once inside, the place is a...

Was a great experience to eat in luxurious setting. We were allowed to walk around down stairs afterwards and the staff took pictures for us. Do not agree with reviews saying not good service. The service is of a quality you get in fine dining restaurants in the UK. It is not over the top American service, go to hooters... More
