Went here to celebrate a friends birthday in early May. Was told that 'You go for the presentation and the atmosphere.' Clearly, they were right, here's my list of good and bad Baron G's SoBe Miami. Good: In the middle South Beach, the place where celebrities play and the affluent live. Restaurant had a get vibe, lot of energy and people dressed to kill (I recommend you dress the same, dressy and fashionable). Romantic lighting, lots of creams, pinks and browns in the decor. Enjoyed taking pictures by the wall of flowers, a place you go to for an special occasion. Nitro bar drink to just about all entrees come out on these oversized plates with doodads and other nonscence things. For instance if you order the chicken entree, your chicken comes out with a, guess what? A chicken! How original I know. So sarcasm aside here is a list of bad. Bad: Parking is a joke in SoBe to began with, so image a Saturday night. Word of advice, pay $15 for valet parking instead, will save you time. Restaurant is on the small side, there were times where I felt I could reach over and take something off my neighbors plate with ease. Elbows touching others elbows, a bit too cramped for my taste. I hated, absolutely the plate critters on every entree, they where a bit ostentatious for me. It made me feel like I was at a kids restaurant, oversized toys on our plates I think cheapen the whole experience. The menu reminded me of what is known as casual dine. That's food that is kid friendly like chicken, potato fries, tater tots, short ribs macaroni and cheese. I ordered the lobster Mac n cheese based off of the online reviews and was greatly disappointed. The lobster bits felt like chew rubber, the cheese topping was so thick I had to use a steak knife to cut through it. Felt like the food was a BIG missed opportunity for a 4 star restaurant. The same food at TGIFridays for half the cost, wasn't impressed at all. Expect to pay for the presentation for sure and the location, don't expect anything more. If your a real foodie nut like I am, you probably should skip out on Baron G's.
