We asked our concierge for a restaurant that was "out of the ordinary" and "different" and he immediately said Barton G. was the place for us. We got there at 6:45 and the place was nearly empty. We were asked if we wanted to sit inside or outside and we chose the latter because it was such a nice night. We were than promptly seated and were given iPads that had the menu on them. Our waitress came over to us and explained it a bit. She told us about the "nitro-tinis". Those were cocktails (or lemonades) that had liquid nitrogen in them so they would smoke and stay cold longer. We got the "diamonds are forever" one and a kids lemonade. After that, we ordered our meal. We got the swordfish, "gizmo chicken", "lobster pop-tarts", and the chopped salad. Each of them were amazing and served on very amusing plates. The swordfish was served on a plate with a giant plastic fish standing up about 2 feet tall. The chicken was served on a plate with a junk sculpture of a chicken (hence the gizmo part). The lobster pop-tarts were served in a giant plastic toaster. The swordfish was nicely spiced and very moist. The chicken was very juicy and had a really amazing au jus that had various spices and honey in it. The pop-tarts were a flaky puff pastry with gruyere cheese and plenty of lobster.

We had funnelcakes for dessert, a delicious carnival treat, I won't spoil the surprise for the kids on this one.

The ambiance is nice in the garden, there were many failies but also quiet corners for couples, leafy and cool.

The price is outrageous, so do it for a splurge, we thought it was worth it. I would disagree with the other reviewers, that although the restaurant is heavy on presentation, the food is indeed equally good.

A very fun place to eat with family and friends. Somewhat pricey and food might not live up to the price but very fun and experience makes up for the food. Would recommend.

This place is pretty amazing, pretty expensive too. But I believe everyone has to go here at least once. The drink are awesome and the food is to die for, especially the presentation. But of course save room for dessert. TRUST ME.

I went here for my 3 year anniversary dinner with my boyfriend, and would love to come back. Had the "one potato, two potato" which includes Salmon with quinoa and green beans. But trust me, the taste is so ridiculously amazing.

But I dont want to spoil the fun for you. All I can say is the bill may come out to be 200 dollars, but the memories and experience you will always keep with you.

This place has a special way of making the food and drinks fun. it was a little pricey for some items but food, but was worth checking-out as memorable experience. martinis, deserts and appetizers were better than main course.
