Request for outdoors not honored. Horribly rude waiter. We were able to switch but no concern at all from management on any of this. Amazingly poor considering the prices.

Service was a little slow. It took much too long for the bread to be brought to the table.

WE expected the cost to be pricey, but we think it was way overpriced! $25 dollars for a glass of wine? We had gone there for our 54th wedding anniversary, but there was no acknowledgment of this occasion--not even a free glass of wine! We do not plan to return for our next anniversary. Also, the point system for cashing in points for $$ is very unfair. We had cashed in 10, 000 points for a $100 credit, but all restaurants we looked at only reimbursed $50. We feel this is system is very unfair.

WE would only recommend this restaurant for someone for whom price is no object.

Fiola Mare is outstanding as it always was. Now reopening after Covid shut down.
At any time given what it serves, it is outstanding value.
The lunches are a gift.

Our evening at Fiola Mare was fantastic! We had plenty of distance from other people, and the servers made sure to provide alcohol spray, virtual menus, baskets for our masks, and very sanitary practices. We felt quite safe eating here despite COVID-19! The server’s recommendations for drinks and entrees were also amazing, high quality, and exciting to try! As someone who loves to eat, the food was incredible, and my only complaint would be that the portion sizes are a bit small. However, that’s also pretty expected with expensive restaurants like this one. Still would give this place a 10/10 as I think most people do. Perfect for a romantic night out on the waterfront.

Was so nice to be on the Potomac with a lovely view, breeze and sunshine. The service was superb. They provided me a paper bag to place my mask in and then place in a basket to the side. They sanitized my credit card and pen when paying the bill. See my pics/video of menu and food I ordered. It couldn’t have been more perfect.

We went during phase 2 of DC's reopening so there was only outdoor seating which was fine. The tables were well spaced and they even provided paper bags to place our masks in. The service was amazing and the staff is friendly, we went to celebrate a birthday and they gave him a "Happy Birthday" card which was a cute touch. Now on to the food, while the food was good and tasty I don't feel that it matched the price points.

While the food was excellent, the value prop was a little less so. Prices were a little much for what was offered in some cases, less so in others.

On an unrelated note, the insistence on having names and phone numbers of all members of the dining party (with no option other than to dine elsewhere) felt a little heavy-handed. It was stated as "CDC requirements", but nowhere on the CDC site does it mention any guidance around collecting personal information. The DC phase 2 guidelines DO have something along these lines: "Reservations are encouraged and customers should provide names and contact information and
record time of arrival." Note that the operative word is "should" and not "must". That said the rule states that the establishment MUST retain those records for 30 days but makes no provision for securing the information.

We seriously considered dining elsewhere, but in the end decided to provide the information. FWIW, no ID was requested so fake info could have easily been provided - thus making the entire process of dubious value anyway.
