Theres no point to make an reservation because if has people before you they have to be deated fist obviously i had reservations for 845 i eas seated on by 920 overall the put us all thw way on the back which is fine to me but it took long time also to the waitresses to come by and all the time you have to ask for water if you dont buy a bottle also the food wasnt good as i expected to be also the staff doesnt seem to be all on track as it suppose to. Now with covid we understand all the problems that it could happen with timing but not with simple things like serving basics some new management is needed for sure

I’ve been wanting to dine @ Fiola Mare for years! I was so disappointed by my dining experience. 😞 The food was underwhelming and way overly-priced for dishes that lack tremendously in their depth-of-flavor. The lobster ravioli, they’re signature dish was not tasty and you pay $55 for TWO ravioli!! Seriously 😳. I would not recommend.

Christos and Alexandre provided amazing service and Giuseppe was incredibly welcoming. This is a team worth getting to know as they are very genuine. The food is fantastic and the drinks are unique and delicious too. Fiola Mare is going to become one of our go-to places for dining.

This was the best experience in all the years we’ve been going to Fiola Mare. We got 4 apps - eggplant, ahi, hamachi, burrata- and followed it up with 2 entrees. The salmon was perfect and accompanied with sea salt and salsa verde. The squid fussil w octopus was wonderful. The custard with cherries and figs was not too sweet but full of flavor. Service was spectacular.

Food was very good. Service was good. Prices are unnecessarily high. No reason for a fish stew/brodeto to to cost $60 dollars with one scallop and one large shrimp some calamari and fish.

Very disappointed in my second visit. The restaurant is overpriced and underserved. The food was really good, but service terrible. The waiter hardly came around to ask if eberything was good or at least to make us feel cared. He was also rude.
Spending $$$$ at this restaurant is reckless.

Fiola Mare provides a great atmosphere for celebrating special occasions. The food, the cocktails, and the presentation were excellent. My only complaint would be that the tiramisu didn't taste like it had any liquor flavors in it. The Campfire desert, though, was really something else.

Had made advance Resevation to eat outside next to the river. Was kept waiting for 1 hour and 10 minutes being told in the last interval there were setting our table, 10 minutes later told they had given it to a pregnant woman.
20 minutes later - 2 hours after our reservation took a compromise set “inside” with no view.

Very disappointing experience for my wife’s birthday celebration.

Overall start: 3 ⭐️

Parking: no parking available in the area. You will need to find a garage parking nearby or Uber (preferred)

Service: For an upscale restaurant, I was dissatisfied with their service.

Reason: I reserved a table a week ahead of time. Due to covid, their website states that online reservation is requieres. They will charge you $100 if you decide to cancel within 48hours.

Wait time: Reserved time was 9pm but we didn’t get a table until 10:30 pm. I also requested outdoors seating. I was informed outdoor seating was an addition hour wait.

Food/Drinks: The food and cocktails were fine but by the time we were served our food, I was upset and didn’t really enjoy it.

Ambiance/Noise Level: The ambiance is nice, and noise level what you would expect a fancy restaurant.

We made our 8PM reservation for outdoor seating 6 weeks in advance, arrived 20 minutes early and were seated around 8:35PM. During our wait, we were told we were going to be seated next & that a table within eyeshot was being cleared for us only to see another party who arrived at 8:10 be seated in that very table. After seeing this, rather than leave we agreed to be seated indoors and then once seated, my wife ordered her favorite dish, lobster ravioli, to be told they just ran out. We were not the only patrons to wait well beyond their reservation time and the host, hostesses and staff acted as if we should be fortunate to be able to have dinner there. I would expect far more from a restaurant that I purchased gift cards to support them during the Covid-19 forced closure, have eaten at many times before and chosen to host company events at before.

I made reservations about a week in advance for my birthday. When we arrived, they told me they couldn't find my reservation and kind of shooed me away. I showed them my confirmation and they still were unable to help me. I talked to three hostesses until I finally got to the manager. After waiting for about an hour and talking to four different people, the manager found my reservation. I put a couple of special requests in my reservation, but they were ignored because they just wanted to seat us anywhere they could. The food was fine. The service wasn't great.

Took 40 minutes to be seated with a reservation. Seemed very unorganized. Portion size has gotten smaller post Covid. Seems the same at most restaurants. Either have to raise prices or cut portion size. Covid safety fee is discriminatory. Should be based on party size not on the amount of the check. Food was good.

It was our 20 year anniversary and after making reservations a week in advance, we were immediately seated outside with a view next to the check in podium overlooking the vehicle drop off. The sun was extremely hot that day and was very uncomfortable as it was either hitting my face or blazing on my husband’s back. Not a very romantic mood. We asked to be seated with a waterfront view, and they were not able to accommodate as those seats were all occupied. We were given the option for indoors, but with Covid concerns, we politely declined. The host never gave us an opportunity to wait for a first available waterfront table, as we would have gladly waited. Albeit given horrible seats and atmosphere, we opted to stay and try to enjoy the moment. Being a fine dining establishment, the customer service was very disappointing as they knew it’s was our anniversary. Despite the poor first experience, the food along with our waitress was outstanding, and so while it didn’t make for the poor ambiance, hopefully our next visit will be a more pleasurable experience.

Beautiful restaurant, well situated with a view of the water and passers by. Our server, Alex was very gracious and helpful while respecting our privacy. Great safety precautions for staff and guests without being burdensome. Wear masks when addressing staff. Order all courses at one time to minimize interactions. Still, glasses are filled, staff checks in. And the food / delicious. Lobster ravioli for me and ?? With clans fir my husband. Appetizers also well presented and equally good. The only drawback is the wine by the glass. I think $20 is excessive.
