Service was beyond amateur hour. Ordered sparkling water so they bring tap, then replace that with mineral water. Order cocktails and mine never arrives despite other cocktail arrives as expected. Finally after five requests my cocktail arrives but they used incorrect vodka.

The large, well=spaced patio and other safety precautions made dining out a breeze (though I was surprised that they were still offering a tableside prepped chopped salad) and the food remains excellent. The lobster bolognese is particularly terrific.

I must say, this started off very slow (sat at our table without seeing a server or even being offered water for 53 full minutes... yes I timed it because I'm petty), but I'm chalking that up to getting back up and running post-quarantine.

But lemme tell ya, once the service started, I NEVER wanted this experience to end. The vibe is trendy/whimsical/goosebump-inducing, but the real star was the food. HOLY TRUFFLE CORN. Get the Grilled Corn w/ shaved truffle is what that means...The corn was a highlight for me, but we loaded up on drinks, apps, and entrees and every single thing made me want to cry in the best way.

I'm sad it took me this long to come here. I will be bringing anyone/everyone I can, but I'm going to be sure to bribe the host to take our drink order right when we sit down next time ;)

For the 4th of July we decided to try Fia! It was amazing all around, from the outdoor garden patio with twinkling lights to the wonderful service and the delicious food! I already want to go back. We ordered the focaccia bread to start which I recommend! The Jerusalem artichokes were very interesting and a bit too spicy for my liking. The octopus was a little chewy so that wasn’t our favorite. But the pastas were amazing! The mushroom truffle Cavatelli and the Duck Ragu tagliatelle were both so good! Also the chocolate ball on fire for dessert was our little firework show. It was fun to watch! I loved this place. Looking for outdoor patios with a nice garden like this from now on :)

The patio is gorgeous and our server was delightful. He was eager to take (multiple) photos of our party and was knowledgeable about everything on the menu. The food is most certainly a culinary collaboration.

In this day of popular outside dining, reservations make a seamless experience. Also having a happy hour is key. The food quality was excellent and uniquely presented. Our server was professional, knowledgeable and fun! A truly pleasant evening.
