    We arrived and got seated quickly. The food was pretty good. The only thing that was off was the waiter needed help. We waited a long time to place our order, get our food, etc. It wasn't the waiters fault at all. He clearly had too many tables. It was a Tuesday night and the occupancy was at 40%. Management needs to adjust their payroll and add another waiter or waitress. The chef made a delicious pasta dish. They have a pretty decent wine list too. The brick and mortal is a nice location, had good valet and the decor was nice. I'll try it again but hoping the wait isn't the same.

    It does not matter that the food was good. The service was horrible. Long wait time to get seated as promised and the servers were inexperienced without a clue as to how to wait on tables. This was very far from a fine italian restaurant. Better service at Oliva's in Sherman Oaks. I won't drive 15 minutes out of my way for long waits and terrible service.

    Four of us met to celebrate a birthday. Entrees were delicious all around the table. I especially enjoyed their meaty lasagna which was large enough to save half for lunch the next day. Perhaps because they serve a puffy pizza appetizer instead of bread. The house cab was fine and they even brought over scoop of ice cream for the birthday girl.

    Food is reasonably good, but not exceptional. Minimal seating for large parties -- peculiar given the location in the heart of a business district. Service needs attention. I'd go back, but with lower expectations.

    We have dined at the W. H. Cafe Fiore a number of times for lunch and dinner. Their food is always outstanding and the portions are quite large (more to take home!). Love their spinach gnocchi! Actually, all their pastas are great as are their pork and veal shanks. Large size comfortable bar with music...love it when the music is soft so you can hear yourself speak. Their outside patio with heaters is lovely and is quieter than the inside dining room. Looking forward to our next visit!

    Came here on a Saturday evening hoping for a place with good food and entertainment. We had two different pasta dishes. The food was good but not great. Our waiter was great, very friendly, checked up on us often. The live music was mediocre at best, a one-man-band who played a couple of songs between 9 and 10 pm. Not sure if the musicians change up, but on this occasion I was not thrilled. All in all a so-so experience, will probably not be going back. Both the food and the music need more pep.

    I haven't been here since this place was a different restaurant. I was really surprised with the ambiance and remodel! It looks great! Plesant atmosphere with bar music for the weekend. The menu had a lot of options - the parma pizza was delcious! The only downfall was our server. He lacked personality and speed.

    Three of us had dinner on the patio, service was outstanding initially. Three people asked if salads were good although they forgot the dressings. Entrees were good. I ordered chicken risotto which was very good and served in a small kitchen pot, nice touch and kept it warm. One of us ordered the boulebasse which was also nice with large pieces of shell fish. The third ordered Oso Bocco which looked wonderful but was at least half fat and grissle which she put on a seperate plate. At this point the level of service went way down. No one came to ask if the entrees were ok nor did any one come to refil or refresh the drinks. Mentioned the fat and nothing. Later the server offered desert...a few berries but no manager nor apology.

    This was my 3rd or 4th time to Cafe Fiore - the first for dinner. I think they have a great menu and I've loved the salads I've had at lunch. I tried the Cioppino which I would rate as good, not great. Others in my party had salads and one had a meat dish which they all enjoyed. Service was pleasant, helpful and friendly. I do enjoy this restaurant and look forward to returning.

    This was such a GREAT place for a night out! The food was amazing! My husband ordered the Linguine Del Mare (linguine with seafood) and he said it was the best he's had in YEARS! I had the appetizer with bacon wrapped shrimp and spinach.....AAHHH! AND I had a great glass of red wine that was suggested by our waitress. There was music in the bar that made for such a light atmosphere. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will be back!

    Located at the bottom of an office building, I was pleasantly surprised when I walked in to Cafe Fiore for the first time, the decor is beautiful and the soft lighting makes the restaurant look inviting and fun. My party of four girls enjoyed the fresh bread they give you when you sit down. The wine list was great and the menu had delicious options. I got the chicken parm which was very good! I'd highly recommend this gem of a restaurant.

    when we were seated in a cabana table on the patio, and was served fresh out of the oven naan-like bread with a tomato spread. The drink and dinner menu looked enticing, making it difficult to decide what to order. There were four people in our party, and we each ordered something different. None of us were thrilled with our respective dishes, and left disheartened. We won't be returning for dinner, but may be a good place for after work drinks and happy hour.

    We live in valley and we've finally food a place that offers delicious food and excellent service. The food is real food not prepackaged stuff and is made to order. Cost is affordable. Went last night with friends and as always had a wonderful time. Our friends couldn't believe they had not been before. We met the owner and she was very kind and knowledgeable. Favorites calamari, bolognese pasta, salmon, osso buco. And the tiramisu is excellent. Cocktails, we are working our way thru menu...slowly. Like beer on draft too. Fiore is doing right.

    Our waitress forgot our salad, she also forgot to stamp one of our valet tickets, which held up the line to get out. I had to run back in. We went to a 90th birthday and they did nothing for the person. It can't be that expensive to give them a scoop of ice cream with a candle on top. This the not the first time this has happened. I love the place but if you our going for a special occasion and it is important to you, I may suggest going somewhere else. The food was good, the food is alway good. But it's the little things that bring you back to a restaurant week after week.

    I have visited this particular restaurant many times over the last year and although the quality of food is very high, sometimes the preparation of the same dishes varies on each visit. Maybe the kitchen staff take it in turns to cook?? :) Overall their menu is well balanced and presented in a very professional manner with very knowledgeable staff. I do believe that eating between 5 and 7 is probably not the best time to let this restaurant shine as each time I have dined their at 5.30 p.m. they are still getting themselves organized e.g. this week the waitress had not yet tasted the specials so could not give us her review - which really is a valuable benefit when ordering.

    We had gone to Fiore in Ventura and all 4 of us had one of the best meals ever. The food at WH was not good. It also seemed that the menu items were different. We had the pizza with the for ingredients in different quadrants. All I can say is that none of the quadrants were very good.The bread was a giant pita rather than the delicious focaccia and French bread basket we had at Ventura. We will not return or recommend.

    Food was yummy! Waiter was very nice, but once we got our main course, he seemed to forget us. Had to ask for dessert, had to ask for coffee, had to ask for more cream, and my credit card finally got picked up by someone else. He was visible around the restaurant, but was busy doing other things. We were pretty much the only ones inside, so it wasn't like he was trying to make other diners happy.

    It was our first time here. The food was't bad but it wasn't great either. Maybe we just ordered the wrong things. The appetizer clams and mussels were the best. The Burrata and beets salad was good as well, but it was drenched in too much dressing. We all had all kinds of entrees ranging from pasta to fish to meat. They were all just OK. Nothing really stood out. Service was great. She was attentive and accommodating. A couple of things with the support team-ie: the busser and runner. If you are going to clear someone's silver after the first course, you should replenish it before the second course arrives. Well, this did not happen. Runner was busy so he just hurriedly laid dishes down and ran. Overall- a good experience.

    Some of the food items were excellent. The calamari and zucchini - oh the zucchini - were yummy. The osso buco was a bit chewy and risotto undercooked but the sauce was excellent. The pizza dough was good. Another diner loved her ravioli but another diner was not happy with the cioppino. The desserts were tasty. The apple pie was good. The napoleon received moans of happiness. The brownie sundae was good but the brownie was overcooked and dry. I will go back to pick my way through their menu. Our waitress wasn't very polished.

    The brunch selection was adequate. The food that was served was very good, but there could have been more variety. Our waiter was terrible, and it took over an hour to get drinks as the table, due to the waiter being very bad and the use of a bartender cart that when randomly from table to table, not in an orderly circuit. The restaurant was not too crowded and that was nice.

    This was my first experience at Cafe Fiore, and how fantastic it was from the minute I walked in. I've lived in Woodland HIlls for 5 yrs and had no idea this place was just down the street. The overall venue is great, not too lit up just the right amount of light, luv how the dining area is separate from bar but you could still hear music, the staff were friendly, the bar area is great, went in there first for happy hour and then had dinner. The band was fantastic too. I would definitely see them again however I do not know what the name of the group is. I have many friends not even aware of this place so I am now recommending it as our social gathering place. I wil bring my boyfriend there too when he is next in town!
