    I went to felice last minute with my boyfriend. We both got the hanger steak and it was absolutely delicious. The waitress reccomended a bottle of Pinot noir that was also great. I would love to come back here soon it was great :)

    The menu was unpredictable and fit my taste. We were seated outside and it was uncomfortably warm, no fans, no a/c options. The fish tacos were good, but the octopus appetizer was a little disappointing.

    Old Victorian home turned into an eclectic eatery. Not a fancy place, quite casual atmosphere. Outdoor eating is on the patio and in the outdoor bar area (old garage). Good variety of selections for meat eaters and for vegetarians. For appetizers, I can recommend the mussels - and get additional crostini to soak up the fabulous broth - garlic shrimp and hummus. Recommend the roasted beet salad, the salmon and the mac & cheese.

    We were in town to help our aunt move. She wanted to treat us to dinner and chose Felice. It was special in so many ways -- the occasion, the food, the wait staff and the moment. After appetizers and before the main course we were herded inside due to imminent rain, thunder and lightening. As drought stricken Californians we would have been happy to soak it up but the dexterity of the staff was impressive and we were pleased to experience both the patio and the inside dining space. Food and staff were exceptional.

    Service was EXTREMELY slow. My friend found a piece of plastic in her fork. They handled it well by taking her meal off the bill and providing free dessert for the table. However, later in the evening we overheard a server calling our table a very disrespectful name. We were horrified and probably will not return.

    Take a recipe you think you know and Felice's Urban Cafe makes it fresh. The PoBoy sandwich with deep fried veggies and mac and cheese with some great sauce, not too heavy, were great. Terrific outside patio.

    I love visiting Felice. I usually take my friends to dine there and everybody really like it. The service is nice but sometimes could be fast/slow depends on how crowd it is. They some time open the outside garden to sit as well. Just wish I live closer, so I could go more often.

    I was worried about going back to Felice because I knew the restaurant had a new chef. My worry was unnecessary. The food was excellent (how do they manage that from their tiny kitchen?), the service friendly and helpful, the surroundings lovely. They were easily able to accommodate special dietary needs, and to answer questions from our group. It's a great neighborhood restaurant, and a wonderful value for the modest cost.

    Our wine glass was dirty. Also the waiter, on her way towards our table, pulled a hair off of it. My salmon dish was great, however the calamari was just ok and isn't the greatest looking dish either.

    We went to Felice for my birthday, and I have to say that the food was fabulous. Definitely not a place to take hungry children as it took about an hour from the time we placed our order (i.e. 45-60 minutes for mac & cheese for the kids). However, this is the perfect place to go if you have the time to relax, enjoy a cocktail, and spend quality time with your favorite people while waiting for some really delicious food.

    The food was really good, besides the octopus app. It needs some work. Katie our server was so slow. We waited awhile for our food, had to ask for drinks, then waited so long for a refill that we declined when she finally showed back up. Had to ask for our check, then waited as she was seen talking to her coworkers and texting. I usually leave 20%+ tip, I left $15 on $112. I wrote the resturant and told them about it, but I have heard back. There are so many other good restaurants in Cleveland why good back. Sad because the food is good.

    We sat outside on a cool early summer evening and had a delightful time -- the food, ambiance and service were excellent. The menu is creative and offers interesting choices for both meat-eaters and vegetarians, and the plates are beautifully presented. This is a good special-occasion spot!

    Food was terrific - we really enjoyed it. But our waitress was slow and inattentive. We ate outside on a cool somewhat windy night but they could not get the one space heater to work. We did not ask for them to turn it on so they must've known that it was cool. Yet they kept seating people in that area outside. (Another area outside on the other side of the bar had a working space heater.) For all the workers that they had – it appeared to be a one to one ratio for workers to diners and there were lots of diners – they certainly didn't provide the attention these diners (us) expected. Given their apparent youth, perhaps they were just inexperienced summer help. A more professional wait staff would make this place super.

    We were a group of six sitting outside on a gorgeous night. It was a very, very long wait for our entrees after our appetizers. They offered free drinks and free desserts to apologize. It was a week night and made for a late night but the food was tasty and the company enjoyable.

    Staff must have been thin as waitress was rushed and not too friendly. While smaller portions for dinner entrees was nice for a lighter meal, our appetizer of shrimp was quite small for the price. Everything was fresh and tasteful. Not too crazy about pairing of salmon and fish tacos.

    Sardiines were outstanding, Arugula salad, Charcuterie were a bit disappointing. Garlic Shrimp was okay. BUT the French cut Pork chops were wonderful. Really tender and tasty. Interesting beer and wine selection. Had the wednesday special, so indulged in Cheesecake and coffee creme brûlée which were both yummy. Little bit of background music would be good. But we will definitely go back.

    Felice has one of the best outdoor dining patios in the area. Food is inventive, delicious and fun. Portions are not huge--they are appropriate and ample. Have never been hungry after eating here, and have never been disappointed by my meal. Price is a value! Go and enjoy the food, drink and atmosphere.

    Ambiance is good. Service was adequate. Food was only okay. Our second time dinning. Appetizers were fine but Korean ribs were all fat. A little disappointed. Never really like to complain but would not order these if you dine there.

    Our first time there. Intimate place which made it enjoyable. But there was a party that was unusually loud so our server seated us away from them and gave us a better table in the front window. Love that the menu wasn't the size of the book war and peace. Very reasonably priced. My wife had the salmon and I had spaghetti. We both loved the size of the portions. Our swerver made it nice too. Attentive without be overbearing. For dessert I had the ginger cheesecake (wife doesn't eat desserts). Good and filled you up the whole dinner without being stuffed. We will be back again.

    We have used Felice as a go-to spot for an interesting, easy, relaxed place for dinner for about 3 years. We liked the menu selection of small plates with good variety and reasonable prices. We also like the patio in the summer. Our last visit was disappointing. The menu has been reduced and is less interesting. Our entrees were good but not memorable. Still a good spot, but "good" is the right word.

    I had wanted to visit Felice for a long time but just made it. I was very happy. The setting, in an old house, is nice. The food was excellent. Hot sardines, cold octopus salad and the best ribs I have eaten in town (with a Korean flair). I will definitely be back.

    Having had a disappointing experience several years ago shortly after it opened, I was very pleased with our dining experience at Felice this time. I thought the menu was interesting and the food was very good. Service was a tad sow, but we weren't in a hurry, and it was a very busy night. My only negative comment is that The noise level was uncomfortably loud, so that is something to keep in mind. I would definitely return, next time to try out the patio!
