    We arrived early of our reservation and sat out on the fabulous patio and enjoyed wine with a small complementary bowl of sweet potato chips. When we were ready to be seated they came and sat us in the dining room. For starters we ordered the chicken crepes and duck fried rice. Both were outstanding. Then I order the baby arugula salad and enjoyed that too. My friend ordered the salmon cake special which she enjoyed and a side of mac n cheese which did not come until she reminded one of several waiters, it then came right out. I ordered the black angus ribeye, let's just say I wouldn't order it again. Had much better for half the price. Dessert was good which was a chocolate cake and mint ice cream.

    Our table was not ready when we arrived, but we waited outside at the patio bar and had a wonderful time. We were having such a good time that when the hostess noted our table was available, she let us stay at the bar until we were ready. Once seated, the waiter was very pleasant and helpful. As appetizers, I had the oysters on grits with barbecue sauce and my wife had the fried oyster salad. Both were excellent. Unfortunately they were out of the grouper, which my wife wanted as the main course. However, the lamb chops (cooked medium) and scallops as entrées were great as well. As busy professionals, we do not get out much, so this night at Felicia's was a very relaxing, pleasant experience. We will definitely be back.

    The food was absoutely wonderful. Great layering of flavors and not over done. Loved the scallops and hash! It was our first time experience at the restarutant, and while everyone was nice, something felt odd in that we had five or six people waiting on us throughout the course of the meal. In turn, there was no continuity to build rapport with the server.

    Service was fantastic, great overall dining experience. The Duck Two ways and Lamb Chops were cooked to perfection and seasoned well. Watch out for the duck fried rice, it can get a bit salty. Gotta go BLFTG salad and if you are in the mood for experimenting, try the chicken livers...They were incredible

    We had a party of 7. We had to select 3 different bottles of wine before they had one in stock. We had to remind our server twice for items we asked for but had not received. We felt rushed, one server tried to remove a plate before we were finished with it. The manager seemed to be rushing us. The food and the atmosphere were excellent.

    I had a few visitors in town for work. Some had been to Memphis on numerous occasions and have eaten at several good restaurants while others had only been here a few times with limited dining excursions. I arranged for a table in the kitchen which was accommodated 30 minutes before arrival. I had eaten in there one other time and had a great experience. While my guests were a little bit uncertain of being led into the kitchen upon our arrival, it did not disappoint. Six well traveled guests from all parts of the country with many dining experiences each said it was one of the best meals he or she had ever eaten. That was not just in Memphis, but anywhere or any time. Oysters on grits, chicken crepe, trout, steak, incredible dessert.

    My wife and I and my in-laws went to FS Saturday night. We loved the appetizers (chicken crepes, oysters) And the entree's were perfect, the rib-eye with fried onions in a reduction sauce was succulent while the grouper with fried green tomato was to die for. We lived though, so that we could return and try the other delicacies.

    The food was spectacular and I would recommend to anyone. Unfortunately the service was no where near as good. Our waiter made us feel as though we were not welcome and no more than a nuisance to him by being there. The servers assistants were fantastic and very kind. My fiancé and I were disappointed in the server himself and how he treated us. The server was cocky and arrogant to a fault. When asked questions he responded in a mocking tone. For a $150 dinner for two I was shocked by the service.

    I was not overly impressed with it. I got there at 12:15 and already 2 entries were sold out. I asked the server for a black napkin so I wouldn't get white lint all over my black pants. They did not have them. My client and I were covered with white lint. His black shirt was a mess by the time we left. I would assume a fine dining restaurant like that would have alternate colored napkins (attention to detail). Waited over 20 minutes for food. Over all not impressed.

    We had an early reservation (6:30) to celebrate an anniversary. My wife ordered the shrimp and grits and I ordered the gulf grouper. We shared a side of southern cooked greens. My grouper was very good. Unfortunately, the shrimp and grits were room temp. The greens also were room temperature. The taste of all the food was good. However, they missed on the basic requirement of serving us a hot/warm meal.

    They were out of two menu items that my husband tried to order. The outdoor dining tables are long, but we were seated right next to people we didn't know. There should be a seat between each party. Instead of waiting until we were finished, we received our entrees while still eating our appetizer. Then we received food ordered by the couple sitting next to us. The food was not bad but the dining experience was unpleasant. For the price we paid, we were very disappointed.

    Felicia's never disappoints! MY grouper was probably one of the best pieces of fish I have eaten in a really long time. The blue cheese fritters on my salad were amazing as well! A recommendation if you don't think you will have time for dessert is to order the sweet potato casserole, and eat it at the end. It was fabulous!

    We chose to sit outside since it was a nice evening. The waiter was very nice and thorough. About 20 minutes in it started to lightly rain and the radar showed more coming. We asked the manager about other options if it rained harder and he responded that we sat outside at our own risk. We asked about tables inside and he said it was full. A few minutes later the table next to us moved inside. It never rained harder so we were fine but it left a bad taste in our mouth. How you treat people costs little but can be expensive in the long run when customers do not return. If he had just responded, "Let me check" when we asked about inside it would have showed effort and concern.

    Been here 3 or 4 times while in town and believe it is best menu and service in town. Try the chicken crepes for a starter. Patio dining is unique and fun. Great for nice weather. Grab an early meal or get a reservation as place will get crowded quickly.

    Have eaten here before and it was good. The menu seemed very limited. When asked if a salad could be altered or changed they said no. Had Ribeye Steak for dinner. Not cooked evenly. Meat was poor quality. Very chewy. My wife had shrimp and grits and thought it was ok. Service was slow, not helpful and not knowledgeable about the menu. Very disappointing experience especially given the fact that our last trip there 3 or 4 years ago was excellent. Don't know that we will go back and can't recommend to others based upon our experience.

    That's right, a delicious lunch on a beautifully designed patio is easily capped off with 25cent martinis on Friday afternoons. I suggest the spare rib grilled cheese or the shrimp & potato dumplings. Can't pass up the Sweet of the Day: fried chocolate cake swimming a liquor caramel sauce and topped with homemade coffee gelato. Most dishes run $12-20. Sides are $4-8.

    After reading some of the reviews, I was reluctant to visit this restaurant. Well. I guess we know that more people often complain than compliment in reviews. The food, service, presentation and ambience was outstanding. I had the lamb and it was out of this world. I am a lamb lover and this was the best I have ever had. We will absolutely be going back!
