    This was our second visit to Fiola Mare from our home down in So. MD (we had Sunday brunch both times). The first time was just after the restaurant opened last Spring. The food and service were outstanding (both times). They must be "stalking" me because the host welcomed us back (and mentioned the date of our last visit) and we had the same waiter as last time (and Anton remembered what my wife and I ordered last Spring!). We brought two friends this time and sat at a window seat. The noise of the jets, helicopters, and river boats was a bit of a distraction for me personally, and the sun a bit warm. We sat at a table well inside on our last visit, and will do so again on our next visit...which we definitely intend to make.

    I think the restaurant is excellent overall, but a little to pricey. Three of us had a birthday delicious lunch. They split our 1 order of cavatelli onto 3 plates to start. For desert they brought their signature chocolate cake with with gold leaf and a candle for the birthday boy. My only complaint was I ordered a glass of rose (their only rose listed), priced at $14.00/glass. The waiter then asked me if I wanted it sparkling or flat. I said "oh, you have a sparkling one??" He said yes. I agreed, but when he passed the table, I asked if the sparkling was more expensive. He then brought the menu and it was $4.00 per glass more expensive. I didn't appreciate it. It felt like up-selling and their prices are already very high.

    My husband and I celebrated our anniversary yesterday evening. We had a wonderful seat! Our server was excellent. The ambiance is very romantic. It was perfect! The branzino was quite tasty and is enough for two. Compliments to the chef and staff! The hostess however should learn sometimes saying less is more. She commented "I like your earrings were they a gift?" I responded, "No, I bought them myself actually". A simple I like your earrings would've sufficed. Otherwise, our evening was decadent and very special. Anyone looking for a romantic restaraunt, THIS IS THE ONE!

    A wonderful evening. We arrived early and were set in rocking chair on the front porch with a drink in our hands and watching the Georgetown waterfront crowds. We split the salad, two entree's and a dessert. The restaurant served them split into two dishes and served the main dishes as two separate courses. The food and table was beautifully presented. Definitely a special occasion restaurant and not an 'every Saturday night' locale but well worth it.

    It took weeks to get a reservation for the Saturday night time we wanted, but worth it. The entire wait staff works as a team. Our waiter was extremely helpful. When I asked about the tuna carpaccio appetizer, he said that it was one of his favorites. It was delicious! We had narrowed down our main courses and asked for his recommendation. He recommended the lobster ravioli, which has full lobster meat in four large ravioli and added lobster on top. He said the lobster meat equaled a pound. We each ordered one and were thrilled. It was excellent and filling. Before the courses, we were given complimentary gaspachos. We split a sorbet/gelato for dessert (coconut/pistachio/raspberry). Delicious. The restaurant is a bit pricey but worth it.

    GWR1VIP
    Dined on 9/12/2014
    I rated Fiola as overall very good, but lacking in value for money. Fiola Mare is less successful in impressing me. We visited on a Friday night at 7.30 before reservations for a 10pm show at Blues Alley. Enough time? Barely. We found the service exceedingly slow. The food was good, but unremarkable relative to the price. A cavatelli pasta at $22 was good, but not memorable. Equally the turbot at $44 was not noteworthy. But the biggest disappointment was the sommelier - the most sinister and unhelpful we have experienced in DC. To the credit of the restaurant, the view from patio tables in the evening is indeed remarkable, and if you are willing to overlook the lack of value for money and faux pas, it is a very nice evening out.

    The food was excellent, however, it is not at all affordable, even at the top most end of the scale, for the Friday & Saturday night out dining budget of your average person. That said, if you are looking for the quintessential fine dining experience and have an extra $250 plus to spend on a lovely dinner for two, than I would highly recommend. The restaurant space and ambiance itself is quite outstanding situated just alongside the Potomac at Washington Harbour in Georgetown. The lobster ravioli – my favorite – is simple yet oh so satisfying served with a few lumps of lobster nestled in among the ravioli with an incredible sauce. For that special occasion, this is a perfect choice.

    I came here to celebrate my mom's 60th birthday. The restaurant is GORGEOUS and the view is even better. We sat outside, had terrific service from the server and also the Sommelier, Will. The wine list is extensive and Will helped us a pick a bottle to our liking. We each ordered some antipasti and pasta dishes. Everyone was extremely happy with their meal. My family is Italian and my mom kept saying her dish reminded her of her mother in law's cooking back in Italy. I recommend getting the Spaghetti with Prawns or the Tagliatelle with Wild Calamari. A meal to be remembered and I will definitely be returning!

    It is located right by the Potomac River, and the atmosphere is gorgeous. I have dined there four times so far for lunch and dinner. I must say that these four meals were all too salty. They use great seafood. The freshness is guaranteed. Why do they put so much salt on them? The services were fine, except, the attention of the waiters is hard to get even they seem to be very nice in gesture. Other crew members (busboys and water servers) are very attentive. It is an expensive dining experience there. We would except a perfect meal and services. Unfortunately, it is not quite there.

    Went with high hopes which were dashed with the appetizer. Tuna wasn't bad, but I expected TERRIFIC. And less could be more. Every dish that every person had was so busy you missed the fish...that may be by design to cover mediocre food but at these prices each dish should sparkle. I'd put the quality of fish on par with an upscale chain. The service is excellent -- as good as any I've had anywhere -- and it would be nice to have food that match the caliber of the waitstaff.

    Fiola Mare has yet to decide if they are a fine or casual dinning experience - offering some of the best and worst of both. We came on Sunday night for a birthday - the restaurant was about half full. It was 45 minutes after our 7:30 pm seating that our drinks arrived (the waiter spilled one of them on our daughter) and an hour when we ordered dinner. The waiter answered my husband's request for an oaky chardonnay with a recommendation which was not at all oaky. He refused the bottle. The sommelier Will saved the day with an oaky wine that was delicious. Artic Char was the best dish with the others less wonderful b/c of too many flavors or too much sauce. We loved the special touches but 3 hours for a Sunday dinner is too much.

    My husband and I dined here on a beautiful evening and sat outside on the lower deck. Service was spotty, not the kind of pampering you would expect at a place that charges $44 for an entree. The food was good but not exceptional. At these prices I expected better. I had the arugula salad, and it had ricotta cheese in it which was unappealing, tasteless and mushy. The salad would have been much tastier with goat or feta cheese in it. Both of our fish entrees were ok, but at $42 and $44 each, they were not good enough to come back to this restaurant. I don't think we will be returning.

    Outstanding service and our party of 6 had an outstanding table location. Food was just not quite up to expectations. I ordered the sole which was de-boned at the table and had to send it back because of the very fishy taste. After apologies and an offer to select something else, I just could not get into anything and ended up ordering a cold appetizer which left me a bit unsatisfied. Everyone else at the table had great food. The big hit were the scallops (which is what I should have gotten). All in all a good dining experience and we would go back.

    From the scheduler who confirmed our reservation to the gentleman at the door when we left - the service was fabulous as was our table (they have so many windows, we could see the thunderstorm as it passed through). The food was delectable - my Italian husband said this is the only place he'll go for pasta now. We plan to go back this week and see what it's like at the bar on a "school" night.

    Beautiful scenic spot on the river with a view of the Kennedy center. Easy to find. Great service experience started with the valet, continued with our hostess and server. Food was spectacular. For a special occasion (birthday dinner) I find service to be as important, if not more so, than the food. Offered complimentary glasses of champagne for the table and complimentary dessert. Following the meal, we had planned to walk along the river but those plans got rained out. We decided to stay and have a few more drinks/coffee. Since the restaurant had become quite crowded, we offered to move to the bar to free up the table. She insisted we stay at the table and continue to enjoy ourselves. Fantastic from start to finish. We'll be going back

    I cannot say enough about my two recent experiences at Fiola Mare. First of all, the food and flavor combinations were quite imaginative. It is such a delight not to have the same old flavors and preparation methods. Kudos to the creative chefs. Next, the service was of the highest caliber. Our every wish was granted, and a couple of our unspoken wishes were anticipated and granted even before we could express them. Everyone went considerably out of his/her way to make sure we were happy with our meals. Finally, we had a beautiful view of the Potomac, and as the sun went down the city skyline reflected on the river's surface quite stunningly. Altogether, this restaurant scored the highest possible marks on my two separate occasions there.

    I was at Fiola Mare for brunch. There were 5 of us. I was immediately impressed with the friendliness of the staff and the level of service. In fact, probably the best customer service I've every experienced in DC. The pace of the meal could best be described as leisurely and the food was excellent. I recommend the bread and pastry basket as well as the pistachio ice cream.

    The food is very, very good. But it is also fairly pricey compared to other DC restaurants with excellent food. Our servers were enthusiastic, but not very focused, it seemed. We had been seated for over five minutes before anyone came to our table. Someone brought bread, but we had to ask for olive oil. We had to ask for pepper. And it was very, very noisy. It was a busy Friday night, so we didn't expect it to be quiet, but there are hard surfaces everywhere and nothing to dampen the noise. I would recommend, but with some caveats.

We had a lot of sand in our seafood pasta dishes, and the restaurant took care of us as a result. Very definitely would recommend to others visiting or living in DC.

    If you are fortunate to have a table in the main dining room, the restaurant has a great vibe so that the food and setting more than compensate for the lackluster service. If you are not so lucky, the other spaces are disappointing and depressing and not worth the price. A member of our party remarked that it looked like they ran out of money to finish the restaurant.

    Our third dining experience at Fiola Mare was sub-par. We've also dined at Fiola many times. Each previous experience was wonderful; however, on Sunday night, the dinner was much less than expected. The meals were still fairly good, but the service was absolutely horrible for a restaurant of this stature. We constantly had to ask where our drinks and meals were. Two of the 4 appetizers were not put into the kitchen, and didn't come out. We ended up cancelling one and waiting on the other. The waiter apologized, but did not seem trained in the menu and constantly had to go check on things. I'm not a stickler for service, except for at a restaurant such as this. It will be a while until we head back to a Fabio Trabocche restaurant.

    My husband and I had dinner for our 24th anniversary (son along as well). The food was absolutely delicious. The Frutti de Mare platter was spectacular and the staff threw in a few extra oysters for the special occasion. We also had the mixed grill and the lobster ravioli. And a very nice desert -- again thrown in for our anniversary. Wine list is impressive. View is great. A little pricey, but worth it. Will definitely be back and not just for a special occasion. Thank you for making our anniversary dinner fabulous!

    Lets get right to the point. Fiola Mare is exceptional in all respects.You are greeted at the door by your host who makes sure you are taken care of. If you arrive early and make a reservation, window seats are no problem and are beautiful places to dine in comfort. The wait staff is friendly and knowledgeable about the food and the liquor. They have a team approach so you are never left with an empty bread plate or water glass. The waiter (Milad J) was very helpful in selecting food and appropriate drinks to go with it. The food is exceptional. We tried a wide variety of appetizers and salads and all were expertly prepared and served. The Lobster Ravioli is mostly Lobster and delicious. The oysters are sweet and perfectly briny. Just go
