  • Kitchen snafu; handled promptly
    EatingOut
    Dined on 11/14/2014
    I was part of a party of 6, each of us dining at Floga for the first time. One entree came out cold. Another (the whole fish of the day) was actually raw at the thickest part of the fillet. Our server immediately took those entrees away and - without us requesting it - the manager came over promptly to apologize and see to it that all of our dinners got back to the table quickly and she removed both entrees from the bill, again without us having to ask for it. At the end of the meal, the chef himself came to the table to apologize and indicated that the were training some new people in the kitchen. I'm not sure there is any excuse for raw food to be served, but when a problem happens I'm more concerned with how it is handled. The staff at did the right thing, did it promptly, and without us having to argue over anything. Everyone can make mistakes. I will eat there again.

    We took our friend to Floga Bistro for her birthday with a group of seven. We had been there before and liked it enough to invite our friends. It was a Monday night, so it wasn't busy. The food did not disappoint. We ordered several appetizers to pass around, and all were yummy. I got one of the specials and one of my friends got another. Both were delicious and the portions were generous. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable about the menu, which helped with our selections. This is a BYOB which really keeps the price down. We brought our own cake for the celebration, and they added candles and a singer who was good enough to be a professional! All in all it was a very enjoyable evening!

    I think there is a new chef. The menu is the same, but the dishes are different - but a good different. You could tell there was a different spin on the recipes, with delicious results. All of the dishes were excellent and delicious with the old chef, and they are excellent and delicious and different with the new chef. All is good.

    This restaurant had wonderfully, flavorful food. The pace between soup/salad and sinner is perfectly paced. Food is delicious and 4 of us had 3 different meals. The cod fish special was incredibly presented and tasted even more wonderful than it looked. Waitress was pleasant and had a great sense of humor, kidding with us as we kidded with her. We just didn't know to bring our own wine but will do so next time!

    We were a party of 8 who were going to Longwood for the Fountain/Fireworks show on Sept 13. I was a little nervous based on previous reviews - not having eaten here before. Service was very good and our waitress wanted to know what time we had to leave for Longwood. She didn't rush us, but we got out in plenty of time. Wine glasses were provided for our BYOB. Everyone ended up ordering different items from the menu and all were very happy. The acoustics are not great, even without a full restaurant it was a bit hard to hear, but not horrible. Ambience is not amazing, but a good neighborhood place. I would definitely eat here again, and with the BYOB our dinner for 8 was extremely reasonable. Great value, service and food

    We have been dining at Floga Bistro since it first opened and have never been disappointed. This is probably the closest BYOB restaurant to our home in Delaware and it's always worth the drive. We look forward to the specials that Chef Christos adds to the menu such as Pork Osso Bucco or the delicious Boneless Beef Short Ribs I had during our recent visit, which were done in a mushroom demi glace. My wife raved about her soup, which was a tomato bisque with baby shrimp and spinach. The freshly baked rolls are to die for. Floga's menu has something for everyone. The great service, generous portions and fair prices will keep us coming back on a regular basis!

    Really good food! Expansive menu. Well-prepared. Service was friendly but clumsy. Waitress was easily flustered, salads came out with apps, busboy tried to clear plates when we weren't done the apps, then never tried to clear anything again-had to ask waitress to do it. Overall, worth it for the good food. Wish we lived closer for the take-out opportunity. PS-it is BYOB which wasn't noted anywhere online that I saw.

    We live in the Pike Creek area and travel to Floga at least once/week. Arrived on Monday night to our favorite server Denise. As always, we received friendly and professional service. We raved about the food, as always, so she surprised us by sending Chef Chris out to our table. We were thrilled to finally meet the man behind the scenes. We travel all over on business and enjoy excellent food. Chris is right up there, in our mind, as one of the top chefs around. You don't need to leave home to get exceptional/creative food. We will return again and again. Patti and Joe

    We visited before attending fireworks at Longwood Gardens, having invited friends from Baltimore. All of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal - well prepared, generous portions without being ridiculous. We were lucky because usually Saturday dinner is very crowded, but they are slow at the end of summer. Floga is a great addition to the community.

    The food was excellent. I enjoyed the décor. The bread and dipping oils was the start of our great meal. Everything we ate we all enjoyed. When we first walked in, there was a large group dining that showed some energy so we requested to sit in the back. It worked out extremely well as I was looking for a little peace and quiet. My Mother-in-law, and two toddlers enjoyed our location. Our waitress was pleasant, very helpful, and nice to chat with. It is BYOB for those interested. Can't wait to go back.

    Floga is a great Italian restaurant. The bread is freshly baked and served warm with a delicious Olive oil dip. Veal Remanes was tender and the sauce is excellent - robust and not bitter. Chicken Marsala, Shrimp Scampi (huge shrimp!), and Pollo Villagio (chicken and sweet Italian Sausage with red peppers in Pomodoro sauce) are all good menu items. Service was excellent.

    Food was great. Nice menu selections. Sandwich options and dinners. Rolls were amazing. Service was slow. There seemed to be quite a few people working. One person sat us, another brought settings, but server wasn't around much. Never checked on us after food or offered drink refills. Was OK with that because food was great, but still, should have happened and I would have liked a refill. She just seemed too busy but when she was there, she was totally pleasant. Put some of the others to work! Host, bussers, etc. Server shouldn't be so frazzled.

    My husband, four kids and I eat here occasionally. It seems to keep getting better! All the food was really good and cooked as ordered. My husband and I got the stuffed portabello appetizer and the grilled calamari appetizer - both were excellent, especially the calamari. It was cooked perfectly, not rubbery at all. Our son got the mussels in the white broth and it was delicious. We were dipping our bread in the broth because it was so good. I got a Greek salad for dinner, which was perfect after all the appetizers, and my husband got a burger. Our little two shared a kids' cheese pizza. It's definitely big enough for 2 kids. The big kids got a steak and a burger. All was good!

    Husband requested a trip to Floga for his birthday solely for the veal parmesan. That's his favorite dish and Floga does it nicely with a choice of pasta from a multitude of selections. The warm rolls and spiced oil is a good start to any meal there. Fantasia pizza for me as always but was a little disappointed this time--too much cheese on top of the procuitto and artichokes--they were smothered. It was also a little underdone--cheese still very white. It still tasted great and will remain my favorite. No corkerage fee-- so nice. Waitress was efficient and friendly--almost a little too fast. Enough pizza for 2 more meals-yummy!

    You don't normally expect much from a strip mall restaurant, but Floga Bistro nails it! We were there for a Sunday lunch and truly enjoyed everything - the service was attentive, the freshly made bread that was almost too hot to handle, and the dished we had were fantastic! I had the Shrimp Fra Diabla. It was done with just the right amount of heat, and the Penne was cooked perfectly (your choice of pasta.) My wife had the Zuppa De Pesce. The broth was simply wonderful. They even deveined the shrimp. I'm still not sure how they could put calamari in the soup and have it tender, while making sure the fish, shrimp, mussels, clams, etc - we alll cooked perfectly! We will be going back.

    Second visit to Floga, food this visit was good, but not as good as first visit. Most notable difference was the service. Service was slow and not overly friendly on this visit, reservation was at 5pm on a saturday, restaurant was not crowded. Server did not seem to want to be at work that day, was not very attentive and everthing seemed to be an effort. Quite different than our first experience also a saturday evening around 7pm, more crowded, service was excellent. Would definitely give it another shot.
