    We had a group of 7 and the food was excellent. We brought our own wine this time but ordered wine by the glass the first time and it was quite good. We enjoyed live music and the waiter was very attentive. This is the second time we have eaten there and have been very pleased both times. I would highly recommend Flora.

    Upon arrival our party of 5 was met with a friendly staff. All choices of appetizers, entrees and dessert were very tasty and delicious. I recommend getting the special of the day as it was very fresh and aromatic. Definitely a place to bring clients or friends. The fireplace lent a great warm atmosphere compared to the snow outside.

    There were only a few tables filled with patrons during our visit yet it took 30 minutes to receive a soup appetizer. It took almost an hour to receive our main course. I realize the main course is cooked to order but with so few tables filled, I'd hate to see what the wait time is when the restaurant is fairly busy. The chichen dish was wonderful but the salmon dish was horrible. I couldn't eat it but didn't want to send it back fearing the wait time of receiving another dish so my husband ate most of it. The fish dish tasted like a fish market smells. It was so fishy tasting. I love fish but cannot stand fishy tastes. I have never had a salmon dish that tastes fishy before. Its like a fish tank was poored into it.

    Very creative menu. We loved the unique sauces. Everything was cooked perfectly. It was quiet and romantic- we sat by the fireplace. Good to see a kids' menu with $5 meals-- You don't often find a fine dining restaurant with a reasonably priced kid's menu. Waiter was enthusiastic about the dishes and answered all our questions, even going to ask the chef. We hope to be back and try their brunch.

    We have eaten here 5 times now and we love it. The best thing on their menu is the pork osso bucco. To die for. Honestly though, I have never eaten anything here that is not spectacular. Defintely worth checking out.

    THis is a nice setting - a beautiful fireplace, there is plenty of room between tables, the service is polite and good. They give you a lot of food but I would say it is only fair. In my opinion they use too much salt. The garden salad had a type of green that I don't care for - stringy and tough and the candied walnuts were strangely salty. The chicken Marsala was good except again that it was coated in a salty crust. It came with mashed potatoes and zuccini, which were good.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 2/1/2013
    We really wanted to like Flora. But, from start to finish, this meal was just . . . unfortunate. Overblown sauces with no relationship to the rest of the dish, gristly meat (pork chop), stale and cold vegetable sides, and wine by the glass that was definitely not opened recently. On the upside, our server was friendly and parking was easy.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 1/31/2013
    The establishment was entirely empty when we arrived and never gained more than 2 other couples. The food was nice, but very overpriced for the small amount and for the only slightly above average quality. The one item of note that I cannot say a single negative comment about was the waiter. He was absolutely wonderful in his friendliness, his knowledge of the products, and his ability to quickly adapt to requests. The food was not bad, but for the price, I would expect something far superior.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 1/25/2013
    it's nice to have a new neighborhood restaurant in the area that isn't fast food or a soup and sandwich place. The food at Flora was very good...the presentation on the plate was nice...portions were just the right size. Our desserts were also very good. However, not sure if they are still trying to work out the kinks in the kitchen. It took FOREVER to get our food. Even our soup took a good 15 minutes to get out to us. Then our entrees took another 20 minutes. A family near us was seated before we arrived. We ordered, had our meal and dessert before they got their food. If you are going to have a kids' menu, you better get food out fairly soon or you won't see families coming in. Hope they figure this out. It could be a nice spot.

    I took my wife to Flora for her birthday. It was really good food. The selections are few, but quality. It was a freezing cold night when we went out and to walk into a restaurant with a giant fireplace and a warm, welcoming atmosphere was just great. I felt like the lamb I ordered was cooked to perfection, but I feel like the portion could have been a bit larger for the money I paid. Overall, I would recommend this place to anyone.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 1/5/2013
    This was our second visit to Flora. Both times the chef had prepared delicious specials. The food is unique and well worth every bite. The only dish not thoroughly enjoyed was the steak salad. Too much spinach and not enough of anything else. The easy fix for that is try one of the many other delicious and to die for items. This visit we loved the shrimp and green tomato sandwich appetizer...coupled with the mushroom artichoke soup, I could have made that my meal! Still more could be done with the decor, plenty of space. A barrier at the front door would block the cold draft. Chef Bryan both times has indicated if there was something special we wanted to let him know and he would try to accomodate us. We will definitely return again

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 12/28/2012
    Food was good. I like beets, though many at my table didn't so that wasn't as good for them. I really think the experience here would be dramatically improved with a few cosmetic adjustments. Having the front door open directly into the dining room was odd and did two things: made the environment stark, and let cold air in. A simPle screen could help this. Eating out is an experience. You really need to address the atmosphere. Even the kids at our table thought it was odd. Service was a bit slow on the entree. Seemed like it was our waitress' first day, but she was very sweet.

    There were 5 of us dining, and all found their meal absolutely delicious. Will definitely recommend Flora to friends. I want to try it for lunch soon. It was most helpful, to our group, that they were open Christmas Eve until 8. Except for Asian restaurants, most are closed at 5 on the 24th (not that I blame them one bit.) But it was very nice for us to enjoy Christmas Eve at Flora. The newspaper article in the Tribune last week is what led us to go there, as we had not heard of Flora before. The fireplace working and the overall ambiance of Flora made for a really pleasant evening. Also, our waiter was very good. Everything about our experience at Flora was just lovely.

    The food was very good. The space has so much potential, but it's not being used. The place feels "temporary" -- as though the owner's haven't really invested the energy or $$ to make it lovely, unique or memorable. That's a shame, because the food is good... but the setting, ambiance, decor and servers all need an upgrade. Service people shouldn't be in calf-length pants with knit-top boots. Terrible personal presentation. C'mon, Flora, I'm cheering for you to step it up and fulfill your potential.

    We went on a very slow night (the night before Thanksgiving), which may have impacted our experience. The menu item we most wanted was not available. But the food we did order was excellent. Service was great, too. It's nice to have such a good restaurant in downtown Holladay; we hope it survives. But the ambiance is just not there. The dining room is much too large, even for nights that bring a larger crowd. The tables are separated by so much space that it doesn't feel like a "fun" experience. Please support this restaurant; it deserves to succeed!

    My wife and I had dinner at Flora for her birthday. The food was very good, although the texture of the spring roll with peanut sauce was a bit strange. My wife had the goat cheese ravioli and I ordered the chicken linguine with lemon cream sauce. The chocolate cake was also very good. The space is a bit large and felt a little bit like you were eating in a fancy warehouse, although the table settings were nice and the decor was elegant. It was my wife's birthday and I had mentioned that when making the reservation, but no birthday wishes were extended....so that was kind of a bummer. Overall very good and I'm sure we'll go back.
