This is a charming little restaurant with a very nice menu and good food, but the service was not good.
I have never written a review before, but feel I must today. We've been here three times, a local, cozy, promising place. We watched when the owners carefully chose decor, and lovingly installed counters and eventually opened (possibly) 3 years ago, delicious smells wafting out the front door. We ate an exquisite meal there about 2 years ago, served by an enthusiastic Italian waitress who brought joy and a feeling of Italian love of food to our table. The next two times we ate there (approx. 6 months ago and last night), we found our dishes inconsistent...arugula salad was abundant and fresh, but dressing had little taste and seemed unsalted (same with Brussel sprouts). The fish pasta was "good", but the "vongole" appetizer was very salty and clams were tough. Most surprisingly, the waitress actually raised her voice three times to the intimidated bus person. NOT a good marketing method. We were embarrassed and shocked and did not enjoy the service at all. I am sorry we won't be returning.
We have branch at Fiore, all dishes we ordered were very good. I don't hesitate to recommend this little cute cafe
I love the relaxed feel of this place, whether I am just stopping in for a quick glass of wine or planning on dining, I am never disappointed. The night staff is a breath of fresh air! I believe a husband and wife run the place, you can tell they are both passionate about the restaurant. There passion is reflected in the great food and overall ambiance. I have tried just about everything on the menu, and I LOVE it all.
If you haven't stopped in Caffé Fiore highly recommend it!
For a quick snack have the clams and arinchino, SO GOOD!
We asked for a table beside the fireplace and did not get it. We were disappointed.
Right as I sat down within a minute after taking my jacket off. I was asked if I was ready to order. I asked for a few minutes, since I just literally sat down and our server saw me walk in the door. It's a small place that uses their tables wisely. We waited about 20 min for the server to come back, so we ordered a carafe of sangria, it took forever, then our food came out within minutes. We were hoping the sangria would arrive to the table before we had our meal. Otherwise we would have just ordered a glass. My friend asked for red pepper flakes for her gnocchi which was tasteless and the server didn't understand and brought out a pepper mill with black pepper. Then pointed out the salt & pepper shakers. My friend decided to give up. I ordered the eggs Benedict with prosciutto. I actually enjoyed my dish. The place is cute, but the service was not the best. I think it was the server's first day. Being in the industry myself, I have some understanding. However, I definitely do not plan on going back. So many other great restaurants to dine in the Mission district.
Fiore Cafe is absolutely a fantastic restaurant. Stunning atmosphere and delicious food. We were a big party, 10 of us, and the wait staff was friendly and perfect. The food out of this world! The crostini with Parmesan and goat cheese was phenomenal, as was the gnocchi !!!
The food was fantastic from the arancini to the gnocci gorgonzola. The ragu & pepperdelle was everything a ragu should be: the meat was like butter, the pasta fresh, the tomato sauce delicate, but bold. Our steak was cooked to perfection. Not one complaint from our whole party. The wine list was well curated & probably some of the best pricing I've seen in the city. Definitely recommend this for a vibrant night out with friends.
It is a cute little cafe but unfortunately does not have the acoustics to support crowds or loud patrons. Sat waiting for water refill and then had to request check after about 10 minutes of waiting. I would go there if I had children, but it isn't a place that has enough room for separation from children and adults who do not want to deal with children.
Had brunch reservation last Sunday, party of 12. They put 4 two top tables together with 10 chairs forcing us to go around to other tables asking folks if we could take the unused chairs and resulting in 4 people using each of the end tables. This isn't rocket science
Our server was fine and the food was pretty good - good portions, came out warm and all together - so kudos to the kitchen and chef.
It was a bit loud but that was probably us :-)
I had the vegan tomato soup special and arugula salad. Service, while friendly, was inefficient. I had to ask for my iced teatbree times. Husband had the Benedict, liked it fine. Tomato soup was room temperature., I should have asked for it to be heated up but I hate to do that. Overall good but there are too many other great options in the neighborhood
Good food; NOT difficult to find parking. Very reasonably priced.
This is a nice little neighborhood spot. The food is genuine and the ownership of the place feels authentic. Great for a date.
This place is delightful- carefully renovated, immaculate. The lunch menu was simple but had good choices, and our sandwiches were excellent, tasty, and attractive to regard. The side salad was spot-on, perfectly fresh greens dressed in a light flavorful oil and vinegar dressing. My iced tea had been made from scratch of English breakfast tea, and was the best iced tea I've ever been served. It was better than the tea I make at home! We will be back!
The food was amazing. Really, this place is great.
I had a bunch of friends and family in town, and we were looking for a neighborhood spot with great good. I had been past Caffe Fiore a number of times but never dined there. We were all pleasantly surprised! They handled a group of 13 with ease. Timing of our food was perfect. The food was delicious.
Small, corner business in a gritty, historic neighborhood, the owners brought a relaxing ambiance and great authentic italian food to a comfortable neighborhood in San Francisco. The gnocchi was TO DIE FOR. Also, some of the best bread I have had on the west coast. The pesto-olive oil dipping oil was just the beginning of a wonderful experience. Also, one of the few restaurants with a very satisfying Montepulcciano for less than $15/glass on their menu. A true gem that I will be visiting again on my next trip to SF.
I was hoping to really like this place, but it was such a disappointment. the menu is pretty small. the omelets were meager at best, even though I added veggies and meat. My Favorite thing on the menu is the fresh squeezed oj... and customer service is pretty good. but the food :(
The service was outstanding. Was what made the experience so special in my opinion.
All was very well but the food could have used a little more seasoning. My pasta needed salt. The panecotta was to die for
We've really enjoyed the brunch we had in here. We had a reunion with an old friend, so had a long chat, did not have to feel the urge the leave the table to people waiting in line, enjoyed the delicious brunch, followed by wine and desert. It couldn't have been better!
Food was outstanding and at very reasonable prices.
I made a reservation for two but reservations are probably not necessary here. It's a neighborhood gem with delicious, simply prepared food at a fair price. Outdoor seating is really nice and they are dog friendly =)
Eduardo is the most wonderful host and takes great care of his customers. The food was just outstanding, as well, with excellent wine choices and an array of appetizers for our table of 8 people. This IS a neighborhood gem, and as locals from just down the block, we love it. Delicious for dinner, as well as lunch or brunch.
Caffe Fiore was a really pleasant surprise. By day it appears to be more of a coffee shop, but at night is a wonderful, casual Italian cafe. The food surpassed our expectations and the menu had a nice selection of options for our varied group of diners. We tried the gnocchi, tortelloni special, orrechiette, clams, bruschetta, and several desserts, all of which were great.
Cute little spot in the mission just a block away from Valencia street. A real gem.
Amazing hand made tortelloni stuffed with ground beef and lemon zest. everything was good and fresh from the seafood salad to the Tiramisu.
Service was promptly and friendly. The espresso was probably the best one I ever had in San Francisco.
this is a very nice space, and the waiters are friendly, but the food is way below par I'm afraid. To order a caprese salad in tomato season and get pink pale plastic tomatoes is just sad. The bread and olive oil could have been from Safeway; the pasta was completely unremarkable. if they want a dinner crowd, they should improve the food quality quite a bit.
Dined here early- 5pm on Thursday so the no crowds but a couple groups there already for Happy Hour. Place is small, but quaint. Server nice and attentive. Food very good! Would definitely come back if in area. But as noted, place is relatively small, so dine here early.
Cute neighborhood cafe, with lively conversation, but the food just wasn't on point. Arugula salad was basically dry arugula on a plate with a few parm shavings; no dressing. 2 of the 3 main courses had little or no seasoning at all, though the mushroom gnocchi was reasonable. The best part was that it wasn't crowded.
Lovely little Italian restaurant in the mission. Enjoyed a very nice dinner in a nice atmosphere. Dishes well balanced, nice portions and great service. Bravo.
The service was promptly and attentive, the food and the wine was delicious. The interiors are simple yet clean and elegant. Higly recommend.
I had never been here, nor does it seem like most San Franciscans. It's neighborhoody, quiet, sizable menu for the small size of the place. Definitely a cafe (as opposed to restaurant), but we came with a hungry group of 7 and left full and happy. They were super nice, food was great. Recommend advanced reservation for larger groups as there is only one big table.
Neighborhood gem-consistently good food and fun atmosphere. We recently ate at the restaurant on a pleasant evening. Sadly, the service was terrible after the first course. Plates sat on the table for 40 minutes cleared. There were only a few tables seated so no excuse that the restaurant was busy. When we tried to inquire about timing and status of the second course, we were made to feel bad about inquiring and that it was our fault plates sat for 40 minutes delaying the entree. The proprietor could have helped the server instead he sat outside on the mobile device and socialized with friends/neighbors. When we final got his attention he spoke "under the breathe" in Italian, because know Italian we understood he was not sympathetic.
I had eaten here once before and did not find it kid friendly, as they refuse to modify any dishes or do anything special for kids (For example, they may have pasta on the menu, but would not do a plain pasta with butter and cheese), however since they said they had a special mother's day menu I thought that maybe they would be more accommodating for kids. Alas they were not. They food is good, but service is pretty slow and not great. Definitely skip if you have kids.
I was looking for a place nearby for mother's day brunch/breakfast and Caffe Fiore popped up. I had seen its sign before, but always thought it was just a coffee shop. It's really more of a cute little bistro. The people are really nice, the food was very good... fresh and nicely presented, and the atmosphere is pleasant for a couple or a family... a bit of an old world feel. To top it all off, prices are very reasonable.
We had a great dinner and left very happy. Will be back soon.
This is a fine Italian restaurant on a reasonably limited scale. What they do shows some imagination in food preparation. The crowd was small so the sound level was at a bearable level, but one can imagine what the decibels would be like on a very busy night. The site has no noise buffers, not even table cloths, but that comes with the modest prices. I intend to return at some future date.
It was a quiet place with a nice atmosphere. They had an interesting menu and the service was great. It's a café during the day and they transition to a dining room at night. We were one of two tables, so I am not sure if they ever have a more "vibrant" scene. They met our needs for a good dinner with good pricing, but I wouldn't call it a destination restaurant.
My wife and son got together in SF for lunch. I chose Caffe Fiore based on Yelp reviews. It was a rainy day and we were a little late, but the restaurant accommodated us. After ordering and receiving drinks, we ordered the special (eggs benedict), steak dish, and pasta pesto dish. The orders took a long time. All three came out together. The eggs in the benedict were slightly undercooked and the ham used for the meat part was kind of tough. The steak was requested rare, but came well done. The paste was good but too small for an entre. The food was at best decent. Service was good aside from the long delay. It's possible that the kitchen was understaffed. There are too many other choices for us to go back. Cannot recommend
