    I would not recommend going to Fiola Mare during COVID or after. The first thing I was informed of is the time limit at the table of 1 hr 30 min, which I thought was completely tasteless. I was celebrating a birthday and brought a cake with me to share at the table. I was informed that I could not cut or eat my cake at the table because things from the outside are not allowed. I thought that policy was ludicrous because literally people bring jackets, purses, etc in the restaurant, which are technically from the outside. Nevertheless, we pressed on. Our waitress was fine, she did her job gracefully and was very funny. We all ordered the lobster ravioli, which was $55. The dish tasted great but I think we were all shocked when we received 2 ravioli and 2 pieces of lobster. It was so tiny that it was more like an hor d'oeurve than a dish. It is criminal to me that Fiola Mare thinks it is appropriate to charge that amount for 2 lobster ravioli and 2 small pieces of lobster. I have no problem paying that amount for quality food but that dish was severely overpriced. At that point I did not wish to press on and order anything else. With the time limit on the dinner, I think we were all ready to go at that point. We all left HUNGRY and underwhelmed. It completely put a damper on my birthday celebration. For that, I will not return and would caution any one else to do the same.

    Everything was outstanding! We were supposed to get married on 9/12 but due to the pandemic we postponed the wedding. We went to Fiola Mare to celebrate the occasion and it couldn't have been better! The service, food, beverage, atmosphere was all fantastic! Thanks for making it such a special night.

    Tough start but manager made the night. He’s excellent at his job... great turn around. We know it’s covid and it was raining but we let the restaurant know it was our 20th anniversary before we arrived, however we were seated in a cafeteria style table. We let the manager know it was our anniversary and he moved us. Once at a better table the service was not happening... this also changed with the manager; he made our night better. What started off rocky became a good learning experience on how to save the meal. Well done to the manager but for this caliber of restaurant it should be treating all patrons well and service is key to going out to dinner.

    Service was very slow. We sat for 15 minutes without any service. The new waiter was not on the ball. She did not know which drinks were included with the champagne brunch. We got our bread basket after the 1st course which we asked for multiple times. We had to flag down other waiters and bussers for water, ice etc. We had to ask another waiter for the check. It was all in all a disappointing meal with a view.

    Food was amazing. Be aware that they will tell you when you arrive that you have to be out in 90 minutes-- which was impossible given that they didn't seat us for 20 minute and then didn't take our order for another 30. Masks are required with all interactions with servers-- so be prepared to have to stop your conversation repeatedly to put on masks and let the servers refill your water, etc.

    Overall the experience was great. Food was delicious and the service was excellent. Only recommendation is to have some sort of mosquito repellent for the patio/outside seating area because the mosquitoes had a good meal as well haha. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for dates and special occasions.

    If there is inclement weather in the forecast a reservation is not really valid anymore. If it rains be ready to wait an extra 45mins for your table. The food was great and the service as well, but the hostess adds pressure and makes your meal uncomfortable when you are reminder that you have a limited amount of time for the table as soon as you are seated.

    Pouring rain which caused 45 min delay in seating for 7:15 reservation. Ended up sitting outside under leaking roof. I kept dodging water drops and getting splashed . Food was only average. This used to be our best special occasion restaurant for family and out of town guest. We were celebrating a birthday and no acknowledgement. Won’t likely go back.

    Fiola Mare is one our favorite restaurants and where we typically go for most celebrations. Even in the current COVID times, the food is amazing - we always order the seafood tower, and entrees and desserts are outstanding. The staff is usually fabulous too - we had reservations on a very stormy night that also coincided with many blocked streets, so we arrived about 20 minutes late. We called to let them know we were delayed and they were very understanding. Although it did seem like table service suffered a little, however, we still love it.

    This place has gone so far down hill. Besides being a miserable experience during Covid, the food was a 5 at best. I had the Halibut with mushrooms and it was so salty I could hardly eat it. It was also cold because I had to wait 20 minutes for the bathroom as they will only let one person in at a time, but they have no problem letting anyone walking by from the waterfront come on in. My friend got the scallops - also a 5/10 and for $50 you would think you would get more than 4 quarter sized scallops with two raw radishes, 3 basil leaves, and a sprinkle of other bits of raw vegetables. It would've been hilarious if we hadn't spent $250 (for 2 people) on a miserable experience. The waiter had to be begged to bring us more water multiple times and served us over the back of our booth TWICE - I'm not kidding! We were seated at a kind of circular table and he brought us bread (had to ask for it) and a dessert over the back of the booth. Insane. This used to be a favorite but after this, I'll never go back.

    I have not dined out much during COVID which is why I chose Fiola Mare as the place to celebrate my new job and birthday. The service and food is still amazing. We even got a delightful greeting by Maria Trabocchi. What I was impressed with the most this time is their high standards for safety during COVID. Not just for the guests but for their own staff. A restaurant that does their part and asks guests to do their’s as a way to protect each other. I would not hesitate to go back again and again.
