Should teach service to other places. Food was wonderful, cocktails were top shelf, the best experience.

Parking is tough used the valet.
Thanks

The food was amazing , the service exceptional—like nowhere else. I hate to comment on the service because readers might think the food isn’t as great, but what can I say! I ordered the crab benny (the bottom crust was a bit tough- but the generous crab meat made up for it), grilled langoustine (perfection -$20 each), and sampled the garlic eggplant (i was trying to decipher the recipe while eating it- very good flavors) and ceviche, with mimosa and coffee (cappuccino is on point). The lovely river view is a mere bonus. I had a dreamy experience and will no doubt be back again when I visit DC.

There is nothing like this restaurant in DC area.

We used to live DC but moved out. We occasionally visit. But whenever we get a chance, we always had dinner at this restaurant. Food quality, extremely good, especially great seafood and the head chef knows how to make best out of any kinds of fish / shell fish. Service is also excellent. Very professional. Wine selection is also great with a lots of interesting wines, especially from Italy. We love this place, and we are glad that this restaurant is there for many years.

The service was excellent. We requested a quieter table and were accommodated. The food was superb. We were not rushed -- the pace of service was just right.

Table was not ready, so we went to happy hour bar. Ordered from happy hour menu a Chardonnay wine. Table was ready, so we asked for check from happy hour bar. Instead of the $ 10.00 wine, we were charged 25.00 for the glass of Chardonnay as the bar tender said, Oh, that was not on the happy hour menu, although we had the menu in our hands and were obviously ordering from it. Bar tender was either scamming us or ignorant.

Service was ok, asked waiter about a particular dish, sounded like what I wanted, but was not as he described earlier.
Overall, nice place but for the price, did not expect so many hick cups and had better at other pricey restaurants in Northern Virginia and would return to them before going back to Fiola Mare

The food, ambiance and service we’re outpaced only by the exceptional service. We have eaten in Michelin rated restaurants all over the world and the service at Fiola Mare is among the best.

This is a divine culinary experience. Firstly, I loved the oceanic decor of the restaurant. It is quaintly located on the river with a fantastic view. The staff were beyond exceptional. They were able to provide menu suggestions and possible alteration in menu selections. I told the waiter it was my first time dining and he brought out an amuse bouche to tease the taste buds of the food I was about to eat. I also told the waiter that I was trying to decide between two options and stated I could have a tapas portion of one dish as an appetizer and finish with the entree. The waiters were attentive, my glass of water was never less than half full, new silver ware were provided between courses and the table was cleared of an crumbs between each course. The food was orgasmic. Each course melted in my mouth with each dish being uniquely delicious. Management even came over to speak with me to inquire about my meal. All the staff were friendly, the atmosphere was warm and inviting, and I would highly recommend this restaurant to any person visiting the DC area.

Another amazing experience at Fiola Mare. Came with a group of my coworkers for lunch - outstanding food and service. I had only ever been for dinner, but the lunch prix fixe menu is such a great deal that we will definitely be back.

A must try for foodies! Flawless execution from start to finish. The signature dish of Lobster Ravioli should be ordered and shared for all to experience.
