We were there for my husband’s 60 th birthday. It was perfect. The level of service from our waiter, Alex, and Stefania, the director of customer experience, was nothing short of outstanding. We’ll back sooner rather than later. My husband loves that you have Kerner on the wine list.

Great service! Servers and management were extremely attentive. Came by every now and then to see how things were. I didn’t like the sauce on my halibut but didn’t have the heart to tell them. . They gave us some nice sweets as a bonus since we didn’t order dessert! Nice bonus!

Delicious food, and wonderful atmosphere. While the menu is very seafood heavy, there are plenty of tasty options for vegetarians. Would definitely recommend for special occasions and will be back!

There is no more of a Michelin star deserving restaurant in Washington DC than Fiola Mare. We dined here this Saturday night past and were beyond impressed by the excellent overall delivery we received here. The white truffle risotto is to die for. Exceptional wine list and impeccable service. A must visit. Can’t wait to return

Love this restaurant, the food has never disappointed. Enjoy the view of the Potomac. Generally come for some special reason, although the Maria lunch menu with its modest price suggests I should come just to enjoy. Nice, attentive service, although you have to ask for bread with your starter.

The food at Fiola Mare was excellent, with a creative, appealing menu and tasty food throughout. Wine selection was very good. Desserts were attractive although a desirable one was not available when we ordered, midway through the evening. The only complaint I had was that the service was a bit over-powering --- too many people hovering over the table and too much intrusion by the server. We generally enjoyed.

While we really love the restaurant, and have dined there on multiple occasions, we really did not like our seating on that night. We were in the dining room behind the bar near the front of the establishment, and it was simply too cramped.

Superb food (unique, beautifully seasoned) and service is over the top but not at all stuffy. I so appreciated, not only the friendly interaction between the server and myself, but that two of the managers / owners came over in a very friendly and non-intrusive way to inquire how everything was. I was there by myself so this was a welcome interaction. My only suggestions to achieve perfection would be a different music track that was less annoying and maybe seating people in jeans and track shoes (who would blend in at any fast food establishment) in a different area of this spacious restaurant.

Great food and wine list. Good location as well; would highly recommend to anyone looking for excellent seafood served with a modern twist. Portion sizes are large; two of us shared the sea robin which I believed said it served 3 to 4 (we did not finish) and a half order of the lobster ravioli and were stuffed.

Great place! Food too expensive when compared to the size of meat you get on your plate... but outside that this place is perfection!

The food was lovely - though nothing particularly surprising or innovative. The service was also generally excellent, but if I’m paying $50+ for an entree I find it off putting at best that the door to the patio directly by our table is repeatedly shot so hard it makes me jump, or feels like it is intended to rattle my bones. Let’s just say it was very nice, but I expect more from a restaurant that once claimed to be Washington’s best.

I came to celebrate my husband's birthday almost a month late! We had been away and then very busy with work and just life in general! He LOVES the grilled calamari at Fiola Mare and I knew that's where he wanted to celebrate!
We loved our table by the window looking at the water. It was cozy and quieter than in the middle of everything! He was very ancy about ordering our food and I told him to just take a breath and enjoy our time together and our delicious prosecco! He realized we are always rushing here and there and everywhere. We had the best bday lunch ever! The service was impeccable and they gave us the space we needed but were there when we did need anything! It was simply perfect! Thank you Fiola Mare!

My husband, his brother and us wives went to DC for the Marine Corps Marathon. Someone at the hotel had recommended this place. My sis-in-law and I had the lobster ravioli and drinks, all of which were delicious. It is a bit pricey, but a great place for a special occasion.

Excellent service. Very good food. Nice view by the Potomac. Rather crowded. Reservation is necessary. Seafood is very fresh and many items are carved beside you table. A very good selection of wines.

Staff is very knowledgeable about menu items as well as wines.

Very very good quality food, but also with special touches. The Cacio e Pepe for example was excellent and a very special recipe. Fish also prepared very well.
Excellent service with a great Somm.
Second visit, will definitely return.

Very good food at Fiola Mare but prices are too high. Disappointing that the options for red wine at the $100 or less per bottle level are limited. Lovely location and view. Noise level a bit too high for our comfort.
