Service recovery was excellent.
Everything was delicious, we had several of the raw appetizers and the eggplant before getting into our main courses. Service was slow but it was a busy Saturday night. Everything was expertly prepared so we didn’t mind a little extra wait
Among the best dining experiences of the year, and that includes multiple dinners in France! Serious food... extraordinarily prepared and served; professional, attentive yet not pretentious service; beautiful dining room with multiple options. World class!
Lovely 😊 atmosphere, fantastic service, amazing food !
It’s perfect for all occasions
Always a pleasure!
The Maria Menu is an excellent luncheon value. Seafood was extraordinarily fresh. Desserts okay. Appetizers excellent. Drinks predictably expensive. Valets excellent.
The lobster of the ravioli was undercooked. It made my wife sick.
This is great place for celebrating an special occasion! The food was so delicious and very much of the Michelin quality! We were pleased and hope to be back soon.
Staff were friendly, attentive and very knowledgeable about food and wine. Food was superb - every bite. My wife has extensive experience in the restaurant business so she knows good food and service. Only complain is that the seating hostess took us to the two worst tables in a 3/4 filled restaurant which we refused. There were at least 15 open tables for two. This was our 43 anniversary dinner, so while we are not millennials we are still a vigorous, well off, gray haired couple. A tab over $300 should get you a nice seat to go along with their nice anniversary card. By all means go - but be very firm about getting a good table.
the food is a bit overcooked and the seafood isn't of the best quality. I had better experience last time. Please maintain the service you provide/
The setting is lovely but the food is overpriced for what it is.
We keep coming back! Fiola Mare has it all - elegant ambiance, delicious food, great people-watching if you want it, and exceptional service. They really shine.
Our waitress ‘Roxy’ (Roxalana) was top notch: knowledgeable and incredibly amicable .
As usual this is a top spot in DC. Sometimes noisy and less wonderful at dinner, but the brunch was perfect. Weather helped.
Service was outstanding, and the smaller dishes at brunch were plentiful and delicious.
Delicious, super fresh, gorgeous meal! We had a wonderful evening and highly recommend Fiola Mare.
The food was very good. The service was not good. It was extremely slow. The Manager apologized and gave us free sides and desserts. But, that didn't overcome the slow service and the effect on our evening. I would not recommend this restaurant to friends.
The overall experience was fantastic. Our waiter was amazing and everything recommended was exactly what we expected. We have tried to get in before and are glad we finally did. Great restaurant!
Excellent service. Many thanks to the Turkish manager Canver Satkialp. Our server was also very good! Spaghetti with prawns was too much “Aldente” for me but its sauce was good. We had salt covered Bronzino de-boned and served at the table side. It was delicious!
Fiola Mare...my new FAVORITE restaurant!
Take me back to Fiola Mare! Spent a lovely Friday evening there a week ago, and after fighting rush hour traffic, settled into the oasis of this wonderful restaurant. Our server was wonderful...professional...charming...efficient, and the food was absolutely delicious! First ordered a frozen rum cocktail. It was yummy, but too frozen to drink easily, and tasted like a piña colada. Good, but wouldn't order again due to consistency. Other than that, everything else was fabulous...oysters on half shell, salad, wine, lobster ravioli (pricey for just 3 pieces, but soooo good...I HAD to try it!), and then a wonderful tiramisu! In between these courses, they also served an amazing amuse bouche, and a palette cleanser sorbet. Overall, simply a wonderful evening. Will make this my "special occasion" restaurant! (Also, nice touch that the owner of restaurant greeted us at our table, but I wish she had introduced herself. I only knew that because I saw her in a magazine article.)
We had an excellent wedding celebration dinner at the Fiola Mare restaurant, fantastic!!!
Bad quality of food. Too pricy - which is too bad as the service was outstandingly good.
The staff at Fiola Mare were spectacular. They were attentive and knowledgeable with just the right amount of attentiveness. Food was delicious Appreciated the acknowledgement of birthday celebration.
Really great lunch
Waiter was so nice one of the best waiters we have ever had and food was delicious cannot wait to return.
Wonderful restaurant. Great service. Had a seat outside a little elevated over looking the water. Very nice. Had a pasta appetizer that I split with my husband and a new fish that I do not remember the name but it was wonderful. Highly recommend the restaurant was very good.
The food and service were outstanding. The decor was amazing.
I feel so much grief typing this next thing. Based on my experience.... This is a place that a number of fat old men bring their young female hired dates for dinner. It was so awkward. It’s been days and I am still upset about it.
I was there celebrating my son’s Birthday. We are from out of town and he is a freshman at a nearby school
I understand that you can’t tell who made a reservation and I don’t fault the restaurant. It seems like it would be a great idea,however, not to seat an obviously middle aged woman with a family in tow In between TWO creepy old white men with obviously close to underage young women of color. I could be judgmental but I haven’t seen in my well traveled live many fat old men wearing extraordinary expensive watches dining with perhaps not 18 year old beautiful women of color wearing blood red boots that went half way up their thighs
It was not as good as it was. Disappointing.
Thanks for a wonderful dinner. Had a great meal and wonderful service.
Excellent food and service. It was very well paced. We followed the recommendation of a bartender to order the lobster ravioli as an appetizer and split it. It was fantastic. I had the bucatini with prawns as a main course and it was also excellent. The food was phenomenal overall and the price is high. It is well worth it as a special occasion place.
Our preferred tables remained empty throughout our visit. We were not permitted to move to our preferred table.
We had to wait for one whole hour for our food to come. They gave us complimentary dessert, but for the price I didn’t expect high end restaurant could missed placing our order to kitchen.
Amazing food, service and ambiance. Very pricey, but worth the expense. Had the burrata for an appetizer and the lobster ravioli for my entree. Best meal I have ever had. Dessert (tiramisu) was good, but not wow.
Beautiful night to spend for anniversary!
We celebrated our 30th Anniversary at Fiola Mare for brunch and it couldn’t have been nicer. The food was great, the service excellent and the location perfect. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
Wonderful experience for special out of town guests
Every detail was perfect. Food, service, ambiance - all terrific
Fiola Mare was a dining experience! Aaron our waiter and John our Som were fantastic and made the experience just right. We will definitely be visiting again soon. Well done on all fronts; great food, drinks, wine, service, decor, ambiance and location.
Food was delicious and well presented.
We had to wait a little bit too long for the food which is pretty unusual at Fiola Mare.
However, our waiter was amazing!
