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 and ambiance was excellent!!! Our server was also fantastic however because it was Valentines Day lunch the meals took a lot of time in between each service. But it was well worth the wait.... especially the desserts!

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.

Great food and great service. Great ambience for a birthday dinner. might be a bit too noisy for a date night dinner, but the setting itself is so lovely by the Potomac.

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.

I had a reservation for a seafood brunch for my anniversary. They were able to locate us at a table by the window with a river view. The service was fantastic, and the food was delicious, as well as the desserts. Overall we had a fantastic experience. I would absolutely recommend Fiola mare to friends (and already have) and plan on returning soon.

We love everything about Fiola Mare - food, service, atmosphere. I have food allergies and most of the menu items can be tailored to my needs, which is a big plus. We have been to FM twice and plan to dine there again in the near future.

We dined at Fiola Mare last evening to celebrate my boyfriend’s birthday. It was ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS in every way possible; from the lovely way we were welcomed by each member of the Fiola Mare team, to the MARVELOUS FOOD and then the lovely greetings by management to ensure all our needs were met above and beyond. This is by far my favorite restaurant! I want to thank the Fiola Mare team for making the evening so special.
