Celebrated my 10 year anniversary with my wife and it was by far the best restaurant experience I ever had. The food was amazing and the service was phenomenal. I highly recommend it and whom ever that special person is in your life they will love Fiola I guaranteed it.

I think the value question from OpenTable is silly. This restaurant is not about value it is about decadence. The food was stellar. Delicious and beautiful. each dish a work of art for your eyes and your palette. The service mostly outstanding. Attentive without hovering. They take great pains to make sure everything is not just right but perfect. Where they slipped a bit was on the delivery of the main course. The kitchen appeared backed up due to a large party and there was a lengthy delay between courses. For a restaurant of this price point/caliber that just shouldn’t happen. To their credit, they acknowledged it and tried to make amends. Would definitely come back for a special occassion.

What an outstanding restaurant, and experience. The staff is beautiful, and truly cares about what they do, and it shows. I like how the tasting menus have some options, not being completely boxed in to a set tasting experience. Lots of details and small touches make this place a MUST try for fine dining in DC. Visit the other Fiolas in DC too!

Good experience, not sure I'd rush to do it again. Value aside (obviously you're paying a lot) I just didn't feel that the menu was super creative and the food, while good, I wasn't blown away. Service was good, not necessarily wow. Pacing just seemed a bit off. Maybe just an off night.

Fiola's was AMAZING!! The reviews do not lie - it is everything you can imagine and more! Our waitperson "Brett" was fantastic!!! Ask for him! First class all the way! Brett and his team made us feel so special. They catered to our every need but not overly so. They were always in the background just watching in case they detected we needed something and then "bam" they were there.

The food - outstanding!! There were six of us and every dish was so good it was hard not to lick the plates:) It is difficult to pick a favorite because we did a lot of sharing through the five courses and everything was soooo good! We thought we might leave hungry but not a chance! There was so much between the courses, pallet cleansers and breads that it seemed more like 8 courses.

This is an expensive restaurant but worth every penny of it for the experience and top notch service. We had five plus people attending to our every need. Thank you so much Brett and team for making our experience so memorable!

As an Italian. I can say this restaurant, the staff, the cuisine makes me proud of my heritage. The dishes. Inventive, exquisitely executed while retaining the beauty of the Italian soul. Bravo Fabbio,rappresenti il nostre paese mervigliosamente. Orfeo di Puglia e Tommaso di Bolzano erano una gioia. E hanno contribuito alla magia della serata...Fabio you have
Represented our country marvelously. Orfeo from Puglia and Tommaso from Bolzano were a joy to talk to and added to the magic of the evening

It was exceptional. Everyone was attentive but not overbearing. The food was fabulous (no surprise) and although it was a very fancy restaurant it was comfortable. Everyone was dress well, everyone had manners, but everyone was in their own table bubble enjoying themselves. It was beautiful memory and experience

After a long hiatus, we went back to Fiola (we had focused on Fiola Mare for a long time). And we realized what we had been missing: Italian food at its best. From the warm welcome, it was apparent it was going to be a memorable dinner. We opted for the basic menu with options, going for four courses. The antipasti of foie gras parfait was a surprisingly delicate handling of this precious product. The langoustine tartare was topped with unctuous Calvisius caviar, creating a most interesting contrast. The surrounding cantaloupe sauce made the whole dish very refreshing. As for the pasta dishes, the bucatini with red king prawns were perfectly al dente and the sauce was nicely spiced. The corona ripiena was delicate but stood up to the ‘nduja spiced sauce. We were kindly offered complimentary cappellacci, small agnolotti-like pasta with a nice touch of fungi porcini sauce. The secondi we opted for was rabbit saddle, prepared in the style of porchetta, was simply delicious. The wine list is exhaustive and speaks to all tastes and budgets. We recommend that it be studied ahead of time as going over 127 pages may take time at the restaurant, even though the very knowledgeable sommelier and the manager would be of help. The service was impeccable: non-intrusive, friendly, attentive and professional. All in all, an outstanding experience, highly recommended.

It was Fantastic. The wait staff were all very knowledgeable and knew the menu. It was our anniversary and they made it very special for us.
Our selection were perfect and right on. Looking at other food being delivered to other tables, makes want to go back and try them all. We were not disappointed and give it a two thumbs up.

Fiola was beyond anything we could have imagined. We came for my girlfriend’s birthday and we had an amazing experience all around. The food is phenomenal, the entire team (servers, sommelier, the GM, bartenders, hosts) were warm, kind and attentive, and the atmosphere is top notch. We opted for the 5-course tasting menu with a starter of salumi and we could barely finish it all. Plentiful portions without losing the integrity of flavor or presentation. I can’t rave enough about Fiola - we will be back!

A gourmet experience although the fish did not sit well with us the day after. They certainly cater to the higher end, but we felt that the staff was a little pushy on getting us to sample wines or different champagnes than those we had selected. We enjoy dining experiences and travel regularly to Europe, where the sommelier will advise but never pushes. Perhaps something to think about. The parfait de foie gras was particularly enjoyable.

This restaurant showed up in my search for Restaurant Week. I was surprised when we got the menu and was told they were not participating in Restaurant Week. Since it was a birthday celebration for a friend, we decided to stay. The meal and service were 5 stars. Staff was very attentive and informative!

This was my first experience with a Michelin-starred restaurant and wanted to be blow away. The service and ambiance, particularly for my wife's birthday, went well above expectations, but the food was far below what I was expecting. Multiple courses, namely the red mullet and the rabbit pancetta, felt like work to get through, being either very dry or bland. Maybe I don't have the palette for this type of food, but overall I left very underwhelmed.

How does one serve caviar without proper service ? Oh try to be avant guard? Nope just bad taste. Boring, over priced I could do better elsewhere. Service lovely food was dull

What an absolute lovely experience. Every staff member, from the reception staff, to the bar staff, right on through to Jennifer, and the serve staff were incredible and a joy to interact with. I did the Ligurian tasting menu and each course was divine, full of flavor, and a joy to dine on. Staff did a fantastic job pairing wines to the course, and working around my dietary restrictions.

I wholeheartedly recommend Fiola to anyone looking for an ultra upscale, fine dining experience in D.C.
