We ordered wine by the glass. Although we never requested a wine menu the cost per glass was over $40. In hindsight we will request the wine menu prior to purchase. Also we ordered the 2 and 3 course menus but were charged incorrectly for two course items. We did not review the bill until the next day when we also discovered we had also left our credit card at the restaurant. The manager had locked the card in the safe. When we went to retrieve our card the manager corrected the additional charge and reduced the bill substantially. We will return. The food of course was outstanding.
I had the Maria Menu for lunch which was 3 courses and an extraordinary value. The chef offered an amuse bouche of seasonal baby vegetable crudites with a tonnato sauce that was refreshing bonus to a perfect meal. The service was proud and attentive but discreet. I would definitely return.
Overly chatty waiter. Food was very good but not to-die for.
Nothing I would not recommend. Foie gras was divine
Wow! Great meal and our waiter Mo was the best! Excellent food and ambiance. Highly recommended.
Top-notch cuisine with nice ambiance to match but pricey, of course. Had the 4 course prix fixe option and was more than satisfied with the amount of food plus the chef added in an extra surprise courses at the beginning which was a very nice touch. Nice wine list, too, but even cheapest half bottle of red is over $50.
Fiola's top-notch cuisine and service made for a memorable and delicious anniversary dinner.
The food is a little too extreme. Flavors tend to blend together. Fantastic service though!
Outstanding in every way. Food is sublime, service polished, atmosphere elegant but not over the top. One of DC's best.
Fiola is a very special restaurant. It is very upscale. The food is presented beautifully and is absolutely delicious. Don't forget to save room for the amazing desserts!
The servers were always there when you needed them. All were extremely knowledgeable and friendly.
I was delighted that I chose Fiola for my birthday!
Seriously one of the best meals I have ever had at a restaurant, and we eat out a lot. Wait staff is super attentive, and friendly, very comfortable, not stuffy. The wine recommended by the sommelier was perfect. While certainly expensive, well worth it for a special occasion (or two).
Amazing food with surprising value due to the excessive quality (a 6 Oz wagyu Ribeye included as a tasting option? Wow ) Mark was an excellent server and really added to the meal as well. Can't wait to return to Fiola!
I have loved Fiola since it opened. The food and the service never disappoint. This was the first time I tried the "courses + dessert" menu format. Courses are larger than tasting menu courses but smaller than traditional menu servings. I found 3 courses + dessert to be too much food, but every bite that I was able to eat (first two courses) was superb. I did not hear the waiter's description of the delicious amuse-bouche, but it tasted like vichyssoise with smoke salmon and caviar. The gazpacho with avocado was light and flavorful and the tortellini and sweetbreads were fabulous (and buttery rich). I took course #3, roast pork, home and happily ate it the next day. Cocktails and wine were excellent, too. I was too full for dessert. Next time I will have the 2 courses + dessert menu.
Portions very small, but quality very good. Staff was very attentive.
The food was amazing! I would eat at Fiola's again when back in town. Service was also exceptional. Great evening!
