Loud. No music. Just voices bouncing off the wall.
Food was very tasty. A little crowded. Got bumped into a few times. Seemed like a slightly older crowd.
Like having a homemade dinner at home
Went with family and friends for birthday celebration. Early seating so it was fast and friendly. Seated right away and orders were taken quickly and efficiently. Great Service and food was hot and delicious. Everyone enjoyed everything we ordered from the pesto dip and bread, to the decadent entrees to the beautiful dessert. All of it was amazing. I just love finding locally owned and operated neighborhood gems and this is one.
Delicious food and excellent service!
Always lovely. Greeted so kindly and then everything falls into place. Relaxing, no rush, amazing food and service.
Food was delicious.....lovely wveninf
I would say the food and service was really good however make sure you do not get the table next to the curtain near the bathroom as people did not always use the right curtain opening to return to their table and kept bumping into my friends chair...kind of annoying.
The food was excellent and the personnel were courteous and nice. Plan to return.
Valentines Day. Never been disappointed at Foire. This time a little disappointed. We understand that it was a very busy day so we understand the difficulty for restaurant staff on days like this but the service was slow and they were out of menu items. Didn’t even get the Bread and I’ve oil and pesto sauce that was on the menu. Again this is a wonderful restaurant and we will definitely go to again and again but I think they were a little over their head on a day like Valentines day.
Valentine's Day dinner - price fixed menu. Everything was awesome!
We had only been in one time for afternoon coffee, and we loved this restaurant! We walked from home, we live so close, and decided to try it out for an early Valentine's Dinner. We had the antipasto mezze appetizer which was really fresh, and I ordered the salmon. It was so tasty! My husband ordered a beef dish that was really tender. You could tell there were lots of regulars there, the owner seemed to know most of the customers by name. We'll be back!
Food was delicious but service was slow. They could use another waiter.
First, you are warmly welcomed by the owner/manager, which is followed by an attentive and friendly service. I have never been disappointed with the food, and last night was really good. We shared an appetizer, stuffed mushrooms, which was delicious. I then had scampi risotto to die for, with large shrimps and scallops, and my husband really enjoyed the lamb shank. One friend has the Osso Buco which he also enjoyed. This restaurant is a neighborhood gem, not to be missed.
We ordered the calamari as an appetizer. It was delicious! We had four in our party and each of us were very pleased with our entree’s. The atmosphere was quaint and inviting, perfect environment for good conversation!
Delicious food and great service.
‘This place never disappoints me over and over again. We never get tired of eating here. Service is amazing. Food is wonderful and fresh.
Just a wonderful Italian restaurant; great food no matter what you order, nice wine list and outstanding service is what can be expected on each and every visit. I highly recommend this restaurant for every one looking for the best Italian food
Although very close to us, we had never dined at Fiore. It is a very nice small restaurant with great food. We had an opportunity for a pleasant chat with the owner who was also our server. We were there for a Friday night dinner and will be looking forward to going back.
I would think that a reservation would be an essential for the weekend.
Great meal, second time I ate there. Smaller group of 4 all enjoyed the service and food quality. Waite staff was attentive but not overly bothersome.
You can find some good classic Italian dishes here that are delicious. Food is freshly prepared and would make any foodie very satisfied. We had the Pescatore over linguine and also the the lamb shank entrees. Both were excellent.
We've always found Fiore to be a pleasant dining experience. Excellent quality, service and value.
We went on a Thursday night. Very cozy neighborhood restaurant. Small, intimate bar and comfortable seating for dinner. Excellent service! Short ribs were delicious! I will return!
My wife and I have been to Fiori on other occasions and always enjoy ourselves. This is our go to spot for a casual meal when we’re in Concord. The restaurant has the feel of a small family owned restaurant you could have found in North Beach, San Francisco or Little Itsly, New York in days gone by. The I’m Beyonce just casual yet nice and you would feel as comfortable in a suit as you would taking a break from shopping for a casual dinner. Don’t let the shopping center location fool you. This restaurant is a gem. It is small so make reservations in advance as recommended because they can and will fill up fast, especially on the weekends. Be prepared for a leisurely meal because as a small restaurant they have a small staff and a small kitchen. We they get busy you can expect to wait so enjoy another glass of wine and relax. If you want fast Italian, ho to the big chain Italian restaurant. The food and atmosphere won’t be as good as Fiore but it will be fast. We arrived at our reservation time and were seated immediately. The staff was friendly and patient as we took some time to make a decision on our Entrée. We started with a glass of Merlot along with Manila clams and a spinach salad. My wife had tiger prawns in a parmesan sauce over linguine. I had the Lamb shank with grilled vegetables. Both were excellent. The lamb shank could be a regular item for me if not for the other items on the menu which I’m anxious to try. We finished with A creampuff with chocolate and banana sauce and chocolate decadence. Our meal was served with perfect timing and satisfying portions. By the time we finished our meal we were full but not uncomfortable. The bar is prominent and well stocked with wine and beer. They don’t serve hard liquor but you’ll come for the food and wine anyway. We have recommended Fiore in the past and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. Give them a try. I can’t imagine you would be disappointed. Remember to make Reservations and relax.
The food was amazingly good and the service was gracious and attentive. The pasta portions were just right and the sauces were delicious. The tiramisu was some of the best I’ve ever had. The server recommended a delicious wine and overall this was an excellent dining experience!
We were very impressed. Had to make a last minute reservation for New Years Eve. They accommodated us and even went out of their way to hold our reservation as we were running very late. As an option, they said if we were running too much later that they would be happy to hold seats at the bar to make sure we were able to eat dinner before we went to a party. The food was excellent. The waitress/wait staff was excellent. We had the vegetarian lasagne and the mushroom ravioli. I will definitely be back for both of these items. The only slight disappointment was that they only serve beer and wine. No full bar. But for food this good, I will easily survive! I will recommend this restaurant to everyone I know.
Restaurant is very quiet, pleasant people, great service and outstanding food. A total delight.
Small, but quaint, always friendly. Service a little slow. More waiters needed. Food very good.
We originally started going to Fiore years ago, when it was one of the few restaurants
open on Christmas day. Now, despite all the other options, this is still a very special place to us. First, compared to comparable Italian restaurants, the prices are very reasonable. We were greeted with great warmth when we walked in and seated immediately. We were offered a beverage right away. We ordered an appetizer while we struggled to choose which of the alluring entrees we wanted. The appetizer came very quickly, as did the entrees as soon as we'd completed the appetizer. I had the delicious Fettuccine Gamberi pasta, with Tiger shrimp (perfectly cooked!), crab and a creamy parmesan sauce. It was exquisite. My adult son had the lamb shank, which melted off the bone, deliciously juicy. No room for dessert!
A wonderful meal on Christmas Day. First-time visit we intend to make it a yearly occasion on Christmas food was very good atmosphere very good we enjoyed every bit of it thank you
Great food and good service. Will definitely visit again.
Only serves beer and wine. One guest would have enjoyed a cocktail if available. But could overlook this because of the outstanding food.
We found this restaurant to be open on Christmas but ended up there on Christmas Eve. A good local place. The food was excellent. I would recommend it for authentic Italian cuisine.
The specials tonight were amazing and we had the owner as our waiter. Very solid dining spot. Always enjoy the food
The food and drinks were great. The server was nice; however, it seemed like we were forgotten about most of the time. Priorities were other tables instead. Tried to call for drink refills and more bread to go with the lunch but never got helped.
Given its location [ next to KMart & Payless shoes in a strip mall in Clayton] Fiore is a complete, absolute surprise. Some of the very best Italian food in the East Bay. An Example, on the menu are braised short ribs, served with potato - a standard, but I asked to substitute pasta. The gracious server asked me what kind of pasta [ type and sauce].. I replied "let the chef decide" The chef put a tender, delicious and large portion of short rib on top of fettuccine with a marvelous ragu - wonderful.
Other dished were pumpkin and goat cheese ravioli, crab cakes, bolognese fusilli and a spectacular slow roast duck.
Yes, it's out of the way, but oh sort worth it..
Had a lovely time. Food and service were all great. Will definitely be back!
As always good food and ambience. Usually easy to get a reservation.
Excellent food and service and special neighborhood ambiance.
Another fantastic experience at Fiore. The quality of their pasta beats any other Italian restaurant in the East Bay.
