The place was 100% dead for happy hour on a Thursday. The food was alright. They couldn't figure out how to use my open table gift card. I won't be going back.
Great place to come for lunch or dinner. Staff is very friendly, our server Tyler was fantastic and his suggestions were spot on for a yummy lunch.
Upscale food in a bar restaurant
I've been there for brunch several times. The updated brunch menu is really good - one of the better brunch menus in the Gaslamp. Both the churros and flight of waffles are very tasty, shareable starters. Everyone enjoyed their entrees and the bottomless mimosas are always a hit. The only downside is they seem to understaff, so expect a long wait for the food to come out.
Food was pretty good! Our server Brooke was awesome.
Delicious buffalo cauliflower
We have eaten here many times in the past few years and this is the first time the food was really unacceptable. The scallops were VERY salty and the potatoes came out cold. Just ruined the evening. With so many choices in San Diego, I don't think we'll give Florent a second chance.
The place looks cool and inviting, but there were very few people and I can understand why. The service was slow and the food was just okay. They also didn’t get our order right. One positive: The bar tender was friendly.
Delicious food, energetic, friendly service. We will go here again.
Super fun atmosphere! Great food and drinks
Great vibrant place with delicious food.
Flatbread pizza was not flat or crispy. Had to search through a pile of cabbage to find my grilled fish on my taco. Neither item was worth the price, which was reasonable. Flavors not complimentary.
It was St. Patrick's Day and we went in for a bite before bar hopping. The menu was great and had a large variety of items. The problem was that this restaurant felt like it was inside a hip hop nightclub. As our group is considerably older than the 20-somethings who were the vast majority of patrons, it just wasn't for us. I'm sure it's fine if that is your age group, but for us the music was blaring so loud that we couldn't even have the slighted conversation. The service was horrendous and we waited and waited for everything. In all fairness, it was St. Patrick's day so it may have been worse than normal, but we will not be returning.
It was awesome!!! Brunch food was great && awesome value! 10/10 recommend
Stellar specialty drinks. Bartender (owner) made a really cool pair of drinks for me and TJ.
Food was also exceptional, and the gigantic TV will make any sports fan’s day!
Music was too loud for eating hours, but the food was great and the server was friendly and accommodated our larger group very well.
Love this place! I came with a large group at a conference and they were very accommodating. The jalapeño tacos were amazing. I brought my family back (all the way from Arizona) the next week and we had brunch and it was also delicious. Lunch is out of this world though - and it’s never super crowded.
Wonderful! Good was delicious, our server was attentive & the music was awesome!
Yummy food, great ambiance in the bar, and great value!
Great fish tacos! Good daily specials. Perfect for our pre-concert dinner.
Great place to get a good bite to eat, the ambiance was my favorite part. Service was quick and prices are very reasonable for the food portions.
Was told no room available for 1. Made a reservation for 20:00 showed up and still been told no room available.
Got given what must have been the worst table, wobbly and wobbly chair.
Asked to be moved after entree and had to ask for my dessert has it was not been delivered.
In all a disappointing experience.
Our server Brooke was amazing. Our food choices were disappointing.
Everything was amazing!! I will definitely go again!!
The food was good but our waitress Tiarra (I hope I spelled her name correctly but she goes by T) was excellent. She was very attentive and just a pleasure to be with. Thanks T, we will definately ask for you next time we go.
Early Valentine’s Day dinner 💖 Everything was delicious! Our hostess, server and waitress were very nice. We’ll be back!
This place is so much fun!! Great amazing food and great music on Friday nights!!!
Our group of 6 gathered at Florent for a business lunch. It was an easy stroll from the conference center and our table was ready when we arrived. Food was delivered promptly, all orders were correct and our waiter was very attentive. Everyone was pleased with their meals. What more could you ask for?
The Florent came to us as a surprise. We were looking for a restaurant in walking distance of the Lyceum, which was serving dinner as early as 4:00 pm. It was also our hope that the restaurant was still serving the restaurant week menu. Florent met all these criteria.
The restaurant week menu was very creative, generous, and delicious. Unfortunately, they ran out of the lamb, which presented a challenge because we chose our wine around the lamb. We did understand that it was last day of the restaurant week menu, however.
The food and service are several notches above their sports bar decor, with numerous large screen videos playing football. I suggest that they create a separate room or space for those of us who just want to enjoy good food and good conversation.
I'll return but will go at a quiet time and try to sit where I'm not directly facing a TV screen.
Our server was Danielle. She was excellent! Food was good, and really like the Brussels sprouts.
Our server T (or Tiara?) was fantastic. Would come back just for her! Thanks for a great night
Fun, boisterous restaurant/bar. Service was good, food took awhile to received and was just ok. The manager came to apologize for the wait and treated us to a complimentary glass of wine, which was nice of her.
Great food and service, situated on a corner so you’ve got an amazing view of the street action, funky decor, various seating styles to match the way you like to eat, just a solid choice for dining amongst many options in the area:)
We were visiting from out of town and only tried the bunch menu, but we were disappointed. We chose this place because it offered duck bacon. We ordered the duck bacon and waited for about an hour before we were told that they were receiving a delivery of the bacon this morning and had to thaw it. Perhaps because of the rushed process, it did not taste great. Our eggs were also very much undercooked. The rest of the dishes were ok.
Definitely enjoyed the Buffalo Cauliflower and Veggie Burger along with a Latina's Rose!!
Florent has a warm atmosphere. It's very spacious and the staff was knowledgeable and very attentive. We were there on taco Tuesday which resulted in great discounts. Fun, lively and comfortable spot!
Very busy on Christmas Day but we had reservations so they got us right in. Great service and food.
Hamburger was burnt
Sea Bass over cooked
Fish tacos was excellent
Food and service were good. Just way too loud for our taste. Too loud to even talk without yelling. That’s fine for a bar but not a dinner.
