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.

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 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.

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!

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.

Came to Florent for a birthday celebration with a couple friends and was very impressed!! Attentive service, fantastic food (with lots of vegetarian options), and all around great ambiance!

The food was better than expected. Appetizer - nacho wedges were delicious. Our dinner which was the carnitas tacos, flatbread of the day, and the jalapeño popper tacos were beyond great. It was rather slow due to the time of day, but our waitress disappeared numerous times and we had to keep waving her down when we need something. Overall helpful and great place, just wish her and staff were more attentive.
