Don’t judge a book by its cover. Great food! Great service!
We showed up to the doors closed saying it was closed for a private event. No one told us ahead of time
Luckily the good old standby chomp was down the street.
I made a Open Table reservation thinking it would be busy but it wasn't at all. There was maybe 14 people counting us and we were greeted by manager who was very nice. Then we didn't see him or a waiter/waitress for at least 8 minutes. Ordered drinks and that took at least 10 minutes and the bar had 4 people. Finally we ordered our meal and it took extremely long to get considering it wasn't busy at all. Had to go to the bar ourselves to get refills on our drinks. Not sure why the service was so bad unless they were out back visiting. Food was good and I only ordered appetizers. We won't be going back sorry to say.
We enjoyed a beautiful Christmas Eve dinner wi5 our family. Great servers and amazing food for all.
This was a spur of the moment pick that had our kind of food. Our visit was early evening and the atmosphere was quiet and pleasant . The food was pleasingly good.
Florentine's is our go to Restaurant for weekend dinners. We normally bring family and friends but this last visit was just my wife and myself. The service is outstanding. We normally are attended by Silvano but all the servers are great. We have never had a bad dish here.
The food is always temperature hot and tasty. The pasta is always prepared properly and not overcooked. The Rib Eye Steak, my favorite is large and great tasting.
I guess that you can tell that I like this place.
Try it and you would be hooked.
Food was good. Service adequate. There was no one in the restaurant but us. It was a cute place but nothing that special. Don't know if we'll be back.
This restaurant has excellent food and reasonable priced drinks and wine.
Good selection of Pasta Dishes, Seafood and Steak/Ribs.
Service is always top notch. Ask for Silvano and he will take great care of you.
Our server was new, a little nervous, but very attentive and provided excellent service. The food was good. But, the garlic mashed potatoes seemed processed or pureed. The vegetables were not overcooked. The veal piccata was very good and a nice portion.
I remembered Florentine's from the early 2000s and took business associates with me for dinner. The restaurant was not as well maintained as I remembered and mostly empty (Monday @ 6:30 pm). Prices were reasonable.
If you expect a burger place you place you probably won't be disappointed as much as I was
We just went to the Florentine Grill last Sunday for Mother's Day. I waited too long to make a reservation so all my usual spots were booked. I was able to get a reservation at the Florentine Grill which is in the area that my son lives. We all were very pleased with our meals. I got the veal piccota and it was excellent. I'm originally from the east coast and have had good veal piccota so I was very pleasantly surprised that it was so good and very reasonably priced at $17.99. My husband and son both got burgers and they said they were very good. They looked good. The atmosphere could be better. The booth we were in had a slit in the seat and the ladies restroom was dark and very old. Based on the food alone, I would go back. I would not recommend this restaurant for a special occasion that you would like a nice atmosphere but I do recommend it based on the quality of the food and price.
Had the Chicken Florentine and it was delicious. Was quiet, low key and relaxed atmosphere which made for a very pleasant and enjoyable experience.
Awesome service and people working here who will go above and beyond to make your dining experience memorable. Came in on a Friday night and loved that there was absolutely no wait and the food was SO SPECTACULAR!
Went out to eat with a friend and this place was perfect. Has both man favorite dishes as well as go-to restaurant favorite for the non-adventure guest. We had drinks along with our meals and they were delicious. Quiet atmosphere was great for talking and enjoying ourselves. No rush to leave. I look forward to coming here again.
The food was tasty, good quality ingredients and nice presentation. Service was attentive and friendly. This was our second time visiting and will definitely return!
Very good 😊 food
Enjoyed every bite
Very good service
WENT FOR VALINTINES DAY THIS IS OUR THIRD YEAR WE HAVE GONE. GREAT MEAL FOR A GREAT PRICE. SERVICE IS EXCELLENT. PEOPLE ARE FRIENDLY, HIGHLY RECOMMEND
A great an friendly atmosphere with well thought out and prepared meals at a reasonable price. Very much enjoyed the Valentines meal pairings as well as the cost per person. Nice to finally find a place not trying to take advantage of a special occasion. Joe Florentine is a pleasure to talk to as he makes the rounds. Classy Joint!!!
Good food and quiet where you can relax and enjoy. Will go back again as service was good
The food tasted good and the portions were generous. Two of us got sick from the food. Not sure why since the dinners were different. The server was not friendly and wasn't around much.
Pleasant local place that has been around a long time. I figured they must be doing something right. On a very slow evening, food was very great, service fine. Recommend. ..
Was fun. This is casual dining but the 'daily special' menu had a great selection. Chicken Marsala was cooked very well. Prices are excellent as well. Wine list is small but has good well thought selections. It is an open floor atmosphere that can be somewhat noisy when the bar has sporting events on TVs. So not a romantic data atmosphere unless he/she is into an active scene. Very well prepared food.
We found Florentine's online when we were looking for a place to eat before a play at the Maverick Theater. After reviewing the menu, we decided to give it a try. They offer happy hour specials every day from 4-9PM. That alone is a reason to go! They had some great appetizers so we opted for several of the small plates instead of dinner. We enjoyed the bacon-wrapped jalapenos and the habanero mango meatballs the most. Will definitely come back!
Arrived approximately 20 minutes before reservation time and we're seated immediately.
Service was very good. Recommend the Razzleberry Lemonades. Also, chicken skewers and the lobster mac were very good. I had one of the evening specials . . . veal scallopini(?). The veal was a bit overcooked and tough. However, the sauce was excellent. My friend had the chicken pesto penne -- pesto was overpowering.
Was over a barrel on an unexpected 9-person dinner party on X-mas eve. Used Open Table and found Florentine Grill. Really worked out well. It was less expensive than I had anticipated and everyone enjoyed their dishes. From burgers to filet, the food was quite well done. Appetizers... spinach dip was great, but ceviche was just so-so. Service was a little spotty as it WAS Christmas eve, but Josh did well. There seemed to be two other businesses attached, Tuscany Club and Palapa...no idea what these were. Maybe I'll check them out next time.
We had an early dinner reservation. Seated on time. Waiter was very attentive. Excellent Lobster Mac-n-Cheese appetizer and Spinach/Cheese dip & chps appetizer. Wedge salad was great and a generouse portion. The Avacodo burger was great. Generouse portions of food. Very reasonable prices.
We arrived 15 minutes before the reservation. A sign on the window said it opened at 11:30 AM. The time was 11:45 AM. The restaurant was empty, except for someone sweeping the floor. I knocked on the window. A man opened the door and said very rudely that they are closed! I said we had a reservation at 12:00. He said, they will be open at 12:00. We waited until 12:00. The restaurant never opened! We left and found a much better place down the street! We will NEVER go back again! I recommend that this place be boycotted!
First time at this place with an impromptu reservation. The staff are very kind and very accommodating. The service is excellent and the door was great and priced right. I would go back and eat here again next time I'm in Fullerton.
Our party of 4 enjoyed a leisurely meal before going to a play at the Plummer Theater. We topped off our excellent meal with the Serious dessert for 4! Yum! The 20% off coupon made the meal an even better value.
The sausage dinner was excellent, but the yellow tail tuna dinner was too dry and not tasteful.
Reservations were made but not necessary the night we went but other time it will be crowded. Great wait staff. Ample portions. Reasonable prices. Fun night scene right downtown.
No where as good as previous visits. Redone menu was a real disappointment. Probably will not return.
wait staff was very good. entre was not beyond average.
I arrived at the restaurant at our confirmed time and the restaurant was closed. Guess I know why it was so easy to get a reservation.
We have gone here several times and each time I am pleased with the dish I ordered. THe food is pretty darn god and service is also good. It is part of the downtown Fullerton scene so can be quiet early and a hot spot later in teh evening. Also ahve multiple TVs for the sports fan but doesn't interfere with a nice dinner. Really nice date night for us and the food keeps edging up in my mind.
We missed having bread @ butter. The service was great. The food ranged from good to better than expected. Parking is a real problem and may prohibit future visits.
I went to Florentine's Grill to celebrate a friend's birthday. We were given a booth with some seeming. Our waitress, Marissa, was amazing! She truly went the extra mile. The food, service, dessert, and overall experience will be remembered for a long time.
Very good service, all 4 of us ordered different dishes and enjoyed our food. The staff was very attentive and it was obvious they were happy we chose to dine at their restaurant.
We chose this based on the varied menu. We had a fantastic experience. The mac n cheese and wings we had for appetizers were excellent. The choices for surf and turf we fun and we had the ribs and shrimp. Ribs were great; shrimp was ok. The pork chops were huge, juicy, flavorful. The sides were very good. The burger was delicious. We had more food than we ever imagined so no room for dessert. The owner is very friendly and chatted with us for quite a while. We thoroughly enjoyed the meal and look forward to bringing friends here.
We enjoyed the food and the bar drinks but mostly we loved the service. The waitress was very attentive and the manager kept checking on us.
They had a large variety of American and Italian food on the menu.
