Went for our anniversary and had a great time. The expanded outdoor seating is very nice and as always the food and service were excellent.
They did an amazing job, especially during the pandemic.
Food was amazing, as was the service. Love coming here!
loved the lamb ragu all the pasta dishes were excellent except the gnocchi which was soft
AJ was a great server! He made my birthday special. Scallops were perfect. Tasty craft cocktail. Everything was so nice
Marco!!! You’re the best
We celebrated our 1 year anniversary. Our server, Marco, made our experience absolutely incredible. From accommodating our photo request to our entree selection to dessert it was more than we could’ve asked for. Michael wrote a Happy Anniversary card to us. I’ve never had an experience like this before and am sharing this with our friends so they can be as pampered as we were.
Always a pleasure!!!!
Nice evening outside. Service was attentive and not hovering.
It’s an okay place with okay food. Wasn’t completely blown away with ambiance or food taste.
Service was okay as well.
Probably won’t be coming back with all the other options available
Floriana has managed to transition to out door street dining flawlessly -- they don't skimp on space between tables (>6 feet) and have still maintained their phenomenal service and food quality. We now go here weekly.
Great dinner & wine along with wonderful service.
Loved the food. Great service. Filet Mignon was delicious. Would recommend.
Incredible value for restaurant week. Food was phenomenal and service was spectacular. Highly recommend Floriana.
Had brunch. Was very busy so it took about 45 minutes to get our food order. Server was very nice the times he did talk to us. I’ve been before so I know it’s not regular. Will def be back and always recommend for brunch
Marco is a fantastic server. He made great wine recommendations and was very friendly without being overbearing. This is my second time at Floriana (first time sitting inside). I enjoyed myself just as much as I did the first time. I do have to say nothing tops the Buratta Ravioli. Impeccable!
On a recent visit this week to Floriana, my friend and I were treated to something really special on Sunday evening. It was great to see the restaurant brimming with customers once again (outside and on the first floor inside as well), after the hiatus experienced during the virus. The restaurant was humming like a finely-tuned machine and the quality of the food was back up to its exceptional quality once again. Our server, Marco, was in great form, treating us with the style and elegance which he is famous for. The manager, Bat, was everywhere - but making sure he added the personal touch to our experience. A. J. was his charming self and even Maria added a surprise recommendation for wine which was exceptional to be sure. Bravo and compliments all around. We will, of course, be back.
Always great food and service!
Sat outside. Great service. Wine was an issue but the manager handled it very professionally. Food was amazing!
Would recommend this place for any meal! Probably our favorite restaurant in DC!
Great place for great food and drink. We sat outside socially distanced and felt very safe. Will go back again!
Always a great meal! The patio is a great option especially since no one wants to go insid these days.
This was our first time dining here and we were extremely impressed. The service was perfect and the food was amazing. Extremely fresh and delicious! We will definitely be back.
We were outside during the days of the Trumpvirus but the food was great! The storm that night allowed the temperature to drop about 20 degrees. I love their Caesar salad and they do fish really well. Nice pairing with wines as well.
I appreciate that all the staff wore masks and took care when talking with us. The service was especially great.
We got sick the day after.
We sat outside on one of the tables on the street. It was lovely.
Always amazing food, great service. A hardworking staff and manager who go above and beyond. Every course was delicious and they’ve done a great job keeping the dining experience feel special even with new COVID preventions- everyone wore a mask and tables were amply spaced, and they had a special outdoor dining space.
Muscles were awesome and the Sunday gravy is what you think about when you think Italiam red sauce. To cap it off the service could not have been better.
We had a great time enjoying brunch here! Great service and good food.
Wonderful food and experience - as a family of 5 we could still enjoy fine food and drink and impress the children with a nice location and quick food.
I had a lovely birthday dinner and a free drink... what else could I ask for!?
Great place! Service was excellent and food tasty.
Nice brunch on a Sunday early afternoon. The french toast was delicious. The salmon and egg on a muffin was very good. The sausage sandwich was okay. Service was great even when they were short staffed. Nice relaxing table under canopy to shade from the blazing sun. Try it, you will like it.
This was one restaurant where we could both social distance and eat good food. The waiter Michael was great! Definitely a repeat is in order
The COVID precautions thru take make dining feel safe and pleasant. Great staff, scrumptious food!
Outside dining experience was fantastic. Highly recommend going there. It was quieter then normally inside. The food was well prepared and presented. Had a great dinner for our anniversary.
Awesome food and service
