    All around great experience. Service, food, price and wonderful quiet environment. It was like dining in someone’s home. Tables are tight but most are only 2 or 4 people so noise was not an issue. My only wish was to slow down food delivery. Our dinner was served before we had finished our appetizers.

    It’s not surprising that Floriana has been a DC stalwart for decades. Everything is perfect: the gorgeous interior, the gracious hospitality of the ENTIRE staff, the delicious food, and a terrific wine list. We look forward to returning often!

    We came in the afternoon and they still had brunch menu. First we waited for 5 minutes until someone’d greet us at entrance, then there were very loud guests who were swearing every now and then. The food was ok, enough to fill you and give energy but not much more.

    We went for DC restaurant week. Probably the best service we have ever had in the city. We took our waitress’s recommendations and it was spot on. Food was perfect. Highly recommend and thank you for the great experience.

    We tried Floriana for restaurant week, which was an extraordinary deal. The food was amazing. The shrimp and scallop risotto was incredible and my partner and it was the best tiramisu I've ever had. I can't afford it often, but I'm adding it to my list of special places,

    Flawless and unobtrusive service by Kyle and the team made the amazing food taste even better! You could tell that the other diners were sharing the same experience we were by their body language and smiles on their faces. Glad a friend told me about Floriana, can't wait to go back to explore the next iteration of their affordable and seasonal menu.

    After eating at Floriana for a number of years it was disappointing to order lasagna that was messy and covered with mozzarella. Hopefully the food in the future when we dine there will be better prepared and presented, and back to their usual delicious food. I still recommend Floriana. It may have been just one of those nights.

    Our server was not as attentive as other we know in the restaurant. It is a favorite place for us to dine. Unfortunately this time the scallops lacked flavor. Others found their meals delicious as usual. A little less egg in the Caesar salad maybe. Overall an always good experience!

    I went for brunch and made the reservation though OpenTable for 2:30 pm. Arrived a few minutes before, not crowded and when the person came to the table after 5 minutes we were told that the kitchen was closing at 2:30 pm and had to place our orders, not that big an issue but why allow people to reserve if you are closing the kitchen when arriving? Overall a very loud two rooms. We were seated in the back and overall about less than half the tables were taken. The room overall was very loud with the parties taken. Hard to hear the person sitting across the table loud. Food is limited to breakfast foods for the brunch and overall nothing special here. Service due to one person servicing all the tables was slow like getting water filled. Overall felt the overall experience was off and would not return or recommend. Surprised by the overall reviews, maybe just not a good brunch place.

    We had been trying to try Floriana for years but could never get a reservation. Finally, we got in yesterday. This is an old DC townhouse that has been minimally changed to accommodate a restaurant. We were seated on a table upstairs on what used to a be bedroom. We felt a little cramped. Our dishes were fine, but nothing really out of the extraordinary. One of us had a steak, another had the rabbit pasta, one had the Sunday gravy and I had the lasagna. Everything was adequate, but that’s it. I will go there again and I will even recommend it, but I would not go out of my way to go there again when DC has so many options, some across the street from it. I hope that they step up their game because the place has a lot of potential.

    Tables are way too close, making it very hard to have your own conversation without shouting. Not the vibe I seek for a nice Italian restaurant or special occasion. Main courses were good though.
