 (San Francisco)·Dined 2 days ago

The most miserable dinning experience in recent memory. The place was cramped and noisy. We were sat next to a group of rowdy and vulgar businessmen. We can hardly hear ourselves the entire meal. The food was average at best. The roasted carrots with my chicken was completely undercooked. Portion for salad was so tiny it was laughable. $30 Seafood stew was bland and came with mostly mussels sprinkle with a couple of scallops and shrimps. My friend’s $36 steak was underwhelming at best. The best thing about the whole meal was the cheesecake tartlet. It was soft and creamy on top of cherry or cranberry sauce. But by that time I couldn’t wait to finish and leave. This wasn’t my first time being there but the experience made me regret picking it for my birthday dinner.

Valentine’s Day prix fixe menu was wonderful, our reservation was a bit late at night so by the time we got seated and started eating the tables around us cleared out and it was pretty private. It was absolutely wonderful!

Frisee salad w grapefruit left a lot to be desired. 'Famous' roast chicken skin was completely black as were the carrots that came with it. I expect a higher standard for the price point.

a casual but nicely dressed folks.

Lovely comfortable ambiance ; the meal was enjoyable. Started with a salad described as radicchio with quinoa; however, it should’ve been described as quinoa with traces Radicchio . I enjoyed it but felt being described as the salad was misleading.

Main course of duck confit with white beans was fabulous. The duck was crispy and moist not greasy at all and the white beans added a comforting complement to the duck. Would have loved a cheese course to finish the meal but alas the restaurant does not offer. Note to restaurant, why not? With all the great she’s available in San Francisco and the French bistro styling of the restaurant seems like a natural to have on the menu.

With all the wonderfulness the restaurant offers in food and ambience, it was unfortunate I thought that the service did not measure up. Maybe the waiter was overworked but he was very inattentive, and I had to wave to him to gain his attention to attend to us several times during the meal.

All in all an enjoyable occurrence and I will go back to Florio with the hope that the service picks up.

My wife and I had a great meal and time once again at Florio! We started at the bar and had a couple fantastic cocktails. We moved to our table and had one of the best dinners in the many times we've been up to San Francisco. My wife ordered the Pappardelle with braised beef cheek sugo, marsala, manchego and I ordered the Pan Roasted Chicken. Both dishes were to die for!

Thanks again Florio for making our anniversary dinner amazing!!

Absolutely spectacular food, great atmosphere, beautiful bar with creative drinks. We are lucky to have it in our neighborhood. The only reason I did not rate service a 5 this last meal was that they were extremely busy on New Years Eve. Normally, it’s a 5. It was my #1 choice for New Years.

This is a small but bustling neighborhood restaurant on Fillmore and Sutter. We had warm olives and mussels to start. The olives were mild, and reminded me of Positano. The mussels were typical in broth and served with crustini. We had the chicken and the seafood stew. I had the seafood stew which was generous in a thick white fish, prawns, clams, mussels all in a very light lobster red sauce with a kick. Loved it. I passed on the wagyu beef. The service was excellent and friendly.

This is a perfect SF restaurant for locals and visitors alike . It is small and welcoming . Simple but interesting menu . A cozy warm friendly interior with a kind efficient wait staff who seem to care about the client and the restaurant . This is a refuge amidst the stark new restaurant design ; communal tables : loud noisy environment that is often the case in San Francisco . Here is a delicious restaurant that is a hold out for intimate dining that serves good food and makes the visitor so comfortable and pleased that they will return often .
