I went with a business friend for a catch-up and to talk a little business. As a result, we weren't the typical diners who order and proceed on a predictable pace. For each step (drinks, appetizers, entrees) we were never ready--our server had to return 2 or 3 times--always soon enough to make sure we were taken care of but never so much as to make us feel rushed. It was about the best restaurant service I have experienced--informal but intuitively attentive.

My focus on the service isn't to slight the food. My Grilled Spanish Octopus, particularly, and Creole Spiced Shrimp and Catfish Gumbo both were excellent.

We went on a very cold night I will admit to that. However inside La Fia was FREEZING!!! Everyone including the men kept their coats on, the chandeliers were moving there was such a cold draft. The waitress said they had space heaters to help yet we didn't see any. They should have gone to Home Depot and put heaters right by the tables it was that bad. I know the foie gras was amazing but as the dinner progressed we all got colder and couldn't enjoy the food. Not sure if we'll try it again. They should've lightened the mood and had us leaving on a good note and given us irish coffees on the house for dessert.

I took my girlfriend for NYE dinner and it was well worth it. The food was very nicely presented and everything had great flavor. Our server, Natasha, was absolutely excellent. Ambience was exactly what we wanted for a relaxed NYE.

We dined here on New Year's Eve - a return visit - and thoroughly enjoyed another splendid meal. The service - from "let me take your coats" as we entered to the warm and personable greeting at the table - was really nice. You feel welcomed here. We started with cocktails - my wife chose the "Perfect Margarita" while I went for a Manhattan. Both were well-made and tasty, and enjoyed without feeling rushed. Then came the made-in-house bread. Wow. I've got to say right here that I would have been perfectly happy at this point to order an entire loaf, some cheese and a bottle of wine, and call that dinner. This bread is heaven: a perfect crust that is crunchy but not roof-of-the-mouth piercing, and a delicate interior. We were told they once sold it by the loaf; I suggested they restart this practice! But onward. La Fia was featuring a generous prix fixe menu that would have put most of its contemporaries to shame. A LOT of choices - seven first courses and 10 entrees. The wine list is extensive and includes a generous listing of wine by the glass. My wife ordered the La Madrid malbec; our server suggested the Argentinian winery's cab as a nice pairing with the steak I ordered. She was right. Both had a nice spiciness that took them to a different level. The rest of our really enjoyable dinner went like this: appetizers of warm Medjool dates and smoked salmon tartare; first courses of roasted beet salad and the grilled Spanish octopus (order this!); Kennett Square Forest Mushroom Risotto and Petit Filet Mignon as our entrees; and a splendid dessert trio that included a delicate, not-overly-sweet tiramisu. That was one of the best steaks I've ever had; everything was literally perfect. It was a bit pricey - $60 apiece, not including drinks, so the tab including our tip was about $200. But it was worth every penny. We'll return once again. La Fia is a real diamond.

Went there for New Years eve with family. Limited menu due to special occasion. All food was good but small in quantity for the price. Will go back on normal night to try their regular menu.

The food was terrific; we loved the bread, as always. The server was exceptionally attentive--top of the line. The only reason I do not rate the overall restaurant with five stars is the pricing. Dinner was a bit on the pricey side.

Wonderful evening out with friends. Food and service was exceptional. Bar keep made great drinks. Very pleasant atmosphere. Moderate to energetic noise level as restaurant filled. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would eat there again.
