What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.7

We typically love ourselves some Michael White. Though his new hotel restaurant Ai Fiori is a sprawling space with more room than they know what to do with. Set inside The Setai, this is a bit of a cookie cutter hotel restaurant - one that isn't bad, but just isn't quite our style.

Ratings 7.5-8.0:These are restaurants that are reliable, tasty, and particularly good for whatever we have deemed them “Perfect For.” Hit up a 7.7 for Date Night with confidence, as long as you don’t need the restaurant to be the most interesting thing that happens that night.

A wonderful 50th birthday dinner — I ordered a cake in advance, and it was spectacular, as was the food, service and ambiance. Ai Fiori’s front of the house team was welcoming, professional, and kind to my guest with dietary restrictions. We would go back for another special occasion. Def recommend.

Our main course had a piece of plastic in it, had to return it. They took it off our check, but the way they dealt with it was not commensurate with a Michelin Star Restaurant.
Service is ok, but people bringing food can’t pronounce of name the food they are bringing, forget about any follow up questions to them - ether no answer or something you can’t decipher at all.

Where do I begin? Beautiful lovely staff and wonderful food. Tasting menu leaves you very full and you can try a little bit of everything they have to offer. Extensive wine menu offerings. 5-star experience.

Walked in with high expectations. Hostesses were extremely pleasant and professional. Service on the floor left a lot to be desired. Was pretty much reprimanded by the captain for speaking quietly when placing drink order. Went with TravelZoo voucher for 7-course tasting menu, and wondered if experience would’ve been better if we didn’t have said voucher. Regular wine pairing and sommelier selection wine pairing was differentiated in the fact that they served from bottles ranging between 100-150 for regular and 250+ for sommelier select, but no other difference except price point. Food was awesome (amuse bouche, foie gras torchon, octopus, ravioli, halibut, steak, cheese, intermezzo, dessert). Wines were great with the exception of the very generic descriptions of each wine (basic origin, always ‘great producer’, when nothing else to talk about mentioned vintage). Just lackluster service from captain and sommelier. Again, had high expectations for Michelin restaurant. Perhaps our fault for bringing voucher.

Food is very good, but not truly exceptional. Best are the pastas. Always rich, flavorful and just the right texture. The scallop crudo appetizer was excellent. Desserts were OK. Service is very attentive, friendly and not stuffy. Nouse level is more than acceptable for goid conversation, but tables can be a bit close. A bit oricey, but you cone away feeling you had a good experience.

23rd anniversary dinner, and the experience was amazing. Each course was beautifully presented and tasted delicious, service was top notch while understated. We got a wonderful gift with a card signed by all the staff, it was beyond our expectations. A true Michelin star experience!

The table seating was a little crowded with a table for 2 sitting between other tables. The larger tables seem to have more room. Ambiance was very nice and service was good although for the price I certainly expected a little more attention. The tasting menu was delicious and 7 small portions was just enough to be full. The pasta course was by far the best. Regular coffee was not included and certainly was not worth the price. I would say overall the value was less compared with other similar restaurants. Dress was classy to business casual with only 2 men wearing jackets and no one with ties. So despite the little picky items noted, overall it’s a great restaurant with delicious food if you’re willing to pay a little extra.

Overall Place is great and worth coming back although I’m not sure I’d give it the MStar rating they’ve accomplished based on our experience.

Don’t get me wrong, place is nice and food was good, but the expectations I believe one should have for a place achieving such high marks by the industry itself lead me to feel when I leave, it should be memorable enough that I clearly recall all the servings and more importantly, am going to tell everyone I know they should check out this place for an amazing experience... neither of which holds true for myself nor my 13 year old son (who does in fact have a pretty stellar pallet).

If your local to this spot and looking for a fantastic date night, business dinner and dining experience, your not going wrong by coming here. But if your considering a special trip, I’d probably consider other options.

It was just ok. It’s supposed to have gotten a Michelin star. The food was cooked ok, just not that exciting or imaginative.

My experience: I arrived was greeted and sat at my table. They give me bread that is not warm and a bit dry. Meh. Butter is at least spreadable. Good. Amuse bouche. Wonderful! I had high hopes at this point. First course soup with 4 “coins” of lobster. It’s ok. Second course veal tortellini. Sauce is good. Otherwise unexciting. Third course meat dish vitello. Bleh. So boring. Kind of tough meat. Nothing whatever interesting. For dessert the Budino. Acceptable.

Overall. Not really worth the price. That being said, the waitstaff and service in general was up to standard for this caliber of restaurant. The ambience pleasant. The food presentation, somewhat thoughtful.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Ai Fiori. We had very early reservations but the staff was very accommodating and attentive. The service was impeccable and the food superb! My only complaint is that (as many restaurants do) the tables afforded to open table reservations tend to be the worst in the restaurant.

We had 7 course tasting menu. I t was really amazing. Every course was delicious. huge wine list, too big for most guests. Very impressive to say the least. Service was very good as well. Only negative about the service was that they did not decant our wine. We didn't ask for it but others had their wine decanted.

We all ordered the 4-course Prix-Fixe menu. The antipasti were good, the pasta was terrific, and both the entree and dessert were fantastic! The only letdown was the service, which was wonky (for lack of a better word). For 3 of the 4 courses, our plates were mixed up (the right items were ordered, but the wrong plates were served to the wrong people). The sommelier was terrific, but the front waiter for the table kept hovering and apologizing for the plating mishaps. I wouldn't normally be so critical, but when you're spending upwards of $300 per person, these kinds of things throw the dinner and the occasion off balance, and can make things a bit awkward, pausing conversations, and making us, the diner, focus on what the service staff is doing, instead of enjoying the meal and our company. We were only 5 guests, so I would be wary if coming in with a large party of say, 10 or more.

There for my daughter’s 16th Birthday. The staff was wonderful; making her feel so special. They brought out a beautiful dessert for her with her name written on it, and she received a gift bag at the end of the meal. It included homemade Carmel corn, chocolate nuts, a copy of the menu signed by the chef, and a card signed by the staff. Truly first rate service!

The food and service were excellent, but the wine list could be better for those who don't own hedge funds or want to take out a home equity loan. The veal chop was the best I've eaten, and the squid ink pasta was very tasty but skimpy on the seafood.
Our servers were delightful.
