Wanted to try something new in the area. Food was really good. Service was good (when it was there). Took quiet a while to be seated by hostess / greeted at table by server. Restaurant wasn’t busy at all.

- Dessert presentation was really nice for a birthday. (Comes on a wooden board with nice writing)
- Burrata is so over priced, you only receive half of a small burrata. Ridiculous!!!!! most places serve the whole piece (full ball) as a portion.
- service was very slow and they weren’t even that busy
- venue and open kitchen is nice

One little detail didn’t turn out as it should have. I asked for a little surprise at the end for the newly weds such as a little chocolate note on their desert. Yet I found out when my guests arrived they were congratulated upon arrival which kind of spoiled the moment for me. Otherwise all was excellent

We were here at 6PM on a Sunday. We had a special occasion, a 94th birthday and had notified the restaurant in advance that we wanted a quiet table so the guest of honour would be able to participate in the conversation. Sadly, no special effort was made by the establishment in advance and no recognition of the event was made by them. They did not even have the bubbly on ice as I had requested when I called to confirm the reservation.

Despite all of that, we sat comfortably, the food was well prepared and the service was good when we arrived but declined noticeably as the restaurant filled.

I was surprised that the Prix Fixe menu items were prepared differently than the same dishes on the main menu. Made me feel "cheated" when I saw them plated next to each other as if they lied when they offered the better price. However, the taste was excellent, and the quantities were sufficient. The place was packed when we left at 8:00, in time for Grandma's bedtime.

Very disappointed after having booked a Valentine’s Day dinner at Fabrica..walked out after 15 minutes for being ignored by staff, sat next to a dirty table , having looked at the menu I found it to be a little overpriced too, and the place was practically empty! Too bad, I was really looking forward to eating there as I live in the area , gladly there are lots of other options and Found somewhere else that saved the day

This was the first visit for my 2 friends and they will definitely return! We experienced a warm and genuine hospitable welcome and outstanding service throughout our visit. Our culinary selections were delectable and ample and each team member was professional and friendly, engaging in light conversation.

My one suggestion is that the server should always ask if the diners want separate cheques prior to presenting a single cheque.

We will return! Thanks.

We frequent this restaurant fairly often. Service for this meal was terrible. Gave wrong food to few guests, long time before waiter came back to table, quite disappointed. Had to wait quite a while to flag down someone for the bill.

I loved lamb shank: amazing taste and great value for the place. Cheese and meat platter were subpar and not worth the money. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. Will be back but won't order apps.

I was very excited to have a pizza on this occasion .I was disappointed... The pizza was not hot, and lacked flavour .My husband had the arugula and Prosciutto and I the Fungi.It was a busy Saturday evening,perhaps a factor to consider.

Food was very good. Service could improve. It was 15 minutes or more before the wait staff came to our table.
Once we ordered food was quickly delivered and very good but the waitress disappeared. So no bread, or extra wine or even coffee was offered.

Unimpressed. I asked for bread to go with pasta but was told they ran out of bread when it was a 12:30 lunch on Saturday. Also we booked but they lost our booking.

The two pasta dishes we ordered were amazing as were the fries my guest ordered as an appetizer. Where the disappointment came from was the Carpaccio appetizer. It did not come out as was indicated on the menu on line nor the one we were provided. The waitress indicated they had recently changed the dish and I must have received an old menu. In addition it was over dressed and the beef came out cooked as a result of the excessive vinegar in the dressing. All that being said, the gnocchi was amazing.

Feb-1-2020 I made a 5pm reservationfor 4 for a celebration dinner. We were all disappointed with the food, as we have all previously dined at Fabbrica. What happened? It was a colossal disappointment! My husband orderedBistecca Fiorentina; that's not what he was served! Does your chef have any idea what a Bistecca Fiorentina is? What was on my husband's plate was an absolute joke. Also, my friend it was dried out & tasteless. We feel cheated out of our hard earned money! So sad!

Food was quite good and although it was a touch pricey, the cost was still in line with the quality of the food and service we received. The Server was truly exceptional - I regret not getting her name so I could specifically call her out here, but management really needs to hire more people like her.

I've been to Fabbrica many times as it's close to my office. We ordered the burrata salad to start which had a small amount of burrata for the price. I then ordered the squid ink pasta with mussels which was okay but not great. I expect a restaurant of this calibre to deliver great meals, ones worth remembering. This meal was not memorable.
