Hardly anyone was in there. The menu was not great. Appetizers were not good (the French fries were good though). We left and did not eat dinner there. Pictures online were deceiving. The old fashioned drink table side prep was best part of experience.

Really great brunch menu with familiar classics as well as Mediterranean specialties that are well-executed and provide a balanced menu. The Shakshuka skillet, Muffuletta, and chicken and waffles were all excellent. Interesting beverage menu. The specialty cocktails were good but a little on the pricey side. Would definitely recommend for brunch.

We had a nice time, and the service was great, however, the concept of the restaurant and menu was hard to follow. The food was very rich, to the point where I could only have a few bites of something that was large enough to be a singular meal. We both left with stomach aches due to the richness.

Went for a business lunch and was very disappointed. Food was mediocre, especially for the price point. An $18 steak salad should not leave someone feeling hungry! Service was also lacking. We were one of three tables in the whole place and food still took 35 minutes to come out. It’s unfortunate, because it’s a gorgeous, iconic space, but I won’t be returning.

When we arrived for our 1pm reservation on a Saturday we were literally the only people in the restaurant. No other diners to be found. This made for a slightly weird vibe. Because we were the only ones there our service was excellent. Overall this place is fine but I don’t think we’ll be back. The crepes were ok but were slightly rubbery tasting. Our mains were tasty but nothing to write home about.

We are so happy to see someone in the area that once was the Forum Cafeteria. David Fhima has a good job with complementing the Art Deco decor. Moving the bar up front is a great idea. We loved the food with the French and Moroccan twists. Thank you, David!!

Somehow, restaurants like this need to survive and be supported. There are many good restaurants downtown despite what some media/restaurant critics who live in the 'burbs thnk. The food at Fhima is great, the space is magnificent.

This was our first visit to Fhima's and we quickly were smitten! The decor is fabulous, our waiter was so personable, the owner stopped by and was so charming...and the food was amazing! I was initially sad that the Noir et Blanc was off the menu as that was my reason for trying Fhima's...but now I have a great excuse to return when it hits the menu again. Can't wait to enjoy the outdoor patio if warm weather ever arrives. Love this place!

Superior dinner with great service. The presentation for the lamb and creme brulee were memorable. Both were very flavorful. Food should be a full sensory experience, and this was: terrific smells, wonderful visuals, and fantastic flavor. Highly recommended. I also loved the wild rice mushroom soup and Les Trois Couronnes wine.
