Wonderful, lively and magical at the same time. Excellent food and service. One note to the restaurant - if someone orders a steak off the menu (a special, described by the server) it would have been helpful to mention that the steak costs $115! That was a bit of a shock when the bill arrived. Otherwise, great evening to celebrate our son’s UCLA graduation.

This place is great. The risotto dishes are fantastic. The bone-on filet mignon was remarkable. You must have the yellowtail appetizer! I wasn’t crazy about the wine selection, as it was all by the glass. Maybe I needed to ask for a wine list? Regardless, highly recommended and I look forward to visit again.

Great food and drinks! the spicy tuna tartare cones, chicken live mousse and the cavatelli are incredible.

The specials (steaks) are pretty expensive so order them after checking on the price.

Disappointed seating arrangement! We saw this place via TikTok because of its ambiance and cute outside seating arrangements. We made a reservation 4 weeks ahead to make sure we got the OUTSIDE seating. When we arrived, they seated us in a corner inside the restaurant instead. We asked to change the seating but they said no tables available without even trying to check. The whole time we were there we saw couple of outside empty tables. It was not filled at all until we were almost done with our dinner.
The disappointing seating arrangement made the whole dining experience less enjoyable, not worth the money for how expensive it is.
Besides the seating arrangement, I do enjoyed the drinks and service. But it’s hard to fully take in the dining experience since we didn’t get what we came here for.

They sat us at a table inside. We then asked to be outside but they told us the outside is all booked up. We accepted that statement and had our dinner inside. Another party who arrived after us had the same request… to which they told them that the outside was booked…. The party wasn’t taking that for an answer though and complained again and then was switched to being outside. That’s not fair. If you’re not going to accommodate one party then you shouldn’t do it for another right in front of the rejected parties faces.

Loved the open area dinning experience of this place. Perfect for brunch as the weather is starting to clear up. The staff was incredible and our waitress was beyond amazing. The food exceeded my already high expectations. Highly recommend and already planning to come back, but for dinner this time

Dinner was great. We ordered 3 apps, 2 pastas, 4 mains and 3 desserts plus 6 cocktails and 1 soft drink - $600 incl taxes before grat.

All dishes were 8/10. Exceptional were our two pastas - cavatelli with truffles and tortellini- 10/10.

Would definitely go back.

Honestly I never bother writing reviews but this place was fantastic, had a great time. The bottomless mimosas and margaritas were definitely aggressive for brunch when we went, but it ended up being amazing after you had a couple. Ambience and vibe is 10/10. Every single person working there was polite and courteous and acted like they wanted to be there. 10/10.

Front desk great. Seating excellent. Food was very well prepared and tasty. Everything we ordered was delish, but too many trufflee items on menu.. chef fetish? Lobster ink pasta excellent but lacked sufficient lobster and could have been hotter. Focaccia bread great. Brussel sprouts very good (should be at that price). Overall a V.G. experience but drink prices stupid. 12 or even 14 ok, but 16, 18, dumb. 4 stars due to price to value proposition.

This was my second time at Fia. The first time, My anniversary, we had to wait quite a while for our table, despite the fact that we had confirmed reservations, and many tables were open. They sent us to the bar, we ordered pricey drinks, finished then and the table still wasn’t ready. Got our dinner off to a bad start and I wasn’t anxious to return.

My daughter was in town for her birthday, and insisted on Fia. I was unable to get reservations for the weekend and took a 5:16 seating on Thursday night.

However, the dining experience this time changed my mind. We were seated on the terrace promptly, the service was amazing, and the cocktails and food delicious. Virtually everything that we ordered was presented beautifully, and incredibly tasty.

Fia is a find. The food is a bit unusual and totally fantastic. The Chicken Liver Mousse perfect (and accompanied by enough fruit compote to satisfy); the Roasted Cauliflower unusual and very tasty; the Lamb Chops a delight. One warning; the roasted corn on the cob, while it looks and tastes good isn't worth the price. But the star of the show was the Capellini with Lobster Bolognese. Who ever heard of that combo? Bolognese is traditionally a red meat sauce. But this was something altogether different. It defies description. Whatever it is it’s not a red meat sauce with lobster in place of another meat. Funky décor (a little discordant in light of the groundbreaking cuisine). Service staff superb (there when I wanted them, prompt action, gone when we wanted to talk and eat).

Rude front host. Upon arrival the boy working the front desk was showing us to our table which was inside and we requested previously a table in the outside patio, since that’s why people go to FIA to enjoy the outside patio. I told him we asked for a table outside and there were a few open tables but he didn’t want to seat us outside for whatever reason. I asked him why can’t we sit at one of those tables and his answer: “those are reserved for our IMPORTANT CUSTOMERS”. Wow. I’ve never been treated with such disrespect in my life. Every customer is important. He made it such a big deal that we wanted to sit outside and finally found us a table after what seemed like forever waiting, we had reservations and it was a Tuesday night. Next was the poor service. After sitting down we should have a server introduce themselves to us, we didnt get that and after waiting about 15-20 mins I had to stop a random server to get our drinks ordered, and he said he isn’t our server but will get us the drinks, so finally our server appeared and got us the drinks. After placing our order the server didn’t come check on us after we ordered the food, maybe only once within the 2.5 hrs of sitting there did we get checked on. Overall, rude front host, poor service, nothing amazing with the food, nothing stood out except the corn. Wouldn’t recommend unless you’re an “important customer”.
