When we arrived at the restaurant they put us at a table inside the empty restaurant , I asked to be moved outside, which they did accommodate. The food was exceptional. The service was ok, we had to wait for drinks and the menu was removed before asking all parties what they wanted to drink.

Hostess’ were very rude to us. Told us we don’t have a reservation even though we did. Had to show confirmation of our open table reservation. Even then, after they sat us, they tried to move us TWICE by telling us the table we had was “contractually reserved for some very important people”. We refused to get up and asked to have the manager come over and he never did.
Even though our allergies were asked in the beginning of the night, and when we put in the order, we reiterated we cannot have pork, there was still bacon in our food. And it took about 40 minutes for our food to arrive. Terrible experience overall.

The server was nice but his service was badddd. We didn't get our bottomless mimosas in a timely manner, so we ended up with only 2 during our entire meal. I had to ask a passing busser to get them for us - it was so late. Condiments came at the tale end of the meal. For what we paid, it was ridiculous. The food itself was really good.

Food was a mixed bag - the lasagna was flavorless and it wasn’t because of the Impossible meat. Too many ingredients and too little flavor. The beef Wellington was good but the sides where bland. Worst was the sommelier who was given the assignment of opening our expensive wine but didn’t mutter a word

Too bad because the place is nice, especially the outdoor area

Our waitress, Laura, was excellent. However making my reservation over the phone was met with a very icy person. We ended up reserving our table on line, informed them that it was my girlfriend's bday - no acknowledgement. We were placed adjacent to the kitchen, quite loud and busy but the worst part was the smell. The aroma of the kitchen's rubber mats, (if you've ever worked in a restaurant you know what i mean) lingered heavily the entire evening. My girlfriend had the scallops which were quite good. I had the pasta alla nerano, it was ok, nothing to rave about, heavy on the olive oil and we shared the appetizer of squash blossoms stuffed with shrimp. Those were a huge disappointment - breaded and either deep fried or pan fried which was not in their description, I think. If I'd ordered that on santa monica per, I'd expect it served up that way. You really couldn't tell it was a squash blossom. The place is attractive, but again, the smell, where we were sitting - horrendous. It was a big birthday disappointment.

There's a certain pomposity about these high end foodie emporiums. When I entered the restaurant, a well-dressed couple ahead of me was being informed by the hostess that they could not bring two small balloons into the restaurant to celebrate a friend's birthday. They would have to leave the balloons (festooned with Happy Birthday salutations) in their car. They left and then returned sans the balloons. I expressed my surprise to the hostess and she informed me it is the restaurant's policy (so as to avoid disturbing other guests at the closely placed tables). I advised her that the restaurant's policy is offensive. This side distraction ruined the entire dining experience for me. The food, however, is very good, although not extraordinary. The appetizers are laughably tiny and served with a precious presentation.

The staff bent over backwards to honor my requests. Wish the menu offered one or two real vegan options as several friends with whom I'd like to enjoy Fia are vegan.

Outstanding newish comer on the Santa Monica scene. Finest ambience, food, presentation, and service. wine list limited and expensive, but some fine choices. A bit expensive overall, but worth it! Our special occasion birthday was honored and celebrated by staff.

Our party of 10 had a fantastic brunch this weekend. The baked goods were fabulous .. the chicken, shrimp, steak, eggs.. everything we had was superb. Lovely service and super private room. The manager, Rick, was extraordinarily helpful.. so nice! All the staff were pleasant. I rarely write reviews .. these folks deserve it and the food warrants top rating. Can’t wait to go back.

music was too loud, tho. they did move us to a private room, which was very much appreciated.
the server constantly asked if our food was "fantastic" or "wonderful" or "terrific."
I hate such leading questions and as I was hosting the meal, and didn't want to cast a pall on the evening, I simply said it was fine. In reality, had I been on my own or with my family, I would have said that the pasta with truffles didn't taste like truffles, the sommelier didn't know his wines, and that it was difficult to get the server or som. to stay in the room long enough to take our order.
I would not recommend this restaurant.

Fia is a gem in Santa Monica. Our party of 4 chose to sit at a table in the outside patio and it was delightful. All of our cocktails were delicious, as well as all of our food with the exception of the broccoli rabe side. That was a bit underwhelming, especially as compared to the cauliflower side which was tremendous. Fia is not inexpensive but we knew that going in; it ended up costing about $150 per person. Make sure to book well in advance. Street parking on a Friday evening was easy. Great for people watching and for special occasions. Definitely will keep this on our list!

Food was great, but extremely overpriced. Service was poor… it took forever to receive our food and drinks, we had to ask twice for a water refill until we had to give the water bottle to a random waiter to fill up, we requested a patio table weeks in advance and sat inside, and overall people just weren’t very nice. overall, the experience was just okay

I made a reservation for my mom’s birthday and requested outdoor. Upon arriving, they wanted to seat us inside and told us they couldn’t accommodate outdoor. We were willing to wait for the next outdoor table, but they said it would be a 40 min wait and could wait at the bar. The bar was packed and they had us stand in the alleyway and were very inhospitable. I noticed that a table was leaving and asked if we could have the table and with hesitation, we got the table. Upon sitting, our server was nice and communicative, but our food was slow to come out. Food was tasty but extremely overpriced. Overall, not a great experience and wish we went somewhere better for the celebration.
