Fia has a fantastic outdoor patio that makes dining here worth it along. Prices are on the high side for what you receive however the food is good. It would be a 5 star place if the prices were a little less crazy. But because it's slightly overpriced it's 4 stars.

I’ve been wanting to go Fia for months but it’s always been booked up! It was so lovely and relaxing! The young man who was our waiter was so very sweet and attentive! We loved the Croque Madame!!! It was incredible as were the fresh pasties and added bonus of bottomless mimosas! Such a wonderful time after a crazy year! Thank you Fia for the gorgeous space, joyful staff and gourmet yummy food! Can’t wait to return! Next time we’ll try dinner!!

Food and drinks were very good, and the service was excellent at the table. The hostess was rude, and they don’t honor your specific location choice (inside or outside), which, given that COVID is still with us, seems incredibly insensitive and short sided, and then to be rude about it is just absurd. The food was good, but I won’t go back. There’s no shortage of good food in LA, I don’t need to dine somewhere that takes its patrons for granted and isn’t honest about the dining arrangement up front.

Came here to celebrate gf bday. Second time dining here. Equally as memorable as the first. Everything here is very well executed and the ambiance and setting are truly unique. The portions are refreshingly satisfying and there is a good balance of california fair with a touch of modern Italian cuisine. Even had an awesome celebrity encounter to cap off the night.

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.
