JAMES BEARD AWARD WINNING CHEF MICHAEL SCHWARTZ BRINGS HONEST ITALIAN FOOD FEATURING FRESH INGREDIENTS FROM THE HEARTH AND THE SIMPLICITY OF HANDMADE ARTISANAL BREADS AND PASTA TO FI’LIA.
A meal begins with a crusty loaf, presented with olive oil and oregano snipped at the table. Rustic pizzas from the wood oven highlight beautiful produce in season in special combinations. Caesar salad is tossed tableside in a shower of shaved parmigiano from a roaming cart, with the smell of toasted garlic croutons reminding you of how satisfying and memorable the classics can be.

Cocktails are refreshingly uncomplicated – less about complex recipes and technique, and more about how unpretentiously perfect a spritz is on a July or December afternoon. A focused wine list celebrating Italian regional varietals and American wines with an old world sensibility.

We came to eat here on our vacation, while staying at the Baha Mar. Food, drinks and service was great! My only complaint was that while we were a group of two, we were expecting a much nicer table especially since we had a reservation. We were given a small 2 person table they was extremely tight in-between two other tables and couples. I think the space could be a little better utilized to give all guests including couples a better experience without feeling like another couple is listening to our entire conversation.

Just OK. Overall, everything at the hotel restaurants is completely over priced. My husband and I weren't sure if this was because we were on and island or at a hotel, either way- over priced. The chopped salad we ordered seemed like day old lettuce, and the pizza was soggy. Maybe we are spoiled coming from Chicago, but would expect better food and service for the price.

It took an hour and 15 minutes to get our salad and another 45 to get our food. Our severer did not check on us during that time and we had to get the manager for refills on water and cocktails.

Outdoor seating was very nice--after we moved to a second table. A few of the outdoor dining tables are too close to the door and too busy to dine at. The pasta was great and the seafood was okay. We had the octopus which was decent, a little chewy. The fish was doused in olive oil which actually made it pretty heavy. The service was great though we felt a bit rushed at times. A decent option if you're staying at the Baha Mar for a few days. If you're only there for a short period of time, I'd recommend 3 Tides over Fi'lia.

Food is good not special and the caesar salad is not good at all. Suppose to be a signature dish and made at the table but they said the cart had a broken wheel and so they bring it from the kitchen. It is overpriced and definitely not made for each order. We ordered it for four and it was $56. It came on the same plate as those getting it for two and was not special at all. The croutons were just torn up loaves of garlic bread and we even had part of a plastic bag in our salad. Of course they were appalled and comped the salad but I have a feeling the lettuce comes out of a big bag, they tear up garlic bread, put on pre made dressing and deliver. I don't think they have any intention of making this table side. The other food was good but not special as a signature restaurant should be. Pizza was good and side of pasta for chicken parm was good. Had the olive oil cake for dessert and it was really good. I think it is one of the better restaurants on site at the Hyatt and we would go back as the ambience is great and the service was also great. It is expensive for what you get but that is to be expected in this type of environment. Recommendation.. raise the bar for the caesar or cut the price in half.

Every thing was great but the steak for 2 came out wrong sent it back. Came out wrong again under cooked raw
Sent back again
By this time our friends were done eating
Would you believe they still billed us for the steak? The manager offered us dessert. Not what a good steak restaurant does !

Beautiful space and nice wine list, however, the food was really not up to par. We had 2 pizzas and a pasta and they lacked any real flavor or imagination. Its a gorgeous space, so you want the food to match the aesthetic, but it didn't really live up. Its also very expensive for what it is- pasta is pretty simple, so it needs to be done right.

Good food and I will NEVER go back. We arrived on time and asked to wait, while others showed up and were seated before us. We sat for 35 minutes before we were acknowledged or got water and bread. Our order was taken after an hour had passed. No apologies on our wait. If lunch is going to cost over $60 per person the service should be much much better.

Worst customer service. Ordered food for our toddler- it came out last (and was so over cooked it was inedible), the kitchen forgot to place our to-go order then tried to make us wait another 25 at the end of an already very long and slow lunch. The manager was too busy on his phone to help and didn’t even offer to take the meal off the bill. We left the restaurant and they ran after us with the To-go food. Absolutely terrible meal, we had heard such good things and could not have been more turned off by the whole experience.

The ladies at the hostess were very poised under very demanding conditions. Every guess seemed to think they were VIP and should be seated immediately, even when they no reservation — on Christmas Day. The wait staff were very efficient and made very good recommendations. We will definitely return. Great food. Great service. Great staff and management. Plus, Christmas in the Bahamas!

Our server was rude which seems to be the general theme at the high end restaurants at this resort. However, you will receive wonderful service during lunchtime at any outdoor beach/pool restaurants. What a disconnect at a basic training level in the food industry.
Lights are too bright and your seated on top of each other for larger parties.
