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 had a 9 PM reservation and were seated 20 minutes afterwards, even though there were numerous free tables. And the food wasn't that great. The pizza and Cacio y Pepe were good; the other pasta and the chicken parm not so much.

High points - Calamari, corn ravioli with lobster broth and guava sorbet
Low points- service was quick but abrupt with no explanation of menu items. Italian offerings - spaghetti and meatballs and chicken Parm were underwhelming. Chicken was extremely DRY. My son was disappointed-

Saw all the reviews regarding poor service and I was concerned however, it seems as though the restaurant management saw the same reviews and made major corrections. The service was amazing...servers were on top of everything and several times during the night we were even checked in by management to make certain our night exceeded expectations. The food was top notch! Of course everything is going to be on the pricey side...remember where you’re at! I would highly recommend ignoring the poor service reviews and make your own conclusions.

I ate here with my family. The food was mediocre- at best. Our appetizers came out at the same time as our main meals. There was absolutely no timing whatsoever. Some of our food was cold and had to be sent back. Our server was not particularly attentive and we thought it was extremely overpriced.

I’d like to give this restaurant one more try before I recommend to others. I specifically requested a nice table for two in my OpenTable reservation, indicating that we were celebrating something special. However, we were led to a small table in a very tight spot right next to a crying child. I had to wait to be relocated to a different table. I had to walk outside to even know that I had the option to dine outdoors. Very disappointing start to my dinner experience.

Next, the food: The appetizers were great (conch arancini and stuffed mushrooms). I also enjoyed my Sangiovese and Osso Buco. However, my husband’s Chicken Parm was dry and pasta overcooked. Pasta had to be ordered separately. I suggest they serve only one chicken breast but include the pasta for that entree. The ice cream sandwich dessert was so frozen that we had to wait for it to thaw in front of us before we could enjoy it. It wasn’t impressive at all. Service was great, thank goodness.

Unfortunately, this was our least favorite meal at Baha Mar, and of course, it was my birthday dinner. Service was slow, and it felt like we were forgotten about. The food wasn't bad - it just could have been a lot better. My recommendation would be to try one of the other restaurants - we loved Commonwealth!

We stayed at Baha Mar for a few days. We ate outside on the AWESOME patio at Fi’lia. We ordered 5 apps and shared, they were all excellent. Service was excellent. We would come back for sure! 5 apps, 2 desserts, 1 drink, it was around $150 I think great price as well.

Service was great but the food so not worth the money. Order a chicken dish and it was pretty dry. Also have to pay for a side of pasta because didn’t come with pasta and side of pasta was over cooked.

While the chicken Parmesan and Cesar salad were good, the side of pasta with the chicken was an extra $10, and the “bolonese” sauce also an extra $10, and was a pretty terrible; not worth the $20 for a little pasta and terrible sauce on it. Chicken parm is large enough to split for two

Our reservation was at 9 pm, as that was the earliest time available. We still had to wait and then sat at table without a single server coming to wait on us. After 15 minutes we left and went to our room and called room service.

By far the worst dining experience at all of Baha Mar. Our waitress was inexperienced and rushed our entire dinner. Food was mediocre at best. There are so many better dining choices at this amazing resort but this is not one of them.

The octopus was great. So were the branzino and the hanger steak. The tuna carpaccio had some wierd fried shallots ob top that totally didn’t fit in with the rest, totally ruined the starter. Service was very average. All in all if you chose the right dishes you might have a great experience!

Visiting from NY- read lots of mixed reviews but at Baha Mar you are stuck at the resort and there seems to be a mismatch with supply and demand for food so MAKE RESERVATIONS FOR EVERY MEAL. The decor and ambiance were relaxing and tasteful. We were promptly seated for our reservation, our server was friendly, and prices were in line with what I expected for the resort (similar to Vegas prices). Our meal arrived out of the order we requested (things I wanted as mains were brought first) - the pepperoni pizza and hangar steak with brocolini were both very good, the chopped salad was just OK but I was dying for greens. The tuna carpaccio arrived covered in weird gross toppings like fried onions, olives, and some horrible green sauce. The fish had a mushy texture. We took one bite and sent it back, they took it off the bill no problem. I find all the restaurants here either serve food too quickly, which was the case here, or too slowly where you are starving and wondering... but I’d rather be able to eat and carry on with my evening! Would recommend pizza and grilled meats and wines by the glass 6.5/10

The food was good, but way too overpriced. Drink prices are out of control. Service was pretty good, and the staff was very polite and as efficient as they could possibly be. Everyone was very friendly and accommodating. The aesthetics were very nice, but the restaurant itself was incredibly noisy. The noise level actually made dining unpleasant. When you are spending that kind of money on a meal you would expect to have a comfortable setting that includes an acceptable noise level. I do not think I'd recommend this restaurant. Although the food was good, it wasn't great. The noise was too loud and the prices were too high for the type of food offered.

My husband and I were seated at our table which was wedged in between two other tables for two. Waaayyy to close! It was very awkward as we couldn’t help but hear the conversations beside us; how could we not? Then, when we each ordered a glass of cabernet savingnon, we were told that they ran out of it. When there are only four red wine options available by the glass, you would think that they would not run out or would replace the original cabernet with another one. Two dissapointing things especially since the prices were above average for what we got.
