I frequent Falvio’s. Never had a bad experience. Food was amazing. Service was stellar.
Great place for birthdays. Super cute and super clean. SO CUTE!!!! However, the food was NOT worth the price and it was very overpriced.
I absolutely love this place! The food is amazing and the service is just as stellar. The ambiance is perfect! Whether you're on a date or getting up with friends for happy hour, this place is FIVE STAR. You will not, cannot, should never be disappointed.
Apps and salad were very good. The pizza was disappointing
You know the place is a joke when everyone workint there comes from a different country. Slightly better than McDonalds. Sad as the location has so much potential. Do yourself a favor and go to Il Canale next door for authentic Italian experience instead.
On a Wednesday night a reservation was not needed. The service was very fast.
Best Italian food I’ve ever had - service was amazing!
Food took over an hour. There was a bug on the table. They forgot a meal and tried to give us something we didn’t order.
We had attentive, wonderful staff for my son’s graduation! Food was superb. Definitely a all around wonderful place.
Wonderful food and great service!
Great food and atmosphere
Wait staff was friedly and accommodating
Hamza offered great service. The food was very good and prices reasonable. I would have liked to see a tad bit more food for the 5 stars but also understand cost control. Great job !
Mother’s Day late celebration
Loved Flavia! It was our first time and I would definitely say it’s some of the best Italian in the city.
We were able to get a reservation on a very busy evening and the night before Mother’s Day and we were seated right away. The food was delicious. The drinks were average to good. The restaurant was so packed that you could barely walk. There clearly were not enough servers, bus people etc. The wait between drinks was very long. The waiter was so busy that we didn’t even bother to ask for anything extra. The ladies room was filthy and had no tissue. There were puddles of water and tissue around the toilet.
Been to Flavio so many times. Always returned. Not after this time. Rude, always in a hurry waiter, always calling me “Lady” seats our party at a table with “clean” water glasses with lipstick on them and bread plates with stuck on pieces of food on them. Those should have been my first clues to get up and leave. Adequate food this time- served in a hurry by a waiter who can’t seem to care. Top it all off? The ending visit to the restroom. They can’t help that they are located in the lower level catacombs. But at least when you arrive they could be clean. You walk in and there is paper products strewn all over. Every part of the bathroom was filthy. What is going on with this place? It has always been one of my favorites. No longer
Things have changed here...be aware.
Visiting here from Australia!! Last night before leaving Washington.. Beautiful dinner, staff were lovely had a little mixup with our order but dealt with it perfectly. Definetly would recommend dining here.
Loved the cheese plate and the pasta really Nice place
Decent food, very good service and nice ambiance at a reasonable price
The service was not great. The food was very good. We made a reservation for specific seating. We called 4 hours before to confirm we were able to get the table we wanted because our future son-in-law was going to propose there. It was a surprise for our daughter. We arrived and asked for the door man to seat us like we reserved. He didn't even check to see what we had asked for. We were placed up front and given a waiter who was not great with English. We asked for things like sweetnlow for our tea...he never brought it. My son-in-law decided to wait to propose because the service was so horrible it ruined the special event. Were not hard to please but this was just such a disappointment!!!!
Each time, I've had decent service and loved the food. It was a slow night and took a while to get a Server to take our order. The Manager did save the day; she was attentive and a pleasure to speak to. I enjoyed the wild mushroom ravioli and the fam keeps ordering the seafood pizza.
Great from start to finish!!!
Excellent service by host and staff
We had a very nice meal at Flavio but the wait was incredibly long and they were not that busy.
Food was fabulous. Service was slow and erratic but the waiter was very nice. Location and value were great!
This place is terrible. I was on vacation in DC with my family and we visited several great restaurants over the week we were in town. It really was the service that ruined the experience for me, but the food was also bad. You really have to mess up for me to tip less than 20%, but these idiots managed to really disappoint. The service was really bad. Cocktail was poorly made. Server tried to rush us through dinner. Food was not served to everyone at the table at the same time. My wife's order was served ten minutes after everyone else's dinner was served and when her dinner arrived, it was not served as ordered. The server could tell I was disappointed and did offer us complimentary desserts, but we declined. On the way out the door, the owner came over to see how our dinner was and I let him know it was terrible, the worst we have had all week. He offered to comp the whole dinner, but I refused. I was not looking for a free dinner, just another enjoyable dinner with my family. This place has a good location in Georgetown and it seems to be a competitive restaurant environment, where service and food quality would make or break a restaurant quickly. I get the sense that these people just don't care. There are many really bad reviews of Flavio. Wish I read them before trying this place.
We reserved the upstairs and ordered family
Style for large group. Highly recommend
The food was pretty good, the portions were just a little small . But everything had good flavors and the restaurant itself is a fun atmosphere .
Food was excellent and staff wonderful. Our waiter Kevin was nothing short of fantastic and took excellent care of us.
Loved it for my date night. My wife and I enjoyed the food and will go again for a lovely meal.
The food was descent. Nothing to write home about but not bad. The service was just okay. I'd go again if someone invited me but probably not of my own choosing.
Terrific meal along with great service.
We loved the outdoor seating and the shrimp Parmesan is the best dish on the menu!
Great atmosphere. Amazing food and service. Definitely a must!
They flat out didn’t honor the reservation.
Loved sitting upstairs it was fun
I was surprised to find a two $ restaurant in Georgetown, but after eating at Flavio I understand why. Imagine and Olive Garden with a fancy interior but without unlimited salad and breadsticks.
We had a lovely time! Our server, Danny, is wonderful. He takes excellent care of us. We wanted to share out two entrees so he had the kitchen prepare our plates with half of each (penne arrabiata and the gnocchi). And he also had them split our salad. It was such a nice thing to do; so much nicer than having to scrape food from one plate to another. When I said I wasn't really up for a full glass of wine (we were going to a concert afterward) Danny suggested a glass of Proseco, which is lighted. It was a perfect recommendation and I enjoyed it thoroughly as I never even thought of that.
And of course, the food is super yummy! We loved all of our selections and always enjoy coming to Flavio.
Thank you for a wonderful meal and evening. Heidi & David
An enjoyable evening with wonderful appetizers and cocktails. Jorge, our waiter was terrific.
My husband and I have previously had good experiences dining at Flavio, so I suggested it as a dinner business venue for a couple of work colleagues from out of town. I read the previous OpenTable reviews about the variable and sometimes problematic service and mediocre food, but ignored it because of my own previous positive experience. Unfortunately, the reviews proved me wrong. The service was atrocious (I had to call the waiter 5 times as he would simply not return to our table) and the food was of worse quality than a meal at Olive Garden. I was hoping not to write this review: what a disappointment.
