Me and my group of six friends came here for my birthday dinner last Monday august 12th. When we came in we were the only people in the entire restaurant other than the staff. Despite the fact that, for the first 20 minutes of us being there, we were the only customers in the whole restaurant our service still was poor. The staff failed to check up on us and for a few of my friends the food was either inedible or too small of a portion for a meal. Overall, our experience was not good and the only part of the dinner that I enjoyed was the cake I got for my birthday, other than that, Flavio was not a good experience. It was a waste of time, money, and I will never go there or recommend it to anyone ever again.

Dinner at Flávio was very pleasant. We wanted straightforward, no nonsense Italian food and that is exactly what we got. The appetisers were good and the pizza and pasta for main was what you would expect from a classic Italian restaurant. The price was very reasonable and service was friendly and attentive. Would visit again.

Nice restaurant. Foods been better in the past. Nice ambiance. Free bread for the table not worth the calories but ate it because it was in front of my face. Service nice and polite but forgot about us after dinner so we had to airplane land him to come bring us the check.

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.

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.

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.
