    First time here for girl’s night and we enjoyed it! We made it in time for happy hour, which is advertised on yelp 3-6, but actually ended at 6:30 to our happy surprise. From the happy hour menu we ordered the tacos, ceviche, and truffle fries -all delicious!! And from the main menu we tried the bolognese pasta also very yummy. Greg, the bartender was fun, friendly and accommodating to one gal’s particular taste in drinks. Finally, for dessert we had the crème brûlée and bread pudding, also very good. Overall, a nice atmosphere in a convenient location, we will definitely be back!

    We had a fabulous ladies brunch Sunday aug 14. Service was impeccable and the waitress even accommodated my special food needs wonderfully. The place was warm, however, given they had to keep the outdoor door open but as we were wrapping up the air conditioning kicked in a bit more. Could've just been the time we were there. We have been before and def will come back!

    I sincerely wanted to give this restaurant a good review. I really appreciate the neighborhood feel of the location. Unfortunately, the meal (fish) was way over cooked. I hope this was just a bad night.

    Wait staff were a lot of fun and knowledgeable! They were able to craft substitute items to mitigate a specific food allergy. We had drinks and hors d'oeuvre, both were tasty and good value. Main courses were all very good. Casual pleasant vibes all around.

    People - get with the program! We had breakfast here at 10:30 on Sunday. There were only two tables occupied in the restaurant. ??? The food and service were great and the fact that you could actually make reservations topped off the experience. Don’t pass this one up - great food - excellent service - should be packed!

    We have been there twice. The food was good both times. Service was inconsistent- even spotty last night when the restaurant was busier than the previous week. Speciality cocktails were good, especially the Tiramisu dessert cocktail.

    A group of 8 of us went to Flora because we heard that a guitarist was playing. Her stage name is Shaynie Rhoads and she was terrific. Drinks at the bar before dinner served by bartender, Greg Garcia. Great customer service and delicious drinks served with enthusiasm and a great smile! Perfect dinner spot and the food was amazing served by David R. I had the Vegan Vegetable Ravioli (so yummy) & my husband had the Linguine that he raved about. A couple of delicious deserts shared at the table rounded our evening out very nicely. We will absolutely return to this restaurant. A perfect evening with great drinks, food, entertainment and service!

    They were able to seat us fairly promptly for lunch as we had a reservation. There was good spacing between the outdoors tables, it was covered and a nice temperature. I was not a fan of them allowing dogs on the patio, people do not need to bring their pets to lunch, the table next to us had a beagle that kept running under our table from his long leash and inattentive owners. Server brought us water and my glass had a gross dried food smear all around the top of it, I don’t know how they missed that. Server apologized and brought me a new glass and this one had little red flecks floating in the water. The table was sticky, and it took us 40 minutes to get our food (and it was not at capacity). The highlight was that the food was delicious, we ate every bite of it - BLT, chicken sandwich and pancakes for the kids. Pricing was reasonable, overall it was “ok” but cleanliness and service could be improved.

    Food is poorly prepared, presentation awful and unappetizing. If you go, order a salad. It’s hard to ruin. Order veal saltimbocca which was drowned in a thick dark gravy smothering veal. Spaghetti marinara was plated on same plate. Cheese was barely melted. Ordered pizza first and cheese lump like rather than melted to creamy texture. This restaurant is Bad.

    This was a GNO for four professional women. The restaurant is clean with nice decor. The service was ok…nothing special. The food was just mediocre. We ordered linguine with clams, spare ribs and ravioli. We enjoy trying new local restaurants with the hope of finding our “Go To” favorite spot. Flora will not be that place for us.

We were seated promptly at our reservation time and the server was excellent! In addition to great service the food was INCREDIBLE! From drinks to apps to dessert everything was amazing!

    Besides a brunch (months ago), this was our first meal at Flora. From start to finish, this was a very nice experience. The host and service members were so accommodating, professional and courteous. Wine suggestions were spot on and at a reasonable price point. Our appetizer plates were traditional and hit the spot perfectly befor the main course. We had the Swordfish with lemon and caper sauce special and pasta Norma to make a relative comparison to other Mediterranean/Italian places we enjoy. Both main courses exceeded expectations, especially the swordfish. I’m a fisherman and love having a fish done slightly under keeping it moist and flavorful. The chef did an outstanding job at that and at keeping the sauce subtle and the sides exceptional. The pasta Norma is traditional standard (in my book) and they did a great job at balancing the sauce to the rest of the ingredients. Every taste brings something a little different to the palate. Even the musician that night was awesome! Traditional Mediterranean style music mixed with Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra and other crooners. Volume was perfect from where we sat. Bravo!

    Attentive waiter, delicious food. I was able to switch out the sauce on my pasta so it didn't have mushrooms, as I am allergic! The portions are not really big, but the food is fresh and made to order. I had the short rib ravioli and my husband had the Scottish salmon, and both dishes were excellent. Try the Jalapeño Margarita, yum! And save room for the Tiramisu, it's fantastic!

    The service and the food were both great. Our server Marcos was very attentive and took good care of us. Another server Elias is great too. At 10 pm they brought in a performer and a DJ and really got the place rocking. Great late night hang out place for a Friday night. Food is great and reasonably priced. You won’t be disappointed.

    Good is good but if you order appetizers with your main course they will take 40 mins to come TOGETHER and u won’t be able to enjoy either. They ended up taking back our pasta and bringing it later reheated and all let’s say “ fat from al dente as possible “ to not say porridge .

    Wow! We could not have had a better experience! We went for my son’s 18th birthday and it started off with a wonderful welcome for the person seating us who made sure the table was perfect for what we needed. The waiter (Alessandro) was warm, inviting, friendly and a great sense of humor. The bartender and busser who stopped to talk to us were top notch as well. The food and cocktails were absolutely delicious and we will definitely be back soon. Seriously, we left there feeling so great and it definitely was due to the staff and ambience. Thank you, Flora!
