Our first time at Flora and we were very impressed. The food was excellent! I had the steak and frites. My husband had the osso bucco. The staff was also very attentive. They really worked as a team to provde great service. Also, it is a beautiful restaurant. Make you feel like you are out of town. Would HIGHLY recommend!

We decided to try Flora Bar & Grille because we like their other restaurant WestEnd. We went for a Valentines brunch and after receiving an email. The food was excellent and they had a Spanish guitarist playing soft instrumental music.
A couple of hiccups with the service but overall very good.

We are so excited about this amazing new restaurant! The moment we arrived, we were greeted warmly by the owner. Sat at a lovely outside table with plenty of heat, and space from other guests. The food was delicious! We split the artichokes appetizer (a MUST try and beautifully plated) with crispy garlic. My husband had the osso buco and I had the black ink linguine with shrimp. Both were amazing. Cocktails were also really, really good. We were really well taken care of by our servers, but never felt like their presence was too much. The perfect balance. Highly recommend this new gem!

We really love this restaurant. Every time we go there we have a great meal and very friendly service. They take the attitude of making any changes you need or want. Some restaurants won't make changes to dishes, but they are always willing to do whatever you need for your kids meals. Our kids love it also, which is a higher bar than ours.

Went there twice. The entertainment was excellent. Outdoor seating because of Covid. Ordered flatbread the first time. It was mediocre at best. The second time ordered flat iron steak. It had no flavor . It was exchanged for salmon which was good, not great based on the price .

We went there for the first time last week and had a great experience. The wait staff were very accommodating, saying they could do anything we needed. Being outside, it was a little chilly, so dress warmly. Our food was great, everyone was happy. We will definitely be back,

Flora is a wonderful new restaurant which is not only beautiful inside but outside as well. We sat on the outside patio which was covered for the rain and listened to the music from the nearby courtyard. Service was wonderful and the food delicious! We had the salmon, a margherita pizza and several appetizers and all were outstanding! Our server as well as the host and hostess were absolutely lovely and very attentive. We cannot wait to go back and try everything on their menu!

Nice and peaceful experience with good food and good service. The ambiance is very adult structured. Not like Chuck e Cheese or a pizza joint.

The food was very good. The gnocchi was a little peculiar as it was one large patty. It was supposed to be herbed, but let’s just say the herb flavor was VERY subtle. Management should pay for a premium, ad-free music service since hearing an ad for McDonald’s while enjoying fine dining cheapens the experience.

This is an email I sent this place. It was the worst service ever...
I just left your Carmel Valley location & went across the parking lot, to Pacific Social.
We arrived at 7:30pm for our reservation. We left at 8:17pm.
We sat at our table with no waiter ever coming to take our order. A nice young lady brought us bread & water at some point. She ask us several times if anyone had checked on us. We said no each time. She said sorry each time. She said she had ask several times for someone to come over. She ask if she could get us drinks. We ordered ice tea & a drink from the bar. She brought us the ice tea, but the bar drink never came (20min). We finally got up & left at 8:17pm. We left $5 cash.
The person who seemed to be in charge was a tan, shorter, slightly older man. He seemed to not have a clue on how to run things, seemed to be in a panic. We noticed others around us had no food & had been there/sat down before us.
This was the worst dining experience we have ever had. This is an affluent area to where people are used to good service & will not support a place like this. This location has had 3 different restaurants in it, since we have lived in the area. Your off to a bad start. I hope you make it because of the workers trying to earn a living during hard times, but we will never come back & will post negative reviews online. I see you are not on Yelp yet, but I’ll watch for it.
