Delicious menu! We were running behind schedule for our reservation due to out of town friends arriving late. They accommodated the delay and still served superb food! Highly recommend.

Our meal at Flour Shop was a real treat. The hostess delightful, waitstaff knowledgable and efficient and just are right level of engaging, and the food was fantastic! Must come here more often.

The salad and pasta were delicious. The crudo was beautifully presented, but was very small slices of fish. The hostess seated us in the quietest area possible.

Second time eating at Flour Shop. Food was fantastic this time (a bit hit or miss the first time, early on in their operation). However, it took 1 hr 40 min to get our food - not sure if that was kitchen-driven or server-driven as she was new (probably a bit of both). Also ordered “butter service” and had to wait 20 minutes after the bread was delivered for the, you know, butter. I’ll chock it up to a challenging night and try it again given the food and ambiance!

Everything was fine. We ordered two share appetizers split a pasta then waited 40 minutes from the time we finished our pasta until our final course. We were disappointed. The food was really good but that last wait was just too much. We left without ordering dessert.

This is a consistent winner when it comes to a great (open kitchen, loud) atmosphere with great food. It would be outstanding and perhaps I am nitpicking here but the host/front of the room people have a take it our leave it attitude upon arrival and seating. I mean, is it hard to smile and say thank you.
Another nitpicky thing that in my eyes a bit of improvement would make this place outstanding. I no longer drink alcohol and with my ice tea order come to find there is no artificial sweetener available. I can have sugar in the raw if I want. OK, so that's a bit whatever, but then I was charged for my ice tea refill. So, $6 bucks for two 12 oz ice unsweet ice tea's. Good for them with great margins for those of us who don't drink or perhaps are DD's.

This was our second dining experience at Flourshop and as expected, it did not disappoint! We had the butter service, which included an incredible spread of pistachio honey butter, tarragon pink Himalayan sea salt butter, and tomato butter with a fresh assortment of breads, roasted beets, venison meatballs, scallops, and lemon ginger pasta. We could not have had a better date night!

We visited Flour Shop for the first time with high expectations. The food and service did not disappoint. Both were superb. Our main complaint was the room temperature. Between the open kitchen and the full glass front with the sun blazing in, we were all actually sweating just sitting there. We were told a new HVAC unit was going to be installed in the next few weeks so we’ll see if that happens. If so, this will truly be a fantastic place for repeat meals.

Fantastic food and service. A little loud but what a great place. I wouldn’t do a first date Due to the loudness when full here but if you love great food check it out. Excellent for a dinner with friends. Prices seem a little high but the quality and service make it worthwhile. We will definitely be back.

Had a great visit to Flour Shop. Quaint little Italian restaurant tucked away behind the Park Road Shopping Center. The restaurant serves fresh pasta which is always a hit with us. Great wine list. Started with cooked mushrooms served on endive leaves which was quite tasty. The homemade focaccia bread was excellent. I had a lemon fettucine with sausage ragu. My wife had the bucatini pasta with shirmp. Both had excellent portion sizes. We finished the meal by sharing the cannoli which we both remarked was the best we have had since being in Italy. Overall was an excellent meal and an excellent night. Will definitely return.

Everything from the food to the service to the ambience was amazing. Our first visit will definitely not be our last. The grouper crudo was delicious and light, the gnocchi and pork meatballs were flavorful and filling and the scallops with corn and okra was out of this world. And, the bread...what can I say? We loved everything about this place!

Outstanding food and fresh pasta being made as you eat. Nice selection of different dishes - for the pasta lovers and plenty of variety for those not in the mood for pasta. A must have is the burrata appetizer. Excellent wine selection and wonderful cocktail menu. The fresh pasta is amazing - especially the gnocchi.

We were promptly sat at the bar for our 6:30 reservation by a cheerful hostess. I wasn’t watching the clock but it did seem an inordinate amount of time passed before our server approached us, regardless of the relatively empty restaurant. Our sever was probably the least pleasant part of the experience. We were clearly not people she was interested in waiting on, and she barely concealed her distaste. I can guess as to why she didn’t care for our presence, but don’t want to speculate about her character. It should be noted we were both well dressed and polite. We also tipped over 20% in spite of her attitude.

We ordered a bottle of wine and a wide array of dishes to try, which were certainly crafted with care, but didn’t leave an impression. I did enjoy watching the chefs work, and that was the highlight of the evening.

I also believe our server brought us the wrong final dish, but at that point we were too disinterested to care.

Overall, a decent meal, but if I’m going to dine at a “trendy” spot, I’d like to be treated with a modicum of respect by the person I’ll be tipping on a $120 check.

Everything was just, alright. We started with the carpaccio and burrata, both where good but lacked salt. Entrees where scallops and duck, both just simply needed salt and the Brussels on the duck where just fried and put on the plate.. nothing else. Cocktails where good. Still confused with the servers wearing tank tops ..

It had been a while since we came to this restaurant. It was great to be back. The menu is limited but exceptionally prepared and presented. The service was excellent and we even found out that our server baked the bread earlier in the day. For the wine I chose the Cote de Rhone blend and loved it. Our meals were fantastic. We started by sharing the venison meatballs which were nice spiced and the snapper crudo which was fresh, tangy, a little sweet, and awesome. For entrees I had the grouper special, my wife had the bolognese, and our friends had the hanger steak and duck. There was nothing left on any of the plates. We devoured everything because it was so good. I just can't imagine our dining experience being any better and at a reasonable price.

I would’ve given food and service a 5 had it not been for one major screwup. All appetizers and entrees were fabulous except for a horrible rib-eye entree which was as tough as shoe leather and half fat. When server asked how food was I told her how bad the steak was and all she said was “I’m sorry”. I assumed she would either offer a replacement or deduct it from the bill but she did neither. My bad for not asking to see the manager but I didn’t want to create an issue in front of other diners. Dinner experience was ruined and I was fuming about it. Still upset even as I write this.

The food was amazing and worth the trip, but the service left something to be desired. We only received refills once the whole time we were there, which was 1 1/2 hours. Our waiter took 15 minutes to even come to our table when we arrived (there were only 2 other tables). The pace of the meal was WAY too long! Our waiter took our appetizer order then didn’t take our entree order until 10 minutes after we finished our small plates. All the while we sat there with these larger than life menus with no place to put our plates or drinks. We finally put them on another table to make room at which time we were finally asked if we were ready to order. We waited another 25 minutes for entrees which at this point I had ordered another drink, which took forever to come out. Drinks took too long, other diners waited just as we did. A table next to us of 7 waited 20 minutes before even getting drinks. We asked about a dessert menu but were met with “our pastry chef quit so we only have bread pudding and cookies, it’s not great”. Not the response we expected, we passed on dessert. Our waiter disappeared for long stretches and was no where to be found. He was not attentive to any of his other tables either. Again food was wonderful but a huge part of the meal is the service and we left feel underwhelmed.
