    I was very much looking forward to dinner ar Il Fiorista. I found the service to be very good but found The Chef's Table meal uninspired. The first course was a very basic charcuterie board, a tomato salad, and 2 pieces of artisan bread. The second course was a very plain amatriciana that seemed to have small pieces of pork and not guanciale which brings the traditional flavor to the dish. Third course was a just a piece of salmon on a bed of lentils with some type of citrus sauce. Finally, the dessert couse was an individual lava cake and a run-of-the-mill tiramisu. Disappointed.

    We were around 9-10 people celebrating a birthday . They did outstanding menu in the chef table. We had no idea what to expect what was going to be served and we were more than surprised and happy at the taste and freshness of each and every dish served as part of the 4-course. Our dietary restriction of being a vegetarian didn’t come in the way for the chef to customised new dishes and present it on table. Will visit again

    The Arancini appetizer is a can’t miss. The lemon aïoli was so light and beautiful. We had the Branzinio, and the lobster pappardelle, both I would highly recommend. Portion sizes were appropriate and Service was excellent. Also delicious cocktails

    Our meal at Fiorista (to celebrate my birthday) was everything I look for in a restaurant experience. Gorgeous atmosphere, spectacular food/cocktails, lovely service (just the right amount of checking in, plus perfect recommendations)..and best of all, a volume that allowed us to hear one another talk without having to raise our voices. Went with another couple - we usually rotate, with the birthday person choosing where to do the next one -- and so far two of the 4 have decided they are stealing my idea and returning to Fiorista.

The quality of each dish was superb, the restaurant itself is lovely, and the staff were so professional, knowledgeable, and truly care about their customers. I highly recommend this restaurant for a beautiful dining experience.

    I went with a group of 3 to do their seasonal tasting menu and wine pairing. Incredible experience! Each course was flavorful and beautifully presented and the timing between courses was at a good cadence. The paired wines were fantastic and diverse recommendation. Our server was very attentive and accommodating to the dietary restrictions.

    The food was mostly delicious but the portions for the entrees were small, and the artichoke hearts were almost all inedible leaf. Service was fantastic however and the ambiance was nice. Definitely a little pricey for not a large return.

    It seems like they've lost their way and their raison d'etre. Our first experience was in 2021 and was incredible. Basically everything about that has disappeared. The quiet ambience bordered on sleepy, and basically everything about the food was "good, but missing something." The cocktail list is the same as years ago, but without nearly as much floral flavor as they advertise. Similarly nearly absent are the floral accents to the menu save the occasional dash of lavender on every third or fourth dish. The fried artichokes were warm at best, and while the pasta dishes were objectively delicious, the portions were remarkably small (literally 12 individual rigatoni in the bolognese bianco!?), and again devoid of anything floral.

    The website menu was different from the actual menu. One of our party had some food restrictions and relied on the online menu (the soup was made with butter). The actual menu listed arancini but did not list the ingredient of cheese. One of us wanted black tea but the restaurant had run out. The arugula salad had many leaves which were yellow, that is, they were spoiled. Clearly the leaves came out of a plastic bag and no one had inspected and removed the leaves. We had to do that.

    We chose this as a special night in NYC and did the chef’s tasting. We love tasting menus and have had some great ones in NYC across the price range. The food was good but not excellent. The appetizer was unbalanced and heavy on meat. The salmon was huge and well cooked but the accompanying foods were overcooked and did not complement the dish. The pasta was delicious and more what I expected. The arancini was also a standout. The staff were outstanding — helpful and attentive. I was expecting a wider range of flowers incorporated. So that was disappointing. Just two minuscule flowers on top of the salmon. The tiramisu was very heavy and not a great ending. Overall the meal lacked balance. I would recommend skipping the Chef’s Tasting and ordering from the menu so you can choose more to your taste.

    Booking with Il Fiorista was one of the most pleasant experiences I've had in NYC restaurant culture. The restaurant has a kind, authentic, and warm environment from how they answer the phone, to how generous they are with their space, to their service while dining. Our waitress, Vivian (Vivianna) went above and beyond and was patient as I had a large party and needed to add a few more. I was scouring NYC looking for a place to host a party of 12 and they allow you to book a party of 12 without an extra charge. On the day of my reservation we had some unexpected attendee’s and needed a few extra seats. we worked with them to find a solution and my brunch went off without any snags. Not to mention they have a coat check which can be few and far between. The food was delicious, the ambiance is relaxing and the perfect way to bring in the year. I had the steak and eggs and it was delightful. The vegetables were chefs kiss. Prepared and seasoned perfectly. The cappuccino was nice as well. Everyone loved their meals and had a variety of items form the menu. Thank you to Il Fiorista and your amazing team for helping me pull off an amazing brunch for my friends and I. I will most definitely be back and i’m telling my friends and colleagues about you.

    Really disapponted with this restaurant which we were hoping would be special on our final night in New York. We visited with 3 teenage boys and the menu was very limited. Despite having a ‘bar menu’ with suitable food for the kids, they would not serve it (the bar menu on open table was advertised until 6pm and we booked for 5.45pm). This inflexibility was Very unlike New York and not accommodating at all. The bottom line is that if you want a restaurant with a vibrant atmosphere, a good menu and helpful staff - you should maybe look for an alternative. New York has so much to offer and having visited twice this is by far the worst experience we have had. The owner did in all fairness come over to talk to us at the end of the night and was very pleasant and apologetic. It doesn’t replace what was a poor experience though - and very expensive for what it was as well. Maybe we just caught it on an off night - I hope so.

    Edwardo and his team of servers were on target, kind, and supportive. Excellent flavors and the Pre-Fix Chef's taste me menu was exquisite. The pacing of the meal was excellent. Do wish there was one more veggie side with the Baccala, but this is a very minor point! merry Christmas!
