    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.

    The food was correct but 3 out of the 7 plates we ordered were wrong and were cold. One of the plates came 10min before everyone else’s. The service was super slow. It was not a great experience, would not recommend at all.

    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!

    Our server, Fredrick was not attentive and forgot one of our apps and never offered any bread, which all the other customers had on their table. It took over 40 minutes to receive our entrees. The bolognese was good but nothing special and the papparadelle pasta dish was borderline cold. Ambience is cozy and inviting but it was quite warm with no air circulating. Was very excited to try this place as the reviews were good, but was quite disappointed.

    I was looking forward to ll Fiorista. I Ordered the Osso Buco, the most expensive item on the menu from the waiters recommendation. At first glance, the dinner seemed so big and grand, and I was so excited. After taking 2-3 normal-sized bites, I realized that the entire meal was made of bone and intense fat to the point where I couldn't swallow it. I was very disappointed with my order... and it definitely wasn't worth the $52. The other appetizer wasn't bad, but it did not excite my taste buds. I don't recommend the Osso Buco, but the waiter asked how it was I smiled and told him thank you for the recommendation even tho I wasn't enjoying it and I think he noticed and gave me dessert.
