This was our first visit to La Fontana in Doral. The food was amazing however we're extremely disappointed with the service. The waiter spilled wine on one of the guests, we had to ask multiple employees, multiple times for water and utensils and while we were a party of 8 adults there was no excuse to have to wait over an hour for our dinner. There was no explanation and when the check came it was apparent why the service was so terrible. 18% tip was automatic. Would definitely Not recommend unless you do take out. This was a celebration. For engagement and it really was a disappointment There was a toddler AND a baby that had to endure a 4 hour plus meal. The 18% should go to charity. UPDATE; we sent the info at their request to the restaurant along with all of the issues that need to be addressed. I requested a call back from them In addition we reviewed our receipt and found we were charged for an extra meal as well as upcharges and incorrect drink charges (charging for more expensive wine)incorrectly as well. Will update this review following my discussion with management
UPDATE: of course they never called back. Left all my info on their IH message as requested and NOTHING!!!!

first time at La Fontana and went for Mother's Day. They have an extensive menu and food was very good. Had the octopus and artisan bread as an appetizer, seafood, and Bolognese pasta, which were very good with decent portions. They also had some guitarists, which was nice. Also, we had dessert which were very good as well. Overall, the ambience and food were very good

Over priced and horrible food. I used to go to this restaurant and I loved it beacuse the food was delicious. It even reminded me to the food in Caracas. I went to this restaurant this saturday mother’s day weekend to celebrate my mom. The cesar salad was awful, the pasta was almost cold. The glasses smelled horrible! We couldnt even drink the water.
I paid $157 for three plates of pasta, a cesar salad, a kids cheese pizza a juice and two sodas.
I wouldnt mind if the food were delicious but again it was very bad.

I am never going back to this place again.

UPDATE: After my review below on OT and Yelp, management contacted me privately asking that I call them and offering to reimburse the meal; I immediately did & was told the manager would call me back. It’s over a month later and I’m still waiting. This place is awful.

From the moment we were seated and waited almost 10 minutes before being acknowledged with water, we then had excessively long waits for wine and courses. The server argued when we tried to cancel entrees after waiting 30 minutes after appetizers were cleared.

The food was really bad and uneatable! The lobster hard overcooked and chewy . The ribeye steak ordered medium well was burn and hard to chew bad quality meat. The fried calamari full of grease and tasted like rubber. Our pasta was hard the whole experience was bad. Our check was 500 and the only thing we were able to eat was a cheese pizza and our drinks. Avoid this restaurant it was our first and last. The manager reached out to me after reading my review in yelp she gave me a fake number to contact her I called the restaurant directly to speak to her and they claim she is on vacation. I like fine dining and we eat out every weekend but here you will be throwing your money away

The waitress spilled hot coffee all over one of our companions. The coffee cups are poorly designed and tip over very easily. She was very apologetic, but they didn’t even take the coffee off the bill! Very poor!

Food - Phenomenal. The steak with cheese poured over was amazing. If only it was hot when it got to us. We spent close to $300 for 3 of us and the service was the worst. First off the waitress - a youngish Venezuelan brunette. Don’t remember her name. She didn’t offer any of the specials and we had to ask. Then our appetizer arrived before the bread. The waitress “reheated” the cheese to go over our steak but really made a hard toasted cheese and had to bring another one - by then the steak was cold. We then asked for our check and waited over 20 mins when we finally all got up and asked to pay and she just proceeded to say “oh sorry.” Will definitely not be returning.

Hi Madilla! The size will always depend on the type of drink that you, what we can guarantee always is that they're mixed by a professional bartender and have renowned brand liquors. Also, you can come in our Happy Hour (from 4 to 7 PM all week) and have cocktails half price.

Our food was very good and pricey; I have had better Italian food closer to home. The service was a tad slow because our server, who was very good, was busy attending to several large parties. We made the best of our evening as it was a birthday celebration.

The timing was odd with COVID 19 happening but that is no excuse for the food not to be hot, or the arugula to be salty, or the bread to take forever. I’ve been to La Fontana before and it was great. Such a difference. Unfortunately not positive at all.

An outstanding dining experience in a traditional Italian ambience that was comfortable and relaxed. The appetizer, wine, main courses and desserts were delicious . The lighting was perfect . It was our first and definitely not last experience in La Fontana. The servers and staff made us feel welcome and were helpful with the recommendations from the menu .
Not only was the food outstanding but the unhurried pace of the atmosphere that is so important for a wonderful dining experience . We are highly recommending this restaurant to everyone. Thank you !!

Complimentary bread was a tiny portion of bread. If you want the larger bread you have to pay for it
Overpriced drinks ( non alcoholic) lemonades should not cost $6 and $7
Served a vegan labeled dish from menu with cheese sauce!

Although an overall good experience, I was disappointed because I was told that my dish would be tossed in a cheese wheel, but when they brought the dish already on a plate, I was informed that it was difficult to bring the wheel table side. And although service was good, there seemed to be a lack of interest on the part of the restaurant to make the experience more enjoyable.

I love this restaurant the first time was amazing that why i went again i repeat the plate i ate the first time ( the pasta you made in the cheese)but this time was super different the tasting and was cold. The weather was good so we decided seat outside the server( a girl) never said the name she was a kind cold never went to ask about food she didn’t offer cheese for our pasta she take a long time to bring the bill she was worried about the table in the back where was seat a group of people they works there in the restaurant I think was a days off that day plus another girl dressed with your uniform so I guess she don’t has any time at that moment and she was chilling i understood the people seat outside can be a little noise but they working there or they knows the servers there and all the table was dirty my experience was horrible....

A great option in Doral from someone been going for years. The lunch salads appear to be much smaller and the menu is much bigger - which is the opposite of what I want - but in 2020 I'm still happy.

We were highly recommended this restaurant, we ordered pasta, the hard and salty ravioli, we had to return them, the pasta with salmon, the same raw and salty noodles,
the appertizer, the bread was cold and dry
I was very sorry to have taken my friends to dinner.
I found the price high, paying 200 usd for a dinner that was to my liking
I will not return to this restaurant
