    I booked for my team and was planning on staying for the happy hour specials. We sat down and then we’re asked if we were planning on ordering any entrees, we said potentially but mostly apps and drinks. Later, our server told us that what we were ordering would not be considered for HH pricing since we weren’t in the area by the TVs… very strange and honestly annoying after ordering food. I felt as though that should have been explained better. I wouldn’t have booked this location if this had been explicitly explained somewhere! I come here for lunch often but this service put a bad taste in my mouth.

    The food was incredibly disappointing for the price. But the service was excellent and the vibes inside were great. This is a decent spot if you’re at the hotel but not one I would go out of my way to experience

    Food was ok. The crab cakes were awful so they did comp them off the bill. They tasted like canned fish and it really ruined the meal. The chicken parm was great. The pasta was really good and kids likes the burger.

    I came here for happy hour with a friend around 430pm on a Thursday evening. I mistakenly thought the bar on the first floor was the place until I was redirected by the kind bar staff up the escalator. The restaurant was practically empty with a few patrons sitting at the bar. The bar is quite large and is fully enclosed with bottles in the middle that doesn't allow you to see through to the other side. If the bartender is on the other side, there is no way to make eye contact. Once I got his attention, I ordered a quartino of the happy hour cab. It is quite the deal, though it tasted like table wine and one can drink it quickly. The non-happy hour wines are also quartino sized so I got the Prisoner Unshackled, which was an upgrade. For food we shared the margarita pizza and the truffle fries. I ordered the chocolate lava cake for dessert. The food was average, the wine plentiful, and the happy hour offers quite decent.

    From the hostess when we walked in. She was leaving, yawning, barely acknowledged us When she sat us she spoke as she was walking away. Server didn’t even notice we didn’t have menus and didn’t greet us just asked for our drinks. Would never recommend

    This was our third time at the Florentine, and it continues to be a good experience. Their food is very tasty, particularly the meatball appetizer. My only crit is that this time it could have been hotter; seemed like maybe it had been sitting for 5 minutes. Temperature notwithstanding, the meatballs were just as delicious as we had remembered from our first visit. The service was good, and the waiter let me try two different wines so I could make up my mind. Overall a nice evening. We will be back!

    We had drinks and appetizers on a Thursday night. Our server was fantastic ! The staff were all very friendly and helpful. We started with drinks: wine and a French 75. The wine was very good but the French 75 was just ok. We had the burrata, which was wonderful. We had a delicious Caesar salad. My friend loved her crab cakes appetizer. I had the Timballo which was all vegetables; very very good. The booth was comfortable and the place was lively without being noisy. I would highly recommend.

    We just wanted a quick breakfast before heading out of town… prices seemed a bit high for quality and quantity of food. Eggs were clearly mass produced egg mixture quality and though both of us ordered “scrambled dry”, they came out very wet and nearly inedible. Neither of us wanted breakfast potatoes or toast and just wanted a single pancake instead. Seemed kind of ridiculous to charge us $5/pancake. Coffee, despite being on a carafe, was cold. I could have spent the same $50 at Starbucks for a significantly better meal. Oh! And they started clearing our plates while we were still eating (like, I had to ask him to put the plate back down). It wasn’t very busy (mostly empty), so it’s not like they needed the table.

    Went for Thanksgiving and was looking forward to a great meal. Unfortunately our food was cold and unappealing. We were disappointed at $50 per person. It was not at all worth the cost. Our server was gracious and our food was taken back and done over however it was still not hot and did not seem fresh.

    Maitre'd and waiter were very pleasant, but my steak was undercooked -TWICE! Waiter and maitre'd agreed. I received credit for the meal, which was very nice. However, I just don't see enough variety on the menu to warrant me returning. The drinks were fabulous -old fashioned and specially made Mai tai. Just dont think the FLorentine merits and outstanding value. They should offer different sizes of steaks as well.We dont all have huge male appetites.

    Italian restaurants should have the ‘standard” warm bread, fresh Parmesan for the oil and salads, and a description of the sauce used. A nice differentiator would have been cinnamon in the Apple crostata and chopped apples. Service was good but the meal was below average.

    Our initial waiter was very kind and was very attentive. Towards the end of our meal I asked about the tasting notes in the espresso beans. He said let me get someone for you who know that, we waited and a rude waiter came up. He 'what is your question?' I asked him and he said "it taste like a regular coffee.' I then explained that there has to be some sort of tasting notes and I don't mean to be snobby, but the tasting notes effects what I would order. He said it was a two brothers blend, I then asked if there was a bag or label and he said no. He laughed then walked away. He was talking to other waiters about me in Spanish, I could understand him because my whole family speaks Spanish. He was making fun of my question, and of me. He stared at us until we left and made the experience uncomfortable. This is really a shame because the food was fantastic. The drinks were also incredible.
