    Service was mediocre, waiter was not attentive; didn’t ask if we wanted additional cocktails, did not refill water or ask if we wanted more bread. He did not explain the special appetizer Tre Spuntini clearly as a result, we received much more than expected at five times the cost. This is one of our favorite restaurant’s, this was an off night. We enjoyed the food.

    Terrible service. The server never came back. When he finally did, he brought two wrong orders! They were out of two dishes already and it was only 6:30pm. Dinner took forever! Yet they did not even acknowledge the birthday we were celebrating!

    I really wanted to love this place given its history and positive reviews. The service and ambiance were very good but the food left us a bit disappointed. My wife and I loved our salads (house and Caesar) but our entrées didn’t measure up. My wife had linguine tutti mare and described it as unremarkable. I had the fish of the day, which was sautéed sole. It was terribly over-salted, which masked any other flavors that might have been there to enjoy. On the other hand, our granddaughter had trenette al pesto and said it was delicious. So, a very inconsistent experience.

    They missed the mark this time. The service was good, as usual. The food was good, but not up to their usual standards. First, we ordered Peperoni Arrostiti con Bagna Cauda, which is listed as a hot appetizer of Roasted peppers served with a sauce of olive oil, cream, garlic and anchovies. $18. It turned out to be 6 tiny strips of peppers, about 2" X 1" each, and they were not hot. They were also not roasted, and they were tasteless, so they were probably only blanched. It came with a small puddle of the sauce, was was good. For $18, I expected it to be a small plateful of peppers, hot and roasted, as described. Then, the Osso Bucco was a disappointment. Again, the menu described it as Veal shank in stock, carrots, celery, onion and citrus rind served with polenta. Exactly what it should be, except it wasn't. The shank was smothered in a puree, which tasted OK, but I was literately expecting carrots, onions, and citrus rind, in pieces that I could eat with a fork. That's the way it has been served everywhere I have ever had it, and the way they described it on their menu. Very disappointed.

    Menu was fantastic. Wine list amazing as well. Items to note. I had an allergy and the waiter forgot completely about it. And I got contaminated and have not felt well since. I ordered the veal piccata and it was very salty. Too salty. The trio of mushrooms needed more flavor. Got desert and an aperitif. Drink should have come with the desert not before. Was almost gone by the time the deserts arrived. With better care and better timing things would have been better. Very surprised at the saltiness of the piccata.

    Lovely little restaurant. my table was against a column in the middle of the room, so I felt like I was sitting in a hallway. but my biggest disappointment was the Tutti Mare. The calamari was teeny tiny .25 to .75 inch cross cuts. The few clams and muscle were also very small. There was a couple pieces of poached salmon, and a couple scallops. My biggest complaint was the flavor, or lack there of . I had to ask for more garlic which was brought in Olive oil, No butter flavor. I wasn't compelled to finish or even take the left overs. Service was great and the Cosmopolitan was great.

    front of house at Fior was impeccable. The service was very attentive. The food is tasty. It’s more comfort Italian than the Italian fare served up at Itria and more recent restaurants, but hey, they’ve been around on the Hotel San Remo since 1906.
