Extraordinary. Among the best meals I’ve ever had anywhere — from the bread and butter, to the wines, the mains and dessert. Every bite full of flavor and invention. Can’t wait to go back.

Once again, another wonderful 3-course prix fixe dinner at La Fia. Didn't even have to tell them to turn the lights up this time! Thanx!

Small space, but nice ambiance. A limited menu. Both the small plates and the entrees we ordered were very good, albeit a bit rich. The ganache stood out as the best dessert. The service was friendly and attentive without being overwhelming. A little pricey for what it was. It was a good experience but will probably not return.

One of our very favorite restaurants. Creative, delicious food with unique twists and menu changes and keeps giving wonderful variety and choices. Service and servers are the best because the owners are the best and always think about the customers. Cozy, intimate restaurant that is a great getaway for an evening with friends, business associates, or with a special someone.

Booked a table for two for a birthday celebration. The waitress was very accommodating in planning the surprise by adding a candle for our dessert. We asked for recommendations and they were very accommodating and excellent. Enjoyed the beet and the duck appetizers and the steal and scallop entrees were both excellent as well. Order the mushroom side dish if it is available, you will not regret it. The sorbet was also unique and was the perfect finish to an excellent meal. I recommend the restaurant highly, as the food and service were outstanding. They might want to consider dressing up the entryway as it is right next to the dining area and is not inviting, but that is a small issue that does not take away from a lovely experience.

La Fia exceeded our expectations! Our server was knowledgeable. The food and wine incredible. Hell, my fiancé and I even wanted to ask about the music playlist because of how groovy it was! This is the first review I’ve left on here and quite possibly my last, but La Fia deserves it. Salute!

We dined for Valentines day in the Window Seat. The lighting was so romantic, the food was amazing, our server was great. The Duck made us close our eyes for a minute. Portions were great and service and timing were perfect. The only recommendation would be to serve the Lobster Bisque hotter. Otherwise, we LOVED everything.

Bryan Sikora and his staff always do an outstanding job. The food, service and ambiance was great. In a time where Covid has made dining indoors a neutered experience, La Fia excels and delivers a fabulous dining experience. We have been dining at La Fia dozens of times and each time it gets better and better. Bravo!

La Fia is our number one Go To restaurant in Wilmington. The staff is fantastic; attentive and knowledgeable of all dishes on the menu. The meal starts off with the very best bread service in Wilmington. The menu changes seasonally, but it I always contains interesting dishes with the most delicate hand in seasoning. Currently, the scallops and Duo of Pork are menu standouts. We always get the Octopus as a starter and it has never disappointed. The beet salad is especially impressive. Each of the desserts are inventive twists on classics. The flavors are impressive. Must try after an amazing dinner.

Be sure to add La Fia to your list for dinner.

La Fia has remained one of the finest restaurants in Wilmington since it has opened. While some of Brian Sikora's establishments have been underwhelming, this bistro continues to hit the mark. Food quality is excellent and creative. In the time of COVID, while many restaurants are minimizing their menu choices, La Fia continues to offer many selections. The only disappointment is the fact that the wine menu either has pedestrian inexpensive choices or very good high priced choices, not much in the middle, but this will not ruin your meal. I highly suggest you make a reservation and enjoy a great meal !

La Fia is one of our favorite spots to visit. The service is always great as is the food. They are also strictly following all COVID safety precautions. Our last few visits we have had Amy who is always very welcoming and attentive. The sparkling rose is my favorite and I always look forward to having that when I am there. While the food is always good my husband and I do miss some items from the older menus as this new one definitely has a different flair. It is definitely a must try!
