    The setting and ambience is beautiful! Once you walk through a tight walkway into the back it feels you entered a magic place! Truly beautiful! The hostess was very charming and nice and made you feel welcome. We had to wait at the bar since our table wasn’t ready which I do not mind doing. It was three of us and it took a good 3 min to get noticed by the bar tender who was slightly overwhelmed. He was nice about it but if he would’ve greeted us as we set we would have felt a bit less unwelcome. We got to our table before we got our drinks which we just had ordered. Once at the table our waitress also seemed a bit less excited to have us and seemed dry and not very personable. Since we ordered our drinks at the bar which was just Champaign and wine it took surprisingly long to get it. Had to remind her after telling her we ordered at the bar. We finished our first course when we finally got our long awaited booze. The food was EXCELLENT on every level!!! Observing the waiters they all seemed not very personable which is a shame since it would’ve made our experience so much better!!! Once we ordered dessert our waitress finally warmed up and we got an unforced smile! I will go back again maybe not a 9pm dinner tho perhaps everyone was tired :)

    This was our second time dinning at Fia and this meal was to celebrate my graduation. While the cocktails and dessert were both good, the peach salad had a new addition of cayenne pepper and we can’t eat spicy food. Additionally the tuna was ovverpowered by the Szechuan pepper crust. We couldn’t eat it. Highly disappointed in this experience and are no unlikely to return other than for a drink.

    I made a reservation for a birthday dinner and when I arrived a few minutes early I was told there would be a half-hour wait for an outside table. I suppose outside seating isn't guaranteed with a reservation but it was a bit of an unpleasant surprise. The service was so-so: the dishes came out slowly, the server seemed preoccuppied. It was a busy evening to be fair. However, the food and drinks were very uneven. In general, the specials we ordered (a starter and one of the main dishes) were excellent. The pasta dish ordered from the menu was a bland mush. It was the same story with the drinks: the wine was great, the cocktail far too sweet despite having mezcal. There's no accounting for taste, as they say, but for such prices we both expected better overall.

    Went here for our annavarsary because it looked really good. They literally never mentioned anything about it even though I put it down while making our reservations. Anyways, we ordered 2 cocktails which were both delicious. The one cocktail wasn't on the menu but it sounded really good-- turned out to be $24 which is a bit ridiculous. We ordered the brussel sprouts and cauliflower to start which were both AMAZING!! Absolutely loved both and they were big portions too, we couldn't finish them lol. We also got the tuna cones or whatever, I don't like seafood so I was not into it but my boyfriend loved it. We then got 2 main courses, one being this goat cheese pasta with fried zucchini which was pretty good. I feel like it wasn't anything too special but we still ate it up. We also got the salmon and it was just not good. It was fishy and we didn't eat more than one bite each. Kind of a disappointment considering it was $50. Our waiter was nice but nothing amazing, she seemed kind of preoccupied. Great ambiance overall though, would come back and just get appetizers. Kind of hard to justify spending so much money.

    Very creative menu. Out of 11 items ordered for a table of 4. The steak was the least impressive, could have done fine without it but everything else was pretty darn great. My favorite was the yellow tail dish. The cocktails were incredibly balanced and delicious. The desserts to die for and service was spot on. Servers truly know the menu and have great recommendations to enhance your experience.

    Wow. Fia is fantastic. The calamari was tender and served with a lovely aoli. The peach buratta was topped with an amazing truffle honey. The briwn butter truffle cavatelli is a star. And very nice cocktails. Service was informed and pleasant. The outdoor location feels like someone’s beautiful backyard. This place is a home run!

    Our server was wonderful. Several of our favorite dishes had changed, not improving but going away from what we loved. There used to be a GF chocolate dessert I could eat if they kept out the brownie at the bottom. There was chocolate sorbet on the menu that we could put chocolate and caramel sauce on. The branzino was a pure delicious fish not stuffed with anything. Still a beautiful restaurant with great service, but I don’t like the changes to the menu. Much more expensive and not quite as good.

    A bit expensive and honestly however little the amount, it's not appropriate to charge for healthcare. I deduct out of the tip and I think everyone should. The rest of humanity pays for their own. We pay nearly 10 times what we used to pay. Plus now we pay 3.8% on Capital Gains on our retirement. Then being hit with this at a restaurant is just plain inappropriate.

    The restaurant itself is beautiful and I loved the ambiance. We arrived 30 minutes early fiord an 8:30 reservation and were seated at 8:40 pm after I walked up to ask what the issue was. There were small parties who arrived after we did around our reservation time who were seated before us. The drinks were amazing but the food was ok; definitely not worth the price. I get that it’s gourmet but the flavor was lacking in some of the dishes. The spaghetti was mushy and the chicken Parmesan was extremely salty. My 4 scallops for almost $50 were delicious but the tortellini was not very good. I wish the entrees came with a side dish or potatoes, rice or pasta given how inexpensive those items are. The yellowtail starter was not good. No one at the table liked it. Our waiter was great, however, which is the reason why we left a 20% tip. I will say that we have been to Fia’s brunch and that met all our expectations, but the dinner, not so much.
