We’ve been coming here for five years now for our anniversary. This establishment never disappoints. Such a beautiful venue with great food. Service is second to none. Will continue to visit annually.
Very good food at Fiola Mare but prices are too high. Disappointing that the options for red wine at the $100 or less per bottle level are limited. Lovely location and view. Noise level a bit too high for our comfort.
The food and service was impeccable and I will definitely visit the restaurant again!
Great sea food restaurant in Georgetown, Washington DC. The food was awsome... very good indeed, and the service, very attentive.
Celebrated wedding anniversary at Sunday brunch and all was wonderful with the exception of the noise level. At times I could not understand a waiter or other wait staff so I just nodded my head and hoped that that was not going to cause me to agree to something that I would not wish to agree to. Other than the noise, it was perfection. We especially appreciated the nods to our celebration with the complimentary amuse bouchée, cake sliver and anniversary card. All in all we felt very special on our special day. We look forward to a return visit when they will, hopefully, have contained the noise to a degree.
We waited long time for our meal....2 guests received their meals before Dover Sole was finally filleted & served. It was served tepid. Not warm or hot. That was very disappointing as it’s featured as a specialty.
Must have been an off night, service okay, food okay. Sadly nothing blew me away, service was rough, food was good but again for the price it did not at all meet the expectations for a culinary experience. Very little excitement from the presentation and the whole experience really a disappointment.
This is, by far, one of the best dining experiences one could hope for! 5 stars from me on every level! Thank you Fiola Mari! Bravo!
The waitress shamed us for only ordering entrees and mocktails, not the $75 champagne brunch
What a fantastic experience! The quality of the food, the freshness of the fish, the presentation and overall experience were outstanding. Service was personal, efficient and attentive.
World class restaurants show their quality in every component of the dining experience. In our case, a delay with our table due to the previous diners overextending their stay resulted not only in apologies but in a complimentary round of Prosecco and oysters. That is the way a top restaurant treats its customers.
Not only a local must but truly a world class experience.
Krystalee made our excellent meal a memorable one by catering to our foodie needs. Her Exceptional service accompanied a great meal will make it our favorite DC restaurant. The foie gras torchon was an excellent appetizer followed by the white truffle ravioli and the mixed grill was delicious. The desserts were exceptional as we tried the bombolini and the dark chocolate dish.
From beginning to end every thing was delicious and we weren’t rushed
Restaurant wasn’t full n food took very long time to be served and so the check even after mentioned we’re in a hurry. White napkins transferred lots of fur to my black suit, bread was stale not crunch at all, moketel didn’t come w rosemary little stem though it was supposed to, the experience wasn’t worthy $125 for 2. 😏
Tuna carpaccio was a good starter in terms of presentation and taste. Hamachi was too heavy on the citrus, avoidable unless you like tangy flavor. Husband ordered trout that satisfied him well and I had the bucatini, pasta with prawns, that also was delightful. Servings were just right to make room for bomboloni and tiramisu, sweet closing for a lovely dining experience. We will definitely go back.
Great ambience, super food and the best view in town!!
The coolest place in the United States of America
It was amazing! They forgot we were celebrating a bday. Told hostess but otherwise a 10!!!!!!
Birthday dinner with my daughter. The service and the food were exceptional. This place was like we were back in Italy. Fabulous
Absolutely outstanding service with attention to every detail and a real focus on customer experience. The food was fresh and beautifully prepared. Loved it!
Lobster ravioli and bombolini...divine!!! Ben our waiter was terrific as well.
Service was very slow on the patio. No mention of our anniversary which I mentioned on the reservation. Food was served luke warm consistently and, quite frankly, was a bit underwhelming (with the exception of the 1lb of calamari). Was hoping for more.
We took my father in his wheelchair and the restaurant could not have been more accommodating. Thank you FM.
Staff was wonderful, very attentive and informative. The food was excellent
Birthday for Husband!
Nice spot outside on the terrace. Super expensive the food is first rate. Expect this to be a special occasion meal and wonderful seafood. We found the service attentive when it was there but la long time between visits,
Recommend the fish served at the table. Excellent presentation and wonderful seafood.
Never fails to deliver quality food and service! Wine selection is tops.
Dinning at Fiols Mare is always a special fine dining experience. The menu choices are so varied and provide opportunities to experience new foods. The ambiance is welcoming and bright. The service is always attentive without being intrusive.
The food and atmosphere and service were superb. The food did come out slow and our 12:15 meal had our entrees delivered at 1:15!
This was our second trip to Fiola Mare and I was surprised to get a reservation a day ahead. Based on our food I think I know why. First the menu options were very limited in terms of specials, and many were uninteresting at least to us.. The ongoing grill dishes were good but very small portions. The pastas were so so. We had a good wine although I never saw the price. We had two bottle for 4 of us and the bill was over $400. Will be my last time here.
Great restaurant to celebrate special events. Food is fresh and spectacular
Wirklich tolles Essen und super Ambiente. Nicht billig, aber wirklich das Geld wert.
This is one of my very favorite restaurants in the DC area. Although it is expensive, I always leave having enjoyed my entire experience. Shared the lobster ravioli dish with the two other diners in our party....there are three raviolis in a serving so sharing is a good option considering the price. Had the mixed seafood grille.....delicious....and the bomboloni for desert....wow!
We had a wonderful celebration of our sons 21st birthday. Thank you all for a fabulous evening.
Amazing food, great service...definitely on the spendier side but worth the splurge!
One of my top 5 favorite restaurants in the area. Always excellent food and service.
I can’t say enough good things about my experience at Fiola Mare. Absolutely one of the best restaurants in the DC area and the best meal I have eaten in this city apart from Mr Trabocchi’s other gorgeous restaurant Del Mar. Everything is top notch here, from the floors to the textiles, to the furniture, the china, serving and dining utensils, to the expertly prepared fresh ingredients. Even the oil for bread dipping, the bread itself, the tiny flowers on my crudo and salad, no detail is overlooked. Absolutely the closest thing to eating a meal in Italy. We went for our anniversary and the staff was gracious and generous. We were made to feel very comfortable and special. We look forward to coming back and to trying all of Mr. Trabocchi’s restaurants!
We had the champagne brunch. This was my second time doing the champagne brunch and it is worth the value. The food is made to perfection and the champagne cocktails are great. My only problem this time was the food services, the food was brought out in rapid succession. We ended up asking for dessert to be delayed because it was all happening too fast. Otherwise, everything was above expectation. The hosts were very friendly, we had a nice table and the ambiance was beautiful.
CARLOS IS THE BEST. MOST INCREDIBLE DINING EXPERIENCE I’VE EVER HAD!
The food and service were absolutely fantastic. We had the eggplant appetizer (amazing), lobster ravioli, and the tuna. Everything was as good as you'd expect. Top it off with a wonderful bottle of red wine and the mini donuts for dessert and it was an incredible night out.
