Nice place to eat. Took a while to get our drinks, but besides that food was good. Came out fast and had to ask for it to slow down, but highly recommend.
Food in search of an identity. Adding ginger to the ingredients does not make it ‘fusion’.
Great atmosphere, very good service. The menu was varied and interesting. I brought two friends who were very picky and discerning and they loved it. I told my assistant to book us again!
Unbelievable service from everyone.food was perfection, seating and ambiance were perfect. Covid protocols on point. Drink was one of my favorites. Definitely recommend.
Awesome outdoor dining
Everything fresh off the grill with
The portions were small.
Service was very good.
What totally turned me off was that there was. $5 covid fee!
If it was a cheap restaurant the extra burden of the cost for sanitizers etc. would justify the fee but at a above average priced restaurant $5 seems to be unnecessary.
Food came out too quickly. Table was not bused before next course. Food was cold.
Green goddess salad - great but simple
Prosciutto/burrata - decent
Pasta w/truffles - heavenly but was too cold
Short rib - awful
Chicken Parm - basic AF
Pumpkin Creme Brule - amazing
Tiramisu - basic
Mezcal cocktail - basic
$20 Pinot Noir- blah
Apple Bottom Jeans cocktail seasonal - scrumptious
$315 - wayyyyyy too expensive for the quality of food
Worst food and drinks.
Wow! Amazing food and amazing vibes. 10/10
favorite restaurant in LA. hands down. I would recommend this to anybody AND everybody!
My husband and I went to Fia for the first time as one of our last dates as a couple before our baby arrives. Was a beautiful romantic date night, we loved it!
One of the best meals of 2020. Especially after all the previous bad meals we have had at other restaurants, this meal made up for everything. Getting a reservation was challenging, at least 3 weeks out but so worth it. Everyone was very nice, our server was great and the ambiance was perfect. Our water glasses were always filled up and dirty dishes were picked up quickly so we continue to enjoy each course free of extra dishes. The Caesar salad was soooo good and its so nice they make all the salads in front of you so they are freshly tossed. We also had the beef wellington, scallops, and the blue crab agnolotti is a must! The desserts were so good too. The Chocolate dome changes per season and the fall version is the best. Also the Amalfi dessert is so light and delicious it just melts in your mouth. Overall we will be back every weekend as long as we book our reservation now. It's truly the best!
Eh. Great patio. Great service. Mediocre, expensive food.
Setting is really lovely, great COVID 19 precautions!!!
The food is very rich and fussy. Really expensive!
$18 for a side.
Get the cauliflower and corn!!
Waiting 30 min To seat
I arrived late and they accommodated me. But they constantly reminded me and my date - in front of my date - that we had to leave at a certain time. They stated this 3 times. It was hard to enjoy our time there with this constant time pressure reminder. Also, the food was not as good as it had been the first time I was there. Quite a disappointing experience.
Overall this place is beautiful and the food is absolutely delicious. Great wine selection as well. The staff is friendly and service is good. My only problem is that our table was within 2 feet of the table of 6 people next to us which is definitely not Covid approved. I was super uncomfortable with how close we were but luckily the manager or owner (not sure which) came over and helped us move our table further away from the other table. Felt a bit more crowded than some of the restaurants I’ve been to during Covid in terms of how many tables they were filling close to others. But otherwise everyone had masks and face shields and being in their gorgeous outdoor patio was lovely.
great food and great drinks. I highly recommend this place
Very nice and creative concept of a restaurant. The menu is a bit small would be nice to have some more options but there is amazing food. food presentation is also phenomenal. There is a 4% covid fee that we didn't know about until after.
Really nice ambiance and food was superb! they were very careful with their covid measures so I felt self while enjoying exquisite meals and cocktails.
Obsessed with Fia!!! Now I get why it’s always fully booked. This food is amazing and the service is too. Highly recommend
Such a lovely treat during COVID times to have such a magical outdoor experience.
It is my favorite space in Santa Monica. The back outdoor area is simply perfect. The food is great, and I’ve always had wonderful, friendly service. Only downfall is the price tag, but we go as a treat. Would definitely go more often if it was slightly more affordable.
Great environment. Food was good but not worth the value.
The spicy tuna rice cakes and truffle pasta was to die for. The chocolate ball thing didn't taste like chocolate which was a disappointment.
The food was tasty and atmosphere is really nice. However two of our party of four were petty sick to our stomachs the following day, so please try to improve food hygiene situation. That’s a big disappointment for an expensive restaurant.
What a great experience! I had my doubts considering so many restaurants are taking a considerable loss during COVID but Fia did not disappoint. The setting and ambiance is lovely and our staff was courteous and attentive. Even on a Saturday evening with reservations packed for the whole night, our staff took their time and didn't rush us one bit. The food was excellent and was a feast for the senses and the eyes.
My friend and I were late for our reservation, and we were afraid that the kitchen could be closed by the time we arrive. They called us to check if we were still gonna make it. Fortunately made it! They kindly allowed us to place our order with no rush. We Had such an amazing dinner. Cocktails are fabulous and food was amazing. Great menu, Black ink risotto with scallops and corn with truffles are a must try 💯💯
Ohhhh, last but not least: the patio is sooooo charming! I can’t wait to come back soon!
Delicious & beautiful ambiance
It was amazing! It wasn’t loud that you couldn’t have a conversation at the table so thought raising your voice. The food was amazing! The space was very cute. New favorite restaurant!
Amazing service, ambiance, and food
When is chicken parmigiana a deep fried breast covered with tomato sauce? Just because it was finished in the oven in an iron pan doesn’t make it right, especially if you’re an Italian restaurant. Short ribs had absolutely no flavor. By the way, don’t offer something as a hi-top table when it’s bar stools against a wall with an 8” shelf - give me a break. Pretty patio area, but won’t be back at this over priced joint.
Beautiful back garden, some parts gravel so don’t wear stilettos but wonderful service. The octopus appetizer was delicious and the pasta was cooked perfectly- our waiter recommendations were spot on. The cocktails were good but nothing really special - next time I’ll probably go with wine. 10/10 would come back on a special occasion.
Amazing. Everything was so yummy.
Love this place. Food and ambiance are both excellent!!!
Excellent restaurant. Great courtyard and phenomenal food.
Everything was delicious, had a great time and so glad we got to experience it!
Fia was one of the best dining experiences I’ve ever had in LA. I have a few allergies, and they took care of me no problem. They were incredibly accommodating, kind, and we were able to collaborate with what could be done. I felt really taken care of—it’s rare to find a place like this. I will definitely be coming back!
