    Truly the most exquisite service I have had in DC. The mocktails are refreshing, lobster ravioli to die for and dessert-- save room for the sweets! A+ experience

    The front of house staff needs a little work but the food and drinks are spectacular. Everyone says try the lobster ravioli but the Mafalde is where it's at. Trust me on this. Also don't miss dessert.

    It's great dinner spot! Warm and cozy areas for both dining and meeting for a cocktail. The service is excellent from valet to the busboys. The food was amazing; I highly recommend the lobster ravioli

    I'm drooling just thinking of the truffle risotto again. Save room for dessert- the donuts are crunchy on the outside, gooey on the inside amazing. The marchesa chocolate dessert was my favorite.

    Get the brodetto (like bouillabaisse). It has more seafood than appear in a season of SpongeBob SquarePants. Throw in some bread, a glass of chilled rosé, and you’re feasting in the Mediterranean. Read more

    Go with grilled calamari, lobster ravioli and share ricotta pancakes for dessert. Great service, awesome cuisine!

    This place never disappoints. The tuna tartare is to die for. Any pasta is fantastic. And the frozen negroni is the best summer cocktail in DC!

    Menu changes often, and seafood is the star. Don't overlook dessert though! Hazelnut soufflé is life changing and passionfruit panacotta is drool worthy.

    Romantic spot for a pre-Kennedy Center show dinner or stroll around Georgetown. Pastas are so fresh, and the seafood is, obviously, the right choice.

    The branzino was as close to perfection as I have had recently. I tried the mafalde and The lobster ravioli and preferred the former, although both were good.

    Made with a spiced watermelon ice cube, Fiola in Washington D.C. has a beautiful spin on a classic gin and tonic that looks as good as it takes. Read more

    Frozen negroni cocktail is the BEST summer drink. Tuna tartar is amazing, but the lobster ravioli are totally worth it. Even at $10 per raviolo. Amazing.

    11 weeks in, this establishment is a game changer. Italian with fresh fish and seafood specialties. You must save room for desert.

    Excellent food. Don't miss the lobster ravioli. Unforgettable. And I suspect a few other things in the menu are quite wonderful.

    The food was amazing, the service exceptional-like nowhere else. I hate to comment on the service because readers might think the food isn’t as great, but what can I say! The river view-a mere bonus.

    This was really good not long after it opened, but now... Terribly slow service, meager portions, not particularly fresh or flavorful. Fiola Penn Quarter is still great, but this place is A Scene.
