Super place; fabulous food, great wine list and interesting (and delicious) cocktails. Desserts are worth leaving room for too.
Service at our table was painfully slow. Other tables who came long after us got their food and drinks before us. The meal I ordered .. was out of stock ..which was aggravating since other persons seated after us got it. I had wine spilled all over me .. including on my face and clothes. We had to even ask the waitress to bring sugar for our cappuccinos at the end of our meal .. which would be anticipated to be part of the normal set when coffee is served. Not a happy customer.
Hi Nancy, first of all I would like to thank you for your feedback! I'm really sorry to hear about your experience and I will definitely review this on our next staff meeting! I would like to talk to you about what happened and make it right. Could I ask you to contact me at email@example.com Thank you in advance Jakub Palous, Manager
It was amazing and highly recommend the three course dinner with wine pairing. Our compliments to the Chef and the best BC sommellier. Enjoyed very much...service outstanding!
Hi Lossiea, thank you so much for your kind words! It keeps us getting better! Cheers! Jakub
Absolutely love the ambiance, it’s like a hole in the wall kind of restaurant. Well decorated and each table has it’s appropriate space. Not overly loud so you can have a conversation.
Menus is small but focused, food is well presented. We had two pasta dish, an antipasta and the special of the night which was a pork dish.
The pasta was nice and chewy, or what’s it called al dente. However the sauce was not extremely salty, I need to drink a ton of water after every bite. The pork dish that we had was extremely tender, however you can obviously see part of it is undercook as it’s quite red. This is a neat place and I hope it was just my one off bad experience.
Thank you for your feedback!
The food was disappointing - not authentic Italian.
Hi Gianna, thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry you we disappointed by the experience. Just wanted to say we are not trying to be authentic Italian, we are Italian inspired restaurant and we try to elevate traditional Italian dishes and introduce new flavors.
Very tasty food, great service, highly recommended!
Thank you for your feedback Derek!
The pastas are delicious, especially the papardelle bolognese! Lovely ambience, good service.
Thank you for your feedback! Much appreciated!
Found this place last minute after visiting Granville Island— very accommodating.... reasonable prices and everyone enjoyed their meal!
Thank you for kind words!
We enjoyed it and the staff were great.
Thank you for your feedback Peter!
Chef accommodated gluten allergy and food was great.
Thank you for your review David! We do our best to accommodate any allergies. We offer gluten free pasta and we have several dairy free dishes on the menu! Looking forward to seeing you again!
Very authentic Italian flavors done with excellent execution. Pasta that are obliviously made fresh, with rich, ingredient-driven flavors. Setting was simple and relaxing, with friendly and understated service. The pricing is a little high for the food, but I can appreciate the effort required to make this level of food.
Thank you for the review! We keep the prices as low and possible but there is lots of labor behind each plate as everything is hand-crafted from scratch. Looking forward to seeing you again!
Excellent food and pleasant service. Highly recommended and an excellent pre-theatre venue.
Came here for my birthday dinner around 6pm on Saturday and very happy with the service, the comfort of the ambiance and especially the food! Ordered 2 side salads (one kale based and other arugula) that were generously portioned to start and along with a pizza and bucatini cacio e pepe. Really loved all the dishes and it didn’t feel heavy. Portion sizes were just right. The lavender pans cotta was also a great dessert to end the meal. We’ll definitely be back soon!
salad were decent, pasta was over cook, service wasn’t very attentive, when we got to the dessert they just have one option on Friday night. Is very sad because the restaurant have a beautiful layout to enjoy!!
The menu in the restaurant had recently changed and did not reflect the menu posted online which we expected when we showed up.
Our menu is small, seasonal and changes very often. We do update our website fiorerestaurants.ca and our Open Table presentation so it always show our current menu. Could I ask you where you looked at our menu so we can update it as well? Thank you for your help!
Good food and service.
Great experience- we’ll be back!
Thank you! Looking forward to having you back!
Another great meal at Fiore!
Thank you Terence! It's always lovely to see you!
Fiore was a lovely experience with great service, great ambience, and great food! I was there for a solo date, dinner and drinks with just myself and a book. The restaurant wasn't very busy at all, about half full, so the noise level never got too loud, which I appreciated (and this was on a Saturday at 8pm). I often have dinner alone, and often I'm doing so because I want to be left alone, and the waitresses who were working at the time were great about that, only coming by when they were sure I needed something (like when I had finished a drink) or when I was purposefully making eye contact and trying to get their attention. I really appreciated that, since sometimes waitstaff can be overly solicitous, but it did sort of become a problem later on, as I was trying to leave on time to catch a movie and had a difficult time getting someone's attention so I could get my bill. That might be something to keep in mind if you're in a rush -- but if you're just looking for a place to go and have a long, slow meal without feeling like you're being rushed out the door, this place would be perfect. Bonus: they have a special menu of different kinds of negronis; I had the blood orange one and it was absolutely fantastic. Actually, everything I had was great (the negroni, foccacia bread, and gnocchi) -- if someone had asked me to describe exactly what I wanted before going to dinner, I would have described exactly what I ended up getting.
Hi Ashlynn, thank you for your review! I'm sorry you're experience got a bit spoiled by not getting the bill immediately when you wanted to go see a movie - next time just let your server know what time you need to leave and we try watch the time for you (we are used to it due to the next door theater). See you soon! Jakub, Manager
Nice cosy restaurant with good food and reasonably priced.
Thank you for your rating Cynthia! This means a lot to us!
I had pizza there. What they serve as PIZZA is actually flat bread. Nothing impressing.
Hi Allan, we do hand-crafted roman style pizzas that can look like flat bread and we are not hiding it - it's says on our menu and every server will describe the pizza that way if you ask. I'm sorry it did not impress you but I hope you'll give us another chance and try our ANTIPASTI or FRESH PASTA.
Delicious! So happy we have such a great Italian gem in this neighborhood!
Hey neighbor! Thank you for your review! Means a lot to us!
Great little spot in a weird location, well worth the work to find it. Good wines and great upscale Italian dishes
duck pizza was great and the restaurant was prefect for celebrating a birthday in a small gathering
Fiore is my "go to" dinner place when attending a Stanley Theatre production.
This is our second time back and we're already planning what we'll have off the menu next time.
Thank you so much for such a great review! This means a lot to us!
Always a great experience. Love the cocktails!
Thank you Terence! Next time you're in let us know which is your favorite!
We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and despite the fact that their fridge had defrosted during the night we were pleasantly surprised they honored our reservation. We found the food excellent and very tasty.
We will return and will recommend Fiore.
Hi Pippa, thank you understanding our "fridge troubles" and limited menu that evening. We are hoping to see you back so you can enjoy our full menu. Thank you for your review! This means a huge deal to us!
Nice Close location if you are going to the nearby theater on a Saturday night.
Smaller restaurant which can feel a bit crowded. Very clean with friendly staff.
Food was the highlight so this small little unassuming find will be added to our
list to return.
To not be disappointed, make a reservation on a Saturday as we noticed a few groups
being turned away.
Hi Mark thank you for a great feedback! And yes we recommend reservation especially on Friday and Saturday when Stanley theater has a show going. Looking forward to seeing you again!
The pasta we ordered was over cooked (soft and falling apart), which at an Italian restaurant is unforgivable.
hi ??? yes you are right it is unforgivable and we are really sorry about that! Next time please let your server know right-away and we will make sure this gets fixed on the spot. Hope you will give us another chance.
Terrific salad, great pizza - and all served in a timely enough fashion to get us to Opening Night at the Stanley. I'll be back!
Charming and romantic atmosphere. A bit expensive but a nice visit for a special occasion.
Thank you for your review Katie! We keep the prices as low and possible but there is lots of labor behind each plate as everything is hand-crafted from scratch. Looking forward to seeing you for another special occasion!
I loved the ability to share pizzas (cauliflower and duck especially good) and sides. I also liked the small, innovative menu. The service is attentive. Highly recommend this small treasure!
Thank you for such a great review Barbara! Hope to see you soon!
Great cozy spot, nice ambiance, good wine selection. Our server was awesome, she was relaxed, didn't rush us, made good recommendations for food/wine, and we had fun with her. Homestyle italian, the pasta dishes were large portions, we split 2 appies (flatbread + beet salad) which was more than enough for 3 people. It was a weekday so quiet, not sure noise level on weekends. We would definitely return and recommend it if you want a more intimate space with solid food.
Thank you for the review! It means a lot to us!
Came here for dinner and late night drinks. Got their special octopus appetizer, duck pizza, and trotolle pasta.
The octopus dish was very well presented, with a variety of flavors that worked well with each other. But the texture of the octopus was too chewy and not bouncy enough.
The duck pizza was our favorite, definitely recommend!
The trotolle pasta was cooked to al-dente and very good as well. Just slightly more saltier than we expected.
Overall, highly recommend this place, and especially their late night drinks!
Thank you for the feedback!
We usually dine at Siena/Fiore before going to the Stanley, but this was a disappointing visit. The limited menu was even more limited with the removal of the lamb option, so my wife and I chose the special of pasta with squid. It was an unfortunate choice - looked and tasted like leftovers, and our friend did not have much more luck with her duck pizza. Nice pleasant service, but poor food.
We much preferred Siena with their 3-course options and discount for Stanley patrons.
So we will find an alternative dining experience from now on before the play.
Love sitting at the bar for a chill dinner with my fiancé. Great selection of beer and super yummy dinner options. This is our new South Granville favourite.
Enjoyed the menu, would probably purchase a bottle of wine instead of going with the wine pairing simply due to my partner not being a huge fan of dessert wines.
Ambience was good. A tad noisy but not overly loud. The pasta was slightly over cooked. Overall not too bad an experience.
Thank you for your positive rating. Sorry about the pasta - it shouldn't have happened - if anything like that happen in the future let the server know and we will happily remake your dish.
we've eaten a lot of italian food both in italy & here in vancouver & we were disappointed. not that the dishes we chose, arugula salad on bed of carrot & something puree, roman pizza & lamb dish weren't tasty but their flavours weren't distinct and they looked similar.
Thank you for the feedback Ingrid. I appreciate the constructive feedback and will discuss it with our new chef. We introduced our new menu just recently and are still fine-tuning all our dishes and your feedback is very helpful. Hope you give us another chance if few weeks.
