    Fabulous food with an innovative cocktail menu. We came here for a date night and ordered the chef's menu. This is an excellent way to sample their top dishes and it's really good value (you'll leave feeling full). Our top dishes were the clams in Nduja butter (wow) and the "surprise" dish at the end.

    Everything I had was impressive. Highly recommend. Great service, the food came out at a great pace, not too fast or slow. Delicious shareables. Would go back in a heartbeat. The puree/sauce on steak was FIRE and mushrooms were so good. Didn't love the tuna aioli on the cabbage but I'm a no fish girl so to be expected

    I recently dined at florette having booked the dinner four days in advance. Unfortunately, my experience was far from enjoyable. Despite arriving on time, we felt rushed and uncomfortable throughout the evening. The manager blamed the computer system for the rushed service, which was not a satisfactory explanation. Despite our plates just arriving, we were pressured and given a 10-minute warning at 8:10 pm. This created an unwelcome atmosphere, especially on a first date. I remained polite and even tipped well, but the constant monitoring and lackluster apology with a subpar shot did not make up for the overall unpleasant experience.

    We really enjoyed our meal at florette! Unfortunately, despite having a reservation, we waited a half an hour to actually get our table. While the manager brought us a drinks menu, nothing else was offered or done to make up for this. Once we finally sat down, food was delicious and the service was great. They certainly didn’t rush us, so I can see why the table took so long.

    Great experience, with delicious food, and considerate, charming and friendly staff. I would highly recommend for anyone looking for an intimate dining experience. It's unpretentious and easy, but also delivers on the details. I also enjoyed the space itself, which wasn't too big, and had tasteful decor. The drink and dining menu seemed to combine interesting flavours without being too alienating.

    Cute tiny place! Cocktails were funky and fun. Wouldn’t recommend the swordfish or the Manila clams. Both dishes were too salty and the fish was overly oily, could only taste the oil and not the eggplant purée.

    Food and drinks were fantastic. Only downsides preventing this place from getting 5 stars is: - someone kept messing with the lights - its very cramped, the management should consider removing the two tables in the middle of the restaurant...it probably violates the fire code too.

    It’s rare for me to go to a restaurant and not be able to identify ingredients. There were flavour combinations that made me and my friend wonder what we were tasting because they were so unique and unexpected. Go now while you can still reserve a table… This place is gonna be booked up soon!

    Missed the mark of all the hype The vegetable dishes and bread were fantastic. Steak quality was grisly and very disappointing. Tables are too small, chairs too stiff making it hard to relax. Too bad.
