Spectacular meal, service, drinks.

The mussels were to magnificent. The fish was fresh and delicious.

The service was excellent. I interacted with a manager/owner/chef (the person sounded authoritative) and they were kind and friendly and professional.

Great service, good cocktails but the food menu was too basic. I went for my girlfriends birthday and we got still hungry, we couldn’t find a fitting option to complement the mussels pot. But nice place, I guess must be for COVID

Atelier Florian was wonderful. I will absolutely go back soon. The service was also fantastic; they were sensitive to all COVID-19 regulations, but still warm and friendly and accommodating.

For our first outing since the pandemic shutdown, we sat outside at a table and had a wonderful lunch. The freshest lobster bisque and delectable Kahlua cheesecake were highpoints. The service was perfect and couldn't have been a better way to celebrate my son's 49th birthday.

My husband and recently on a June Sunday reserveda table outside and enjoyed oysters, mussels and delicious cocktails. The waiter bartender was friendly and accomadating. I love the food and the vibe at the Florian. It is one of my favorite restaurants in New Haven.

Dinner was delicious -the service was great- only reason I didn’t give five stars for all categories is because we were dining on the sidewalk but that is the only place we could e. After 3 months of no dining out. We were very grateful they are making the effort to be open!!

Two things worth commenting on: It took quite a while for our waitress to take our order and I feel she should have offered us beverages right at the start.

Also, when we first arrived it was VERY COLD in the restaurant. Even though our waitress said she turned up the heat and we moved away from the front window, my feet were still cold and hands slightly numb throughout the meal.

Otherwise the food was very good.

We were out in upstairs room, which was spacious and quiet, but clearly the overflow room with many tables not set up for guests. This made you feel like you were in an afterthought.

This restaurant is not what I expected . The restaurant itself is very nice . The decor and setup are beautiful. The food the does not compare to the other restaurants downtown . Our appetizers were ok we had fish tacos and the fried coconut shrimp . My boyfriend ordered the Ghost Light which was very good ; I ordered the rose and it was horrible . The waitress was very nice and offered me a different glass of rose on tap it was equality as bad. Our main courses were tasteless and the seafood didn’t not taste fresh . My boyfriend had the seafood risotto the mussels were complete mush and I had the lobster roll. There was no garnish it just looked like a lobster roll from a regular seafood take out spot which I didn’t not expect . Our waitress was very nice and attentive despite the fact that there were very few servers and she seemed stretched thin between all the tables she was waiting . Despite our experience I will try this restaurant again for brunch in the spring .

We went when they had their price fixed Valentines Menu. I called ahead to make sure they had their regular menu and was assured they had their menu minus one item. Not true! Their menu was very abbreviated. I ended up ordering mussels provenscale. The mussels were plump and well cooked but the broth was flavorless, and there was only a little at the bottom of the pot. A big disappointment!!!

Our first time at atelier Florian and I must say that it was better than I expected. the sliders and Shisito peppers were amazing and the oysters were also quite good. My wife loved her salmon which was cooked perfectly and my scallops and risotto were absolutely delicious. I would definitely come back again

Food & service were both great. Maybe 5 stars should be reserved for super high end but it was perfect for our pre-theater dinner.

We were located near the bar area so it was extremely noisy. There is no atmosphere to the place and no one seemed to know who our waiter was so we sat for awhile before we were taken care of. The waiter was slow to check in on us and never brought over any bread. Aside from the service and the atmosphere, the food was good. I can't recommend it based on the above but everyone has different taste in atmosphere. I think it is worth to go at least once. It may have just been an off day.

Mark, the person with whom I corresponded, made the birthday occasion special for our guests and the birthday boy. The food was perfect: the beet salad with salmon and the avocado toast and the mussels were as good as could be. The service was attentive, friendly and non- intrusive.
And it was easy to converse.
Excellent!

Nice quality selection of entree's, esp the variations on the traditional moules frites. The sauces are very tasty and have a subtlety in seasonings. Entrees priced nicely but bordering on the high side for New Haven. $20 for a Gin Martini up is excessive... for New Haven or even in NYC! I paid $13 for the same drink 4 months ago!

Everything from appetizers through to dessert & cappucino was outstanding. Our table had the sliders which were a great starter. For entrees we had lobster ravioli, seafood rissoto & rib eye. All excellent dishes. The sauces were especially well done. The creme brûlée was one of the best we’ve ever had anywhere - including France! If you are looking for a lovely evening with excellent food & service this is the place!

Okay food, not worth the price, however also was missing items listed on the menu as part of the dish. Nicoise salad was abysmal, lettuce was like iceberg more than romaine with one potato (not potato salad as listed in the menu) about 4 haricot verts which totaled the size of my pinky and a piece of thin dry chicken all for the price of 17 dollars. Mussels were okay, but Jacks steakhouse has much better mussels. Beyond burger was pure smoke and inedible. Unfortunately was not that good overall, but appetizers were delicious.

Had a reservation for four. Was seated at a table upstairs in a very confined space. Food was very good but ambiance was unbearable.
