First time dining out since the pandemic. Felt good to have a relaxing evening. Restaurant week was great. Will be back.
So impressed with this restaurant. Be warned! They take Covid VERY serious. Everyone sanitizes hands and masks are worn. Our server, Mark was exceptional. His finesse when dealing with us made us feel like VIPs and he was always on the move. The food was fantastic! My only suggestion was that the Short Ribs were a little salty. Great flavor but salty. The croquette was crispy and delicious. The flan was smooth and flavorful.
Overall an excellent experience and im looking forward to visiting again soon.
Oysters were great, cocktails were awesome - love the "social hour" menu, think it's a great idea. My chocolate mousse dessert was silky smooth and very delicious. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating.
The short rib I had from the Restaurant Week menu was so, so, overly salty, it was unfortunate. I should have sent it back but was caught up in heavy conversation at my table, so I didn't do anything about it.
Excellent all around. I was very impressed by the Covid-19 safety measures. They are being more careful than anywhere else I have seen.
Food was delicious.
Food was really out of this world good, both our apps and our entrees were delightful. Oysters were not bad but nothing special. Service was excellent, both waitstaff and managers were super attentive and friendly.
Food was amazing
Service was very attentive
We ate outside on the sidewalk/road, food was great, and the manager engaged us with a great recommendation. Servers need a little polish, this was a Thursday during restaurant week, almost a practice before busy weekend
Great restaurant week menu.
Had such a great dinner. Fantastic food and service.
Such great food and amazing value especially for brunch
Birthday dinner was great from start to finish. Great food and drink.
We had THREE homeless people come up to our table outside to ask for money!!!
We really enjoyed our reservation and look forward to coming back.
Great food and pleasant staff. Very accommodating to make changes to our reservation.
Excellent, excellent food, drink and service.
With my lady
What was written up in the NYT is a far cry from where we went... the chef must’ve changed. Servers and staff were all nice, but food was really not impressive. Drinks were flat, fries were burnt (it’s a “Belgian” restaurant- how do you burn your fries???) Was so looking forward to the moules marinière- not only was it not marinière, but had no flavor (google it- marinière does not have mirepoix in it!)
Super disappointed considering the overpriced menu, and completely pride-less chef. Would never go back, and do not recommend. There are much better, simpler spots in new haven to eat.
Not what we expected. Before our visit we saw that it had really nice reviews but we were disappointed after our dinner there.
Even though the service was okay the food left a lot to desire. We were expecting better quality food but nothing stood out. It wasn’t bad, there was just nothing special about it.
The only thing we enjoyed from the menu was the creme brule.
I’m sympathetic to changes due to the pandemic, but found my experience at Florian quite disappointing. Service was Meh (had to ask for napkins, utensils and an ice bucket for our wine), and the food like something from a school cafeteria. Disappointing as I’ve always had great experiences there.
Service is good and food is tasty
Defiantly will go there again
They did a great job observing COVID guidelines and we felt very safe. Mussels were tasty!
Always excellent thoughtful service and tasty food.
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.
Father’s day. We do like Cafe Florian a lot. And the Oysters was as always really fresh and delicious.
Fabulous and attentive! Delish Food!
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.
Was a really cute place, casual but not too casual. Food was really good.
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.
Great experience, great food! Glad they are reopening.
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.
Just ok. Wanted it to be so much better. Love the bistro feel but just doesn’t hit the mark.
Comfortable, tasty. Pretty place
Under the radar French Bistro on Chapel Street in New Haven, CT almost on Yale University campus..very French ambiance, Belgian/French menu...had Moules Frites, Elgin’s battered fish and chips..great service, great for Francophiles
Wonderful lunch! Will be back
Best Seafood in New Haven
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.
I love this place!
