This is a neighborhood restaurant that has consistently served excellent meals for years. Reasonable prices and friendly service make for a delightful evening.

I love these places. From the outside it is very non-nonchalant, squeezed between a couple gritty bars. But the atmosphere inside is warm and friendly and the food is just amazing. Wonderfully prepared and elegantly presented. Oh and the souffles are to die for (just remember to order it when you order your main course, because they hand create each... More

We went to this small restaurant in Naples and were so pleasantly surprised I just had to write about it. After being sorely disappointed at Michael's (also in Naples) we were a bit apprensive. BUT, every course was beautifully presented and simply delicious. Service was impeccable, ambience romantic, menu offered quite a selection (and all four of us ordered different... More

Celebrated our anniversary dinner recently at Fora's and as with past visits, enjoyed the meal and the atmosphere. Ordered the tasting menu with the wine flights and all was wonderful. The general manager, Elliott, was attentive and charming and overall we had a great time.. Would highly recommend the restaurant.

Visited Fora with friends and we were very impressed with the menu. Unfortunately the host, Elliot, is not as interested in service as the chef is in the food. The 4 course tasting menu with beef ans scallops was a wonderful mix of tastes. Our friend had the lamb and it was also very good. The chicken dish was another... More

Fora’s food is some the best you will find in LB. each mouth watering delicious dish is art for... More

We LOVE this restaurant. Romantic without being tacky. Like eating in a little Parisian neighborhood restaurant. Elliot is a wonderful droll host . Never dissapoints on the menu and the free corkage on Tuesdays is a perk. Highly recommend this wonderful gem of a restaurant.

My husband Peter and I purchased a silent auction item at a fundraiser for the Todd Cancer Center here in Long Beach, CA. One of the items in the basket was a gift certificate to Fora Restaurant. We took our friend with us to celebrate her retirement. Wow, what an amazing evening we had. The wine selection was fantastic. We... More
