“great all the way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

I am not a big fan of hotel restaurants. I thought that I would give it a try. My friends and I were pleasantly surprised by the great services and the quality of the food. We enjoyed every moment of the dinner. The place does get busy as it moves into dinner hours and later. The food menu was very creative. It also has a good selection on the wine menu.

“A fantastic meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Ai Fiori is surprisingly good for a "hotel restaurant." Located on the second floor of the Setai Hotel, this restaurant is very nicely designed and decorated, with attire called for "business casual." There was everything from jeans to suits and dresses, although this typoe of restaurant does call something more than an old apir of jeans. The staff is very well versed in the menu offerings, and attentive but not intrusive. Help with the extensive wine list is available, with wines from all over the world.
The four course prix fixe for $92 is a great deal. The cassoulete with coco beans cooked in duck fat, pork belly, calamari, and pearl onion was rich and decadent to start. Veal agnolotti and risotto with kale, pancetta and bone marrow were both perfectly seasoned and delicious. For entrees, the steak and swordfish were cooked to perfection.
Overall a wonderful experience!

“One of the cities best restaurants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

This place reminds me of what dining out used to be. Great service, beautiful surroundings and expertly prepared dishes. Comfortable and spacious, you can have a quiet meeting, or intimate affair. The food is delicious and the portion sizes just right so you enjoy several.

“Superb if pretentious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

Great food, though staff were a little 'up themselves'. Don't expect to leave here for less than $150 per head MINIMUM. But if that's ok for you, then enjoy!
