Recently, my wife and I left our home in upstate NY for a California trek. We rented a car in LA, with an eye toward driving RT 1 all the way up the coast to San Francisco. Sadly, there are parts of RT 1 that have suffered severe damage and a large chunk is closed from Ragged Point to south... More

We decided to try some place new, and went to Cafe Fiore for happy hour. The menu was limited, and the food average.

No wonder it is popular. Looks like what you hoped for. An inviting bar, surrounded by different seating situations, inside and outside. The music was really really good and added a lot to the ambiance, which looked and felt just right already. Interesting menu with many options. Service was great. Would keep it high on anyone's list.

It was beautiful great music environment. The salads were delicious I loved it. I would go again and take a group of friends or family to dine out. There is always a live band in the restaurant and good music.

It is nice and clean. I was expecting more variety on coffees, but menu is still ok. Good pasta dishes. and even alcoholic drinks. Atmosphere is good too.

Visited Cafe Fiore for the first time with three of my girlfriends for Happy Hour (M~F 3-6pm/Sat~Sun 3-5pm) and this place is FABULOUS!! The Happy Hour drink menu is extensive and includes the most delectable $4 wines along with the most unique cocktails I've seen (e.g. Pineapple-Basil Martini, Mixed Berry Mango Mule, Cucumber-Jalapeno Mojito)! The variety of appetizers and starter... More

Had another great occasion at Cafe Fiore. From cocktails to dessert, I can count on great service and a superb meal. That's why I'm happy to drive an hour each way for the privilege. The live band featured some amazing musicians playing complex arrangements flawlessly. Can't wait for my next opportunity.

My husband and I were very excited to try this restaurant as it always seems busy, which is a good sign of good food. And it was very good! We shared the large appetizer (I do not remember the Italian name for it) but it had two crab cakes on a bed of cabbage slaw salad, two very large prawns... More

We just got into town and called to see about the wait time. No issue at 8pm. We walked in and they had a high top table or the kitchen counter. Let me tell you the kitchen counter was the best. The cooks enjoyed showing off a little bit. The food was excellent, we had a mahgerita pizza and a... More
