FIA IS FANTASTIC! Tonight was our 2nd visit & it was just as outstanding as the last time. Friendly hostess greeted us right away and showed us to our table. The chairs were really comfortable. In no time, our server appeared to take our drink...orders. The 3 of us shared all of the food, starting with killer hot baba ganoush and crispy Brussels sprouts. Meatballs, wedge salad with blue cheese foam, perfectly seared scallops with summer succotash, and charred octopus all were outstanding! Loved our efficient, personable server. Not once did she say “No problem” (pet peeve). Every employee in this hotel that we encountered spoke to us. The chef/owner visited our table! It was a perfect evening.More

The food, ambience and service were all excellent. I could have eaten three of the Octopus appetizers. The Hummus was spectacular too. The Branzino and Salmon were both perfectly cooked and delicious. Our waitress Breannna was excellent and made great recommendations. Even the valet Tony...Tevin was super friendly, treated the car with care and very efficient in getting us in and out of the parking lot. #wewillbebackMore

There are times when you stumble into a restaurant when everything is perfect. Our visit to Fia was that. We were a party of six and when they sat us in the bar area with a curved couch for three of us and three chairs...for the other three, I was dubious. I wandered into the dining room, and all of the tables were taken and the vibe in the bar area was much more alive. Let’s see how this would work. The server arrived. Our initial impression was extremely positive and over the 2.5 hours we were there, she only got better. We ordered drinks, wine (glasses and a bottle) and some water. I ordered a glass of Pinot Grigio, which I thought was OK, nothing special. Then we moved onto the food. For an appetizer we shared the Charred Octopus and the Mussels. The octopus was a single tentacle sitting atop roasted red pepper, olives, and capers. It was almost fork tender, with great flavor and the addition of the Mediterranean vegetables was great. The Mussels were the hit of the night. The were large, meaty, plump, perfectly prepared and unlike most kitchens that just dump them in a bowl, Fia arranged them in a concentric circle on the plate. Visually and culinary perfection. For our entrée we all ordered the Bronzini. The filets were moist and the skin was crisped to perfection. It arrived with some julienned fennel on top. This is where the restaurant has its only failing. The protein is sans anything, no potato, no vegetable, just a lonely protein on a plate. They do have five sides to choose from a la carte. We ordered four of the five. The Crispy Brussels Sprouts were delicious, great flavor and crisped on the exterior. The Heirloom Carrots were a half a dozen orange and a few purple carrots. Make sure you grab one of the purple carrots, they were incredible. Th Grilled Mushrooms included a large bowl of a various species, each with a different flavor, a really great combination. Lastly, we had the Fingerling Potatoes. These were served smashed, and like the other sides, they were delicious. I was curious on who was overseeing the kitchen, there was real talent back there. A little research gave me the answer. The chef’s resume included a stint at Bacchanalia. Overall, the night was near perfection, from the room, to the service to the food. What I thought may have been a fluke during the evening, may turn out to be standard operating procedure. Once word gets out on how good Fia is, it will be impossible to get a reservation.More

Where else in the world is the owner of an incredible boutique hotel, like The Burgess in Atlanta, also a chef in the kitchen of that same hotel's top tier restaurant?! Executive Chef Daniel Porubiansky (of modest Ritz-Carlton Dining Room and Bacchanalia fame) has teamed...up with hotel owner Burges Jokhi, a former chef himself, to create a vibrant, but elegant fine dining experience at this French Bistro meets Mediterranean Grille oasis in the heart of Buckhead. You heard what happens to any paradise, yes? I almost hate to recommend it, for fear of losing it to the masses. I said almost...you really have to check this place out! And by the way, the valet service from Alex, Dickens, and John is as friendly and professional as any I have experienced. I thank them for that!More

We dined at Fia last night and were pleased to find that the restaurant lived up to the many positive reviews it has received. Although it took a while for our server to arrive at our table, once we placed our drink order the pace...of service was fine. Our server, Corinthian, was excellent. She obviously knew the menu well and was very helpful in guiding us as we made our choices. I left the choice of wine in her hands and she selected just the right wine to accompany our meal. While on the subject of service, I should state that everyone we encountered was unfailingly cheerful and helpful. Worthy of special mention, in addition to Corinthian, was the hostess Abby who was a delight, just the kind of person you want making that first impression on your guests. Manager Chet checked on us several times during the evening which we appreciated. He is a very engaging chap with a great sense of humor and we very much enjoyed talking with him. Now the food: We had the Charred Octopus as a starter, the Spatchcock Chicken and the Grilled Branzino as our mains, and shared the crème caramel as dessert. They were all delicious. The octopus was fork tender and the Mediterranean preparation (olive oil, peppers, capers and lemon) was perfectly balanced to complement it. The chicken was roasted to perfection with a nice crisp skin and moist interior. The whole Branzino was outstanding: beautifully presented and expertly prepared. A decadent dessert and excellent coffee were the perfect way to end our evening. Fia is an outstanding addition to the Buckhead dining scene and we look forward to many return visits.More

What a FANTASTIC addition to Buckhead! This was my birthday dinner and it was exceptional! Candice was our server and she was super attentive and personable. We had pre-dinner drinks at Mr.B's and Wes and Neshta were on point. Wes was professional and Neshta had...such a charming glowing smile! We can't wait to return for another SPECTACULAR dining experience!More

To be honest, the level of customer service was outstanding. Although, the taste of dinner was nothing short of amazing, I was disappointed in the portion size of my lunch...
