A friend of my who is a legit foodie took us to this hidden gem in the heart of Buckhead at the Burgess Hotel. Everyone had a great meal. I ordered tomato basil soup, mushroom risotto and bananas foster. All were spectacular. When I go...back I will be hard pressed not to order the same again. (If you can get Abby as your waitress). Do not come here if you plan to rush through your meal.More

It was our first time here and all we can say is compliments to the chef!!!!!!!!! The service, drinks, dessert and food were absolutely AMAZING!!!!!! You can taste the passion and love Chef Burgess (the Chef and hotel owner,) puts into the food. Prior to...our dinner experience here, we had an absolute favorite restaurant in town (and my husband and I travel the country, but THIS is now our favorite place!! We will absolutely come back...and stay at the hotel for the full experience. Thank you Mr. Burgess!!! 5 stars!More

We were guests at The Burgess Hotel and Fia was a wonderful addition to the Hotel. It allowed us to have a Fine Dining Experience without ever leaving the property. Our reservations were late but the staff didn’t seem to mind. Everyone was very courteous....Everyone at the table enjoyed their food. My scallops were cooked perfectly.More

I had an amazing dining experience. The decor, ambiance, service and food make a superb combination. This restaurant is what Atlanta has been lacking. My new go-to restaurant is Fia.

Just enjoyed an amazing date night at Fia. Located in The Burgess Hotel in Atlanta, Fia is a hidden gem. The lamb chops were perhaps the best I've ever tasted. They were favorable and juicy. My only complaint would be the portion size, I could...have easily eaten more! The Charred Octopus was just as others have described. Certainly a unique and delicious treat. Be sure to try the Crepe Suzette for dessert. Light, warm, and just the right amount of sweetness. A perfect ending for a great dinner. The atmosphere is perfect for a date or any type of conversational dinner.More

Five of us dined together at Fia, and five of us came away satisfied. We were seated near the open kitchen which was an added treat. I always enjoy watching the goings on! And Fia’s kitchen and staff are organized and efficient. Each one of...us thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience here. Our charred octopus and pork belly appetizers were delicious - beautifully plated on beautiful plates with delicate flowers painted on them. My salmon was quite possibly the best salmon I’ve ever had. It had a delicate yet rich flavor. My husband’s whole branzino was a sight to behold! It was good enough that he said he would order it again. The Sancerre wine we had was equally good. I’d say everything about this meal - the food, the drinks, the setting, the service - was exceptionally good. All of us give Fia a hearty thumbs up!More

Amazing world class gourmet food served in a relaxing and engaging atmoshpere. Brianna was incredibly knowledgeable concerning the menu, its preparation and flavor profile. It completely blew us away as we were not expecting such an experience in a hotel restaurant. I would visit simply...to eat at Fia again.More

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
