“Very good restaurant, but be careful with the wine they offer you”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

The Terrace of the Radisson hotel in Tbilisi is very nice. It has good views, attentive service and the food is generally good. We went recently and the marinated calamari were tasty, but the beef thai salad was nothing extraordinary because the beef was a little dry. Some other time I went to this restaurant, we had tuna and pasta. The fish was very good, but the pasta was not really the best. Overall, though, the food is quite good. What you really have to watch out for is the wine because I asked for a glass of Tsinandali dry white wine (a typical wine from Teliani, around 7 GEL a glass) and the waitress said they had a white wine on promotion, so I had a glass of this wine (Kisi, 2011). It tasted all right, but nothing special, with no complexity. Well, what was my surprise when I saw the bill: 18 GEL for a glass (without VAT)! I know this is a luxury hotel and, of course, you pay for the atmosphere and the quality, however, this wine is not worth the price, so it is better to stick to something you know and you can see on the menu, than try something they offer you.

“disappointment...”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

We went there for a business lunch. Well probably this is last time I go there.
This visit was really disappointing.
When you pay over 50 GEL (25 EUR) per person without even wine in Tbilisi this must be extraordinarily great food and service.
Only good thing in food was bread and mix of olive oil and balsamico. remaining was bellow the average.
Service - very poor. It seems they fail completely to motivate staff. In huge restaurant only three tables busy and still such a low quality service. Hard to understand...
There are so many places in Tbilisi with delicious food. Can not find one reason why should one go there.

“5 star restaurant at 5 star hotel”
Reviewed March 28, 2012

" Felini" is a magnificient place at Radisson Blu Hotel Iveria in Tbilisi. The restaurant leaves an impression of very clean place. The personnel is freindly and helpfull, which is rare in Georgia.
The selction of food is good. I would recommend their salmon, pizza, and chicken. I've been at Felini several times, and just would like to attract your attention to these dishes. Also the entree at Felini is great, freshly baked bread with oil and winegar makes a difference. The wine selection is O.K. You can mainly choose Georgian or Italian wines.
