“Just OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2012 via mobile

We tried their early bird menu after reading the reviews here and ran into many of the same issues. We did not have a reservation which clearly was a problem for the hostess even though we were able to be seated immediately. Service was slow and food was exceedingly average. The restaurant itself was run down and reminded us more of a Chinese food decor than Italian. The regulars received a higher level of service and my guess is that many of these reviews must be from them, though i will say their early dining menu is a tremendous value which is why they get 3 stars from me. There are better places to try on the island, we won't be back.

“Great food and service, reasonable prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2012

Flora's is one of our Island favorites - we are local to the Island. The food is always good as is the service and the prices are very reasonable. Flora makes all the desserts on premise and they are wonderful, if you have room after a great meal.

“Unbelieveably Rude!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2012

We walked in the door on a Tuesday evening at 7:30 p.m. and were left standing for 10 minutes before anyone even greeted us. Once someone finally came to the hostess stand without saying hello, thanks of stopping in or anything the hostess states "you'll have to be patient I just sat a table of 17." We were then told that our food would take a long time and it was up to us to stay or not. I was completely shocked by the rudeness. We walked down the plaza to Hugo's Seafood and Steak and had the best meal and service of our entire trip! don't waste your time at Flora's head over to Hugo's!!

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2012

Made reservations for10 at 6:30. We were greated warmly and seated right away. After 10 min. Finally placed drink order. Fifteen min laterdrinks came but one never did arrive and we had to go to bar and order. After 40 min we finally placed order. Another 40 min we got meal. Food was outstanding!!! They even fixed plain spaghetti w/ grilled chicken for child. Deserts were really good too.

Took another40 min to get bill and have waitress pick it up.

Our youngest son graduated from culinary college and has been a restaurant manager for Disney. He was beside himself about the extremly poor service.

Food is great but poor service ruined a nice outing.

“Early Bird Special”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2012

Went there last night, no reservation. Walked in around 5:15 pm. Unbeknownst to us, we walked in on the early bird special......glass of wine (or soda), soup or salad, entree, dessert, for $14.95. The options were great. I had the linguini with meatballs, wife had the chicken. Entree's were delicious, service was great. We will definitely be going back.
