If you want to relax and enjoy a delicious meal, you must dine at Flora's. Yes, the serve can be slow, but you are in the south and that is probably why you came to Hilton Head, to relax and not be hurried. I had a house salad and my wife the cesaer followed by pan seared grouper. We saved room for dessert because Flora makes all her own. Wish she offered a dessert sampler. Tiramisu is the best. If you are from NJ, tell them. Look through the guest book to see if your friends or neigbors have been to Flora's too. We plan to eat here again with our next trip to Hilton Head.

The old saying that you can please some of the people some of the time, but not all of the people all of the time can be applied to the rude comments that were recently posted.
We vacation in Hilton Head each year and a few years ago we found Flora's. It is a family owned and run restaurant. From the first visit, we were made to feel welcome. The food is excellent and Flora's desserts rival the best chefs anywhere. I could go on and on, but I feel it important to address the rude and unfair comments.
First of all, we are not "regulars," and yet we are always treated as if we are. All of the servers are attentive to each table including visits from Flora. The decor being reminiscent of a Chinese restaurant is so laughable, makes us wonder where these people usually dine. We live close to NYC and would be thrilled if there was only a 10 minute wait and we were given a heads up about any delays in service. Being on vacation means relaxing and enjoying with your family. Give Flora's another try and be sure to stay for dessert.

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.

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.

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!!
