    Normally, Flora is a neighborhood restaurant with people eating dinner. Last Saturday night, it had turned into a Techo night club. Very loud music and people standing all around our table while we were trying to eat. We had to wait a long time for a server to show up to get our dinner order. Wait staff could not hear our drink/food orders and some of our food never showed up, mainly because of the noise levels

    We had a 7 o’clock reservation and were not seated until eight we sat at the bar while we waited, and the bartender was complaining about his coworkers. Once we did get seated waiter came quickly but then forgot completely about us. We asked for bread he did not bring it we got our food fish was overcooked. He never came to check in to see how the food was. It was our anniversary and a big disappointment!

    Everything amazing. Love that they have an option for all as well as gluten free pasta and pizza. Kale Caesar perfectly dressed and seasoned. My platter of seafood was excellent - each bite of swordfish, shrimp and scallop was cooked to perfection (usually on platters there’s often something over cooked)- the roasted vegetables set was well thought out and not solely your run of the mill zucchini and carrot mix - but much more… I appreciated the soft caramelizad onions, garlic, peppers, kale, heirloom zucchini and the parsnips added to that. The fresh tangy salsa verde on the seafood, I could tell - was made right then, or at least a couple of hours before. Instead of a mystery puddle of unknown oil and butter mix on the bottom of my plate after I cleaned it, there was obvious olive oil remaining and to me that is a big gold star. The couple that greeted us at the door were joyful and cute and the man (owner?) cracked a funny joke about my name that made me laugh. Waiter was sweet and attentive, bussers and food runner were careful and caring. No one wanted to take my plate before I was finished! I hate to be to excessively gracious, because now Flora might get too busy. These guys are great! We will be back for more.

    Went for happy hour, but no room in the bar and they wouldn't honor HH in the dining room, which seemed inappropriate if no room anywhere in the bar for 4 of us who arrived at the start. But turned out to have a Wine Wed they honored in the dining area so it worked out. Got a pizza and app. Was OK, probably would have ordered more, but the service was awful. Once seated and pushed to order the waiter disappeared, didn't even look in our direction again. Didn't remove plates. Had to actually get up to ask for water refills and another bottle of wine and a second time for our check. The best part was the music. The guy singing and playing guitar was great. Won't hold service against them, based on one visit though. Will give it another try when that musician is back, at least for HH.

    First time here for girl’s night and we enjoyed it! We made it in time for happy hour, which is advertised on yelp 3-6, but actually ended at 6:30 to our happy surprise. From the happy hour menu we ordered the tacos, ceviche, and truffle fries -all delicious!! And from the main menu we tried the bolognese pasta also very yummy. Greg, the bartender was fun, friendly and accommodating to one gal’s particular taste in drinks. Finally, for dessert we had the crème brûlée and bread pudding, also very good. Overall, a nice atmosphere in a convenient location, we will definitely be back!

    We had a fabulous ladies brunch Sunday aug 14. Service was impeccable and the waitress even accommodated my special food needs wonderfully. The place was warm, however, given they had to keep the outdoor door open but as we were wrapping up the air conditioning kicked in a bit more. Could've just been the time we were there. We have been before and def will come back!

    Wait staff were a lot of fun and knowledgeable! They were able to craft substitute items to mitigate a specific food allergy. We had drinks and hors d'oeuvre, both were tasty and good value. Main courses were all very good. Casual pleasant vibes all around.

    People - get with the program! We had breakfast here at 10:30 on Sunday. There were only two tables occupied in the restaurant. ??? The food and service were great and the fact that you could actually make reservations topped off the experience. Don’t pass this one up - great food - excellent service - should be packed!
