The Florian is a great spot for a family or group dinner.  They have a good amount of space for large parties so you do not feel crammed inside.  The menu has a wide selection of items from pasta to pizza to amazing appetizers and it is easy to please everyone and get plates to share.

My favorite appetizers include the short rib meatballs and the fried mozzarella bites.  The meat and cheese plates are also great.  The waiter did a good job about telling us how many orders of everything we needed. 

The pizzas at the Florian are very unique and probably my favorite dishes.  If you are a fan of cream of mushroom soup, they have transformed that dish into a pizza that I am still dreaming about.  They also have a whole lobster pizza, which actually is presented with the whole lobster shell on it and the meat of the lobster distributed throughout (great Instagram opportunity). 

The best part about the Florian in my opinion is they come around with a tray of freshly baked cookies for everyone at the end of every meal.  It really ties in the old Italian family theme of this restaurant.  


I came here with a friend and was very disappointed. The outside looks super cool and trendy and is the inside but the food was horrendous and our waiter was very rude. I might come back and try to order something different ( but maybe not) 

I love this place. Went with a couple of friends of mine on a Friday night around 8:30PM. There was a slight wait for a table so we headed over to the bar for a drink. Before we had a chance to order a drink, the maitre'd offered the 3 of us glasses of champagne! So nice! The service and attention to detail here is impeccable. We ordered the braised artichokes (delicious) arugula & endive salad (also delicious), a special meatball and pulled pork pizza (tasted as awesome as it sounds). After our meal was over, the maitre'd came around again and offered us fresh cookies (still warm because they were still on the pan they were baked on!) I also saw him offer other guests cotton candy! Such a cool spot for dinner! Highly recommend and can't wait to go back. 

Francesco is an awesome and creative bartender.  He has consummate attention to detail and loves everyone genuinely.  He is our "go to" guy for cutting edge ingenuity.
