We celebrated my husband's birthday and we enjoyed all the dishes we ordered from the cauliflower sformato, mozzarella, fusi istriani and the best sausage w/shaved mushroom was my favorite! Our least favorite was the crispy pasta which was just as the name says - crispy. The cocktail - Death in the Afternoon was so refreshing that I didn't even get tipsy after drinking the whole thing. Ha!
Food was very good to great but the next tables conversation was only poor— unfortunately some tables so close you are committed to joint experiences with folks not of your choice. Also loud and little control over timing of dishes. Ask for a booth or walk in to the bar seating and you will have a better experience. Avoid if you are on salt restriction.
Our experience with Che Fico was wonderful from the very start. I requested adding one more to my existing reservation and Laura was so accommodating and helpful and it all worked out beautifully.
The space is large and inviting and the overall ambiance is inviting and warm . Madison, our main server is knowledgeable about the menu and the wines which helped us to put together a tasting menu which included one of their amazing pizzas, a chopped salad and two pastas, the Bolognese and the Triangoli that we all absolutely loved and we finished the meal with the delicious/rich Bittersweet Chocolate Budino for dessert.
We were all in agreement that each dish we ordered was genuinely excellent! We are all looking forward to returning and experiencing more of their menu.
Nice spot and excellent service! Food is overrated! While burrata and pasta were OK, lasagna (the most expensive dish on the menu) was terrible!!
Fantastic food! Service can be a l
I have dined here once before and thoroughly enjoyed the food. On this occasion the food was very salty, especially the greens and pasta with sunchokes and lemon. The service was great.
I’ve been here 2-3 times and every time, the service has been inconsistent. The actual food servers have been great. I’m talking more about the Somms/Floor Managers or Supervisors. Each time, my experience has been that they are very pretentious and condescending. Like, zero desire to be warm and engaging with the guest. I’ll probably not go back or recommend based on my recent visit.
Over-priced and slow service. We were seated late and the next day I had horrible stomach pains from the greasy food. Not worth the price either.
From the start with Madison and Laura at the welcome desk to the bar experience with Rick, Samantha and Matthew while we wait for our great table, onward to Kyle's great smile and energy helping us make decisions about deliciousness (lamb pasta, Yummy Pizza, Salads with farmer cheese) we just love love being at Che Fico! The food is definitely out of this world and what keeps us coming back, but we know for sure, that every link in the chain matters - and it is apparent at Che Fico that the attention to detail is on all counts the very best.
We always look forward to our next time! See you soon, Riva & David Berelson
The burrata was some of the best I have ever had in my life.
food always good...one guest thought the bolognese pasta was a bit overcooked
Fantastic experience. Pasta was absolutely delicious. We did not care for the suckling pig entree — a bit of a disappointment after it was recommended.
One of the best meals I have had in a long long time, everything was delicious and perfectly timed!
Go in knowing that it is very busy and loud but great service and delicious
Worth to do once to see the scene. Food is way too salty and if you get a bad table you’re literally on top of your neighbor and can’t hear your dining partner. Ambiance and people watching is superb. Better ways to repeatedly spend $200.
Highly over rated , pasta was sooooo salty. Margarita pizza on par with dominos.
It was slow service from the get go. It took almost 30 minutes to receive our cocktails and they started to bring the food. We had to ask them to hold off on the food so that we could enjoy our cocktails a bit. The ambience is lovely with the wood and open kitchen. It is very noisy and difficult to carry on a conversation. The food was hit or miss. We ordered four items and two were excellent and two were lackluster in taste. The wine list by the glass is interesting and we were able to have some nice wines to go with our meal. The price for a meal for two was over $280. For that amount everything should have been first rate. I would neither go back nor recommend.
Most everything was great. The chicken entree was not good. Bland, bad flavor and seemed perpetually undercooked despite cooked more. Wet, squishy texture.
Rushed to order most expensive item
The waiter forgot multiple things we ordered, was not the most friendly, food was good, not amazing. Was super excited since I heard such amazing things, some of the portions were absolutely ridiculous for the price. Would not come back sadly.
Great menu, great room, and generally a great crowd. We were initially seated by a couple having something of a tiff, and asked for a different table. We landed at a booth, which was wonderful. The food was superb, drinks great, and the Sangiovese by the glass was grand. I can't wait to go back.
Our server was passively displeased with us and in a rush for us to leave. Sadly, my date noticed too, and that’s what he’ll remember of our experience there. Also, we were seated in front of the windows in the bar area and it was super loud.
Even with a part of our order getting messed up with a lengthy delay the overall experience was still superb. We’d recommend Che Fico to everyone we know.
Best meal of the year!!
Very nice. Loved the food and they handle food allergies well. Only drawback is that it is loud. And the service could have been more attentive.
Kind of overrated to be honest. The chefs selection of house made meats was a rip off. The pastas were good, not fabulous at all. The place is good but it’s not living up to the hype. And the service was meh especially at this price.
Nous étions venus manger une Pizza mais malheureusement, ce jour là, il n’était pas possible d’en commander !
La burrata et les pâtes au ragoût que nous avons commandé à la place furent une bonne découverte !
La nourriture quoique très bonne reste tout de même tres chère pour des plats simples et traditionnels en Italie.
Le lieu est superbe et le concept original.
Le service et l’accueil sont très professionnels !
Love Che Fico! The food is fantastic and the service is always great. On this visit, they were not serving pizza because of a dough mishap, but our server recommended a ton of great alternatives and we didn’t even miss it. :) He did forget a few items here and there (a side, an order of extra bread and all of the post dinner coffees/teas) but honestly we were deep in conversation and it didn’t make a dent in the night. Will definitely return again and again!
Che Fico's food is phenomenal. Super creative, amazing flavors, delicious ingredients. It is a bit too loud and servers could be a bit more attentive and friendly, but overall great experience.
Service was great, food “slightly” over salted, but still delicious.
Beautiful pastas worth getting everything on the menu!
SERVICE WAS IMPRESSIVE -- ENJOYED A LEISURELY DINNER - NEVER RUSHED ---- GRATED CHEESES WERE EXCEPTIONAL -- RARE TO SEE A WHOLE GRILLED FISH ---THE "ROCK COD" WAS PERFECTLY CHOSEN
Family style but don’t think big family style. Portions are nice but not huge. Fresh and tasty
Excellent food, service, vibe & music! 👍
suppli was not as good as when they served in paper cone. pls bring back ode to judy rodgers pizza!
We'd been wanting to try Che Fico since it opened. Although we're not the demographic (in our 60s, roughly double the age of the others), I think we would have enjoyed ourselves if the waiter didn't come off as aggressively trying to upsell us. He didn't think we ordered enough dishes and was not clear in expressing this. (Most family style restaurants give clear guidance as to how much to order.) Finally we added a pizza...and guess what, we would have been fine without it. We enjoyed most of the dishes except the contorni -- oddly acidic greens, overcooked and not pleasant, what you would imagine you would eat if greens were something your mother made you have (instead of what we both love).
Service is great! Staff is attentive and friendly. Food is always delicious!
Food was outstanding. Really enjoyed waiting so long to get in to try this restaurant.
Think the food will always be new but the basic ingredients are wonderful.
Look forward to many more visits.
Wish noise level was a little more manageable.
