"We loved this guy, I wish I had his name but he was around 40, thinner man, but with great character. He was hilarious, great suggestions, knew the menu well and entertained us as well. My salad had way too much dressing on it and it was somewhat sour (a fish salad of some type). It also had old tasting calamari/octopus so I didn't eat most of it. It is not a good salad and I would recommend to pull it off the menu or revise it to a lighter dressing."

"I've been to Filini several times over the years and service has always been mediocre but the food was fairly good as is the location, so returned. After my last experience where the salad had sand in it (I am guessing it had not be rinsed), the pastas were cold, and the service was, again, mediocre, I will sadly not return."

"Everyone I bring here is pleased with the food and service, and everyone loves the atmosphere. It's chic and comfortable at the same time, results are consistent. I think the only reason it's not packed full all the time is because people forget about it, tucked away in the East loop inside a hotel. It's on my list of favorites in the city now."

"My wife and I dined at the Filini as part of a Valentine's Day weekend. There was nothing that made this place memorable, especially not the food, which seemed very bland. I'm not sure if this is because we didn't order off the Special Menu, but regardless, we were expecting much more for the money spent. I will not be returning here."

"We celebrated my daughter's friend birthday and had a nice evening. Limited menu made it a bit of a challenge, but I asked for bar/pizza menu so that helped. Wait staff went out of their way to make her feel special...hand-signed birthday card with free dessert was incredibly nice and appreciated."

"We went for dinner on a Tuesday at 7PM. The food and service were good but we were probably one table out of 4 in the whole restaurant. Hard to understand why given we felt it was good value! We would go back."

"Great and authentic Italian food, great room, excellent service. The room perhaps is a little corporate but nonetheless beautifully designed."

"My group of friends, all staying at the Radisson Blu Aqua, had a reservation for dinner on a Friday night at 7 pm. Filini is conveniently located in the hotel, and offers a pleasant ambiance and good food. We The restaurant was not nearly full, yet service for our group of 7 was very, very slow, with dinner arriving at the table close to 8:30 pm. The waiter served the table in a piecemeal way, so that some were brought their drinks while others' drinks came much later, or had to be requested again. The monkfish was well prepared and very good. As membership in AAA provided complimentary breakfast, we enjoyed the extensive breakfast bar ($30 without the AAA deal), also very good."

"We allowed almost two hours (5:30-7:15) for dinner. While the wine arrived promptly, our entrees took just under an HOUR to get to the table. Then our orders were mixed up. We each ordered a second glass of wine and on each tab they were priced as one glass and one BOTTLE. All the bills had to be redone and we then had only four minutes to run over to the Harris Theater. No wonder the place was almost empty."

"Our experience at this restaurant started out well with our server very attentive but quickly went downhill. The food was fantastic and really saved this dining experience. The restaurant wasn't that crowded so I don't what the problem was. We had a party of six so the tip was added in. Good thing or his tip would have gone down. Next time I will book somewhere else."
