The Cuisine of Avanti!

My husband And I came here for a
first visit for Valentines Day Dinner. Although we were a little upset that there was a set menu for that night, it was amazing food. The steak was so tender and delicious. You couldn't tell it was live music unless he stopped playing in the middle of a piece (when someone would give him a tip he would stop and than them). He was a great musician. I went to work the following Monday and told everyone to go there! Thank you for the great night"

Made these reservations because
the establishment boasted world cuisine, but discovered after arriving it was a fixed menu. We asked to see the dinner plan and our server brought a piece of paper over that outlined three courses with no price attached and we didn't ask. The salad was awful, then a steak, fish and potatoes meal that lacked any unique flavor. Finally, a fancy hostess snack in strawberry yogurt. The food was mediocre at best, so imagine my surprise when our bill arrived for $150! Service was poor and the scheduled entertainment left the scene during the first course. Huge disappointment for what was otherwise a great date valentine's day date. Won't visit this place again. Bait and switch seems to be the game."

So I booked a reservation here and
when we got there it was a set menu, which was NOT noted at the time of the reservation. We thought nothing of it and decided to give it a shot (first mistake). After a sub-par appetizer, a tasty filet Mignon, and then a bundt cake dessert that could've come from Target, we received the check to find out that this exceptionally lacking dinner had the lovely price point of $60 a head. If it was $60 total, I might have been okay with its mediocrity, but at $130 for a couple it was utterly appalling. Lessons learned : don't stay when they drop a set menu on you & always ask how much it will cost."

Mediocre service and the food
tasted as if it was heated in a microwave and then brought out. Not to mention all of it could easily be replicated. I and many of the couples around me did not know until the server told us that the menu was set. Mind you I had a reservation and this was for valentines day. It was very apparent that they had issues with not telling people. IN fact one customer voiced it very loudly stating he was not happy with the fact that he was not told about the fixed menu until he was seated. He also stated that he had reservations just as I did. I expect much more than mediocre service at a place with a fixed menu and very expensive at that. Mediocre food, mediocre service, and immature servers."

Avante is great for Valentine's
Day! The pre-fixed menu is always good (filet & salmon), and they usually have live music - lovely! It is worth every penny which is $60 per meal. Liquor costs extra but is reasonably priced. Had to mark down food from outstanding to very good, because the dessert (chocolate cake) was a little dry. Also, there was no bread served. All other food was outstanding, and the plating was beautiful. Ambience was lovely with black tables and red cloth napkins. Our waiter accommodated us by substituting ice cream for the cake on 1 of our desserts. If you're looking for a special Valentine meal, this restaurant is definitely for you! We plan to come back every year. A Valentine winner!"

Note the menu is not the menu that
is on open table or online. However 4 of us had a very good meal. Perfectly cooked and seasoned."

I had only been to this restaurant
previously for drinks at the bar & really enjoyed the ambience! I decided to take my family here for my grandmother's 92nd birthday! The food was wonderful; appetizers including sauted mushrooms served covered in Brie with toastettes, fried calamari & amazing caesar salads were all very tasty & beautiful presentation! Entrees were good, but not fabulous. The spaghetti and meatballs were awesome, pizzas were split, one was very fair & the other was great! They had a great dessert selection, but accomodated us with the cake we brought especially for my grandma! They all sang to her & it was a great evening! I will definitely recommend this place as well as return!"

Food was very good, however the
wait was lengthy, which if you don't have additional plans is/was fine for us. Music was a great addition to the dining."

Martinis were strong and tasty.
Food was well prepared and scrumptious. We came on a quiet night and dinner service was outstanding and the ambience was romantic. Plan on going back on a Friday to partake of the live music festive atmosphere."

I had the steak and it was just
scrumptious. We all loved our food except for the child's pizza but what do you expect on that. They did mess up our appetizers and soups but it was NYE. They where courteous and apologized a lot for it."

It appears they were VERY short
handed, and the service was extremely poor to almost non-existent. Reservation at 7:30, seated at 7:55. No water until 7:20. No bread at all. Finally got our food, which was actually great, but didn't get the wine we ordered, and then had to remind them to take it off the bill. Pretty exhausting experience overall, and not at all how we wanted to spend my birthday, and the holiday! By the time we left we almost felt lucky that we got what we did!!"

This was our first visit. Enjoyed
the atmosphere and the "mood music". The Caesar Salad and the Creme Brulee were both exceptional, and I enjoyed them very much. The main courses were 'good' but nothing to write home about. Would come back for the music, the Caesar Salad, Brulee and Coffee."

Avanti is a gem in the north
Oklahoma City area. Perfect for a romantic get away dinner or a business meeting. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone."

service as good as it gets !"

Small, quiet little place. The
food is pretty good, maybe a bit pricey. I'd probably go back."

Overall OK. Great food. You dont
get a lot for the price of the food. Service wasnt that great. Staff are unfriendly and have absolutely no smiles. Overall, food was good but severly overpriced."

This was my first time to dine at
Avanti. I was very pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to get a reservation for a table near the entertainment. My visit was more for meeting the jazz guitarist Maurice Johnson, but turned out the food and service was very good. I had lasagna and caesar salad. Both of these were delicious, and presentation of the entree was beautiful. The hot food arrived hot and the cold food arrived cold, and I enjoyed a nice visit with my date. Our table had a very good view of the beautiful bar area, and we enjoyed a bit of an impromptu show put on by a woman at the bar who appeared to have imbibed too much. We hoped she was okay, but she was not an unpleasant distraction - more of an amusement. The music was great."

While not a buffet lover, Avanti
has it down to a science. Reservations make the provervial line tolerable. The choices aren't "endless", yet varied, and the quality is excellent. What's important is the warm is "warm" and the chilled is "chilled". Their ratio of servers to tables is spot-on! Having three different stations for main courses, desserts and the Bloody Mary Bar for garnishes makes the flow of patrons less crowded in a limited space. Whether you want a Breakfast or Lunch meal - Avanti gives you that choice. Wonderful Mother's Day and other special occasion Brunch - Avanti is our choice. (aside note: the coffee is excellent)"

We have been here five times; the
first three times the food and service was awesome. However, the last two times both the service and food was not what we had anticipated. Requested a quiet place as my uncle is hard of hearing and had to ask to turn the music down. We were all freezing with the AC blowing down on us and the food. Requested the AC be adjusted, also. The waitress was extremely accommodating; however, slow with serving bread and water. When entertaining or just a quiet evening, I wouldn't recommend Avanti's. Loved it 3 out of 5 times. But won't go again."

This is a very nice resturant to
take a guest to or to share with a special person! The decor is attractive and the food quality is very good. They have a lovely separte bar area visible from the dining room and a room that can be curtained off for a party wishing a degree of privacy. They often have alive music and for pleasant weather they have an outdoor patio. Do yourself a favor and try this inique dining spot just South of Quail mall!"
