Gardens of Avila Restaurant
Chef has got the magic touchThe new chef has got the magic touch with food. I had the "Garden Party' sampler dinner. It was a good choice- one delicious course after another. I didn't know a humble carrot could taste so amazing! You have got to try this place.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ambiance. Great placeGreat ambiance. Great place for that special night with your partner or a date. Very quaint and subdued environment. The staff is very attentive, pleasant and very knowledgeable about the menu. I will definitely visit The Gardens in the near future.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous friendly attentiveFabulous friendly attentive service! Three of us had the halibut and it was dry. The tangerine dessert was outstanding. We love being able to bring a bottle of local wine without a corkage fee!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWOW! This was by far theWOW! This was by far the best meal I have had in this area. The chef makes amazing dishes that are innovative, extremely tasty and fresh from farm to table and with great presentation.
We had incredible service and the food truly was extraordinary. The crab ravioli appetizer and the beet and burrata salad are to die for. And don't miss out on the duck, sirloin and chicken entrees. Our party of 4 could have been the Cheshire Cats with grins from ear to ear. And don't miss out on the deeeeeeeeeelicious tangerine cheesecake...the presentation was over the top.
This is truly a foodie's delight.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA mixed bagExcellent service, excellent quality food ingredients, but uneven cooking quality. The chicken dish was too salty, overcooked and dry, and the sausage beneath is was unappetizingly dry, hard, and crumbly. The sirloin cap was very good, though some contained gristle; it seemed overpriced. Portion size for appetizers was very small, so subtle flavors were not enjoyed. The dessert menu has consistently been too narrow, so those with dairy allergies are left disappointed. Fresh fruit was graciously offered as an alternative, but this is a special restaurant...something special for dessert is expected. For another meal, in the bar, the burger was overcooked...no fries to be had, disappointing housemade soggy chips instead.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMEaster Brunch Experience 2013The restaurant is surrounded in a beautiful garden setting which feeds the visual appetite before setting foot inside. Our waitress, Emily, was great. She had energy and a passion for the food. She made each Easter brunch dish sound sooo good... it was difficult to decide. Food was delicious and properly portioned.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMService was the best I haveService was the best I have experienced in a log time ..refreshing3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you want it to be perfect...We were celebrating a special moment in our relationship and having been to many different local restaurants, I wanted to convey how important this wonderful news meant to me, so Gardens of Avila was the only choice. The drive, the seclusion, the ambiance, the service, the food, was the exact impression I wanted my partner to experience. We had a wonderful time and our waitress happily educated us in gourmet terminology and made recommendations which proved perfect for our occasion. If you want to impress your date, don't go anywhere else.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was wonderful and endedFood was wonderful and ended my night with a proposal and she said yes :)1/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
