Amazing food! Lobster tail with shrimp and scallops over pasta was spectacular!!! Don’t let the price scare you away, a very large portion and well worth every dollar. The mussels and beet salad appetizers were flavorful and so fresh. Perfect pear martini... one of the best martinis I have ever had.!!! Will definitely return when I am back in Dallas. Wait staff was excellent!

We enjoyed our date night here. Our only problem was that Our drinks (martinis) were undrinkable. There was SO much alcohol in them that they burned to drink.

I decided to take my "Uptown Girl" to Uptown Dallas for a Post-Valentine's romantic dinner. Avanti was my one and only choice for the occasion. It lived up to everything wonderful I had heard about the restaurant. Our waiter, Sr. Martin, took special care of us, and made the night extra special. We were also fortunate enough to enjoy the beautiful sounds from world renowned guitarist Russ Hewitt.
If you're looking for a romantic place to take your date for an exquisite selection of wine and food, then this is the restaurant you've been looking for. Everything about that night was perfect! We will definitely be going back soon.

I went with my girlfriend to celebrate her birthday on Valentine’s Day and my experience was great. It was my first time there and I love it. It’s a great spot with live music and the food was delicious. The staff was very attentive and nice. It’s worth the price. We will be going there again

Avanti is one of our favorite "go-to" restaurants. The food is delicious, staff is so very friendly, it's dark, cozy & romantic, and they usually have a live guitarist playing soft beautiful music.

Service and good was OK, place was actually loud due to winter Olympic Games on TV and yelling at bar. Had trouble hearing my spouse across the table. Had a special request to write I Love You More! On desert plate but it didn't get done.........kind of messed up the ending of our anniversary date. Left $140 out of pocket for a night I won't get back
