Well, lets just say that we were looking forward to a night of celebrations and good food. It was my husband's 50th. When we arrived at the restaurant the doors were locked and the restaurant was closed. There was no one in sight. How did you- Open Table not know. We received confirmation emails and everything in between. Now you are sending me this review and this is very ironic. So please in the future check to make sure the restaurant is still open and running.

It was not a good experience at all if the restaurant is closed then you should not allow individuals to book reservations. Fix the website next time

Do not be fooled. This restaurant has closed down. Not sure why OpenTable is still allowing reservations here

We thought the food and service was excellent, but the room where we were seated was entirely too dark and the music was too loud.

Great staff. Good quality food. Good wine list.
Just didn't tell me upfront that the patio was booked for a private while I specifically asked for a table there in my reservation.

Aventine & the staff never fail to amaze me. I love exploring new restaurants but this one keeps me coming back & on my top 3 favorite places.

It's a beautiful space and the food was good but the music was spun by a DJ and way too loud to converse over dinner. It got so loud we had to cut our dinner short and ask for the check before dessert. It's unclear whether they want to be a club or a restaurant. Too loud for our group of eight to even hear the people sitting across from one another. Won't be coming back here again.

We went to dinner before a show so the restaurant was quieter than when we returned later that night to get our car. That being said, the ambience wasn't too loud later in the evening where you couldn't have a conversation.

The food and drinks were tasty. Ordered the gnocchi, which was cooked perfectly with a meat sauce. The sauce was a nice compliment to the dish and didn't over power the pasta. My wife had the risotto which she said was delicious. We shared the meatball appetizer to start - the meat is mixed with raisons which added a good texture and sweet taste to the savory of the meat.

Certainly would go back next time in Hollywood.

Visiting from NYC and we stumbled on this restaurant. Great food and service.

The only thing better than the food is the ambience. Everything about this place pulls you away from the crazy Hollywood strip and transports you to a culinary oasis. I will undoubtedly be coming back here. Perfect for a group occasion or a simple dinner date.

It's rare that I'll give such an outstanding rating but Aventine as a whole deserves full praise. From the hostess to the table to the service and staff to the food - I have had nothing but good things to write. The restaurant is well set up in swanky decor.

Great food, great service and intimate for a date or when you just want a quiet meal. We've been here a few times and it never disappoints. They want to make you happy. Substitutions are welcome. The bread is amazing. The dinner salad was delicious, but you may want to split it as it is large. I ate the entire salad with no regrets. Wine suggestion was spot on.

I had been meaning to check out Aventine for a number of years and was not disappointed. Comfortable, relaxed locale with very well done food and excellent service. Would go there again in a minute!

The Fettuccine Nero is amazing and ask for a table on the patio.

Beautiful, well thought out decor and menu. Great, attentive service and fantastic food portions and wine selection. This is a hidden gem and does not disappoint.

Loved the ambiance! Staff was friendly and kept checking back in, no pressure as we were so indecisive in the beginning! Loved the whole set up of the place, just lovely outdoor seating and while the restaurant was happening it wasn't crowded or obnoxious. Can be great for a date spot, place to catch up with an old friend, or a pregame spot with friends!
