Wife’s Birthday! The waitress treated us well and also provided us with a birthday treat for desert!
First time dining here and won't be the last. We had a variety of dishes to share from appetizers, small plates to entrees. Definitely trying the paella next time. Favorites were meat and cheese charcuterie board (which was pricier than menu stated ), cauliflower, the potatoes with egg, shrimp in garlic chili oil with bread, brussel sprouts and the ham croquettes to name a few.
A few mixed reviews on the lamb meatballs, which needed a touch of salt or more seasoning, but friends liked the sauce. Bacon wrapped in chicken was okay.
Cocktail menu was fabulous! Great atmosphere!
Using Opentable for our reservations was very efficient! Personal confirmation was timely. Our evening was enjoyable all around! Thanks
Great food and service as always!
I enjoy the food tremendously. The space is attractive, a mixture of hardwood floors and exposed brick. My one disappointment is the sound level. The hard surfaces bounce and amplify sound, making conversations more difficult.
Had a delicious brunch here while 120,000 people froze at the Umich-Ohio football game. I love the Tapas approach to brunch. I hope they continue brunches next year! Finished off with a passion fruit flan-yum!
Our server was very good too!
Price is on the higher side but the food was pretty good. 4/5.
Second time in both for Birthdays!
Service & Food Amazing
Great wine list
Very good night. Will come back again to try more of the menu
Absolutely wonderful experience! Amazing food and great service!
My friend and I had dinner at Aventura for my birthday. We had never had food like this before, and our waitress explained everything very well. The food was absolutely delicious, and very well presented. This is a great restaurant for a intimate dinner, or even with a group of friends. The food is designed to share with each other, so order a bottle of wine from their large list and plan for a fun 2 hours.
Best paella marisco we have ever eaten!
Dessert was less than mediocre.
Lovely service. Noise level & music were unpleasant. Still, we would return for the paella marisco & the attentive service.
We gathered for a friend's birthday brunch. We enjoyed a dish and drink on Sunday. Thank you for the birthday dessert, which made our gathering special.
At my Sunday brunch excursion every single thing was on point!
We loved the new menu items we tried! Great service as always.
It’s a bit overpriced but a fun option overall. Interesting craft cocktails & a good selection of Spanish wines.
Service was cold and unresponsive. Ordered draft beer that truly had something wrong with it (I have my own for 4 years and know what IPAs taste like, others at table confirmed it was off; I suspect dirty lines), no apology when sent back, not taken off bill. Several other beers on menu not available. Food has moved away from Spain in terms of recipe (my wife is native Spanish, we visit Spain every year), more traditional tapas poorly prepared (gambas al aljillo overcooked with too much sherry, could go on). Prices have jumped since last visit.
All in all it was a disappointing meal, would not recommend, we will not be back.
We were with friends from France/Spain and from Argentina. They loved it! That makes it authentic enough for me. Great service. No problems. Will go again soon.
It is a pleasure to be able to sample many interesting items during a meal and not be over full. One can do that at Aventura. Many choices of dishes but the ones we tried were all pretty successful and they were quite distinct, for example the Iberico jambon had such nice additions-3 kinds of olives, garlic, only jam, tomato jam, marcona almonds, etc. Wow! The dessert we chose was only okay ; the coffee was bitter-tasted old but we will go back soon for the food.
Excellent food...best paella I have had and smaller plates all interesting and delicious. Great ambiance in the restaurant and our server was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Hi grades all around. One of the top 2 or 3 restaurants in Ann Arbor.
It was a great lunch. We really enjoyed the sangria.
Food was very authentic and delicious.
Wonderful atmosphere and food! Always a winner! Make your reservations early.
Went here for brunch with my family for parent's weekend. The food was amazing! We split the french toast and it was to die for. Tasted like a churro. I had one of the omelettes for my meal and it filled me up and tasted great. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone in Ann Arbor.
Really great place. Was there on a football game weekend so there is always a balance between bustling and overcrowded but they handled quite well.
Loved the ambiance, the tapas, and the cocktails! Fun place to go.
We loved everything we ate. Our waitress was very helpful and made great suggestions. Highly recommend Aventura!
Very good food. Great decor. Too loud if you want a conversation
Paella was on the salty side. Cocktails and appetizers were excellent. Service was attentive but unobtrusive.
Excellent food and service - Anya had some great ideas and suggestions. We loved everything we ate (including a meat/cheese board, gazpacho, shrimp, chicken kebabs, olives, lamb meatballs). The brussel sprouts and hummus we will amazing.
Food was amazing! We had brunch there. The service unfortunately the worst I ever had. Brunch took 2.5 hours because the waiter was so slow. The restaurant wasn't even busy. We had to leave the table to order drinks at the bar because the waiter didn't tend to the table for 20 mins after we had been sat.
We dined on a Saturday night, and the restaurant was super busy. Glad we made a reservation! The food was delicious, and the menu had lots of great choices. Our waitress was very attentive, even though she was very busy. We will be back for sure!
Phenomenal Spanish food and great service. The atmosphere is intimate and welcoming.
We were in Ann Arbor for a Michigan game and were so happy to find this place. We brought along close friends and our teenage daughters, all of whom have traveled with us to Spain. Everyone had a wonderful time - one of the best meals I've had in a while.
Amazing food, amazing service. Went for our anniversary and was surprised with complimentary flutes of champagne for each of us. Wonderful place for any occasion.
I love Spanish food and its hard to find a good Medeterriean Restaurant in the states that is authenticate. Having traveled to Spain extensively in the past two decades, my expereince in Aventura activated many memories, smells and tastes of the various wonderful foods of Spain that I love and savor. Two thumbs up! A++ I only wish it was closer as I live in Boston! But, if my child is accepted and attends University of Michigan, this will be a stop for each time we come visit him!
The owner of Aventura owns several restaurants and I've not received good service throughout at any of them. This time, tapas items we never ordered were repeatedly presented to us by a questioning waiter, and one of our items never arrived at our table. The food was decent but not spectacular, though the cocktails were terrific. The noise level, though, was beyond irritating. My husband and I couldn't hear our server or each other, and we were there on a Tuesday night. I'd recommend to friends who wanted to go for a drink and a meat and cheese place, but don't expect intimate, romantic interactions. You'll be shouting at each other, and at the waiter who can't hear you when you tell him the calamari doesn't belong to you.
Great food. Of course the price is a little high but most tapas places are.
I can always count on aventura for a memorable dining experience and exceptional service. Great sangria and everything I’ve sampled has tasted wonderful. Definitely a pricey evening but worth it for a special occasion. Pleas bring back the caramel sauce for the churros!
The food is always great. The specials of the day are always worth a try. Had a great time for my daughters birthday!
Loved Aventura - Happy Hour was a good value, and the discounted Tapas were a plus! Great food, great service - we will be back to try other plates!
Wonderful food. Good for sharing Great service Monday's half price Sangria
