Octavia is superb in every way. It is pricey, but worth every penny. The menu is very eclectic, and the flavors wonderful. We had a real dining experience_____2 and 1/2 enjoyable hours. All the dishes were described by either our marvelous waiter, Kevin, or a deliverer. Kevin apologized for the delay in our entree, which actually we didn’t mind, and comped us a delectable salad to share. A great evening all around.

Valentine’s menu was unimpressive. My favorite was the salad. The wagyu was chewy. The forbidden rice desert was less than average. It was my first time at Octavia. I need to go try their regular menu that my serious foodie friends laud.

The meat in the main course was tough. Otherwise, everything was great.

We went there excited to try out the tasting menu, which consisted of 4 courses. Our reservation was at 6:00 pm and by 8:00 we still hadn't even received the 3rd course - there were 30 minutes between the time the servers cleared our plates to the time they brought the next course. We looked around and saw a distribution of other customers experiences - some were int he same boat as us, but others were getting their courses more quickly so it was inconsistent. The kitchen looked extremely backed up and by 8:00 diners were lined up around the walls waiting to be seated but the tables were all full due to the delay. We asked for our desserts to be wrapped up but then were told it would be ice cream so we said nevermind, we would wait. Then 20 minutes later our check came with our dessert to go. We didn't feel like dealing with the back and forth so we left. All in all, just a disappointing experience.

Great food, but the day we went on a Sunday night had super slow service. 2hr 45 mins for our meal. Largest gap from last appetizer to main entree was 50 mins.
