Gift card of $20 was not applied to meal. Took 30 minutes to receive bill. Little to no service once a large party came. Would not recommend for a date.

Dined here for tapas, party of 2. Tables are extremely close together, could hear neighboring tables conversations. Food was okay. Ordered a glass of prosecco and the glass was only half full in an already small glass - was definitely a mistake as the previous glass I ordered was full. I will not be returning for dinner or tapas. There are too many other places that are more consistent with better food for less. Ovinte is much better as a hang-out/drinks type of place rather than dining.

Had a night out with a group of girlfriends and we had a great time! We loved the couches; it made it casual, yet it was still elegant. Great happy hour prices.

Food was delicious. We ordered from the tapas menu. Sat outside until it began to rain and the manager came and got us for an inside table. Only negative is very loud

Great place to have a drink or dinner for two. Not such a great place to have a family meal. I loved the "foodieness", but my teenagers were not impressed. Plus the tables are small and not a good fit for a family of four. I would definitely go back with the right folks... girl friends, special date, etc.

Our server was Brittney and although she was held up for the first few minutes after we were seated she more than made up for it. She is personable and hospitable and made a first date all that more enjoyable. Curried Cauliflower and the bacon wrapped dates were great. The lamb meatballs and sauce were very flavorful, however the meatballs themselves were tough and difficult to cut in half with a fork. Use a knife unless you feel daring.

Ovinte is always enjoyable to go to . The food is consistently good and comes to the table relatively quickly. Our waiter was very attentive but it felt like he was new based on a few things he did/didn't do.

Good food and atmosphere, but the service (or kitchen management) was very poor. The appetizer arrived after the entree and two of us got our meal at least 15 minutes after the other two. We kept sharing food with each other so that we all could eat but it was not relaxing. Two dinners were comp'ed as they should have been. Still, the menu was interesting and the food (when we finally got it) was good but small portions. We were dining early so trying this when they are busy might be risky, unless they were just having an off night, in which case, I might go again.

The food was very good and the server was moderately attentive but we had to ask twice to have our prosecco glasses refilled. The acoustics in Ovinte are not great but we were seated quite close to a large party which was very loud - not unruly just loud because of the group's size. Also several children seem to have gotten detached from their party and were running around the indoor and outdoor areas which was inappropriate, and in at least one instance, dangerous (almost collding with a server). I like Ovinte and go their often, but there are a few things they could work on.

Some dishes were completely devoid of flavor, while others were quite good. Ambiance was great, and Katie our server was wonderful. She was always right there when needed but not intrusive.
I haven't been in years, but it just didn't feel as top notch as my previous visit. Could have been an off night.

Went for brunchmost recently and the food was good just really small portions. One egg for eggs Benedict... but they have a great menu. Service was really slow. Drinks took forever. This happens everytime I go here. Also requested an outdoor table in reservation but there was not a table for us outside. Food is good but it is expensive and service isn't great so not sure how many more chances I will give ovinte.
