    We were seated alongside the kitchen in the ‘hallway’ away from the main dining room. Maybe that is why drinks and service took a while…. Starters were great and we shared them all like tapas. We then ordered individual mains as I’m celiac. One came out, colleague finished his before server came and told my other companion that they didn’t have what he ordered and mine took another 15-29 mins to come out. Lamb was mediocre. The person who received no food asked for a manager, manager did not come by at all on own volition so not great service at all. They took off some money but end of day, we are happy to pay as long as service and food quality are there and AVA missed the park by a mile!

    Stalking Ava’s IG Page, I’ve been wanting to try it for some time! The Brunch menu sounded incredible! A nice selection of food but corners cut here & there. The Pancake station, while good, were just reheated pancakes. It’s an action station. Make them from scratch! Our meal would have been much better but service lacked. To start, our server mentioned the various food around the restaurant. I asked if it was just the stations & she said yes. Halfway through our meal she mentioned we could order other items off menu. That would have been nice to know from the beginning. I ordered the $75 package that included drinks… well at least I thought it included drinks. Apparently it only includes ALCOHOLIC drinks! So that coffee I ordered, I was charged more! As well, my friend ordered 2 Diet Cokes. They each came in a small rocks glass. We laughed how small they were. Laughed even harder when the bill came & he was charged for 2! We asked the server & she said with a bit of arrogance, its a fine dining restaurant & they charge for each. She mentioned she worked at several fine dining restaurants & that’s the norm. Please don’t insult me, that’s not the norm. Even if it was, all we wanted was transparency about pricing. No prices are mentioned on the menu. The only prices listed were for each experience. “Virgin” for $55 that doesn’t include alcohol. Even the name eludes that non-alcoholic beverages were included. If not, then let just us know. The 2nd Tier is “Reserve” for $75 & includes alcohol. Why would you not include non-alcoholic beverages?! The manager we spoke completely agreed & removed them from our bill. Our server also forgot to bring my friend a coffee & forgot 1 of the 2 drinks I ordered. I’ll think twice before going back. If this is fine dining then they need some work.

    I’ve been to this restaurant many times, it’s my favorite in Orlando. The service this evening was sub par… Server failed to explain any of the dishes (we asked him to order whatever he wanted for the table), first cocktail was dropped on the ground, several waters were poured spilling all over the table, we had to keep asking for dirty/empty plates and glasses to be removed. Server basically ignored us. The kicker was ordering three different bottles of wine that cost roughly $500, which they then spilled when serving and mixed when re-pouring since new glasses were not given. I will go back. I’ve had great service before and the food is great, but I will hope for a different server. This was just very disappointing for an almost $2k dinner…..

    I have done Ava a few times now and they are pretty good but if you are interested on doing brunch please book before 12:00 otherwise it’s not worth it, our reservation was at 2:15 we had to wait to get seated till around 2:25 then wait for our server, around 2:50 she told us that all the food will get removed at 3:00 so they can get ready for dinner. She was rushing us to the extreme! Book early and you will have a better experience.

    The menu was very creative and very good preparation. The fish was outstanding and great service. Very glad we could sit outside because the cacophony inside the restaurant was intolerable . The owners should consider getting a sound specialist to determine options to reduce sound almost impossible to hold a conversation. Waitress Swain was exceptional.

    20 mins to get drinks after we sat. Salmon was served 12 minutes before husband’s med-rare filet. Chef apologized with risotto - After I had told waitress I try to avoid dairy as much as possible. They would comp a round of drinks but the unexpected timing made the dinner awkward bc we didn’t know what was going on during the whole meal.

    First time going to this restaurant, the food and drinks were really good for adults and service was great. I called ahead to make sure it was child friendly and they said yes, however, no kids menu and no friendly food for my two kids. Wish it was child friendly, but its not so will not be going back with my family again but maybe for a date night with my husband. Definitely worth my $$$ spent, yes its expensive but great quality food.

    First of all the place is beautifully designed. But the service took way too long and we waited 1/2 hour for our 2 margaritas, cause he forgot he took our order the first time and came back to take it again. Then we ordered the meatballs and yucca/potatoes and that was taking way too long since they brought us another appetizer that we didn’t even order. But the manager said to go ahead and eat it …it was like that all night. We got seated at 7:15 but for 2 margaritas and a few apps we didn’t leave until 9:30. And the food was ok. Nothing special.

    Our waitress was fantastic! No complaints with her. However I ordered the skewers and potatoes millefeuille as my meal and I got the potatoes first and skewers 30 mins later. My waitress was super nice when I requested that I get fresh potatoes with my skewers, however she said the chef said no. Our waitress let me know she would ask her manager and then finally I got a new order but sadly skewers were a little cold by that time. We then ordered dessert however that took another 20 mins from when we ordered. Food overall was 5 stars but service from the kitchen prevents me from giving a glowing 5 star all around. I posted pics of my food on social media and when people ask what I think, I can’t help but mention that even though good is great, the food service would be my main deterrent.

    We went for Sunday brunch buffet at 11 AM. The food was undeniably world class excellent. The restaurant itself is beautiful. We each had a glass of the house wine which was very good. The server was attentive and very knowledgeable about the food and wine. All that said, we felt it was overpriced. $181.00 was our bill. They add on the 18% tip automatically.

    Our experience at AVA was top-notch. The food and cocktails were absolutely incredible, from presentation to taste. We highly recommend the grilled octopus, carpaccio, and the branzino; they were easily the best I’ve ever had. More than that, the restaurant is beautiful, well-staffed, and boasts a great ambience. Our server, Alex, was amazing. She did an incredible job of guiding us through their cocktails, appetizers, and main courses. We thoroughly enjoyed the time she spent investing her expertise into our experience. She was knowledgeable about their dishes, the preparation, and the ingredients in each dish and was prepared to answer any questions we had. And if you’re wondering- the Smoke and Mirrors cocktail is an experience you can’t miss. It was one of the most amazing old- fashioneds we’ve had. We’ll certainly be back!

    The restaurant was packed and loud. Even though the waitress accommodated us in a corner secluded area, it was really loud. They were very busy even on a Wednesday and I just felt that the service was rushed as a result. Food was just ok, I’ve had better ratatouille, rack of lamb and chicken tajine. Overall just a very average and disappointing experience at an extremely overrated and loud restaurant.

    Excellent in every way!! Service was best I’ve had in ages, food unique and delicious (I will dream of the spanakopita and truffle pizza). Make reservation for inside, and far in advance! Definitely a see and be seen crowd! Seriously best overall experience I’ve had in the US in a long time. Of note: 18% gratuity added automatically (of course we added more) and man in gray suit pacing back and forth to check if you’re still at table were the only pitfalls.
