    The overall vibe of the restaurant was great. Music wasn’t too loud it was just right. Drinks, apps and main course were awesome!! Alway go for the flambé branzino from the fish menu. Our server deserved major kudos.. made the experience that much better with the recommendations and not being overbearing. Would absolutely visit again with a request for Jason!!!

    Overall we had a good time and the service was FANTASTIC! If you can, ask for Victoria because she was awesome! Great recommendations! It was pretty loud so I definitely wouldnt recommend for anyone looking for a "quiet, intimate" type of date spot. Food was pretty good. We had the haloumi cheese, fried potato sticks ( forgot the actual name of them), the meatballs and thir rainbow olive oil cake. It is pretty pricey so be prepared to drop atleast $100 minimum if your planning on having more than an appetizer and a drink. That being said,, the meatballs are AMAZING, by far my favorite! Both thier old fashioned and the AVA G&T were fantastic as well! Definitely will be back, even if its just for cocktails and appetizers :)

    Wanted to try the newbie in winter park. They did an amazing job on the restaurant. We were seated promptly and our waitress greeted us right away. It was hard to hear her describe the menu since it was so loud. Our appetizers came right out along with our drinks. These were the smallest drinks I have ever had with the largest price! We wanted still water and when we got the bill they up charge us $15.00 for water lesson learned ask for regular water. We wanted fish and when we ordered the waitress came back 5 minutes later saying they were out of dish unless you wanted the &70.00 fishes crazy for so early in the evening. They also don’t tell you they put the tip on so check your bill before adding more of a tip. Not sure if I would go back there are many other places to eat in this city without spending your paycheck on!

    Sat promptly outside on a warm Saturday night with good friends. Had the Onassis Old Fashioned with to start and it was a good pour for $ 16.95. The drink was garnished with a fig which did not add much to the flavor but was unique nonetheless. Had the Keftedes Meatballs $ 20 and Hummus $ 14 for starters, the meatballs were served in a bowl with a flame to keep them hot. Had the Branzino for dinner - one of the best entrées I have ever experienced! Check out the digital images.

    Amazing food. Our server was very nice but the server assistants forgot our water, then our drinks, and never brought the bread for our appetizer, despite multiple requests. For the money you’re spending, service is definitely lacking but food makes up for it.

    Overrated. Virtually every employee encountered had a chip on their shoulder and an arrogance that isn’t warranted. I asked if we could sit inside, and the host literally laughed at me while telling me no. Magically, after purchasing your priciest champagne while a thunder storm started up, a server had found a table inside. I will say that the Greek spreads and meatballs were very good. Overpriced, but very good. I was disappointment with the seafood tower - at least half of the oysters were not properly shucked, leaving us to dig out bits of oyster with our forks. For $125, I shouldn’t be shucking oysters for myself. The truffle pizza was also good. Maybe relax a little on the attitude and we’ll come back and try this again, though I won’t order the underwhelming seafood tower next time.

    Went on Father's day very busy, one of my orders did not come out until everyone else was done eating. The manager came out and took the meal off of our bill. Very friendly, I would recommend but, the portions are very small for the price.

    I had an “okay time”. This is more for a group gathering. Food is okay but presentation and service is great. We did a date night but I couldn’t hear my husband or the waiter much for that matter. I am interested in checking out the brunch experience but I can’t say I would return for an intimate dinner.

    Terrible awful service, food is absolutely not remarkable. The decor and the ambience is great but that’s about it! We have been to amazing restaurants before, way more expensive but this one is definitely not worth the price. If you don’t want to get frustrated and feel like you were robbed… don’t go there.

    Seating four adults at a small couch and 2 chairs and a tiny table was not ideal. If the plates matched the portion size probably wouldn’t have been so bad. The value was not worth the hype. Had heard wonderful things and was hopeful for something outstanding but was disappointed. Will not go back. Great location and service was very good however, not a great menu.

    Overall things were good. We sat on the patio. Our server was friendly, had great menu knowledge and everything came out correctly but was rarely around. Thus made our time there take much longer than necessary. Had he been more available we would have definitely ordered more cocktails and other things. Literally all the tables on the patio came after us and left before us. Other than that I’d give the place another try.

    The service at AVA is impeccable. They have such great anticipatory service that when I placed my handbag on the table a gentleman came over immediately with a side cushion to allow me to place my bag there, allowing room on the table for drinks and food to come. Working in luxury hospitality myself, I look for this and it doesn’t go unnoticed! Our server was so knowledgeable on the menu and recommended the lobster pasta to my friend and it was to DIE FOR! Book your reservations now as I actually had made my reservations two months ago and forgot about them until a hostess called me the day before confirming. Once again another example of the amazing service the team at AVA provides. This is a must try if you are in orlando!

    Cool new restaurant with beautiful decor and great vibe, though a little noisy. Hard to hear other diners. Food was beautifully prepared and presented and service was quite good. Only down side is their ridiculous policy that diners can only bring a maximum of two bottles of wine (and pay a corkage fee, which is ok) regardless of party size! So two people can bring two bottles of wine, but a party of eight can also only bring two bottles of wine. For wine connoisseurs with a large personal collection, this policy is unacceptable and discourages us from going there with more than four people! Hopefully they figure this out and adjust this policy. Other than that limitation, highly recommended.
