    The food was excellent! I had the shrimp with pasta and pine nuts and my husband had the mahi mahi and both were cooked perfectly. People at another table ordered the pork chop and it was huge! Definitely big enough to share. They mix a mean cocktail too. The service was friendly and attentive, but not intrusive. We go whenever we have a special occasion but decided its too good to not go more often.

    Great as always!! The best steak on special for the weekend!!! Wish we could get steak on the regular menu. However it makes it such a special treat when it’s offered. We’ve had every entree on the menu and never been disappointed. We like the variety and there’s something for everyone. Drinks are top shelf and spot on. Our favorite is their Black Manhattan. ♥️.

    We sat for 90 min and had to ask the server to either box our food to go or cancel our order as we had time limit with babysitter. It was clear they forgot to make our meal as 3 tables around us who were seated after us ate, paid and left before we got our boxed meals to go. No im sorry, no drinks comped, nothing. Will not go back.

    The food and service were GREAT!! However there were cold blasts of air every time the door was opened ( which was frequent). Also the noise level, while not terrible, still made conversation difficult for a couple of members of our party. Please PLEASE won’t someone plan a restaurant for those of us who want a quiet dining experience ?!?!?!!!

    We have been to Avanti multiple times, and each time we have received exceptional service. The food is delicious, drinks are innovative and perfectly mixed, and the restaurant has such a friendly and light vibe. We love it and will keep bringing friends back. It’s also great for date night. We are fortunate to have this gem nearby!

    As a long time patron and fan (since the Tualatin location), this visit was everything we expect from and appreciate about this establishment. Service was, and has always been, superb (a bit of an increasingly rare trait in the restaurant scene these days). Our group of five kicked off the fabulous experience with cocktails — beautifully concocted and presented with premium liquors and mixers. Yum. We added the warm olives and bread service, and our palates were primed for the mains. Lobster tail, (the special) short ribs, pork chop (omg, the stuffing!), risotto — all expertly created, seasoned, and presented, in generous portions, and in a timely manner (especially considering the full house!). The red wine, chosen by our server, perfectly complemented our meals and was very reasonably priced. The ambiance was lovely, and the noise level matched the size of the space without at all compromising our ability to enjoy conversation at our table. We could not have dreamt of a more perfect experience. Thank you, Avanti team! We will be back again soon.

    Definitely get the pork chop. Amazingly tender, juicy, with great smoky flavor. Service was well paced and friendly. A bit noisy and a slight chilly breeze when the doors opened but it was a cold, windy night. Will definitely go back.
