Always a great meal.
The boar stew was amazing!
Always great time- pizza and cocktails are legit. Bartender Wilson is the man! f
Music was too loud. Need more tables for large parties in the dining room .
Amazing food !! Cocktails are DELICIOUS!! Super friendly staff !
Always a great experience at Eva’s!!
Relaxed and fun and always delicious food. Service is also attentive and is knowledgeable about the food and menu.
We arrived at Ava’s 15 minutes before our reservation and were promptly seated. All good. Once seated and before we got water or a specials menu, the hostess abruptly came over and said “you have to leave in 90 minutes, we have another reservation”, which shocked all of us. The open table reservation noted that, but it was completely not polite. The ambiance was very nice and beer selection decent. We ordered and surprisingly the food came out in about 5 minutes. The two pizzas were very disappointing and the spicy chicken sandwich tasted below fast food quality. It was like all the food was already made and just flash heated in the brick oven. The pizzas crust was all burnt and the chicken sandwich was burnt and very dry. The worst was our server Ian who could never be found. When he actually talked to us his response was always the same, “no”. Whether it was to get a side of honey or ranch, the answer was always “I have nothing for you”. The service really ruined the evening, not welcoming at all. First and last time going to Ava’s, extremely disappointing!
Absolutely delicious!!! Mixologist is beyond, highly recommend
Very welcoming old world tavern atmosphere. You won't find a better wood fired pizza. A smart, focused number of food offerings on the menu and the selection of bourbon, tequila, etc. was outstanding. Skilled mixologists. The bartender's choice option was fun for the adventurous. Choose a spirit, shaken or stirred, rocks or up, and flavor profile and a surprise drink arrives at your table. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable and had a passion for the food and drink being offered.
Everything was delicious, waiter very attentive and knowledgeable
Always a great time.
Really great find. Excellent cocktails, beer, and spirits lists, and every food item we ordered was interesting and delicious. Servers were friendly and attentive, and the bar/restaurant had a trendy, but welcoming feel to it. Will definitely be back.
Great pizza with inventive and tasty cocktails snd a wide array of other food choices. Wish we lived closer we would be weekly visitors.
Have been to Ava’s several times and brought guests who were “first timers”. They loved it as much as we do. Great food and great service with a New York bar vibe. Will definitely return!
Great place! The service was great and pizza was amazing!!
Great place for drinks and food. Stick to the pizzas. Sharing plates are hit or miss.
The menu felt limited but everything we ordered was delicious! Loved the grilled romaine, got the speck pizza and pesto, both crispy and cheesy and delicious. Lentil soup was A-mazing. Seafood pasta was perfectly al dente. Cocktails were creative and tasty. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable, we were seated in the back room so it was very quiet.
Ava’s is our spot. We love it so much as a family or a date night. Cozy vibes, excellent drink menu, and the food is spectacular.
The food is outstanding and the service is very good. It is a little noisy if you are trying to have a conversation and it is a little pricy. That being said I've there 3 times in the last 6 weeks so I guess it must be pretty good. Pizza is amazing!!
So consistently awesome, amazing food and even better staff. Drinks were A+ and an amazing draught beer selection. Can't wait to return.
Usually great but not tonight. Pros: pizza was really good as usual.
Cons: Carbonara was really salty. The bacon has enough salt in it but they added a ton which made it unpleasant. Service wasn’t great. It seemed you had 1 person only working this big room so he is going to be moving quickly and things will be missed or delayed. Ordered the first beer to be told 15 min later they were having issues with it. Just picked a random second beer that took another 15 min to get. My refill of the beer was quick. Pizza took a while to get because my got sent to the wrong table but nothing was said to me and I did notice it was sent to the wrong table because the people at the table were confused. Watching other tables get pizza and it was quick for them to get after they ordered but not for me tonight. Quickest part was getting the box and the check which took in total 5 min.
Delicious pizza. The beet salad is fabulous. Extensive beer list and cool cocktails. Very nice service.
Waaay too expensive for pizza and some drinks. Dropped $360 including tip for 4 people. Yikes!!
First time we were there and we loved it!!
Small menu, but really good food. Quality service from the bar. I will be back.
Love this place! The place to go for creative food and cocktails.
As always food from appetizers to pizza were awesome.. wait staff is always friendly and helpful
If you want burnt pizza, place to go
I had been wanting to try Ava's for a while and it didnt disappoint. It definitely is pricey, and the menu is a little limited, but what food they do have is really great. They had some vegan options which was really helpful and a really great cocktail list. Our waiter was awesome so made the dining experience more fun! We did go with someone who was hard of hearing and it was not ideal for him. There was a live band, but overall the space just carries noise.
everything from the food to the cocktails to the service were outstanding. The place has a great vipe. I would have preferred the music to be a little softer so we could talk more easily, but it did not do anything to lessen the outstanding experience. This place is a home run!
The menu is very limited. Asked our waiter Ian for a cup of tea because it was freezing in the restaurant. They didn't have any. Really?
3 Appetizers we got were small. The bar pie was the best item even though the crust was burnt. Only 6 slices in the pie. Only 1 dessert too - Pumpkin bread pudding. My friend doesnt like pumpkin so she was out.
Not worth the money $81.00 with tip and we had only 3 waters.
Sorry won't be back.
Went with two girlfriends/mom friends. It was their first time but I've been there many times. My friends loved the drinks and wine. They couldn't get enough of the fried artichokes, rice balls and clam toast. Great singer in the bar area too!
Great staff, cocktails and pizza!
Server was/acted drunk, but food was amazing!
Great place for Pizza.. staff and service are great
Excellent food. The pizza is pricey for its size but it’s excellent. Service was good too
