The food here was so so good! But what really made the experience was our server Jackson! He was attentive, remembered our names and went above and beyond to make it a wonderful Easter brunch!

The food was quite good, but unfortunately, the poor service detracted from the overall experience. Our waitress seemed disinterested and unengaged. And service was very, very slow.

I was impressed with Avelina! The service was outstanding, and the menu had the perfect amount of selection without being overwhelming. Everything was delicious, and the place itself was so cute. It was exactly what I had hoped for and expected.

We shared several small plates, each of which was a creative combination of flavors and textures. The smoked Cobia salad and the maple-glazed pork belly with a savory slaw were particularly good, as was the basil panna cotta for dessert. Attentive, well-timed service made our experience even more enjoyable.

High quality, great tasting small plates with portion sizes large enough to share with 4 people. Service is good, but a little slow. Plan on being there for 2 hours for dinner.

Very nice atmosphere and quiet. It was a Sunday night so noise level was at a minimum and wasn't crowded at all. We received outstanding service. I love the option of being able to sit outside. Great menu.

Really appreciated the portion size that didn't leave me taking leftovers home and feeling heavy. This gave me and my partner an opportunity to sample 2 small bites on the menu before our entree. Flora and Fauna cocktail is lovey! Tartare to fish to pasta cooked perfectly and didn't rely on heavy butter or oils for flavor. Instead, creative purees and accents blended to tasty flavor. We will be back!

Awesome food as always. Only slight negative was that we had 8pm reservations and didn’t get seated until after 8:30pm (in fairness we didn’t arrive until 8:10pm).

Every bite of food (charcuterie and cheese plate, steaks, vegetarian and gluten free mains, and desserts) was quite fabulous: fresh, flavorful, plentiful, interesting, unique. The service was absolutely excellent. The wines were well priced and perfect with the food. We have been here multiple times, and the experience is always the same.

Avelina was a great place for meeting a good friend for lunch. As the place got busier, it got a little harder to hear, but that was my only complaint. The food was great, the service was very good, and I enjoyed my meal.

Our first time at Avelina for a pre-show dinner date. Classy place with great service. We shared 4 small plates and found each one a taste adventure. A great french wine by the glass went well with everything. We will definitely return.

The food is amazing! The octopus was cooked to perfection... and I know because I brought a professional chef to dinner that night and when HE says it's perfect... it's perfect. My scallops were also perfect. Will definately be back & highly recommend this place. Service was excellent too.
