OpenTable conveniently left out that this is located in a hotel. There was no one else in here on a Saturday night and it just felt really weird to be honest. We ended up getting one drink and leaving. Would not recommend at all unless you’re staying in that hotel and have no other options.

The service was literally trash. I really wish i could put 0 stars for everything. We arrived for our 8:30 pm reservation before 8:30 pm, and yet we didn’t leave the restaurant until 10:30 pm! We ordered all of our food when we first got to the restaurant so the fact it took that long was very annoying. The waiter let us know at 9:30 when we first complained at the wait that he had JUST put our main course food in. Needless to say we were very displeased with the service and the disregard of our concerns.

My Daughters birthday, in Brooklyn during a pandemic.
The owner served us and she could not have been more sweet and attentive.
Food was outstanding and the prices were very reasonable.
We will definitely go again.

We didn’t realize it was a restaurant in a hotel or we would not have gone there. ( we wanted to experience a hip Brooklyn eatery)Luckily the food was pretty good and the wine list was decent.

There were only two parties for lunch, us and another couple. Maybe because it’s in a hotel, it’s more of a dinner spot.

Felt obligated to leave this review because exceptional experience is important and should be reviewed. Superb traditional Italian restaurant. The baked clams were an outstanding appetizer and the homemade papperdelle with the porcini sauce was out of this world. My friend had the pollo mt etna and i couldn’t resist without trying. Compliments to the chef. Service was good. Our table had two servers who were attentive. Very precise with the menu suggesting those delicious entrees. Im looking forward to try some other interesting choices listed on the menu.

Sub par Hotel Chain kitchen posing as an Italian restaurant. Service was average. Went there because it was close to the Alamo Draft House on a cold rainy evening. I would walk much further in a blizzard or hurricane before returning.

The food was horribly over priced Sysco fare.

Don’t go.

Absolutely great meal and service at Avere. Incredible dishes and homemade sauces that can go toe to toe with the best Italian joints in the city! Everything they serve here is not only exquisite, but it is exquisitely served. A+++ 5-Stars
Loved it, will be back.

Mostly empty on a Sunday night, but great service worthy of any fine NY restaurant (and in Brooklyn at that!). The food was delicious and beautifully spiced, and reasonably priced for the quality.

I had a great meal at avere. The pizza was excellent and so was the chicken parm. Service was great, it wasn't very busy either so i could actually have a conversation.

I saw this place on Opentable. Is only one or so blocks from my apartment. Needless to say,I was pretty excited to try to it , and it far surpassed my high expectations . You have to walk through the lobby hotel. The space itself is very pretty Oslo very large. Wonderful bar more than 20 chairs ,private erea to have nice conversation. As far the food , we decide to start with the burrata and filet minjo was clearly high quality.Even though place is located in Sheraton Hotel we did receive excellent food and service . Definitely coming back soon.
