We really enjoyed our first (of probably many) visits to Averna last night. The owners are seasoned restauranteurs and it shows in every way. The people and the service were first-class. We sat in the bar area and the restaurant side was full so we didn't see the waiter that much early on but one of the partners, the hostess and other workers stepped up quickly and with a smile (the sign of a good owner!). The menu is like an All-Star Team of best menu items. I will have to go back a few times to try a number of other items I wanted to try. What we had was excellent and the place is pricey but they give you an honest portion - we had leftovers! Don't be afraid to go here - I can't imagine anyone being disappointed.

Brought my 7 year old and we both were warmly welcomed and seated immediately. The service and specials were top notch.

The food is top tier. I'll definitely be going back to try some more menu items. We have a seafood pasta and a steak, both cooked perfectly.

Food and service were excellent. Expensive but worth it. I had the sea bass on the waiters recommendation and he was correct. It was delicious. My husband said his filet was the best steak he has ever had.

Such a delicious meal and lovely evening at Averna. Best steak in town, and our appetizers and other meals were also outstanding. Wish he had saved room for dessert. Impeccable service!

We have only been to this restaurant twice and both time far exceeded our expectations...fabulous food and service! Last night we had the special veal chop and wedge salad, both were over the top. We will back as it is our new favorite in Rye.

2nd time dining and once again the service was ridiculously slow. Went at lunch and now at prime time on Saturday. Food is delicious and prepared and served with care. However the staff seems frustrated with each other, instead of apologizing for delays to customers you overhear angry comments made between the staff. I hope they can figure it out soon.

Had a wonderful dinner with my wife.

Big Congrats to Sammy's new endeavors.

We use to go to him when he was in Greenwich, CT because of the excellent service he provided. (A dying art form)

He has brought the same passion for good service and good food to Rye, At Averna's

Worth taking the time to make a visit, you will not be disappointed. Sammy is the best...!

We will be back
