Artist Sinem Disli invites you to dine under the stars. We are bringing the starlight indoors with the help of 33 handmade iridescent yellow light fixtures, arranged artfully with a gentle slope of the night sky. The yellowish-white color has been declared to be the average color of the universe in 2009, after the scientists had analyzed the light from 200.000 galaxies, formed by stars individually indistinguishable by the naked eye. The artist captured that warm beige shade with yellow LED lights in 6 different sizes, which are then arranged in the shapes of 33 constellations. Blue iridescent bulbs, sprinkled throughout, represent 12 zodiac constellations and 55 golden candle holders complete the p

Hello from Ayza, thank you for your 5 star review
My go to spot for wine in the city. Excited to go post quarantine. Also their chocolate martini’s are the best. A must for dessert. Love this place! Don’t change a thing!
Hello Audri, thank you for your 5 star review. We promise to keep it the same way..
We had such a great experience for our anniversary date! Drinks and dessert was amazing and the server brought out chocolate covered strawberries with a sparkler on the house, which was such a nice touch. We will be back!
Hello Jessica, happy anniversary again. Thank you for your 5 star review
Great food , Great Experience & Great vibes make this place A MUST VISIT!
Hello from Ayza, thank you for the great review:))
Love this place
Hi Beckie, thank you for your 5 star review
Went here for a dinner with coworkers. We opted to just get appetizers which were filling enough. The pandemic protocol was outstanding. The ambiance was beautiful. The noise level just right. Definitely a place I would go again.
Service was nice and quick, everything was spaced out and they follow CDC guidelines. The food was MARVELOUS! Definitely will be returning!
Hi Jalen, We do our best to follow the guidelines. I am glad to see you enjoyed dining with us. Thank you for your 5 star review,
Such a great place! Very quaint and delicious. The chocolate martini s to die for and it comes with one of their signature chocolate truffles. We had the charcuterie board, hot spinach dip and Brie toasts. All were amazing!
Hello from Ayza, Glad to hear you enjoyed dining with us. Hope to see you again..
I will not go back
Hello from Ayza, Thank you for your review. I am sad to see you didnt enjoy dining with us, as we intended for you.. Can you please share your feedback with me. You could reach me at email@example.com. We'd like to make it up to you.
It was our 14th anniversary and Ayza is our go-to spot for everything.
Our server was Samantha, as usual. She always treats us so well. She gave us champagne and dessert to celebrate.
Dining at Ayza for over 10 years, we’ll definitely be back soon.
Hello, Happy anniversary. So happy to host you again. I'll make sure Samantha reads this review. Thank you for your 5 star review..
It has a nice atmosphere. The food and drinks are great. Highly recommended.
Hi Nathalie, Thank you so much for your 5 star review
It was amazing and sexy!
Thank you so much for your 5 star review..
Great experience! We asked to move out seat away form the sidewalk to a more secluded corner and were quickly and kindly accommodated. Just ordered an app but it was the best spinach artichoke dip we’ve had. Cocktails were on point and came out super quickly! Would return!
Thank you so much for your kind review. We would be happy to see you back:))
Loved our time at AYZA. We got great seats, sectioned off by partitions. They have a $12 brunch menu, along with the usual menu. I ordered the Watermelon and Mint salad, which was very good. They do have you go up and place your order but it was fine. The service is attentive and our waitress was lovely. We started with brunch and stayed all through happy hour. They even moved us to a new table with no complaints when a friend came to join, didn’t rush us and kept the drinks coming. AYZA doesn’t disappoint, will keep coming here for the kind service and now outdoor seating.
Also: raspberry chocolate martini. Get it.
Thank you so much for your detailed 5 star review. We love our regulars:))
Went during COVID, overall amazing experience and will definitely go again. I much rather enjoyed my desserts and drinks over my actual dinner.
Great charcuterie and wine! Not super expensive.
Hello Chelsea, Thank you for your kind review. Hope to see you back
It took a long time for the food to come out but it was delicious. During Covid you have to go inside to place your order instead of having a server which wasn’t great but not a dealbreaker.
Hello Ashley, Thank you for your feedback. I am sad to see you didnt enjoy dining with us, as we intended for you.. PLs do let me know if you'd like to come back to Ayza. You could reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org We'd like to make it up to you.
I think that the new rules due to COVID is extremely confusing and they don’t necessarily make it clear. They have it written on a board but nobody else says something to you about it. It looks like a specials board so not one member of my party noticed it - then the waitress said it passive aggressively that it was written. The hostess was very rude and was very quick to rush us off. The food was OK and definitely nothing special. Ive been here a few times but this was by far the worst experience i’ve had here
Hello from Ayza, Thank you for your review and i am sorry to hear about your disappointing experience. Rules are written actually on each table. we placed them along with the table numbers. But regardless , the host who seated you down should have explained the rules to you in person as well. We take the full responsibility and want to make it up to you. Can you please email me at email@example.com so i could extend you a gift card..
It was a great service, clean, kind people I really loved the dark chocolate fondue had a great night
Love everything about this place !
Great ambiance. Food was clean and welled prepared. My girlfriend loved the outdoor seating. Bill was a little over $140, we both had 2 drinks with dinner. Fellas this isnt Applebees you gonna spend at least a Benjamin for dinner.
Food was great we came for desserts and drinks!
It's not rooftop although in my rooftop search that came up. However, the food was great and good service was provided.
Service was great! Chicken tacos a little bit above ok. Chicken and Bit Salad blah! Very very regular.
I went during happy hour and had the incredibly delicious chocolate martini, served with a chunk of superb chocolate. I then had the quinoa salad which was delicious - fresh and so flavorful! I had a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon ($7!) and 3 chocolates for dessert: mango paprika, rose hip pistachio and caramelized! Due to COVID, all seating was outdoors and it was a lovely ambiance. Service was good - we had to order and pay inside, but that wasn’t a problem. Highly recommend.
The restaurant was beautiful, clean, and spaced out due to COVID. I showed up a little but early for my reservation but was sat immediately. The staff was very helpful and the food and drinks were great.
Great restaurant. I love it there. The food is really good. The drinks are amazing. My favorite its the espresso martini. The service was not bad but you have to get up to order and pay. I will definitely go back.
My original review was how disappointed I was.. since then the manager reached out looking for ways to make my experience better. That alone makes me want to give this place a chance again. I totally support small businesses during this time , and appreciate the time and consideration given. Thank you 👍🏻
I'll start off with i love the way the place looked, it was beautiful. The food was great, was way better then i expected cuz i'm super picky. But the service wasn't what i expected it too be, and i get that were going through a situation with Covid but having to go up to order my own food and get my own water for my table was a little disappointing. And not a single person came over to make sure we were doing okay like a typical restaurant would do. It was just a little annoying having to go up over and over again to order things for our table, other then that the food was great and so were the drinks.
Excellent service. Hostess was fantastic!
very pleased with the outdoor dining, it's blocked off compared to others
Nice experience despite COVID restrictions. Great drinks for happy hour. Best Chocolate Martini ever!
The drinks weren’t great. $15 for a small cup seemed crazy, but it’s fine. I more had a problem with a mushroom ravioli being $22 for 4 raviolis. Plus the food was very sweet. Savory things like potatoes and burgers were extremely sweet. I’m sure other people like that, but it wasn’t for me or my husband. Nice decor, nice atmosphere, but the food was too sweet.
Very nice experience. Staff does take care of you.
Great wine and choocolate! Really good selection and cute vibes even in the rain
The outdoor area is nice enough, and quite large. However ordering the food at the window was a bit inconvenient. Servers were attentive and friendly. Food was very sub par - a few items were a standout but for the most part I could get better food at Whole Foods. It was fun and festive but I wouldn’t go again.
