I understand that things have changed because of Covid. Waiters no longer take your order, you have to put your order in with the hostess. Very strange. It's like getting take out and eating it there.

I’ve been coming to Ayza for years and never once have been disappointed. The atmosphere, the food, the location and most importantly the staff is what keeps me coming back. I truly appreciate the management here and how things are ran.

I was disappointed in the approach to being safe during COVID. Having the customer go up to the front to order makes no sense because people are congregating and getting up from their table unnecessarily. Also, it made no sense to have customers get up to get water and have everyone touch the same cooler to fill the water cup - again, adding more risk. If the waiters are able to come over to the table to bring food, I’m not sure why they can’t take the order and bring water.

First of all there are no servers. You scan the menu (which is fine considering Covid) however you have to go yourself to the greeting booth and place the order there. The server does not come to your table only to bring food. Ridiculous considering it’s all pretty much outdoor dining.

The food was not good at all. I ordered a burger well done and it was red/pink inside. The artichoke dip was awful and the chips that came with it were stale.

Overall terrible dinning and service and will not visit again. Too many great restaurants in the area to visit here again.

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.

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.

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.

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 zaf@ayzanyc.comm so i could extend you a gift card..

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.

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.
