AYZA Wine & Chocolate Bar Ratings and Reviews
There is inside seating and outside seating. Yes, even in winter. If you don’t want to freeze your butt off or get stuck at outside seating (plastic that zips and unzips open) I would recommend you specify your seating location in your reservation and call to confirm. I would have been livid if we were seated outside. Mulled wine was good and not overly sweet, but the housemade hot chocolate wasn’t anything special or worth the price.
I was *so impressed* with the front of house staffperson - she knew I was there for a special occasion (best friend's b-day) and she asked if we were okay waiting a little extra time for our table (we got there early) so that we could have a more quiet corner. They also had a sparkler in the cake and our waitress Sam was a sweetheart who made some great recommendations off the menu. It was a great evening and a wonderful way to treat a dear friend. And I was so full of delicious dark chocolate fondue by the end that I had to roll myself home! (!!!)
The options at Ayla are great, be ready for a cramped restaurant though. The tables are about as small as possible, so when we both had ordered a drink and two options for food, it was nearly impossible to fit it all on the table. The waiting staff came by every now and again to check on us. The clean up staff however, tried to take our food while we were still eating over and over again. Overall, the food was good (nothing special) and the wine options were ok.
The service was impressive. From the moment we walked in & throughout the ball, the waitress was attentive. Our glasses were always full. We ordered the cheese/meat plate & couple is appetizers. The food are of quality & very tasty! It would be hard to accommodate a large crowd but a night out with your gals is fun!
Chocolate bar, but chocolate was not very good and very pricy. Service was not that great either. Pretty tight seating, needed to move the table over everytime the person sitting next to us got up. Food presentation was good, decent selection of wines, but bad selection for happy hour.
Fuimos en fin de año, muy recomendable el menu cerrado! Estubimos super bien y la comida, que pensavamos q seria poca cantodad nos sorprendio gratamente que era una cantidad con la que te qedas bien (yo llena , mi pareja q es chico se qedo bien )
I loved AYZA. It has a beautiful interior and amazing menu full of many different options. During happy hour you can get a glass of wine for $5! It's warm, cozy and perfect for a date night or meet up with one of your friends. It's a bit small, so I don't recommend for large parties. I will definitely be back!
Excellent ! I had a last minute cancellation from one person on my reservation, and they were very understanding about the situation. The waitress was able to get us seating with no hassle! The vibe is really great. I definitely recommend Ayza, would be visiting again.
i happened to stumble upon this little gem by chance a couple weeks ago and took a friend back there for her birthday on thursday and she absolutely loved it, i have to say by far the best chocolate martini i have ever had cant wait to go back and the avocado fries are ridiculous
I made a reservation both on OpenTable and through the website via email a week prior to the date I planned on visiting. I specifically asked for a table closet to the street (which there are at least 4 of). I got confirmation on both reservations. My sister and I arrived at the restaurant 5 minutes prior to 4pm which was our reservation time.
Not only was a table by the street not reserved for us, but they hadn't even looked at our reservation! They told us that we would have to wait 15 minutes for a table that we made a reservation for. That wasn't even the worst part, we were given 4 different excuses by different people! #1 it was our fault for being early and expecting a table to be ready. #2 the hostess wasn't there yet to look at the reservations. #3 we weren't allowed to request an area to sit online and #4 we made the reservation for 4:30 not 4pm. All of which were bogus because the person from the establishment had confirmed my reservation the day after I made it!! I was able to show the email to the people that kept coming up and blaming us which were the most unprofessional, irritating conversations I have had!
We ended up having to wait more than 30 minutes (didn't get seated until 4:35)and the service was terrible. Slow, unattentive, and rude. We had used the code Girls night out to get a complimentary chocolate shot and strawberries (which they could clearly see on the reservation)...we had to ask for the strawberries and then had to ask AGAIN for the chocolate shot. Needless to say I don't recommend this restaurant to anyone and I will not be returning. We didn't even receive an apology from a manager or anything!! There are hundreds of great places in the City who honor a reservation and who had world class service, skip this one.
I love going to Ayza. My favorite drink to order is the strawberry chocolate martini. And my favorite appetizer is the taziki with pita. Unfortunately, this item was taken off the menu. That was disappointing. The service this time was not the best but all in all the ladies in my party enjoyed themselves.
We had a very enjoyable experience at AYZA. Excellent food and great wine list, and the chocolate fondue for dessert was amazing! Nice variety of affordable wines and great small plates for sharing. The guacamole with mango sprinkled on top was great an loved the chicken lollipops. Very crowded table space and it was a cold night so the zipping and unzipping of the plastic protection around patio was distracting. But overall a good spot. I’d go back expecially for pre-theatre dining.
The place has a nice ambiance with the music and lights. I came here twice, for girl's night and an anniversary and was disappointed because I didn't get the complimentary chocolate for girl's night like with the promo for my reservation, nor was my anniversary date table decorated like I had seen in other reviews. Not sure if it's still a thing but sad that it's advertised but no execution for both times I went.
This is a place I come to whenever I'm in town, I love the cheese & wine pairings as well as the food. I have to have my raspberry martini every time I come. I like the start of my meal with the warm spiced wine. When I visit NY again next year, I will be there . Please reinstate the groupon Ayza Wine & Chocolate Bar! I love it!
Nice place, offered complimentary mulled wine as we arrived which was awesome considering the weather. Good food, a little noisy and small but the service was good and the food as well. They were out of avocado which crossed out 2 of our menu selections but the waiter explained as soon as we order and we changed our order...
Although the food was good, we felt like we were being rushed, at least 3 different servers came to clear our plates and we were talking and still eating. The second the plates were cleared someone brought the check and then came back within seconds to see if we were ready. We were the only patrons at the time and felt really rushed and not welcome to stay.
Everything was going just fine. Food was good, drinks were good. Had let the hostess know it was our anniversary. Then they REALLY knocked my socks off. They brought out a sparkling dessert. One mid sized strawberry with a firecracker in it - free of charge! Absolutely thoughtful. Every anniversary will be spent here.
