Each year many corporations choose Ayza as a venue for holiday parties, product launches, meetings and more.

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.

We went for Sunday brunch. The food was so fresh and delicious. The cocktails were refreshing and delicious. You order online and they bring the food out. We had chocolate fondue for dinner and it was really good. The inside is cool it’s designed to look like stars. We are outside on the patio which was nice and private feeling.

Great drinks and food. With the ordering process our appetizers and main courses all arrived around the same time rushing us on some of the courses because of table logistics. Recommend with the current process order in flights.

Also the description of the items on the online menu was limited so you need to ask the server. The service is friendly and accommodating, the reason I would not rate the service higher is because of the food all being delivered at the same time. Great place and I would recommend.

Great food & drinks. Everything was fresh & delicious. Very strange experience dining - no indoor dining, it was a bit hot out. They make you order on your phone for the tab & pay as well. There's not much service since nobody interacts with you except to drop off the food at your table. We still tipped but weren't really sure how they can expect a lot if there's not much service at all.

The cheese board, hamburger, tacos, chocolate fondue, and lava cake with caramel ice creem was great! The tuna tartare wasn't something I'd order again. The hot food came out quite a bit before the cold food. We didn't get our drinks until several minutes after all our food was delivered. Overall the experience and price didn't line up for us.

Chocolate martini was amazing. Decor adorable and interesting. S’mores plate perfect. A bit pricey for marshmallows strawberries and bananas with a bowl of melted chocolate. Outdoor seating was a bit warm for comfort and flys were bothering. Not enough breeze in the street car. Staff was excellent! Could have used a fan or more open windows for air flow I guess. Must be better in late August or September. We will be back!

We went to Ayza four years ago and I’ve been dreaming about the steak I had since then. We drove through NYC on our way to Boston just to enjoy Ayza again. They did not disappoint! Their steak is fabulous and their wine and chocolate flights are the things dreams are made of. 10/10 recommend.

The food was amazing and so were the drinks. However, they had an online ordering system which made the experience very impersonal. Even to get to interact with someone to understand their specials or favorite takes of the staff was challenging. Although we had booked the place for a birthday, there was not even a greeting from the staff. Made the experience very transactional: order online - pay - and we bring food to your table. Felt like a food delivery service only except to your table in the restaurant.

Would not recommend the place for special occasions, but if you are looking for great food and let you eat without anyone disturbing you, this is the place.

The food and drinks at Ayza are amazing!! Everything on the menu is delicious, and there is something for everyone - whether you are an adventurous eater or not they have something for you. The service is different because you order and pay off the QR code, but its also great because you never have to wait for your bill and it makes "splitting" the bill easy because everyone just orders their own meal.

We came here to celebrate my wife's birthday. We showed up and the staff had prepared a lovely glass of champagne for her and they closed the evening with a sparkling chocolate cake for her. The food here is amazing, one of the best meals of our lives. If I were to be forced to give any critique of this venue it would be that we did not have any wait staff attending our table. All orders had to be made at the hostess desk. Although this is my only critique, it did not hamper our experience at all. 10/10 stars.
