Our friendly waitress made us feel comfortable right away. She was cheerful about answering questions and bringing us a second basket of their good bread(French baguette and pretzel bread). We enjoyed all our entrees. When our friend had a birthday she received the chocolate lava dessert on the house which was large enough for all of us to share.

The food and ambiance were fantastic. Sea bass and scallops were divine. The wait between courses was uncomfortably long.

It was our wedding anniversary. We didn’t realize that on Sundays it’s only brunch at 2pm. I asked for a Cesar salad dressing on the side and if they could add salmon please well done, I don’t care for it raw in any way. My meal came with dressing on the salad and undercooked salmon. So she took it back and I’m thinking ok I will get new salad dressing on the side, nope same salad but better cooked salmon. Doubt we would go again.

We went to the Avairy and didn't realize it was Sunday Brunch. But, it was a pleasant surprise! The food was excellent as was the service. We ate outside and thoroughly enjoyed our time there.

Everything is delicious but some of the items were pricey. I understand the price for extravagant items. But $6 for a small glass of orange juice was a bit ridiculous

One of the nicest outdoor dining patios in the area. Lots of tables so you don't feel packed in. Service was a little slow but this has been a really tough summer for servers so we were okay with the wait time - maybe 15 minutes before she came for our drink order?? we weren't in a rush so enjoyed our time outside. Food was okay. Nothing crazy special but a nice evening overall.

We have enjoyed Aviary so often - food (although not cheap) is very good. Service is also good and Aviary has done a great job setting up its parameters on Open Table to allow for a very easy reservation process. Unfortunately, on our last two visits (over the last three weeks) we have run into those dreaded ankle biting bugs while dining outside. Really annoying and ruins the whole formerly lovely dining experience.

There were three of us who met for lunch at The Aviary. This was our first opportunity to eat outdoors at the restaurant. The gardens were lovely and the patio seating was nicely appointed. One friend had a turkey burger and my other friend had a Caesar salad with shrimp (could have used more than three small shrimp). Both said their meals were delicious. I had a turkey club and my sandwich was just OK. Our waiter was very attentive and checked with us frequently to see if we needed anything. Over all our experience was very positive.
