    You cannot loose the chance to taste the delicious and fresh food that Avere Ristorante provides to their guests. I'm really surprised from the warm hospitality and good service there. They turn simplicity and taste into art.

    There were plenty of places to sit as there were maybe 10 other customers the whole time we had dinner. The music was so quiet there was nothing in the background, so we listened to our neighboring table’s convo the whole night. The staff was friendly but very timid, shy. Food was excellent, and good variety.

    Run from this place to anywhere else. The food was horrible, and often not even as presented on the menu. We ordered shrimp over write beans; they were served over black. The shrimps themselves were fishy and had an off putting consistency. The whole dish was inedible. Every white sauce, regardless of how it was billed, seemed to mirror a thick, gummy, out of a jar, cheap alfredo sauce. Ew. Our meal was a disaster from start to finish. Seventy five percent of what we ordered we left on our plates. So sad.

    OpenTable conveniently left out that this is located in a hotel. There was no one else in here on a Saturday night and it just felt really weird to be honest. We ended up getting one drink and leaving. Would not recommend at all unless you’re staying in that hotel and have no other options.

    The service was literally trash. I really wish i could put 0 stars for everything. We arrived for our 8:30 pm reservation before 8:30 pm, and yet we didn’t leave the restaurant until 10:30 pm! We ordered all of our food when we first got to the restaurant so the fact it took that long was very annoying. The waiter let us know at 9:30 when we first complained at the wait that he had JUST put our main course food in. Needless to say we were very displeased with the service and the disregard of our concerns.

    Felt obligated to leave this review because exceptional experience is important and should be reviewed. Superb traditional Italian restaurant. The baked clams were an outstanding appetizer and the homemade papperdelle with the porcini sauce was out of this world. My friend had the pollo mt etna and i couldn’t resist without trying. Compliments to the chef. Service was good. Our table had two servers who were attentive. Very precise with the menu suggesting those delicious entrees. Im looking forward to try some other interesting choices listed on the menu.

    Sub par Hotel Chain kitchen posing as an Italian restaurant. Service was average. Went there because it was close to the Alamo Draft House on a cold rainy evening. I would walk much further in a blizzard or hurricane before returning. The food was horribly over priced Sysco fare. Don’t go.

    I saw this place on Opentable. Is only one or so blocks from my apartment. Needless to say,I was pretty excited to try to it , and it far surpassed my high expectations . You have to walk through the lobby hotel. The space itself is very pretty Oslo very large. Wonderful bar more than 20 chairs ,private erea to have nice conversation. As far the food , we decide to start with the burrata and filet minjo was clearly high quality.Even though place is located in Sheraton Hotel we did receive excellent food and service . Definitely coming back soon.
