I had a great time here on a date. They offer wine and cheese plates. The prices were also quite reasonable.
Ayza has become a bit of a "go-to" for my friends and I...no matter what the occasion, we find it fits. They take reservations, the service is great and the patio in the summer is so nice and cozy. I love the blankets that are left on the chairs for when it gets chilly. The bottles of wine hit all price points, which is nice to see. No dress code, and the bar isn't filled with creepers bothering you while you try to have a conversation. The menu could use a touch more variety, but aside from that I really have no complaints!
This place is AWESOME! Went there on a Friday night and was sat immediately. The wait staff was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Our waitress gave us very good recommendations on both wine and chocolate flights. She also did a great job of balancing our privacy while making sure we had everything we needed. Amazing place for a date.
My girlfriend and I came here to celebrate her birthday. The servers were friendly and brought her a glass of champagne on the house. The braised beef was great and my girlfriend’s chicken was nice as well.
Loved this place, owner was super accommodating. On a negative note, our food came out really late which put a damper on things. There were 10 of us and the food came out in parts. Four of us received our food after everyone else was done eating. Also, out waitress wasn't great.
Cool concept and very nice ambiance. Obviously more of a wine place as implied by the name, and since the food was average. The chicken was dry and so was the bass. But the scallops were good though and I normally don't like scallops at all!
One of the most knowledgable and friendly staffs I've ever come across at any drinking establishment. Crowded and noisy when we went but I can't complain, you just can't beat the service.
This place is great- it just turned out it wasn’t for me- likely because the bf is not into wines, so I probably won’t go back, at least not until I’m out of my early-mid twenties! It was cool. Liked the ambiance a lot.
