Aventura Ratings and Reviews
Had a few problems with getting everyone's food and drinks out at the same time. It was very busy and they had a lot of staff working hard, but I think their menu is too large for the kitchen staff to handle. Great drinks and apps. Can get very stuffy with the amount of people inside and out.
This used to be my favorite restaurant. This time it wasn't quite as excellent.
Our server was great and she was knowledgeable about food ingredients and the overall popularity of certain dishes.
It was a little hard to find gluten free and dairy free.
There was a bit too much of a barbecue tomato taste to many of the fish dishes.
Very fun all the way around.
Wonderful service, our server had excellent knowledge of the menu. The food was excellent! The ambience was fair, we were dining on a Saturday night so it was fairly busy. Due to the volume of patrons, the noise level was moderarely loud. The prices are on the more expensive side, so it is not somewhere I would dine for everday occasions. That being said, it is wonderful, and a restsurant that everyone should try at least once!
Service was good, food was generally good, but we had to wait over 20 minutes for a entree we ordered at the beginning of the meal after the last of our tapas came out. Our waitress kept apologizing, but it still took a long time to come out once they realized we hadn't gotten it yet. It was the mushroom pasta, which when it arrived was not worth the wait. It was very bland, as if they forgot to add any salt at all. The tapas we had prior to this dish were delicious though and seasoned well.
We were seated at the worst location in the restaurant right next to the storage/garbage closet, even though the restaurant was almost completely empty. The food was excellent, though. The service was pretty lousy. I mostly tip 20%, but our waitress was only half good (10%). Dishes were not cleared properly for a buffet. I had to put one dish on top of the other! For a $25 per person buffet, I expect much better service.
Every bite was delightful!
We enjoyed sharing all of the foods, both small and large plates.
It was all beautifully presented and the portions were sufficient for 4 people. Our second time here. I plan to return!
Also the bartender was very entertaining and the drinks were all unique and interesting. Delicious Sangria.
Came here for brunch. It wasn't very busy but our server was not very attentive. The food took about 40 minutes to come out. Then the server didn't stop by to check in for about a half hour (after initially coming over to see how the food was) so we were stuck at the table and couldn't pay for that long. The food was ok. Not bad but not out of the ordinary. I probably won't come back again but try it for yourself and make your own decision.
Had a wonderful experience again at Aventura, the menu changed since our last visit and appreciated our server's aid in navigating the changes. Food is wonderful, and we had a party of 4 with similar dietary tastes, so sharing 8 dishes was a wonderful way to sample a bit of everything.
We were seated in the basement near the bathrooms. Only two tables down there so definitely seemed like afterthought. Food was good but we ordered Lobster paella and server could not find any crackers to open the shells. Can't eat expensive lobster if you can't get it out of the shell. They eventually found one near the end of our meal. Bummer.
I've been to this restaurant before for dinner and really enjoyed it. This time we were there for brunch our daughter's birthdays. The service was very slow and the music was so loud we couldn't hear each other speak. I'm not sure why the music was so loud given people are there to eat and enjoy each other's company. The food was very good as always. Brunch was also awkward for a tapa's restaurant.
