OVINTE Ratings and Reviews
Good food and atmosphere, but the service (or kitchen management) was very poor. The appetizer arrived after the entree and two of us got our meal at least 15 minutes after the other two. We kept sharing food with each other so that we all could eat but it was not relaxing. Two dinners were comp'ed as they should have been. Still, the menu was interesting and the food (when we finally got it) was good but small portions. We were dining early so trying this when they are busy might be risky, unless they were just having an off night, in which case, I might go again.
The food was very good and the server was moderately attentive but we had to ask twice to have our prosecco glasses refilled. The acoustics in Ovinte are not great but we were seated quite close to a large party which was very loud - not unruly just loud because of the group's size. Also several children seem to have gotten detached from their party and were running around the indoor and outdoor areas which was inappropriate, and in at least one instance, dangerous (almost collding with a server). I like Ovinte and go their often, but there are a few things they could work on.
Some dishes were completely devoid of flavor, while others were quite good. Ambiance was great, and Katie our server was wonderful. She was always right there when needed but not intrusive.
I haven't been in years, but it just didn't feel as top notch as my previous visit. Could have been an off night.
Went for brunchmost recently and the food was good just really small portions. One egg for eggs Benedict... but they have a great menu. Service was really slow. Drinks took forever. This happens everytime I go here. Also requested an outdoor table in reservation but there was not a table for us outside. Food is good but it is expensive and service isn't great so not sure how many more chances I will give ovinte.
On Valentine's day is was disappointing. The server forget one of the dishes I ordered. The Pappardelle bolanise was cooked very different. It now has stewed canned tomatoes, and the brine taste is in every bite. I felt every dish was a step down and not as good as it was. My wife ordered a fountain of youth drink and the server said it was only available on weekends. She then ordered an ameratto sour. She did not care for the drink and sent it back. Then out of the blue the fountain of youth drink was available. Strange
Server was practically non existent. We'd make a request and he'd disappear for twenty minutes at a time so we decided to not even order food or any drinks because we'd have to wait forever to even order then even longer to receive our things. A friend had a problem with the check and he was nowhere to be found (what if we used card and had to wait ages for him to run it?) And funny thing is he had a table next to us and was checking on them constantly but would immediately turn and walk away rather than checking on us too. I've had better service there than this. And the bacon wrapped dates are disgusting.
The wine was way over priced. We ordered the half bottle of the Prisoner. We received a 6oz pour and that was it. It was $22 for 6oz!!!! Since when did wine start coming in 12oz bottles?! We paid $44 total for 2 glasses of wine (6oz each). We won't be back.
The restaurant is beautiful, the cheese board and cocktails were amazing but the main entrees were a bit bland and basic and the salad had very little flavor compared to how it was written up on the menu. It was a bit disappointing in that regard. Next time I'd just go for the cheese and drinks.
