Great date night! This was the best meal we’ve had since moving to TX 3 months ago. Server,Johnathan, was great. All items were cooked well and delicious. Already want to go back to try other dishes!

Delicious food, very friendly waiter and manager!


They may want to turn the heat on. I had cheese ravioli, I thought the amount of cheese actually in the ravioli was somewhat on the lite side. McDonald’s makes a better cup of coffee.


The food and wine were SPECTACULAR!!! Everything from the food portions to the tastes made for a special dinner! On top of the great ambiance, it was a place where you could talk without having to shout! We highly recommend to ask for Jose, our server, who was great at attending to us by being there right at the perfect moments, not interrupting my wife and my date night! Never rushed us even though we were his last table that was sat and last to leave, slightly after their closing time as we were finishing up the humongous portions of food! Highly recommend Avanti and wish we would've been by sooner! Definitely adding it to the Date-Night list!

Excellent Services.


We celebrated my birthday at Avanti. The food was exceptional! My husband ordered the salmon and it was cooked perfectly. I had the spaghetti carbonara which was also delicious. The service was excellent. We definitely will be back.

First time coming, but it will not be the last. Waiter, Joseph, made it very pleasant when he accommodated our every request.


Everything was excellent. Excellent food and Service

Food tasted poorer than the last time we were there, we’ve been there three times and 2 out of 3 the waiter was bad, low level of attention, took forever just to get the payment and didn’t even offer dessert. The manager stops by just to meet a restaurant’s requirement, he doesn’t really mean to care about the service. The pasta in the chicken marsala was too stiff, the risotto felt little under cooked, provably not the worst thing, but it adds up to the mess with the service.


I keep going each week as date night with wife


The food and atmosphere were great as usual, as was our waiter, Jose.

Our reservation was for 7pm, we booked a booth, waited at the bar for 20 minutes, seated in a half booth too small for our party, moved to a table - eventually got a drink order and water 45 minutes after actual reservation made. Food was good but overall experience was disappointing - doubt we would return


wonderful service for a girl's lunch and excellent atmosphere everyone satisfied with what they ordered


Had dinner here before a concert at Cynthia Woods Pavilion. We had reservations and was running late, but called ahead and talked to the hostess who was totally accommodating to our tardiness, but also had a happy great attitude about it too. Super nice lady. Our waiters (one was in training) we both very nice and very service oriented. And the cocktails and food was delicious. We will definitely be back. Highly recommend.

The food is always superb but our service was a little lacking considering we were one of only two parties at the time of the evening on a weekday. I had to flag down our server because we waited almost 10 min for him to return to ask if we wanted appetizers. We’ll definitely be back and hope this was an isolated incident.
