From Our Editors

Located in the heart of Mayfair, Avista was designed by David d'Almada in a modern and comfortable style, featuring exposed brick walls and a granite-topped work station in the main part of the restaurant, which allows diners to see the chefs add final touches to the dishes. Avista Restaurant & Bar is headed up by the Executive Chef Arturo Granato. Arturo has his own take on the modern Italian style of cooking and regularly changes his menus to take advantage of the freshest seasonal produce. Avista was awarded three AA Rosettes and a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

lovely little food samples BUT the venue tries to trade you up to extortionate extras on the wine/cheese/bread front

Complicated billing - very sure we overpaid due to deliberately complex ways of itemising a very simple meal. The service was average to poor - restaurant virtually empty yet staff were very unattentive. On one occasion we made direct eye contact with a waiter on three occasions and he looked away rather than coming over. Once, maybe a mistake, three times was clearly ‘I can’t be bothered to come over to you’. Decided to do the wine pairing two courses in, still charged for the full set of wines. As it was a business meeting it wasn’t really possible to challenge this properly at the time. In terms of food, again fairly average, and clear that this restaurant is not at all in the same league as the London hotel restaurants who have stars.

The food was nice. However, service was kinda hit and miss. They did try, they were kind and polite but somehow just not hitting the mark. It was supposed to be a birthday dinner and they brought out our last course. Then our waiter came up to our dinner, apologised and said he sent us the wrong plate. Took our plate away and came back with the same dish only now with birthday greetings on it. Also, when they took our coats, we gave them our umbrella and they forgot to give them back on our way out (we only remembered once we reached home). Lastly, my partner ended up with upset stomach. :(

I was food poison, told them it cold in the middle, and they made me feel uncomfortable telling them, and they even messed my order up, which meant I had to wait longer for my food. Not even a apology

wonderful food...service was top as well. The only problem in my view was the fact that they only had pork as the main course. I dont normally eat red meat as so many people dont, specially pork. They should have at least one option either than pork.
