    Love the establishment, I am a repeat offender because it never disappoints, from the ambience to the friendly staff and scrumptious food.

    Miss Ava didn’t disappoint. The venue is immaculately presented, the 1920s vibe was stunning and comfortable. The service was lovely, the man behind the bar was very friendly and informative. I went in a very quiet day so I basically had the place to myself!

    Unfortunately the way the place was presented online was not really the experience we received. The service staff were lovely. The venue looked very fancy online (and was beautiful in person too) however the fact that there was not table service gave off pub vibes, and the food was below average and way overpriced for what it was. We were also sat right in front of an extremely large tv screen with promotional material for the hotel on loop, it was so close to us that our eyes were sore! It really took away the charm of the venue and was not at all necessary. It was also evident that the venue was very understaffed with often a large line at the bar of patrons waiting for service.
    Ms AvaResponded on 21 February 2024
    Hi, We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the experience in the Ms. Ava Bar and as we are working on the front of house team to better provide the service, also meantime, the kitchen is looking into the menu to make improve the quality. We hope to see you in the future with the better table service plus the nicer dishes. Kind Regards Danny Wu Restaurant and Bar Manager

    Quiete, reserved and very classy. Not really prepared for a birthday though, and no table service.
