Are you wondering which wine to drink in Autumn? If so, here are some tips..
While there are certainly no hard and fast rules about any type of wine, or wines, that wine connoisseurs should consume during any given season, there is often a natural palate shift.

It's really a 3.5, not 4 stars. Came here for girl's night and their yummy Chocolate Martini. Maybe it's just me, I don't like to be flirted upon by the server when I'm trying to order food - wrong time man! Came here during happy hour, we were given red wine sampler and gratis chocolates to nibble on. The chocolate martinis were divine especially after a long day at the office. We pigged out ordering a TON of delectable food - unfortunately they needed to stagger our orders because the table was so small it can only accompany two/three tapas plating. When the food did come, we had to play tetris with server to place everything on the table, which is distracting as the girls and I are conversing.

Ayza is always a safe bet! The chocolate martini and chocolate fondue are from another planet. This restaurant also has a wide and delicious selection of small starters to share. The venue is laid back and cozy, but is quite small - it's sometimes hard to have an intimate discussion. This only downside doesn't affect the overall great impression that you get when having dinner at Ayza.

GREAT vegetarian menu! Did the $80 pp, 4 course meal at Ayza for my sister's bachelorette party and it was AMAZING to say the least. There was more than enough food, they kept the beer and wining flowing and service was excellent. Best part was the crepe cake at the end. :)

This place was great. The food, wine, and service was also very good. It was a very busy time, so the bathroom was messy and could have used more attention. There was also some confusion as to whether or not we could actually get a seat when we initially got there but once we were successfully seated, things ran smoothly. We ordered individual items off the pre-fixed menu which was slightly confusing but the waitstaff really cared about accommodating us. I'm vegetarian, so being given the option to order a la carte was greatly appreciated. Would recommend going to this place.

We stopped for a glass of wine and chocolates. Chose the x4 wine tasting and x6 chocs. What a lovely combination. The venue is very small. The service was a little slow and one of the waitresses was a little rude/grumpy. I would still recommend this for a quick stop.

Excellent wine and accompaniments. The live singer was a plus with a spanish-style guitar musician. I sat at the bar, having a Chalone Chardonnay, a Barbera, and then a great chocolate-infused wine with a dessert of a truffle that had Indian spice in it. I didn't have an entree; the select cheese and cured ham appetizer came on a heavy, irregularly shaped thick wood slab and the excellent hot artichoke and cheddar dip were enough for a meal. The steamy dip was top of the line, almost like a crab dip, that stayed hot the entire time. The baguette bread slices (of several types) were lightly toasted with the cheese plate and the pita slices were freshly warmed, sliced into narrow triangles that worked very well with the dip. Two bites of dark chocolate (gratis) were special, one lightly salted and the other with small bits of espresso beans.
