I've been here many times.
I wrote a favorable review in July 2012.
Most in that review still holds. Good food.
A couple of things have changed there.
Prices have gone up. No surprise there. Where are prices not going up!?
* Some ala carte menu items have tripled in price recently, which seems like a lot to me.
* I always would substitute a salad for rice & beans. They changed so that you can still substitute with a salad & not get the rice & beans but they now charge you for the salad. Is that a substitution? OK, so now I know. Just didn't know that when I ordered because it's not on any (old or new) menu & they do not tell you.
They they raised their prices & printed new menus. Problem is that they gave me an OLD menu to order from. So it was a surprise when we got the bill. When I asked about it they acknowledged that the menus were just recently changed & that I had gotten one of the old menus. Apparently some of the old menus were still in circulation. It happens. They would not change our bill to reflect their error. We did not make a deal about. We just paid & left.
Unfortunately that left a chink in Avila's normally stellar reputation & ratings for us.
