Walked in without a reservation (on Black Friday) and was able to get a seat within 20 minutes. Couches make the bar seating cozy. Every dish we ordered was delicious. Cheese plate is a wonderful start (waitstaff was very knowledgeable about cheese pairings). Fish was fresh, pasta in taco shells is a must try! Truffle fries were perfectly cooked and plenty enough for all 5 of us to share. Stuffed dates were delish! Will always visit this restaurant when in Jacksonville!

Meet some friends there for drinks. The service was outstanding and there staff was very knowledgable on different vodka, scotches, bourbons, etc. Although we did not order food, our friends ordered food. The presentation and flavor was outstanding according to our friends. Was wishing I did not have dinner prior to meeting up with them. Will definitely go back to enjoy food and beverages.

Good atmosphere for people watching, have some wine and cheese pairing. Ok service. Food is subpar for what's advertised. Recommend only wine and appz, and go elsewhere for dinner.

Unusually lovely indoor and outdoor dining areas and food that is inventive without being bizarre paired with attentive service make for an entertaining evening.

We did have a great dining experience at Ovinte. It was almost exceptional and still recommendable. The of decided to try the new place at Town Center and we're glad we did we had a bumpy start because our [female] bartender was a dud but all other things were great. I ordered a craft cocktail from the menu and she told the didn't have the ingredients. ??? Then went I struggled for a second choice she left No query or suggestions about a similar sub. She was barely there and certainly not engaged. The tapas were good the atmosphere was fun we'll try it again. Just pray we get a different bartender.
