This resident of Richmond’s ‘restaurant row’ provides “a unique experience for foodies” with its pricey but “mind-blowing” presentations of seasonal, old-world Italian cuisine that’s “well-suited to sharing among a group” and is enhanced by a “great assortment of wines” and “well-crafted cocktails” ; the “chic and cozy” dining room can be “noisy” , but the “highly knowledgeable ” staff more than compensates, resulting in an experience considered “an evening unto itself” ; P.S. “be prepared to dress for the occasion.”

Great experience here. Enjoyed the myriad of food. The ambiance was beautiful and the food was the best part. Our waiter was busy but attentive to our food and beverage needs. The variety met our needs for healthy yet interesting and good variety; very savory; not too salty or sweet. My old eyes couldn't read the menu in the dim light easily but it made everything so dreamy I didn't mind. We really enjoyed eating here and we will be back!

Ava Gene's was the first place my friend and I went to once we touched down in Portland. We were new to the city, and the ambiance at the restaurant was welcoming and cozy. Our waiter helped us pick out great choices on the menu. There is seasonal, but there was an appetizer we had that was almost like a savory puff pastry...so good! Its was the perfect way to start our trip!

Incredible experience at Ava Genes. The staff here are fantastic not to mention the food. We were in town from Vancouver BC and were blown away with the flawless service (staff went above and beyond to make our night special), incredible wines and family style menu. Would highly recommend this place.
