Ovation Bistro & Bar - Davenport - PRIORITY SEATING
6oz of our tender sliced beef brisket
seasoned and seared
They did not know anything about the OpenTable request.
They wanted to squeeze 6 people into a booth that seats 4.
We would up outside on a chilly evening right near the loud live music ( at least he was good).
Once we got them to close the open side it was ok
At least the food was worth it.
First visit here after being recommended and it didn’t disappoint
Went here for dinner with a group of 6. Food was good. Prices were a tad on the high side but mostly worth it. Noise level was super high. Might recommend eating outside if that is a factor.
Dined on the patio. Glad they have a patio so we could enjoy dining out while feeling a bit safer from Covid. Enjoyed the live music! However,the patio lacks any ambience at all. Could use some plants, maybe a few outdoor carpets to make the space nicer and soften the sound.
Really great food and service. We all tried different dishes and everyone was very happy with their meals. A little more expensive than I expected. All in all a great spot. Will definitely be back.
Ariana was our waitress. She was incredible! Not only was she spot on with her service, she was hilarious and entertaining. The entire table said it was the best dinner they have ever had. Great place with great food.
Outstanding service. Will definitely eat here again!
Great customer service, great food and prices. It was my fist time bringing my family and they all loved it. Highly recommended.
Always a great neighborhood favorite. Staff is always Friendly.
Extensive menu, delicious and plentiful food, phenomenal service.
We stopped here for dinner on our way back to Bradenton. Food was great. We enjoyed the delivery of the food. Our server, Bryan, was helpful and informative. The cheesecake topped off the dinner nicely. Overall, We recommend for a pleasant casual meal.
Always a fantastic meal. Company that comes in town this is the first place we come to.
When I was browsing for a place for lunch, I found the Ovation Bistro, almost 4K reviews. I went with a very high expectation, although to my surprise was nothing above the average. Kind of disappointed due to a high expectation. The ribs were dry, I mention it before that I would not like dry ribs. The ribeye was well cooked.
Prime Rib special on Thursdays makes it very crowded. Prime Rib usually runs out by 7pm. Ribs fell off the bone. Steak Wedge Salad delicious.
We arrived just in time for happy hour and ended up sitting at the bar in front of the TV. Two for one drink specials for happy hour from 4:30 to 6:30 was nice we caught that just in time and both enjoyed our meals I had steak, he had ribs and brisket. The bartender I wish I could remember his name, was outstanding and the only guy behind the bar. He was working his butt off and doing a great job. We are just passing through on our travels but if I lived nearby I definitely go back.
Great place to dine, we really enjoyed the food, it was superb.
Great place. Try their signature Ovation Red Amber beer!
The food is tasty and the atmosphere is fun. I would highly recommend.
Very good BBQ in this area. Brisket was delicious! The only downside was that it was a bit salty especially the chicken and baked potato. Loved the live music on a Friday night!
Our server Sarah was great
Great food and drinks...a real lucky find. Joel the owner and Nick the bartender could not have been more attentive. Their PASSION for service and customer satisfaction was a real breath of fresh air ! Food and drinks were fantastic ! Get there !
We were seated immediately upon arrival. The service was excellent, food very good and all servers were friendly. We had a visit from the manager to ask how our food and service was, nice touch.
We had a wonderful time at Ovation. We had a very nice waiter, Nick, who was also the bartender. He didn’t miss a beat. Took care of the bar and made sure we had everything we needed. Dinner was delicious, 4 different meal choices and everyone enjoyed what they picked. We will continue to patronize this wonderful establishment.
We changes to outdoor seating. Great food for all including vegan.
Great service. Great food.
Ovation Bistro has wonderful food, a great friendly staff and outdoor and indoor seating. The food selection is very varied and guaranteed to please everyone.
It is a local restaurant owned by Veterans and guests are always made to feel very welcome
Our server Sarah was excellent. Beer selection was average. Food was above average.
Seated with no napkins or silverware. Appetizers came and I did not have a napkin. Initially were given plasticware. Ribs and brisket were a little burnt and tough on some of the pieces. People were nice.
We eat here at Ovations Bistro in Davenport quite frequently. We find the food and the service consistently excellent. If ever there is an issue with the quality or temperature at which the food is served, they make it right immediately. Servers are attentive and very good at their jobs. Highly recommended!
First time there. Food was very good. Server was excellent. Kitchen was a little slow. BUT everyone who works there was wonderful, friendly and helpful. WE will go back.
I was denied my priority seating because I was told, very rudely by the host, that it’s not reserve seating! Looking around the restaurant all tables were taken so Truth be known my table was given away
My fiancés meal was messed up 2 times, after clearly stating what we wanted on the meal, simply the definition of insanity.
Place is nice manager even attempted to help to no avail
We took friends who had not been to Ovations before. 3 of us had the prime rib special. Our friends thought the prime rib was nearly the best they'd ever eaten. We told them we have never had a bad meal or bad service at Ovations.
Food was delicious and well prepared. Our server Sarah/Naomi was wonderful and playful. Noise level is a bit loud. Overall a very positive experience, we will go back.
Food and service was excellent!!
Always reliably good food and service. Plenty of choice on the menu.
We love Ovation!
Drove a long way and found out after being seated and ordering drinks that they where out of brisket and Mac& cheese. the two reasons why we went there . We where raving to our out of town guests how good Ovations brisket was. And Ovations food in general. Also one of our guests ordered a steak med rare. When she got it it was burned to a crisp and even past well done . This won’t keep us from returning. I know everything can’t be perfect every time and there are times when things go wrong. But i just wanted to be honest in my review. Service was awesome by the way
Food and server (Christene) was excellent. Good selection of gluten free food items.
Consistently a good meal and time - but always noisy.
