My son is moving to Jacksonville, we met him there and was looking for a quiet place to get some wine and some cheese and meat tray and was very impressed with the atmosphere and was able to have conversations with our group in a relaxed setting with the couches around small tables. Will be one of the places we... More

Our brunch at Ovinte was great! We started with their signature cocktails. I had The Beacon, a delicious cucumber-celery infused Plymouth gin with lime juice, ginger ale and watermelon ice. And my husband had a Pisco sour, made with egg white, lime juice and simple syrup. We enjoyed these while we munched on broiled Medjool dates stuffed with Asher blue... More

I really enjoyed our well trained waiter. Excellent steak tartare, grilled caesar, pappardelle bolognese and sauteed clams.

Loved everything about this place! Ordered the cheese board and it was amazing- there were so many options and each was better than the next. Will definitely be back, there were a half dozen other cocktails I must try!

So... More
