    From the moment we walked in the door we felt at home. The smile at the front podium, being set immediately in the beautiful dining room, the fresh locally sourced food, and top wines chosen for Octavia’s cuisine from all over the world, the friendly service… it all adds up to an experience second to none. Special thanks to Eli and Iris. Lots of love to Octavia until the next time!

    Lovely summer menu, executed perfectly. Wait staff very knowledgeable but not formal or stiff. We were deep in conversation, they waited. Great advice on wine pairings, perfect descriptions of plates. Great atmosphere.

    Everything was delicious. A little salty on the entrees, but was very flavorful. We went as four people. We did the tasting menu. There was a very good variety of dishes and was served family style. We were able to try a little of everything. The price was worth the quality of the meal.
