Very goodDelightful outdoor dining..great food..excellent service...rustic Itialian5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went to Avalon for Mother'sWe went to Avalon for Mother's Day 2013 and were thoroughly impressed. Our waitress was excellent and the food selection was fantastic. Having several food allergies ordering can be a challenge but all of my requests were accommodated without hesitation and execution of said requests was flawless which made me extremely happy! HIGHLY recommend!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLove it!I have eaten there twice and been very happy both times. I love that the tables are a bit spread out & you are not sitting with and overhearing what the table next to you is discussing, which many restaurants in the area have been overcrowding with tables. Love the BYOB. Will absolutely come back again!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAvalon is our favorite restaurantAvalon is our favorite restaurant and we are never disappointed. John manages to keep the menu fresh and interesting with new dishes and his crew of servers combines professionalism with friendliness, which is a tough combination to beat. This time we shared the charcuterie with a couple of Italian cheeses, salami and nice accoutrements, including tasty "candied" figs. My wife had the goat cheese ravioli while I had the fazzoletti with pork cheeks. Wonderful. We finished with a tasty cinnamon bread pudding topped with ice cream. Lovely evening.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAvalon always gives you aAvalon always gives you a great meal. We always look forward to the cheese selections as a starter.

He said no worries, it's used at the base for one of the pasta dishes for the spring menu. It was delicious, just like I remember. Avalon will continue to be a favorite for us.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMUsually the restaurant usUsually the restaurant us less noisey. But the food and service never vary from very good.

Lovely place to take one's special friend. Remember it's a BYOB.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a wonderful 3-course EasterHad a wonderful 3-course Easter brunch for our family of 6. There were many items from which to choose; several of us found the frittatas especially good, but you could have picked almost anything and I'm sure you would have enjoyed it. Avalon also had all the fixin's needed for great Bloody Marys with BYOB vodka. Great service to boot! Very nice experience, as always.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe will be back! Food is alwaysWe will be back! Food is always good and the ambience is always warm!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAvalon is a great place forAvalon is a great place for dinner in WC. As long as I have lived in WC and dined out so often, I can't believe this was the first time there. The food was great, with a very nice and creative menu. The portions are a perfect size. The chef's menu is a god deal although we did not try it. I would definitely try it the next time. Definite place for foodies! The decor and ambiance were great, very classy yet low key. it was little noisy at times, but there was a large party near us, and they were having a great time. Who can blame them or the restaurant? The two fireplaces are very nice, although the one we were sitting next to was not in operation. The staff was excellent!! Very attentive, without being intrusive. I will be back for sure!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was a phenomenal find!This was a phenomenal find! We found it searching for a nice BYOB and fell into a foodies paradise! We enjoyed the 4 course menu tour and each dish was beyond expectations. There's nothing bad to say about the experience. They even had gluten free options for the pasta course and the manager checked on me to make sure the food allergies had been addressed throughout the meal. A definite 5 stars and we look forward to returning!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMYou will not be disappointed!This is easily my favorite restaurant - and the unmatched best - in the West Chester area and beyond. The food is outstanding, the service is wonderful, and the ambiance is just perfect. When you send every plate back utterly clean, you're saying something!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMOnce again, we had a greatOnce again, we had a great meal at our favorite restaurant. There were 3 of us late on a Saturday evening and we ate at the chef's table right up near the kitchen area. Neat location! Everything was great, and, even though it was a busy night, our servers never missed a beat. If you're an olive lover, try the chili-cured olives as an appetizer or addition to an entree. Top notch. Avalon always delivers!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb food and service makeSuperb food and service make Avalon the best find in West Chester for over 5 years we have dined there. Whether ordering a la carte or the Tour of the Menu you will not be disappointed. Consistently a delight!3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMTerrific!As always, Avalon is a fabulous restaurant to visit. The food is terrific both presentation and taste. Prices are respectible and size is just right - not so much that you can't eat it all, or so little that you are still hungry. Pace is nice too - not rushed, but no long pauses between the courses. And as a BYOB, this is just perfect.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
