Avenida is great for familiesMy extended family and I recently had dinner at Avenida. We were a group of nine, including three children, ages 3-6. We loved the options: family style meals; children's menu; regular menu; and, margaritas; mojitos; and sangria. There was something for everyone AND everything was delicious!
Additionally, our server was accommodating and gracious!
Based on our experience, we highly recommend Avenida!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had an outstanding dinner.We had an outstanding dinner. And the cocunut tres leches for dessert was a home run.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMNew experienceFood delicious, waitress very knowledgable. Seated on time. Noise level a little loud and the banquette was too close. Several people refused to be seated there because of the tightness. Seating was the negative of the night. If you have more than two in your party, then it's not too tight at all.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to eatHad a taste of their chicken tostadas at the Mt. Airy Day festival. Had to have more so went to dinner there a few evenings later. Their Caesar salad was awesome and their croutons a total surprise. Their chicken tostados are so delicious. I've had nothing like them in the past, except at the Mt. Airy Day festival. The ambience is lovely, and the staff, friendly and eager to serve you.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMHe was impressed!My husband marveled at the food and the atmosphere. You must understand, he is very picky.
I have been trying to get him there for weeks.
He now understands why. He had to speak to the chef to share how wonderful the meal was.
He had the Chilean Sea Bass. He can't wait to return.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMMuy BienThis was a great find just outside of Chestnut Hill. Food was fantastic. Service was fine, but it didn't matter because the marg's were also great. I recommend getting a pitcher.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner was fabulous!! We hadDinner was fabulous!!

These attributes were on top of an interesting and diverse menu that offered something for both the carnivores and the vegetarians alike in our group. Also, the cocktails and desserts were delightful. Will definitely go to Avenida again to try something else on their delicious menu!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this place, and so gladLove this place, and so glad it's in our neighborhood! We've been there many times, most recently for a birthday celebration. Started with the shrimp ceviche and beet salads, which were both tasty, and then had vegetarian/vegan options for dinner -- the chef's vegetarian platter which is always great, and the tamales which were yummy. Flan was perfect dessert choice, and they brought some traditional shot of Tequila, coffee liquore and seltzer/sprite when they learned it was my husband's birthday. I've been there with groups of women friends for birthday celebrations, and w/couples. Overall a really nice place with friendly service, festive atmosphere and a seasonally-changing menu.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Taco Tuesday!I dine often at Avenida & I am always delighted by the food & the service. I live in the neighborhood, so I am very lucky. I encourage people from the rest of the city to come & check out this wonderful restaurant in Chestnut Hill/Mt. Airy. This past week I went with a friend to check out their Taco Tuesday. For $20 I got a choice of 3 different tacos & 3 different sides. By choice I mean that I could have 3 tacos/sides of one kind or I could mix-and-match. I tried all 3 tacos/sides & enjoyed each & every one. My preference was for the pollo taco. The taste was delicious. The service is perhaps even better than the food. I also got a dish to go & it was piping hot & ready when I was leaving. Excellent dining! Come check it out!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great dinner andWe had a great dinner and wonderful service. Overall a fun evening. the only LITTLE bit of criticism is that they were out of one of the appetizers, and the wine we ordered wasn't available. We will definitely return.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMI took my son there for EasterI took my son there for Easter brunch and it was lovely, a good experience all-around.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMFood choices were varied.Food choices were varied.

There were two people in our group who have slight hearing problems and they had a VERY difficult time hearing anything, even the conversation at our table. The owners need to do something to try and reduce the noise level. Otherwise, we all love Avenida.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food. A very uniqueGreat food. A very unique menu.
