    Comfortable pleasant modern ambience; excellent attentive friendly service but not overbearing; quality fresh seafood well prepared. Desserts exquisitely prepared giving high satisfaction without sensing guilt. All portions adequate but not excessive. Overall presentation excellent. Pricing is moderately high but worth it ! A very enjoyable dining experience.

    My daughter & I had dinner at Avenue 5 on Sat., 08/30/14 at 8:00 P.M. Our waiter was Robert. We ordered an appetizer of mussels, entrees of medium rare but more towards the rare side beef tenderloin with Sauce Bearnaise, a side of lobster mac & cheese, and a glass of wine. After a 40 minute wait, the mussels arrived with our entree, the beef was medium well and it arrived without the Bearnaise sauce, the lobster mac & cheese NEVER arrived despite my asking the waiter for it several times (for which I never received an explanation), and the second glass of wine came as I was paying the bill. If the experience was this bad during off season, I cannot imagine how they will handle the restaurant during season.

    Located in the heart of 5th Ave, this was my most disappointing meal of the summer. Although we had been warned about the prices by other diners, we along with three other couples decided to try the 3 course plus glass of wine summer special on a week night. The salad was okay but when my steak fritte entree arrived I was shocked and wondered why they asked how I wanted it prepared. It was extremely thin and could not have been even three ounces with a ton of French fries. Another in our group also thought his steak was minuscule but his was larger than mine. Other entrees except the chicken breast were rated as ordinary. Have had many specials at other 5 th Ave places where the price was less and the food more plentiful and tastier.

    Having lived in Naples for nearly 20 years, we had occasion to visit this restaurant's first incarnation several times. It was a neighborhood favorite, with a prime location in the center of town, and quite special because of it's irish pub atmosphere and cuisine. Now it is distinctive as a sophisticated, modern, go-to restaurant for the theatre crowd and others desiring good food in a beautiful place. I predict it will be jammed with people during high season once word of mouth gets out. Speaking of high season, the quiet designation we experienced will change once that time of year rolls around.

    We dine out quite often and it is really hard to be our "best" of anything. Avenue 5 absolutely hit every mark and is probably the best restaurant in Naples. I will say that some of the dishes on the menu were a little too creative, but that isn't a negative, I'm just a picky eater. Still, I found something that I liked, as did my wife, and we both were blown away by everything we ordered. The duck flatbread appetizer started us off on an excellent night, and everything else just fell into place. This place is perfect for special occasions, or if you've never been to Fifth Avenue before, make this a definite stop on your vacation list. Just wow!

    This restaurant still trying to find its niche in the Naples market. Very pricey. Six people, 4 alcoholic drinks, one split dinner and two guests that ordered an appetizer for main course. Bill...$400 including tip. I'll stick with my old favorites.

    I loved the decor and ambience. The bar was great and they had a really good selection of house cocktails. We chose the Moscow Mule and Manhattan and loved them. I thought the menu, basically steak and seafood, was a little out of touch with the mood of the restaurant, but the food was cooked to our liking and served efficiently. They have an extensive wine list and a good selection of wines available by the glass. The prices of both food and drink were quite reasonable, but this was mid-summer and to be expected. I expect the place to be jammed in season, and probably more expensive, but I'd certainly come back at this time of year.

    The first time we had dinner at Avenue Five we enjoyed our entrées and the restaurant was very busy. When I returned a couple of months later in the summer, I knew it would be slower, but I didn't expect slow service and unappetizing food. What a change in just a short period of time!

    Stopped in here with my girl's after a day of chilling at the beach. We were all really ready to eat. Hadn't had a decent lobster roll since Legal Seafood in DC. Unfortunately, I still haven't. But my friends ordered other things and I ate from them. My lobster roll was not good, not filling, and far too expensive to be served that way. Ambience was great though. Right on 5th Avenue adjacent to our hotel The Inn on 5th. Overall, cute place to eat, just skip the lobster roll.

    We were disappointed with our dining experience at Avenue5. The asparagus soup was okay but the rest of our dinner servings were less than memorable. Service was fine except for the fact that our appetizers showed up before we'd had three sips from our cocktails. And the wine list, while large, was way overpriced, and limited in quality wines priced under $100 a bottle. One highlight was the restaurant interior design. Well layed out, comfortable and spacious dinner seating, and a clean modern look. The large bar could be a plus as well during season but was pretty empty the night we had dinner.

    I couldn't fault the food or service - but this restaurant is very overpriced. Although we did wait quite a long time for our entree and the bread was served with 3 types of butter - but we were left to guess what they were. Entrees were mostly more than $40. Considering this restaurant replaced McCabe's Pub it was quite a surprise. Also, it was a very hot evening and the doors to the outside were left open - we asked to be moved further inside where it was a bit cooler.

    One of the most beautifully designed restaurants we've ever dined in. And yes the food is outstanding & the service top notch. Shrimp cocktail is a MUST - shrimp so big you could put a saddle on it! Avenue5-4 play is another fantastic appetizer. The fish is fresh & perfectly cooked; the steaks are great quality & oh so tasty; and the squash three ways is not to be missed. Nice specialty cocktail selections are offered at the bar and just gazing at the wine storage makes even a teetotaler want to become an oenophile. Add the sustainable, organic, hormone-steroid-antibiotic free, grass-fed, free-range, heritage, prime element & you've got a hands down favorite on swanky 5th Avenue South.
