    My first visit to Avenue 5. Beautiful setting, awesome wine display, vibrant bar. The food was fantastic, but being new shows somewhat. While our waiter was excellent, the time it took to get the food served was a bit excessive. I hope that as they get more time under their belt, the service will equal everything else. I will definitely go back to try again!

    Specified celebrating wedding anniversary, which was ignored by the waiter & hostess, also requested quiet romantic table & hostess, was seating us next to large noisey group of at least 12 ...i spoke up & she moved us...Hostess, very unprofessional to be working the front there, Food with up-scale fine dining price tag does not live up to its price...would give it a 4 at best....fine dining costs for middle of the road place that claims to be up-scale fine dining, NOT....Very noisy, with smoke coming inside the restaurant from all the windows being opened & folks smoking out there...not good for us non-smokers...as a local, i will not return & not suggest it to anyone....

    Avenue 5 was one of the best meals we have ever had at a restaurant in Naples. The selection was very good and the service was great. Very pricey but at least it was a great meal and great service. The same can't be said for some other expensive restaurants in Naples.

    What an amazingly beautiful restaurant. Chic, upscale, beautifully appointed, and yet warm and with great views of 5th Avenue. The food was also superb -- my scallops were extremely fresh, cooked perfectly, nicely spiced and just fantastic overall. All of our food was outstanding. The prices were also reasonable for such a high-end restaurant. My filet was considerably less expensive than you'd find in most major cities -- I was pleasantly surprised. They also gave us a generous pour of the champagne by the glass we ordered. Avenue 5 is a "must dine" experience for anyone living in or visiting the SW Florida area.

    We ordered off the $30 menu. The salad seemed like it had been made an hour before it was presented and it was a bit big. The pork chop was dry, overcooked and hard to cut. I expected something to fall off the bone since it was called BBQ. Desert- a scoop of sorbet with a few berries. Not memorable.

    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!

    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.
