Excellent!Excellent food and service. Have been there repeatedly, and repeatedly excellent.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMom wanted to go to Il Garagefor Mother's Day. We sat in a garage - was pretty different having a couple of tractors nearby at dinner. It was very hot that day - in the 90s, so a little steamy in the restaurant, but we asked to sit out there so we knew what we were getting into. Food was good and fresh, altho somewhat bland - needed to add red pepper to my seafood linguine. My wife had the pork shank that was very good, and so was my daughter's whitefish. All in all, a very enjoyable night.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA pleasant surprisePhenomenal food and service. I really didn't know what to expect. I took my girlfriend here for a special occasion in hopes that it would deliver the romantic atmosphere and great food I had read about. It meet and greatly exceeded my expectations by far.The ambiance was superb, the food and drinks were out of this world, and for what you get, the price was very reasonable.
We both tried the specials, myself the prime rib, and my girlfriend the Antelope. Both were among the top I had ever tasted. A sweet treat at the end from their young pastry chef Allison, was a welcome surprise. She also bakes all the restaurants bread (equally unique and delicious).
Don't miss out on this one. Have a night on the town and treat yourself to Park Ave.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciously Satisfying Dinner.As usual Park Ave served us a wonderful meal with impeccable service and amazingly satisfying taste from start to finish. From the spinach salad tossed at table side, the best tomato soup anywhere on earth, to the delicious Salmon plate and finally completed with a wonderful tasting berry sorbet. It so nice to find this gem of a restaurant in the Stanton area. Also it's great to see the chef and the owner always on the floor greeting their guests and asking how everything was, Always nice to get what you pay for in a nice restaurant.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious and UniqueThe Service was fantastic. Our waiter new the menu, had a sense of humor and was very energetic. We were are group of four, my wife and my parents, celebrating my wife's birthday. The setting is dark, they were serving antelope and if you like the outdoors you can sit next to the garden. Restaurant is more of a steakhouse. Garden dining is Italian. Two very different experience all in the same location... next time... we will go to the li'l garage for Italian.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AM1st time to Park AveI was celebrating my 40th & being a weekday wanted to go somewhere nice, but close to home.
Park Ave had been recommended in the past, so I thought great day to try it.
Loved the quiet atmosphere! The food was delicious and the service was great.

Sincerely, Barbara3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMBest New York steak I haveBest New York steak I have ever had and believe me I've had many. Great flavor. Amazing food. Little bit pricey and you cannot bring your own wine.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother positive experience!Park Ave. is a great place for a romantic dinner. Start off with a drink at the bar and a chat with the friendly and knowledgeable bartenders.
On this occasion my husband and I shared a shrimp cocktail and caesar salad to start. I had the filet mignon special and my husband had the stuffed pork chop. The food was good but on this occasion not spectacular. On our last visit I had the ribeye and the beet salsd both of which I love. Next time I'm going back to my favorites! After dinner its nice to take a walk through the garden and admire the lettuces, flowers, etc. I'm looking forward to my next visit!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding food and serviceOur first-time visit made it clear why it has such a high Zagat rating. The meals and desserts were delicious -- so tasty, that you want to eat slowly and savor your food! We had their pork chops and mixed grill (one rack of lamb bone, filet medallion, and skewered shrimp). Sharing their in-house prepared peanut butter sundae and chocolate ice cream brulee together was a scrumptious way to finish the meal. Service was excellent and friendly.
Didn't care for the retro 50s/60s interior and dark lighting, though we have heard that several others like the ambiance and especially the food/service. Because the food and service were outstanding, we'll be back to try other dishes.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThe scallops were superb.The scallops were superb. The menu items are delicious and inventive and very fairly priced. The grilled ahi was a bit overcooked, but still tasty.3/10/2013 12:00:00 AMNickiVinciButlerDinner was wonderful! Denise was our server and she was very attentive and prompt. We explained that it was our first time there and she encouraged us to take a walk in the garden. My husband and I took her suggestion and were thankful we did! This week(for my birthday)we will be trying Il Garage. Wonderful meal, ambiance and staff! We were in one of the back booths and they had a large party in the back room and it was a bit loud, but laughter is always a good thing to hear. It would be nice if they had doors to filter out some noise from large parties.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMVery cool mid-century retroVery cool mid-century retro restaurant. Food was really good and used ingredients from the on-site garden...very fresh and flavorful! Great find off the beaten track. Will definitely go there again when in Orange County.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
