Diner Reviews
  • "3rd & last time back! Service spotty beginning to end . Waitress was friendly until we all ordered Special & that was that! Salad (which to be full of various items) was lukewarm chopped iceberg lettuce ! Husband had the soup which was good, but luke warm. Special was Lobster (try to find any other than the scum that forms when you cook it!) Mac & Cheese in a small cup with top sprinkled with fine spicy hot breadcrumbs in a cheesy sauce-all lukewarm. Filet Mignon was dry, overcooked, also lukewarm, & so heavily doused with black pepper, it almost inedible. Strawberry shortcake was a joke! No one to complain to cause they didn't come back except to leave & pickup the check! Noise level was horrible!"

  • "I would like to Thank Park Avenue for meeting my request to eat outdoors. The Service was impeccable and the ambiance was very relaxing. I have had dinner here multiple times and each an every time i get the same phenominal service and great recomodations to dine from your hard working servers. I would gladly recommend Park Avenue to friends and family and i have sent multiple people to Park Avenue especially for dinner."

  • "This is one of the best restaurants in Orange County. It has very reasonable prices considering the excellence of the gourmet cuisine. A big plus is that they grow their own vegetables and herbs in a garden on the premises. They also have a second, even more romantic restauraunt in the back by the garden called Il Garage (seperate reservation system). We've tried most of the menu and have found everything perfect each time we've visited. Highly recommend."

  • "We ordered the filet and mac and lobster, the lobster must have gone south as there was not even a small piece in the dish. The steak was cooked to perfection and very good."

  • "We have driven by Park Ave and never seen anyone there and I don't know anyone who has gone there. Larry my husband and I wanted to go out for a date and we both wanted steak. We looked up on Open Table mobile and found Park Ave, we read the menu and decided to make reservations. I am so glad we did the food was outstanding, service was outstanding. I have food allergies and I let the waitress know and she found out that what I wanted I could eat. I am allergic to bell peppers and onions. About 75 % of restaurants hate me for this and I get attitude about this. They were fantastic and I will gladly go back as well as recommend this to my friends and family."

  • "I took my family for dinner while they were in town. My husband and I eat here regularly and have always sat indoors. This time, since it was a bit loud in the restaurant, we asked to be seated on the patio. The food was excellent! The kids enjoyed it and were still talking about it days later. They loved the "bacon and eggs" which are deviled eggs with a sweet cured bacon. The caeser was a bit too fishy but the heirloom tomato salad was perfect. Everything here is fresh from the garden and you can taste it. The prices are a bit high but so is the quality."

  • "Our order, when received had a substitution we were not aware of. We asked about the change. We were told they had run out of what we had ordered so a substitution was made without advising us. My steak, requested "medium" came very raw. The waiter took my steak and did not return with it until my wife was done with her entire dinner and I had eaten (I was hungry) my side dishes minus the steak. My steak, when returned, was over cooked burned top and bottom and was subsequently very dry. I ate the steak by itself. At no time did a manager come to our table to discuss the poorly cooked steak. Overall, the waiter was friendly but not attentive. The food was not worth the price and the restaurant was very noisy. I would not go back again."

  • "the look of the restaurant is 1960's supper club, very cool vibe, but this one is special. It has it's own on-site garden. we ate inside but the outside patio dining looked nice as well, kind of romantic. we ordered the greens appetizer, very unusual and everyone liked it. the tomato soup was the best I have ever had - outstanding! my husband had the filet, simply delicious. I had the chicken which was also very good. our guests ordered the porterhouse and the NY strip, not sure they were as happy with those choices as we were with ours. waiter did forget to tell my husband that the green beans he ordered with his steak were unavailable but otherwise really attentive service. dessert was good as well. I would recommend and we will return."

  • "Ever since my birthday bash at Park with 40 plus people 7 years ago, it's great to see Park Ave is even better. Monsour the GM does a fantastic job of keeping everything running smooth, remembers us every time even though we been a while. Food is tops and the wine list too good to choose just one. Check out the healthy herb garden that David Slay has at the back. New addition is the "Il Garage" Italian dishes to die for. We will look forward to checking that out next time, but Park is our fav. We bought some friends and asked to sit out side as it was a nice balmy night quieter if you want to talk. Prices are up there but worth it if it's a special occasion. Cheers from an Aussie."

  • "Park Ave. has become our "go to" special occasion dining restaurant. The food is constantly outstanding under the direction of owner/Chef David Slay. Who would ever expect a restaurant of this quality to be located in Stanton? But it works for us and inevitably always an enjoyable experience."

  • "This is a great place for steak and anything veggie. Their steaks are top notch, cooked perfectly. The veggies are the freshest, a lot of them coming from their own garden on the property. Their dessert menu is short but everything on it is good, a must try is their in house made ice cream, that they make daily! Comfy booths, loungy decor, it's a warm, inviting place to have dinner. Their bread basket they start the meal of with is amazing, try not to fill up on them before your food even arrives! Definitely a place worth trying."

  • "We were seated in a patio area of metal tables with kitsch lime green chairs, though comfortable, on concrete adjacent to a lawn area. Would have been okay if not for steady parade of people/wait staff coming and going to the “il Garage” a detached dining area behind patio. Food was a disappointment starting with a side salad of limp iceberg lettuce with several pieces of radicchio ridiculously priced at $9 (a $1 McDonald’s salad would have been better). I had the pork shank, a little dry, but tasty on a bed of five small roasted potato wedges (grossly over-seasoned with salt) and a very small portion of fresh green peas. At the end, waiter had to record CC info on a blank piece of paper holding flash light because computer was down."

  • "Park Ave in Stanton, Ca, unbelievable great restaurant in the middle of a working class area. Our party had tomato basil soup, mixed green salad with blue cheese, lamb, swordfish, filet, lobster mac, banana cream pie, butterscotch pot, strawberry shortcake. Entrees awesome, wine awesome, desert awesome. Not one bad bite. Beautiful garden in the back. I am impressed with how large the property is, totally closed off from busy Beach Blvd. Would be beautiful for a wedding. Didn't eat at Il Garage, but next time for sure. Ambiance is lovely."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Salad first had all the worst bitter parts of lettuce, but they replaced it with an excellent one. First swordfish was not cooked completely, but they replaced it with one excellently done. Gave me desert for free. Most placed do not make that kind of effort."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "This was my second time here and I really don't understand all the hype about this place. The service was very slow and considering there was only one other table occupied there is really no excuse for the slowness. I ordered a glass of prosecco and upon receiving my bill found that I had been overcharged. I'd already paid and it was only a dollar overcharge I didn't make an issue of it. The food was bland and average at best. I don't think there will be a 3rd visit."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "I have been to Park Avenue eight or nine times previously and had to wait in the bar area until our table was ready. The bartender kept having to find to find a clean glass to use to pour a drink. I stood at the bar and waited a very long time to get a drink because every time a server came with an order, I waited and waited. A lady came by to help him and totally ignored me. I probably waited for at least 10 minutes."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • " As always the food is way above average. St Lois bacon on burger, fresh veggies from the garden, and seasonings are perfected to an art form. Pot pie is a special treat. Impeccable dining experience."

  • "The food was amazing and the service was very good. My only complaint was the noise level and the table next to us had a medium/large group with very loud children. I don't know why people bring small children who have not learned how to use their "indoor" voices to such a nice restaurant. I was treating my neighbor to dinner on Thursday night for all the nice things he's done for me. He and I were having trouble carrying on a conversation because of the loud young children - the parents/adults at the table were basically ignoring them. I don't know what Park Ave can do to prevent that in the future but it was unfortunate for myself and my neighbor."

  • "We went to Park Ave for our 10th anniversary based on a recommendation from a friend. She said not to judge by the outside (it a little tired). Glad we went! Amazing food and service. They also have their own fresh garden where you can stroll thru with your wine. Highly recommend for a special occasion or to impress business clients."

  • "Our visit did not meet Park Ave's usual standards. Our seating was a large table set right between two narrow aisles and the kitchen. Had they moved the table to one side we wouldn't have been getting bumped and pushed by passers-by. They weren't crowded so they didn't need to use that table. Our waitress needed more training. One cocktail we contemplated was made with sherbet of the day and when asked what flavor that was, we were told "you know, sherbet" and she couldn't be more specific (the dessert menu said it was orange sherbet). She couldn't get one of cocktails right after three tries. She forgot to take one person's order and basically ignored us: slow to take our order and bring dishes. Food was good, but pork steaks were tough."

  • "We were really looking forward to checking out Park Ave. My fish was excellent but the caprese salad with tomatoes from their garden that weren't ripe so it was lackluster. The reason that I will not return is that I told our waiter several times about my daughter's life threatening nut allergy. When he brought the bread basket, I asked him if there were nuts in the bread. He went back to the kitchen and checked - then he gave us the green light. After enjoying the bread, you can imagine how I felt to discover HALF OF A WALNUT sitting in the bottom of the basket. Had my three year old found that it could have been deadly. He said he was sorry but I just can't take the chance of dining somewhere where this could happen."
