First time, amazing time
I was super impressed by this restaraunt, this is the first time I ever went here and I was blown away by the amazing food and service. I was recommended to come here by a good friend of mine after he went to the brunch here and had an amazing experience and I regret nothing. The service was superior compared to all of the restaraunts I had recently went too. The chef even came to my table to talk to me in person, he did the same for many others as well. The food was just delicious and wonderfully flavored. I look forward to coming to this neighborhood gem again because I'm sure it will be yet another great experience.

This is a hidden gem! The welcome was fantastic and all of the staff members were extremely pleasant and accomodating, several going above and beyond. Th place itself is small but comforting and the food was flavorful(especially the pasteries-which they make in-house fresh daily YUMMY!!) They even make eggs to,order not just omelets(how fantastic is that)!
This is a must visit brunch location, the price is right, the service devine, food delicious. I give it an A+. My mom is wheelchair bound and they went out of the way to accomodate her and paid her extra attention. WOW!

I had a great time at this restaraunt, the food was excellent and the ambiance was great. The restaraunt jut underwent some major renovations so the place looked amazing. The service was extremely good. The waiters were very kind and pacient and knew a lot about the menu. I had a question about some of the food and the chef personally came out to talk to me. I had a great time at this restaraunt and would recommend it for anyone.

Holiday Inn Ave Cafe Bar and Grill
Our family dined at Avenue Cafe Bar and Grill for their Mother's Day brunch. Upon arrival we were immediately seated at a table reserved with my name on it. This was a nice personal touch. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Very nice that the manager took time to stop by each table to ensure customers dining experience was going well. The food was good and included the typical buffet offerings, including an omelet and meat carving station. Mimosas and champagne was included in the buffet price. Our only complaint was the pancakes and waffles on the buffet were cold and a little hard. The cafe should consider only preparing waffles/pancakes as patrons orders them. Overall the food and service was very good.

They always make us feel like family at Avenue Cafe. That is why we keep coming back.

Gem hidden in a hotel
The menu is very extensive and I had a hard time picking just one thing. The portions are substantial and the value is exceptional. The ribs were very fatty, but that was my only bone to pick (so to speak). Recommended.

A nice surprise
We had spent the day volunteering for the One Million Bones installation on the National Mall, we were returning to our hotel , and passed the Avenue Cafe and Bar. Quite tired from the activities of the day, we decided to make a reservation there, since it was only a block from where we were staying. What a nice surprise ! We were warmly greeted by the staff, seated immediately, and ordered our beverages. Our order consisted of the pasta special, as well as ,the braised short ribs. Both meals were excellent, with the short ribs being among some of the best I have had. The servers were quite attentive without being overbearing. We would definitely dine at the Avenue again.

The food was amazing and the brunch was plentiful. It also came with a great value, with unlimited mimosas the price was great. The only problem was the restaraunt itself, the chairs are beat up and the carpet is worn out, it would be a great place if it was not so tarnished. Side note the place was uncomfortably warm and the management said that the ac would be fixed soon, so I hope it was due to the fact that it was really hot. Otherwise, the place was great the only downside was the ambiance,the servers were kind and the food was really delicious

The was a new menu (as advertised) was amazing, and the food was extremely good, very flavorful. The service was top-notch and I had a great time here, it truly is a neighborhood gem. I have heard a lot of good things about the Sunday brunch here so I look forward to trying that out as well. After their newer renovations the place looks amazing, the tables are beautifully decorated and set-up. Everything, even the bar has been completely upgraded...would recommend this place to anyone

Quiet and Unassuming
A nice little place....near the Logan Circle area and away from the downtown area. But a good find. Very pleasant and quiet with good food at an extremely reasonable price. If you want to get away from the downtown DC madness, give this place a try. A very personable staff will greet and take care of you. We enjoyed ourselves.
