A word from Avenue Grill - Denver
The Avenue Grill is renowned for its award-winning martinis, wine list, friendly bartenders and a welcoming, inimitable style.
The Avenue is a favored lunch and dinner destination among the uptown Denver business crowd, as well as a popular neighborhood bar and grill. What attracts them is the unpretentious, superior service, comfortable ambience and delicious food. The menu is reminiscent of a San Francisco-style bar and grill with Asian and Italian influences.

    GREAT setting in a forgotten part of the wonderful DOWNTOWN area of DENVER. Very nice restaurant with lots of light and room! FOOD was outstanding but a little slow on the bartender with the drinks! Great waitress and hostess! Will visit it again, that is for sure.

    We requested boxes for leftovers of two entrees, going to two different households. The boxes were mislabeled and went home with the wrong people. This was not a big deal for us, just wanted to mention it.

    We enjoy the Roast Beef Monday once in awhile. There are so many restaurants on 17th to enjoy, so AG's food seems a little basic considering how many top notch and new places there are to eat in the neighborhood.

    It was the first time we'd been there, and we loved it! The cocktails were generous, the mussels were plump and delicious, the calamari was outstanding, our entrees were across-the-board terrific, and the wine suggestion was right on. And on top of it, our waitress was great. Fun night, and we'll head back sometime soon!

    I will recommend the Ave. Grill to all my friends. The location is great and they offer free parking across the street. We started with a Seared Ahi Tuna appetizer and Green Tea Martinis. Wow, were they good. And the dinner was fantastic (grilled salmon and prime rib special). It's great place if you're looking for an eccelctic menu of wonderful treats. Oh, and I forgot to mention, the bread pudding is decadent.

    They did have a great vegetarian menu! The only thing I did not like was that they cooked the salmon well done which made me question how fresh it was. Server was helpful and timed out our service perfect.
