We really enjoyed our lunch at 4th Avenue Grill. The food was spot-on - tasty, reasonable, and a varied menu. Wine feature was fabulous and at a great price, and it wasn't too loud in there so my friend and I could actually talk without yelling. We will be back.

Everything was just ok, although our Server was very lovely and efficient. The kitchen does not know how to make a Rueben Sandwich. The sandwich had no sauerkraut and it was served on white bread. Who makes a Rueben with white bread? The menu on their website seems to have more food choices than the menu you receive in the restaurant.

It seemed as though our server wasn't listening ... when she asked my friend if she wanted a 6 oz or 9 oz wine, she said 6 oz. but was given 9 oz (as I was having 9 oz). I asked for extra hot sauce with my wonton soup, so the server asked my friend if she wanted extra as well ... she didn't ... she got extra ....

As a repeat customer, I had suggested 4th Avenue Lounge to my colleagues as a place to get together for a nice dinner and a little team building. The place was pretty empty but our area had been set aside ready for our arrival. Upon receipt of the menu it became pretty clear that it was quite different than the online menu. The new menu no longer had some of the items and the prices were higher than what we had remembered. However our waitress was able to accommodate us by allowing us to order similar items from their lunch menu or from the previous menu. We were a little disappointed as one person in our group had to re-order because the pulled pork poutine was no longer available. Unfortunately it was not told to her until the rest of our dinners started to arrive. She re-ordered the beef dip as it seemed like a simple item from the menu only to have to wait for it until everyone else had finished eating. She ended up taking it to go and not having to pay. All in all, while the food portions were pretty generous in size, the food quality was not as some of us remembered it.

First time there was during Stampede. The menu appeared to be standard bar food but the quality of the food was as good as I have had throughout the city. I had the Penne Arrabbiata and it was very good and reasonably priced. My dining partner's order came out wrong and the server quickly corrected it and waived the charge on his dinner. While not a fancy place this is a good alternative to other lunch spots in the area and a nice alternative. I will definitely be back.

The mushroom soup special was not very desirable, it seemed as though they dumped a can of Campbell's soup in a bowl, put it in the microwave for 30 seconds and sent it out. The smoked meat sandwich was a soggy mess, couldn't eat the bread, it was mushy, yuck. Won't be back...

Avec un laisser-passer (Meal Plan) en main, il n'y avait pas assez de places pour tout le monde. Personne ne nous a accueillis à l'arrivée et nous avons finalement demandé notre repas à la chambre. Nous avons donc soupé très tard et il y avait une erreur dans la commande. Sans l'aide de Chrissie, notre soirée aurait été une catastrophe...

The restaurant does not make it clear in its listing that it is in the International Hotel. It is a lounge in a hotel bar that serves good traditional lunch fare. It is a fairly extensive menu. We had a productive meeting with 3 people over lunch.

 (London)·Dined on May 21, 2014

Dinner was well presented and food good. Not a lot of people at time of eating made the dining experience somewhat lacking any atmosphere. Date of dining was a particularly warm day and perhaps more people dined out than usual.
Due to lack of diners the kitchen seem to shut down earlier than normal and we left before coffees were even offered.
Some confusion over the name of the restaurant. On the ground floor there is a bar which does food and in the basement there is the restaurant formerly called 4th Avenue Cafe and now called 4th Avenue Lounge - both names are perhaps a little misleading.

I took some customers here for lunch and we all agreed the cozy lounge atmosphere was great. It was easy for us to talk and to hear one another. I had the kale salad and it was fabulous. My associates had the french onion soup, the pulled pork sandwich and the clubhouse and we were all really happy with our lunches. The service was great and the price was reasonable. Because this place is in the International Hotel, I didn't realize it was there, so I am glad that Open Table pointed this neighbourhood gem out for me. I will definitely be back for more business lunches.

I love the beef dip here and I feel it is one of the best in the downtown core. Great place for a business lunch as noise levels are low enough you can carry on a discussion and hear each other. Service was prompt and welcoming. Will definitely be back.
