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 ambiance and delicious food. The menu is reminiscent of a San Francisco-style bar and grill with Asian and Italian influences.

So sorry to see how far one of my favorite places has fallen. Carpet was not vacuumed, restroom in need of serious cleaning and no paper hung for those using it. Tables need their tablecloths back and the lights need to be turned down low for this old dame of Denver dining.

Everything was great as always! The only thing is I feel the Avenue Grill is feeling a little less “accessible” since the prices have gone up on everything. I’ve been going here for 15 years and will still continue to go but just not going to go as often because of the price. Don’t misunderstand, I regularly spend lots of money on great dining experiences I just feel they are pricing themselves a little over what they should be.

The accommodations were great. The bar is a mix of old style with class. The food is quality, and the service is great. I would recommend to anyone looking for a genuine experience.

Have been going here for years and enjoy the location and sitting in the window watching the people go by. It has always been consistently good. Great Martini.

The restaurant is in a beautiful old building - worth a visit for that alone! The hostess was very accommodating when I changed the size of our group when we arrived for our reservation (my bad...) Our server was very knowledgeable regarding both the bar and the food. The food was very well prepared. We tried the tuna, pork chops, burgers, and stroganoff. The only complaint was from the tuna plate - she said it was so good that she was forced to eat it all!!!!!

The Avenue Grill is located in a very historical building, which makes the ambiance quaint and demonstrating lots of character. The restaurant was able to accommodate our group of 8 quite nicely. However, even though they were not busy, they would not take a lunch reservation earlier than 12:30. Perhaps it is a scheduling thing with the staff and kitchen. Our staff person was very good and brought out orders at the same time.

Avenue Grill never fails to deliver great food and great service. A Denver classic worth re-visiting time and time again.

We have had lovely dinners at Avenue Grill in the past. Had not visited in last 5 years. On a recent Saturday evening there were no tablecloths, no candles, ordinary presentation of food and mis-matched flatware; plus no notice that the dinner was for my birthday. Nervous about a return visit or a recommendation.

Because of terrific past experience, this is difficult to write.

Food and service consistently amazing! It is a gem and worth the splurge. The only drawback is the place was quite cold.

They always make us feel special and are so sweet. The lamb chops were perfect and the bison ribeye was as well.

Have always enjoyed outings at Avenue Grill. Waitperson was pleasant and attentive without being intrusive. Especially enjoy sitting by the windows. Wine was house and very acceptable. The vegetables were excellent. Cooked just enough. Pleased that the mashed potatoes came with skins. Steak had very good taste but I would prefer just a bit more tender. I don't like rare so I always order medium, but sometimes that just isn't tender enough for me. However, I know I am not a steak afficionado and can be really picky. Most would have probably found it very good. Prices are always reasonable. Overall, no major complaints. I would recommend and return myself with guests.
