Food was great! It was my girlfriends birthday, so we had special occasion to celebrate. She loves calamari, but only the rings. Our server made sure that we only got the rings.. and they were seasoned perfectly! Dessert was served with the "Happy Birthday" written in raspberry. Great m=night and great time!

This is the second time we have been to Avenue One. The service was great. We went to the Nutcracker at 7:30 after dinner. Parking was easy. And the food was excellent. All of us had a wonderful time. The location is perfect for going to the opera house.

We had a group of 10, with four young children for brunch before the Nutcracker ballet. The staff was wonderful, the breakfast perfect and fresh fruit and omelets and pancakes. Highly recommend especially since you can also park at the hotel and walk to the ballet!

Beautiful setting for a family gathering.We ordered the Irish Nachos with waffle fries. Everybody loved them. The baked fish was fabulous. Fresh baked bread at the table was so good and they brought more. My vegan daughter loved her dish. Definately will go again. Great location with parking below.

Our waitress MaryAnn seemed new at her job, but was friendly, courteous and attentive. Menu offers a good variety of items at prices moderate to downtown Boston. We had allowed 2 hours to dine early before seeing "Hamilton" at the Opera House and it was plenty of time to have a relaxing dinner. House bread offering is very good, but the olive oil/balsamic vinegar mixture served with it was bland. The cobb salad was good, as was the spinach artichoke flatbread pizza. We were happy with our wine choices and especially enjoyed the after dinner coffee and pumpkin cheescake dessert.

Pre theater dinner with another couple. They have a special menu with tgeatervrelated items which was cool to see. Service was prompt and friendly; all of our entrees were very good and the apps were too. They asked if we were going to the show when we arrived and made sure we had time to get there after the meal.

This place is merely just average in my book. Burger was overcooked (same burger at next table over was undercooked), and the bun was cold. It took a while to get served throughout the meal. Ambiance is decent, but the food doesn't fit the surroundings unfortunately.

Food was just ok and service less than ok. Ordered a baked potato and it came cold and with the dish for butter empty. Someone else had french fries at the table and it took forever to get some ketchup. Lastly, we went there pre-theater - 6pm reservation, 8pm show...we ordered in plenty of time and were served in a timely fashion, but it took forever to get the bill, pay and get out of there...where we almost missed the start of the show!

Avenue One was a great pleasant surprise. We were looking for a restaurant near The Opera House and came across Avenue One on line. Reservation made 2 weeks in advance on Open Table. Wonderful night! Top shelf from beginning to end. Bartender, hostess, waitress, food, cocktails, ambiance, proximity to theater, could not have been more perfect. We also got 20% off the price of food because we had purchased the 6 show theater package through Broadway Across Anerica. BONUS!!!
This restaurant will be our "go to" from now on!

Several items on the menu to suit diet restriction which was a huge plus for this restaurant. However, drinks were pretty bad and way overpriced for the portion. Mixed drinks were very watered down and the wine pours are metered, this very small for the amount you are paying per glass. I would go back for food if I needed a bite, but not for drinks.

This is the second time I've gone here before a show at the Opera House. Both times, I've had the same terrible experience. Clearly, the restaurant does not know how to hire & properly train its waitstaff. On both occasions the waiter (not the same people) didn't understand the drink order. Rather than speaking with the bartender (who presumably would know) they came back to the table to say they didn't understand or that they didn't have what was ordered. This week, my companion ordered a Red Sangria. The waitress returned saying they didn't carry that wine. It's on the menu; shouldn't the waiter know the menu? On both occasions, we ordered an appetizer and then each order an entree. On both occasions, they waiter had no memory of the appetizer order. This time, a gentleman (in a suit) delivered our steak knives and noticed my Broadway in Boston card. I advised that we did have tickets and hoped we'd get our meal - starting with appetizer - fairly quickly. The waitress re-appeared and said something to the effect of "oh, you ordered an appetizer? I didn't remember that". Then she appears and says our meals are ready and the app is shortly to come, do we want the app delivered first or all together. I would have canceled the app at that point but my friend wanted to try it. So, all was delivered. I had ordered the (A) steak frites, my friend the (B) other steak dish with mashed potatoes/veg. The waitress delivered two of the B dishes, no steak frites for me. At this point, time was of the essence so I accepted the dish. I did ask "you will do what for us?" and she said she'd comp the dish. I did ream her out a bit - suggesting she needed to write down orders if she can't remember them. She eventually said something about it having been a long weekend. Anyway, she comped 50% of the bill, so that was something. But, I'd never go again or recommend the place. $35 entrees deserve better service. The food is okay (it was much better last time). Not worth the hassle.

My husband & I went here for an early dinner before a performance at the Boston Opera House (the theater is half a block away if that is helpful for any of you to know). The restaurant is elegant, comfortable, and quiet. It was easy for us to hear each other so we were able to enjoy our conversation. My husband had the baked scrod and thought it was wonderful. I ordered two appetizers for my dinner, the crab cakes and the chicken dumplings. Both dishes were flavorful and delicious. Be aware that the dumplings come with sriracha sauce which is killer hot, and maybe you like that but, if not, you can order the sauce on the side or none at all, which is what I did. The dumplings are plenty tasty alone. Our waiter, Abdul, was super attentive, friendly, and efficient, which made the meal all the more pleasant. Altogether it was a very positive experience. We will go back.

The waiter did not come to my table. I had to go request a manager and a menu. When he showed and I wanted to order off the menu he told me to go to the buffet and get it myself.

I was trying to order al a cart which was an available option. I never received service. Completely humiliated by the experience.
