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.

We had a very pleasant meal here. The fish was very fresh, well cooked and nicely presented. We were there on a quiet day and time, so I can’t speak to before or after theater with authority but would try it.

Went for a quick dinner before the theater and it was great. Nice selection, quick service, in same building as where I park for the Opera House and only a half a block away. And it wasn't insanely loud and busy. I will go again.

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.

We had a 1 1/2 hour to eat before sound of music. Almost no one in the restaurant. After we ordered dessert - we waited at least 15 min. Had to eat 2 bits and run to show, just barely in time. Frustrating.

We just had brunch before a matinee at the theater across the street. Loved the decor and atmosphere. Brunch food was very average. The omelette was made to order and enjoyable.

Would like to go back and try it for dinner. It
was a quiet and romantic atmosphere. Hope the food at dinner is more imaginative.

If you're going to the Opera House for any production, start your evening off right with a meal at Avenue One. You can get really light fare or a more substantial dinner. On this particular night, my dining companion and I both ordered the haddock with asparagus. Perfect portion, delectably done. And the bonus, there's parking in the building and it is directly across the street from the Opera House-- it just couldn't be more convenient than that.

Good spot for a quick pre show bite to eat, its directly above Lafayette place parking and less than a block to Boston opera house. The menu is brief, just a few entrees plus sandwiches and salads. Dinner salads are good and large. I had Cobb salad, nice assortment of veggies/protein and very nice light vinaigrette. My companion had Caesar salad, it was also good. Sharing portions of sides are small for the cost.
Excellent service, attentive, friendly and efficient. They do a good job monitoring time to ensure you make the show.

We weren't going to go because it is in a hotel (Hyatt) but the proximity to the theater and farm to table aspect of it was intriguing. It is what it represented, a pleasant place to enjoy dinner in the middle of the theater district. Would definitely do it again. Another plus, particularly in the winter is that it is accessible from the parking garage from inside. We left our heavy coats in the car, had dinner & walked across the street for the show.
