A friend and I had dinner there on the 18th. Everything was perfect. I had the 8 oz filet and my friend had some sort of fish pie that was packed with seafood including lobster and topped with mashed potatoes.

Outstanding!

A group of four of us had a pre-theater lunch at Avenue One on Saturday. The sandwiches, salads and soups were good. The desserts were only fair. Service was iffy. We didn't have a specific waiter and were approached by at least 4 different waiters and as many managers just passing by. There was no continuity of service and there were long periods when no one came by. We had to ask to have water refilled and then they only refilled one glass. They brought our check after the sandwiches without asking if we wanted coffee and dessert. We felt like an afterthought.

I had a very disappointing experience at Avenue One last Sunday. I took my 15 yo daughter to see Wicked, which was playing down the street in Boston. Unfortunately, the restaurant was very poor. Here are my real experiences, not exaggerated I assure you. They didn't have any menus; ignored us when we sat down; the food was mediocre; the waiter brought the wrong appetizer to me; after finishing, another waitress tried TWICE to give us the entrees belonging to another table! 2 other tables were so upset about the poor service that the manager had to apologize to them. No one asked us if the dinner was all right; they gave us the bill without asking if we wanted dessert or coffee. The entire staff acted like they didn't care.

My wife and I ate dinner at Avenue One on a recent Saturday prior to attending the show "WICKED" at the Boston Opera House across the street. Our reservation was for 5:30 and we were seated immediatly. The restaurant was only 1/3 full when we were seated but was full when we left 90 minutes later. We enjoyed our dinner very much and would definately eat there again, probably the next time we are attending a show in the theater district.

food was great....had to wait at the host stand for 10 minutes before being noticed....bartender and waitstaff walked by several times and ignored the host stand... I own a chef service and appreciated the food flavor profiles....only had one issue with the food...the tortilla chips that you serve with the spin/art dip, they are to salty and overpower the great flavors of the dip. for a saturday early evening in between theatre shows, they were understaffed, managers did help out alot for food running.....might return....

Went there before a show at the Opera House. Food was good but cold (I am ok with, didn't send it back since we were in time crunch), which I notified the waiter after the meal that mashed potatoes were cold and they were taken off the bill. The service was OK, not great, I put my drink order in twice and it still came back wrong. Overall, not bad, but I would go somewhere else next time.

We ate at Avenue One before a show at the Opera House. We arrived at 6:00 and were seated promptly; our waiter has menus and water to us quickly and implored us to order quickly so that we would have plenty of time to make the show. We heeded his warning and ordered quickly...and then waited, waited, and waited some more. Our appetizers weren't delivered until 6:50! Once the food started coming it all came quickly and we left in time to make the show, but we were rushed to get through. That being said, the food was great--the crabcakes were out of this world. The server was pleasant, as well--I think the holdup was the kitchen, not on his part. We may return again (for the crabcakes!), but would not do so on a theater night.

We were attending a show at the Opera House later in evening and thought we'd try Avenue One, since it 's so close and offers discounted parking validation, if you eat there. The food was good, the restaurant nicely laid out to afford privacy. The wait staff could have been a little more attentive, but overall it was a pleasant experience and we will try it again.

This restaurant was a good choice for a pre-theatre meal. Avenue One has a pre-theater menu that was priced very reasonably for a hotel restaurant. The wine pairing option was also very nice and the house red wines were good quality. Nice setting/ ambience. Conveniently located near Opera House with special pricing in the parking lot for theatre-goer's, whcih was a pleasant added bonus.

The location was convenient as we were going to theatre. We had never been there before and thought the menu selections were great. We all enjoyed our meal though we all agreed a little less salt in the food (especially the broccolini and the sauce with the steak). This did not stop us from eating everything. We especially liked the fact that we were able to get our dessert after the show (on the pre-theatre menu). The staff were very accommodating considering we had a last minute addition to our reservation. Service was good but a bit slow coming out of the kitchen.

We chose Avenue One because it was close to the theater we were going to and we knew the restaurant had a reasonably priced pre-theater menu. Avenue One more than met our expectations: a good menu; well-prepared, attractive meals; pleasant, tasteful setting; and superb service. I will definitely go back.

This restaurant is only in business because it is located in the Hyatt. My husband and I had a 6PM reservation for dinner before we went to the theater. The waiter asked if we were seeing a show which I thought was a good sign that they knew we had to leave by 7:20.The waiter came back at 6:20 with our drinks. At 7:10 there was still no meal! My dinner that night consisted of pretzels and water at the theater--we never got our dinner and neither did the table in front of us. We all walked out. The restaurant was not busy at all, but we were told that the kitchen was backed up! I think open-table needs to drop this restaurant as our evening was ruined and I wouldn't have even known about this place if I didn't use Open Table.

Enjoyed the pre-theater pre-fixe and was pleasantly surprised at the generous size and wonderful freshness of the salad. Main course cod was tasty and nicely balanced with brocollini and mashed potato. Good value; especially with wine pairing.

Fabulous restaurant for when attending a performance at either the Paramount or the Opera House. Excellent and attentive service. Wonderful presentation of each dish. Pleased with the ambiance, service and the meal and the location can't be better. Very reasonably priced for Boston. The menu covered everything for all tastes and palettes. I usually have a hard time finding a restaurant that will meet my expectations as well as my teenage daughter's, but this restaurant pleased both of us (a rare occurrence I can assure you).

You can certainly find a better place. The food was not hot, and it was not even that good. It was average at best. To pay that much money for food that was that subpar is embarrassing for the restaurant. They even tried to make it presentable on the plate, and they failed pretty badly at that. The atmosphere tried to be romantic and grand, but it was a pretty uncomfortable setting, just awkward tables and chairs. Look elsewhere.

What a great place to have a nice quiet romantic dinner before going to a show. Less than a block from the Opera House Avenue One was perfect. Quiet, great service, great food. Plus a great Pre fixe theater menu.

Our night was fine, but not memorable. The service was VERY slow and not attentive at all. The bus boys refilled our water, but the waiter served each course and never appeared in between. We had a party of 6 and 4 arrived early. we were seated immediately, as the restaurant was pretty empty. We told our waiter that we were going to the theater-still had 2 and 1/2 hours for dinner)yet everything was slow to come out! We ordered from the Theater menu. The choices were cod, beef and chicken. Most of the portions were fair sized, except the fish, which was very small. We had to ask for bread and a bit came out, but when the other 2 friends came, the bread was gone and never replenished. The appetizers took 20 minutes!we were late for our show

If you are going to an event at the Opera House you can't beat the location. Despite being there on a Sunday, the George's Banks cod was fresh and well prepared. Service was attentive until a party of 10 in the same room received their entrees. The smaller tables were ignored until the larger party was completely served despite having several wait staff in the area.

The pre-theatre prix fix menu was adequate. The risotto was over-cooked, the ice cream tasted like wax and the cheesecake was unmemorable. My biggest complaint was about the parking. A link on your website sent me to Central Parking for a discount coupon which was not useable because the theatre was considered an "event" and $20 event parking was in effect. I could have parked at the HYatt for $10, but that info was not on the website.

Loved the quiet elegance of the dining area; service was very attentive but not overbearing. The first courses on the Restaurant Week menu (clam chowder or foccacia) were delicious and a very large potion; steak main course a little tough but dessert was delicious. I will look forward to returning again.

I highly recommend this hotel restaurant. The flat iron steak appetizer with chimmichurri sauce was perfectly cooked and delicious. The shrimp & scallop ceviche was a perfect compliment to the flat iron steak appetizer. My wife recommends the Fisherman's Pie which is stuffed with scallop, lobster, swordfish and shrimp.
