It was overpriced for what we got. The food wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t as good as the other times I went. The service was good, but slow.

Had the Cassoulet special, which was very tasty, but small portion. Should have been $17 not $27. The place was very lively and it's great that there are thriving pubs in Salt Lake neighborhoods. Wish there were more.

Off nights happen. I've been to Avenues Proper many times and usually the service is spot on. We had several items, one food, and three drinks, that had problems. Fortunately the food and the rest of the staff made up for it. The greeters are happy and upbeat, gave us updates on our waiting time, etc. The house made pickle offering has never disappointed. Will definitely go back, but would request a different server next time.

I had a great burger, excellent fries and a very good tap beer. The place has lots of parking but the outside dining did not work well on a cooler day. There was no crowd on a Friday lunch at 1.

Love this place because of the fabulous food and friendly staff. Our only disappointment is the scarcity of outdoor seating. We made a reservation and requested an outdoor table but had to sit inside due to lack of availability outside. Other people appeared to be in the same situation. Hope they can fix this because it’s otherwise a great place!

I describe Proper as an upscale brew pub, with both better food and better beer than most others. The superb service is what made this three-hour lunch with a friend from out of town so great, plus I'd forgotten how good Proper beers are! I was a little surprised that the Spicy Chicken Sandwich was some kind of ground chicken rather than a chicken breast, but the taste was very good anyway. My wife's BLT was good too. We sat outside for three hours on a beautiful afternoon and had just the right amount of attention; the water was refilled frequently, and our server was nearby often enough for us to order additional food items and another beer.

Great, casual atmosphere, very friendly staff-- our party size kept changing, and didn't want the high-top seating they had reserved for us. They quickly and pleasantly accommodated us by switching to lower tables and chairs. Food choices were unique, well prepared and hot! Will definitely return!

Waited very long time to be greeted once seated (excess of 15 minutes). Waiter was very cordial but speed of service only improved marginally. Thankfully the food was delicious and well-priced. Perhaps a subsequent visit would be better.

One of the best veggie burgers I've ever had -- it held together throughout, which is not typical. And it was tasty. The fries were great and my husband's cold cantaloupe soup was quite tasty and perfect for the hot day. He wasn't enthralled with the kale chicken salad because it was, as its name implies, kale and chicken, and not much else, but it was our waitress's favorite so if you like kale I'm sure you'd like it. But if you want a multi-ingredient salad, not so much.

We have visited this, one of my favorite restaurants, on both Mother’s Day and Father’s Day this year. Somehow they seemed completely overwhelmed on both of these days. We had a 10:15 reservation and the manager/hostess was still printing menus. The hostess then scolded the waiting customers for “lining up” incorrectly. We were pointed to our table, not sat. The food also took 45 minutes to arrive after ordering.

Our server was awesome. The food was good as always but again at one point the same manager came and literally grabbed the water bottles off of our table without saying anything. No offense but I feel like she must have experience managing a village inn, not a place like this. Her job is to make customers feel comfortable and both times she’s done the exact opposite. She acted like we and the other customers celebrating Father’s Day, were bugging her.

Great place, apparently not for days like those. We won’t be back.
