The service was nice, but the food was a let down. There was no seasoning! Very bland! I ordered 5 different items, that included two entrees and it was all PLAIN.

Dining during the pandemic is a different experience. The restaurant was very quiet, our server was friendly and efficient, and there was a steady stream of take-out/delivery orders. This was our first time at Avenues Proper, and we were looking forward to it. The food came out of the kitchen quickly and at proper temperature, and over all was good. However, and this is actually a big deal, two of the three entrees were over-salted, specifically the bibimbap and the mushroom poutine. Half the salt, and I imagine the flavor of the dishes would have really bloomed! Our friend had the vegetarian burger (which she loved), but for some reason there were bacon bits somewhere in the dish. I would like to return, with fingers crossed that the chef goes easy on the salt.

The food was delicious, and I would have given the restaurant 5 stars if the poached eggs weren’t overcooked.

For the price, the portion of Beef Stroganoff was on the small side.

We got the BLT and the Brisket Sandwich. Both were excellent. We were worried about having a seat on the patio (because of covid), but getting there around 8pm on a Saturday was the perfect time. Plus, we got to listen to some live jazz being played at the chocolate shop next door. Perfect date night.

Passing through Salt Lake City with friends just the evening and was looking for a brewery restaurant. So unbelievably happy I found this. Food was amazing, versatile, and unique. And not overally priced!! I had the beef stroganoff with a kale Cesar salad. Best of both I've ever had. Also tried jalapeño cheddar hushpuppies as well as my friends red trout which was cooked to perfect. They home smoke their meats. You can get a 2oz sample of their beers on tap for $1. About 15 beers on tap and fluctuates. The FireCracker cocktail was delicious if you like a classic margarita with some heat. I wish I could have Avenue Proper in Buffalo, NY because I would definitely frequent the place.

Made a reservation and got there 5 mins before and were told they weren’t seating anyone for 30-45 more minute. When seated waiter said to us “Can I help you guys” in the most annoyed monotone voice possible. Didn’t see her for another 20 minutes to get drinks started. Forgot multiple items in our order.

This is usually one of our favorite restaurants but this experience was lackluster. There was nothing wrong with the food per se, it just wasn’t good. The rarebit fries were pretty good but I guess they don’t have bacon anymore which was a bummer. The stroganoff was just ok, the beef was a bit tough and bland. The steak was pre-sliced and not very hot when it got to me. It was fatty/chewy and bland. The greens that came with the steak were actually the best part of the meal. Usually I have a great experience here and don’t mind the price but the check felt like a gut punch after a fairly poorly executed meal.

Avenues Proper has always been a favorite for my wife and I. I am not sure what is going on with the overall restaurant industry, but, I am pretty sure, until things get back to “normal” I will NOT be going out and wasting money on just OK food and really really BAD service, with an attitude of “I really don’t want to be here”. Not really sure where the owners are during this time, but it shows that they are for sure NOT PRESENT!! I will be thinking good and hard about going back to Avenues Proper. It’s sad that it’s turned to this .

When we arrived there were two girls at the hostess stand, one was assisting someone. We waited what felt like a few minutes but was realistically probably just 1-2, neither person acknowledged us. I said hello, they both looked at us, and went right back to what they were doing. Another minute or so passed before she asked if we had a reservation. I confirmed and she asked if we specifically wanted outdoors, stating she would need to clear a table. (I understand turnover times depend on if tables camp or not, but when I have reservations I make sure the tables are set up before their arrival regardless.)
I told her I was cool with whatever was the most convenient for her, to which she gave me attitude and said something along the lines of “well what do you want”. We decided to just sit indoors as to not make her rush to clear a table, I’ve been in the weeds plenty of times, I get it.
We get seated, get waters, then nothing.
We waited a full 8 minutes and no one came to our table for drink or app orders.
This is the first time I’ve ever walked out of a restaurant as well as left a negative review.
When we left both girls were sitting at the hostess stand and thanked us as we walked out.

I hope we were the only guests who have had this experience and maybe just caught them on a bad day.

We love coming to Avenues Proper! We have never had a bad meal there, the service is always great, the drinks are also fantastic.

We were super impressed with how they are handling operations during the COVID-19 pandemic. Everything was super clean, everyone wore masks/gloves, and they wiped everything down as soon as a party left the table. Well done!! We’ll definitely consider going back there. We felt totally safe!!

Nice venue with a small neighborhood feel. Food was very good, we had fish and chips which were a very good version of the dish with thick cod fillets and a delicious generous burger. Easy parking in the premises.
Very good value for a casual night out.

I went out to dinner here with a friend. The hostess didn't speak to us while seating us, which was a little odd. However, our server was friendly and helpful with suggestions on what to order. Our food was delicious and the portion sizes were good. The bread of the day was amazing. We really enjoyed our meal here. I would go back again.

This is a brewpub. It is a stretch to call it a restaurant — limited variety and ordinary preparation.
