We have been going here for years. The menu really needs an expansion or overhaul. Can only order the burger and waffle/chicken so many times. It’s good and nice beer selection.
We enjoyed mother's day brunch with reservations. First time there, we all loved the baked goods and sweets. No expresso service. I did think the biscuits and gravy was too sweet (gravy was too sweet). No complaints tho.' We will eat there again no doubt.
Great food, great drinks, great service!
We sat on the bar side this visit which is great for an intimate dinner. The table is a little small so pro tip-ask for the water bottle to stay at the bar or set it on the ledge on the wall. I love the variety of house beers they have and the daily bread has never disappointed.
Went here with high expectations based on a friends recommendation, but was pretty disappointed. The service was not attentive, food arrived very slowly and was warm but not hot. Three of the four dishes that were served to our group were mediocre at best. The beef stroganoff was quite good; The veggie burger was very pedestrian; the gnocchis Were bland; the portion sizes were small. Not a terrible experience, but I can think of no compelling reason to return.
This was my second visit and the service was much improved! The manager, Jackie, reached out after my first review in February 2019 offering a $20 gift card to give it another try. Keep in mind our first experience wasn't terrible; the service was just not on point.
This visit my dining companion ordered the fish and chips and I had the mussels and frites; we both enjoyed our meals and we finished with the pavlova...pavlova was excellent! The curd was tart and the crunch of the meringue was exactly as you would expect at a French restaurant- kudos to the kitchen at the Avenues Proper.
Our waiter was busy but attentive and our courses were cleared promptly. The cocktails were good as well.
Good food but limited vegan options for friends and family that follow these diets.
Overall very good. The staff was attentive & the food tasty. We would go back to celebrate another birthday.
Went for Saturday brunch! Food was delicious and strong Bloody Marys.
We had a large party, 8 of us, so maybe that was the problem. We had a reservation and we got right in. Our server was great, but our entire dining experience took 2 1/2 hours! After waiting over an hour for entrees, the food came out barely warm. The person who ordered chicken for her salad got her meal long after everyone else's came out. Our server apologized profusely and they did not charge us for desserts to try to make up for it. It was obviously a kitchen problem that night, but people around us kept coming and going. Kind of frustrating! Might give them another chance, but might not.
Excellent all around!
Fantastic, creative menu. Wonderful service. Cool, hip vibe. Awesome beer selection!
I eat here a lot with my family. The standard menu items (burger, veggie burger, chicken & waffles, etc.) are always quite good. Apart from that, some items have been extraordinarily good over the years , and generally I would rate the place highly. Recently, though, the seasonal menu items have taken a sharp downturn. I don’t know if they have a new chef or something, but the food has been very over salted on my last two visits - and I generally love salt more than others. There was a smoked trout dip that was pretty terrible, and a way-too-salty miso soup. Hopefully this trend won’t continue for too long.
We ate dinner at Avenues Proper on the night of St. Patrick's Day. We had a great waiter, who was attentive friendly and helpful even though the restaurant was packed. I had a question about a cocktail, which he answered in a helpful way. The food was good - my son-in-law had the corned beef dinner which was excellent. Service was a little slow but again, it was St. Patrick's Day. My only complaint was the level of noise.
Great atmosphere and staff, beautiful interior, great vibe, but food was disappointing, especially for the price point. I asked about recommendations and popular items to have their best experience and was disappointed. I likely won't return because none of our party loved their food and I've had other meals with great overall dining experiences at different locations around SLC.
Love Avenues Proper - great cocktails (gin & tonic is awesome!) beer, appetizers (Kung Pao cauliflower & Proper poutine are highly recommended)), entrees & desserts!
Go, you will not be disappointed!
Food was too salty. Close to inedible. We won't return.
The service was overly exuberant as the entrees arrived before we had a chance to eat our appetizers.
The food was unique and delicious. You can’t beat the $3 mimosa and Bloody Mary’s. Friendly and attentive service
Nice surprise as they have a wonderful Sat and Sun brunch. Excellent Bloody Mary’s. Service was outstanding.
Great food options and a convivial atmosphere; we ate on the bar side; it is small and intimate. The burger was very good but was ordered well done and came out medium. The fried fish was excellent and the fresh fries were quite good as well. The cocktails were meh. The special dessert was okay but the cheddar ice cream wasn’t my favorite; I felt it would have been better with vanilla or cinnamon.
My biggest issue was service; it appeared they were under staffed as often we had empty glasses or plates sitting on our small table for longer than expected.
The proper is a short walk down the hill from our home and NEVER disappoints!
Enjoyed a quick bite before a show. Cocktails were nice (one of the better gin and tonics I have had). Started with frites and pickles. Meatloaf sandwich was very tasty. The others in the group had a burger and a salad. Good eats for a pretty casual dining experience.
Perfect date night for my Husband and I. The Valentine’s Menu items were delicious, and the in house beers are fantastic. We will definitely be back.
Absolutley amazing food! Can’t wait to go back to try more of the menu.
Great beer and cocktail selection. Enjoyed the experience, service and food.
Amazing restaurant and food.
Really nice and fun atmosphere. Great beer and food selection. Fits the hipster scene well.
I love the flavor of their food; nothing tastes ordinary!
Service was pretty good. The place was packed but to be expected for Sunday brunch. Food was great. Service was a little slow on drinks and food did not come out all at the same time ( there was 6 of us)but not a deal breaker. We will be back.
All of their food is great but their specials are always amazing!
Appetizers were great entrees where a little lacking. Mushroom ragu was good but the portion was tiny especially compared to the fish and chips.
The food was really good but pricey and portions were small. This was dinner time. The brunch is excellent the last time we went but also a bit pricey.
The food and service was great! Loved the unique cocktails and our server was supper friendly and didn’t mind us just sitting and chatting for a few hours.
Always love Avenues Proper! It is on our list of favorites, and they never disappoint!
Service was a little off for the Brunch this past Sunday..Mimosas and Bloody M took a while to come by but was really good.
Sunday brunch, good food great value and attentive service
Expensive food but average quality. Mine must have sat out on counter awhile. Waiter on auto-pilot to the point of being rude. Disappointing, especially since we’ve always liked their beer.
