Overall I would say that we enjoyed our meal at Avenues Proper. A couple of people ordered the steak and it was about on par with its price point. ($25) The cauliflower tacos and beet salad were highlights along with the burger. Get the seasonal pickles as well, really good.

Multiple excellent food options (vegetarian, sandwiches, salmon, steak) for essentially any/ every palate, prepared creatively and served efficiently. Locally brewed beer adds to the fun. Prices are very reasonable.

Food was great as always, unfortunately our waiter seemed to forget about us entirely. Had to ask for water three times and finally got water after about 30 minutes. He also dropped the bill before we were even done ordering another drink. I told him I’d be happy to pay the bill, but would like more drinks. I paid the bill and tipped him 20%, so to be completely ignored after that is kind of a slap in the face. It’s never fun going out and feeling like your server ignores you.

What a great overall experience! The food was fantastic and great for the price. My drink, the Leviathan was refreshing and perfect with my meal. Our server was very attentive, but not overly so, very friendly and helpful. There is no question we will be back and have been telling our friends they must check this place out!

Best place for lunch!! I made a reservation last minute, hoping that we could get in. We were going to an early lunch, and what a great place Avenues Proper was!!! In entering you have a wonderful ambiance with the design of the restaurant and the charming employees!! Everyone was so pleasant and happy, which always makes my experience better! The food was so delicious!! I was with my very picky teenage son, who was not happy to be going to a new restaurant, and he was sooo impressed with his food that he didn’t even want to share it with me!! He had the ham and cheese sandwich with fries, and he wouldn’t allow me to taste his sandwich, but I did try some fries and WOW!!! I will be back this weekend for the fish and chips to have more of those fries and their sauce!! I had the cauliflower tacos, as I was trying to eat healthy, and I was amazed at how great they were!!! They had a wonderful flavor!!! I’m excited to take my vegetarian friends there to try them!! All in all, I love it and will be back often!!

As always, food and service were top notch. Beer is outstanding, usually get the Proper, but also a big fan of the Irish Red Stout "nitro". Set reservation and made a note that we needed a wheelchair accessible table. The hostess saw is coming up to the door, came out to meet us and already had an easily accessible table ready and waiting. At times, some restaurants treat the disabled as if they are a chore. We felt welcomed and eager to earn our repeat dollars. Highly recommend this place!

Friendly staff, good brunch menu option with mimosas or bloody Mary's. It was quick turn around on our order which was great in taste and no complaints. They can probably sit a couple of large groups (my party had 7) but I would recommend making a reservation for group over 4 or 5.

I had the ham & cheese sandwich, and it was a pretty hefty portion-could only finish half of it. The butternut squash soup my dining companion had was also very good. Ther server was friendly and accommodating. My favorite thing about the visit, however, was the piped-in music...classic rock--loved every song...really elevated the dining experience.

Enjoyable meal with great service! Had a salmon special and it was prepared perfectly. It was absolutely delicious. Service was helpful and friendly. I didn't have any of their beers, so I can't speak about those but my dinner partner enjoyed the spruce. Will be back!

Opentable let's you book in at 8:45 or 9pm, but their kitchen closes at 9. Called ahead to see if this was an error on the website but was informed that no, they do accept reservations up until 9 even though they close at 9. I asked if I would be an inconvenience if I came in at 8:45 (my reservation time) and was reassured no. Upon arrival staff acted like it was a huge deal and terrible inconvenience. As soon as I was seated I was told I needed to order because the kitchen was closing. Food was rushed and worse than fast-food, even though the bill was over $50. I get it, I understand it's annoying when you're trying to close and a couple walks in. I've been there. That's why I called ahead and asked if it was too late. I really would have appreciated honesty over rushed, unprofessional service. Won't be back.

We were expecting something very good and were disappointed. It's ok, but only that. The service was cursory and the food was average. (Though the beet salad was very good.) Given the difficulty of negotiating the Avenues area and the slightly disappointing food and service, I'd probably not return and wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

This place has really gone down hill in the 6-9 months. Helpful tip: don't fall for any special. We ordered the "Shrimp, polenta and mushroom" special that had exactly 3 shrimp and 0 mushrooms, and cost $28 (which we obviously should have asked about). Burger was dry as well. Seriously, this place used to be pretty solid but quality and product have dropped. Won't be going back.

I wanted to like this place, I really did. The location is great. The decor and ambiance is wonderful. The beer is tasty. But the food is mediocre, at best. They're trying too hard to be chic and hipster. Instead, tone it down a bit folks and focus on a simple menu with food that's well prepared. The menu is too complex and even the food that should be good was poorly prepared. The mussels were over done. The steak was chewy. All of this for an over-the-top price. Our waitress was slow with the drinks and even forgot one all together. If you're looking for a cold pint in the Avenues, I would highly recommend this place just for the location and the beer alone. But if you're going to eat, save your money and go elsewhere. My table of four was greatly disappointed.

I have dined a number of times at Avenues Proper. The food is consistently good, and the wine and beer list is not extensive but quite decent. Check out the high point beers made in house. Prices are a bit on the high side for the food but the ambience is very nice. It is next door to Hatch Family Chocolates too for dessert if you choose not to have dessert at Proper. Standouts are the veggie burger (without or with bacon) and the Pomme Frites. I also like the chicken and kale sald.

A great spot for a casual or dress-up lunch or dinner.
Located on a street with essentially no traffic so sitting on the patio is pleasant.

This is a nice little restaurant and micro brewery pub. We don't drink so I can't comment on the beer but we do eat. The food we had was very good, no complaints from anyone. The menu was different, I had a beet salad and meatloaf sandwich. My wife had the mussels, these were very fresh which actually surprised us as this is a small restaurant in Salt Lake City. They were some of the freshest mussels that she has ever had and we have eaten in many seaside restaurants. We will definitely be going back!
