I have always had outstanding experiences at many dinners at Avenue. Sunday night was an exception. My caesar salad, shared with my granddaughter, had little taste. My tacos didn’t take fresh. And the mahi mahi tasted rewarmed. The meatloaf was excellent. The lobster taco was good. Hope for better next time.

We had a really great time on Valentine's Day. We wanted to make sure we picked a place that would be toddler and infant friendly and we certainly chose the right place. Food and staff were great. Really enjoyable night.

We brought our family here for the first time to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Although the menu is limited because it was an occasion, we have been to this restaurant before and found it to be very good for a low-key casual dinner. Normally the menu is extensive and a lot of good choices. I would recommend this restaurant to everybody.

Not sure if I would or would not- the service was slow and kept forgetting drinks and food.
The menu is great and the food tastes good.

Our family group thoroughly enjoyed our brunch at Avenue. We are local but didn’t discover this place till a few days ago...wow! Service was attentive, decor was simple but attractive (think country chic), and the food (omelettes, banana bread, eggs Benedict) and drink (mimosas and lattes) were outstanding. We saw signs welcoming dogs on the patio (not in January though) so that’s another reason to rerun come spring.

What a little gem! We came for an early dinner on Friday with two small kids. Staff were accommodating and put us at a great table and very attentive throughout. Incredible food - the calamari were so good that the 3 and 5 year old ate most of them. My burger was awesome and the steak sandwich was wonderful.

Main courses for kids and adults were huge and consistently excellent.

This was our first time eating here, and the food, according to my husband, was"surprisingly good ". I had short ribs, he had a shrimp and lobster pasta dish, with a light tomato sauce. Both of our dishes are on the regular menu, because none of that day's specials interested us. We will definitely be back!

Appetizers were probably the only items we didn't like. I had the butternut squash soup which was too liquidity and my wife had the French onion soup which was the opposite, had too much of a gravy consistency. Entrees and desserts were good so that made up for the appetizers.

Lovely experience dining here. Arrived for reservations on a Saturday, and presented with options to sit indoors or outdoors. The inside was a bit loud, so opted for outside. Service was prompt and friendly. The food was delicious and well prepared. The menu was excellent, and made it hard to choose! I settled on the lobster Mac and cheese, and they held the bacon for me. Amazing!

Great food with really good prices. They had to bump our reservation later due to a plumbing problem AND didn't have any Egg Benedicts from the menu when we arrived... I wish they offered us some money off to make up for all the disappointments, but the food was good. Service was a little slow when there was clearly not many people there to be waited on, but for the price and the delicious food, I'd go again.

We've been several time and never been disappointed. Service is first rate. Calamari appetizer was super. The salmon is excellent. The creme brulee was disappointingly grainy. House wines were very good. Not a bargain, but an enjoyable white-tablecloth dinner out.
