Meals were average, no complaints except for one slightly undercooked burger. Service was fine but unenthusiastic. We probably won’t return but would not resist going there if friends chose it.

We have been going to Avenue for years. We love it. The food and service are consistently great and it is good for everyday dining or special occasions. We have done private parties, brunch, lunch and dinner there. ALL good. And note: I will never get scallops anywhere else because Chef Michael’s preparation of scallops is second to NONE!!!

I might also add that I am THRILLED that the gluten free lava cake is back on the menu. It is YUMMMMM.

Brought my grandchildren, ages 2 and 5. Kid’s menu suited their tastes. I love the 10- spice tuna!
Our whole party enjoyed their meals served by our friendly waitress. Only glitch, my coffee came after dessert was finished.

This place was amazing and lovely! The food was fantastic but the only thing I would consider to be a small inconvenience was the time it took to receive our food. My partner and I noticed that several tables were able to grab their food before we were even though we were there 30 minutes in advance. Other than that the place was beautiful and amazing and the servers were wonderful people.

The food we had was all very good with the surprising exception of the grilled chicken breast I ordered for the special salad I wanted to make my dinner. We loved the "Voodoo" wings and the fried green tomatos with burrata as our apps. The bread pudding dessert almost killed me, it was so good! (I think it was praline with bourbon sauce. Holy Cow did I spend a lot of points on that dessert!!) We'll definitely go back.

The service was great. Always friendly and polite. The restaurant is very clean and inviting. They never rush you. We had brunch for the first time, we had only been there for dinner. We had pecan french toast and a side of bacon, and stuffed french toast with a side of bacon. Both meals were delicious. Not the usual 2 pieces of bacon for a side, it was a full small plate done just the way we like it-crispy. Coffee was refilled without asking. Great place for brunch and dinner, can't wait to try lunch!

We went for a quiet New Year's Day Brunch. While it was a bit on the noisy side, the food was good and it was very Kid friendly, which was nice as our tend to be a little loud themselves.

From start to finish our evening at the Avenue Bistro Pub was really nice. The wait staff is incredibly friendly, patient and knowledgable and the food was just as ordered. Great burger and portobello burger, excellent caesar salads and a peanut butter pie to die for. Thanks to ABP for a fun evening!

Perfect for our large group! We had a nice baby shower for a friend. Service was great, they were very accommodating! Would recommend getting a changing table installed in one of the bathrooms. We have an infant and we noticed a lot of other families with babies, so although the restaurant itself was family-friendly, it was unpleasant having to change our boy on the bathroom floor.

The food and service were 👍. The only problem was the acoustics were not good. It was very hard to hear others at the table especially if the speak softly. Not a good idea to go if you haven’t seen the other couple in a long time. Again great meal!

Food was pretty good. The ladies both ordered a pasta dish with lobster in it. Both said it was kind of oily, but overall just ok. I had a filet that was delicious and my buddy had a bbq shrimp over cheesy grits which he said was really good. I’ll be back to give it another shot.

This is a place that never disappoints. Consistently great food, service, and ambiance. The wine list is moderate but carefully chosen and very reasonable (where do you find an Amarone for $35 bucks at a restaurant?). We have NEVER had a bad meal here and any special occasions we go here for, remain special, vs tainted by a bad experience. Easy to park behind the restaurant, and in good weather a nice outdoor back patio dining experience.

Four of us enjoyed Sunday Brunch outdoors on the patio at The Avenue and everything from the omelettes and the OMG potatoes to the French Toast stuffed with cream cheese was delicious. The only thing to watch for is the stuffed French Toast, because not mentioned on the menu is that it is brought out with powdered sugar and soaked in maple syrup, which was unacceptable for me. So I needed that to be sent back. However, our waiter was very accommodating and returned quickly with fresh dry French Toast with cream cheese on the side which was wonderful. The drinks were good and the banana bread pudding was amazing with 4 spoons! Will definitely return for Brunch as well as dinner and our NYC friends loved it as well.

The food was really good. We went for restaurant week so we did the price fix menu. A lot of food for the money. My husband liked his calamari and my butternut squash soup was tasty. The short rib tacos were good also. It got a little noisy at one point because of a large party. Wait service was very good and I like that it’s not BYOB.

Chef Michael and Co still getting it done right!!! Great service, a cocktail, generous wine pours, and close to home. A lot of flavors erupted in the Angel Hair and Scallops dish, and my wife and daughters chicken and fish tacos dinners were plentiful and “these are the greatest!” Quality and portion size have not diminished

Came for dinner on a week night. Not crowded at all. It was a comfortable place , cozy. Lighting runs on the dark side so some diners took out their phone flashlights to read the menu. Waiter came over soon after being seated but it took quite a while for our drinks to be served. The service was friendly and helpful. The appetizers were delicious. The main courses were satisfactory but not superb. I would come back for a brunch or a beer and a burger.
