    The food was amazing, the service was good. The noise level was a bit much. I did not know a DJ would be there. But overall a great place to dine.

    Outdoor cushions were DIRTY! Food was mediocre! Drinks were horrible. Waitress gave bare minimum service? No knowledge of the menu and other waiters came to refill water because she just ignored us! Definitely didn’t deserve 20 percent gratuity. And even when things that we ordered weren’t even right or they ran out , never offered to even accommodate us with another option.

    This was our first ( and last) time at the Avenue Kitchen and Bar. The service was fair. The hamburgers were terrible, as were the appetizers. The margarita was awful. Will never go back there again.

    Good spot to enjoy people and good fare and beverages. It's a loud place and acoustics contribute to the at times in-audible remarks from a very talented wait and support staff. Entrees weren't all plated and served simultaneously which didn't phase us. But a very kind and initiated gesture, we were extended a round of complimentary beverages. Classy and appreciated!

    Customer service and hospitality could use some major work. Issues from no one coming to the table once seated to greet you/take your order to extremely long waits on ordered drinks and food (no one coming to check in you) to being gaslit on how a classic cocktail is made, even by management (but them finally getting it right after 20mins, because they were too lazy the first time.) There are other establishments worth your money... Will not be returning.

    My favorite place in Hampden, in Baltimore. The grilled watermelon salad is to die for. Grilled Octopus combined with the salad is a meal all by its self. I have had fish, burgers and all of it is tasty. Oh and street corn. Just saying this is a place for everyday dining.

    Our server was James, he was very attentive and checked on us throughout our experience. He was the highlight! I made a 2p reservation for outside seating, unfortunately it called for rain. But there was no mention that the covered outside dining area wouldn’t be up. When I told the host I had reservations for that - she didn’t apologize for the seating not being up outside and proceeded to try to sit my party at a bar instead of an open and clear table to the back of the restaurant. A friend in my party had to press her for us to receive this table, eventually we were seated there. But we did not appreciate the fact that we had to ask repeatedly this instead of it being done to accommodate us. Our food orders were placed around 2:45 or so and took about 45min to an hour to come out. The wait was so long our waiter offered us something to hold us over in the meantime. This was my second time coming here, and the first time was amazing! Unfortunately can’t say I’d be back after this experience.

    Been to Avenue Kitchen & Bar a few times and every time the food and drinks are amazing! This time we had the crab dip, brussel sprouts, elote, mahi mahi, ribeye grilled cheese, and crab bisque. We kept talking about how everything was so good. Music can be a little loud but it’s very good and you’ll find yourself dancing to it. Drinks are delicious (and strong). Will definitely be coming back!

    Fabulous dinner at Avenue Kitchen. Fried chicken was amazing, brisket tacos were great, but the true star was the crispy brussel sprouts appetizer. We've had LOTS of these over the years. These were easily the best we've ever had.

    After reading other reviews, I had mixed feelings about coming here but I was not disappointed. Our server, John, was attentive, friendly and timely with his visits to the table. The food was great, as were the drinks. They have good specials and even make up for their mistakes (apparently some of the steak had fallen off the plate when it was being carried out and they cooked another one to make up for the missing pieces). The music for the evening was 90’s hip hop & R&B, which was wonderfully nostalgic to listen to, even if it was a bit loud because the speaker was right above our head. Overall a really nice place and fun vibe.

    I have given The Avenue Kitchen & bar great reviews ALLL the time, even referred family & friends who now visit regularly. I am literally here every week for brunch, check my reservations Lol!! Yesterday the food was off, our crab dip was burnt, cheese was CRISP and brown. My issue is why was it served to us like that? While my lamb was delicious, that and my potatoes were also very overcooked. Drinks were not as good as usual either. I don’t know what happened yesterday but i hope for a better future visit, for my money spent. I will definitely be back but my Easter visit was a fail😔.

    Just a fun night out with my man and best friend fried. The food, on point. Drinks, lit. Music, perfect. The environment gave me a nice dinner lounge type of feel with food that makes you at till your stomach is begging you to stop. The AKB fried chicken is literally cooked to perfection. The Mexican corn is something everyone HAS to eat. It’s AMAZING! Even the salad is perfect. This place is our new favorite chill and eat spot and I completely recommend
