Discovering the experience of dining in a place such as Cannes or Nice was never easier than now with the opening of the French Bistro and Raw Bar, Avenue. The only difference between dining at Avenue and dining along the Côte d'Azur, is that your gaze lands on waves on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean. Avenue is located along our side of the pond, on our own eastern shores in Long Branch, New Jersey. This gleaming new restaurant is designed by the internationally renowned architect David Collins, and the collaboration is nothing short of amazing.

We dine at Avenue frequently and it was is always excellent in every way. Love the lobster rolls! Ambiance is very relaxing. Tables set far apart for COVID regulations. Looking forward to our next visit.

Overall experience did not meet my expectations. Food was good, but could have been better for the price. Service was not good. Ambience was very nice. Although I paid extra for my drink so that I could specify the tequila I wanted, it wasn’t that good. I had hoped for much better, unfortunately I will likely not return.

Food was great as always and the setting is beautiful. Our server was not attentive or pleasant. I’m sure it was a one time thing because usually everything is very good

I had to give my CC information for the reservation. When I came in they were going to just sit me without asking if I had a reservation,good thing I said I had a reservation or probably would have been charged for not showing up. Even though there was a capacity for indoor seating they sat everyone in the same section. Very limited lunch/brunch menu.

Beautiful location! Fabulous ballroom-like indoor dining area with water views, high ceilings, beautiful chandeliers and indoor fireplace. My ginger Apple martini was yummy. Had the trout almandine which was pretty good. Husband had the blood orange martini which he enjoyed and the Black Sea bass for dinner which he enjoyed.

My seabass was either over cooked, or it seems like a sole of some sort was passed off as a seabass. It was unbelievably fishy tasting, and not flaky the was a sea bass is supposed to be. The spinach gnocchi was very hard. sauce was sub par.
Other then the wine, nothing great to say about this place. The reason we chose this is for the view of the ocean while we ate, we
