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.

OpenTable Diner (New York Area)
2.0  Dined 4 days ago

I’ve been to Avenue many times and have always enjoyed the experience. We go there for many special occasions but this was a very poor evening especially for Valentines Day. The lobster pasta was lacking any lobster flavor much less seeing a spec of it. Literally you would never know. It was a creole lobster ravioli and the only flavor was lemon.
The amuse Bouche was terrible - cold and presented like an after thought. The waiter just dropped it on our table like they were 2 leftover, cold mini pastries.
The dessert was great however and beautifully presented. Delicious cocktails too but both our entrees were awful and please don’t ever serve that amuse bouche again! Very disappointed.

We’ve had numerous meals at The Avenue. However, we won’t likely be back for some time as the food was barely palatable.

Great food as a reasonable cost. Had an issue with the valet parking which was handled by management.

Enjoyed a quiet Valentine dinner, in front of the fire place and views of the ocean.

The food was amazing! The escargot was good but needed some more flavor. The steak tartare appetizer was amazing! The fish entree dishes were both well prepared and delicious. The drinks were good but a little too sweet for my taste. Great ambience and location. Great for a special occasion or date night.

We were seated in a cozy, quiet, romantic booth facing the fireplace it was wonderful.
We ordered from the Prix Fixe menu it is a great value.
We had Macaroni Gratin, Boeuf Bourguignon and Créme Brûlée it was all very good comfort food.
The service was prompt, friendly and attentive.
We enjoyed our meal.
