The service and food were great. The server, Samantha, took special care to make sure the kitchen was aware of the food allergies for one of the guests. Prepared and presented well. It was an enjoyable “date night” out.

Great dinner! I had the special rib-eye. It was prepared perfectly and the end of summer corn tomato salad was the perfect accompaniment. Service was friendly and attentive. One of our local favorites!

My dinner companion enjoyed the salmon. I had the farro bowl which was delicious. The pear sorbet dessert was bland. I’ve always liked Avenue, but find it a bit overpriced.

We ended up grabbing the last 2 bar seats and the new bartender was great! She was friendly and attentive with everyone at the bar, while still being able to handle the orders from the tables. Food and drinks are always great. Can’t wait to go back!

We went to avenue for the first time for my birthday dinner. our server was fantastic, he was so knowledgeable about the menu and he was really friendly as well! The food was some how even better, I got the rib eye, it was incredible and the potato, corn, mushroom side it came with was equally as delicious. My husband got the ribs and they were also amazing, they had a very unique blueberry bbq sauce that was so yummy! Dessert and drinks were great too! 10/10 will be returning

Busy night, server seemed new. Ordered a gin and tonic which I think came as water and gin. No fizz. Was told that’s their particular tonic? Cod dish came with tiny spaetzel. Hard to find in the sauce.or taste. Bread ran out apparently so we waited a while but what we then were served was not even close to warm. Pizza was good. Bucatini was as well. Overall not as usual.

We dine here once a year. It's convenient for us to meet friends from different locations. The service is very good. We are left to sit as long as we'd like following the meal - we were the last out on Saturday night.
The salads are very large and certainly sharable. The mussels were terrific. The burger and fries was a generous portion. The cod was light and flavorful. The chicken with fruit was a generous portion.
We will return and recommend it.

My husband and I shared the barbecue chicken flatbread and the Rigatoni Bolognese. Both dishes were AMAZING. I highly recommend this restaurant. It's a true neighborhood jewel.

Been there 4 times. Ambiance is great, as is the service, but the food can be a bit hit or miss from an execution standpoint. It is always good, but not always great food. A good local choice though if you're willing to spend a bit extra for ambiance.

Ate at the bar tonight. Finally got to sit in the funky booth seat at the bar. Bolognese was delicious as were the confit chicken wings. Barbados is calling is an amazing house cocktail. The female Bartender was super pleasant and informed..

We've been there a few times, our new favorite restaurant. Upscale city dining in Medfield, and as of time of this review, open for business 7 days a week. Pretty good crowd even on a Tuesday night; glad we made reservations. Phenomenal service, and it is evident every ingredient in a recipe is to the particulars of the chef. For example, imported flour for the flatbread actually does make a difference; the crust was amazing. From the flatbreads and burgers to the top line entrees, everything is gourmet. The atmosphere is contemporary, and every seat has a view to the quaint Main Street of Medfield.

Since restaurant has been open, the noise level makes conversation almost impossible. I had requested a "quiet" table where we could easily converse. To the restaurants credit, we were seated at a table towards the back and away from the bar area, but as the restaurant filled, the noise rose with it. I guess that's part of todays' culture.

By and large, the service was fine. However, a pet peeve of mine is when wait staff snatches a plate, a glass, bread, etc. from the table without asking whether we wanted it cleared or were finished. This happened to all of us at the table giving the feeling of being rushed.

Avenue is a very friendly, comfortable neighborhood restaurant. The service was great, both times we ate there. Serving staff is mostly young, efficient and fun to interact with. The food is great -- simple dishes with some unexpected flavors, well presented and delicious. Kudos to the chef. We will definitely return, with friends, and highly recommend it for informal dining.
