Avery serves modern California-influenced food with Asian inflections in a lively, relaxed setting. The seasonally changing menu is bright, bold, and seafood-dominant while the beverage menu is eclectic, focusing largely on sake and Champagne.

Avery is led by Chef/Owner Rodney Wages who came up at some of the country's most respected kitchens, including The French Laundry, Menu, Atelier Crenn, and Saison. He brings his unique style of cooking to Avery. You will see him in the kitchen every night!

    Great effort but simply too pricey for just a few bites of food.

    The food is really amazing. The customer service is good but not flawless. The food is well worth every penny and I would look forward to another visit. Highly recommend Avery

    The food was lovely though the lamb was slightly underwhelming. The only issue was it was noisy and cold. Could maybe do with some sound dampening walls?

    We had a wonderful dinner at Avery. The restaurant is beautiful and elegant in a restrained way. Our waiter established a pleasant relationship. The meal was well paced. In reviewing the food, we felt some dishes were overly complicated. The multiple flavors lessened the taste rather than complemented the dish. Our favorite dishes were the opening soup, the oysters and the tortellini en brodo. In reflection, we appreciated our experience but likely would not spend $600 on a return visit.

    First, let me give some context that I've been fortunate to have eaten at other high-end, prix fixe restaurants in SF: Saison, Omakase, Kusakabe, Michael Mina, Atelier Crenn, Robin, etc.  I enjoy food and dining and don't mind spending money for an awesome experience.  Unfortunately, this was anything but, and I CANNOT RECOMMEND AVERY TO ANYONE. I like the neighborhood (State Bird and the Progress are right across the street) and knew I wasn't going downtown, but the space itself is dark and odd feeling.  More than anything it feels really unfinished (and not purposefully so). We sat upstairs which is "cozy", but the lighting is super strange and uneven even across a single table. If I had to sit downstairs it feels like an empty-ish garage/studio space. There's also only a single restroom for the staff and guests.  Both myself and others in my party were waiting for staff to come out of the bathroom during the meal.  Never been to high end a restaurant like that before... The service was super spotty.  Part of my party was seated before me and when we arrived (right on time for our reservation), it took nearly 15 minutes for someone to come over and offer us any more than water.  It's a small restaurant with a large number of staff and a handful of tables so this seemed unnecessary.  throughout the evening I had to constantly flag someone down when I wanted a refill and they never came by to offer more wine on their own.  It's almost like the staff disappeared between courses.  Our dinner also lasted nearly 2.5 hours, which while not necessarily unusual for a tasting menu was very annoying as I let them know I needed to leave within 2:00 to make a concert.  They said no problem, but then proceed to bring out the courses at a somewhat glacial pace. Once we sat down and were offered drinks, the server didn't explain how the menu worked - somewhat odd considering there are only three options for a glass of wine ($18 / $24 / $55) with no details about what type, etc
