Death Avenue, our homage to the history of our neighborhood is a hip, upscale Restaurant, Bar & Grill serving a playful Greek/American inspired cuisine. We have two lively bar areas, several quieter dining areas, private party rooms, cozy nooks and a spectacular 2000 square foot garden. Throughout our establishment, we play tasteful lounge music, have soft vintage lighting and hundreds of candles burning. The complete package is super cozy, intimate and extremely romantic. Our bar features cask aged cocktails, a bounty of wines by the glass and a beer tap that is supplied exclusively by our very own boutique subterranean brewery.

Inconsistent, bizarre service, good food. Went on a quiet a Saturday afternoon. Servers never appeared, had to hunt them down several times. Attitude like they were doing you a favor. Really wanted to like this place because when the drinks and food finally arrived, they were great.

Service was awful. Constantly had empty glasses and it seemed like we were bothering the servers and we had 2-3 different servers. Rude staff. Won’t return!

Ok this place was a little confusing. It has two entrances and I came to figure out with no help from the bartender that the ‘bar’ had a limited menu. But the ‘restaurant’ had a different menu. The bar side was deserted - we sat at a high top / the bartender behind the bar yelled across and asked me what I wanted. I requested a glass of wine and water and continued chatting with my friend. He then yelled for me to pick up my two glasses at the bar / wtf? And then proceeded to be on his phone the entire time. Not cool.

Dinner service was great. Noise level was low, so it was a great place to meet and talk. Food came out promptly, and over all was good. The lamb shank and burger were great, but the roasted chicken was very very dry that only half was eaten. Price is comparable to other restaurants in the area. Over all very good experience and will return to try the items on the menu.

I am giving this restaurant five stars because they went above-and-beyond to look after us. We were a last-minute booking of a large (and noisy) group for late on a Sunday evening, and the staff could not have been more accommodating. The hosts and servers were extremely gracious and tucked us away into a semi-private area of the restaurant so we could relax and catch up (at volume...) with some long-absent friends. The food was wonderful: most of us had tacos of various sorts, which were delicious, and the oregano and truffle fries were amazing! We finished with the bread pudding (fantastic) and the chocolate pudding (outstanding). Overall, it was a fantastic meal, though it was the staff that made this such a special evening.

$116 bill for 2 people = pita chips and three dipping sauces, three small tacos with avocado and shrimp, and a half chicken on top of some corn. Details: dipping sauces for the pita chips were nothing special ($28), the tacos were bleh ($28), and the chicken was very dry and the skin was chewy. Oh, I also ordered a Manhattan (cocktail) that was soooooo boozy - I sent that back (the total does not include that drink which they took off my bill). I am not sure how this place will stay in business very long.

Honestly some of the best food in NY! Would consider moving to this part of town to be closer to the Restuarant.

The food was just ok. Nothing was notably bad overall. It all just taste the same, and I think it was because they seemed to use the same sauce for multiple dishes. For example - we had the octopus - and lamb shank - both were way overpriced, and served on the same type of sauce/bed that it came on. The service was also slow and the waiter just seemed to be indifferent about bringing us our food. The tacos were good - but like 23$ for 3 tacos... seriously?

Overall - our party agreed that the food was fine - but less than memorable. I would not go back. I feel back as they did realize we did not have a great meal and tried to fix it by bringing out desert - it was again less than impressive. Cool place/drinks - just needs to improve quality of food.

Went to this place based on OpenTable reviews. The menu was limited and the server convinced us to order small plates of items. None of which seemed impressive or noteworthy, and all very expensive even for NYC standards.

The front staff and our initial waiter were very helpful and friendly, but toward the end I guess the staff changed and the waiter we had was in an EXTREME rush to get us out. He kept asking us if we needed anything, and then without us asking, brought us the check.

Despite Death Ave. being so close to my apartment, I'll be sure not to return.

The name of the restaurant says it all. Wow it was so terrible they knew it and never even attempted to charge me - the good news is they solved a terrible situation right away. Went to another spot down the block to enjoy an appropriate dinner. AVOID.

Very nice first experience here. We needed a spot for dinner before seeing a show at The Shed. Super welcoming and friendly service! Loved the decor. Food was mostly amazing...steak tacos, truffle fries, grilled cauliflower...only moderately good was the feta burger, which was slightly dry. Beer was great, and so was the wine. We will definitely return when we are in the neighborhood.

Very good cod fish, both in the form of tacos and as a main dish. Was able to sit at a table for four in a semi closed off area. Good sitting for easy to hear conversation. Pricy but so is the area in general.

The location was perfect for our venture on the High Line and Hudson Yards. The food was rather pricy and portions weren't very large. The waitress was delightful and even brought a piece of complimentary cake for my husband's birthday. So overall, great location but not the best value.

I enjoyed Death Ave very much. The food was excellent especially the Cretan salad. The service was quick and polite. I definitely recommend this place for lunch and then some wonderful shopping at the new shops at Hudson Yards.

The non native English speaking waiter was too distracted and not very attentive while checking us in or when seating us and going over the available selections. He then took well over 15 mins to get to our table to ask if we were ready to order, so we just went to the non-reserved section and got a table to hopefully get better service... turned out the girls waiting those tables were interested in taking away your plates rather than getting you your drink or food.
The drinks were pretty good as was the food, the wait staff was horrid. And the noise level and the music (selection SND volume) was terrible.
