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.

Excellent atmosphere at this place! Started off with a cold beer and some fried pickles. Pickles were thick cut and amazingly delicious! Ordered the Feta Burger with fries and it was unbelievable! Super large so you better be hungry. This will be my new lunch spot so I will definitely be back!

Waitress came to take order for apps, did not come back for dinner order for almost an hour - our appetite was dead by this time. Finally ordered dinner, $30 for 3 fish tacos, was not worth $30! Appetizer portions were very small considering the price. Menu was not that interesting. Would not go back.

we arrived right on time and was greeted by an awful whiff of puke smell as we entered the bar area. we told the hostess we had a reservation and she pointed at a high top bar table in the bar area. we said we wanted to be seated in the dining area. She told us the dining area was full...we said we had a reservation..for dinner...she shrugged. We told her the smell was too pungent to try to stay in the bar area. She shrugged again. We left. The food was good the first time I went but the lack of service definitely turned me off.

Floor plan of the restaurant is a little of a laberynth. Food was OK, except for the fries which had an interesting twist to them. Waitress was welcoming and attentive. With so many spots in NY, I don't think I will return.

Great location for brunch. Near the High Line and Hudson Yards. Right-on brunch menu. Service was excellent. Seating by window near restaurant courtyard was perfect. In warm weather, try the courtyard itself.

We went for brunch and everything was great. Based on other reviews we got the oregano fries... delicious. We also got the deconstructed ham egg n cheese and the pork sliders. Both were great. We’ll be back!

We were seated in a private room and our service was very slow. The ambience was cool but it's kind of a maze so our server had to specifically come into our room to check on us, which is not efficient. The food was not hot when it arrived. It was definitely over priced. I can't believe I paid over $20 for mediocre Tacos.

the service was terrible. our table for six was in a room adjacent to the main bar. we had to go outside and into the bar to find our waitress after she failed to return with more water and drinks. the bathroom in the dining room was locked, and remained so even after we asked to have it opened. so we had to go outside and back into the bar to use the restroom. the food was expensive and not worth it. we will not return.
