We’ve been before but our latest visit was definitely a drop in quality. Not only did our appetizer and salad arrive at the same time but the entree was delayed...to the point that it was awkward. When my 6 oz filet finally arrived it was dry as if it had been sitting for the entire time I was waiting for it. Definitely no worth the price tag.

Not sure what was going on. Sat down at 6:15 as planned. Was greeted properly and server did a very nice job. The issue is how long it took to get our food. We thought we would give it another chance since last time we were there we did not get seated until after 40 minutes past our reservation time. Once food did come its good.
Thanks,

Great job once again, had to wait about 10 minutes for our reservation but they then gave us a couple of free appetizers because of the "long" wait. Steaks were perfectly cooked and not a piece of gristle to be found. Plus including a salad and a side and a good bottle of wine for $30 the bill was very reasonable. This has become our go to spot for anytime family and friends are in town.

Another great dining experience at The Avenue. Even though we asked for Abe or Yasmina to be our server we were introduced to another server, Colleen. She was fantastic, funny and very attentive to our meal and birthday celebration. Thanks again.

Steven was our waiter on 10/11/19 and did a phenomenal job with the service. He was spot-in with his recommendations and was willing to accommodate our special menu requests. It’s obviously a busy place on Friday evenings but having staff like him really helps make this a successful restaurant.

This restaurant remains are favorite in the Central Ohio area. The food has always been good and excellently prepared by Chef Jeff Lindemeyer and his staff. The restaurant is managed superbly by Kristen Luff. Although all of the associates serving tables at the Avenue are very good, our favorite associate is Janine D. and we request her every evening we go and that's at least twice a month. On this visit, my wife and her friend had the 6 oz. filet mignon which was excellent and I had that evening's special which was the delicious Chilean Sea Bass. My only complaint . . . I wish the Chilean Sea Bass was served more often.

Didn’t like how that we got denied a booth because all of the other reservations ahead of us had asked for that. Would have been nice if the app mentioned that.

My wife and I dine at the Avenue - Dublin every couple of weeks or so. Consistently, they have had what I believe is the best filet in town (even better than at the Avenue - Grandview!) but they badly missed the mark this past Saturday. My 10 oz filet cooked medium was served not much above room temperature and was very tough - quite the opposite of my previous experiences at the restaurant. I am hoping this was an aberration and not a change in their standards. Everything else about the meal was fine.

We had a reservation at 730, we weren’t seated until almost 815. We had two people drop out of our party due to the wait. They said appetizers would be right out and they took an extremely long time after waiting 45 minutes. We ordered drinks and we waited 10-15 minutes. I had sangria and it was the worst sangria I’ve ever had. Somehow it was bitter and watered down. They attempted to make it right but ended up falling short. This is the second time I’ve visited this location and I have left unimpressed.

We were seated in the outdoor area on the hottest day of the year. It was surprisingly comfortable. Our service was punctual and attentive. The general manager, Kristan, came to our table to check on us personally. The food was outstanding as usual and the drinks were generous. I had the twin lobster tails and my wife had the gigantic crab cake appetizer for her main course. Even the vallet was personable.

Very disappointed in the last 3 Cameron Mitchell restaurants we have been to. We made a reservation,
They sat us at the worst table in the house, we asked to be moved (this was a Sunday night at 7:00 pm)
They said no, every booth was empty, she said they were not done busing. Baloney, the next 3 groups that
Came in within 5 minutes of us, were all seated at the booths. Poor customer service, mediocre food, slow service. Overall, would not return.

This visit to The Avenue was my husband's and my first. It was E-X-C-E-L-L-E-N-T. Our server was great ... conversational, but not overbearing + helpful with recommendations. We started with the shrimp cocktail appetizer, which consisted of 7 generous pieces for $14.99. My husband had the ribeye and he commented on how amazing it was after every bite ... not typical for him ... and his side of skillet corn was one of the best things I've ever tasted. I had the filet and it was done to medium-rare perfection with the optimal amount of saltiness, with a side of delicious sauteed mushrooms. I love that entrees comes with a salad choice (tavern/house or Caesar) and one additional side. We are always up for splitting bread pudding if it's on the dessert menu, so we went for it and it was spectacular ... and on the house because we were celebrating our anniversary - nice surprise! The only "downside" is that we made a reservation for outdoor seating, but there were heavy black shade panels pulled down all around, giving it a darker, closed-in feel. I understand they're for sun blockage, but the sun had already gone down by the time we arrived. For a special occasion, I think I'd opt for indoor seating next time, but for a casual get together outside would still be nice. We still only have great things to say about our experience and can't wait to go back!

I’m not sure why people rave about this restaurant. The steak was under seasoned, the salad was over dressed, the banquette seating was uncomfortable and it’s so loud. Our server was terrific though. This definitely is not my favorite of the CMR brand.

Everything was great except our spot on the patio. Had I known construction was happening right next door (within 5 feet of our table), I wouldn’t have requested outdoor seating. Ruined the vibe a bit. But the food, wine, and service was excellent.

I love Cameron Mitchell restaurants as a general rule. I worked for him when he had opened the first Cameron’s on 161 and stayed with him and through 6 different openings of other restaurants. I know his commitment to menu, service and detail. The Avenue missed the mark for me. It was a very busy night, homecoming for the high schools, but what shocked me walking in aside from the noise was the decor. It was kitschy, not want I want in a steak house environment. The red vinyl dining sets, aluminum trimmed details and the tables, so close together typically could all participate in one conversation if you wanted, made the restaurant feel “rushed” to me, like it jumped from concept to finish out, too fast. 4 of us dined and our total bill was $537, which we expected for cocktails, appetizers, steaks, wine and the like. But what didn’t align was the service, while friendly it was incredibly absent. Dinner was hours long because we couldn’t track down our waitress and we wanted to order at least one more round of cocktails but never had the chance. We had our last round at the bar with a very nice young bartender. Our corn soup neglected to list crab as an ingredient, which was odd and a surprise, and it arrived room temperature. We had to send it back to be reheated. Appetizers, salads and steaks were good. Not great but good for sure. We couldnt hear ourselves talking to one another and we’re 40, not hard of hearing yet! Dessert was like an afterthought menu so we skipped it, nothing special to note. Irish coffee was good. We were there a little over 3 hours, from start to finish, before going to the bar, an incredibly long time. It was a celebration for two of our birthdays and we wanted it to be something very special. It just fell flat. I wont lose my faith in CM restaurants, I just would have preferred to spend that amount for a different experience on a meal on Cameron’s or the chop house.

How does someone that has built so many restaurants design an entryway a “waiting area” so poor? No issues waiting on our reservation but no place to sit/stand and servers (politely) trying to get to outdoor seating. Great service saved the experience

Only two real issues. Very loud due mostly to our table of 6 being next to bar.

Second, service started slow but all was well afterwards.
