Patio seating was awesome even with warm temps - shade and fans. Loved it! The food was delicious! Instead of my normal steak I had the Tavern salad and Nashville Chicken biscuit sandwich - yum!!Finished with apple/berry cobbler which was delicious. The service was perfect. Looking forward to going back.

Perfect night. Matty made it an amazing dinner me and my family visiting from Chicago. I can't rave enough about his outstanding service and kindness. And of course, the food was perfect tonight, as well. There are few servers in Columbus as experienced as Matt and we are lucky to have him in Dublin!

Chaz was a fantastic server. Attentive, yet not overbearing. Well versed in the menu. Our 1st time there for my 60th birthday. Nice variety of menu. Would love for restaurants to bring back chocolate mousse.

Made a reservation over a week in advance. Had to wait 30 minutes for a table crammed in the middle of the room. It was so noisy that we had trouble talking. Ordered $45 steaks medium rare and they arrived quite overdone. On the plus side, the Oysters Rockefeller were quite good and the service was fine. They offered to redo the steaks but we refused as we wanted to leave so they did not charge us for them. I doubt that we will ever go back.

Food was good -- but we were basically ignored by the wait staff. Got seated 40 minutes after our reservation and ended up sitting around for about an hour and a half while all the tables around us were served.

We didn't get any bread or utensils -- had to ask a bus boy to help us out. Sort of a bummer for the amount of money we paid.

When you pay $50 for ribeye at a high end steakhouse, one should not expect it to be tough and inedible. I took one bite of the steak and could not swallow the piece after several minutes of chewing. It was unbelievable. I ordered the steak medium rare and it was cooked as ordered. However, the quality of the steak, tough and filled with gristle, made it unsuitable for Denny’s. Shocked that a so-called premium steakhouse would buy and serve their customer such a horrible cut of meat. I’d expect a reasonable rib eye to have essentially no gristle at all. Not be covered and overwhelmed with it.

Our reservation was for 7:00 pm. We arrived on time and had to wait for 30 minutes while others that arrived after us were seated.

The server was great. Not her fault. The buyer of the steaks should be fired!

Worse dinning experience since moving to Dublin six months ago.

My husband and I celebrated our 26th anniversary here tonight. I was a little disappointed that we didn’t get a booth when I had noted it was our anniversary and we had to sit in the middle of the dining room. However our waiter Michael more than made up for it! He was very friendly and elevated our experience! The food was delicious also!

I have always heard great things about The Avenue so we were excited to try it out for our anniversary. For a Wednesday night, the restaurant, bar and patio were crowded so good thing we had a reservation! We loved the atmosphere … very energetic, somewhat loud but not in a bad way… it’s a fun place! Our meal was FANTASTIC!! We both ordered steaks (twin filets and the NY strip per a recommendation) which were cooked perfectly to our liking. We were also very pleased that the steaks came with a side and a salad which was great. I hate going to restaurants and having to order ‘a la carte.’ Sides were wonderful and great options … salads were very yummy and came out super cold! Can’t wait to go back!

Both my husband’s and my son’s steak came out rare. They were ordered medium and medium well. My husband didn’t say anything to the waitress about his but we did let the waitress know our son couldn’t eat a rare steak. He ended up waiting 20 minutes for a new steak while we finished our dinners. Not the 11th BDay Dinner for him that I had in mind. The waitress did apologize for it being undercooked, but not sure we’ll go back.
