Had another wonderful dining experience and date night with my wife. Our server was excellent and was the same server we had our last visit. Sadly forgot his name or I would gladly share. Glad we had a reservation because it was very busy Saturday evening, but the food and service were clearly excellent as always. We shared the Ribeye steak and also tried the Meatballs with garlic toast as our appetizer and boy did it not disappoint. Thank you Anthony’s Team, we are definitely fans and will return again soon.

We were there to pick up wine and had lunch. We had our wine tasting and the wine was delicious! We ordered lunch from Josh and he was very nice and made sure we had everything we needed. Our lunch was delicious! We had the charcuterie plate,  grilled chicken Buggatini, and a cheese burger. When it was time to leave Julia helped us out with our wine order. She was very helpful.

The staff were friendly and provided excellent customer service. We enjoyed our delicious lunch in the patio and the misters were perfect given the very hot weather. We would definitely recommend Avensole to our friends and family.

Champagne salad dressing was great. Could use a bit more cheese and nuts. The cherries are a great addition. Fish and chips were nicely seasoned and perfectly breaded. Tartar sauce is really good too. Had Champagne flight and white wine flight- both give a good variety Service was the best part. Our server, Ashlee, was superb. Professional, yet personal and allowed the perfe to combo of educating and serving while allowing my guest and I to enjoy time to ourselves. We enjoyed this place so much we joined membership and didn't feel like we needed to go anywhere else that day. Balanced experience. Thank you.
