Greatly disappointed with my dining experience. I was looking forward to having a nice steak. In the past, the NY stripe has always been a nice cut and well done. When I received my steak, I was no impressed. I asked for it to be cooked medium well and it arrived medium rare. The taste was mediocre. There was a funny taste despite attempting to cover it up with chimichurri sauce.

When I asked for my half of the bill to be put on my gift card, the server came back and placed the whole meal on my gift card using it up to completion. I had no intention of covering the entire meal for both parties. It was meant to be split.

The poor taste and preparation of the steak, in addition to inattention to detail with the bill, left me wondering if the dining experience has declined since my last visit. I was not impressed. Not typical for a Cameron Mitchell restaurant.

This was our first time visiting. I had filet. My husband had scallops. Both were excellent.

This is one of our favorite spots for a special date night - the food is always amazing, servers are fantastic, and we just love the experience if we're in the mood to indulge!

We have been to the Avenue before and really enjoyed our visit. But this time we were disappointed. It was Valentine's Day and I know they were extra busy but for a romantic evening we were put in the bar area at a high top. It was cold by the window and many people would come to the bar to wait for their table and have a drink. They were so busy that the bar area filled up quickly. These people were right up against our table. a girl was flicking her hair around while we were eating. We couldn't get out from our table to go to the restroom because it was so crowded. Our server had trouble getting to us to bring our food and drinks. As for the food, my steak was good but my salad wasn't good and the hash browns were tasteless and cold. My drink (a lemon drop martini) was absolutely awful. The server didn't ask me what type of vodka I wanted and it was made with Tito's. I hate Tito's vodka. I didn't say anything to the server because of how busy it was so I just left the drink. My creme brulee was over done, the carmelize was too hard and I couldn't eat it. So needless to say our romantic evening was not even close to one.

Steaks were excellent. Hash brown not as good as I remember...not as crispy on outside and very dry/bland in the middle

We enjoyed our evening and dinner. The quality of the food was excellent. We very much enjoyed the salad. We liked our dinner of the 6 0z. filets and sides but we were disappointed in the temperature of the food when served. All items were warm but to a low bar. The baked potato which is the easiest item to serve hot was sent back and Luke brought a new one.

I had the feeling that our meals were plated but not served quickly enough. It was not Luke's fault as he had his hands full with several tables.

Was great as always..Green beans/shrimp were great appetizers and ribeye/potato/caesar salad was perfect.

Value was good, but our food came out cold. The manager was very accommodating afterwards, offering to pay for our drinks and desserts, but when spending $50 on a steak and sending it back to get warmed up and coming back just a tad warmer and late, doesn't help the experience.

Amazing customer service and great ambience. I have had better steaks, and it was not cooked as I would have expected when ordering Medium Rare, but my husband loved his special steak that they did perfectly. Unfortunately, when you pay over $40 for a steak, you have fairly high expectations. I would definitely go back though. I would just be more specific with how I want the steak prepared! Great for celebrations!

The prices are very high for what you get in my opinion. I had the feature which was salmon and scampi, it was good not great for over 35.00. I also had the deviled eggs which were pretty flavorless. The service was great but the food isn't all that wonderful for the price.

Great service, delicious food and overall good experience. Highly recommend (just a bit in the pricey side). Get the fondue, the slow Tom Collins and beef stroganoff.

Celebrating my birthday, I love lobster tail. They are the absolute best, quality and preparation. . I also order shrimp cocktail, again worth the 14.99 You get 8 large shrimp.
My husband order a salad, beef tenderloin and baked potato.

Took my husband here for his 35th birthday. Our waiter was the nicest and very helpful as it was our first time dining here. We love Cameron Mitchell restaurants, but this one might be our new fav. Highly recommend!

This was our first time to the Avenue and we will absolutely be back. The environment was top notch and the music was on point. Our server was absolutely wonderful. He was so kind and knowledgeable and an all around wonderful. The food was absolutely delicious from the Parmesan green beans to the banana pudding and cheesecake. Thank you Avenue Steakhouse for a beautiful evening.

Another great experience at the Avenue in Grandview. We’ve gone here every year since they opened for our anniversary and my wife’s birthday (plus many other occasions) and they have yet to disappoint (knock on wood). We were seated right away (apparently a rarity on a Friday night during Restaurant Week) and they responded accordingly to the special request I made with our reservation. Our server was the perfect level of friendly and informative without being too much. Our tavern salads looked and tasted fresh, our steaks were cooked perfectly as were the loaded baked potatoes, and the chocolate cake is to die for. The only reason I couldn’t give 5 stars across the board was because it’s hard to call a $45+ steak a “great value”, but I’m a firm believer that you get what you pay for and the Avenue consistently validates that. Absolutely no complaints. We’ll be back soon.

We had to wait nearly 30 minutes for a table (with a reservation on a Friday). But the service was good and the food was excellent. The filet was cooked perfectly, and the banana bread pudding was the best we had ever had! My daughter has already requested we go back for her birthday dinner.

It was a wonderful dining experience! Tammy was a very attentive and knowledgeable server. Every staff member I saw was smiling and greeted every guest. I noticed that they really worked as a team, which was even more noticeable since it was a Friday evening during Columbus' restaurant week. The meal was phenomenal, to say the least, with attention to every detail given.
Thank you for a wonderful evening out !!
