We love dropping in for a good steak or sandwich. Tried the mushroom appetizer and liked it so much we asked for - and received! - the recipe. The chef brought it to us herself and said to feel free to call if we had any questions about it. Very kind and appreciated.

Celebrating a birthday with 8 friends who all have diverse taste. The server, appetizers, and dinner food was all amazing. The crab cake appetizer was one of the meatiest crab cakes I have had in a restaurant in a long while. The brussel sprouts were crispy and delicious and the filet was cooled to perfection, medium rare plus. Others had fish and various sides to which they all thoroughly enjoyed. As someone who is a true Flemings patron, I believe The Avenue has surpassed it after this first time visit.

Our table was late and the manager went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable especially the kids. They made my mom’s birthday special.
Thanks!

The meal was absolutely delicious but I would not go back because it was entirely too noisy for my tastes. Between the people chatter and the loud music it was a distraction from the fine food.

Last time I was there for happy hour they had empty tables in the bar but I was told they were reserved- I was told I could call and reserve next time. So this time I made a reservation and specifically said we wanted to sit in the bar- got there on time and was told sorry there is no room in the bar. When I said I reserved a table in the bar the hostess said very robotically “we strive to please all our customers”... didn’t really address the problem and apparently they didn’t strive to please me. Sat in the dining room (changed the whole vibe of our get together) and when the server brought our menus we ask for happy hour menus which didn’t seem to please her. Food was fine but nothing really fabulous. Will probably take it out of our rotation.

The restaurant t was not crowded but my husband had to wait 20 minutes for a second glass of wine. A server other than ours eventually brought it when she noticed his empty glass. I ordered soup and a salad. The soup was so salty I didn't finish it. My husband ordered a $38.00 steak which was tough and bland. The manager did not approach our table at any time during our meal.

Never going back.

Food took a very long time to come out and most of it arrived cold and 2 of the steaks were not cooked properly. The manager did adjust the bill and comp for dessert so the acknowledgement was very appreciated.

The food was good, but our server seemed a little overwhelmed. Nothing unusual for a busy Saturday night. The manager was very apologetic and unexpectedly bought us dessert for the delay in our food arriving. The food was very good and the over all experience was very nice.

It was a busy night to be celebrating a birthday, but from start to finish we were rushed by the server. In fact, the servers were rushing by so fast at our 2-top that I had to put on my coat because of the breeze. Wish I were joking. I think this was probably a one-off. We always enjoy the food and the atmosphere and have always had exceptional service. Just a little less pleasant for wanting to linger over a romantic dinner.

I've been to the Avenue Steak Tavern many times and this is the first negative experiences I've had, but it was pretty severe from a good quality standpoint. I haven't been to the restaurant in roughly 6 months, but something felt off about the experience this time around.

First...I want to preface this with the fact that the service was impeccable. The wait staff and manager were amazing and accommodating but the food and especially the steak...the core of the restaurant...was extremely disappointing.

I ordered the NY Strip, medium rare, and it came to the table completely cooked through....my date's steak was also overcooked. I'm not the kind of person to complain or really ever write reviews, but it was so obvious that I had to say something. Even the waitress cringed when she saw how the steak was cooked.

The staff sent back the steaks and brought out new ones and while mine was cooked appropriately the second time, the steak itself tasted like a poor cut. My date's steak looked like beef jerky because it was so cooked-through. At this point, we simply wanted to eat what we could and get out of the restaurant. Something has changed in the kitchen at the Avenue Steak Tavern and it's not remotely close to the quality I've come to expect from past visits.

I love Cameron Mitchell restaurants and never had a problem, but I can't recommend anyone try the Avenue Steak Tavern. I'll continue going to other restaurants within the group but won't return to the Avenue.

Our dining experience was great from start to finish. The lobster tails were fresh and delicious!

Parking was a pain around 7pm (obviously not The Avenue's fault). So I'd suggest show up a few minutes early if you don't do valet.

Outstanding! Wonderful! Amazing! Perfect every time! This is where my husband and I celebrate our anniversary each year. The steak is absolutely delicious. The best we’ve ever had. Service is great. Cute location. They gave us a free dessert to celebrate. It really is exceptional. Highly recommend.

After going to several Cameron Mitchell restaurants over the years, this in my opinion ranks as one of the bests! The food was absolutely delicious and the service was great! The creamiest mashed potatoes I’ve ever had! Look forward to going back!

As always it was an amazing experience at The Avenue. This is hands down the best value for higher end dining since all entrees comes with a salad and side. Handcrafted cocktails are another high point.
