Unforgettable experience! Our server Megan was amazing. We visited to celebrate a birthday and she went the extra mile to make sure we had a special and memorable evening. Her attention to detail and recommendations were fantastic! The food was delicious and perfectly prepared. We will definitely be back!

Food was outstanding; I had a fish special and the flavors were a standout. Service was slow but competent and the room was a bit cold but overall, an excellent meal.

The Avenue in Grandview was not a good experience. We were a party of 4. 2 of us had to send filet back because wasn't cooked to what we had asked. Waited 15 to 20 for that and one of steaks was not cooked right again. Got the Hot fudge and the ice cream was half a scoop. Very disappointed for my first visit to The Avenue.

I took my girlfriend there for our first date. I was nervous as it was, and I just wanted everything to be perfect. Needless to say from my review, it was just that - perfect. Obviously she made it perfect, but the food, service, wine, and atmosphere certainly helped! Thank you for an unforgettable hopefully last first date!

Fantastic experience once we got seated. Our server was excellent and made some great recommendations. The drinks were outstanding - the steak and pork chop were cooked perfectly! To top it off the cherry cheesecake was quite a treat! A really nice experience with scrumptious food. We will be back!

This is a favorite of ours. On this visit, the service was bad...long waits to order and for drinks and meals to be delivered, and the order was not accurate when it did finally arrive. But we usually have a good dining experience here, so I’m chalking this up to one poor server or an off night. We’ll go back.

I love The Avenue. The ambiance, the service, the food; this place has it all. It's my husband and I's go-to restaurant for birthdays, anniversaries, and get togethers. Friends ask my advice on where to go for a fantastic meal? I tell them The Avenue.

Our server was less than average. For a meal that costs this much we expect way more. There was a bar tv on which can be seen at 100 other places in town - If we go to dinner at a place of this calibur we expect no televisions or ball sporting. Our waiter was ill informed about the beer selection that in our opnion was dismal - considering this is a state with at least 80 breweries. I also noted it was our 16th wedding anniversary in the reservation and not one person mentioned it or offered to help us celebrate our occasion. We will be celebrating our future anniversaries elsewhere. Such a stark contrast to our great experience the last time we ate at The Avenue. However The food was excellent but cost of meal vs value is not great.

We were here for a small family celebration. The food was, of course, Cameron Michell fabulous! The service really made the evening wonderful. Our server was very attentive and helped us celebrate our evening. We really enjoyed this dinner!

I’ve been to the avenue countless times and have enjoyed it always. Tonight was a very tough experience for my birthday dinner. Our server was at the table a total of about 4 times and I ordered the special bone in ribeye ($52) - came out 3 temps too high (close to well done). The cut was bad. I was disappointed as I brought guests to the restaurant who hadn’t been there and I talked it up. I will return as I know it was one experience but it was just one of the more poor experiences I’ve had at all the Cameron Mitchell restaurants. Will give it another chance before not returning.

Had dinner here before Trevor Noah show. Good drinks, fantastic meal. Husband got the pork chop and it was by far the best pork chop ever prepared. Would definitely go back.

Made a reservation for a Friday afternoon visit through Open Table. Met up with friends on time at the restaurant and stayed for two hours. Paid with a personal credit card. About an hour after returning home, received a "shaming email " from Open Table stating that The Avenue notified them that I did not keep my reservation and cautioned me from doing that again. Apparently, The Avenue notified them that we didn't show. Bad Mistake on their part. Quite offensive, especially for frequent patrons. Guess that gives us opportunity to explore other restaurant options!

The salad was ok but not at the level expected for this restaurant. You will get a similar salad at Wendy’s

The steak was not at the ordered temperature

The Avenue is my parents favorite place to eat downtown. They don’t travel this way often so whenever they get the chance, we eat here. We celebrated 2 birthdays and an anniversary. John, as always, took great care of us and made sure everyone at the table felt like it was their celebration also. The food is always impeccable. My dad can’t stop raving about the prawn feature he had. Thanks again Avenue! You’re one of the bests in the company!!

It was our anniversary and I was really looking forward to having the twin lobster tails. Although the lobster was cooked properly and flavor was adequate, the size of each tail was very underwhelming.

There were 4 of us dining. Our food was lukewarm when it arrived, and my filet was under done. Not a great combination for a $40 steak. I've been to this restaurant several times, each time unimpressive. Save your money and head to one of the better steakhouses in Columbus.
