Went there for lunch with my girlfriend and her son. Was greeted with a friendly smile from our waiter. Very nice and relaxed atmosphere. Food was spot on! The service was friendly and personal! All in all a great experience and I can't wait to come back for dinner next time!!!

Start witih the decor - hip, relaxing, private booths for dining and bar hightables and stools in the lounge section. Fun already. Add an excellent wine list with super service and gourmet island fusion food. Worth the price.

We've had lunch here a few times and have always enjoyed the food. Lots of gluten free options, too. Last time I had the polenta stack with roasted vegetables and cheese. Very tasty.

We strive to offer the freshest ingredients, and our oysters, calamari and mussels are... More

Gregor was amazing at accommodating a group of approx. 40 people. The food was amazing, the staff was extremely friendly, and the atmosphere was perfect. Thank you for making our Holiday Party perfect! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

I recently visited avenue after having a somewhat okay experience last summer. Ordered fish tacos and well ill just say don't waste your money on them. Flovourless and small and just so disappointing. I don't think this restaurant should be showcasing a culture of cuisine they know nothing about. Authentic Mexican is not their thing to say the least. Take... More
