Had an amazing dinner, drink and dessert (they have a very gluten friendly menu and knowledgeable staff, especially Kelly), and my two big dogs and I were able to sit in the super nice heated porch area. Wish I lived closer.

My experience is that, no, Avenue M does not accept reservations, except for private parties and large groups. However, it's a fairly large restaurant, and I've never had to wait more than a few minutes.
