Consistency is one of the virtues of great restaurants. Before you go out for a special event and drop a fair amount of cash, you want some confidence that it will be good. We first ate at 12th Avenue in 2008 and had a wonderful...More

Fabulous menu, great wine list, superb whisky list - all in a nicely appointed, trendy atmosphere. The 15-minute Uber ride was worth getting out of the tourist area and finding a place the locals truly like. A dedicated farm-to-table venue, the menu was quite broad,...More

Scallops and fish special were wonderful, and the calamari app was very good. Great service and ambience, would definitely return when visiting again!

More of a comment than a question. On the surface, lots of restaurants look nice and clean. But are they really?! The other night, we went to 12th Ave Grill and our son spilled his water cup on the floor. We felt bad of course since it got the nice laminate/hardwood floors with a big puddle of water. The server brought white towels to clean up the water. Feeling bad, my wife and I just went at it and wiped up the water. When we looked at the towel, the towel was virtually spotless. Just wet! Goes to show that even under the table the staff @ 12th Ave Grill takes care of their restaurant!
