Compliments to the Chefs at Avenue Eat and Drink. Their Short Ribs are excellent! Avenue has a great atmosphere. I like this restaurant for the food and for the atmosphere but not so much for the bartender who had no-personality and Avenue's expensive wine-by-the-glass menu. The bartender was indifferent and answered questions with clipped one-word replies not just with me but with other patrons as well. I found the bartender annoying. And then there is the wine list . . . I accept that restaurants make a lot of their money with wine and cocktails and I do not mind paying a premium price for wine when I dine out. But here at Avenue the price of a single glass of wine, a wine I am familiar with, was priced well-over the price for an entire bottle. This Zinfandel, if I remember correctly, was priced at $15 per glass. This particular Zinfandel is a medium-quality wine that sells for between $11-$13 PER BOTTLE at the grocery store! $15 for a medium-quality glass of wine that costs $11-$13 a bottle retail is way too much to pay, so I had water instead.

In spite of the bartender and their expensive wine list I will give Avenue another try because of the food. Hopefully the next visit will be better.

Our dinner party of 25 was seated promptly at the time of our reservation. Our wait staff were patient, knowledgeable, helpful, attentive, and personable.
Our drinks were made perfectly. The salad was crisp and fresh. Our meals were served immediately when done from the kitchen, and prepared with perfection.

Friends took us to this restaurant near our hotel. Nice quiet ambiance so we could hear each other talk. Very good food. We can recommend the shrimp and grits.
