Three of us for a weekday dinner. We all ordered the trout almandine. I will go back for it in a heartbeat. Jeannie, our waitress was pleasant and efficient. They were not busy so we could hear. I imagine when it is crowded that it more difficult to hear. It was a great place for a weekday evening meeting place.

Restaurant was a great venue for a WashU graduation celebration. The restaurant accommodated over 60 people. The food and service was excellent. Vicki Tana, the events manager was a pleasure to work with, provided us with a great menu and allowed us to bring in our own cake. Everyone had a wonderful time and I would highly recommend Avenue for any celebration.

Avenue is a modern bistro. The vibe is casual though my colleague and I observed everyone from families to couples out for date night. The service was professional, more so than expected. The roasted beet and carrot salad was a tasty starter. The steak, prepared perfectly, was a satisfying main.

Clayton has the usual big name chain steakouses. Avenue is an alternative with more local flavor.

Experience at Avenue couldn't have been better - fun atmosphere, great food options, service was perfect, really good value for the money. We went with our daughter and her friends who attend college in the area and everyone really enjoyed it.

It took over 10 minutes for our actual server to come wait on us on a Saturday afternoon. The place was not even 1/2 full (with the backroom with the fireplace closed off) and we had 2 separate servers passing our table by over 5 times each with neither acknowledging us as their table. The gentleman that fills the drinks and cleans the table was promptly there when we sat down. We were debating on leaving when the server finally managed to come over. I’m glad we decide to wait because the breakfast food was great. I had the French toast with almonds and pineapple and it was delicious. The portion size was big and I managed to eat the entire thing. My husband had the blueberry and lemon pancakes and I couldn’t decide who had the better breakfast. I would recommend this place but would hope the service improves. I can’t imagine how it would have been if the place was crowded.
