I had a mini bday dinner with a few friends. The food was absolutely amazing the drinks were great and the service was excellent. They had music as well but not to loud where you couldn’t hear. Very nice vibe, we are definitely going back for brunch as well.

My overall time at avenue kitchen & bar was outstanding. Personally my experience would have been better if I had a different server. she was very rude she didn’t take our order let alone our drink order she never came and asked if we would like refills or anything. only time she came over was when we were finishing up and she asked if we wanted boxes. Coming from a server myself it was utterly disrespectful and rude its bo reason you could make it to your other table that cane in before and after us but not us, its no reason that the host on duty had to do your job *shout out to her💖* i’m sorry its not. I could completely understand if she was overwhelmed but the smallest communication with us would have made everything different. I couldn’t tell you my servers name if I wanted to, but other than the server I enjoyed everything money well spent…!

Our anniversary dinner was quite good on a recent Friday evening out with my wife. We have always enjoyed our times at this restaurant. However, this evening the noise level was such that we felt like we were dining at a Dave and Buster's rather at a nice restaurant. I doubt that we will be back on a Friday evening again as we had to yell across our table to each other to have a conversation. Good food though.

Energetic and enthusiastic environment for friends and fun, but was way too loud for any type of conversation at all. With only 4 tables even visible, the music was soo loud that the speakers were crackling and it actually hurt our ears. We asked the management to turn it down a few times, and they eventually did, which was perfect after that. Food and drinks both were great!

Overall it is a nice place to eat and the food is delicious, though the value is hard to justify. There are other eateries within walking distance that are just as good and can be had for less money. I would say it is a treat, but I also think that for a bit more money other restaurants should be considered. All in all, delicious, but in this middle ground area.

I had made a reservation for 4 people at 5:30. When we arrived we were told that there was no seating inside and that we could eat outside or wait for inside seating to become available. The whole point of having a reservation is so that table is purposefully set aside in anticipation of your arrival. We sat outside, our waitress took our order, then came back 10 minutes later asking to go over our order again. Even though she wrote it down the first time there were several items not written down that we had to tell her a 2nd time. It was over 10 minutes since we placed a simple drink order and she had not even put that order in. Since all we had received in 25 minutes was water our entire party left and went to another establishment.

Food was delicious! We were there on a Wednesday evening just before a comedy set which started at 815. The music was very energetic but pretty loud, we had to yell at each other across the table. A fun vibe, but I do wish we realized the noise level before sitting down.

I thought the caesar salad was outstanding..the tune poke needed wasabi...
I never heard of not having mustard which made the hamburger less appealing

This was the first time I've visited The Avenue Kitchen. I was looking through Open Table as well as they had a good sized group of patrons sitting outside. Our service was great and the Watermelon Slushy had a good amount of liquor in it (plus-plus). My companion had the Burger and I had the Fried Chicken Entre. The chicken was seasoned well. I could most definitely offer a better recipe for the Mac & Cheese.

We enjoyed our visit. Most like will return again soon.

I heard about this place about an hour before I decided to make a reservation! The vibe is everything here! On a Thursday night with a DJ it was the perfect dinner date with my bestie! The food was delish! I had the AKB fried chicken and my friend had the steak special! Presentation was amazing but the taste was ahhh-mazing! Drinks were pretty good too! Definitely will be back!

Went on a Monday and it was lively and busy throughout the evening. We both enjoyed outstanding cocktails: Thug Passion. The burger, fries, and Caesar salad were all delicious but the roasted mushroom tacos were outstanding! I almost didn't order them as there was no other description, but it was all of the other ingredients that put this dish over the top!
