The working ownership are true professionals who take great pride in every aspect of their fine reataurant. That includes, of course, their wait staff and we have been very impressed with Cindi, who treats all her tables with efficiency and at the same time graciousness.

Our family had a wonderful time. We started outside, but a unexpected rain and wind storm drove us inside. The staff quickly made sure we were seated and taken care of. Our server, hostess and other staff were friendly and engaging. The owner spoke with us for a good time and told us about her and her husbands vision for... More

Had dinner here with a group of friends. Our main server (young woman with a couple of children--one walked by during our meal and she mentioned him to us) was excellent. She was friendly, prompt and seemed to really care. Another server who seemed to be the guy delivering food, bread etc was kind of a joke--pretty rude, didn't seem... More

This was a great option in Avon as I didn't want to be in Beaver Creek Village. Arrived and was promptly seated. The staff was very attentive and quick to assist. I settled on an order of the tempura shrimp and the Pasta a la Vodka. Both were just fine - nothing I would write home about, but it was... More

I fell in love with the Eggplant Dip during dinner on my previous visit & decided to try the Happy Hour. Much to my dismay, they were out of the dip, but we tried the Hummus as well as the Crispy Artichoke & Friends, Tempura Shrimp & Rhode Island Calamari. Everything was very good although I felt like we were... More

We happened upon this place near the end of happy hour -- 50% off tapas and drinks. We must have tried them all and they were all worth trying. Pay careful attention to the gin/basil drinks and the fondue. They're addicting.

The cocktails paired with their tapas on the patio offers an excellent way to spend an early evening in Avon. I love small plates and great drinks, Blue Plate blows it out of the park.

I had dinner here while on a business trip, and the ambience and selection is top notch. The waitress was great, and the chef/owner greeted us. My group was happy with everything they ordered. I had the Tomato Bisque soup (soup of the day), shared a stuffed grape leaves appetizer, Trout Meunier, and Apple Struedel dessert (and tried some of... More
