Friendly staff, delicious food. The tuna tartare is a must!!! It is an appetizer but larger enough to be a main meal. The veal chop , shrimp risotto, filet mignon were all wonderful. I recommend the berries and cream for dessert. Not a cheap restaurant but everything ,including wine and cocktails were above par. In fact we liked it so... More

I had just arrived from Las Vegas and a friend of mine and I made reservations for lunch at 1pm. I arrived 20 mintues early and the young lady confirmed the reservations and I was told that I had to take a table right away. I explained that my friend would be here at 1pm. The young lady said there... More

Very centrally located, just on a side-street of Champs Elysee. It has a rather brief menu but everything is worth trying, fresh and delicious. Be sure to try their oversized escargot especial, they are literally nowhere else to find in the world. Home-made foie gras was extremely delicious too.

L'Avenue is great; no ifs, ands or buts. The food is NOT fantastic and it is quite expensive. But the Smoked Salmon is wonderful (albeit too expensive) and the Steak Tartare is good (could be spicier, for certain). And it is too expensive. But one doesn't come to L'Avenue 'for the food'. L'Avenue is for people watching. Maybe the best... More

My first experience at L'Avenue was in November 2014 and it was OK. But since I went back to Paris in May for two weeks I decided to give it another try. I went in for a late lunch on a Sunday and was promptly seated at a great indoor table next to the window, my waitress was nice and... More

Paris has some lovely restaurants and some lovely people, unfortunately they are not at L'Avenue. I'm not afraid of a big price tag but I dislike being treated as an inconvenience. These people appear to have a culture that the customer is getting in the way of their busy work. And it wasn't just one person. Walk 100 metres down... More

Food is very good although I always ask the for prawn risotto and so the service - I normally go there for early lunch - the place can get very busy but if you get early perhaps you dont need to book or you just say you will order an bottle of champagne and they will get you a table... More

As always, excellent. Pleasant service, beautiful people, valet parking. Loved it again! Not cheap but worthwhile to go, in the middle of the clique shopping area. Idd you are lucky you can meet stars. We once had Ralph Lauren with Philippe Labro, also Patrick Poivre D'Arvor...
