Twice we walked in to Avalon and twice we were totally ignored by waiting staff (even though there were plenty of them around) My absolute pet hate is staff walking by you and not even acknowledging you - if someone gives me a nod and a smile I am happy to wait. We had walked maybe a block when someone... More

We were finished with dinner at the Lost Coast, wandering around Eureka when we happened upon the Avalon, the first thing I noticed was the special Cosmo on the drinks menu, they infuse their vodka with Ginger. I had to have one. What a great place to sit and chill out, lovely big open room with comfy chairs and couches... More

Met a blind date for my first visit to the Avalon. The restaurant was impressive and the owner/hostess was/is a gem. When my date was late we sat and chatted between her seating others. I don't know how I missed this eatery in the past but the food was wonderful (the best stake I have had in a very long... More

We spent valentines day dinner at Avalon. The atmosphere is warm and intimate. They have a small menu. I believe it changes regularly bases on what it in season. You've got to love a place with a chef who cooks so well that you dont even put salt and pepper on the table because you don't need it. Our server... More

I had the sturgeon and the bed of asparagus was woody and bitter. My partner had a burger and i tried a bite and the meat had no flavor what so ever, the bun was salty and so were the fries. We thought at least they could get dessert right so we ordered the creme brule and it was watery... More

From salad to dessert the meal was excellent. The cocktails and wine were incredible as well. It was a bit pricey but well worth the price.

I am happy you had a nice evening with Avalon and took the time to compliment us. I was unable to be in the restaurant on the night you came in, and I have great confidence in the skilled and caring staff, kitchen to dining room, they all are focused on the guest and a great experience. I hope we... More

Three of us recently paid a visit to Avalon. We were told we needed reservations (which we did), however when we arrived quite late, there were only two other couples and they were getting ready to leave. We had the place to ourselves! We had the best attention from our waiter and appreciated his recommendations. The wine went perfectly with... More

We were staying in Eureka for one night and asked at the hotel where we ought to go for dinner. They mentioned a restaurant, but when we got there it was fully booked so we just wandered off. We saw Avalon, but there were no guests. We ventured inside anyway and were greeted by a very nice waiter. The restaurant... More

Small plates ( ie Tapas), along with normal entrees, are offered here in a beautiful, rich wood decorated, with 16 foot ceilings, restaurant. Much more than an oyster bar(!!!), and there were none on the menu. Open layout with couches in bar and very nice wood tables. Food was superb. We shared 4 small plates and it was plenty. The...
