Description: The Avenue Grill is renowned for its award-winning martinis, wine list, friendly bartenders and a welcoming, inimitable style. The Avenue is a favored lunch and dinner destination among the uptown Denver business crowd, as well as a popular neighborhood bar and grill. What attracts them is the unpretentious, superior service, comfortable ambience and delicious food. The menu is reminiscent of a San Francisco-style bar and grill with Asian and Italian influences.

The restaurant had a very elegant vibe. However, some of the food that was served, chicken, in particular, looked the frozen breasts you can get at Sam's Club. The Ahi was fabulous, the pork chop was a bit tough, filet mignon was perfect for me. My husband has food allergies and when he inquired about how a side dish was... More

We had six and a baby for a 5:30 pm dinner after Kinky Boots. Service great and everyone had a good time. Food ranged from adequate to very good depending on what was ordered. When the house wine was off, a new bottle was opened. I suggest dumping opened wine at night and always going fresh-especially with red. Since this... More

This used to be my go-to restaurant for birthdays, a great lunch or special occasion dinner. But over the years, the food quality and service has gone downhill. I keep trying to make it successful, but they keep failing. The waitstaff doesn't know the menu and don't bring the elevated level of service I expect from an establishment such as... More

A real restaurant, not a diner. Linen cloths, real cutlery and glassware, superb friendly service and great food. I am deducting a star for the TV over the bar. Try the mussels in blue cheese sauce, the roast duck, the pork chop. All delicious. 2 blocks from the Warwick Hotel going away from the back door.

I can't say anything but positives about this place! We had a lovely evening, great food, fantastic service from Eric (hope I remembered correctly!). We had the fig & prosciutto flatbread and the chicken & spinach potstickers as appetizers and the slow-cooked bison and the pork chop entrees. All were incredible. I did save room for dessert. Our waiter recommended... More

Excellent bar and restaurant. My salmon was cooked to perfection and the spring rolls were a tasty appetizer and not greasy which I can't stand oils.

They have a menu for all diets and everything I've ordered is terrific. The service is great too. It looks expensive with the white linens and set tables but price is comparable to other restaurants within a block or two and the food and service are better.

The Avenue Grill is more uptown where the locals hang out - I like that, so less tourists. Food was great, the service was great and it was walking distance from where we stayed.
