Great place

This is a great restaurant. Fancy southern food can't be beat. Deviled eggs were fantastic. Grouper was wonderful as were the shrimp and grits. Highly recommend.

Great food and ambiance. Food and bar offerings are interesting. Great place to meet friends just for drinks or stay for a great meal.

I like Avenue. The place is trendy and always pretty busy. I had dinner there recently and have to say that I was kinda impressed. The service was very good, the drinks on the mark and the food? Impressive. I had a seared Tuna salad that was pretty amazing. And then, I was told to try their Buffalo chicken pizza.... More

The meal was outstanding as was the service. We did have a reservation and they did seat other parties before us. That was the only negative. I had the lemon grouper. Fantastic! Everyone at the table loved their dinner and were talking about the meal the next day. A great sign that the experience was very nice!

I went with a colleague for a business dinner at the recommendation of a friend. It was a Wednesday night and quite busy. We did not have a reservation and were told it would be an hour for a table. We lucked out and got a table in the bar (which is first come, first served seating) within minutes. I... More

Actual chic restaurant in downtown Tallahassee. It seems all the hip adults like to go here and sip some nice wine while listening into important people's conversations.

I came here for a business lunch and will not be back again. If a restaurant is going to charge $13.00 for a humus appetizer, a) it should be good, and b) you should recognize that your prices will create an expectation of superior service and you must staff accordingly. We waited 15 minutes just for water, another 40 for... More

Go here for drinks not for food. It definitely is one of the few nice restaurants in Tally but their food is nothing special. And you have to pay a lot of money for the mediocre food. I once had their pork chop dish with eggs of my choice and my server never asked me how I'd like my eggs... More

I was only in for drinks and appetizers but spoke to others there and wound up staying for a full meal. Wow, this place has probably the best filet in the City. We could not get enough of the little lamb chops. Food was top tier, bartender can (and did) mix everything we could throw at him without missing a... More

I have always brought clients here and regretfully did that today. It took ten minutes to get water, then they forgot about the appetizer until well after lunch was served, then, they forgot about the side item until I pointed it out. Service, which is usually great, was non-existent. The appetizer wasn't even cooked properly which was disappointing because I... More
