Went here with two friends. Two of us stated, "Why haven't we been here in so long. We need to come more often!" All three of us loved our lunch. I got the Orchard Salad which was spinach, with almonds, dried cherries, chicken, blue cheese (I got Parmesan instead,) pears, strawberries, grapes, and orange walnut vinaigrette dressing. It was a... More

This restaurant is located in the Brookside neighborhood and has the feel of a San Francisco neighborhood restaurant. We had their $59 dinner package for 2. We split a Bistro Plate of bacon-wrapped dates (really good), had 2 ample salads, and we each had an entree (filet and halibut). Everything was good and we split a dessert which was okay.... More

We went to Avenues Bistro again and for the 4th time in 4 visits the reservation time was not honored. This time our reservation was for 7 pm and upon arrival a few minutes early we were informed that they were "running a few minutes behind." We went in expecting this based upon earlier visits but 35 minutes later we... More

From the small plates to more substantial offerings, great drinks, good service and relaxing atmosphere, this Brookside eatery is our favorite. We've never been disappointed here and routinely bring out of town family and guests here for one meal or another. If you like wine, they have some awesome specials throughout the week and have knowledgeable staff to guide you... More

It's hard to find great local cuisine that is independently owned and operated and still affordable. Avenues Bistro scores on all three counts. The lunch was delicious, the service prompt but not overbearing. Very nice atmosphere. We'll definitely be back.

Avenues has a wonderful Saturday breakfast/lunch combination which is a terrific way to enjoy a Saturday morning (and for the adventurous, try the "bottomless" mimosa). They do not serve breakfast during the week, however, on Saturdays they offer a breakfast/lunch menu starting at 8:00 AM through 4:00PM. We have been to Avenues Bistro several times for dinner, but not for... More

The 3 of us loved our lunch here. Salad was very good but the lobster salad sandwich was INCREDIBLE!! Also loved their fresh baked breads. Everything was delicious. The service took forever but I'm just rating the excellent food we all had!

We recently dined at Avenues Bistro on a second visit. The meal was really fabulous and the service was quite good. We were there on a Saturday evening when the place was hopping, but the staff has a nice way of choreographing their maneuvers to get through small spaces without incident or awkwardness. The dinner rolls are a wonderful size... More

Went to a favorite in KC for lunch today, the menu is always changing, always in season. The service is always good, but today's waiter was better than usual. Had a great time. PS. don't forget to save room for dessert- all made in house and only $3 each. It doesn't get any better.
