Good food but service and noise are horrible

If I rated this restaurant just on food it would be very good, but our waitress barely spoke English, she was not attentive in addition no one ever came by to ask how our food and or experience was. If you are looking for a romantic evening, this is not the place, tables are on top of each other... read more

We were looking for a special restaurant to celebrate my birthday. Well Avenue was perfect. The view the service and the food were all excellent. We will definitely go back. The only drawback, and this has nothing to do with the restaurant, was the parking. Give yourself an extra 15-20 minutes to find a space. Terrible.

Several restaurants in Pier Village, but Avenue is the best. Atmosphere / decoration are a tad Miami Beach, but it's on the beach after all. Food is generally French Bistro, with some American touches. Fresh and raw seafood are standouts, but for carnivores the Steak Frites satisfies. Tuesday Prix Fixe is a good value (hope it continues in the summer...)... More

Cozy fireplace with couch & chairs to hang out before or after dinner, which was perfect for a winter night. Food was good. Front desk guy has an unfriendly attitude. Big & inviting bar.

I live in the area and can tell you this place is a guarantee.

The only downside is that they won't... More

Have not been back since dinner on a s very humid summer afternoon. Made a reservation and had to wait over an hour and was then ushered outside. The heat and humidity were intolerable.

David, I am so sorry you weren't happy with your seating arrangements when you were in last. We're not sure what night you were in, but it sounds like we may have been reserved for a private affair. When this happens, we seat other guests with no table preferences outside. I'm so sorry this wasn't more clearly communicated when you... More
