We went out to celebrate a birthday on a Thursday, Had heard many good things about this restaurant. The place was relatively empty. We were greeting quickly by our server who took our drink orders. Since we hadn't seen on another in a while, we chatted to catch up. After some time, we ordered. They had a special "corn fritter"... More

By looking at the outside, you would never think that this little gem awaits you inside. We were greeted warmly , received excellent service and outstanding cocktails. The Bibb salad was truly delicious. I had the salmon entree. Waitstaff were so flexible in modifying sides to suit your requests. Everything was delicious from start to the coffee ending. Portions were... More

I have been to AV twice now and have never been disappointed. To me it is the best restaurant in the Scranton area with unique upscale food. The pre-6p menu includes a 3 course meal for 20 dollars. Make sure they people you are with order different meals so that you can try everything.

The best restaurant in Northeastern PA! Food is wonderful, large wine selection and the ambiance is great! Location could be better but it allows this place to be one of the best hidden gems in the area.

AV is an interesting restaurant with a weird location. It is right next door to an old Rodeway Inn which has seen its better days and looks very sleazy. The restaurant itself is far from the appearance of its neighbor. It is a fine restaurant with excellent food and service. My wife had roasted chicken and I had roast duck.... More
