Really good food

The food was really good, but be prepared... Most of the creations are quite heavy. We had the routine to start which was sweet potato fries with cheddar cheese and pork belly. Sooo good. Then my husband's meatloaf came out (feta chove potatoes, juicy meatloaf, fried onions) and my pot roast pasta... read more

Had a very enjoyable lunch. Took advantage of their lunch special and was thoroughly pleased. The food was excellent and the portions were more than adequate. Service was excellent. The next time we are in town hope to take advantage of their evening menu. It looked equally inviting. (BYOB)

Dining during the holidays can always be tricky as you have diners who are out for an occasion and may not dine out frequently and you have crowds at some restaurants. We all (7) enjoyed the restaurant and I look forward to another evening at Avenue B to try more of the menu!!

Have been going there for couple of years at least and have never been disappointed. This is actually very uncommon as i can say this only about two restaurants. Among appetizers the mussels and raw deal are very good. It is more difficult to comment about entrees as they serve what i think is the best steak in Pittsburgh. Perfect... More

I really can't find much wrong with this place. They know food and they know how to serve it. Food is fresh, presented beautifully and very good. If I had to say anything bad, it would be the portions, but then you get a chance to try the apps. Go for the splurge and do it.

This trendy place has a limited, but creative menu. Our entrees, especially its Wagyu Beef Meatloaf was were delicious, as was the unique croissant caramel bread pudding. Service was excellent.

My co-worker and I got take out. $16 Waygu burger was not worth it! It did not taste like Waygu beef and the fries were a bit over cooked.

I enjoyed going to Avenue B on a Saturday night to celebrate a birthday dinner. I like the idea of BYOB since I think you save a lot of money and it is not too much trouble to carry in a bottle of your favorite wine. I had the braised lamb & creamy polenta that was very flavorful and the... More
