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

My friends and I weren't disappointed. This is a stylish restaurant with food to match. BYOB is a bit of a hassle, but didn't detract from our experience. Service was friendly and very polished. I had the Wagu beef meatloaf which is regular on the menu - delicious. Many entrees and sides change daily or weekly, so I won't go... More

We were introduced to Avenue B when visiting Pittsbugh recently, by some friends who go there often. We had a fabulous evening there. We had a comfortable table for 6. The restaurant was very crowded (despite it being after 7:30pm on a wednesday), but the noise level was not an issue. The service was great - very attentive, warm and... More

Party of 4 - we had lots of wine and lots to talk about but first the food - just delicious and creative. Would totally return for the food (and the company). However, it was prime time on Saturday night, the place was packed and the decibel level, as it is in many restaurants, was very high. Otherwise, a totally... More

First, Avenue B does not have a liquor license, so it's BYOB. If you do bring your own wine, they will uncork it and pour it and they do have wine glasses. Cozy but upscale atmosphere. Menu is on a chalkboard, looks to change regularly. I ordered the fish and chips. Walleye, mixes with potato and cole slaw. I'm not... More

I tried Avenue B with a group of 3 friends a couple months back and we all agreed that it was one of the best places that we have dined in Pittsburgh. We ordered several different appetizers, sides, entrees, and desserts. Everything we tried was phenomenal. Food was fresh, portions large for the price, and there was something for varying... More

What I like about going to a new restaurant with friends is being able to order and share just about everything on the menu. I believe we tried nearly the entire menu between the 8 of us sharing bites. The appetizer variety was quite diverse from smoked trout to mussels to soft shelled crab to pork pate. I am not... More

Absolutely killer menu not real big but covers the whole spectrum from carnivores to vegan. The muscles appetizer was fantastic, wagyu meatloaf out did itself. Byob with very resonable corking was perfect. Prices are very appropriate for the quality
